Business Planning

Planning in business is essential to success. When a company has a planning process and a plan to follow, its leaders and all staff are better equipped to prepare for the future. A business plan creates a focus for the company, uniting employees toward common goals. When everyone works together, it’s easier to manage time and resources, to position the company for growth.

Business planning is important no matter the size or stage of a company. Whether you are the Chief Executive of a FTSE100 company or a sole trader looking to open a café on the high street the implications of not having a plan can be catastrophic for your business.

Not only are business plans required to govern and assist business direction they are also important for many other reasons such as:

Unlike other business plan writers out there:

  • We do offer you a free consultation to gather the information to accurately quote you for the drafting work required

  • We don’t limit the pages, if we give you a price it's to get your business suitably represented for the purposes required and it doesn’t matter if that’s done in 7 pages of 44…

  • We don’t provide you with a price and then hit you with unexplained extras halfway through.

  • We don’t commit to short timescales to win your business we review the information you provide and give you an accurate timescale to write a draft the most accurate plan possible

  • We don’t use industry specific templates. Every plan is written from scratch and the content is driven by who your audience will be and the aspiration of the plan

We arrange a free no obligation consultation where we will listen to you and your aspirations and combine this with some targeting questioning designed to extract the relevant information from you. This information will allow us Razor to draft a truly bespoke plan that 100% satisfies your requirements.

Moreover, once we have drafted your business plan, we don’t just cut ties we will give you time to review and ask for amendments. Once you have the final draft in your hand we still don’t walk away, its likely you will be presenting this plan to an investor or a bank manager who may review and require amendments. We will be on hand to help you where needed to get your business plan accepted.

Razor always looks at two important elements before beginning any plan:

  • Who will the reader be?

  • What do you want their response to be?

For example, if you are interested in raising capital, investors will likely be your target audience. If you are interested in partnerships or joint ventures, your potential business partners will be your audience. Whoever this audience may be, focus on the key message you want them to receive in order to get the response you want.

The answers to these questions combined with your overall aims will dictate how the plan is written. Our approach is fit for purpose first time every time, there’s no generic drafting here!

If that wasn’t enough, with our huge range of services and expertise we can help you put into action your business plan, from creating a company logo and building a website to recruiting or managing current staff or drafting commercial agreements and negotiating with suppliers. Whatever your need we can help. Please see our About page to gain an insight into the reach of Razor Consulting.
