Stratos was looking for partners to support the marketing and PR efforts for a product launch. The potential partners came up with different approaches and strategies. Pitches for new business have subtle pieces that can win the business or lose it.

This presentation covers considerations around the RFP process, communication, level of detail, client and product research, relationship building, and followup.
