How to Write a Graphic Design Proposal

How to Write a Graphic Design Proposal

Do you write proposals for prospective clients? They can be a powerful sales tool, especially when done right. Many designers are either intimidated at the thought of writing one, or they just don’t see the value in it. I assure you, there is a lot of value in a well crafted proposal, and the great news is, it doesn’t have to be difficult. In this episode, we talk about how to write a graphic design proposal. Specifically, what a proposal is, the benefits of submitting one to prospective clients, and what to include. We also go over a powerful online tool for streamlining your proposals that you won’t want to miss.

We also address the ethical issues of using free vector files available online in our listener question segment, and offer up some fresh new tips in “Do Yourself a Favor.”

Great ep! It’s always great to hear your stories of what DIDN’T work. Hearing that you too get the shaft from clients is great to know that I’m not the only one, really appreciate your “tips from the trenches”. Thanks!
