The ideal way to vet your web development partner is to spend time with them in person, ask lots of questions and figure out if you’re both the right fit for the job.
Some corporate environments, however, require an RFP. In our opinion, this is a shame, since RFPs often mean that the deal comes down to price rather than creativity, problem solving or relationship.
So we want to make that process as easy as possible for you while still getting the answers to the questions you need…even if, ultimately, you don’t choose us.
We have put together a sample web development RFP that you can download for reference. Simply remove the sections that do not apply to your project, customize the items marked in italicized red type, paste the resulting text into your company's stationary and send. (We hope you'll send us a copy!)
