In the competitive world of RFPs, what makes a proposal stand out?

Sure, they must comply 100% to the RFP requirements, follow the right format, use simple, clear language and include strong, supporting visuals.

But the best proposals do something more: they capture the customer’s hot buttons, mindset and voice with strategic solutions framed around the customer’s view of the world.

Winning proposals accomplish this right out of the gate in the cover letter and executive summary, with achievable and specific win themes that resonate and propel evaluators to keep reading.

Don’t fall into the trap of relying too much on one-size-fits-all templates.
