A call center business plan is way ahead of 99% of all others in one strong aspect: Bankers WANT to believe it will work.
Your business can offer something that every single community in the country wants: jobs. Decent jobs. Jobs that draw on the skills of current residents. And in big numbers.
In vast reaches of the country, your company alone could pull communities out of the doldrums and rejuvenate once thriving areas. As we said, banks WANT to believe your business will work.
So Job No. 1 is simply to choose your location right. Find an area with challenging employment numbers, one that has people eager to work, one that will be glad to offer tax incentives to give your business an assist.
Go in with a call center business plan focusing on employment, employment, employment.
Talk with the mayor, city council, and anyone else who give you half an hour. Outline what you want to do and how it will benefit this area.
My guess is that somewhere along the way in those conversations, the bank president will turn up as someone's brother-in-law. Others will certainly know of buildings that you lease for next to nothing.
The business plan that you present to the banker will be different than the one you gave to others in the community. This one will encompass all the elements of a standard business plan: the financials, the marketing information, the key people, etc.
But it will go a step further. It will outline why you have chosen this specific community for your business. And again it will emphasize employment.
While your background, credibility, etc., do need to check out, don't be surprised to discover that local banks can bend a few rules when the business will generate jobs for their neighbors.
Here is where to start:
Along with the workbook (#1) and the template (#2), you will also discover basic financial worksheets for your use. The end product will be a call center business plan focused on your business potential.
Do factor into your projections that virtually all of your communications equipment, and a lot of other equipment, can be leased. Have an accountant run the numbers to determine just how much should be leased, and on what terms. Look to your business associations for leasing companies that work in your field.
Be prepared, too, to talk with local people about partnerships and other involvement. If you really don't want co-owners, set up a strong Advisory Board comprised of prominent local people. An Advisory Board has no real authority, but it sure looks good in a business plan.
All in all, your call center business plan has strength that few can match. We wish you every success.
A winner is someone who recognizes his God given talents, works his
tail off to develop them into skills, and uses those skills to
accomplish his goals.
