Today's Top TipOnline business plan scams are alive and doing very well. There's even a new wrinkle: the "crowd funding". Trust me, no one makes money but the promoters in this scheme.

Your custom business plan template will make your business proposal soar!
When you want that extra spark,
... when you want to capture the investor's attention,
. look for a custom business plan template.
Did you know that only about 5% of the proposals submitted get the "go" sign? In venture-speak that means, "Yes, we will look at it further." All the rest are immediate rejects. (Well, we can't accuse venture capitalists of being indecisive.)
And it's not just venture capital firms. Banks are the same way. Sure, they go through all the motions of having you fill out forms, and submitting it all. But in the end, very very few proposals ever get funded.
Yes, sometimes the business has innate flaws, things that throw up red flags, like putting a pizza parlor in the middle of nowhere. But I don't think you are planning to put up a pizza parlor in the middle of nowhere.
We have worked with thousands of small business people. And we can tell you definitely that if you are reading this, you are serious about getting your business operating, and doing it right. My guess is, too, that you've already done a lot of background research on your project.
That absolutely places you head and shoulders above the rest.
So let's do it right.
Give yourself every advantage possible with your custom business plan template.
|Command attention from the very first page|
|Entice the investor to want to know more|
|Include everything that is needed, and exclude everything else|
|Demonstrate that you are an entrepreneur to be taken seriously|
|Integrate charts and financials for easy accessibility|
|Discover how much money is truly needed as "seed money"|
|Effectively present the one element that investors look at first (hint: it's NOT the financials)|
|Spotlight your marketing plan with strength and conviction|
From the very beginning, place yourself in a position to negotiate the best terms possible. Interest rates are not all equal -- being in a position to negotiate even a 1/4% lower rate could save you hundreds or thousands of dollars!
And save money by getting a custom plan for a pittance...
The best business plans are usually those you write yourself. This is great if you've got a lot of experience as a professional business plan writer.
