Looking for a business plan online? While it might seem like a good idea to swipe a template off the Internet and to copy and paste your idea into the text, you're actually just hurting yourself. That's because a business plan isn't just used to secure funding for your start- up—it should serve as a roadmap to your business' operations. Your business plan then should be a highly personalized document that contains elements that are unique to your business—something a template business plan online simply can't accomplish. What's more, investors or lenders can usually sniff out these templates, and using one can make the entrepreneur look uniformed, or worse, lazy. To create your own custom business plan then you should focus on the following:
• Detailing what makes your business special.
• Only including sections that are relevant to your business—if you're not distributing a product, for instance, you don't need a distribution strategy.
• Using real-world speak and avoiding template-y business jargon.
• Tailoring your plan to your target market; for instance, if you're seeking a Small Business Administration-backed loan, make sure you meet all their requirements.
