Business Plan Tune-Ups
It's all about putting your best foot forward.
Most of us are well aware of the difficulties involved in writing a good business plan. What we don't often consider, however, are the difficulties involved in reading a business plan and making a judgment based on the information contained in the document.
Writing a good plan means a good deal more than just getting some basic information on paper. An effective business plan is one that develops a persuasive argument where each of the individual components seamlessly integrates and moves to a logical conclusion. The plan must capture the interest of the reader and motivate them to move forward.
Making a favorable impression with your business plan is critically important. What do the professional plan writers do to improve the look, feel and readability of a business plan?
- Use a simple conversational writing style
- Avoid long and complex sentences
- Use technical terms sparingly and explain them clearly
- Keep your paragraphs short, simple and succinct
- Use bullet points whenever possible
- Use graphics (a picture is worth…)
- Pay attention to how each section flows into the next
- Use tables and charts when possible
- Quote reputable sources to reinforce your position
- Check sentence structure, grammar, spelling, and syntax
- Understand the motivation of the reader
- Have someone read your plan with a critical eye
