To make a business plan template usually begins with the name and the details of the owners of the plan. This is followed by a table of contents that constitutes an executive summary, a general description of the company, the products and services the company offers, the marketing plan, the operational plan, and the management and organizational structures. These elements complete the narrative part of the business template. The financial part of the template should contain a financial statement, startup expenses and capitalization details, and a complete financial plan that encompasses the goals of the company.
With a wide range of free business plan templates available online, be sure to search for one that suits your business. There is no point using a plan designed for an accountants firm when you are starting a fast food franchise. Plans suitable for Windows users are available as MS Word documents and Excel spreadsheets. While Excel can be daunting if you are not familiar with it, plans on Excel are often very good to work with. Since Excel is one of the best spreadsheet programs out there it is well worth learning how to use it.
If you have never made a business plan it may seem impossible. Fortunately a template will walk you through the process. While you can make adjustments as necessary, the sooner you start using your plan template, the more you will get to know how it works. As you adjust your ideas they will be reflected in the plan. When your plan is complete you can use it to present your case to possible investors. If you can, get an experienced friend or business acquaintance to look it over first.
