Although no one’s going to force you to draw up a business plan, having one is always going to improve your chances of reaching the goals you set for yourself.
Most business owners will need a plan if they intend to look for funding or investment. Others start trading and come to a point – perhaps through sudden growth or lack of clear direction – where they realise they need a road map to navigate by.
Knowing what information needs to go into the plan is key, and that’s where our experience and expertise gained over many years working closely with businesses, lenders and investors can give you a truly dynamic edge.
We’ll provide concise, coherent commentary laid out in the right way to present your proposition or plan in a compelling way. And if you need to pitch to potential lenders and investors, we’ll even come on board as part of your presentation team, adding our authority and credibility into the mix.
Competition for funding is intense these days, and bad or average business plans are two-a-penny and easy to turn down. Not only that, but the people you’re likely to be asking for investment will have seen more than their fair share of them.
We don’t do off-the-shelf business planning. Every single document we write is tailored to just one individual business. They’re written to convince and to persuade, so you’ll get a document to catch the imagination and make your business the ideal destination for investment.
And even if you’re not looking for funding, getting us to put together a business plan with you still makes a whole lot of sense, because by going through the process of creating the document, you’ll get a really clear idea of what your business can achieve and what it will take to get there.
It then acts as a marker in time, giving you a way to benchmark progress against clearly-defined goals and objectives.
Once you have that depth of understanding of the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats your business faces, you’ll find you’re better focused, more efficient and effective and outcome-orientated.
The issues and decisions that might have you staring at the ceiling at 3am will also become a lot easier, because ultimately they’ll be decided by a whole load of parameters you’ve already thought about, established and committed yourself to.
