Directions: Very little money is spent in this world without a proposal of some sort first laying out a project and then justifying why it is worth the cost. Whether you are obtaining funding for your work, suggesting changes where you work, selling a project, or bidding for a project, you will need a proposal. Proposals attempt to persuade the audience to take direct action. They are an important part of planning, research, and sales.
Proposals take great care to write. You need to know your audience and be informed about the subject matter to write a successful proposal. Furthermore, many proposals have an oral presentation component as well, what might well be called “The Pitch.” The recipient of the proposal would be given a formal, paper copy, but then an individual or a team would give a presentation in hopes of winning approval.
