1.Write a business plan with a complete financial and marketing plan.
2.Your marketing strategy should be built around your strengths, your competitor's weaknesses and your customers' desires.

4.Allow at least two hours every week for thinking and planning. Do not allow anything to interfere with this time. You run the business. Don't let it run you.

Re: How to create a sound business plan

a business plan designed to inform employees of the company's long-term strategic intents may be promulgated differently from one intended to appeal to bank lenders and venture capitalists.

Regardless of format, there are four major phases to business planning:

1. Determine the current state of the industry and the market (Situation Analysis). Identify SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats).
2. Set forth a strategic vision for the company (make sure it aligns with your success measurements).
3. Determine the specific tactics within each of the company's functional elements (R&D, Marketing, Production, and Finance) that you believe will best support the strategic vision.
4. Monitor progress by establishing benchmarks and conducting competitor analysis comparisons.

Re: How to create a sound business plan

Keep in mind that there is not one specific format that you should use, or one best way to lay out your business plan. However, there are some steps you can take to make the process go a little more smoothly; we've listed what we think is the easiest method, below.

Step 1: Making the Commitment - be sure that you desire to work for yourself is truly greater than you desire to work for someone else.

Step 2: Analyze yourself - list your strengths and weaknesses. Determine how you can build off your strengths, and improve on your weaknesses. Remember, this can be a daunting task because you may have to own up to a few shortcomings you're not prepared to recognize!

Step 3: Choose a Product or Service - this sounds silly, but just because you think you know what business you want to be in, it doesn't mean your idea will be a profitable one. Take a look at the feasibility of your idea.

Step 4: Research Your Market - marketing research is crucial to the success of any business, large or small. The more you know about your potential market, the greater your chances of securing the customers you want, right out of the gate, and that means making a profit.

Step 5: Forecast Your Sales Revenue - after you take a look at the market your product is best suited for, estimate the percentage of that market that you think you will reasonably be able to take over. Take in to account the number of your competitors, their size, and the amount of market they already have. It is important to be realistic during this exercise.
