Calling all freelancers…all web developers, graphic designers, content creators…all Sumo-lings trying to make a living from their creative chops.
This fat Sumo’s got big news for you—news that’ll help beef-up your flimsy bottom line and increase your earning potential. News that’ll help you attract better, more qualified clients who are willing to pay you the big bucks (or, at the very least, what you actually DESERVE).
You ready? Here goes:
YOU SUCK AT WRITING PROPOSALS.
YOUR BAD PROPOSALS ARE THE REASON YOU’RE NOT MAKING MORE MONEY.
YOU NEED HELP.
There—nice and quick, like a band-aid. After all, the first step to getting better is admitting that you have a problem. And you’ve got an expensive problem, or at least one that’s keeping you from landing the kinds of big-ticket clients you need to grow your business.
The thing is, it’s not the quality of your work that’s keeping you from landing big-ticket projects, and I think you know it. When you can’t close the deal with a big client—can’t get them to put their signature on your proposal—I know what you’re saying to yourself.
That guy they hired isn’t any better than me. I’m just as good of a designer as anyone they’ll find. If they’d just give me a chance to show ‘em what I can do, they’d get past the sticker shock and gladly pay me what I’m asking. I mean, I gotta eat. What gives?
It’s not what you can or can’t do that’s keeping you from landing the jobs you want. It’s how you’re presenting yourself in your proposal. Your would-be clients just aren’t impressed. They don’t feel like they need you.
But you know by now that I’m not the kind of Sumo to tell you what you’re doing wrong and just say “figure it out, small-fry.”
So I’m here to tell you that there’s a fix. A way for you to kick your freelance business into high gear by writing project-winning proposals. A way that you can:
● Charge what you want and deserve for a project, and not have the client laugh in your face.
● Present yourself as an expert—as THE guy or gal for the job.
● Make your portfolio of projects (if it’s still growing) matter less by focusing on what you will do.
● Use high-profile clients to boost your brand prestige.
● Build an expert team to tackle ANY project.
● Wrap all this and more into a thorough proposal that your clients will be BEGGING to sign—and pay for.
How? With the help of my pal, Ismail Maiyegun, a successful web dev consultant and creator of…
Big Money Proposals
The ultimate guide to writing 5-figure proposals
Ismail used to be like you. He was really good at what he did, but he couldn’t make any real money with his freelancing business. All his jobs were small potatoes. But he learned. He kept going. He got better. And after years of dealing with clients and taking on projects, he’s figured out the best-kept secrets for closing on big-ticket proposals and getting the jobs that pay big bucks.
And he’s distilled that knowledge into an easy, actionable, effective course and wants to teach you his techniques.
The Big Money Proposals System is a simple blueprint for closing on big freelance jobs—the same one that Ismail uses in his business to regularly land $5,000 - $25,000 projects.
It’s broken up into 6 easy-to-follow digital modules:
Module I – Introduction
● The mindset required to close on big money proposals
Module II – Branding
● How to increase your brand appeal with the “piggyback” concept
● The “F word” to avoid at all costs when dealing with potential clients
● How to leverage your existing brand and social media
● How to be seen as an expert in just a few days
● Portfolio tactics and how to pitch for big projects, even if your portfolio is lacking
Module III – Finding Clients
● How to find clients willing to pick up your 5-figure price tag
● Local resources to help you find big-money clients
Module IV – The Pitching Process
● Ismail’s exact process and routine in crafting a pitch
● How to write proposals for projects you have no idea how to do
● The anatomy of a perfect proposal
Module V – Pricing
● Coming up with a price that your clients won’t laugh at
● How to avoid a mistake that once cost Ismail $50,000 (you’ll wanna see this)
● Upselling clients with value-adds
● Negotiating with cash and equity, so you can profit when your client hits the big time
Module VI – Protect Your Neck
● How to protect yourself and your clients—the higher the project cost, the more risk that’s involved
● How to surround yourself with a team of experts—surrounding yourself with people to help you deliver on almost any project
As a bonus, on top of all these practical video modules, you’ll get a bundle of actual, real-life proposals that Ismail’s written in the past to use as samples for your projects. You’ll be able to reference them while watching the video modules, and save a bunch of time by using them as a framework in your own writing. They cover all kinds of projects, like:
● E-commerce sites
● Web app development
● Mobile app development
● Web and mobile app joint projects
● SEO projects
● WordPress sites
● Logo design
Spend less time writing these things, and have a much higher chance of landing a whale of a project. Win and win.
So something like this that can help you put your best foot forward and start making a lot more money has gotta cost a lot, right? Come on, Sumo-ling, you know me better than that.
No—it’s cheap. As in, a steal. Worth every penny. ‘Cause for a short time (and I do mean it—Ismail’s gonna go out of business if he keeps giving away all his secrets), you can get the Big Money Proposals System for the looow price of…
It’s time you started earning what you deserve. Do yourself a favor a pick this one up, and let your clients see you for the pro that you are.
