Our Business Plan Writing Methodology

Our Los Angeles business plan writing 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 top-quality 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, our professional business plan writer will collect and document your “verbal” growth plan, including your vision, key accomplishments to date, challenges and opportunities, business objectives and goals, growth strategies, and any intentions to raise capital. 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 whether in Los Angeles, a specific region, or nationwide, 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 businesses that have succeeded and/or failed with similar business ideas and/or initiatives.
    3. Draft Business Plan & Financial Models: Next, we provide a draft of your customized business plan needed to help you reach your business goals. This will include a detailed plan including the following sections:
      1. Executive Summary
      2. Company Description
      3. Customer Analysis
      4. Industry Analysis
      5. Competitive Analysis
      6. Development, Operations, and Marketing Plans
      7. Management Team
      8. 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 business plan with you and discuss the focus, wording, and flow of the document. Our business plan writers will 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.

Los Angeles Business Plan Writers & Consultants FAQs

A business plan consultant is an individual who has professional experience in writing comprehensive business plans. A business plan consultant can either be a current or former entrepreneur, banker, accountant, attorney, management consultant, or even someone with an MBA who has helped entrepreneurs write business plans before. Business plan writers are often hired by companies of all sizes that need professional help in creating their company's initial or updated business plan prior to seeking bank funding or providing their business plan to investors.

Creating a business plan is not something that can be done in one day, or even in one weekend. In fact, it takes about three to six months on average to conduct proper market research and write a comprehensive business plan for a small company. For larger businesses, it can take months to complete the necessary research and write a truly comprehensive business plan. Business owners and entrepreneurs should seek the services of a business plan writer who is experienced and qualified in creating business plans for other businesses like their own so that the final product comes out as accurate, polished, and professional as possible.

Also, if your goal is to close more deals by selling better with a professional quality business plan, then you will probably need the assistance of a business consultant who has both the industry knowledge and writing skills to help you build your company's business plan.

Business plan writers and consultants vary in their fees, and they may charge different fees depending on the type of company that is looking to hire them. Some business plan writers will charge a flat fee for writing a business plan from scratch, while others may charge by the hour. Others may even offer an initial package price for developing your business plan.

In general, the cost for a quality business plan will range from $5,000 to $20,000 for a small company and upwards of $50,000+ for larger businesses. And like most things in business, you get what you pay for.

A good business plan consultant should be able to give you a firm quote on his or her business plan writing services, including their fee structure, before they begin working on your business plan.

The best way to find a business plan consultant is by networking with other entrepreneurs, hiring firms, and private investors in your area. You want to make sure that the one you seek business plan writing services from is extremely knowledgeable of your type of company, industry or sector, and that they have a long track record of success in business plan consulting. You also want to make sure that the consultant has a good reputation, so be sure to check out their online reviews.

A quality business plan writer or consultant can help you:

  • Increase your chances of securing a bank loan or other types of capital by making your business plan more professional.
  • Strengthen your company’s credibility in the eyes of investors and potential clients.
  • Expand on the details for certain sections of your business plan, such as the marketing plan and/or financial projections.
  • Decrease the stress of creating a business plan by letting an expert do it for you.
  • Save you time by doing the necessary competitor and market research for you.
  • Establish a professional relationship that can lead to future business by networking with other professionals in your area of expertise.
