How do I write a one page business plan?

3 min read

  • A summary. Write about one of the following.
  • This is the market analysis. Tell a couple of sentences about something.
  • The analysis was competitive. Do not write more than two or three sentences.
  • It is a strategy.
  • There are Products and Services.
  • Both marketing and sales.
  • The operations are going on.
  • Financials are related.

Writing a one-page plan requires you to think critically about your business and get right to the point of what you are doing.

It isn’t saying that you shouldn’t create a standard business plan, it is saying that prospective investors and partners can quickly understand your business idea. It will follow the same structure as a standard business plan but with certain aspects highlighted or shortened. Zero in on the area that will impress investors the most if you are writing a plan to seek investors.

If you need money to start, do you have an amazing team lined up to work with you? Talk to your investors about why they should buy into your operation. If you are revising your business plan for a new year, talk about three or four things you will do differently this year to drive revenues, deliver value for your audience, or otherwise improve profitability.

If you are writing an internal plan, make sure to focus on the situation that is most critical, needs the most attention or cries out for change. Which products and services are the most competitive to you?

There is a combination of positioning and competitive evaluation. There is no room for technical detail, but the point is to talk about what you are bringing to market that nobody else is.

If you are planning a multi-pronged approach, focus on the bread-and-butter effort that will drive the most results. You could be talking to a potential partner or investor about an operational need. When discussing financials with a potential investor, you need to keep this section simple in your single-page plan, but you will almost certainly have to go into far more than one page of detail.

If you don’t want to borrow from a bank, you probably won’t need a balance sheet. The best way to support the one-page plan is to have those elements in a backup document. It is a clear and concise way to get your audience to act, and to force yourself to think critically about the most important steps in starting your business. Our business concept is to opportunistically buy used boats that are clearly underpriced, clean them up and perform minor repairs, then resell them for a fair price.

We will focus on brand-name used outboard powerboats, especially smaller Boston Whalers, that we can confidently determine the fair market value for and resell quickly. Our target market is likely to be boaters who have previously owned an outboard powerboat and understand the premium value of a better built boat such as a Boston Whaler.

Official dealers of the boat brands are our primary competitors. These dealers charge a premium price for their used boats because they get them into top shape. We only focus on a few well-known and respected brands of used outboard powerboats. We will mostly advertise our boats online and in the classified section of the newspaper.

All boats will be displayed in the boatyard with “for sale” signs visible from the road. Most of the work will be done by Bob, with the exception of cleaning the boats, which will be done by hourly workers.

The repair work will be done in the old garage on the property or in the open yard. The course includes step-by-step video instructions, samples and fill-in-the-blank templates for both a one page business plan and a full length business plan.

Instructions, samples and templates are included for all financial statements and projections. Start-a-Business 101, How to Find a Business Idea and The Complete Guide to Digital Marketing are some popular courses.

They are stunning, represent a lot of critical thinking, and show each student their perspective.

Students are invited to think about a text and make a single page of sketch notes to represent the most important aspects. If you have students who are struggling with art, providing a clear template with instructions on what to do in each section can help reduce their anxiety. They will be less intimidated by art materials in the lesson if they have a plan to succeed.

Students will be able to see the results on the wall and use it as a menu for their next book choices. You can create groups with one student from each literature circle and let them present their own versions of what they’ve read to each other.

If you decide to try these one pager examples, you will be in for an engaging, creative, critical- thinking activity. You can get a free download of four one-pager templates with complete instructions by visiting my website.
