Proposal Writing Services FAQs
A proposal is typically a solicited response to a formal procurement (RFP/RFI) released or can be an unsolicited response providing a specific prospect with information on your company, products/services, and associated pricing.
First, and most importantly, every proposal response you provide should be 100% tailored to the prospect you are trying to sell to. Be specific about how your products/services can meet their needs. Standard boilerplate material will only result in a loss, so be sure to tailor!
The proposal response process is an intense combination of proper capture work, project management once the procurement has been released, persuasive writing to tailor your pitch, and editing to ensure one voice and uniformity throughout the proposal. Ameli can handle the end-to-end RFP/RFI response process for you, or we can simply come in at one particular phase to assist your team.
The most important consideration you make should be whether or not the procurement is the right fit for your company to bid on. After all, if you win, you’ll be on the hook to deliver the products/services proposed for a potentially long-term contract. If the proposal is a good fit, the next important factor will be to ensure you are 100% compliant and responsive to their request as detailed in the RFP/RFI. Next, be sure to extensively tailor to the prospect and remove any general marketing materials and anything else that would appear generic to an evaluator.
The main purpose of a business proposal is to provide detailed information on your offering to a prospect in the hopes of winning the procurement/bid.
In any procurement response, compliance is key. Always be sure to include as much detail as possible, including full responses to their questions in the same order in which they are presented in the RFP. In addition, include company and experience information, information on your products/services being offered, associated pricing, and contact information for follow up.
Many times it can be hard to know where to begin in writing your business proposal. First, read the procurement (RFP/RFI) and format your proposal to conform to the requirements.
Still stuck? Reach out to Ameli for help! We’re here to help you get started – from having an established RFP response template to crafting your Executive Summary and responses to their requirements – you can count on us to deliver!
It’s important in any proposal response to be as succinct and concise as possible. After all, no evaluator wants to read a ton of extra fluff in your narrative if it adds no additional value. Always ensure you (1) directly answer the question with a yes, no, confirmed, or other similar, direct response and (2) then elaborate in a simple, concise manner to expand on your answer to the question. Following this protocol will be a welcome relief to the evaluator reading your bid and often results in higher points being awarded since they don’t have to “hunt” for the answer to their question.
Each RFP/RFI contains unique requirements and circumstances that can make the response effort take anywhere from a week for a small RFI to months for a large RFP. Therefore, the cost can vary greatly. At Ameli, we have flexible pricing to work with every need and budget to ensure any cost constraints are aligned and costs are properly controlled throughout the process.
