QuoteRobot makes it easy to write winning proposals.
Let’s face it, proposal writing generally sucks. It’s unpaid time spent in the hopes of winning a new project. If you’re pitching against other companies, the chances of winning are further diluted. But, it’s a necessary evil.
Here are 3 tips from QuoteRobot to help you win more:
For example, instead of saying you’ll build a wordpress website with a blog (feature), say you’ll attract new customers (benefit) by making a website that’s easier to update.
A detailed timeline with deliverables at key milestones will show that you have a process and have thought about the project from start to finish.
A well designed proposal will convert much better than one authored in Word. If you’re a designer, you gotta represent.

Let’s face it, we’re heading into the worst time of year for getting work done. Everyone is getting ready for [insert holiday of choice here].
It seems like Janice is always out of the office. Bob’s coming in late every day. And if Kelly sings [insert holiday song of choice here] one more time, you’re going to go insane. But you can’t work from home – your shared drive is locked down and your VPN is just. so. slow.
This holiday season, ask your boss for a cloud-based collaboration platform. You’ll be able to securely work from home and your coworkers will love the built-in social tools. They can share updates about what they’re working on, and you can ignore the cat videos. Your boss will love your increased productivity.
Colugo is the easiest way to share photos privately with your friends and family.
Colugo is a simple solution to a simple organization and communication problem. Colugo doesn’t use gimmicks like other apps do. No “magic” albums or location based sharing or other features that may sound cool in theory, but when you actually use them you find they are not very useful (at best), and a privacy nightmare (at worst). Colugo is private photo sharing done right.
Want to share some of your photos publicly and others privately - in a single app?
With Colugo you can! Make one album for the world to see, and “publish” it. Keep your other albums private, viewable by only those you invite.
Tired of returning from a party and having to contact all your friends for pics?
With Colugo you won’t have to. Partygoers can take pictures directly into a party album you create and you all share.

Introducing Q, the latest update to Igloo’s cloud intranet platform.
Q has a smarter search: from any search bar, when you start typing you’ll instantly see content that matches your keywords, ranked by relevance.
Smart search applies to people, too. In fact, we’ve added the ability to find and @mention your colleagues anywhere inside the Igloo platform – including microblog posts, discussions and comments. (And because names are a tricky thing, we try to provide recommendations even if you spell them a bit wrong).
Q is a free update applied automatically for all existing Igloo customers. Seamless delivery of new features every quarter is one of the best reason to choose a cloud based intranet.

Sifter is a simple project management tool for small teams. It frees you up to focus on shipping better software instead of checking in on team members.
It’s perfect for serving as your team’s central location for capturing and managing all of a project’s issues, questions, bugs and new features. No more swimming through emails or multiple applications to check on the status of an issue. Sifter’s powerful search and filtering make sure you can easily find what you need.
Also, by keeping things obsessively simple, Sifter helps ensure that even the least technical team members feel welcome and comfortable participating so that they can be actively involved in both development and testing without any training.
The result is increased participation working hand-in-hand with a focus on accountability to ensure projects get delivered on time and that nothing slips through the cracks.
You start your day, grab a coffee and update Bob. Then you swing by your manager’s office and update him. He’s like, “Oh. Em. Gee.” (He thinks that’s cool).
Now you’ve got to update his boss.
You get back three conversations later and tell Janice what happened. You try to ignore the guy listening over the cubicle wall… but then you update him so he doesn’t spread the wrong story.
Now your coffee’s cold. You start your day.
Or, you could write a blog post inside your team space.
