Here are our top 3 tips to creating a capability statement that demands attention:
Use Striking Visual Design
A modern design that is sharp and balanced will make your company appear more professional. With the right colours, font, graphics and layout, your capability statement will stand out and your information will be clearly communicated to the recipient.
Keep it Precise
A lengthy capability statement that covers every detail of your business and uses overly technical terminology risks losing the interest of the reader. Keep it precise and to the point. A capability statement should be 3-4 pages long and only include relevant information.
Consider UX for Print and Digital
Whether your capability statement is printed or in digital format, user experience is key to success. Digital file sizes should be reduced so that they’re fast to load and easy to open. If you’re sending in a printed capability statement, make sure it’s printed on high-quality paper, that the ink is smudge-proof and that it looks visually appealing. A talented graphic design company can ensure you tick all of the boxes when it comes to the design and printing of your capability statements.
