With love from me to you,
Here are 2 Quick Tips to writing proposals:
1. If you tend to procrastinate the proposal process, give yourself a deadline to write and send proposals for new clients. I aim for 7-14 days from the time they first contact me to the time they sign a contract and send a deposit. By setting a brief turnaround time on proposals I keep myself accountable! (Plus, my template, How To Write Proposals That Sell, is a huge time-saver in my workflow, too!)
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 up to 30 minutes to 1 hour to generate a proper invoice and up to 1 hour for the proposal.)
Are you spending too much time writing proposals for clients who haven’t booked yet?
“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!”
Templates Save You Time!
And they’re critical to streamlining your client management systems. If you spend longer than 1-2 hours on an initial proposal, you will love my proposal template!
