What to include in an RFP
RFPs can vary in length from just a few specifications to a dozen or so specific sets of criteria. This may also include getting an understanding of how the agency works as well as its portfolio of previous creative work.
The more specific the information in the RFP, the better the chance of getting a response from agencies that precisely fits their needs. It goes without saying that with out the necessary information, it is likely that the agencies receiving the RFP will have all the information they need to respond, and therefore, more time will need to be spent on the business’s end to make their needs more clear.
