Simple doesn’t mean uninteresting because even with a simple business proposal, attracting clients is possible as long as you are offering what they need and want. Here are some helpful tips before writing.
Understanding Both the Job and the Client. You will never get the client’s attention if you don’t know what they want. Clients are interested in the business proposal that provides what they need. Without understanding through research, this is hard for you to know what they want. The first thing is to ensure that the job you are offering, which is based on what the client wants, is suitable for your business and expertise. Second, you must have all the resources required for completing the job on time. Third, you must tailor the client’s requirements. To get these three important elements, you need to talk with your client and find out everything you need to know. It is also necessary to see the client’s response so that you can easily continue writing and sending the proposal without having to worry about rejection. If the clients are glad to welcome your proposal, your chance to be rejected might be smaller.
Providing Answers in the Proposal. If you don’t know what should be included in your proposal, list some questions to answer. The questions can be taken from the project and the clients. For example, you need to provide the answers to who will manage and finish the job, how the project will be finished, what is needed to complete it, when it is started and why this project would be interesting for the customers. There might be some questions to make to tailor the client’s requirements and provide things they need to know from your proposed project or business. Even with a simple proposal, when all the client’s questions are answered in there, you have a bigger opportunity to win.
Writing with a Proper Format. A business proposal, no matter how simple you want it to be, should follow the proper format to make it look professional. You can find this information from some templates and samples. Complete the proper format with the right language choice. The best language is clear and easy to understand. Don’t use terms or words that would make the clients have to think hard to interpret since most of them don’t have the time to do that. When they don’t get what is in the proposal, it is highly possible they would throw it away and read the others.
Preparing your business proposal well before start writing is necessary because even a simple proposal requires a lot of time to finish with carefully planned drafts to lead you to end up with the best result.
