Win more commercial bids and tenders using a bid writer

A professional bid writer knows the techniques that will raise your win rate

Writing commercial bids and tenders successfully is daunting, overwhelming, time consuming and complicated, taking you away from your business. If you don’t have the right skills in house you will lose bids (including those where you are already working with your client).

As your bid writer, Alison Reeves is passionate about writing compelling bids, and helping you to grow your business. She will work with you to define strong win themes, and clear service offerings that will both comply with and exceed the tender specification. She can also put together a bid writing team if required for larger bids using trusted colleagues from the bid writing industry.

Benefits of using a bid writer

  • consistently win more bids.
  • only pay for actual work done.
  • iron out peaks and troughs around deadlines.
  • enhance your reputation and credibility.
  • increase your overall revenue.
  • produce more professional bids.
  • get a fresh perspective on your bid content.
  • save time by getting on with your business.

  2. write specific tender responses, including structure, content, formatting and graphics.

With customers who come back again and again, Alison has got to know their businesses so well that they can now just send the tender over and she can write the bid right up to the review stage with little input from the client.  Clients can get on with running their business whilst their bids are being prepared.
