You can make a strong first impression with your proposal. Introduce yourself, highlight your skills and experience, and tell the client why they should award you the project.

Keep it short and to the point. Briefly tell the client about your relevant skills and experience. Showcase specific examples of your experience related to the client’s projects.


Get answers up front

Ask clarifying questions about the project. You’ll show your understanding and demonstrate the value you’ll bring to the project.


Provide requested information

Some clients might ask you to answer a specific question, or to include a keyword in your cover letter. This helps them filter out generic, “copy and paste” proposals. Look for these directions and follow them.


Proofread, edit, and deliver
