Proposal Writing Services To Help
You Write Winning Proposals
If you're looking for proposal writing services, you've come to the right place! We have information on costs to do it yourself or to have it done for you.
The key thing is that the cost of writing a proposal is just one part of the total cost of the project associated with the proposal.
The "secret" thing is that no matter what it costs you to write a proposal, it will all be wasted if you use the wrong methodology.
In other words, you must know what the winning technique is. Then, and only then, you can shop around for proposal writing services to write a successful proposal.
Our professional services focus on the big picture, the winning one.
Our professional services focus on the big picture, the entire package, the overall strategy. They consider everything including not only the proposal writing services but also the proposed project itself!
But that does NOT mean that those services are costly.
The next section explains why.
The Cost Of Writing Proposals
The cost of doing anything follows a simple formula:
COST = TIME + EFFORT + MONEY
Put a dollar value on the TIME and EFFORT and you'll have a total cost in dollars.
Now, unless you already have the experience (successful, of course), you'll need help writing a winning proposal. Here's the thing.
The more you try to do on your own, in an effort to reduce out-of-pocket costs,
- the longer it will take to write your proposal and
- the higher will be the risk of failure.
Major risk is involved. So what do you do? Hire a professional proposal writer? The big boys can and do pay for professional proposal writing services. They can't afford not to!
Proposal Writing Services Options
But what if you're a small operation or even an individual? You can't afford to pay the big bucks. It's understandable. Fortunately, we have terrific cost-effective options for you.
Option 1 – Hire A Professional
Professional proposal writers may charge up to $200 an hour. Donald Coggan (see the About Us page), the owner of this website, charges a rate that offers added value in two ways:
- His competitive rate of $100 an hour offers instant savings.
- His advice gives you the best chance of a winning proposal.
As someone who has done both proposal writing and proposal evaluating (including writing RFPs), Coggan recommends getting a fixed-price quote based on a detailed scope of work.
Caution! Whether the work is done on an hourly or a fixed-price basis, it will be expensive to hire a professional. The next option might be more attractive to the small operation or individual.
Option 2 – DIY/Share The Work
With this option the workload is shared. The company or individual does part of the work and the professional does part.
This can be as simple as assigning the tasks that make up the scope of work figured in Option 1.
Caution! Although this looks attractive because of the potentially lower cost, it does have a downside. Extra costs could be involved if the scope of work is not crystal clear or if the work you or your small company does has to be redone by the professional.
Option 3 – Get Free Pro Help
This sounds too good to be true! Yet it is.
When you purchase the Write Winning Proposals training program, the price ($89) includes a free 15-minute consultation by Skype with Donald Coggan.
Combined with the "secret insights" of the training program, this free consultation is usually enough for the small operation or individual faced with doing a proposal, often for the first time.
You need to know what it will cost. At the same time you need to see the cost as an investment in your business. You have to analyze the risks and rewards. It's not easy without prior experience.
