Here’s how to use Indy’s Proposal Template to get started:
A proposal template is a document you prepare in advance to make writing specific proposals easier. You can include reusable chunks of content in your proposal, such as client testimonials, a description of your business, and your regular terms and conditions.
Writing great proposals is one of the best things freelancers can do to fill up their pipeline with more work to do. Attractive proposals with a clear structure help convince potential clients to hire you.
Investing time in a template means your future proposals will look better than ever with far less work. When you sit down to write a new proposal, all the beautiful design elements, document structure, and common blocks of information will be ready for you. Turning your template into a full proposal will be very quick.
Creating a template will help you improve the professionalism of your documentation because every new proposal will have a foundation of great design, clear structure, and perfectly selected reusable content.

Thank you for contacting me. I put this proposal together based on our conversations.
Here are a few quick observations:
As you continue through this proposal, you will see how my website design services can help you meet your goals and your deadlines.
Launching new products is getting more complicated all the time. Smart brands launch their products across multiple channels simultaneously, but this kind of coordinated launch requires a mix of creativity, copywriting, and project management to bring all the moving parts together at the critical moment.
Thankfully, I specialize in multi-channel product launches. I have helped dozens of companies launch new products in multiple marketplaces, countries, and on every major social media platform. During three decades of marketing and copywriting, I have developed the skills to write effective and engaging copy as well as the ability to manage teams through the process of launching multiple ads in larger campaigns.
Here are some testimonials from previous clients:
My clients value my professionalism, commitment to deadlines, and the results I give them.
Based on your information, Sylvia Hampton wants to launch a new product line and so needs to develop new copy for every aspect of the launch campaigns. This includes:
Bringing all these efforts together will require managing other freelancers across multiple time zones and countries. William Vidrine will coordinate all these brilliant individuals to deliver the project on time.
Here is the plan for how my Copywriting services will meet your goals. Let me break down the specific targets and how they will be met.
There are thirteen weeks between now and the initial launch for testing in September. This is a good time frame for developing a multi-channel launch, but work should begin as soon as possible.
Any adjustments to the plans can be made by sending me a message via the Slack channel or by email at email@example.com.
I am committed to meeting your deadlines and delivering quality business work on schedule. Here are the milestones for this project:
My services have a reputation for organization, follow through, and prompt delivery. I take pride in this reputation and look forward to delivering exceptional results for Sylvia Hampton.
Structuring your payments is important for your cash flow and the client’s clarity. List specific payments and dates in your proposal to avoid any confusion. You should also include details about any extra work or extra charges for your Copywriting services.
Projects such as this one run for a number of months before concluding. To facilitate these projects, I offer a schedule of payments. Here are the payment milestones:
All the copies should be reviewed multiple times during the process. Once the project enters the retainer phase (in November), the retainer provides for five hours of work per month. Any work required beyond this will be billed at an hourly rate of $95 per hour.
Electronic invoices will be sent once the contract has been signed and milestones passed. Each invoice is payable within 10 business days of receipt. Late payments may result in suspension of work and/or late fees as specified in the contract.
Once you agree to this proposal, I will prepare a simple contract for this copywriting project. The contract will reference the terms of this proposal, including any amendments you suggest. If you agree to these terms, please sign below, and return this proposal to me.
Thank you very much. I look forward to working with Sylvia Hampton.
