When writing a proposal for a small job, it is unnecessary to drown your clients in a large proposal document. Ensure your customer is getting exactly what they want out of the project with these simple tips.
- Keep it simple. Avoid overwhelming the client by providing an extensive document with too much detail. Provide the client with a brief but concise proposal.
