ShineBid Services, one of the UK’s leading businesses on winning government and highly regulated bids, today launched a new digital learning programme to equip businesses with its tried and tested step-by-step masterplan to winning bids.
The first module to be made available is Writing and Review, which is split into three chapters that can be completed from an introductory skill level. The module will arm users with the essential knowledge to writing compelling responses that are engaging, memorable, impactful, robust and high-scoring.
“Writing bids is more than simply answering questions; for businesses setting out to win RFPs, it is crucial to convince the buyer why you should be chosen ahead of the competition,” said ShineBid Services CEO Anne McNamara. “Bid responses must address the explicit bid requirements, respond to the buyer’s underlying needs, and ultimately showcase a strong win strategy. The launch of our digital learning course marks a new direction in bid training and we are excited to help enable users to write great bid responses whenever they want, from wherever they are in the world.”
Writing and Review is set within a scenario of a bid team working on a project that resembles a real-life bidding situation. This module– which will take approximately two hours to complete – contains nine free supplementary resources, including activities to complete offline, templates, guides and short quizzes.
The digital learning programme was developed by award-winning bid professionals and is made up of ten modules that form The ShineBid Winning Masterplan™. With a win rate of 80%, and more than $10 billion won for clients since its inception, each module encompasses ShineBid’s expert knowledge alongside a series of interactive tests, offline activities and free resources.
The ShineBid Winning Masterplan™ is a methodical guide to ShineBid’s tried and tested approach to winning bids, starting from gathering the intelligence to create a strategy, the design and branding of a bid, managing the writing process, to the final submission. The digital learning programme will enable users to expand their knowledge, put into practice ShineBid’s methodology and ultimately win more business.
Users will receive a certificate of completion upon finishing the Writing and Review module. ShineBid plans to continue to add to its digital learning resources, with a total of 10 modules set to be launched to cover every step of the bidding process.
