Check, Recheck and Chick Again

Every week proposal writers tell us frustrating stories of how they were rejected for an opportunity because their Health and Safety policy wasn’t signed or because they had ‘only just’ exceeded their word limit.  But the even more annoying thing is that many of these issues could have been avoided if someone else had checked the proposal before it landed on the buyer’s desk.

So here’s a helpful list for your colleague when asking them to proof read your bid. Get them to check:

  • Grammar
  • Spelling
  • Font sizes
  • Amount of words
  • Lengthily sentences
  • Presentation style
  • Consistency
  • The finished article i.e. binding, pagnation, etc

And if you are short on colleagues (or willing ones!) or can no longer distinguish your ‘check’ from your ‘chick’ Win That Bid provide a valuable critiquing service at the point of submission. Call us on the Bid Phone today.
