Do you know what to expect when bidding for animation tenders? By the end of this blog, you’ll know four secrets from the Creative Tenders Team. Keep reading to find out what they are!
First things first, when you bid for animation tenders, you need to consider your economic financial standing. Basically, you need to consider your financial position to ensure you can deliver the contract. So, you need to look at the following:
Top tip! Avoid contracts that are worth more than 50% of your annual turnover. For example, if your annual turnover is £500,000, you shouldn’t tender for contracts worth more than £250,000.
To bid for animation tenders and be successful, you need to show your previous experience. It’s not enough to tell the buyer how you’re going to do something – you need to show them.
So, instead of outlining what you can do for them, show them how you delivered for your previous clients. If you can get testimonials that showcase your past successes, even better! To secure the contract, you need to give the buyer as much evidence as possible.
When you find the perfect tender, it can be tempting to start writing your tender response straight away. After all, you need to do everything you can to win the contract. Answering as quickly as possible will give you the best chance of success, right?
Actually, this isn’t the case!
When you bid for animation tenders, planning your tender response is crucial. If you start writing without a plan, you’re likely to miss key details from the buyer’s specifications.
To avoid this, you should start planning your response as soon as possible. Consider internal deadlines and how you can meet them. Break down the tender documents to work out exactly what the buyer is asking of you. As a result of this preparation, you’ll be more than ready to tackle your tender response.
To stand out in such a competitive space, you need to add as much value as possible to the contract. Added value, also known as social value, is now mandatory in public sector contracts, with a compulsory weighting of 10%. Therefore, you need to show the buyer how your business will deal with environmental, social, and economic factors.
