After reading Forbeâ€™s article today titled 10 Startups Changing the World And What We Can Learn From Them, I started exploring their #9 startup called DocStoc.com. This site offers documents both free and through their monthly payment plan. I discovered one document in particular and thought Iâ€™d share on Puzzle Marketer. The document is called The One Day Business Plan Worksheet.
1) DocStoc.com offers marketers a great channel to distribute your marketing material or product information. Post your whitepapers, your research, and other content where an active base of users is participating. This is a great lead generation tactic that could get your more eyeballs and if your content is properly branded, sales will follow.
2) The One Day Business Plan Worksheet is a great document. Whether youâ€™re a small business entrepreneur or a big business senior executive, this worksheet will help you get your ideas to paper and flush out what your next idea could be. Itâ€™s not groundbreaking but itâ€™s simple and elegant.
I found another and possibly primary source at The Small Business Town Network, also includes an example and a link to download.
THE One Day Business Planâ„˘ can be used to summarize your business proposition when time is of essence. It also provides an excellent first step to getting your thoughts organized — a suitable road map for a more comprehensive plan. You can also use this mini-plan to pitch your business idea to potential investors or partners, especially those who donâ€™t have time to read a hefty 30 page proposal.
Below is a sample of the document with options to download it.
