How to Use a Business Plan

by on August 10, 2018 in Funding Money The Biz Tips

Bargain Business Plans takes the future of your business very seriously. As we explore the needs of over 800 markets, we are still shocked to see startups, ma & pop shops, small business owners, and entrepreneurs with no idea how important a business plan is. Not just important, but beneficial through the lifetime of your business. But, we don’t do it alone. As a business owner, it’s up to you to make most of your business plan. Here are a few ways we share when skeptics ask how to use a business plan.

Reel in Investors

So many businesses give up entirely on the concept of investors. “It’s too hard” or even “my business isn’t good enough”. Both of these may have an element of reality to them, but overall, no. There are risks and benefits in many aspects of business, but if you neglect to have a business plan, you’re not even trying to get investors to notice.

How to use a business plan regarding investments is by creating an executive statement that addresses the need that you are solving. Don’t obsess on numbers, or being unique, or even being the first in your market. Chances are, you’re not. But, you may very well provide what people need and that is what investors specialize in.

Prepare for Pressure Points

It’s incredible to see how minor tweaks made in how something is done can have a monumental impact on the result. Use your business plan to identify where things can be achieved at a better cost or more efficiently. It’s nearly impossible to address all potential possibilities without laying it out in a business plan.

Plan Your Prospects

Take the guesswork out of potential partners and employees. Affecting hiring starts with knowing exactly what you’re looking for. A business plan aligns your vision and values. You want all potential prospect to do the same. Save time on interviews and land the perfect employees and partners by defining exactly what it is your business needs now and later.

Plan for Failure

We don’t want to admit it, but failure is an entirely possible outcome to starting a business. It happens. But, it doesn’t have to end tragically. Don’t lose your house and life savings with a sinking ship. Use your exit strategy to count your loses without losing everything.
