Tutorials and resources for proposal writing and business development
We have created a better template tool than the one below, but you are still welcome to play with it. Click here for the new Template Tool, which requires a free registration to use.
How the template works
The items that are checked on this page will be used to generate an outline form with text boxes for the text under each heading.
The text you enter on the outline form will be used to create a rough draft proposal.
The proposal text generated can be cut and pasted into your word processor for completion.
In this version, only text may be entered.
Placed holders may be inserted into the draft for where you should incorporate tables and graphics when you get the text into your word processor.
The Proposal Template is intended for educational purposes.
A real proposal should be built around the customers requirements and completely customized.
No template can anticipate the needs of all clients in all markets.
However, if you are having trouble getting started, this tool may provide you with inspiration.
Please use the tool as a starting point and then, using your customer awareness, make any change necessary to achieve a winning proposal.
Select the items you would like to include in your proposal from the options below.
