Stop by any day for a new Top Tip of the Day
Internet marketing businesses, and internet marketing business plans, are only for the real pros. Learning how to market a business online can take years of experience, with not a few failures along the way. If you've made it and are ready to grow, this is the business plan for you.
First, this just isn't for beginners. This is a whole lot more than a marketing person who learned about the internet. Positioning a business for online success is a real skill, and there is a great deal of mystique surrounding it.
This mystique means that bankers are liable to look skeptically at your business plan as well. More than with most businesses, there are 3 thing you need to prove:
(1) You need to prove that YOU have been successful. List the companies that you have taken to success. Use real numbers wherever possible, with sales figures and/or online traffic numbers to back you up.
(2) You need to prove that you have BUSINESS waiting in the wings for you. Just being great isn't enough. Others have to know it too. If you've already got your own business, this is an easy matter. List your clients. If you are starting out, include commitment letters from as many companies as you can.
(3) You need to prove that you will be FINANCIALLY SUCCESSFUL, i.e., that you can pay back the loan. This is a whole different issue than having clients. Anyone can get clients if they don't charge much. But you will have some heavy salaries to pay for your specialists, and you need clients who can -- and will -- pay for that expertise.
All of which says that you definitely need a strong internet marketing business plan representing you. But you already knew that, didn't you.
On the plus side, most bankers certainly recognize by now that the online business world is the world of the future, and that internet marketing will continue to grow exponentially as a cornerstone in that world.
So get set to show them how you will make them money:
Your internet marketing business plan will help you finance your online marketing business.
