Make your proposal to become unique
Because every client and every job is unique then it is important to make your proposal to become unique too. Don’t using standard font and text for your proposal because I believe most of the people use the standard text. You must make something different which can attract your clients to notice your appearance. Keep in mind that the employers may ignore the generic and boring proposal. Therefore each proposal needs to be made and developed uniquely and differently for each client. You must tell what kind of advantages and benefits and also additional value that you may offer to the clients if they choose to hire you to work with them.
Don’t oversell yourself to the clients
You must avoid overselling yourself such as prevent and don’t ever overstating your skills and give a promise more than what you can do for the clients. You must have a commitment to finish the project if you have made a promise to the client and don’t ever make your clients feel disappointed with you. If you can make your clients satisfy with your works, then you don’t need to worry anymore because automatically they will recommend you to their friends or colleagues. You must explain clearly to your clients what service that you will do so they will not demand more from what they pay. Use clear and simple language to explain all of these to your clients to avoid misunderstanding. You may also provide and show your previous works to your clients to make sure that you are the right candidate for the project. You must make sure that the samples that you provide are relevant with the current projects that you want to do.
Pretend to be your clients
You may pretend yourself as your clients. If you have put yourself from the client’s point of view then you will know exactly what kind skills that they need now and what kind of contactor that they want to hire right now? For the first step you can begin from your proposal. You can read the proposal and what is your response about the proposal if you are the client? Is the proposal quite clear to explain what kind advantages and benefits that you will get if you decide to hire the contractor to work for you? Are you sure that the contractor have a great interest and excitement in the project and are you also sure that they can do their jobs well and deliver the results on time? If most of your answers are yes, then it means that your proposal is perfect and you are ready to bid for the projects and jobs then. You must focus about yourself and what will you do regarding to the project. If you are ready, then don’t wait anymore. Place your bids for the current projects that you may find in www.virtueteam.com
