Most creatives probably tremble at the thought of creating a business plan, and most likely keep pushing it to the back burner until eventually they need one and throw something together that isn’t complete.
It’s a structural tool that can keep you, your employees and your business on the correct path.
The first purpose of a business plan is to identify the aspirations of the business.
You will want to be able to hand this business plan over to investors, peers, banks, attorneys, etc, so it’s important to keep a defined look. It includes the background behind your business, your mission, your vision and your tagline/message (if you have one). The rest of the business plan will go into much more detail.
But, since we are creatives, don’t be afraid to play with the layout and colors, just don’t get too crazy! – this is where you will explain who your business is targeting, who your ideal clients are; their personalities, what they like to do, how old they are, their income level, how much they are willing to spend on your products and/or services.
