Whether you are a beginner entrepreneur who is "himself a director, accountant and manager" or a hired worker, whether you are running a large firm or performing services alone - you can not do without such a document as a commercial offer.
Examples of successful decisions in its drafting and common mistakes, we will try to briefly outline.
Without a piece of paper, you ...
It's no secret that many of us do not like, even openly hate "clerical fuss" with documents. It seems to us that this is a waste of time, because you can find out everything by phone or in person. But how many times in response to a call to some company you would like to sell goods or services, you heard: "Please send a commercial offer"?
Graphics and stylistics
These are the necessary conditions that must be met, so that your offer is paid attention and not thrown into the trash. What can you say about the design? Qualitatively prepared commercial proposal (examples of documents of reputable companies - to confirm this) should look restrained and elegant. What does it mean? Do not overdo with the background, with unnecessary graphics. No matter how beautiful you may seem to pictures or photos, the offer has enough logo and one or two product images (if necessary). The text should look neat. Allocations are permissible, lists too, but undesirable diversity. Stop on one font and a maximum of two or three colors. What can you say about the style of presentation and content? Not every employee can be charged with drafting a commercial proposal. Examples of how an unsuccessfully written document (with errors, carelessly) damaged the reputation of the firm are not uncommon. Think about it: would you like to cooperate with a company in which illiterate managers work?
