Example Proposal

Proposal Title Goes Here

Ayden Asset Type Goes Here


A marketing plan focuses the company’s attention on the customer and recognizes that satisfying the customer is the foundation of every business. Indeed, the customer is the central player in the cast of every business venture. According to marketing expert Ted Levitt, the primary purpose of a business is not to earn a profit; instead, it is “to create and keep a customer. The rest, given reasonable good sense, will take care of itself.“ Every area of the business must practice putting the customer first in planning and actions. A guerrilla marketing plan should accomplish four objectives:

  1. It should pinpoint the target markets the small company will serve.
  2. It should determine customer needs, wants, and characteristics through market research.
  3. It should analyze a company’s competitive advantages and build an effective, cost-efficient
    marketing strategy around them.
  4. It should help create a marketing mix that meets customer needs and wants.
This section should identify the overall purpose of this proposal, to serve as both an overview and a preview of what will be presented.

Why Ayden?

In order to write a successful proposal, it is important to properly answer the question of how your company will solve the client’s problems. Make sure to spend ample time understanding what situation your client is in, clearly explain your best understanding of the problem, and get into the finer details of how you’re going to solve the problem, explaining in detail while making sure to keep projections accurate and realistic. This is also a great section to highlight any knowledge that can set you apart from the competition.

Market research for a small business can be informal; it does not have to be time consuming, complex, or expensive to be valuable. Many entrepreneurs are discovering the speed, the convenience, and the low cost of conducting market research over the Web. Online surveys, customer opinion polls, and other research projects are easy to conduct, cost virtually nothing, produce quick responses, and help companies connect with their customers. Insight Express, an online market research firm, estimates that an online survey costs just 20 percent of what it costs to conduct a mail survey and only 10 percent of what it costs for a telephone survey. With Web-based surveys, businesses can get real-time feedback from customers, often using surveys they have designed themselves.


A major part of the entrepreneur’s business plan is the marketing plan, which focuses on a company’s target customers and how best to satisfy their needs and wants. A solid marketing plan should pinpoint the specific target markets the company will serve, determine customer needs and wants through market research, analyze the firm’s competitive advantages and build a marketing strategy around them, and create a marketing mix that meets customer needs and wants.

When plotting a marketing strategy, owners must strive to achieve a competitive advantage, some way to make their companies different from and better than the competition. Successful small businesses rely on 16 guerrilla marketing principles to develop a competitive edge: niche-picking, generating publicity, entertailing, connecting with their customers, building a consistent branding strategy, embracing social networking, starting a blog, creating online videos, emphasizing their uniqueness, focusing on customers’ needs, retaining existing customers, emphasizing quality, paying attention to convenience, concentrating on innovation, dedicating themselves to service, and emphasizing speed.

Declare how long it will take to finalize the project. Be as clear as possible and break the project into as many milestones as it makes sense. The big question to answer here concisely is how long it will take to complete the project.
