8 tips for writing a bid proposal.

Ready to get started with your bid proposal? Read these last few tips to make sure you get it right first time:

  1. Short and simple wins the day. Include all the detail your client needs - but nothing more. Your aim is to grab their attention.
  2. Use your proposal to explain the impact your project will have. Even if you have to estimate and use assumptions, show the client what they stand to gain.
  3. Summarise your understanding of the client’s pain point - and expand as much as necessary about how you’ll solve their problem.
  4. If your proposal is getting unwieldy, use an appendix for additional documents to avoid clutter.
  5. Dive into the detail about the budget for the project. Setting out costs - and how the money will be used - upfront helps the client make a decision.
  6. Use the opportunity to set out milestones, deadlines, and measures of success. What will your client see in terms of results - and when.
  7. Customize every proposal you make - the client will know if you’re using too much boilerplate.
  8. Use a digital signature to speed up the process after acceptance - and make it easier for the client to pay in their home currency using the Wise Business account. Learn more about the Wise Business account
