FULL SERVICE BID CAMPAIGNS
BidWrite is a friend of Blue Edge, one of the brightest and best bid-winning agencies in the UK. Where we offer primarily writing and editing, they grow major bid campaigns from seedling to success — from research and win strategies, memorable branding and complex project management to print and multimedia submissions.
Paul Sharville is the director and lead bid writer at BidWrite. He has been writing professional bids for fifteen years, for clients with businesses ranging from translation, software design and FM to waste management, construction and civil engineering.
He’s been a professional writer for over twenty years, including journalism, speech and script writing, but has divided the majority of his working life between being a marketing copywriter and a bid writer. He’s also done stints as a design studio manager and creative director. Paul’s bid writing career began when he was a marketing director for an FM services company. He built a bid department from scratch, took on a heavy bid calendar and raised their average win rate to 80%. He has tendered for projects ranging from £100k to £4bn.
Paul has spent more than his fair share of time writing bids at 3 am surrounded by empty pizza boxes, an anti-social habit he learned to break, which is why he’s now able and qualified to advise others on writing successful bids during the hours of daylight (mostly).
