ELEVATING YOUR LIFE

WELCOME TO THE FIRST DAY OF YOUR FUTURE

In the introduction you set and reconfirm the reasons you and the prospect are having a conversation about potentially working together. Why not thank them for the opportunity of working together.

It’s highly likely you will have already met or spoken on the phone and during that meeting you would have heard the problems they are facing and looking for you to solve. List these items but don’t go into too much detail as there’s time and space for that later.

WHAT ARE YOUR CHALLENGES ?

Do you have any snappy one-liners that sum up why you’re a good choice for them? Add one or two of these on this page.

Reconfirm your focus and attitude to dealing with clients similar to your prospect

WHY CHOOSE US

Do you have any promises you will adhere to you want them to realise early on when reading your proposal?

Remember, this is a proposal and, therefore, should demonstrate all the best parts of you, your team, your product and business. Don’t leave anything of value out. If you do you’re doing yourself a disservice.


OUR STRATEGY

HOW WE’LL HELP YOU TO IMPROVE YOUR LIFE

This is your chance to go into the details about precisely HOW you’ll help your prospective client change. This is where you show your brilliance, your unique methods and your products in action.  

Remember, people buy things for one reason and one reason only…to solve a problem. You must understand what problem you’re solving to effectively write a proposal that’s is accepted.

Simply match the problems your prospect needs solving to your products. One way you may wish to consider doing this is as follows:


CHALLENGE NUMBER 1

Describe you’re your product will bring a swift end to the prospect’s pain. Talk about the end results they’ll get. What is the outcome for them if they use you?

CHALLENGE NUMBER 2

Describe you’re your product will bring a swift end to the prospect’s pain. Talk about the end results they’ll get. What is the outcome for them if they use you?

CHALLENGE NUMBER 3

Describe you’re your product will bring a swift end to the prospect’s pain. Talk about the end results they’ll get. What is the outcome for them if they use you?

..and so on.

Only you know how much detail you need to go into. All we’ll advise is that in our experience less is often more. People do not really care too much about HOW you do it, so long as you can do it and make changes for them.

Do not list a load of features. People do not buy features. 


DEVELOPING YOUR
PLAN OF ACTION

FINDING DIRECTION

Everyone has a different way of working and you’re no different. You have probably developed your own way of helping a client get from A-B. How you break that down into chunks a prospect can understand is up to you.

One thing is for sure though, most people will have questions about what happens once they say YES to working with you. So answer it for them in your proposal so they don’t have to ask you.

An example could be:

WEEK 1

Initial meeting and fact finding.

WEEK 2

Analyse where time can be saved in the area outlined herein and source suitable outsourced help.

WEEK 3

Implement initial findings and fine tune them with you into a workable system.

WEEK 4

Support your goals and tweak where required to a final review.

Please meet

WE BACK UP WHAT WE SAY...CHECK THIS CASE STUDY

A case study is a great way to show a prospect that somebody just like them, took a leap of faith and became a client. You need to show them what the initial problems were or what outcomes were required, what you did about it and how the client is now far better off in their life as a result of working with you.

So case studies might be broken up into 3 sections. Here's an example:

THE PROBLEM AND THE GOAL

Describe an example case or client where you previously helped someone. Use the company name and URL where possible [names even] to make it more believable. It is after all, a real life success story.

Talk about the initial conversations you had with this party and the problems they faced. What were the negative effects on their life/business and how did it hold them back? Where were they looking to get to and what was their destination?

THE SOLUTION

What products and tools did you suggest and introduce into the equation to effect significant and lasting change? Not too much detail in the HOW remember, but talk about the programme, the method or the system employed at the time and how the client enjoyed it

THE OUTCOME

What happened for this client? What were the positive changes they felt, experienced and enjoyed? This is vital as it’ll paint a picture of the prospect having the same thing happen to them. They’ll see themselves enjoying the same things and feeling the sale relief at having their problems also solved.


A few words from THEM 

Include a quote or testimonial from the client that speaks to the same goals your new potential client is looking to achieve.

This helps confirm that you know what you're doing, you've done it before and can achieve the results they're after.

YOUR INVESTMENT

WE'RE A LITTLE DIFFERENT
FROM THE REST

Take a moment to remind them of your USP here; perhaps motioning towards your guarantee to ensure they know there's no risk in going with you.

So...HERE'S THE DEAL

£995 per month for 12 months.

That’s it.

Don’t think of this as “a grand a month”. This is a £12,000 decision and you need to be comfortable with that. In truth, it’ll be more than that because with us around you’ll be spending more money on traffic to your website, printing and various other things.

If you need to take a loan or remortgage your house to pay for this then the deal is off.

OUR GUARANTEE

WE'RE ONLY AS GOOD
AS OUR LAST MONTH


If for any reason you're not happy with the results we've generated, or believe that our efforts have not worked at any time, you can pause payment and not pay again until you're happy that we're back on track.

HERE’S HOW IT WORKS


As long as you’ve been supplying us with everything we need and living up to your end of the bargain and you're simply not happy with the results generated at any time, you can pause payment.

We will continue to work on the last month's ideas and actions until you're happy and then everything will resume as normal.
