For an online business, a detailed and in depth business plan is usually not necessary unless you are trying to combine your online business with a traditional business. For most online business startups, the detail involved with planning a traditional business is not required. However, it would still be beneficial to you if most of the topics were still covered, even if only briefly. Having a written plan in front of you will help you to focus on important aspects of the business.
Fortunately, with my entrepreneurial background and experience writing business proposals, I was very familiar with answering such questions. Therefore, to save time, I decided to consolidate all of these questions into a universal format that could be used and/or adapted for any audience within the invention process.
Executive Summary: The first step involved in writing a business plan is the executive summary. Here, include everything that you would cover in a five minute interview.
Suggested Retail Price: Base the suggested retail price on comparable market prices and other relative assumptions and factors. For example, if the invention combines the task of two or more existing products on the market, provide the cost of using those products separately and then demonstrate how your invention is priced such that it saves the consumer time and money. A good example is a food processor. You would provide the cost of knives, cutting boards, and the time it takes to cut everything. Whereas your invention, the food processor, is priced less than all of those things combined, plus you have the added value of convenience and time savings.
