Section 2: Their Challenge
What issue, challenge, or pain point did the client want you to address?
Why did they have this problem?
Was this a new problem or a pre-existing one? Was it a result of market forces or changes within the industry? Or was it an unforeseen consequence of another action?
What were your client’s expected outcomes from working with a vendor to solve their stated problem?
This answer is critical, as you will circle back to it in section four.
Why did they engage your organization to help?
Were you selected for your expertise? Were they referred to you? Were you selected from several different options? If so, what were the differentiators that made them choose you? If the answer here is not terribly remarkable or relevant to your target persona, you may opt to exclude this detail.

Did you base your response on experience, or was it a brand new challenge that required you to think outside of the box? What research did you conduct? Who on your team was involved?

Did you collaborate with your client on a strategy? Did you collect feedback to inform what your ultimate solution would look like? Were there pilot or testing phases?

Section 4: Results
Did your solution solve the client’s stated problem or accomplish their objective(s)?

Increased sales? Reduced turnover? Improved collaboration?
Are there specific KPIs, measurements, statistics or ROI data you can share that clearly demonstrates the value of the solution/service/strategy you provided?
Please include what each statistic is, as well as over what period it was measured and its relevance to the client’s objective. For example, a 250 percent increase in website traffic over a three-month period.
Which one of those data points would you consider to be the most important? Why?
Finally, would your client agree that you solved their problem or helped them achieve their intended goal?
