Writing an Effective Business Plan: Page 7 - Supporting Data

By Julie King |

Page 7 - Supporting Data

The data that supports the concepts you have described in your business plan goes into the Appendices of your plan.

The addition of supporting data often sees a plan grow from its initial 20 pages to the final 50-100 pages. It is here that you include relevant information on the tactics of your business. Do you have a list of major suppliers? Clients? Rate cards from your competitors? Include this information in your plan's appendices.

Typical data in this section includes: more detailed market research, resumes/biographies of your management team, marketing materials, intellectual property details such as trademarks, and patents that have been filed, blueprints, environmental statements, valuations, contact numbers and justification for a loan request.
