Components of the Commercial Proposal Template

The Wizard software builds this template for you, customized to your needs. The Wizard software is included in every Proposal Pack and the Proposal Kit Professional. You can customize this list of chapters as needed in the Wizard software, such as adding additional chapters, removing chapters, and changing the order of chapters.

Cover Letter

The Cover Letter serves as an introduction to your proposal, setting the tone and presenting the main goal in a clear, professional manner. It should capture the reader's interest and encourage them to read the detailed proposal. It typically includes a brief overview of what the proposal contains and why it is beneficial for the recipient.

Title Page

The Title Page acts as the face of your proposal, presenting essential information such as the proposal's title, the date, and the names of both the proposing company and the prospective client. This page should look clean and professional, providing a strong first impression.

Table of Contents

The Table of Contents helps in navigating the proposal document. It lists all the chapters included in the proposal along with their page numbers, allowing the reader to easily find specific sections.

Executive Summary

The Executive Summary provides a succinct overview of the proposal, highlighting key points like the purpose, the main offerings, anticipated outcomes, and the benefits to the potential client. This summary should be compelling enough to convince the reader of the value of reading the entire document.

Company History

The Company History chapter gives background information about your business, including its founding, development, and any notable achievements. This section helps to establish credibility and trust by showcasing the experience and longevity of your company.

Services Provided

In the Services Provided chapter, detail the specific services your company offers that are relevant to the proposal. Describe how these services can benefit the client, including any unique features or competitive advantages.

Product Line

The Product Line section outlines the products your company offers, focusing on those that are relevant to the proposal. Provide details such as specifications, benefits, and how these products meet the needs of the potential client.

Market Analysis

The Market Analysis presents research on the industry, market trends, target demographics, and competitive analysis. This information supports the need for your proposed services or products and illustrates your understanding of the market landscape.

Implementation Timeline

The Implementation Timeline outlines the key stages and milestones of the project from start to finish. This helps the client understand the duration of the project and major activities involved.

Cost Summary

The Cost Summary provides a detailed breakdown of all costs associated with the proposal. Using Proposal Kit's line-item database, this can be automatically filled with precise data, presenting a transparent and accurate financial picture to the client.


The Guarantee section outlines any assurances or warranties offered with your services or products. This can help to alleviate any concerns from the client by demonstrating confidence in your offerings.

Company Policies

In the Company Policies chapter, detail the standard procedures and policies of your company that are relevant to the proposal. This may include payment terms, service delivery protocols, and cancellation policies, helping to set expectations clearly.


The References section includes testimonials, case studies, and examples of past successes with other clients. This serves as proof of your company's capability and reliability, enhancing your credibility.

Back Page with Contact Information

The final page of the proposal should include comprehensive contact information and any other essential details that allow the client to easily communicate with your company. This may include phone numbers, email addresses, and physical addresses.
