10 Tips to get client attention with your proposal
What is your proposal acceptance ratio? How many of the proposals you send out to prospective clients are actually accepted?
As we all know that preparing good proposal takes more time, because we need to analyze client requirement clearly and need to work on each and every elements he wants. Then also we can’t say its a winning proposal because we can’t imagine client mind.

Do you think it works. If we are sending any proposal to client just check your proposal in client prospective. Feel like you are the client and received same proposal you prepared to send. Do you think its an effective proposal?
