I have a proposal for you.
I can build you a house, complete with walls, windows, doors, and a roof for $350,000.
Do we have a deal?
No. I didn’t think so!
To make a decision like this, you need cold hard facts. You need details, clarity, and proof! You need budgets, breakdowns, and solid guarantees.
That’s exactly how a project stakeholder feels when they receive your project proposal, and explains exactly why companies only win 15% of the proposals they submit.
Project stakeholders will, on average, receive around 50 proposals a week. To choose you out of this huge pile, they need clarity, details, specifics, lateral thinking, and a whole heap of persuasion.
You need to learn the art of how to write a project proposal, to stand any chance of winning their investment, and increasing your proposal success rate.
