Best Practices: Business Plans for Used Pianos Businesses

A great business plan will lay a strong foundation for growth in your startup used pianos business.

Business plans address a wide range of issues, including startup financials. Not surprisingly, lenders immediately turn to the financial section and use the accuracy of your forecasts to gauge the value of other parts of the plan.

As a result, we strongly recommend educating yourself in business plan financial basics before finalizing your business plan's financial chapter.

Review Competitors

Well in advance of opening a used pianos business in your town, it's worthwhile to see how many competitors you have. Use the 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 used pianos businesses near you.

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, be sure to learn from folks who are already in business. If you think your local competitors will give you advice, you're being overoptimistic. Why would they want to educate a future competitor?

Fortunately, somebody who runs a used pianos business outside of your community may be willing to share their entrepreneurial wisdom with you, as long as they don't view you as a competitive threat. Many business owners are happy to give advice to new entrepreneurs It can take a while to find an entrepreneur who is willing to talk, but it's well worth the effort.

Where would you find somebody who runs a used pianos business who is willing to advise you because you live in different cities?

It's easy. Here's a link you can use to find a mentor outside of your area.

Financial Benefits of Buying a Used Pianos Business

You've invested a lot of time and effort in planning your startup. But here's something you probably don't know: Startup used pianos businesses consistently fail to achieve the financial performance of acquired used pianos businesses.

Financial risk management requires you to at least consider the possibility of setting your startup plans aside to explore acquisition opportunities. At a minimum, it's worth exploring the financial benefits of buying a business to get an established customer base.

An acquired business also has documented assets and earnings - a big advantage with lenders and investors.

Is Franchising the Right Option?

You should know that your odds of doing well with your venture are much better when you franchise instead of doing it all on your own.

Prior to starting a used pianos business, you would be wise to check out whether there are good franchise opportunities available that might increase your chances of success.
