Find yourself struggling when putting together proposals for your business?

Do you wish you could streamline the process and increase your close rate?

Writing proposals isn’t typically a favorite activity. Most businesses use a boiler plate, and fail to customize each proposal they send out. Using a tool like Proposify can make proposal writing easier and help you close more deals.

This week on the Social Media Social Hour, I discuss how to create proposals that close with Kyle Racki.

Let’s do this!

Mentionable Quotes by Kyle Racki:

  • “Social media proposals typically have a 10-13 page range.”
  • “Most people get the executive summary and pricing wrong.”
  • “An executive summary should be written like a case study in the future. It’s not a summary of what’s in the proposal.”
  • “People buy on the value of what you’re delivering, not on how much things cost you.”
  • “Read up on value-based pricing. Don’t list your deliverables in your pricing plan.”
  • “I’m a huge believer in design and everything being on brand.”
  • “Never send out a proposal without having a call scheduled to go over it.”
