In terms of inspiration, I'm deeply inspired by the intersection of art and technology, as well as by the work of designers and developers who strive to make the digital world more accessible, inclusive, and user-centric.

How to write good proposal as a web developer?

Dear Asam,


I'd like to share some insights on crafting compelling proposals. The key lies in understanding a client's challenges and offering a concise yet impactful solution.


Here are some effective strategies:

  • Deep Client Comprehension: Thoroughly analyze the client's needs and pain points.
  • Solution Teaser: Briefly showcase how your expertise addresses their specific challenges.
  • Portfolio Power: Include a link to your portfolio, highlighting relevant work demonstrating your capabilities.
  • Authentic Voice: Write in your own style, conveying your expertise and value proposition. Avoid relying on AI-generated content.
  • Conciseness is Key: Keep your proposal clear, concise, and easy to navigate.

By following these steps, you can create proposals that resonate with clients and showcase your ability to deliver exceptional results.


Best regards,

Falgun Sonwane
