Writing A Business Plan

Oct 28, 2016 | Articles

A business plan is a key component of the sometimes confusing strategy involved when starting a business. A business plan is a roadmap for business success that usually projects 3-5 years ahead and outlines the course a company intends to take in order to grow revenues. Actually sitting down and creating one, however, can be a challenge for any entrepreneur because you have to set specific goals and come up with effective business strategies.

At LeTip International, we can help you create a business plan in order to make your business a success. As a professional networking organization where small businesses go to grow, LeTip has the tools you need in order to make that happen. We can walk you through your existing business plan or help you create a new one unique to your business, especially if your goals have changed since you started your business.

When writing a business plan, there are several key elements that need to be included. All these individual sections deal with the specifics of how different things will be addressed in order to make the business a success. One of the best ways LeTip can help you, though, is by concentrating on the marketing of your business.

A Market Analysis details the research you have done in your industry, market, and about your competitors. This is a very detailed section of your business plan where the size of your market is discussed, as well as what percentage of that market you plan on securing. Trends will be mapped out here (growth trends, consumer preference, etc.), growth potential, barriers and how you will overcome them will also be addressed.

With the aid of active LeTip members, the way you market your business and what your sales strategy involves can be viewed through the eyes of experienced business owners. The networking aspect of LeTip, for which the organization is internationally known, means various business owners – from solopreneurs to CEOs of large corporations – can work with you to refine your marketing message into one that is successful and effective.

Think of LeTip as a tool in your professional toolbox that can be used to tweak, fix, repair, or grow your business. The LeTip International motto is “Give, Get, Grow … Repeat.” Networking, especially on the level that LeTip has perfected, leads to businesses becoming successful.
