Proposal templates

A Proposal Template is a pre-designed document that serves as a cover page for creating proposals. It includes a structured layout with content blocks for essential information such as the proposal's title, introduction, scope of work, terms and conditions, and other relevant details. By using a Proposal Template, you can ensure a consistent and professional look for all your proposals, which can enhance your brand’s credibility and increase the chances of winning new business. In addition to individual Proposal Templates, we offer a Proposal Marketplace where you can access a variety of prebuilt templates. This marketplace is designed to kickstart your proposal creation process and speed up delivery.

Designing a Proposal template

You can design a proposal template in two ways: either create one from scratch or use a pre-built template from our Proposal Marketplace. 

Option 1: Create a Proposal Template from Scratch

Crafting a custom proposal template allows you to tailor the design to your specific needs and brand identity. This method offers complete flexibility in structuring content blocks, setting up sections, and incorporating unique design elements to ensure a professional and cohesive look.

Content blocks

Content blocks are used to structure the document, making it easier to navigate and ensuring that all essential information is included in a consistent and logical manner. By effectively using content blocks, you can create a well-organized, professional proposal that is both visually appealing and easy to understand. For a more detailed guide of the formatiing options read Template Builder guide.

Title, Text Area and Table

The blocks provide flexible formatting options. Once highlighted, users can apply various styles such as bold, italic, font color changes, bullet points, indentations, and more. These options are accessible through the toolbar at the top of the proposal, allowing for easy customization and enhancement of the document's appearance and readability.

Use Tagging 

Utilize tagging in your proposal by using the [ bracket in any of the Text content blocks to bring up the options available. Tagging helps in dynamically inserting data, ensuring the content is relevant and personalized for each proposal.
