Web Design Project Proposal Outline

I shared a screenshot of my web design project proposal to one of my group on the internet and they actually asked if I could share the outline of it. So, this is a summary of how I write my proposals for projects.

The focus of this summary is on web programming projects, but the general ideas can be applied to most proposals.

In writing a project proposal, you only need to be concise and straight to the point.

I usually start with a cover:

Sample Outline

very helpful. thank you for sharing . While tedious to prepare such documents, it is extremely important to implement in order to avoid misunderstandings with clients.
