How to Bid for Software Projects
People who work as a software freelancers need to bid on projects as
requested by the client. People bid on projects to show their abilities
to get the software project done in time in an effective and
professional manner. But winning a software project is difficult, as
there can be hundreds of bids placed on a single software project. You
need to create a bid that stands out from the rest.
Write a profile about you as a
software developer. This is where you sell yourself as a qualified and
well-educated software worker. Include technical degrees, designing
diplomas, programming certifications, software relevant work experience,
a full resume outlining your software experience and any other major
achievements you have completed within the software industry. Include
industry and field lingo, such as HTML, CSS and XHTML.
Collect your best software work
in a portfolio. You need to supply your portfolio when you bid on a
software project, so the client can see your abilities and previous
work. Examples of software work to include in your portfolio are
programming projects, website designs, software reporting and software
troubleshooting. Show different aspects of your abilities, so the client
does not get the impression you can only do one or two things.
Include any letters of
recommendations and achievements that have come with the projects used
in the portfolio. If possible, ask previous clients to place emphasis on

doubt, give yourself approximately 15 percent in profits. You need to
include hours of planning, designing, programming and testing, if
applicable. Outline your list of duties when suggesting the price for
the client, so he is aware of how the money and time is spent.
Create a sample software project
for this particular project to show what you can do. For example, if
the project is for a website design with HTML and CSS programming, show
various examples of the overall website design and include screen prints
of the coding to show the client how you have completed the look.
Submit your bid for the software
project and await an answer. When submitting, include all of the
relevant information gathered in the previous steps and include a list
of places or methods that the client can reach you, should you be chosen
for an interview. This can be email, instant messenger, chat, phone
number or other types of messengers. Provide the client with several
