Whether one is a seasoned businessman or a first-time founder, one should know that along with big ambitions for the business, it is essential to have a solid business plan too. Many times, while looking for a business plan, few critical aspects are overlooked because they look very trivial which can cost the business a lot. Having the right business plan makes the entire process of running a business easier as it gives clear guidance of what needs to be done and why. Here are seven aspects that need to be considered while creating a business plan. 

1. Keep the overall vision in the mind 

Before starting to create the business plan, it is necessary to know the vision of the company. Once the vision is decided, the business plan gets easy

to shape. It is a good idea to convert the overall vision into a short-term and long-term vision to ensure that everyday progress is appreciated and celebrated. Further, with a vision in line, everything gets easier to track. 

2. Focus on the scalable value proposition 

The value proposition of a company is often ignored by first-time founders. However, it should lie at the core of all the business plans. A successful value proposition can be created through proper visualization, designing and testing of both pain relievers and gain creators for the customers of the company. It can help the founders to solve many problems right away. 

3. Soft skills need to be enhanced

While drafting a business plan, often the tangible part of the business is considered. However, the intangible part should be given equal importance for a great ROI. It is crucial to invest along with the tangible elements, the growth mindset, leadership strategies, and communication skills of the team. 

4. Set a marketing budget 

The assumption that a product or service requires no to little marketing is nothing but a big lie. When creating a business plan, having a proper budget for meeting the marketing requirement is important. Nothing is available for free in the business industry. 

5. Accounting for unpredicted risk

Risks that are not anticipated can stump anyone including a strong founder too. It is important to have space for questions like “What can stop the business plan from proceeding” or “What can be an unexpected change in the industry” to ensure that one is better prepared to face all kinds of situations. Taking risk is important as it often can result in huge profit like when one wins an award in Lottery Sambad

. Just as one needs to keep checking the Teer Result for knowing about the outcome, a good founder should keep looking for what he/she might be missing or not considering why creating a business plan. 

6. Plan B needs to be there

It is often said that one does not need to have Plan B if they are really serious about their Plan A. Having said that, when in business one always needs to have Plan B because running a business is not always about earning a profit consistently. The entire journey is filled with ups and downs and to mitigate the downs, one needs to have a Plan B for the little failures that one might face while running the business. For having a proper plan B, deep analysis is a must. 

7. Consider the investors

If one is sure that one needs to have investors for scaling up the business, it is important to take into consideration the investors while creating the business plan. When thinking about the investors, one important question that the founder should ask themselves is why should the investor invest in their company? Only a satisfactory answer to this question can bring in investment. Further, before answering the investors about it, a founder should be sure about the answer themselves.

Lastly, a roadmap is always required for the journey ahead. It is something that is created at the initial stage of drafting a business plan but is revised often to include new ideas and strategies to grow the business. As new ideas come and new people join the business, the flexibility of the roadmap becomes important to accommodate everything. Having a rigid roadmap can be quite problematic as it will not easily accommodate itself to the ever-changing landscape of demands of the customers, industry, and investors.
