How do you write a small business plan?
Before you can write your business plan, you should have completed some essential business planning. Business plans are often upwards of 15-20+ pages, so you need to know detailed information about your business, the market, and how you plan to operate your business.
A business plan typically consists of these sections:
- Executive Summary: This will be the first thing people will read, so it needs to summarize your business perfectly. If you are seeking funding, it needs to outline exactly why you need the money.
- Table of Contents: Give yourself and your readers a quick reference to jump to specific sections of your plan.
- Business Overview: Here, you will provide more detail about your “why” for doing business and outlining your vision, mission, core values, business goals, and objectives.
- Market Analysis: To lunch a viable, profitable business, you need to ensure you have a market for your products or services. This section will share your research into market trends and competitors.
- Products and Pricing: Anything you plan to sell or offer should be detailed here, as well as pricing information. It should also include a section about what makes your company or offerings unique.
- Sales and Marketing: Here, you will provide information about how and where you will be marketing your company and your sales process.
- Operational Plan: This section outlines operational information, a list of equipment and inventory, and a business risk analysis.
- Management Team: Use this section to talk about the key roles and personnel in your business and any staff you will be hiring.
- Financial Plan: Include spreadsheets and business calculations in this section.
You need a custom business plan (not one out-of-the-box)
You can use a business plan template to write your business plan, but they’re too generic and need to be customized for your unique business. When pitching your business to banks, investors, or for loans and grants, those evaluating your application can tell when you’ve used a generic template for your plan. They’ve seen them every day.
You want your business plan to stand out, so make sure it’s uniquely written for your business.
Who can help you write a business plan
You can write a business plan yourself, but it may be to your advantage to get a professional business plan writer to help. You’ve already got a lot on your plate to start up or manage the day-to-day operations of your business. Leave the writing to the professionals who can likely do it quicker than you could, given everything on your to-do list.
Professional business plan writers know how to write business plans correctly and include the required information. Good writers can:
- Write in a language to inform and convince lenders and banks to fund your business.
- Suggest new business or marketing strategies you may not have thought of.
- Advise you on incorporating inclusivity or sustainability into your business plan.
How do I find someone to write a small business plan?
There are many places to find good business plan writers for your small- to medium-sized business. Talk to other business owners about who wrote their business plans. Referrals are a great way to find good business plan writers.
Look for one that has relationships with key lenders and banks. They can make introductions for you to help increase your chances of funding success.
When shortlisting business plan writers, look for a company with an active blog and detailed website that shows off their expertise. It’s one thing to say you are a business plan writer; it’s another thing to have the experience and success as a business plan writer. Ask for proof or testimonials from satisfied customers.
You could also ask us at Bsbcon to write your business plan. Writing business plans that get funding are our specialty, and we’d be happy to help you through the process.

How much does a business plan cost?
Business plan writing services can vary depending on the purpose of the business plan and the experience of the writer and business consultants in the company. You can get sample templates anywhere online for free, but you’ll likely need to do additional work to make them suitable for your business.
You can buy more niched business plan templates. Still, unless you know how to customize them and include any additional information your specific loan program is requesting, it’s not often a good investment.
Costs will vary depending on how much information you can provide the writer. If you have a detailed market analysis already, that can help. Having previous versions of business plans can help the writer get a better overall picture of your business, which helps them write better for you.
Otherwise, to hire a professional business plan writer to increase your chances of funding and business success, you’re looking at $1900-$7900 for your business plan. This price is quite broad because it is very dependent on what services you require and if any business coaching or specialized knowledge is needed to write.

Business Plan Writers For Hire
If you’re looking to hire a business plan writer you have a few options.
First, you can simply search the keyword, “business plan” into Google and review the service providers that appear.
Next, you could have a search on Yelp. In our experience yelp business plan writers are decent, but certainly not the best writers available.
Business plan writers for hire in Canada is also a good option. Canadian business plan writers often service not only Canada, but the US and often Australia and the UK.
Finally, if you’re a part of a NPO you can simply search for non profit business plan writers and you should access a variety of professionals specializing in this niche.
Business Plan Writers Near Me
People looking for business plan writers close to home are often concerned about doing business remotely. It is the business plan writing company’s job to explain how easy and secure remote work can be.
The reality is, the best business plan writers probably don’t live within 20km’s or 12miles of you. However, business plan writing services can be provided from the other side of the world equally as effectively as in the same city as you.
The key is to ask a lot of questions right off the bat. These questions may include:
“How will the process work?”
“How can we be sure that we can trust your services?”
“How many clients have you worked with?”
“What is the success rating of your business plans?”
It should be obvious if the business plan consultant uses a template. In this case the final product will look like a cookie cutter, where a similar format has been replicated tens of times.
The best business plans available use a business plan outline, but are unique in the contents and financial projections developed.
Top Rated Business Plan Writers
At the end of the day, a top rated business plan writer will have a lot of 5 Star reviews and will not be afraid to show you them.
Business plan professional writers often have a list of accolades to showcase.
Our industry is still working on creating an authentication to provide you with a certified business plan writer. For now, the two tests are: experience and if they have an MBA.
The majority of top rated business plan writers will have an MBA, but it isn’t absolutely necessary. Some consultants rely purely on their own first hand experience in business and in developing business plan proposals for their clients.
Here is our list of top 10 business plan writers. Please don’t be surprised by #1:
Most of these business plan consulting firms have a few things in common: a strong web presence, experience, plenty of positive reviews, and wide area of service.
A top rated business plan writer will create a business plan for growth as effectively as a business plan for investment or a bank loan business plan.
Business Plan Writers Reviews
Different business plan writers will use a multitude of mediums to receive reviews. The average business plan consulting firm relies on Google reviews to build trust with their audience.
People want to see that business plan writers have a large volume of reviews, and a consistent flow of positive ones.
Reviews about business plan writers will primarily be found on Google My Business, Trustpilot, and Fiverr.
Although, many business plan consultants have a challenging time receiving reviews. Many clients intend on leaving positive reviews but often don’t get around to actually writing and posting one.
Affordable Business Plan Writers
The average small business that’s looking for a business plan will seek low cost business plan writers.
However, the old saying that, “you get what you pay for” applies to our industry as much as any other. Writing a business plan takes time, research, experience and engagement with the client.
Don’t be fooled by plan writers that offer their services for anything less than $1,200 USD. People who hire business plan writers for $1,200 USD or less should be concerned about the quality of the business plan they are provided.
A fixed priced business plan should be provided with a clear scope of work set forth ahead of time.
Low cost business plan writers will often promise a lot and argue that their competition over charges, but when the plan is complete you and your audience may be left disappointed.
In our opinion, affordable business plan writers will charge anywhere from $1,500 USD to $2,400 USD.
Freelance Business Plan Writers
Freelance business plan writers are hit and miss. When you find an exceptional freelance business plan writer be sure to keep their information, as they can be challenging to find.
Although many consulting firms are seeking business plan help, it can be hard to receive inquiries when advertising jobs for business plan writers.
If you want to become a business plan writer you can either get an MBA, begin writing in university and then start your own practice, or work for another. Another option is to utilize your experience in business, your financial knowledge, invest in a website and become a freelance business plan writer.
Business plan writers Fiverr is the number one place to access freelance writers. You may think you have hit the jackpot in finding exceptional talent for pennies on the dollar, but be cautioned.
The quality of work will be incomparable to a professional consulting firm that charges $1,600 USD to $2,400 USD for a plan.
Business Plan Writers for Small Businesses
Some of the leading business plan writers for small businesses are small business owners themselves.
Having an experienced business plan writer who owns their own practice can be extremely helpful as they have gone through many of the hurdles that you may be facing.
Small business plan writers understand the importance of positive cash flow, and the need to secure small business loans.
The business plan writer company of your choice should be small enough to understand your needs and customize the plan, yet large enough to have connections to small business programs that can help you with funding.
After having writer’s block when writing a business plan, people often look elsewhere and find a professional who can assist them in writing a small business plan.
Online Business Plan Writers
More and more business plan services are being provided online.
You will find a business plan writer for hire online by simply searching on Google and seeing ads or organic search results. In today’s world there are very few writers that work off purely a referral basis and lack any web presence.
When searching for online business plan writers be sure to review in detail the business plan writers contract. A professional plan writer will provide a detailed consulting agreement which covers the scope of work, pricing agreement, their responsibilities and your requirements as the client.
A sign of a business plan advisor online that should not be retained is one that engages in a working relationship with you without having you review and sign their written agreement.
The best business plan writers companies will walk you through their process prior to sending you a business plan writers contract, so that you understand how the process will work.
Business Plan Writers for Business Loan
When in need of a business plan for loan application you will not need to search far.
Business plan writers for loans specialize in crafting business plans that will be reviewed by business account managers at banks.
The two parts of the plan that are most important are the executive summary and financial projections. Bankers are known to read the executive summary, skim through the rest, and go straight to the financial projections.
Depending on which country you are based in, the CSBFP loan and SBA business loans are two common applications.
SBA business plan writers are experienced in a variety of loans provided from the Small Business Administration in the USA.
Bank loan business plan writers should be exceptional at providing financial projections which are somewhat conservative, yet able to provide comfort in your businesses ability to repay the debt.
Cost of Business Plan Writers
One of the most common questions asked is: how much do business plan writers charge?
The answer is simple, anywhere from $20 USD to $25,000 USD.
However, the average business plan writer should charge anywhere from $1,500 USD to $3,000 USD.
A business plan writer’s salary is largely dependent on their place of work, whether for a professional consulting firm or working independently on a referral basis.
You can still retain a business plan expert for a startup business plan. In fact, some startups will pay more for a plan than an existing business, because the founders are determined to create the strongest business plan possible.
Local Business Plan Writers
The best way to find local business plan writers is by simply searching on Google.
This search engine has one of the most advanced algorithms of all time. By simply searching for a “business plan writer” Google will provide two to three Ads, which could be writers based anywhere in the world but targeting your city, and it will also show organic results which are commonly local results.
Many clients will prefer a local business plan writer over a firm that is based outside of their city, province/state, or country.
In fact, there is a small percentage of people that will want to physically meet with the business plan writer to discuss in person. In today’s world most business plans are written virtually and it is not required to meet a business plan consultant in person.
Business plan writing services can be provided equally as effectively from the other side of the world as they can be provided from local business plan writers.
The best business plan writers will make you feel equally as comfortable working on a plan remotely, as a local business plan writer will from down the street.
A great sign of this is when a plan writer provides multiple reviews, sample business plans, the approximate amount of capital they have raised, and they walk you through their process which should indefinitely include a business plan contract.
