Freelance without the Free Fall: ProposalsFaron Dawe RGD
About this video
Imagine you are in the middle of an introductory meeting with a potential client. The company is doing some great things and you keep thinking how this could really be a keystone project for your freelance business. It's exciting (and sometimes a little scary) to think that they are looking to you to help them solve a specific problem or grow their business. What may be even scarier is the thought that the ball will soon be in your court to offer your recommendations, deliverables, key project dates and fees via a proposal. The fact is that this is another step in selling your value and abilities in a way that is clear and concise to the client, enabling them to make a decision to move forward.
In this webinar, Faron Dawe RGD shares how he approaches proposal-writing by walking through the general structure of a proposal, citing important information to include and how to present it to increase your chances for landing your next project.
