Simple Web Design Proposal Template FAQ

What is a Simple Web Design proposal template?

A proposal template is a tool you can use to make writing proposals easier. All the relevant details for your project are already included on its pages, so customizing this document takes only minutes.

For freelancers and independent contractors, a great proposal can be one of your most powerful job search tools. Proposals help you secure new work while also giving clients an idea about the talent they'll get when working with someone like yourself! Freelance professionals should take time to write up stellar proposals because it will open doors that might not otherwise have been opened.

You can invest time in creating a beautiful template for your proposals. This will include business information, logo and any other brand elements you want to add. There are sections of reusable content that cover topics such as the portfolio, common terms and conditions etc., and feedback from previous customers.

A template is a great way to establish yourself as an expert and maintain consistency across your brand. Every new proposal will have professional design quality, making good impressions on clients you want to win.

How to write a Simple Web Design proposal template?

Writing a Simple Web Design proposal template is simple. We'll show you a process for making your own with the help of this guide.

First, you need a few things:

  • You’ll be using a document editor. You could use a separate app such as Word, Google Docs, Adobe InDesign, or Pages.
  • When you use our Proposals tool, it’s really easy to connect your proposal to client records, a job contract, time tracking and invoices later.
  • You should also have access to any external files or media you want to include. For example, you will want your logo and pictures of landing pages you have already finished.

Now that you have those things, you can begin writing your Simple Web Design proposal template.

A great way to start making a template is to look at previous successful proposals. Copy information from them that can be reused in all your new proposals. This will save time and increase your chances of success.

If you don't have a complete template, then writing your own proposal from scratch using Indy's template is easy. Simply create a new one and start editing!

Here are the basic steps:

  1. In your new proposal template, add your company information and branding.
  2. Review the sections in the template and add or remove sections as you need them.
  3. Add information to each section. Focus on what you can reuse for every client.
  4. Once you have added all the reusable information, save your work.

That’s it! Your new proposal template is finished.

The best way to test the template is by using it to create a full proposal. While writing one, you can make note of what's missing from your template and go back later for updates.

What should be in a Simple Web Design proposal template?

Building confidence is vital for getting clients in the competitive Simple Web Design design industry. As a professional, your proposal needs to have an attractive design and clear structure.

Here are the elements we think you should include in every Simple Web Design proposal:

  • Beautiful Cover Page. Your cover page is the first thing potential clients will see when they open your proposal. It should do everything possible to make a great impression and leave them wanting more!
  • Service Description. This section is where you describe what your client should expect from working with you. You can include any specific approaches that are based on previous conversations or research.
  • Design Process and Milestones. In this section, help your client understand what will happen throughout the process by explaining each step of development. Be sure to explain when you'll be working on something and for how long so that they know exactly where their project is in its lifecycle at all times during the journey.
  • Social Proof. You are beginning to reel in your client, now it’s time to start landing them. Add a portfolio section here and utilize case studies, customer testimonials, and feedback as evidence of the quality work you can deliver.
  • Costs and Pricing. Great proposals are built on selling value, not talking about costs. Don’t move your cost and pricing section to an earlier point in your proposal. Instead, leave it to the end so the client is fully aware of the value you bring to the table.

From here, you can wrap up the proposal template with next steps the customer can take. These can include:

  • A digital signing service for making the approval process happen much faster.
  • A standard contract your client can review. Your contract can reference your proposal to make the client-specific sections relevant.
  • You can also include a payment method here to help your client get started quickly.

Your proposal will send a message of professionalism and dedication to the work you do. From its stunning cover page, all the way down to payment options at the back it is clear that your clients can rely on you for their needs as well as have access to services beyond those listed in your proposal should they need them later.

How can a free Simple Web Design Proposal Template help you win more clients?

The secret to winning more clients as a freelancer is to build your client’s confidence in your abilities. Proposal templates helps you do this in a few ways:

  • A template saves you time and makes your work look amazing. If you are on the ball, you can chat with a potential client about their work, hang up the phone, and finish a new proposal for them in ten or twenty minutes. Your new proposal won’t look rushed or half-done because it has so much useful information from previous templates that made this one just as great! Clients will be impressed by both your speed and efficiency.
  • A well-designed proposal template is going to turn into a proposal that impresses clients. You will look better because you are more efficient, but also your work looks attractive. Taking the time to customize a template so it looks good sets you apart from others who send simple emails or ugly proposals.
  • Finally, a proposal template will help you win more clients by freeing up your time to work on projects that are even bigger deals. If turning your template into a live proposal takes just fifteen minutes, you can use the time saved for other things like going back and forth with leads or finding new ones altogether.

Those are three ways your proposal template can help you land more jobs. Get started with one as soon as possible to begin reaping the benefits.
