    What ever your idea is, you just want to write in such a manner that it should be a business plan. you go step by step

    just write your idea on a paper, first.

    In the business plan you will inject your own capital or you will borrow.

    If you borrow money, how u r going to reply with interest.

    Consider the staff cost, rent, furniture etc..if machinery required how much these all will cost you.

    then how much you need for working capital.

    Think about market your product, is there any demand ? if demand is available what about supply.

    how much sales are you expecting compare this with your revenue.

    put all the information into the worksheet just put the formula + or –

    your plan is ready…with Profit and loss…

    Is it a business plan or a proposal you need?

    A business plan is an internal document for how you want to sustain or grow your business. A business proposal is an external sales document used to create new business.

    Your business plan should firstly set out the goals and mission for your company – usually for the following twelve months. Update it every three months or so. It doesn’t have to be a long document, but give some thoughts to realistic targets and how you are going to achieve them. Consider any risks or threats and what you can do to counter them.

    It gets a little bit more specific if you are trying to write a business plan for angel or venture funding – they want to know additional bits of information such as company valuations and how you are going to include new investors etc.

    A business proposal is usually for a client, though can be for grant funding. What is the business need and what are you going to do to provide a solution that meets that need. Persuade the client by showing providing a solution and backing it up with evidence that you can deliver. Solution + credibility + value = persuasion. Be credible in your price as well as reputation.

    With grant funding there are usually guidelines published about how to respond and usually someone in the funding organization is available to guide your through it to a certain extent.

    A business plan should prove that your business will generate enough revenue to cover your expenses and make a satisfactory return for bankers or investors.

    * Executive Summary – features the highlights of your plan and sells your idea in two pages or less.
    * Company Summary – a factual description of your company, ownership, and history.
    * Products (or Services or both) – describes your products and/or services and how they stand out from competitive products and services.
    * Market Analysis – provides a summary of your typical customers, competitive landscape, market size, and expected market growth.
    * Strategy and Implementation – describes how you will sell your product, how you will put your plan into action, and establishes milestones.
    * Management Summary – provides background on the management team, their experiences, and key accomplishments.
    * Financial Plan-contains key financials including sales, cash flow, and profits.

    A business proposal is to persuade a client and demonstrates the benefits of your solution and you credibility in delivering it.

    Firstly, good on you for wanting to write your idea into a Business Plan – this will help you to validate that your idea is worthwhile spending your valuable time on and give you a useful tool to help you actually reach your goals!

    Any good business plan can be both a planning tool for yourself as well as a proposal for putting to investors or other people you want to get involved in your business idea. For best results I would suggest:

    a) Find a Business Plan template that you like to save yourself the trouble making your own, and
    b) Find a few examples of good business plans to give you an idea what you’re aiming for (it’s hard to know what a ‘good’ business plan is if you haven’t seen one before!)

    There are tonnes of templates and samples online (just search google) or you are welcome to use the one I use: http://www.katrinasarena.com/2009/08/25/killer-business-plan-in-9-easy-steps-incl-template/

    There’s also a few other hints and tips on there that might be useful to you.

    All the best with your planning and good luck with your business idea!
