    Conquer that Tender


    The contract you’ve been bursting to win has come up for tender. You log on to the website and download the documents. Brimming with enthusiasm and optimism, you picture how great it’s going to be when you win the job.

    Then you see the due date. It’s in three weeks. Okay, no big deal.

    Next, you read the documents. They don’t make a lot of sense. The language is a bit odd – what on earth is “methodology”, anyway? And the amount of supporting information required is eye-watering.

    In a matter of moments, you’ve gone from imagining the feeling of victory to reconsidering your life choices. All those years of learning and honing your craft seem like a waste when you can’t express your authority and expertise.

    You know your business can do the work and do it well. But where do you start? And how do you put into words the things that make your work unique?

    Outsource the time-consuming work of planning and writing the proposal.

    Understanding what information is essential and where to find it boosts confidence.

    Decoding what each question means and how to best address it increases efficiency.

    The satisfaction of submitting a proposal with ease and confidence.

    Testimonials


    I have had the pleasure of working with Toni on my Ignite Ideas grant application. Toni certainly came up with the goods, moulding my content into copy that made sense, flowed so much better and ultimately lead to a successful application. I would have no hesitation in recommending Toni for your copywriting needs.

    Toni is a genius with the written word. She has this remarkable ability to make difficult things seem simple and me sound a whole lot smarter than I feel sometimes. If you're looking for the best in the bid writing business, then you're in the right place.

    I've been working with Toni for at least 3yrs now. Before meeting Toni I would try to write grant applications myself, it was so time consuming and I never knew if I was doing it right. Toni is so knowledgable, she knows what each application requires and the specific nuances that will get your application noticed. She is totally upfront and honest and will tell you if a grant is not right for your business so you don't waste time and money applying when your chances are not great. I wouldn't trust anyone else to write grant applications for me including myself. Highly Recommend.

    I was extremely impressed with the wide-ranging business knowledge and positive attitude that Toni brought to our proposal. Toni offered a fresh pair of eyes, and was able to see things from a customer ‘s point of view. The thing I like most, was how helpful Toni was in offering wording changes and helping us reformat sentences to better affect. As a bonus, the cost of the doing tender has given us content that we can reuse for our website. Highly recommended, Thanks Toni, we will use A better bid again.

    Toni made a task that I wouldn't normally do extremely easy, efficient and a little fun. Toni explained the process upfront and by the time my application was complete I had another tool to better explain our business. no hesitation in using A Better Bid in the future.

    I work with farmers and wanted to help them obtain funding. I came across Toni‘s website and gave her a call. In the following weeks I learned so much about the grant application process and how to increase the chance of being accepted and approved. Toni also shared with me other sources of funding and she didn’t have to do lengthy searches, it was all there at her fingertips. So much knowledge, so much skill, I’m so glad she’s helping me out with my rural clients.

    Are You Ready?


    Conquer that Tender! is designed for businesses with all the components needed to write a compelling proposal but need help writing it.

    You have all the resources to fulfil the contract – a crack team, excellent systems and processes, and the documents to back it all up. If only you didn’t hate writing, or there were more than 24 hours in a day! Perhaps one of your key players is away, and you just can’t stretch the remaining resources enough to write the response and do a good job.

    Don’t worry. I’ve got you.

    This is not for you if you think paying a professional to write a fantastic proposal will make up for a gap in systems and processes. For instance, if the eligibility requirements include documented Environmental Policies and you don’t have them, I can’t write them for you. Unfortunately, this is not a problem that you can solve by throwing money at it.

    As usual, A Better Bid remains a spam-free zone. Your details won’t be entered onto a mailing list if you download the resources.

    If you want to understand the tendering process to be better prepared for the next opportunity, download the Get Ready to Conquer that Tender! resource.

    FAQS


    Can I use the answers for previous proposals in this one?

    Some information doesn’t need to be personalised, such as insurances. For other questions, while you might repurpose previous material, I don’t recommend a straight copy and paste.
