Business Plan Writers for Hire

Looking for someone to write your business plan? You’ve come to the right place! We understand that writing a business plan can be a time-consuming process for many entrepreneurs. Hiring a business plan consulting firm will allow you to more quickly and expertly create a custom business plan to point your company in the right direction. But before hiring someone, you should know the aspects of creating great business plans and the qualifications of the right business plan writer or firm.

Aspects of Creating a Good Business Plan

A good business plan requires the following 4 planning processes:  

Market Research

conduct market research before you write a plan You need to conduct considerable research in the following areas:
  • Customer Research: learning about who your target customers are and their wants and needs
  • Industry Research: identifying the size of your market and trends affecting it
  • Competitive Research: figuring out your direct and indirect competitors and the strengths and weaknesses of each
  • Financial Research: understanding realistic growth rates and costs (salaries, etc.) so a realistic financial model can be created


business plans include specific details Armed with the market analysis, you need to create the optimal growth strategies. For example, if you identified an unmet customer need in your research, you should create strategies to capitalize on this opportunity.  

Financial Modeling

determine business model and project sales Your financial model or projections are perhaps the most important part of your business plan. Poorly reasoned financial models will dissuade most investors. Worse yet, if you’re financial projections call for too much or too little funding, it will cost you dearly.  

Business Plan Writing

write a business plan for raising capital The fourth aspect of a solid business plan is writing. While it’s important to be a good business writer, even more important is to understand the needs of the audience. For example, the world’s best writer probably hasn’t spent much time with venture capitalists. As a result, they have no idea what this audience wants, and would probably fail to write a professional business plan that appealed to them.

What is a Business Plan Writer?

Why Not Write Your Own Business Plan?

business idea and planning process While some companies can develop business plans on their own, most do not have time for this. Moreover, many business owners do not have the proper business writing skills to help convince their intended audience. For these reasons, business owners should hire a business plan writer. A professional business plan writer will:
  • Conduct market research for you
  • Work with you to create the best strategies to grow your business
  • Create your financial projections
  • Write your plan geared to your audience
With regards to your audience, it could range from yourself, your team, partners, banks, angel investors, venture capitalists, landlords, etc. In any of these cases, when hiring someone to write a business plan, make sure they have a working knowledge of the needs of your intended audience (e.g., investors, partners, employees) in order to write a plan that appeals to them. If you have expertise in each of these areas, a deep understanding of the needs of your audience, and 100 hours of spare time, then you may not need to hire a business plan writer. If not, keep reading…  

When to Hire a Business Plan Writer

pay for a writing service to save you time If you are lacking time, and don’t have significant expertise in the four areas listed above, consider hiring a business plan writer. The best business plan writers:
