The blue— or should we say, green, print.
There are three purposes of a business plan. First, it is required for any company looking to raise capital. Second, your company should use it as a roadmap clearly outlining your company’s goals and operating procedures, therefore permitting you to focus your energy on activities that move your business forward. Thirdly, it provides a blueprint of your methods and intentions when communicating with all necessary licensing, compliance, and regulatory agencies. Among other things, a business plan should include:
- A clear description of the products and services you offer
A well defined analysis of your industry
An honest assessment of your company’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats (SWOT Analysis)
A breakdown of your potential customers and their buying behaviors
A comprehensive list of your company’s major competitors and your competitive advantages over them
A complete marketing plan
An analysis of your revenues, costs, and projected profits
A roadmap and timetable for achieving your goals and objectives
