Your business plan should provide certain details about your idea, including your intended market and the industry in general. Using a business plan template will ensure that you don’t overlook any important information.
Know your market. A big part of knowing whether your business will be successful is understanding your audience. Make sure your plan is clear about your target market – who will you be selling to and how many other companies are already selling similar products?
Title Page. Enter your business information including the legal name, address, etc. If you already have a business logo you can add it at the top or bottom of the title page.
Operating Plan. The operating plan outlines the physical requirements of your business, such as office, warehouse, or retail space, equipment, inventory and supply needs, labor, etc. For a one-person, home-based consulting business the operating plan will be short and simple, but for a business such as a restaurant or manufacturer that requires custom facilities, supply chains, specialized equipment, and multiple employees, the operating plan needs to be much more detailed.
