With most clients, a line itemized budget like the ones created in Showbiz Budgeting have too much information. In this video, Walter presents some strategies for determining how much detail your budget and proposal should include. He also presents some actual examples of proposals he has submitted.
- [Instructor] Now with most clients, you actually don't…want to present a fully line-item budget like the ones…we created in Showbiz Budgeting.…It's simply too much information, it's like information…overload for a lot of people.…So here's some considerations on how much information…to present, and what should be included in your proposal.…Now most importantly, what and is not included…in your proposal must be made clear.…Assumptions, either on your part or the client's part,…is what leads to issues and frustrations later.…
If something is not a part of your proposal,…or if you are expecting a client to provide something…for the project, make sure that is clear…in the proposal.…Never assume.…Now, small business owners and local commercial projects,…they generally just want to see the bottom line.…So if you look in here, chapter five, exercise files,…small business, local commercial proposal,…this is a very simple proposal that I did.…And you can see, just a bottom line is the only thing…worth showing here.…
