Ok, so you’ve been tasked with writing a proposal. Maybe you don’t know how to write one or maybe you’ve written them but you’re just not happy with the outcome. Don’t worry, you’ve come to the right place. That’s because I’m going to give you some tips on proposal writing.
This website is aimed at helping people who have limited to no experience with writing proposals. It provides you with enough information so you will know how to write a proposal (whether you are writing a letter or something much more substantial). I wanted to write something you can read through within an hour.
Just a note, we’re talking specifically about writing business proposals. This is a resource for business people (not necessarily researchers or academics).
This website outlines what you need to know. These things include:
This section explains what you want your business proposal to achieve and how it should go about doing that. These things may seem pretty obvious, but losing sight of them will likely result in failure.
Your proposal, whether in a letter or a three-ring binder, will contain distinct sections. I’ll explain these different sections and why they are important. I will also go into how you should write each sections.
Writing a proposal is not like writing a news article, research paper, or novel. We’ll go over the formula to use and how to apply this formula to different circumstances.
Again, the purpose of this website is to teach you how to write a proposal. There are many different aspects of proposal development, but this website just focuses how to write one.
In my experience, writing is the most challenging aspect of proposal development. With the information provided in this website, you’ll be able to hit the ground running and develop a proposal that will persuasively make your case and win the contract.
Combined, these different sections cover the basics. I hope you enjoy this website and find the information useful.
