Business Plan Basics for Digital Phones Businesses
Startup entrepreneurs slave over the creation of their business plans, investing countless hours in the details of their startup strategy. But have you included any material about your industry?
Industry analyses are standard chapters in digital phones company business plans and are often required by lenders or investors. In most cases, industry analyses discuss the opportunities and threats that confront similar businesses throughout your industry.
Although it sounds complicated, most entrepreneurs can create an effective industry analysis section by simply steering clear of common industry analysis mistakes.
Investigate the Competition
Prior to launching a digital phones business in your town, it's essential to find out how strong the competition is. Try our link below to get a list of local competitors in your area.

If there's too much competition, it may be wise to consider starting the business in a less competitive marketplace.
Finding a Non-Competitive Business Mentor
Once you've finished assessing the competion, the next step is to learn as much as you can from somebody who is already in the business. Local competitors are not going to give you the time of day, mind you. It'd be crazy for them to teach you the business.
Fortunately, somebody who runs a digital phones business in a different city will be much more likely to talk with you, after they realize you reside far away from them and won't be stealing their local customers. In that case, the business owner may be more than happy to discuss the industry with you. Our estimate is that you may have to contact many business owners to find one who is willing to share his wisdom with you.
