I want to know the best methods you follow to get a bid approved by the client. What things you put in the bid description?
Before writing a bid, make sure that you
- Read the complete proposal.
- Understood the project requirements.
- Sure that you are capable of completing it.
- Checked the client’s history to avoid getting cheated.
- Can complete the project within the budget.
How to write a perfect bid on Freelancer
Now, let’s get into writing a perfect bid for your client to accept your bid. Even if you have a bit less qualification than the competing freelancers, if your bid looks promising and if it is catchy, the chance of getting the job is very high. So, make sure that you write the perfect bid for the employer taking your time to prepare it.
Make it short
No one likes to read an entire essay of the bid describing everything in it. All they need is a short and crisp bid that explains the proposal and shows the employer that you are capable of doing the job. So, always make your bids short and crisp.
Make it professional
Your bid should sound professional. Don’t include anything like “please give me the project” or anything like that. Just because you asked, no one is going to assign you the project. Instead, you can still ask for the project in a professional way by noting something like “if you assign me the project, I will provide you with the best content” All they look into are factors such as your skills and previous experience.
Here is a bid as an example in case you wonder, what a perfect Freelancer bid is.
