Starting a home business or blog from scratch with little to no experience can seem daunting. But rest assured it’s not as hard as it sounds. Using a free blog plan template allows you to outline your plans from start to finish and set your goals straight from day one.
When starting an online business, you have to think of all angles at once. Your target audience, what they want, what they need, how you’re going to find them, how you’re going to show them you’re the best solution to their problems, how you’re going to promote and market your business, and the list goes on.
So where should you start? My suggestion is that you start by following in others’ footsteps who have been successful. You can do this with my free blog plan template.
The Free Blog Plan Walks You Through:
- Drafting a mission statement and goals
- Planning a marketing strategy
- Researching your competitors
- Branding your blog
- Monetizing your blog
- Finalizing and launching
Five years ago I was afraid to start an online business (which later led to this blog you’re reading). But today, I see it for what it is. My business is me.
“Business” is such a scary word, but in reality, a business is simply an entity that exists for the purpose of earning a profit. That entity is you.
So in the end, whether you start as a sole proprietor or DBA (“doing business as”), an LLC (Limited Liability Company) or go straight to INC (Incorporation), it all has to start somewhere – and that somewhere is you.
*Legal notice: I am not a certified business consultant. You must check legal requirements to start a business in your State (if in the USA) or country.
Why Do You Need A Blog Plan?
Even if you’ve just finished your 1st year in business, you still need to backtrack and create a blog plan. It’s so important to map the plan you have for your online business.
From mission and goals to promotional methods, you must understand that a proper blog plan can help you overcome common struggles.
So let’s get you started on your best year yet and go back to square one for a few days only. The refresher could end up pushing you into a new income bracket sooner than you hoped possible. Give it a try!
