How to Write a Proposal To Win more Construction Projects

Posted by Emily Watts on Fri, Aug 10, 2018

Today's Guest Article Is From Emily Watts

The construction market is very competitive, and this means that you should be able to write the most attractive proposal. The bidding process can be a little bit frustrating if you don’t know how to do it right. But learning how to write a business proposal will definitely improve your chances.

The art of proposal writing is all about selling yourself. You need to convince your target clients that you are the best for the job. Most professionals will think about cutting down on their profits in order to land more bids. But this is not the best thing that you can do. As a matter of fact, this policy can a lot more in the long run. A contractor who does this might be landing more projects, but won’t be able to improve their services or pay their employees because they are not making enough profit.

Kelly Paxton, CFE, PI Speaker And Fraud Consultant

Kelly Paxton specializes in finding and helping Construction Contractors, other businesses, and government agencies root out Pink-Collar Crime in their companies. The term Pink-Collar Crime was made popular Dr. Kathleen Daly in the 1980s to describe a type of embezzlement crime committed by female employees who may have limited opportunity.

It is thought women in this situation may have a history of committing low level crimes such as check kiting and bookkeeping fraud. Part of the reasoning is women tend to be in less powerful positions compared to men who had a history of engaging white-collar crime.

Posted by Brian Javeline on Fri, Jul 06, 2018


Today's Guest Article Is From Brian Javeline Of MyOnlineToolbox

While the title of this story mentions website leads, planning also can incorporate many other forms of leads.  However, we decided to focus on website leads since so many contractors simply do not have a great online presence designed to capture more quality business opportunities.

Go open your last version of your Marketing Plan.  You will then not believe how fast time flies by.  It will feel like just the other day where many of you were making all sorts of plans to change things, then time went by, then you got busy so the plans went in the to-do pile.   Unfortunately that implies that you are not doing anything specific to attract better customers.
