For most founders, writing a business plan feels like the startup equivalent of homework.
It’s the thing you know you have to do, but nobody actually wants to do.
Here’s some easy formatting tips to help you do just that.
If your margins are too narrow, it makes the page look super cluttered and more difficult to read.
Here’s the good news: writing your business plan doesn’t have to be this daunting, cumbersome chore.
Once you understand the fundamental questions that your business plan should answer for your readers and how to position everything in a way that compels your them to take action, writing it becomes way more approachable.
if your business plan is laden with inconsistent margins, multiple font types and sizes, missing headings and page numbers, and lacks a table of contents, it’s going to create a far less digestible reading experience.
While there’s no one way to format your plan, the idea here is to ensure that it presents professionally.
Limit your plan to two typefaces (one for headings and one for body copy and subheadings, for example) that you can find in a standard text editor like Microsoft Word or Google Docs.
Only pick fonts that are easy to read and contain both capital and lowercase letters.
