How to Understand Proposals?
Proposals are a very unique type of business document. In this chapter, we will explore the proposal writing process, as well as the most common types of proposals. Note that we only provide an overview of the four major types; there are many variations on these types, as well as more specialized categories.
What is a Proposal?
A proposal is primarily a sales pitch for a product or service that your company offers. It outlines a problem or opportunity that the client has and presents a product or service as a solution.
Proposals can be directed externally (to another organization) or internally (for example, to senior management, in order to gain support for a project or idea). In this book, we will focus on external proposals, but the principles can also be applied to internal proposals.
Proposals can also be solicited or unsolicited. Solicited proposals are written in response to a Request for Proposal (RFP) or Invitation for Proposal (IFP). Unsolicited proposals are those that the organization sends on its own in an attempt to gain new business.
