You wouldn’t build a house without a blueprint, and a pilot wouldn’t fly an airplane without a flight map.
However, when the word “revenue” enters the picture perhaps you scratch your head in confusion or conclude that if you hustle hard enough on the front end, the money will follow.
While you might stumble into cash if you simply serve hard, devising a strategy for making money is made infinitely easier with the implementation of a framework.
There’s a way to bypass some of this early trial and error without getting buried under pages of research, and it comes down to having an organized, brief and simple plan to keep you focused.
We have a simple, free, focused 1-page business template for you.
This one page game plan summarizes your high level strategy in one page, so naturally there are a lot of questions to answer. How will you turn that value into something people will actually pay for? Fizzle’s Business Sketch Template serves as a guide through these aspects and beyond, breaking all the essential elements into straightforward questions.
These questions can be grouped into a few critical components: The problem – Who will you serve? Bridging problem & solution – How will you explain your business in a compelling, concise way? Business reality – What will this business require? These are the building blocks of your business fitting together on just one page.
It might seem surprising or impossible to imagine that all of the most crucial pieces of your business can fit onto one page.
At Fizzle, we call this plan a sketch: it’s meant to be completed quickly, if not a bit roughly, but the objective is still to put pencil to paper.
A one page business plan document like this is a valuable tool to develop clarity, it is not a replacement for a full business plan if needed for external parties (fund raising, etc).
Line any effective plan, a one page business plan should be a living document, and revisited regularly – weekly/ monthly!
