Free Business Plans: What You Can Learn

A free business plan is only useful if you can be sure of the intentions of the creator. If it was created by a business plan writing or consulting company which stakes its reputation on the quality of its business plans, you can be reasonably assured that it will serve as a good example. However, if the company providing the plan has no clear credentials or track record of success with their plans, consider yourself warned. In cases like that, the value of the plan may be no greater than the price you pay.


The outline of the free business plan you download will serve as a good guide for your own plan's structure. The plan will always begin with an executive summary and company overview, moving through the market analysis to the plan for implementation and finally to the financials. Staying close to this structure will serve you well and straying from it will do little good or perhaps hurt your plan's chances of success.


From a free online plan, you will derive a good sense of the simple and professional style your plan should maintain. Fonts should be consistent throughout, using a size and type that is easy to read. If a financial statement has text that is too small to read it must either be expanded onto two pages or trimmed in some way to enlarge it. Your plan should appear to have nothing to hide, unlike a cramped plan with tiny text.


Although you will have to write your own text for your plan, the depth of the detail in the text of the free plan you find will give you an idea of how to begin. The plan should be detailed enough that readers will learn not only what you intend to do but how you intend to do it. They should gain an understanding of how your specific business will work, going beyond explanations which are true of all similar businesses in your industry.

Without Growthink’s professional help, we would never have been able to create an effective business plan. Growthink not only did deep research on our business environment, but its representatives also listened to us and refined their analysis to include what we had found out through experience. We would recommend Growthink to any start-up business which does not have a professional business plan developer on staff!
