Thinking about opening a pole and post frame buildings business? We tell you what you need to know to get started.

Elements of a Pole & Post Frame Buildings Company Business Plan

Looking for a one-size-fits-all business plan? Good luck. . . because it doesn't exist. However, the most effective business plans do address specific sound business plan elements:

  • Mission Statement A foundational statement of your company's direction and strategy.
  • Goals & Objectives A list of mile markers on your pole and post frame buildings business's road to success.
  • Financial, Marketing & Action Plans More detailed descriptions of how you will carry out your mission and achieve your pole and post frame buildings business's goals.

Investigate the Competition

Before you open a pole and post frame buildings business in your area, it's a good idea to find out what the competition looks like. Try our link below to find competitors in your area. After clicking on the link, type in your city, state and zip code to get a list of pole and post frame buildings businesses near you.

How are you going to successfully complete with existing firms? It's important that you never underestimate the competition.

Find Good Remote Business Advice

After you've evaluated your local competitors, it's essential that you talk to somebody who is already in the business. It's very unlikely that the local competition will talk to you. Why would they want to educate a future competitor?

However, an entrepreneur who owns a pole and post frame buildings business in another town can be a great learning resource for you, once they realize that you are not going to directly compete with them in their community. In fact, they are often very willing to share startup advice with you. In my experience, you may have to call ten business owners in order to find one who is willing to share his wisdom with you.

How do you go about finding an entrepreneur who is running a pole and post frame buildings business in another community?

Easy. Find them using our link below and start calling until you are successful.

Three Arguments for Buying a Pole & Post Frame Buildings Business

It's almost always preferable to buy a pole and post frame buildings business than to pursue a pole and post frame buildings business startup.

You'll want to conduct a comprehensive due diligence process, but here are three arguments why you should think about buying instead of a startup.

  • Initial Revenue. Startups struggle to bring in revenue right out of the gate while existing businesses usually have a steady stream of income.
  • Operational Efficiency. When you're shopping for a pole and post frame buildings business, be sure to look for ones that have all of the necessary processes and systems to ensure seamless operations from your first day of ownership.
  • Funding. In general, it's easier to finance an existing business than it is to fund a startup. While a startup only exists on paper (initially), established businesses have the benefit of historical earnings statements and tangible assets.

Franchising May Be a Better Way to Go

The probabilities on your making a success of your new business are higher if you go the franchising route and leverage their successful brand and track record.

Before opening a pole and post frame buildings business, you would be wise to determine whether purchasing a franchise might help you on your entrepreneurial journey.
