You’ve made it this far.
You’ve decided to give your freelance business a try, and started offering your services to prospective clients.
And it worked! You’ve got potential customers who are interested in hiring your services.
It’s now time to create a proposal specifying a few things: What are you set to achieve, how are you going to achieve it and, most importantly, how much are you going to charge for it.
