5 Business Plan Cover Page Tips
Here are some basics for the learning how to create a business plan with a proper cover page. 1. Company Name
First and foremost, the Company's name should be included on the business plan cover. This should be the most prominent feature of the cover, and as such is traditionally in the largest font setting. Immediately, the reader should know the name of the company.
2. Company Logos and Color Scheme
The best business plan covers are those that look like they are of professional quality. This can be accomplished by including a high-quality image of the company's logo along with including the font type and color scheme for the company's marketing materials. Similar to a book cover, a business plan cover is intended to draw the attention of the reader immediately. Plans with an unattractive cover can fall victim to incorrect preconceived notions.
3. Title and Date
When was this plan written? And what is it? The cover should state if this is a Business Plan, Executive Summary or Financial Projections. At this stage, the cover should read:
John's Plumbing, Inc.
Note that the title and date should be featured less prominently than the company name.
4. Less is More
The executive summary will summarize the contents of the business plan. There is no need for the cover to do so, as well. It is also unadvisable to create a business plan cover that is so graphically busy that the information is difficult to discern. Simple, clean and powerful are three goals of a strong business plan cover.
5. CEO Information
Who should the reader contact if they wish to know more information? The name and contact information for the CEO should not be located all the way at the end of the document. It should be on the first page, letting the reader know who is presenting the document.
