Whilst familiarising yourself with the tender documents it is time to decide if you are going to submit a bid. If the only reason not to bid is a lack of time or resource, you should consider hiring the services of a professional bid writer.
If answering the same question, multiple times in a slightly different way is not your idea of fun, you are not alone. You majority of people dislike writing bids so they call on the services of a freelance bid writer.
Writing a bid often forces you to perform due diligence on your organisations strengths and weaknesses. Meticulous attention to the tender details and an honest review of your bid strategy are the benefits of outsourcing your bid to a freelance bid writer.
The cost of freelance bid writing is tiny in comparison to the size of the prize on offer. Bid writing is an investment in your business’ growth and development and can make the difference between business success and business failure.
When clients contact me, they are frequently overwhelmed by the enormity of the prospect of participating in a bid process. They know winning the bid will change their fortunes forever. They want to invest in their business by hiring a professional freelance bid writer to take away the stress associated with the bid writing process and increase their chances of winning.
There are no guarantees in the bid writing process, the evaluation of bids is very subjective but bid processes provide opportunities to learn, the more feedback you receive, the more your confidence grows and the more you learn about your business.
