A proposal has a lot of various purposes, one of which is the ability to get your message across to your target audience. Basically, what you send and write in your letter could affect what people think about your business. First Impressions are important.
There is one good way to write your proposal: It must have a force that pulls together all of the information in a concise and persuasive way and helps you get what you want. If it is a new product, a marketing strategy, or for work, it still has to be effective. For people in business, getting to meet a prospect client and presenting to them is not enough to land the contract. Most of the time, clients want a black and white proposal letter where details are well-written.
In the United Kingdom, the business population accounts for 99.9% (6.0 million businesses) while SMEs account for three fifths of the employment and around half of the turnover of the UK private sector. With more opportunities waiting for you, it is important to keep in mind how you should position yourself when you receive a message of ‘Send me a proposal.’
First, don’t assume that because a potential client has asked for your proposal that the company’s going to hand you the deal. The hard part has just begun.
Second, just because someone is receiving a proposal, this does not mean that you will get an instant ‘yes’ for an answer. Third, do not just send a proposal haphazardly. Gather your team and decide what information you need to proceed with a proposal. You need to have a full grasp of specifications and the entire scope of the job. By doing so, this will help your prospective client to accept your offer.
