THE 8 ESSENTIAL ELEMENTS OF A WINNING CONSULTANCY PROPOSAL
In 8 simple but powerful steps, I’ll show you how to craft a proposal that:
Inspires confidence in your skills
Positions you as a trusted expert
Shows you understand the client’s needs
Demonstrates your value as a consultant
You’ll also discover the most effective ways to:
Embed a project plan in your proposal
Manage the client’s expectations
Protect yourself from scope creep
Secure your payment terms
It can be so daunting starting out as a new consultant, particularly figuring out what to include in your proposals. Jacq’s cheat sheet made my life so much easier. It provided the information I needed about what to include to ensure I had a good chance of winning the project. It also helped me to articulate my approach, my timeframes and importantly, my costings. The cheat sheet sets out the 8 sections that need to be in the proposal and detailed instructions on what to include in them. It’s such a time (and stress) saver to have a tried and tested template to follow. It’s the basis for all my proposals now – thank you Jacq!
