Top quality templates for proposal formatting

One of the most common questions we get is, "What should my proposal look like?" So when a company we’ve teamed with many times in the past started talking about producing some templates to help people format their proposals, we told them we have a few thousand friends who might be interested.

As a result of that conversation, we now have a bunch of proposal formats available. Only these aren’t just any proposal formats. These are designed by the 24 Hour Company. If you don’t know them, they practically invented proposal graphics. When companies going after billion-dollar proposals want the best possible graphics and visuals to deliver their message, this is the company they turn to. I know them personally and know the quality of their work.

The reason this matters isn’t just that their templates are better looking (which they are), but that they are also better constructed. They are in the right formats for MS-Word, they correctly use style sheets, and they have both single and double column layouts. They come with an instruction sheet that explains it all. And because of who developed them, you can have confidence that they were done right.

The templates can also be used with the MustWin Process that we recommend. One of the best ways to streamline your proposal planning is to do it in the format of the document you are trying to produce. Our Content Planning methodology starts with an empty shell of a document that has all of the formatting in place. You can use these templates to instantly complete this step and go straight to planning and writing your document.

This would be a good time for me to stop raving about them and get out of the way so you can go look at them. Before I do I want to tell you how we’ve organized them. They are mostly in packages. Pick a type of template (financial, medical, technology, business, etc.) and a package contains a variety of templates in different colors all ready to use. If you do a lot of proposals across different areas, or you just can’t decide which is best for you, we have a discounted package that enables you to just get them all. If a package is more than you need, we even have a basic single template that you can purchase that is less expensive than a full package. Take your choice, there should be something in there for you.
