The Business Model Canvas - 9 Steps to Creating a Successful Business Model - Startup Tips The Business Model Canvas, is a strategic management and entrepreneurial tool. It allows you to describe, design, challenge, invent, and pivot your business model. The Business Model Canvas is comprised of 9 key segments: The left hand section of the Business Model Canvas is the Infrastructure section and comprises three key areas: Key Activities: The most important activities in executing a company's value proposition. Key Resources: The resources that are necessary to create value for the customer. Partner Network: In order to optimize operations and reduce risks of a business model, organization usually cultivate buyer-supplier relationships so they can focus on their core activity. The middle section of the canvas describes the business offering and is the value proposition delivered to different customer segments. Value Propositions: The collection of products and services a business offers to meet the needs of its customers. According to Osterwalder, (2004), a company's value proposition is what distinguishes itself from its competitors. The value proposition provides value through various elements such as newness, performance, customization, "getting the job done", design, brand/status, price, cost reduction, risk reduction, accessibility, and convenience/usability. The value propositions may be: Quantitative – price and efficiency Qualitative – overall customer experience and outcome The right hand side of the Business Model Canvas describes the customers, the channels through which you deliver services and and the relationships you have with your customers. Customer Segments: To build an effective business model, a company must identify which customers it tries to serve. Various sets of customers can be segmented based on the different needs and attributes to ensure appropriate implementation of corporate strategy meets the characteristics of selected group of clients. Channels: A company can deliver its value proposition to its targeted customers through different channels. Effective channels will distribute a company’s value proposition in ways that are fast, efficient and cost effective. An organization can reach its clients either through its own channels (store front), partner channels (major distributors), or a combination of both. Customer Relationships: To ensure the survival and success of any businesses, companies must identify the type of relationship they want to create with their customer segments. The bottom section of the canvas describes the finances. Cost Structure: This describes the most important monetary consequences while operating under different business models. A company's DOC. Revenue Streams: The way a company makes income from each customer segment. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCIypuA7lS-FsVG6cMlNCK2w?sub_confirmation=1 Check out some of our other videos Compensation claims - how long should it take https://youtu.be/NuxfrgSTg78 LLC vs S Corp https://youtu.be/4xNCnf9hitw Minizing tax https://youtu.be/ybSnFb6rx6Y How to fund a startup https://youtu.be/ctzDb59sw5M Kickstarter success Ep 1 https://youtu.be/2EG78JNZ7nA Kickstarter success Ep 2 https://youtu.be/ZMlq5CmUNz8 How to pitch to investors with Guy Kawasaki https://youtu.be/-epR-uGlv4M If you are interested in sustainability issues then check this video out The Sustainable Business Model Canvas https://youtu.be/gVimMEI2u2w

In this tutorial I give you 20 business planning tips starting with issues like how long a business plan should be, when to give it to investors, how to decide whether you should write one or not, and a few other good practice tips.

After that, I get into the template of the business plan, and explain what each section of this document should contain, how to write it, and how to impress investors or savvy business people. Because after all, what makes a good business plan isn't the outline or the template, but the business strategy and business model that you outline in the document.

The tutorial template outline covers the executive summary, writing your product or service description section, creating your marketing plan and how to think about and write the section of the business plan that discusses your revenue streams, projected (pro forma) revenue and earnings, how to write your unit economics section, and how to write the section of the document that talks about your founding executive team, advisors and mentors. You should also create a section explaining whether there are any previous investors in the business. Plus, you should crate an appendix which contains your sensitive financial information that you may want to show to investors, but not random other people. So you can add and remove the appendix from the business plan whenever you want. Lastly, you should create a financials section. The financials are more complex and intimidating than other sections so I cover that in more detail in my course on how to write a business plan.

So now you have a free template, an easy outline and you should be reading to start writing, creating and doing some fantastic business planning. Good luck, and I hope that this tutorial and the other resources I posted will help you write a very good (or great) business plan to impress investors and whoever else you want to impress. And most importantly, I wish you best of luck growing your company and making it a success.

You can use this tutorial to write a business plan for a restaurant, cleaning business, local service, ecommerce, home repair, gelato or frozen yogurt shop, deli or sandwich shop, t-shirt printing company, elearning company, day spa, hair salon or beauty salon, hardware store or shop, personal trainer, milkshake shop, restaurant or diner, bar or pub, virtual assistant or personal concierge, affiliate, mobile app, bookstore or a kids store or a boutique, non profit, pool hall, liquor store, hookah lounge, or any other kind of business.
