What makes a winning freelance proposal?
As a freelancer, one of the most difficult parts of your process is persuading new clients you’re the right person for the job. There are now more than 58 million freelancers in the U.S. alone, and as more people are choosing the flexibility of the freelance lifestyle, competition is only increasing.

A good freelance proposal will present you as a confident, experienced professional who’s ready to get the job done. Getting your proposal to your prospect before your competition does can help emphasize your level of professionalism. Use a proposal template to save you time so you can get it to your client faster.
First impressions count, so it’s important that your proposal is well-structured and laid out. Not only does it make for easier reading for the prospect, it demonstrates the kind of work you’ll do for them should you close the deal. A simple but stylish proposal template is what you need.
