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.
Stop by any day for a new Top Tip of the Day
Just as your spa will reflect your unique style, so will your day spa business plan. Perhaps your spa focuses on day services, weight clinic, nail salon or skin care.
The important part is that YOU know where your spa is headed, and that you communicate that in your business plan.
Need we say it? You know it too. Where will your clients come from?
Spas are a luxury, with some more luxurious that others. But they all pull from disposable income. Add to that the fact that your build out will likely be pricier than most businesses, and the issue really pops out.
While there is no one solution for everyone, here are suggestions to ponder.
DEMOGRAPHICS. Really focus on the demographics of your area. Go down to your city or county planning department and make those folks your very best buddies. Find out what is happening, and what is planned, for your area. Talk demographics. Find out how many homes in the area have been foreclosed, and how many more will be. Get a map and map it out. And put all this info into the business plan. Even if the picture isn't rosy and pretty, put it into the business plan.
This, more than anything else, will prove to the banker that you have done your homework. If, after all this, you still want to go into business, he may be inclined to help.
MARKETING PLAN. This is the other Biggie in your day spa business plan. Now that you know where your clients are, how will you promote to them? And what will it cost?
It is relatively easy getting build out quotes from several contractors, and even finding one who can recommend ways to trim your budget. It is a whole lot harder figuring out how to market a business within a budget.
Need we mention that it really has to be great? Not just good. Great. Start here:

Wu Tan. "The architectural drawings, finding the staff, planning the services -- that was all the easy part. Getting the money was the hard part. I finally put together a real business plan, accented with artist renderings, and got a group of investors interested."
Lyla Valenjuela (Houston, TX). ""My partner Mario wrote a business plan. But I'm glad I studied yours. When I read Mario's, I found out that he left a lot of stuff out, like the option to lease a lot of equipment."
Paula Brigman-Hunter. "We've got everything tied down but the location. We couldn't have done it without you!"
