The 7 things your design proposal needs to win clients – Creative Business No.1

Published Oct 17, 2019

Whether you’re a freelancer or responsible for handling sales in a creative agency, you’re going to be writing quotes and proposals for new projects. It’s a time consuming, yet essential business task. Get it wrong, and it’s going to have a big impact on your success.

The folks at InVision have written a great blog post on the 7 sections you need to have in your design proposal to win clients. While the InVision article is focused on web design, it relates to any creative proposal and is a must read for anyone hunting for new projects.

Here’s the top 7 things you’ll have to consider:

  1. Introduce yourself
  2. Outline the client’s problem
  3. Outline your solution
  4. Outline your deliverables
  5. Outline the process you’ll take
  6. Outline your cost
  7. Have a clear call to action so the client can easily sign-off

You can check out the full details on the Inside Design blog.

Happy hunting and don’t forget to bring donuts!
