When a customer asks you for a quote, they're giving you a golden opportunity. This video covers how to write a quote for a job so you can close the deal quickly and win new business.

A price quote is a call to action. It’s a formal document that explains your pricing for a job or order, and gives your customer a clear cost for the work. When a customer asks you for a quote, it means they're seriously considering doing business with you. The quotation process might seem like an unnecessary formality, but it isn't. New business is won or lost at this stage, so it's important to get it right.

In this video we'll look at what details to include in a quote, and how you can make price quotes work for you. With the right approach you'll get a better response. This will also help you pitch your services at the best price – for you.
