A business plan is a very important part of any business. It is usually drawn before the start of the business, but can be improved once a business is started. Developing a good plan may take some time, but it is worth the effort you make to make your business a success. Most people don’t know exactly what goes into a good business plan. What you don’t realize is that every business plan is unique to each business. Just because Candy Shop’s business plan is successful for them doesn’t mean it will be successful for a web hosting business. A business plan may look similar, but what really works is the information it contains.
Here is an example of a business I developed for 9dcinema. This will give you an idea of some of the subjects that go into a good business plan:
1.0 Executive Summary
2.0 Company Summary
2.1 Company Ownership
2.2 Company history (for continuing companies) or
Startup plan (for new companies)
2.3 Company Locations and Facilities
3.0 Products and Services
3.1 Product and Service Description
3.2 Business Advertising Program
3.3 Sources and fulfillment
4.0 Strategy and Implementation Summary
4.1 Customers, Target Markets and New Technology
4.2 Competitive edges
4.4 Major competitors
4.5 Strategic Alliances
5.0 Web Design Summary
6.0 Management Summary
6.1 Organizational Structure
6.2 Personnel Plan
7.0 Financial Plan
7.1 Break-even analysis
7.2 Projected Profit and Loss
7.3 Projected Balance Sheet
As you can see it sounds a bit complicated, but the best thing to do is break it down into sections. Generally, each category (group 1-7) is the same in most business plans. Some categories can be added. The key is to provide as much essential data as possible. Example 5.0 – Web Design Summary. Your Business Plan Mike will look something like this:
Section: 5.0 Web Design Summary

– Marketing materials
The marketing plan and materials are in progress.
As you can see from the above, the details given have already been researched and found. There is no point in men’s position, only proven facts. You can also project various aspects of your business plan, but you also need to do some research. So as you develop your business plan, you want to deal with the facts and information that you already have or are likely to get (not ideas or guesses).
When it comes to developing a good business plan, research is definitely key. The effort you put into it will determine the effort you put into your business.
