  2. Demonstrate Expertise: Be sure to highlight your experience and expertise in the industry. Showcase your previous work, providing industry-specific case studies, and share examples of how you have helped other clients succeed.
  3. Showcase Your Team: Be sure to showcase the team that will be working on the project. Do this by including details on the qualifications of the team members, as well as any awards or recognition they have received.
