In Part One of this blog series we focussed on what a ‘good’ quote consists o.f
In Part Two we discovered the 4 major components of a ‘bad ‘quote.
So now, in the final part in this series, here is a valuable check-list to ensure that you construct as good a quote as possible to represent you and your business.
Do your homework and research before quoting - don’t just rely on Wikipedia
Always double check your facts
Check any statistics you incorporate at least three times to make sure they are correct
If referring to another company make sure it’s the right company and that it is spelt correctly
Ensure your quote is one that you’d be happy for your colleagues, strategic partners and customers to read
Remember that you and your business are being reflected in each and every quote
Get a second opinion from a respected colleague if you’re unsure about the content of the quote
If you’re being controversial ask yourself if you’re doing it for the right reasons
Check the content of your quote, and then check it again just to be sure
So there you have it a whistle-stop tour of formulating the best quote possible.
