Proposal Writing

The definition of a proposal is a document that offers a solution to a problem or a course of action in response to a need.

Types of proposals include internal proposals, external proposals, grant proposals, and sales proposals.

Writing a winning proposal, whether it is intended to attract sales or secure funding for a project, requires the ability to persuade. Thus, proposal writing skills are valuable when conducting business, soliciting funds for non-profit agencies and gaining support for projects in government organizations.
