Setting a business plan is not as easy as saying it. When putting your plan, determine your target market after asking why they would buy your product, and are they the best for your product and services. You might want to know as well what their benefits of dealing with you are. Therefore, if there is a certain point still ambiguous, take a moment, think about it and reconsider your plan until it becomes crystal-clear.
Throw a glance at the market and see what you can offer differently. For example, if there are several clothes shops in the market one with Italian clothes, other with Turkish … and you are willing to open your own clothes shop, think of ideas that make you shine among them, and be unique and competitive. Do your own researches and create an ambiance of your own. Believe in your own powers in order to do things successfully and never be a coward.
Learn from competitors
Remember that you cannot delete or swallow your competitors, and often a small business attracts a certain number of buyers. You are not there in order to fight in a war. Respect other businesses and work in a wise way. Don’t waste your time with jealousy and greed since the future is in front of you.
Look at your competitors and learn from them. Try to know on what do they focus and how can they still manage within competition. Discover what points have they ignored and ask the question why. If you find them wrong work on it, and if you find them right, learn from them.
Setting plans on a piece of paper is easy, but trying to apply it is not. No matter how strong you are, you still going to find out people exceeding you and your potentials. However, most importantly, compare yourself to a child that is learning how to walk, and falls every now and then before s/he is able to walk correctly. You are going to face obstacles when applying your plan, but try to make it stand out. Use new techniques, be up-to-date, meet the daily revolution and keep walking… never stop.
