You especially need to answer these questions for this business. Why do you choose this particular line of activity? What is the advantage of a hollow blocks production business? Concrete hollow blocks are a fairly popular material in construction. Demand for it increases significantly during the construction season. This is due to the following factors:

  • Affordability: Hollow blocks have a lower price compared to other construction materials, making them highly demanded for the construction of cost-effective country houses.
  • Lightweight nature: Hollow blocks, depending on the raw materials used, are lighter than alternative construction materials. This advantage reduces the total weight of the building.
  • Environmentally friendly: These special concrete hollow blocks are manufactured using only cement, sand, water, and various additive materials, without the inclusion of harmful chemicals. This ensures their environmental friendliness.
  • Effective insulation: With low thermal conductivity, hollow blocks contribute to reducing heating costs in houses or rooms by approximately 20-30%. This eliminates the need for additional expenses on heat-insulating materials.

  Block Making Machine Details

  For producing good quality hollow blocks, you need to purchase any kind of high-quality concrete hollow blocks making machine. 

What equipment will be needed for the production of hollow blocks :

  • Hollow block making machine
  • Concrete mixers
  • Aggregate hopper for raw materials such as cement, sand, water, and additives
  • Conveyor belts for transferring the materials into the mixer
  • concrete block mold
  • supplying raw materials, water, and cement

Production Process Of Concrete Hollow Blocks

The production process of concrete hollow blocks consists of three main stages:

  • Mixture Preparation: In this initial stage, different raw materials are combined and mixed in a concrete mixer to create mortar. The mixer blends the ingredients thoroughly to ensure a homogeneous mixture.
  • Block Production: The second stage involves the actual production of the blocks. This is achieved using either semi-automatic or automatic concrete hollow block machines. These machines are capable of efficiently shaping and forming the blocks according to the desired specifications.
  • Curing and Storage: The final stage entails curing and storing the produced blocks. Once the concrete hollow blocks are ready, they are transferred to a designated area for the curing process. After curing, the blocks are then stored until they are ready to be transported or used in construction projects.

After thoroughly mixing the mixture, it is important to pour it into the machine and activate the vibration and pressure. This ensures that the mixture is evenly distributed within the molds. As the concrete shrinks, additional portions of the mixture should be added until the molds are completely filled. Once the concrete has sufficiently shrunk, the molds can be removed, leaving the finished blocks on the pallet or a suitable surface. At this stage, a new batch of mixture can be poured in the molds.

Drying the blocks needs to be given a separate time: the first 24 hours the blocks dry as they were left after the machine. During drying, they sometimes need to be moistened with water, like any concrete product. After a day, the blocks are turned on their side and dried for another 24 hours. After 2 days, they can be stacked on pallets. further details are provided in brick making machine article. also, the prices of the machine are included.

Curing the blocks requires a separate period of time. Initially, the blocks are left to dry for the first 24 hours in the same position as they were left after the molding process. During the curing period, it may be necessary to occasionally moisten the blocks with water, as is common for concrete products. After one day, the blocks are collected from the pallets and dried for an additional 24 hours. After a total of two days, the blocks can be stacked or sold. More detailed information can be found in the brick making machine article, including pricing details.

  • A Detailed Concrete Business Plan

If you have done your homework, you should know by now that a business plan is a must-have resource for this business. A good business plan will let the entrepreneur see all of the details regarding the business.

Your business plan must include your startup cost, location, number of employees and their qualifications, marketing strategies, equipment that will be needed and their costs, etc.

One other good thing about a business plan is that investors and lenders will take you seriously and will consider funding your business.

  • Source for Materials for the Concrete Company

One important aspect of the business is the materials you will use for your concrete. You must go out and shop for reliable suppliers and their prices. Choose a supplier that delivers good quality and must not disappoint.

The last thing you would ever want in your business is having a project delay because your supplier is yet to deliver the materials needed for the work to start.

If it happened, it will spoil your company’s name and your client won’t want to contact your company next time.

  • Apply for Concrete Company License

This is also important when starting a concrete company. No client will want to work with you if you are not government approved. You must be a licensed contractor to be able to win contracts.

All paperwork must be taken care of starting from registering your company’s name to getting every necessary document and getting a concrete company license before you start operation. It is advisable to go to the local authorities and fulfill the requirement. It may be a lot of work but it is necessary.

  • Choose a Location

The subject of the location should even be on your mind at the start of thinking about starting this business. The place you choose to site your concrete company should be a place that will be convenient for your clients and also close to where you can get raw materials for work.

The place must also be big enough to be used as a workplace for your workers and also to store materials. You can take a look at your competitors and get an insight into a good place to site your company.

  • Build and Grow your Network  

To grow your concrete company, you will need to network with other entrepreneurs in the concrete business by joining an association of concrete contractors. This will grow your business credibility, and as a member, you will have access to reliable suppliers and other contractors who may be able to refer you to potential clients to help you get started.

Establishing your network also entails you work with other concrete companies as a subcontractor. This way, you can build a portfolio for your company and have something to show potential clients.

  • Buy the Right Equipment

You can’t work without equipment. Equipment you will need includes but not limited to are;

  • Trucks (at least 2).
  • Concrete Mixer
  • Concrete Cleaners
  • Spreaders and Tampers
  • Concrete forms and Concrete Molds

These are some equipment that you will be needing to run a concrete company effectively.

  • Get the Right Employees

In the concrete company, we have two types of employees. There are the administrative staff and the field workers or engineers. The administrative staff is the ones that take care of the paperwork. They should be intelligent and qualified for the job.

Also, your field workers must be professionals and skillful too. You must find the right team to work with if you will want to achieve success in the construction industry. Getting the right squad is an important factor you must be in mind.

  •  GET STARTED

After taking all the necessary steps listed above, the next requirement you will need to start your concrete block making business is capital. So, you must find a means to raise capital. When you have the capital, you can then get a suitable location and purchase the necessary equipment and materials you will need.

Some of the equipment you will need are concrete block molder, concrete mixer, and concrete block mixing machine, a stand by generator, block carriers, a borehole for water supply, a delivery vehicle, wheelbarrows, and head pans.

You will also need some materials like cement and sharp sand. After getting all these, the next thing is to employ competent and highly skilled workers to use the block making machine and then set the ball rolling. If you take these necessary steps, especially the step that involved getting the needed skill, there is a high possibility that your concrete block making business will succeed. So please, don’t ignore any of the steps I talked about. In fact,

I will suggest that you even do further research to learn more about the concrete block making business as there is more to it than what I have written.

1. industry overview.

Cement bricks manufacturing business is part of the Concrete Pipe and Block industry and players in this industry primarily manufacture concrete pipes, bricks and blocks. Concrete pipes include storm sewer pipes, sanitary sewer pipes, reinforced pressure pipes, pre-stressed cylinder pressure pipes and culvert pipes.

Concrete brick and block production mainly includes structural blocks, decorative blocks and pavers, bricks and miscellaneous concrete products. Products made by this industry are heavily used in infrastructure and residential construction.

While concrete blocks are used across board, concrete pipes are especially reliant on demand from infrastructure markets such as natural gas distribution and sewage treatment. IBISWorld estimates that the industry’s sustained growth had partially resulted from these key markets, which have led industry revenue to rise over the five years to 2017.

Moving forward, construction markets are expected to continue their steady growth. As a result, IBISWorld expects industry revenue to continue increasing. The Concrete Pipe and Block manufacturing industry that cement bricks manufacturing business is a part of is indeed a large industry and pretty much active in most countries of the world.

Statistics have it that in the united states of America alone, there are about 603 registered and licensed concrete pipe and block manufacturing companies scattered all across the United States responsible for employing about 24,110 people and the industry rakes in a whooping sum of $7 billion annually.

The industry is projected to enjoy 2.5 percent annual growth within 2012 and 2015. It is important to state that Cemex SA de CV and CRH PLC are the establishments with the lion shares of the available market in this industry.

Research carried out by IBISWorld shows that the Concrete Pipe and Block manufacturing industry has a medium level of market share concentration, with the three largest players generating an estimated 20.6 percent of industry revenue in 2017.

The remainder of the market is captured by a large number of small and medium-scale operators that service relatively narrow geographical markets.

However, large-scale players maintain a presence across many regional markets. The report further stated that over the past five years, ownership concentration within the industry has increased due to acquisition activity in the US building materials market.

This has typically involved the acquisition of local and regional players by larger companies seeking to expand their operations, and large foreign owned manufacturing companies hoping to gain a foothold in the US market.

Over and above, the concrete pipe and block manufacturing industry is a profitable industry and it is open for any aspiring entrepreneur to come in and establish his or her business; you can choose to start on a small scale or you can choose to start on a large scale servicing a wide range of clientele in the United States’ market space.

Four Squares® Cement Bricks, Inc. is in business to become one of the leading cement bricks manufacturing companies in the whole of Raleigh – South Carolina and we are aware that it will take the right business concept, management and organizational structure to achieve our goal.

We are quite aware that there are several cement bricks manufacturing companies all over the United States of America and even in the same location where we intend locating ours, which is why we are following the due process of establishing a business.

We know that if a proper SWOT analysis is conducted for our business, we will be able to position our business to maximize our strength, leverage on the opportunities that will be available to us, mitigate our risks and be equipped to confront our threats.

Four Squares® Cement Bricks, Inc. employed the services of an expert HR and Business Analyst with bias in manufacturing to help us conduct a thorough SWOT analysis and to help us create a Business model that will help us achieve our business goals and objectives. This is the summary of the SWOT analysis that was conducted for Four Squares® Cement Bricks, Inc.;

Our core strength lies in the high quality of our concrete bricks, pipes and blocks, the power of our team and the state of the art cement bricks manufacturing factory that we own. We have a team of highly trained and experienced staff members that can go all the way to produce durable concrete bricks, pipes and blocks.

We are well positioned in the heart of Raleigh – South Carolina and we know we will attract loads of clients from the first day we open our cement bricks manufacturing company for business.

A major weakness that may count against us is the fact that we are a new cement bricks manufacturing company and we don’t have the financial capacity to compete with multi – million dollars’ cement bricks manufacturing companies in the United States.

So also, we may not have enough cash reserve to promote our cement bricks manufacturing company the way we would want to do.

13. Startup Expenditure (Budget)

In setting up any business, the amount or cost will depend on the approach and scale you want to undertake. If you intend to go big by renting / leasing a big facility, then you would need a good amount of capital as you would need to ensure that your employees are well taken care of, and that your facility is conducive enough for workers to be creative and productive.

This means that the start-up can either be low or high depending on your goals, vision and aspirations for your business. The tools and equipment that will be used are nearly the same cost everywhere, and any difference in prices would be minimal and can be overlooked. These are the key areas where we will spend our startup capital on;

  • The Total Fee for Registering the Business in the United States of America – $750.
  • Legal expenses for obtaining licenses and permits as well as the accounting services (software, P.O.S machines and other software) – $3,300.
  • Marketing promotion expenses for the grand opening of Four Squares® Cement Bricks, Inc. in the amount of $3,500 and as well as flyer printing (2,000 flyers at $0.04 per copy) for the total amount of $3,580.
  • The total cost for hiring Business Consultant – $2,500.
  • The total cost for payment of insurance policy covers (general liability, workers’ compensation and property casualty) coverage at a total premium – $9,400.
  • The total cost for long – term leasing of a standard warehouse and showroom – $250,000
  • The total cost for remodeling the warehouse – $20,000.
  • Other start-up expenses including stationery ( $500 ) and phone and utility deposits – ( $2,500 ).
  • Operational cost for the first 3 months (salaries of employees, payments of bills et al) – $60,000
  • The total cost for cement bricks, concrete pipes and concrete block making machines and start-up inventory – $250,000
  • The total cost for counter area equipment – $9,500
  • The total cost for store equipment (cash register, security, ventilation, signage) – $13,750
  • The total cost for the purchase and installation of CCTVs: $10,000

  • The total cost for our opening party: $7,000
  • Miscellaneous: $10,000

We would need an estimate of five hundred and fifty thousand dollars ( $550,000 ) to successfully set up our cement bricks manufacturing company in Raleigh – South Carolina.

Generating Startup Capital for Four Squares® Cement Bricks, Inc.

Four Squares® Cement Bricks, Inc. is a family business that is owned and financed by Mr. Fritz Humphrey and his immediate family members. They do not intend to welcome any external business partner which is why he has decided to restrict the sourcing of the startup capital to 3 major sources.

These are the areas we intend generating our startup capital;

  • Generate part of the startup capital from personal savings and sell of stocks
  • Source for soft loans from family members and friends
  • Apply for loan from the bank

N.B: We have been able to generate about $200,000 ( Personal savings $150,000 and soft loan from family members $50,000 ) and we are at the final stages of obtaining a loan facility of $350,000 from our bank. All the papers and documents have been signed and submitted, the loan has been approved and any moment from now our account will be credited with the amount.

14. Sustainability and Expansion Strategy

The future of a business lies in the number of loyal customers that they have, the capacity and competence of the employees, their investment strategy and the business structure. If all of these factors are missing from a business, then it won’t be too long before the business close shop.

One of our major goals of Four Squares® Cement Bricks, Inc. is to build a business that will survive off its own cash flow without the need for injecting finance from external sources once the business is officially running.

We know that one of the ways of gaining approval and winning customers over is to manufacture and retail durable cement bricks, pipes and blocks a little bit cheaper than what is obtainable in the market and we are well prepared to survive on lower profit margin for a while.

Four Squares® Cement Bricks, Inc. will make sure that the right foundation, structures and processes are put in place to ensure that our staff welfare are well taken of. Our company’s corporate culture is designed to drive our business to greater heights and training and retraining of our workforce is at the top burner.

We know that if that is put in place, we will be able to successfully hire and retain the best hands we can get in the industry; they will be more committed to help us build the business of our dreams.

Peter Bachmann Foundation

May 2016: ethiopia / lalibela: hcb production project for low cost houses, lalibela hcb production project for low cost houses.

Lalibela, considered to be a “town of contrast”, where a very few people enjoys a luxury life (owning a modern hotel at their early ages, having a couple of cars, counting every day bulk of foreign cash…) while there are many more people who are suffering from hunger, being jobless and homeless. This case is even worse for the elderly people who don’t have anyone on behalf of them.

And the mountainous feature of the town and the difficulties to find raw material collectively make housing a major problem in the town especially for the very low income portion of the society. Even the few people who are able to build their house are supposed to cut the Eucalyptus trees from the surrounding mountains and letting exposed those mountains to flood and erosion. So, more than 95% of the houses in the town are from Eucalyptus walls including the 29 house we built for elderly people (having an average of 4 family members each) who were displaced from an old village. There are still thousands of people who are being homeless and asking the PBF to build them a house; there are people who spent the day on the streets and sleep at night covering plastic sheet.

Though, it is impossible to solve all this kind of requests, the PBF decided to contribute its share to some extent with the principle of “Low Cost Houses”. The PBF organized a group of 7 young members some of them are Vocational college graduates in the field of construction. But those people were jobless for years as this is the case for most Lalibeleans. The PBF offered them a Hollow Blocks producing Machine by which they can produce about 2,400 blocks a day from a ratio of “more sand and very little amount of cement”. The PBF is working with this group in a principle of ‘mutual benefit’; other than the machine, the PBF will again offer this group raw materials (sand and cement) for the first time to get started and then afterwards the group will provide blocks freely for the PBF whenever the PBF plans to build low cost houses for the homeless people (so the PBF will no more incur too much funds to build a house if it gets the blocks freely by only providing the raw material). And the group would earn a sustainable income from selling blocks for other outside customers. In the past, people are supposed to bring blocks from the capital Addis which is about 700Kms with an expensive price. So people now can have blocks with cheaper prices and the group members will keep getting remarkable income as this is the only Blocks producing group with a very good machine in the town. This is the way of integrating PBF’s projects with an intention of bringing a sustainable change to the community. Building an ordinary house with the proposed blocks is about 35-40% much cheaper than building with the Eucalyptus trees . And by doing this, we could build not only many houses but also we are protecting the environment from cutting the trees by which the people used to build their house.

What Is a Business Plan?

A business plan provides a snapshot of your production company as it stands today, and lays out your growth plan for the next five years. It explains your business goals and your strategies for reaching them. It also includes market research to support your plans.

Why You Need a Business Plan

If you’re looking to start a production company or grow your existing production company, you need a business plan. A business plan will help you raise funding, if needed, and plan out the growth of your production company to improve your chances of success. Your production company business plan is a living document that should be updated annually as your company grows and changes.

Sources of Funding for Production Companies

With regards to funding, the main sources of funding for a production company are personal savings, credit cards, bank loans, and angel investors. When it comes to bank loans, banks will want to review your business plan and gain confidence that you will be able to repay your loan and interest. To acquire this confidence, the loan officer will not only want to ensure that your financials are reasonable, but they will also want to see a professional plan. Such a plan will give them the confidence that you can successfully and professionally operate a business. Personal savings and bank loans are the most common funding paths for production companies.

How to write a business plan for a production company.

If you want to start a production company or expand your current one, you need a business plan. The guide below details the necessary information for how to write each essential component of your production company business plan.

Executive Summary

Your executive summary provides an introduction to your business plan, but it is normally the last section you write because it provides a summary of each key section of your plan.

The goal of your executive summary is to quickly engage the reader. Explain to them the kind of production company you are running and the status. For example, are you a startup, do you have a production company that you would like to grow, or are you operating a chain of production companies?

Next, provide an overview of each of the subsequent sections of your plan.

  • Give a brief overview of the production industry.
  • Discuss the type of production company you are operating.
  • Detail your direct competitors. Give an overview of your target customers.
  • Provide a snapshot of your marketing strategy. Identify the key members of your team.
  • Offer an overview of your financial plan.

Company Overview

In your company overview, you will detail the type of production company you are operating.

For example, your production company might specialize in one of the following types of production companies:

  • Feature Film Production Company : this type of production company handles all of the necessities that go with producing a major film – hiring on-screen and off-screen talent, writers, musicians, location scouts, a team for pre-production, post-production, legal, etc.
  • Commercial Production Company: this type of production company can produce stock footage, short corporate videos, training videos, and creative projects such as music videos and short films
  • Post Production Company: this type of production company handles video editing, special effects, color correction, sound mixing, and editing to eventually produce the final video.
  • Niche Production Company: this type of production company focuses on one specific niche that it has perfected. They often combine the best of animation, commercial, and post-production companies.

In addition to explaining the type of production company you will operate, the company overview needs to provide background on the business.

Include answers to questions such as:

  • When and why did you start the business?
  • What milestones have you achieved to date? Milestones could include the number of clients served, the number of films with positive reviews, reaching X number of clients served, etc.
  • Your legal business structure. Are you incorporated as an S-Corp? An LLC? A sole proprietorship? Explain your legal structure here.

Industry Analysis

In your industry or market analysis, you need to provide an overview of the production industry.

While this may seem unnecessary, it serves multiple purposes.

First, researching the production industry educates you. It helps you understand the market in which you are operating.

Secondly, market research can improve your marketing strategy, particularly if your analysis identifies market trends.

The third reason is to prove to readers that you are an expert in your industry. By conducting the research and presenting it in your plan, you achieve just that.

The following questions should be answered in the industry analysis section of your production company business plan:

  • How big is the production industry (in dollars)?
  • Is the market declining or increasing?
  • Who are the key competitors in the market?
  • Who are the key suppliers in the market?
  • What trends are affecting the industry?
  • What is the industry’s growth forecast over the next 5 – 10 years?
  • What is the relevant market size? That is, how big is the potential target market for your production company? You can extrapolate such a figure by assessing the size of the market in the entire country and then applying that figure to your local population.

Customer Analysis

The customer analysis section of your production company business plan must detail the customers you serve and/or expect to serve.

The following are examples of customer segments: individuals, companies, filmmakers, studios.

As you can imagine, the customer segment(s) you choose will have a great impact on the type of production company you operate. Clearly, small businesses would respond to different marketing promotions than filmmakers, for example.

Try to break out your target customers in terms of their demographic and psychographic profiles. With regards to demographics, including a discussion of the ages, genders, locations, and income levels of the potential customers you seek to serve.

Psychographic profiles explain the wants and needs of your target customers. The more you can recognize and define these needs, the better you will do in attracting and retaining your customers.

Competitive Analysis

Your competitive analysis should identify the indirect and direct competitors your business faces and then focus on the latter.

Direct competitors are other production companies.

Indirect competitors are other options that customers have to purchase from that aren’t directly competing with your product or service. This includes social media platforms, web developers, apps and even college or university students. You need to mention such competition as well.

For each such competitor, provide an overview of their business and document their strengths and weaknesses. Unless you once worked at your competitors’ businesses, it will be impossible to know everything about them. But you should be able to find out key things about them such as

  • What types of clients do they serve?
  • What type of production company are they?
  • What is their pricing (premium, low, etc.)?
  • What are they good at?
  • What are their weaknesses?

With regards to the last two questions, think about your answers from the customers’ perspective. And don’t be afraid to ask your competitors’ customers what they like most and least about them.

The final part of your competitive analysis section is to document your areas of competitive advantage. For example:

  • Will you provide concierge services or customized packages for your clients?
  • Will you offer products or services that your competition doesn’t?
  • Will you provide better customer service?
  • Will you offer better pricing?

Think about ways you will outperform your competition and document them in this section of your plan.  

Marketing Plan

Traditionally, a marketing plan includes the four P’s: Product, Price, Place, and Promotion. For a production company business plan, your marketing strategy should include the following:

Product : In the product section, you should reiterate the type o f production company that you documented in your company overview. Then, detail the specific products or services you will be offering. For example, will you provide video editing, music editing, pre-production, or post-production services?

Price : Document the prices you will offer and how they compare to your competitors. Essentially in the product and price sub-sections of yo ur plan, yo u are presenting the products and/or services you offer and their prices.

Place : Place refers to the site of your production company. Document where your company is situated and mention how the site will impact your success. For example, is your production company located in New York or Los Angeles, a business district, a standalone office, or purely online? Discuss how your site might be the ideal location for your customers.

Promotions : The final part of your production company marketing plan is where you will document how you will drive potential customers to your location(s). The following are some promotional methods you might consider:

  • Be part of filmmaker associations and networks
  • Reach out to websites
  • Distribute flyers
  • Engage in email marketing
  • Advertise on social media platforms
  • Improve the SEO (search engine optimization) on your website for targeted keywords

Operations Plan

While the earlier sections of your business plan explained your goals, your operations plan describes how you will meet them. Your operations plan should have two distinct sections as follows.

Everyday short-term processes include all of the tasks involved in running your production company , including client communication and interaction, planning and producing production services, billing clients, etc.

Long-term goals are the milestones you hope to achieve. These could include the dates when you expect to book your Xth client, or when you hope to reach $X in revenue. It could also be when you expect to expand your production company to a new city.  

Management Team

To demonstrate your production company’s potential to succeed, a strong management team is essential. Highlight your key players’ backgrounds, emphasizing those skills and experiences that prove their ability to grow a company.

Ideally, you and/or your team members have direct experience in managing production companies. If so, highlight this experience and expertise. But also highlight any experience that you think will help your business succeed.

If your team is lacking, consider assembling an advisory board. An advisory board would include 2 to 8 individuals who would act as mentors to your business. They would help answer questions and provide strategic guidance. If needed, look for advisory board members with experience in managing a production company or successfully running a small filmmaking company.  

Financial Plan

Your financial plan should include your 5-year financial statement broken out both monthly or quarterly for the first year and then annually. Your financial statements include your income statement, balance s heet, and cash flow statements.

Income Statement

An income statement is more commonly called a Profit and Loss statement or P&L. It shows your revenue and then subtracts your costs to show whether you turned a profit or not.

In developing your income statement, you need to devise assumptions. For example, will you book 5 films or videos per day, and/or offer production packages ? And will sales grow by 2% or 10% per year? As you can imagine, your choice of assumptions will greatly impact the financial forecasts for your business. As much as possible, conduct research to try to root your assumptions in reality.

Balance Sheets

Balance sheets show your assets and liabilities. While balance sheets can include much information, try to simplify them to the key items you need to know about. For instance, if you spend $50,000 on building out your production company, this will not give you immediate profits. Rather it is an asset that will hopefully help you generate profits for years to come. Likewise, if a lender writes you a check for $50,000, you don’t need to pay it back immediately. Rather, that is a liability you will pay back over time.

Cash Flow Statement

Your cash flow statement will help determine how much money you need to start or grow your business, and ensure you never run out of money. What most entrepreneurs and business owners don’t realize is that you can turn a profit but run out of money and go bankrupt.

When creating your Income Statement and Balance Sheets be sure to include several of the key costs needed in starting or growing a production company:

  • Cost of equipment and production studio supplies
  • Payroll or salaries paid to staff
  • Business insurance
  • Other start-up expenses (if you’re a new business) like legal expenses, permits, computer software, and equipment

Attach your full financial projections in the appendix of your plan along with any supporting documents that make your plan more compelling. For example, you might include your studio location lease or a list of production services you plan to offer.  

Writing a business plan for your production company is a worthwhile endeavor. If you follow the template above, by the time you are done, you will truly be an expert. You will understand the production industry, your competition, and your customers. You will develop a marketing strategy and will understand what it takes to launch and grow a successful production company.

Tips for Creating a Business Plan

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed at the thought of putting together a business plan. Below, you’ll find top tips to help simplify the process as you develop your own plan. 

  • Use a business plan template (you can choose from the variety above), or refer to the previous section to create a standard outline for your plan.
  • Modify your outline to reflect the requirements of your specific business. If you use a standard business plan outline, remove sections that aren’t relevant to you or aren’t necessary to run your business.
  • Gather all the information you currently have about your business first, and then use that information to fill out each section in your plan outline.
  • Use your resources and conduct additional research to fill in the remaining gaps. (Note: It isn’t necessary to fill out your plan in order, but the executive summary needs to be completed last, as it summarizes the key points in your plan.)
  • Ensure your plan clearly communicates the relationship between your marketing, sales, and financial objectives.
  • Provide details in your plan that illustrate your strategic plan of action, looking forward three to five years.
  • Revisit your plan regularly as strategies and objectives evolve.
  • What product or service are we offering?
  • Who is the product or service for?
  • What problem does our product or service offering solve?
  • How will we get the product or service to our target customers?
  • Why is our product or service better than the alternatives?
  • How can we outperform our competitors?
  • What is our unique value proposition?
  • When will things get done, and who is responsible for doing them?
  • If you need to obtain funding, how will you use the funding?
  • When are payments due, and when do payments come in?
  • What is the ultimate purpose of your business?
  • When do you expect to be profitable?

Benefits of Using a Business Plan Template

Creating a business plan can be very time-consuming, especially if you aren’t sure where to begin. Finding the right template for your business needs can be beneficial for a variety of reasons. 

Using a business plan template — instead of creating your plan from scratch — can benefit you in the following ways:

  • Enables you to immediately write down your thoughts and ideas in an organized manner
  • Provides structure to help outline your plan
  • Saves time and valuable resources
  • Helps ensure you don’t miss essential details

Limitations of a Business Plan Template

A business plan template can be convenient, but it has its drawbacks — especially if you use a template that doesn’t fit the specific needs of your business.

Below are some limitations of using a business plan template:

  • Each business is unique and needs a business plan that reflects that. A template may not fit your needs.
  • A template may restrict collaboration with other team members on different aspects of the plan’s development (sales, marketing, and accounting teams).
  • Multiple files containing different versions of the plan may be stored in more than one place.
  • You still have to manually create charts and graphs to add to the plan to support your strategy.
  • Updates to the plan, spreadsheets, and supporting documents have to be made in multiple places (all documents may not update in real time as changes are made).

A well-conceived business plan is essential to the success of an enterprise. Whether you are starting up a venture, seeking additional capital for an existing product line, or proposing a new activity for a corporate division, you will have to write a plan detailing your project's resource requirements, marketing decisions, financial projections, production demands, and personnel needs. The plan must reflect the viewpoint of three constituencies: the customer, the investor, and the producer. Too many business plans focus excessively on the producer.

Learning Objectives

To ensure that one's business plan includes proof that a large market exists for the proposed offering and that it addresses investors' concerns, such as when they can cash out.
