When clients seek your 3d modeling, animation, and/or rendering services, it is very important to submit a winning bid/proposal that is customized for them. Below find some tips that can help you submit winning proposals to your clients, which in turn will help you get repeat business.
CUSTOMIZE YOUR PROPOSAL – Your final bid or proposal should be customized for each client individually. Generic bids that don’t take into account your client and what they are trying to achieve will often not win you the 3d job.
Submitting the right price and delivery time is essential. However, personalization and attention to your client needs will make you stand out and win the job for you.
For example, to personalize a proposal for 3d modeling of human anatomy, you can highlight your credentials and experience modeling and/or customizing 3d models of human organs in the software or file formats the client requires. Also, you can state what attracts you to this job. The most important thing is to let your clients know that you are interested in helping them achieve their objective and show that you are interested in putting their needs first.
FIND THE RIGHT FEE FOR YOUR SERVICES – Provide a balanced price that will be low enough to attract your client, but high enough to satisfy your needs. Start off by putting a price on your time that is realistic and that is within the range that your client is willing to pay.
Remember, not every client will be looking for the lowest bid. However, don’t bid your projects too high as you can run the risk of pricing yourself out of the market.
Often, when bidding for 3d projects, you have to provide customers discounts that will compel them to use your services. One way to be able to provide your clients discounts is to use ready-made or stock 3d model collections, which cut down your time and production costs.
Before you go ahead and start calculating how much to charge, first you need to have a realistic idea of how long the job will take you.
GIVE A REALISTIC DELIVERY TIME – It is very important to know how long it will take you to complete the 3d project, without putting yourself under unnecessary pressure. Monitor your working schedule and save time by using ready-made or customized 3d models from a high quality 3d model marketplace like Flat Pyramid, whenever possible.
To be able to estimate time sucessfully, start by tracking the average time it takes you to complete a 3d model, including any additional rendering or changes. This will better help you estimate how long bigger jobs will take.
ASK FOR FEEDBACK – Asking for feedback regarding your proposal is essential when you don’t get the job. This is the only way you will truly improve and be prepared when the next request for proposal comes around.
