Creating a Business Plan for a Building & House Moving Consultants Business
A common mistake for an entrepreneur is to launch your company without having written a business plan.
The key benefit of writing a business plan is that it defines the game plan. The absence of an effective business plan inevitably results in impulsive leadership, limiting your building and house moving consultants 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, it's time to initiate the hard work involved with writing the rest of your building and house moving consultants company's business plan.
Review the Competition
Prior to opening a building and house moving consultants business in your town, it's worthwhile to find out how you will fit in the competitive landscape. We've provided the link below to help you find competitors in your area. Complete the form by entering your city, state and zip code to get a list of building and house moving consultants businesses that are close by.
Is the established competition doing a good job? It's important to understand their strengths and weaknesses and think through how you'll stake up against those established businesses.
Learn from Others Who Are Already In This Space
As part of your due diligence on opening a building and house moving consultants business, it's a smart move to have a conversation with someone who is in the business. It's very unlikely that the local competition will talk to you. It'd be crazy for them to teach you the business.
On the other hand, an individual who has a building and house moving consultants business in another town may be willing to share their entrepreneurial wisdom with you, as long as they don't view you as a competitive threat. 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.

Franchising May Be a Better Way to Go
Young entrepreneurs are big on innovative marketing concepts, but fall short in the area of real world marketing experience.
Franchises offer a shortcut for achieving a robust market presence. A highly visible franchise gives startup owners the benefit of instant brand exposure, supported by regional or even national advertising campaigns.
