However, it can be a real challenge to create a compelling business plan from scratch... Where do you start? It can seem overwhelming to a small business or startup, when there are so many variables: industry (horizontal, vertical), competitors, product approach (software or service, free or licensed, etc), pricing, distribution strategy... the considerations seem to go on forever. And naturally, no one likes to reinvent the wheel.
Having the right tools is the key to developing a professional, concise and compelling plan. Here is my selection of some of the most valuable business plan templates and tools to use to put together your software development business plan.
TemplateZONE's OfficeReady Business Plan
Templates give you a complete toolset to create a winning business plan. It includes templates, sample business plans, spreadsheet tools and an eBook on how to write a business plan.
This NoLo guide on How to Write a Business Plan is a real time saver. I've personally used a number of NoLo guides, and always found them extremely valuable with actionable information not padded with fluff.
If you're concerned with having the right legalese in place, then FindLegalForms.com offers Premium Legal Forms
including a very reasonable Business Plan Forms Package with not only a business plan template, but also a confidentiality agreement (to use with those partners you want to share your business plan with) and a number of worksheets to put together the business plan. (Search their Legal Forms page
for "Business Plan Forms Combo Package" and you will find it).
We also have a sample business plan which you can use as a starting point for your software business planning which is available free. Or if you would prefer it in Microsoft Word version, send an email requesting the sample business plan to firstname.lastname@example.org.
To get the most out of these templates, follow the tips and advice in our sections on software business models, and tips for developing the strategic plan for your business.
Finally, if you find you need additional assistance with adapting this business plan to your business, or just need a second set of eyes to take a look over it and provide some recommendations, we do provide very reasonable fixed price and custom consulting services on software/services business planning.
