Sample business plan for a home business


GOAL: To get a XYZ Videoconferencing package in every Internet capable household in America, and then build sales around the world.


A need exists for a convenient, inexpensive and above all easy way to communicate long distance utilizing videoconferencing and the free long-distance capabilities and power of the Internet. Many people are still afraid to fully utilize their computers. By using a combination of Netmeeting and the ILS, or by using a direct one to one connection, anyone can videoconference with our XYZ videoconferencing package. XYZ provides an EASY way to hookup to the Internet and videoconference FREE through the use of either an ILS site or direct one-to-one-conferencing.

Capital Request

Mr Smith is requesting a $100,000 venture capital grant to help expand the business. A portion of the business and the future earnings will go to the Venture Capital company.


This business plan is prepared as a proposal and an operating and policy
guide for management.

Mr. Smith, the owner, is requesting Venture Capital in the amount of $100,000.00 on behalf of xyz . (D.B.A. xyz).
XYZ currently has the following assets:

Fixtures and Equipment $ 2,000.00
Inventory 150.00
Working Capital 2,500.00

Grand Total $4,650.00


XYZ sells high quality, easy to use and inexpensive video conferencing packages. The initial three target markets will be military personnel and their families, college students and their families and older people such as grandparents. In addition, the company plans to strongly market educational institutions with a focus on distance learning colleges who offer classes over the Internet.

During the first nine months, the company will sell one variety of computer cameras. Within two years, we will expand our operations to include additional choices of cameras and corresponding instructional videos. We will add additional merchandise, which will enhance or improve the quality of the xyz video conferencing experience. xyz will become a one-stop store for variety videoconferencing and Internet communication programs.

XYZ Networks Package Specs.

A XYZ. package consists of three parts: the IBM Camera, the instructional installation video and the informative booklet. (Camera Specs. Taken from the Xirlink Webpage. www.

The Camera

The IBM PC Camera is a high quality, compact and versatile digital PC camera that is easy to install and use. The camera provides users with instant
plug-and-play functionality by incorporating USB technology into the design. The IBM PC Camera is capable of achieving 30 frames per second at 352 x 288 pixels, setting the benchmark for today's superior PC cameras.
The IBM PC Camera supports a wide range of fixed or mobile applications for desktop and notebook computers. This camera offers the consumer the ability to capture excellent still image photos and high frame rate video through a user friendly software interface. Additionally, the IBM PC Camera provides users with an adjustable focus lens and an instant snapshot button.

The IBM PC Camera software offers a complete range of applications including video mail and a convenient photo album. This software enables users to visually communicate by turning ordinary e-mail into video mail and the superior video compression technology in this camera insures that the video file sizes are manageable. This PC camera solution is perfect for the user to stay in touch with colleagues, family and friends.

2. The Instructional Video

The Instructional video is the key to the simplicity of the xyz package. At approx 28 min in length it takes a client step-by-step, scene-by-scene, from opening the box to actually videoconferencing with relatives and friends.

The video makes it easy to set up the computer camera and videoconference. The key to the xyz package is the video and the rock solid camera. The video helps eliminate the fear factor involved with the use of computers and videoconferencing. Imagine being able to talk face to face to your loved ones free of charge! The xyz package allows you to do exactly that, within 30 minutes from start to finish you will be talking live to your family member or friend.

3. The Informative Booklet.

The informative booklet will describe exactly what an ILS site is. It will also give a brief history of Videoconferencing. Perhaps one of the key sections of the booklet will be the current up to date listing of all the various non-adult ILS sites which are available on the Internet. The booklet will describe what exactly is happening when you videoconference and how the future of videoconferencing will continue to grow. xyz will also discuss the benefits of businesses owning a xyz package.


Unlike the chain stores such as Office Max and Best Buys which sell you just the camera xyz leads you step by step, scene by scene, through the installation of your PC camera and the large variety of software which comes with it We hold your hand all the way through the process. xyz always will be owner managed and a family business helping other families stay in touch. We will constantly evaluate and adjust merchandise mix to meet customer demand and preferences. We will, within twelve months, provide several selections under one roof. One of the keys to our success will be to make Videoconferencing a less intimidating undertaking. XYZ will take all the fear and guesswork out of communicating live face to face via the Internet.

The company will always strive to carry and sell quality but inexpensive videoconferencing and Internet hardware and software. As the market demand grows XYZ will also increase not only our product line but also the instructional videos we provide. Adaptability to changing market needs and conditions will be one of the key factors in XYZ’s continued success.
To make it more convenient for our customers, we plan on accepting major credit cards in the near future to help increase sales. It is our policy to provide exceptional personal service and convenient 24-7 shopping hours to our customers via our website.

Because we provide a friendly and family-oriented environment, customers will be comfortable in buying our products and, by listening to their with feedback on the types of inventory they want to buy, we hope to instill in them a sense that we are a family business helping families and friends stay in touch not only easily but also affordably. By way of making our customers more comfortable, we are considering offering a free short initial videoconference with them to test their equipment and ask any questions they might have.


XYZ has spent countless hours looking for competition on the Internet. To date XYZ has found various websites (Best Buy, Office Max) primarily larger retailers who do in fact sell a computer camera and camera bundles. The very positive news is that XYZ was unable to locate any retailer who sells a Videoconferencing package with a informative booklet and or a instructional video.


XYZ believes that the viability for the market for low cost externally mounted PC cameras will last approximately three years at which point more and more retailers such as Dell and Gateway will begin to incorporate lower end computer cameras into their monitors. Due to the larger size of the higher end PC cameras XYZ believes it will be prudent to start offering them after approximately 18 months of marketing the initial XYZ package. XYZ will broaden their market mix as demand and demographics dictate.

XYZ believes there are many more potential clients besides the four initial target markets.. These may include: Any business person who has to be on the road a lot. School children who are bedridden. Government officials, any business or person who needs to communicate with a regional office. As band width increases and data transmission rates become consistently faster through the use of cable modems and fiber optics XYZ will evolve with this trend by offering additional cameras and accessories. (Note) The initial camera offered in the XYZ package is fully capable of handling the maximum band width available today.


XYZ will use a variety of advertising methods to include:

Print Advertising

We will reach our customers primarily through the military newspapers: The Army Times, The Navy Times, The Marine Corp. Times and The Airforce Times. We will also be advertising through various College and University Newspapers. Additionally XYZ will be advertising in Modern Maturity magazine, which is owned and published by the American Association of Retired Persons. The follow are examples of the 4 line classifieds ads we will run:

Grandparents see your Grandchildren daily: Free Long-distance and Videoconferencing. In spite of distance, XYZ brings the generations together in a way that nothing else can! Use the power of the Internet.
Internet Advertisement

XYZ will also be developing a website that will be registered with all the major search engines, specifically under the sections of computer/Internet hardware and software and under the sub categories of video conferencing and communication. Website advertising is critical to the success of XYZ.
Although the initial costs of the webpage design and the incorporated “Shopping cart” capabilities will be large (Est. $1000.00) it is imperative to have a major presence on the Internet. The Internet will provide a 24/7 marketing opportunity and the site will also allow XYZ to go into details about the system which would be much to expensive to do via print advertisement on a consistent and repetitive basis.

XYZ will aggressively build additional free web pages, which are available from AOL, Geocities, and a large variety of other free homepage building sites. XYZ will build these free pages, and register them with all the major search engines.
It is imperative that when a person enters the words “Videoconferencing” into a search box on Yahoo for instance that the XYZ website comes up within the top ten list for matches. Although ensuring this happens will be difficult and costly it is crucial to XYZ’s long term success. The Internet is a 24/7 marketing machine on which XYZ plans to capitalize.

Our current (and planned) line of selections supports military personnel, college customers and their families as well as Grandparents. The IBM camera itself is rugged durable and very light weight and small.


The following analysis is based on a twelve month forecast. We have also taken into account standard industry practice. It shows that our business is viable.


Currently, we will sell only one base camera with a street retail price of $49.99 (Office max and Best Buy). XYZ will be purchasing each camera for $33.00. The overall cost and profit for each package goes as follows.

Net Profit per unit or Bundle for XYZ

Individual package 105.00

Net base profit per package $53.00

Bundle 179.00

Net base profit per bundle $75.00

Marketing Strategy

Note it is XYZ’s belief that the additional sales of the bundles at a lower profit margin will help fuel the popularity of videoconferencing among customers and friends and family of XYZ customers. This will help boost the “Word of mouth” sales. XYZ will give an additional incentive to purchase cameras packages by including a 10% off transferable coupon in every individual and bundle package. The coupon is meant to be passed on to a friend who will then also receive a 10% off coupon which they can then pass on to another person and so on. This pricing and marketing strategy is designed to build a “Virtual Network” of people. It is XYZ’s goal to use this multiplying or Domino effect to become highly profitable and allow future expansion into additional products and consulting in E commerce.

The retail industry in general has experienced steady and continuous growth in the past 10 years. On March 14, 2000 the Census Bureau of the U.S. Department of Commerce reported that advance estimates of U.S retail sales for February 2000 were $265.7 billion, an increase of 1.1 percent from the previous month and up 9.4 percent from February 1999.

According to the report, total sales for the December through February period were up 10 percent from the same period a year ago (the national economy has also experienced an unprecedented near decade of general economic growth).

The Internet is the major growth industry today. The use of the Internet as a communication device and an advertising medium will continue to increase, as computers become more user friendly. XYZ believes now is the time to enter the market of Videoconferencing on the Internet.

In 1998, there were an estimated 47 million Internet users in the U.S. according to This was an estimated 62% of the world Internet user population. According to Nielsen//NetRatings, in the month of June 1999, there were a total of 63.4 million total active Internet users in the U.S. and 105.4 million total U.S. users with Internet access. The average user visited 12 web sites and spent 7 hours, 38 minutes online that month.

Dateline: 07/02/2000 According to Nielsen//Netratings, in the month of June, 2000, the Internet user population was approximately:
130 million people in the U.S.
21.2 million people in Japan
18 million people in the United Kingdom
6.3 million people in Australia
1.7 million people in Singapore

XYZ will target all of potential 130 million U.S user by a aggressive email marketing campaign as well as aggressive print advertising and formal licensing agreements with Q.V.C. the HomeShopping Network and some of the very large retailers such as Wal-Mart and Kmart.
(Statistics taken from)

XYZ will have four initial target markets within the Internet community.

1. Military personnel:

2. College Student and their parents

3. Grandparents and their families

4. Distance learning colleges

On the following pages XYZ will discuss its marketing strategy for each target market along with listing various demographics about each.


When I was in the Army, from 1985 to 1989, I spent an average of $275.00 a month on my phone bill. Adjusted for inflation, this item remains a significant, but essential, expense for military personnel. For this reason,
XYZ believes that the military can potentially be a huge source of revenue.

In order to increase recruitment, it has recently been reported that the military services have felt the need to lower their educational standards for recruits. We believe that part of the reason for this is reluctance on the part of young people starting families to live away from family and extended family. The old sobriquet “Army Brat” refers in part to a child who grew up in a manufactured environment where the nuclear family was forced to rely only on its own resources for emotional support and companionship. With one of the parents away from even this isolated group for long periods, feelings of loneliness and disconnection often became intolerable. Children raised in such circumstances learned, to the detriment of their future relationships, to make no long-lasting commitments. Today people are becoming much more conscious of their need for extended family and long-term friendships. Means of fostering and strengthening these ties in spite of the need for mobility in military life are being sought by military personnel and recruitment specialists. A XYZ package could be used at all levels as an enlistment, reenlistment, new duty assignment or retirement bonus or gift.

It’s a phenomenon familiar to almost every family. As children grow to adolescence and then young adulthood, they tend to define themselves by stepping away from their parents, often ideologically and emotionally as well as physically. This can create problems from both sides, but all is resolved, forgiven and healed when the first grandchild appears! The urge to share that experience with one another in whatever way best bridges limitations of cost and distance will always be an irresistible. In addition, the relationship between grandchildren and grandparents is often acknowledged by social researchers to be one of the most significant in life. Relieved from the parental fears about “spoiling” or over-disciplining, grandparents often provide the growing youngster with a true experience of unconditional love and acceptance. This closeness does not lessen as the child grows up and leaves for college. As the youngster breaks away from parental control, the older generation becomes the bridge which holds the family together.

Grandparents will be ideal clients of XYZ. Life expectancy rates continue to climb. The computer is becoming less intimidating to people of all ages. As computers become more user-friendly, more people of all age groups will want to utilize videoconferencing capabilities, particularly if travel becomes difficult.

The Future of Distance Learning

XYZ is 100% dedicated to helping distance learning grow at all educational levels XYZ will initially focus on the distance learning and traditional colleges.

Experts estimate that one million students taking courses online in the United States alone, and that number is expected to double in one year.

According to the most recent National Center for Education Statistics survey, a third of the nation's traditional higher education institutions offered distance learning courses in 1995 and another quarter planned to have such courses in place by 1999. At the time of the survey, there were more than 750,000 students enrolled in an estimated 26,000 distance education courses at colleges and universities nationwide. And the numbers of both students and programs continue to skyrocket.

Explosion of Distance Learning in the United States.

The following is an excerpt from the 1998 Reauthorization of the Higher Education Act.

Promoting High-Quality Distance Education

"Valuable technologies also are important for opportunities in higher education at a time when college is becoming ever more crucial . . . making courses available at convenient locations; reducing time constraints for course-taking; making educational opportunities more affordable; and increasing the institution’s access to new audiences. This is why [we] proposed a number of changes to the Higher Education Act that will broaden learning opportunities . . ."

The Higher Education Amendments of 1998 significantly increase the number of students who can benefit from distance education by authorizing or adapting two administration initiatives: Distance Education Demonstration Programs and the Learning Anytime Anywhere Partnerships (LAAP) program. Distance education can help all Americans -- including workers, parents, people in rural communities and people with disabilities -- go to college by removing barriers of time and place through innovative uses of technology.

Only about one-third of all higher education institutions offered distance education in 1995, and they served fewer than one million students. While colleges and universities have been exploring the uses of technology, its capacity for increasing access to higher education has been limited because of restrictions on financial aid availability for distance learners.

Distance Education Demonstration Programs. The new law authorizes Demonstration Programs to increase student access to higher education and to determine the best way to deliver quality education through distance learning. Because the current eligibility requirements for higher education institutions do not address the special needs and circumstances of
distance learners, needy students are sometimes ineligible for financial aid. The Demonstration Programs will expand student aid eligibility for distance learners by allowing the Secretary of Education to waive specific statutory and regulatory student aid requirements for participating institutions. Among the requirements that may be waived are those regarding measures of an academic year, minimum hours spent in the classroom, and the percentage of an institution’s students who may be served by distance education. These changes will provide new flexibility for institutions to offer high-quality distance education programs. Up to 15 degree-granting institutions, consortia, or systems of institutions may participate in Distance Education Demonstration Programs during the first and second years, and up to 50 may participate in the third year.

Learning Anytime Anywhere Partnerships (LAAP). The new law authorizes the LAAP program, which will provide competitive grants to partnerships to ensure that high-quality learning opportunities are available to distance education students. The partnerships will develop and assess model distance education programs and educational software and find
innovative measures of student achievement that are appropriate for distance education. Eligible partnerships will include two or more independent organizations, such as: colleges, community-based organizations, technical institutes, adult education programs, school districts, and businesses. LAAP grants will encourage institutions and their partners to work together to provide high-quality distance education programs that challenge traditional geographic and institutional boundaries. The new law authorizes this program at $10 million in FY99, and the budget agreement provides $10 million in FY99 for this initiative.

The following is a partial list of Colleges and Universities, which offer distance learning courses. XYZ will market to purchase XYZ packages as part of a suggested REQUIRED course in Distance Learning and videoconferencing. As part of XYZ’s commitment to education and the further development of Distance education XYZ will donate 5% of the net profits from each institution back to the given institution in order to establish a fund/scholarship to encourage and develop distance learning at the institution. XYZ will intensely market EVERY COLLEGE AND UNIVERSITY on this list.

Stores, Inc. designed this guide for suppliers who have
expressed an interest in doing business with Wal-Mart,
SAM'S Club and/or Wal-Mart Interactive. This
compilation of information introduces you to Wal-Mart

philosophy and practices.

guidelines, Supplier Development is able to direct your
product or service more efficiently to the appropriate
area for review and evaluation. In addition, by complying
with Wal-Mart's requirements, which include basic retail
necessities such as UPC membership, you become
better prepared for not only Wal-Mart's marketplace but
for the retail world as a whole. A potential supplier who
submits a completed proposal packet is assured of a
reply by telephone or in writing from Wal-Mart within 90
days of receipt of the completed packet. By completing
the Supplier Proposal Packet, you are not guaranteed a
supplier number. All final decisions are made by the
authorized purchasing agent at the Wal-Mart Home
