Using sales proposals to increase your average job revenue (good, better, best)

  • Updated


In this article, you will learn how to use sales proposals to help increase your average job revenue.

Sales Proposals — commonly known as “good, better, best” — is available as a Marketplace add-on that enables you to present your clients with multiple estimates in a clear and simple way. Sales proposals are designed to help your customers understand the different options your company offers for a particular service, and allow them to choose the one that makes the most sense for their needs and budget.

Offering multiple options all at once also allows your customers to consider spending more than they normally would, ultimately boosting your revenue. Sales proposals can help you close bigger deals faster, which can quickly increase your average job revenue.

Why use Sales Proposals

  • To answer questions
    Clients normally have many questions after seeing an initial estimate. Save yourself time and avoid those questions by sending a detailed proposal that includes multiple options.
  • To upsell
    Sometimes clients are willing to pay for more than the bare minimum. Help your clients understand the relationship between your prices and the quality of services offered.
  • To help techs explain pricing to clients
    Your techs aren’t sales people — and they shouldn’t have to be. Sales proposals provide a clear, simple, and professional presentation of your estimates for everybody to easily understand.
  • To beat your competition
    People love to shop around and get estimates from different service businesses. Make sure your estimates stand out with Workiz’s interactive sales proposals.
