There are a number of reasons why we believe Business Plan Pro is the best option for writing a business plan as this article illustrates- The Easiest Way to Write a Business Plan.
Business plan templates are increasingly common, but they are often very basic, consisting of just a few headings and a spreadsheet. These business plan templates are typically Word Documents and do not offer any assistance with the business plan content. The result is often a poorly crafted business plan.
Here at Bplans our site contains a selection of free sample business plans as well as sample business plan outlines. One of the difficulties of relying too heavily on free sample business plans is that the quality of the business plan may be suspect. Our sample business plans on the other hand are designed to give you, the reader, the opportunity to read a sample plan so you can get a feel for the structure, the content etc as well as gaining an understanding of important concepts such as sales forecasting, executive summaries and cashflow.
In short, free business plan templates are no substitute for the real thing. A business plan is for your business idea, not some one else’s.
