Writing a compelling pitch is the first step towards winning a project on Catalant. Clients typically review pitches from several qualified candidates, and will choose to schedule a scoping call based on the quality of pitches, and can easily identify generic submissions.
We've recently updated the pitch form to look like the screen shot below.
Below are tips on how to craft a compelling pitch and differentiate yourself from other experts.
Have an expert on your team or in your network who would be a perfect fit for a Catalant project?
While we recommend that experts working independently create an individual Catalant profile here, pitches may be submitted on behalf of a member of your team. Keep the following things in mind when pitching for a member of your team:
Be clear about expert resources
Make it clear to the client that another individual or team member will complete the project.
Upload a full resume or CV
The client won’t be able to see your team member’s Catalant profile. Always upload a full resume or CV of the individual or team members who would work on the project.
Continuously set expectations
If a client requests a call, message the client to clearly explain who will join the conversation or lead the discussion.
