Proposals | Proposals and what you should consider

Proposals – proposals make up a key part of any consultant’s sales tools. As a consultant, you’ll be asked to write everything from back-of-the-envelope proposals to the kind of detailed proposals that governments request.

Five considerations for proposals

In writing any proposal, you should wrap your mind around:

  • Goal – why are you writing this proposal?
  • Audience – who will read this?
  • Details – what requirements, deadlines and dealbreakers were cited in the request for proposals?
  • Structurewhat’s the best way to arrange the proposal?
  • Contents – what do you need to include, based on the above?

With that in mind, work through each stage.
