Our business plan consultant has found that small business owners in Chicago, IL., area often need assistance with horizontal growth.  Horizontal growth is when a small business owner decides to eliminate the middleman and perform more of their operational functions themselves.

An excellent example of this would be when a small business owner decides to hire an accounting staff.  When doing this, the company no longer needs its subcontracted accountant.  Decisions relating to horizontal growth should be made only after careful strategic planning is done related to the benefits and cost of the actions.  For example, some business owners tend to take on an accounting department before the costs justify the move.  With the help of our business plan writer and consultant, we can help make financial models to show the point at which making this change is necessitated.  This is just one of the many areas in which our business plan consultant can assist small business owners in the Chicago, Illinois, area.

Benefits from hiring a Business Plan Consultant

Our business plan consultants offer a multitude of benefits to our clients in the Chicago, Illinois, area. A significant business benefit that we offer would be assistance with vertical integration.  Vertical integration is one a small business owner starts or purchases a company that provides complimentary services.  An excellent example of this would be when a home repair company acquires a lawn service company.  Both organizations have client bases, and both firms neither workers to go to the customers’ homes.  From this, there are numerous overlapping costs and benefits of a merger.  However, a thorough financial analysis is needed.  With this said, make sure to contact one of our professional business plan consultants for assistance in devising financial models and business plans to determine optimal results from your conceived actions.

Also, some small business owners, especially in the Chicago area, struggle with including depreciation in their pro forma financial statements.  The difficulty with depreciation is that equipment, buildings, and other depreciable assets depreciate at different time frames.  To help mitigate this problem, our business plan writer has designed a financial model that allows for two separate depreciation schedules.  The structure enables business owners to better align their depreciable objectives and maximize profits based on the strategy.

As you can imagine, businesses are started by business owners looking for a return on their investment.  However, the return on investment expected by individual business owners varies depending on the industry, owner's expectations, and other factors.  To increase the likelihood that your return on investment expectations are exceeded, our financial projection consultant recommends the continued use of a customized financial model.  A customized financial model will allow you to put in various variables such as your sales price, cost of goods, and fixed costs into various sections of the model.  Once complete, a good financial model will then calculate your net profits for the month and/or year, as well as find important financial ratios for your company, such as return on investments.  For more help with creating a financial model, just contact our financial projection consultant.

Common Financial Statement and Financial Projection Questions.

“How do I compare my financial results with those of local competitors?”

Most business owners, especially in the Chicago area, based on research from our business plan consultant, periodically conduct competitor research.  This research may include googling competitors or even visiting their facilities.  However, very few business owners attempt to compare their financial information with public organizations in the same industry.  For example, a retail store clothing owner may seek out financial statements from public companies like JCPenney’s.  In this research, a business owner may use a concept called common sizing.  In common sizing, the business owner transforms a competitor's financial statement into percentages using revenues or total assets as a denominator.  Next, the business owner would follow the same practice with their own financial statements.  Once this is complete, a Chicago area business owner can then compare line item percentages with larger competitors to determine whether their company is running on the same plane of efficiency as large operators.

Common Questions for Business Plan Consultant.

Our business plan consultant is often asked common questions concerning a professionally written business plan.  Here are some of the more popular questions asked.

“What is the sense of mission marketing?”

Sense of mission marketing is when a business owner attempts to advertise the social mission of an organization as compared to its products and services.  In other words, the business is trying to educate customers as to the social benefits of using their products or services instead of trying to sell the actual items. An advantage of this practice is that business owners can attract like-minded or valued customers.  A challenge with this practice is that it may alienate other demographics, which would lead to a reduced broad appeal for the organization.  With the help of our business plan consultant, we may be able to work with Chicago area business owners to devise a sense of mission marketing that helps promote the company’s social mission, while mitigating the alienation effect.
