Can you win a competitive architect proposal without marketing?

When I was new in architectural marketing it took a bit to get confident. It was A LOT more than answering questions and doing a "save as."  After three years I thought I'd seen it ALL (and was cockier than I should have been). At seven I knew A LOT - so much I now I still had so much to learn. Now 20+ years in - I know and have done A LOT. And there is always more to learn. 

I suspect most architects who DIY marketing have my year three confidence minus the experience. Not judging - you don't know what you don't know. 

Since we're basically kindred spirits, may I tell you the truth?

Truth: You are not doing a good enough job to do you justice properly! It's not your fault - this is not what you DO. But architect proposals IS what other people do - full time - including staff at your competition's office. I KNOW, because I WAS that staffer. So I kNOW, can anticipate, and spin MANY things. Without a similar background, you don't know what you don't know.

And that's when I realized I could be your secret weapon to level the playing field

Add the insight, experience, and perspective of a 20-year in-house veteran - only when you need it. Who understands how the architect proposal competition is likely submitting and what you need to do to get there. To anticipate what's next. To help you figure out what to do. To give you help you NEED. And who you can count on.
