So you've decided to start your own freight brokering business, after all it is a very profitable business when you have very low overhead and potential customers, right? But how will you get started, there are start up expenses, projections to calculate, and the list goes on and on.
Let me say first this plan is not one you can purchase and then hand it directly to the funding company to get financed, but it will give you an outline to use as a guide in writing your own, and also some ideas about marketing and sales.
Now, what I'm offering for this auction is a sample of my business plan that I wrote to start my own business of freight brokering service. (It's actually the entire plan, I say it's a sample because you will have to change some details to make it your own.) You will receive an electronic copy of the exact plan that I used to start my business, and of course, you would need to change the business names, addresses, and some other information according to your own business.
You may ask why would I do all this work and then just put it out there for anyone to use, well, I learned in creating my own is that most of this information is simply for the lending company to understand how your business will work and if its feasible for it to profit, the hard thing is sitting down, doing the research and writing it up. You know what your business can do but the lending company doesn't, up to that point its just an idea. I decided that sharing this information wouldn't hurt my business but could possibly help someone elses.
A little information about my experiences. I started off with an idea and decided that if I could get some customers and carriers I would be rolling in the money! Well that was my first mistake. Once I started the process, I realized that I was completely wrong. I knew I would have to get financing for a start up loan and that's where the business plan came into play. The finance company I went to was very nice and tried to help in any way they could, but ultimately it was up to me to write the plan, since obviously, it was my idea.
The business plan you will receive contains tons of information, I researched over 100 hours on the subjects and put them into laymens terms so it could be understood by anyone, not just those in the brokering business. (Making it simple for financing companies.) There are 20 pages to this business plan, complete with tables, color graphs, marketing strategy, sample resumes, Profit & Loss projections, sales projections, weekly/monthly expenses, projected revenue, salary reports and financial plans. Below is a table of content that was pulled directly from the business plan which will show you what you will receive. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me, I'll be glad to answer any questions you may have.
Once you have made a purchase, within 24 business hours (I try to send it the same day you pay) you will receive an email with a Word attachment. Simple as that! And after you receive it and you have questions, I'd be happy to help any way I can.
Please don't be fooled by other companies who write business plans, it should come from an experienced broker, not a fill in the blank form. My company has combined experience of over 21 years in this industry and we know what it takes to get the job done. We have put together this business plan and the business in reality, not just to sell the plan, so buy with confidence!
