How much time do you invest in a client before booking?
Writing a proposal is a commitment. And there’s no guarantee we’ll get the booking….so sometimes we push it off. And that’s not good for business!
The longer we wait to send the proposal, the longer it takes to book the event.

2 Quick tips to starting proposals:
1. Give yourself a deadline to write and send proposals for new clients. Try to aim for 14 days from the time they first contact you to the time they sign a contract and send a deposit.
2. Likewise, give yourself a deadline on how much time you’ll dedicate to a proposal. I think less than 2 hours is a good goal. (Even with a template a good, customized proposal takes time. Consider 1 hour to generate a proper invoice, 1 hour for proposal side.)
A proposal should be professional. It should be representative of you/your work/your brand.
“I have just spent my morning enjoying your tutorials and loving your course templates….
I have been hating proposals for five years now because I put so much work and detail into them. Your templates have inspired me to just simplify and I love it!” -Allison Schrade
