Are you a freelancer or a small web development/design firm? Well then you must have experienced the frustration and pain of spending hours creating proposals for potential clients and still not make the cut many times, wasting hours of work and research. Or your proposals might just lack that touch of professionalism in them.
Bidsketch is here to scratch that itch. It is an application that lets you create, track, customize, and design beautiful proposals. The developers claim that with this app you can create proposals in half the time.
A quote is the first vital step in a sales process. A competent quote doesn’t just have the right price, but also is a business document with all the details relevant to your bid. Professional formatting, highlighting important sections prominently and visual appeal are important factors that grab the attention of the clients.
When we launched Inc42, we needed a professional way to get proposals in front of potential clients, whom we generally don’t expect to meet in person until after a decision is reached. Our website is the first impression, but we knew the proposal experience would leave the most memorable taste for the average client. If the proposal is difficult to trudge through, comes via snail mail, and requires a signature and return postage, you’re hardly showing your business to be intuitive and forward thinking. Printed docs just won’t do.
We did find 2 other reputable providers in the online proposal app category: Quoteroller & QuoteRobot. But decided to go ahead with Bidsketch thanks to their ease of use and they suited our requirement more.
