Before you read anything else, the first thing that you need to understand is that proposals can be a huge waste of time for you and for your prospect. If they are not created the right way, and if the proper foundation hasn't been built, then you'll be spinning your wheels. Most proposals have a 25% win rate. If done right, your rate should jump to 60% _ 80%.
To create a table in Word, choose Table from the Insert tab. Word will display the Insert Table pop_up. Use your mouse to select the number of columns and rows in your table. As you highlight the row and table combinations, Word will display the corresponding table in the document below the Insert Table pop_up. When you have highlighted the number of rows and columns you need, click the mouse button. Word will insert the corresponding table into the document. You can adjust the column widths and row heights as needed. Additionally, when you insert content into a cell, the cell width and height will adjust accordingly.
