A business plan allows you to head to a financial institution or family in an attempt to get money to assist you start your own cleaning firm.
This article is meant more to help you think about growing a business plan by getting to know what it entails broadly – for detailed wisdom on how to write a business plan for house cleaning services, start by reading what’s below, then by reading something more detailed.
The soundest way to learn a business plan method is to check out a “guide for idiots” or similar publication at your local library. This type of material is going to have details regarding each section I talk about below, and is maintained pretty up-to-date. There is probably no “idiot’s guide to writing a maid service plan”, but a general guide about how to make a business plan will work. Read through a guide which was published sometime last year. This gives the author the best chance to give you information about banks’ overall lending policies, which change a lot.
Budget your time when you write a business plan. Don’t spend a long time sweating about what are perfect cleaning business names and what ones sound lame. Spend more hours thinking about what is your targeted market and what is your sales campaign. This is a bare bones outline of what you can expect to need when you walk into the lobby of your local bank.
Executive Summary – Terse couple of paragraphs that provide the info WHO, WHAT, WHERE, and WHY. Don’t worry too much about including target market info unless it’s a super gimmicky type of a thing, say a cleaning firm for retired nurses.
Objectives – What is it you plan to do? Say you plan to clean houses, simple as that. Arrange your objectives into solid, simple, bullet-point topics. It might be obvious, for instance, first objective, make a business, second objective, find clients, third objective, design the system to be sustainable and profitable.
Market analysis – Research the market for house cleaning and eloquently describe what you find. Who are the people spending the most money on house cleaning? Where are their houses? How much will they shell out for the work? Study many groups of potential buyers. It’s important that you are methodical about the way you research, and talk about how you conducted the research. If you’ve been to college, draw on your experiences there. Higher education spends a lot of time giving you skills that make writing a business plan easy.
Advertising – Describe what you plan to use as advertising methods and how much these will cost you. Say you’ll attempt a bunch of different methods of cheap advertising before finding the most successful means and paying more to continue that campaign. Be thoughtful with how you’ll spend money- everything should be a recorded experiment. When you’re in business, record the advertising experiment findings as carefully and meticulously as you can possibly imagine.
Competition – Similar to how you conducted the advertising portion of your business plan, research and describe your findings. A bang-up competition section is indispensable to a working business plan. Who will you be competing against? Show the competition, show rates, competition’s location, and their selling points in a visual table. When in doubt, it’s best to use a tables or chart.
