The secret behind writing a winning business proposal and one that will just be set aside is the presence of what I call the 3 Ps: problem statement, proposed solution, and pricing information.
Because proposals are so time intensive, it’s best to avoid starting from scratch. Most people start with a proposal template of that’s similar to what they need, then customize it for their specific situation. Templates will only get you so far. For additional time savings, and faster turnaround time on your proposals, software and more focused tools goes a long way and helps close deals faster.
Business Proposal vs. Business Plan. Quite often, the terms “business proposal” and “business plan” are used interchangeably, giving you the impression that they are one and the same. But they are not. A business plan is a “formal statement of a set of business goals” and how these would be achieved. These documents sometimes can be included in a business proposal.
Before you get started with your proposal, you’ll want to understand what a business proposal is (there’s a lot of confusion around this), and how to best structure a persuasive business proposal.
