Creating a Business Plan for a Mobile Home Manufacturers' Equipment & Parts Business

Assess Competitors

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

Once you've finished assessing the competion, the next step is to learn from folks who are already in business. It's very unlikely that the local competition will talk to you. It'd be crazy for them to teach you the business.

Fortunately, somebody who runs a mobile home manufacturers' equipment and parts business in another town may be more than happy to give you a few tips, given that you don't compete with them in their area. In that case, the business owner may be more than happy to discuss the industry with you.
