Running an agency? We know how important your clients are! Do you look forward to new client associations? Come on, who doesn’t? We get that acquiring leads is a difficult task. Don’t you worry! Click here to know how you can generate quality leads. Ah! Thank goodness! When you finally have a good lead, you wouldn’t want to let go of it at any cost!
Alas, it’s not as easy as it sounds. Your potential client wants the best fit for their company and there are a thousand other agencies out there, to prove that they are better than you.
But, we want you to have the upper hand. You can increase your chance of having this deal by drafting and sending the perfect business proposal. Here’s a guide on what a perfect business proposal should include:
Remember, you don’t want a vague starting. Your title page will be your prospective client’s first encounter with your proposal. Use this title page to introduce yourself and your business. You can include your name, your company’s name, the date of proposal, the name of your client and their details.
In this section, answer the ‘why’ of your business proposal. Specify why you are sending the proposal and why your solution is the best for your client. Also, talk about the advantages that the client will gain from this deal. Your executive summary should help the client to get a very precise and clear idea about what your proposed deal is.
This section of your business proposal is your chance to show to the potential client that you really understand and care about the problem they are facing. You need to get serious about this and empathise with your client for the same. Show that you have a willingness to cater to their needs.
You know the problem at hand and you feel that you are capable of solving it. To make your client believe so, you will need to talk about it in the business proposal. Make sure that the solution is customised according to your client’s needs. Remember, sending the same generic business proposal to every client is a big no! In this section, talk about the deliverables, the methods adopted and the time frame.
It is always a good idea to frame different pricing plans. The packages can differ in price according to your offerings. You don’t want to end up under-pricing or over-pricing your services. Hence, provide more than one option to the prospects. Make sure you clearly highlight the reason for the difference in pricing.
You do not want to end up in confusion after the deal is closed. To make sure, that does not happen, it is important to include the terms and conditions in your business proposal. It is a summary of what you and your client are agreeing to if they accept your proposal. Clarify the details about the project timeline, budget, schedule and more.
Don’t leave the client on an open note. Including a space for signature in your business proposal will make your client want to take an action. They will feel that they need to answer, get back to you and take action. If at all, they have any queries/ suggestions, they can reach out to you for the same.
