Description

Small and medium size construction companies struggle with preparing detailed and accurate proposals.

This problem isn’t restricted only to small companies. It begins there, but as companies grow it only gets worse until they either get big enough to absorb the cost of guessing or give up trying and go out of business.

When I started doing construction more than forty years ago, I had no clue how to prepare proposals and like every other small construction company…I guessed. I used a common method called, trial and error. Doing proposals this way is a real crap shoot and leaves room for mistakes.

Preparing accurate proposals that communicate clearly doesn’t have to be a roll of the dice.

I’ve tried several different computer estimating programs, but their numbers were based on national averages which was inaccurate locally. These systems were hard or impossible to modify or customize to meet my needs.

It was at that point I began working on a proposal system that worked the way I wanted it to. It’s gone through a lot of modifying and updating to become what it is now. Over the years I’ve been asked by other contractors how I do my proposals and where I got the program I use.

After being hired by some of those contractors to do proposals for them it became apparent that there was a real need for a better proposal system.

This “Blueprint for Building a Better Proposal” system will give you the documents and instructions needed for preparing proposals that communicate clearly and accurately with the customer, while allowing you to be profitable.
