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.

This resource and guide is pretty cool. I couldn’t agree more with this sentiment:

Leadership training needs to start before the role even begins.
I also like this list that enumerates 10 ways to earn trust and respect of your team:

Be transparent with motives and goals.
Demonstrate your character and intention to do the right thing for your team.
Put the team’s needs before your own.
Help employees grow by letting them test, learn, and fail without fear.
Trust employees off the bat, don’t make them feel they have to earn it.
Let yourself be vulnerable, and admit to mistakes.
Use inclusive words like “we” to show that you’re part of the team, not above it.
Ask for feedback and take action quickly where change is needed.
Be yourself – people respond best to authenticity.
Be open to learning from your team – everyone will have something to teach you!
