rfp-robotRFP ROBOT: Website Request for Proposal Generator

The time has come for a new website (or website redesign), which means you need to write a website request for proposal or web RFP. A Google search produces a few examples, but they vary wildly and don’t seem to speak really to your goals for developing or redesigning a new website. You need to write a website RFP that will clearly articulate your needs and generate responses from the best website designers and developers out there. But how?

Have no fear, RFP Robot is here. He will walk you through a step-by-step process to help you work through the details of your project and create a PDF formatted website design RFP that will provide the information vendors need to write an accurate bid. RFP Robot will tell you what info you should include, point out pitfalls, and give examples.

The reality is that most people and most software companies do not actually use the very product(s) that they build. And, if we are to be even more honest, if they do use them then they don’t actually love the experience.
This gap is not a bad thing… except when you realize that most of this feedback never actually gets to the product design and product development team.
It’s entirely okay to think that the product that your team makes isn’t very good or that it doesn’t quite fit one’s needs – the problem is that the team members keep these thoughts to themselves, perhaps because they are scared to voice their opinion in case of reprisal or because it’s just culturally unacceptable.
Obviously forcing your staff to use the product is a bad idea and sign too.
As a product builder myself, I don’t always fall in love with the very thing that I create – that takes time and many iterations. What I end up really loving, though, is the process by and through which we get there.
And that just takes a lot of patience, understanding, and a belief that we can, in fact, get there. Then the bad signs turn good.
