Tips for creating the perfect pitch

Posted by Laura Dunn on Oct 8, 2014


Constructing the perfect pitch or proposal takes time and practice. Whatever the stage of your business, it’s always good to look at how to write a winning proposal. 

Here are some tips that have helped me:

  • Do your research - Thoroughly research the company, project, aims, objectives, budget and personalities. The more information you have the better!

  • Look at others for inspiration – When setting up a template to use for my business proposals, I looked to others for inspiration. A striking layout is important to make your pitch stand out, and it’s also good to consider the use of headings, subheadings and other techniques to present your information.

  • Use images - Be sure to use your company logo on every document you issue, and consider using graphs or infographics in your proposal to ‘break up’ any large amounts of texts.

  • Leave a day to read and reflect - I try to complete a proposal ahead of deadline, leaving a day to read through and reflect on any amendments.
