We review. You win.
Proposals are unique, complex, and critical to your organization's growth. So, we developed an equally unique service that combines copy editing with a mock evaluation, peer review, and compliance check—resulting in proposals that are clear, persuasive, and easily evaluated.
Your proposals are good. Our proposal specialists can make them better. Let's chat.
Our specialists review commercial, government, and grant proposals for organizations with all types of needs and budgets. Some clients have us review every proposal draft, while others have us perform quarterly audits to identify trends and opportunities for improvement.
Whatever your situation, we will work with you to identify the best and most cost-effective ways to increase your proposal quality and win rate.

Our proposal reviews ensure:
"Freestyle understands our business and messaging, so their reviews make our documents not only easier to read, but also more persuasive for evaluators. And beyond that, they take the time to provide instruction for how to improve future documents, which has really elevated our team's performance."

Our Review Approach
A Freestyle team member will speak with you to explain our process and answer your questions, as well as learn more about you, your style, and your organization. Then we’ll talk about your proposals, including their typical length, prospect type, structure, timeline, etc.
Based on our conversation, we’ll provide you with recommendations for the project and a pricing quote. If you decide that Freestyle isn’t right for you, no worries. But if you’d like to work with us, we’ll draw up a contract, you’ll sign and return it, and we’ll get working.
Once we are familiar with the opportunity details (e.g., RFP requirements, competitive situation, proposal strategy), we'll review your proposal using the "comment" and "track changes" features in MS Word, develop a report, and submit them by the agreed-upon deadline.
Once you have reviewed our edits and report, which will include recommendations and section-by-section evaluations, we'll conduct a web conference (or in-person meeting, if desired) to discuss our feedback and determine appropriate action items for improvement.
Done! Now you'll have concise, professionally edited content and a road map to creating proposals that inform, persuade, and win more business. Should your action items include additional Freestyle services (e.g., training, template development), we'll get working.
