Last week in this blog we talked about the importance of having some kind of business plan for your maker business. We poised a few questions to help you identify the objectives you have for your business and explore the numbers – pricing, volume, margins and profits. Many readers contacted us asking whether we could recommend a business plan template that works for makers as well as other businesses.

Since we didn’t have a good example of a business plan template, we decided to create one ourselves. This is designed to be an easily accessible template, it’s not full of technical jargon or created for large corporates; it’s perfect for small business owners, people who are making their products from home or small workshops, people who sell online or at fairs and local independent shops, people that want to grow their business and keep it on track.

If you would like a copy of our Maker Business Plan template, simply fill in the form below and download your copy. Then all you need to do is print it out and fill it in, or annotate it in Adobe Reader or Preview.
