OUR PROFESSIONAL BUSINESS SERVICES:
PROFESSIONAL BUSINESS AND FARMING PLAN WRITING SERVICES
Whether you trying to raise money for your business or are developing a plan for strategic growth, a solid business or farming plan is a key component to every successful business or farming operation.
BE CAREFUL OF CHEAP/LOW COST TYPE OF BUSINESS PLANS. YOU WILL NOT GET A COMPREHENSIVE BANKABLE OR PROFESSIONAL BUSINESS PLAN FOR A FEW THOUSAND RAND IRRESPECTIVE OF WHAT COMPETITORS CLAIM. A BUSINESS PLAN IS NOT COMPREHENSIVE IF IT DOES NOT PROVIDE ALL THE CRITICAL FACTORS THAT WILL DETERMINE THE BUSINESS SUCCESS AND WILL TAKE A LOT OF TIME TO COMPLETE. THEREFORE, YOU WILL PAY FOR TIME AND QUALITY. CHEAP PLANS – CHEAP RESULTS.
8 Common Business Plan Mistakes
1. Putting it off
Too many entrepreneurs/businesses make Business Plans only when they have no choice in the matter. Unless the bank or investors want a plan, there is no plan.
2. Cash Flow Casualness
Most people think in terms of profits instead of cash. When you imagine a new business, you should think of what it would cost to make the product, what you could sell it for, and what the profits per unit might be.
3. Idea Inflation
A new idea is harder to sell than an existing one, because people don’t understand a new idea and they often unsure if it will work. Plans don’t sell new ideas. A Business Plan, though necessary, is only a way to present vital information.
4. Fear and Dread
Doing a Business Plan although time consuming isn’t as hard as you might think. Help is always available if you don’t know how or don’t have the time to write one.
5. Spongy, Vague Goals
Leave out the vague and meaningful “babble” of business phrases (such as “being the best”) because they are simply hype.
6. One size fits all
Tailor your plan to its real business purpose. Business Plans can be different things: They can be detailed action plans, financial plans, farming plans, marketing plans, and even personnel plans. They can be used to start a business, or just run a business better.
7. Diluted Priorities
Remember, strategy is focus. A priority list with 3 items is focus. A priority list of 20 items is certainly not strategic, and rarely effective.
8. “Hockey stick” shaped growth projections
Sales grow slowly at first, but then shoot up boldly with huge growth rates as soon as “something” happens. Have projections that are conservative so you can defend them.

Professional Marketing & Sales Plans
Think of Marketing as getting people to know, like and trust you. Think of sales as helping them configure, choose, and pay for what you offer.
An explanation of the choice of the target market.
A summary of the main taglines, key selling points, and value proposition.
Discussion of media which almost has to be social media and content marketing these days, but used to be advertising, budgets, placement and so on.
Pricing is your most important marketing message.
Channels of distribution for physical products or websites, mobile marketing etc.
Promotion. It could include public relations, advertising, affiliate sites, price promotion, and events.
Some businesses need a specific sales plan more than others. If you are forecasting sales with a direct sales organization selling to larger companies, you should understand a direct sales force, reasonable expectations of leads, presentations, closes per month per sales person, pipeline dynamics related to decision time etc.

Franchising – Is this for me?
The franchise model has been called the greatest model ever invented. It allow people all over the world who want to own their own business to do just that.
What is a Franchise?
A franchise is a type of business that is owned and operated by individuals (franchisees) but that is branded and overseen by a much larger- usually national or multinational – company (The Franchisor).
How to become a Franchisee?
To become a franchisee, you need to pay an upfront franchisee fee. Paying the up- front franchise fee (and signing the franchise agreement) give’s you the right to use:
The franchisor’s name;
The business systems;
The Operational Manual;
All other proprietary material.
If you need funding to buy a franchise or expand one you will need a professional franchise business plan. We can provide you with a proper bankable and well-written franchise business plan and guidance.

Informative and Professional Business/ Company Profiles
You will find many variations and lengths for a Company/Business Profile. Some businesses my not have grown enough yet and have profiles that are just two -three pages long. On the other hand, some might include awards, certifications, and a large client portfolio, topping out at 30 pages. The bottom line with both situations, as well as those in between, is that a company profile is your business’s time to shine. You should prepare (or ask a professional consultant) a well-written document that is clear, concise, and correct.
We prepare and assist with Professional and well-written Business or Company Profiles as well as Capability Statements. Why not try us? Contact us – (27) 84 583 3143 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
A Feasibility study looks at the viability of an idea with the emphasis on identifying potential problems. It attempts to answer two main questions:
1. Will the idea work? and
2. Should you proceed with it?
A Feasibility study addresses things like where and how the business will operate. It provides in-depth details about the business to determine if and how it can succeed, and it serves as a valuable tool for developing a winning Business Plan.

3. Business Proposals.
A “Business Proposal” is generally a document you’d send to a prospective client, outlining the service you’re offering, and explaining why you’re the best person for the job. It’s a pitch by a business or individual to complete a specific job or project, to supply a service, or, in some instances , to be the vendor of a certain product.
A “Business Proposal” can be either solicited or unsolicited. With a solicited proposal, the prospective client will put out a request for proposals; with an unsolicited proposal, you are approaching a client in hopes of attracting their business, even though they did not explicity request a proposal. The three P’s you should address are 1. Problem Statement 2. Proposed solution and 3 Pricing.
A Business Proposal is not the same as a Business Plan.
4. Business Management.
