Creating a Business Plan for a Brass & Brass Products Wholesale & Manufacturers Business

A common mistake for a new business owner is to not create a business plan.

The key benefit of writing a business plan is that it defines the game plan. If you don't have a business plan, your leadership will be handicapped, limiting your brass and brass products wholesale and manufacturers business's ability to succeed long-term.

Start by defining your business mission. The process of writing a mission statement doesn't have to be complicated. From there, you can begin to build on it with goals, budget estimates, marketing plans and other elements that are typically found in startup business plans.

Review Competitors

Long before you open a brass and brass products wholesale and manufacturers business in your town, it's a smart move to see how many competitors you have. Use the link below to generate a list of competitors in your city. After clicking on the link, type in your city, state and zip code to get a list of brass and brass products wholesale and manufacturers businesses near you.

How tough is the competition in the market you are considering? If the competition is too tough, you may need to think about starting the business in a different area or even start a completely different business instead.

Studying the Market

If you are seriously contemplating launching a brass and brass products wholesale and manufacturers business, it's a wise move to learn from folks who are already in business. It's very unlikely that the local competition will talk to you. What's in it for them?

However, an entrepreneur who owns a brass and brass products wholesale and manufacturers business in a different city will be much more likely to talk with you, provided that you won't be directly competing with them. In that case, the business owner may be more than happy to discuss the industry with you. It can take a while to find an entrepreneur who is willing to talk, but it's well worth the effort.
