What It’s Like to Work with a Professional Business Plan Consultant

There are several business plan consultants with whom you can work. However, most aren’t very good.

Remember, you need a business plan that raises funding for your company and will help you build a thriving business. While anyone can jot down your idea on paper, most will not do what a professional business consultant can well.

You may want to think of it this way. If you were to run a Super Bowl ad for your company, would you hire a marketing firm with a track record of excellent results with Super Bowl ads? One that had unique expertise in understanding your target audience and crafting a message that persuaded them to take the actions you wanted?

Or would you hire a “guy” you found on CraigsList who said he could create your ad for $400?

Clearly, you would go with the experienced firm.

The same is true with your business plan. If your business plan consultant can’t expertly conduct market research regarding your industry, competition, and customers, you won’t be able to develop the right strategies to grow your company.

Likewise, if your business plan consultant doesn’t spend significant time each month with your target customers (venture capitalists, bankers, angel investors, loan officers, etc.), then most likely they will fail to develop a plan that inspires them to write you a check.

For over 20 years, Growthink’s business plan consulting services have helped thousands of new and established businesses raise billions of dollars and build successful organizations. We hope to have the opportunity to speak with you about our business plan services and help you realize your succeed.

Our Business Plan Consulting Methodology

Our business planning and consulting team has developed thousands of custom business plans for clients in all types of industries. During this time, we have developed proprietary methodologies to ensure our clients receive high-quality, fully customized business plans every time.

The Growthink methodology includes five phases which are designed to maximize quality and client satisfaction.

  1. Management Interviews: In this first phase, we collect and document your “verbal” growth plan, including your vision, key accomplishments to date, challenges and opportunities, business objectives and goals, and growth strategies. In this phase we also identify and refine key research questions, and work to define and communicate an effective “story” for the business plan. Your “story” is what’s going to appeal to investors and lenders.
  2. Strategic Market Research: In this phase, we size the relevant market place, analyze competitors, profile existing and prospective customer groups, and perform our due diligence to identify opportunities to grow your own business. Growthink also conducts “benchmarking research” — this involves identifying other companies that have succeeded and/or failed with similar businesses and/or initiatives.
  3. Draft Plan & Financial Modeling: Next, we provide a draft of your business plan. This will include the full business plan including the following sections:
    1. Executive Summary
    2. Company Analysis
    3. Customer and Market Analyses
    4. Industry and Competitive Analyses
    5. Development, Operations and Marketing Plans
    6. Management Team
    7. Appendix

    We will also deliver your complete financial model at this time, including the financial projections.

  4. Review and Revise: In this phase, we review the draft plan with you and discuss the focus, wording, and flow of the document. We incorporate any necessary revisions and refinements, and prepare the revised plan.
  5. Package and Finalize: The final stage involves creating a clean, professional document, with graphical enhancements, that is copy-edited, formatted, and ready to be presented to stakeholders and investors.

Business Plan Consulting FAQs

A business plan consultant helps small business owners, entrepreneurs, start-ups, and established businesses develop business plans that will help them raise bank loans, equity funding and other forms of funding for their businesses. A quality business plan advisor will also ensure the business’ growth strategy is solid. We are the industry experts in helping many entrepreneurs, business owners, and executives create professional business plans that are well thought out to point your business in the right direction and powerful tools to convince potential investors to fund your project or lend you money.

Every business is unique, so there’s no cookie-cutter business plan. Every business owner has different strengths and weaknesses they bring to the table. We want our clients to get the most out of their business plan by solving problems, leveraging strengths, and highlighting new business opportunities for growth – all while taking it one step at a time.

Growthink starts with what’s important to you: What are your current challenges? What do you hope this business will achieve? Our business planning advisors are there to help make your vision a reality – whether through helping improve your day-to-day operations or providing the strategic planning necessary for companies on an upwards trajectory. Whatever stage you’re at in your company’s life cycle, our business plan consulting firm can help judge the needs of your business and provide solutions based on our years of experience working with companies in a variety of industries.
