Ever had a client complain about your service? I hadn’t - at least not until last week. In fact, my clients are usually highly complimentary about my service, as can be seen from these testimonials.
Tenders. They’re usually complex, often confusing and always time consuming - but the reward for winning means a lucrative contract for your business. Sadly there is no magic formula that will guarantee success in the tendering process, and each tender is different. But if you want to increase your bid success rate, there are a number of steps you can take to help you win.
Writing a tender submission that ticks all of the boxes can be a pretty complex business, and it’s not just about answering questionnaires or filling in forms. It’s about constructing a rational and compliant submission that tells an awesome story about your business so you’ll have the best chances of winning that lucrative contract.
As a tender writer, I'm often asked for help in pricing the bid and while I can discuss pricing strategies with you, when it comes to the price you want to put forward, I can't tell you what a winning price looks like. You know your business, your operating costs and who your competitors are, so no one is in a better position than you to understand your market and your cost model.
