Now, before I tell you all the details of this special offer...

I first want you to know why having the right business plan is so crucial to your success...

Actually, I want you to know about...

The Harsh Reality of Business Plans

You see, the unfortunate fact is that most business plans fail!

I know that’s a pretty bold statement...

So let me explain...

There are 2 main reasons why people create business plans:

  1. To raise money from investors or lenders
  2. To develop a successful business strategy and roadmap to grow your business

It’s Hard To Raise Money Today

Now, in terms of raising money, consider these statistics...

  • According to the National Venture Capital Association, venture capitalists fund less than 1% of business plans they see!
  • According to the Center for Venture Research at the University of New Hampshire, angel investors fund only 11% of business plans they see!

And...

  • According to the United States Small Business Administration, the number of SBA loans granted has decreased by 56% over the past 3 years!

As you can see, the vast majority of companies fail to raise money, and recently...

Now, the other reason entrepreneurs create business plans is to develop a successful business strategy...

And Most New Businesses Fail...

And unfortunately, most businesses are failing here too...

A study done by Inc. magazine and the National Business Incubator Association (NBIA) revealed that 80% of new businesses fail within the first 5 years...

And according to Dun & Bradstreet, 91% of businesses fail within 10 years...

...and according to statistics from the US Census:

Only 3.9% of businesses make it to $1 million in revenues

Only 0.6% of businesses make it to $5 million in revenues

As you can see...

The Odds Are Stacked Against You...

Most entrepreneurs and business owners fail to raise money...

Most businesses die in the startup phase...

And most business owners never reach the $1 million mark... which means they never earn the money and never enjoy the lifestyle they dreamed about when they started their businesses...

But don’t worry, I do have some good news for you today...

And although MOST businesses fail to survive and grow, there are tons of companies that grow into profitable multi-million dollar businesses...

I’m going to share some of these successful case studies with you now...

And I’ll reveal what it really takes to create a successful business plan...

The 5 Key Attributes of
Successful Business Plans

Well, here at Growthink, we’ve identified 5 key attributes of every successful business plan...

Key Attribute #1. Start At The End

All successful business plans have practical Action Plans... and these Action Plans are developed from “reverse engineering” success....

As I explain in my best-selling book about business planning...

When you’re creating your business plan, you first must decide where you’d like to be in 5 years...

  • Ask yourself these questions:
  • What will your organization look like in 5 years?
  • What will your revenues be?
  • What will your profits be?
  • How many products and/or services will you have?
  • How big will your staff be?
  • How many locations will you operate?

And then...

Once you develop this vision of success, you need to “reverse engineer” it...

That is, figure out all the milestones you’ll need to accomplish to get there.

This is how you create an action plan that allows you to convert your dream of success into reality.

For example...

Our client Integreon came to us with a team of just 4 employees, but with the vision of becoming The World’s Largest business process outsourcing firm (or “BPO” firm).

So Growthink reverse-engineered that vision....

We developed an HR strategy so they could seamlessly incorporate new hires every month...

We created monthly and quarterly operational goals....

We assessed the services they would need to offer to expand the company and reach a greater customer base...

We developed financial projections and metrics to guide the company... and so on...

And the result?

Since working with Growthink... Integreon has grown from 4 to over 2,000 employees, has raised over $150 million in outside funding, and is now one of the largest BPO firms in the world!

Key Attribute #2. The Right
Overall Value Proposition

At the end of the day, successful companies only need to do ONE thing really well...and that is, they must offer products and services that customers actually want.

No matter how good your product, service or technology, if you’re not solving a “burning need,” you’ll fail.

Take PayPal for example...

PayPal’s initial business plan called for using their technology to allow one Palm Pilot to pay another.

This was NOT a burning customer need... and this mis-step almost bankrupted the young company...

It was only when PayPal focused on the “burning need” of secure online payments that the company took off...

And the rest is history: PayPal sold to eBay for $1.5 Billion.

Likewise when Paramount Parks, the international operator of theme parks and attractions, wanted to enter the Japanese market, they contacted my company, Growthink...

We conducted market research, and we were able to help Paramount Parks create a business strategy that satisfied exactly what their customers in Japan were looking for.

Key Attribute #3.
The Right Business Model

The third key attribute shared by successful business plans is that they have the right business model...

Choosing the right business model for your company is critical to its success.

In fact... According to a research study from MIT’s Sloan School of Management...

...your choice of a business model is a better predictor of your future financial performance than the industry you choose to operate in!

For example, one business model is to offer something of value for free supported by advertising...

Another model is to offer a lot of value upfront at a low cost to lock customers in for monthly membership or subscription fees.

And the list of types of business models goes on and on...

So, it is critically important that you think through all the possible business model options and choose the one that will best ensure your success...

Here’s an example...

When Neezz.com came to Growthink to develop a business plan for its social network-based online classified advertising platform, we had to figure out the right business model...

We assessed all the various online and offline business models that could apply, and importantly developed financial projections to determine the financial implications of each...

And this allowed us to identify the optimum business model and to develop the right action plan for Neezz to follow...

As a result, Neezz was able to launch and grow its business and currently has over 200,000 active ads on its platform!

Key Attribute #4.
The Right Marketing Strategy

The fourth key attribute shared by successful business plans is that they include the right marketing strategy...

Most business plans only include a very basic marketing & sales plan.

Often, they simply say they’ll promote the company via the usual places (like radio, TV, print, online), and hire more sales people...

On the other hand...

Successful companies create well-thought-out and comprehensive marketing strategies...

For example, our client Dakim came to us with a product designed to slow the progression of Alzheimer’s Disease...

Dakim’s goal was to sell the product to elderly consumers throughout the world.

However, in our strategy discussions, we determined that the best strategy was to first target the nursing home industry...

Nursing homes would be more cost-effective to target, and would generate revenues and credibility which we could leverage later when attacking the consumer market...

Furthermore, we developed a sales and marketing plan including trade show exhibits, direct sales, direct mail and trade journal advertising among others...

What was the result of this marketing strategy?

Dakim raised over $10 million in equity from investors who bought into their story and strategy...

Dakim now has products in thousands of nursing homes...

...and more recently has launched sales to individual elderly consumers via infomercials...

In other words, the marketing strategy has been a huge success!

Key Attribute #5.
Communicate Brilliantly

Finally, successful business plans get everybody (investors, team members, advisors) fired up about the company’s vision and potential.

Simply put, the greatest business strategies and action plans in the world are useless if they are not effectively communicated to the key parties.

And this is where most business plans break down...

In mediocre business plans, the author sees the business plan as a “data dump” of the strategy and action plan.

But that’s not going to get investors excited. Instead, you need to take a different approach...

Instead, you need to realize that your business plan is really a marketing document.

And who are you marketing to with your business plan? Chances are, you need to persuade one or more of the following...

  • Investors or lenders who may want to fund you
  • Employees to get them to buy into your vision and implement your action plans
  • Partners, distributors and key customers to do business with you
  • New management hires to get them excited about your business...

Here’s an example...

Years ago, I had a client called XCom Wireless – and they had a big challenge when it came to communicating their business plan.

XCom is in the “RF MEMS” technology industry... So, can you guess what the issue was?

Virtually no one has ever heard of RF MEMS!

It stands for radio frequency microelectromechanical systems.

But when you say that, you get blank stares from most folks...

So, we figured out a way to position the company in a much more exciting way in the business plan...

We did this focusing on the benefits and potential uses of the technology, instead of all the technical jargon.

And what was the result?

XCom Wireless raised more than $3 million from investors!

The 5 Keys To
A Successful Business Plan

To recap, here are the 5 keys to a successful business plan:

  1. “Start At The End”
  2. The Right Value Proposition
  3. The Right Business Model
  4. The Right Marketing Strategy
  5. Communicate Brilliantly

To sum it up, if you don’t include these 5 attributes in your business plan, the odds are stacked against you... but when your business plan has all 5 of these key attributes, you dramatically improve your chances for success...

So to help ensure you succeed, I’m offering to have my team of experts develop your business plan for you.

And that’s what our Professional Business Plan Delivered service is all about...
