This article will explain the ins and outs of becoming a freelance business plan writer in your home. You will help up small businesses create business plans that they will submit to venture capitalists, banks, and use for general operation of their business.
A business plan gives an entire synopsis of a business in one document. This document can be as small as 15 pages for a start-up home-based business, and can get into the hundreds of pages for business that require shareholders and worldwide distribution. I would suggest starting the home-based business category.
These plans should only take you a few hours to write once you have created templates for yourself and you have interviewed the client. You will need a computer for this business and enjoy working with other people.
There are many templates and software packages available, but the best method may to make each plan customized, once you have the basic questions answered. You clients will want to know that their money has gone to more than just filling in boxes of a software program.
You will establish clients through placing small ads in business magazines and through word of mouth. Most of your business will not be sent face-to-face, as your clients will be located all over the country.
People can go to your website, fill out a quick questionnaire about their business and give you contact information. You will decide if it is a plan you are comfortable writing and you will contact them at your own schedule.
