Dana Bashor Consulting Services Provides a Quick Business Plan Checklist

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - September 2, 2010) -  Business plans require a lot of reworking and attentiveness as it is difficult to have all the answers to future business situations. But using some guidelines, one can bring a great business plan into reality. For those who have a great business idea but may not know where to start, Dana Bashor Consulting Services provides a helpful business plan checklist for entrepreneurs writing their own business plan.

There are five key things to keep in a business plan, which are:

1) A clear purpose that defines the company's place in the market and how the employees and owners must view the company.

2) Who the customers are and how they are to be attracted via marketing.

3) Details relating to the workings of the company, like taxes, brand registry, costs, return on investment (ROI) and other details.

4) Debts and bankruptcy planning information.

5) A full description of future goals with year-by-year goals.

A Clear Purpose
The business needs to have a bold statement that differentiates the product or services from the market at large. It must also address the customers' needs in a brief sentence or two. Remember, to keep it simple and sweet.

Who are the Customers
The customers must be defined -- are they male? Female? Are they doctors or lawyers, or a vast and broad group? How much may they be willing to spend? These details must be brought in from market research and outlined with some visuals and some cold numbers.

Financial Details
Taxes and copyright information must be -- at the very least -- outlined in this section. It is good to be prepared for everything and to have it in clear writing.

Goals
The future of the company depends on the intentions of the owners and what the customers wish to receive from their service or product provider. A sparkling prediction of the future isn't necessary, only an outline of future objectives: X% profit increases, and so on.
