Why performing arts businesses use a proposal application instead of Microsoft Word
Many performing arts still use Microsoft Word or some other word processor to create their proposals. A previously created template is modified manually and then sent as a PDF. Sounds easy, but in practice this takes a lot of time, the chance of errors is high and you no longer have insight into your quotation after sending.
With the use of a proposal application it has become a lot easier and better for entrepreneurs. You still use templates as a basis, but now you have a full content library in which you can search and reuse texts. The chance of errors is minimal due to smart automation. And after sending you can still adjust your quotation and you will get insight when your customer views the proposal. The modern interactive presentation options make an impression and the option to digitally sign makes it very easy for a customer to agree.
The following blog will elaborate on how to make perfect proposals with the right tool: Read more why Microsoft Word is not the best way to create proposals

In order to attract new clients, it’s crucial to use a proposal software that will help you build a strong relationship with your prospect. This means using an intuitive system that is easy to use and helps you create sales documents that will impress your audience. It’s no longer enough to simply send out a proposal and wait for a response. Companies need to keep their audience engaged.
