This little piggy tried to penetrate a new market, this little piggy stayed, this little piggy read his RSS feeds, while the other little piggy plays with his mobile phone, this little piggy jumps up and down on QWERTY giving you 5 winning elements of writing business proposals.

  1. Solutions: After you have written a lead paragraph on the company’s needs and problems, follow up with a solid presentation of how your business can provide solutions. The key here is to promise solutions you can deliver.
  2. Benefits: All winning business proposals, clearly outline for the company the benefits to be gained from doing business with you. If your small business can offer complete confidentiality and meet tight deadlines state it in your benefits section.
  3. Credibility: This is often the overlooked portion of a business proposal but all winning proposals glow with credibility. If you have worked with clients in the same field or have an award-winning business, then third-party endorsements will build credibility.
  4. Samples: A business proposal with samples and evidence of your ability to deliver is vital to gaining the winning bid. A small sample of your work can show your ability to do the job.
  5. Targeted: A winning business proposal is all about communication. Speak in a language spoken by your intended audience. If the proposal evaluators are from an engineering background or financial department use the appropriate jargon.

The only thing original in this post is the 6 word story title and the little piggy opening paragraph. The rest comes from The Winning Elements of business proposals.
