  • 1. Target Markets - describe your target market as specifically as possible. Many new business owners worry about losing potential customers and make the mistake of trying to be all things to all people. Don't make this mistake. Narrow your target market.

  • 2. USP - this is your Unique Selling Proposition. What is it that set you apart from your competitors? Note the word 'unique'. This needs to be something that nobody else is offering. For example, your USP can't be 'great service' because all your competitors would say the same thing and its therefore not unique. Even 'best service' is probably not unique. But what if you said "our service is so good that we guarantee your satisfaction or your money back". OK, now your getting there. The whole point of this is to stand out from the crowd and you do that by being unique. Include as many USP's as possible.

  • 5. Lead Generation - how will people get to know about your business? In the online world, this is also known as 'traffic'. There are generally 3 types of lead generation - Advertising, Referrals (or Word of Mouth) and Public Relations. Describe under each of these what you intend to do and what your call to action will be, eg buy now online, email us, call, etc.

  • 7. Objectives and Measurement - set out specific objectives for the next 3 months - include both tasks and targets

  • 8. Next Actions Steps - what are your next action steps
