Where to Start with a New Client Proposal
Written by: Eileen Lonergan
Unless you have someone on staff who is in charge of New Business, chances are you are juggling your existing clients while on the lookout for your next project. I typically send out one new Proposal per week and as you probably would agree, this can be time consuming. I thought I would share with you my master list of considerations to add to a proposal. This list consists of services that I am able to provide clients and the components that make for a solid presence for any business on the web.

At the time of writing this article Creative Market has a free PDF Pitch Deck which will allow you to customize your pitch into a very professionally looking presentation. If you need a logo Tweak.com allows you to create a clean, professional logo for Free! If you really want to get creative when customizing your pitches consider the Producer’s Mixtape or use icons in your pitches to create a little visual interest, this is a nice free set from MFG Labs.
One thing that I have found helpful when converting pitches to projects is to include an About Me section. I include a bullet list of some items from my bio which are relevant to the project and a little nugget from my personal life (I run, have a dog, drive the carpool). The personal info may feel superfluous, he but it offers a bit of insight to me away from my desk and often acts as a conversation starter.
I hope you find this helpful. If you need some help getting started please feel free to touch base.
