GO ON A PRIVATE RESEARCH
Before you go out trying to convince your audience (customers) that your business offers the best-make sure it truly offers the best. I recommend writing a detailed outline that shortens your business “story”. Find out those who are also in the same business with you, find out their area of expertise and their feebleness. By testing your ideas against those that are already in motion, you can easily find out where your plan will excel and where you are falling short. This way, you can improve your business before you start and once you start, you will be ahead of the race.
IDENTIFY YOUR TARGET AREA
One key spice to writing a topic tier business plan is arranging the plan for a specific target area(key audience) and telling them what they need to know. I advice that you break down the plan according to the area you wish to attract. Are you trying to get a new business partner, attract new customers or applying for a loan no matter what make sure you include a detailed cost and Return on Investment projection that can be measures and are realistic. Especially in the case of lenders, they will want to know if you have considered being practical in your plan and you are not relying on wishful thinking and unlikely gain in the market.
SUMMARIZE YOUR IDEAS
Another word to use if I am to say is “Go Straight to The point”. First of all, it is important that you summarize your ideas for yourself- this shows that you have a solid view of your plan and you are taking critical steps to ensure that you succeed. Plus, lender and potential partners also have no interest in flowery phrases or winding word patterns. If you can get them to key into your idea in a few words, they will quickly move to the next proposal. And don’t forget the business plan’s executive summary, which lends your plan legitimately because it depicts how qualified you are to your team.
