A business proposal is a document used in sales management to offer specific goods or services to leads at a defined cost. They are typically used by B2B companies to win new business and can be either solicited or unsolicited. Effective business proposals have an executive summary, key project details, and require a client signature. The best business proposals clarify project details, timeline, terms, and cost, and can be treated as an agreement between both companies if they include a signature field for the prospect.

Business proposals may be delivered in many ways, from a classic text or PDF document to a crafted, hopefully well-designed presentation. We often recommend sending them in the form of a slide deck using this Business Proposal Template as a guide , which allows you to craft a much better story around why your business or product is the best option in the market. The most prominent mistake people make with business proposals is sticking to a single template, and not changing it or adjusting it to match the needs and specifics of the customer. In the end, an outstanding proposal is one that shows empathy, that proves that your company is absolutely the best alternative.
