So when using one or more of these 7 ways to increase profit, the first one (adding more customers) might be the one you want to focus on last. It's probably more expensive. Now, if you had your plan completed and it showed what your business needed to do over the next 10 years to give you the salary and profit you wanted, the next thought would be how do I make it happen. Well the best way would be to take it one year at a time. Concentrate on next year first and then choose one or more of 2 through 7 to work on before trying to add customers.
But your idea may be so new that you may also need to talk to potential customers, host some focus groups, talk to an ad agency, or maybe even make a prototype and float it past some people. Be prepared to spend the time. Remember, it's not about the Plan but the Planning. Build It on Paper First _ Whether you decide to use business plan writing software or to just follow this guide and create your plan with your word processor, here are the sections of a good plan and the questions that need to be addressed: Cover Page _ Show the name of the company, your name, and the date. Introduction _ What is the name and address of the business? Who are the principals, their titles, and their addresses? What is the nature or purpose of the business? What is your launch date? How much start_up and/or operating capital is needed? Executive Summary _ One to three pages that summarize all the information to follow; come back and write this last.
