Like most business owners, you're probably busy. You know your business, and you know what you want to do with it, but you haven't had the time to create a formal business plan. It's just floating around in your head. A piece here. A part there. You've got a lot of ideas on how to make your business run smarter, and you use them to guide your decisions.
When you finally put a little love into it and get all those ideas into a document, it becomes so much more. It becomes your guiding light.
It doesn't matter whether you're just starting out, growing your business, looking to make changes, or you're right where you want to be. Every time you make a decision about your business, big or small, it's there to help you focus. That way, you can take the next step with confidence.
The Business Plan Center at wellsfargoworks.com will help you build and manage your complimentary business plan. And because we know you're busy, it breaks the whole process out into manageable modules and tracks your progress for you, so you can accomplish a bit at a time. In your own time.
Here's what you'll find. There's a comprehensive knowledge center covering a wide range of business aspects, from marketing to getting your financials in order — and everything in between. In it, you'll find articles, videos, Q&A, quizzes, and more. All related to helping you get a better understanding of the intricacies of running a business and to plan your plan.
And you don't have to do it all at once. The Business Plan Center keeps track of your progress. So the next time you have a few minutes, you can come back and pick up right where you left off.
There's also a Competitive Intelligence Tool that lets you see how you stack up against similar businesses in your area and across the U.S. You can compare a variety of metrics from revenue, employees, salary, and cost-effectiveness. It compares multiple points and gives you easy-to-understand map-based data. And with a large number of variables, you can get a simple overview or drill down as far as you'd like, giving you important details you can use to your advantage. You can also map exactly where all of your competition, potential customers, and suppliers are, so you can identify opportunities and find the best places to operate and advertise.
And when you're ready to build or modify your plan, there's the Business Plan Tool. Here, you can get all of your thoughts, ideas, and goals down on paper, in one place. It's an easy-to-use step-by-step online tool that formalizes your business goals, gives you an overview of your current and future financial outlook, and wraps everything up in a nice executive summary. That way, you can look at your business holistically and make smarter decisions based on your short-term and long-term goals.
Once you have your plan out of your head and onto the page, you'll finally be ready to take the next step with your business, whatever that step may be. Check it out and learn more at wellsfargoworks.com.
