Writing a Business Plan
While it may be tempting to put off, creating a business plan is an essential part of starting your own business. Plans and proposals should be put in a clear format making it easy for potential investors to understand. Because every company has a different goal and product or service to offer, there are business plan templates readily available to help you get on the right track. Many of these templates can be adapted for any company. In general, a business plan writing guide will recommend that the following sections be incorporated into your plan.
The executive summary is the first section that business plans open with, but is often the last section to actually be written as it’s the most difficult to write. The executive summary is a summary of the overall plan that highlights the key points and gives the reader an idea of what lies ahead in the document. It should include areas such as the business opportunity, target market, marketing and sales strategy, competition, the summary of the financial plan, staff members and a summary of how the plan will be implemented. This section needs to be extremely clear, concise and engaging as you don’t want the reader to push your hard work aside.
The company description follows the executive summary and should cover all the details about the company itself. For example, if you are writing a business plan for an internet café, you would want to include the name of the company, where the café would be located, who the main team members involved are and why, how large the company is, who the target market for the internet cafe is, what type of business structure the café is, such as LLC, sole proprietorship, partnership, or corporation, what the internet café business mission and vision statements are, and what the business’s short-term objectives are.
Services and Products
This is the exciting part of the plan where you get to explain what new and improved services or products you are offering. On top of describing the product or service itself, include in the plan what is currently in the market in this area, what problems there are in this area and how your product is the solution. For example, in a business plan for a food truck, perhaps there are numerous other food trucks in the area, but they are all fast –food style and unhealthy so, you want to introduce fast food that serves only organic and fresh ingredients every day. This is where you can also list your price points and future products or services you anticipate.
The market analysis section will take time to write and research as a lot of effort and research need to go into it. Here is where you have the opportunity to describe what trends are showing up, what the growth rate in this sector looks like, what the current size of this industry is and who your target audience is. A cleaning business plan, for example, may include how this sector has been growing by 10% every year due to an increase in large businesses being built in the city.
Organization and Management
Marketing and sales are the part of the business plan where you explain how you will attract and retain clients. How are you reaching your target customers and what incentives do you offer that will keep them coming back? For a dry cleaner business plan, perhaps if they refer customers, they will get 10% off their next visit. In addition, you may want to explain what needs to be done in order for the business to be profitable. This is a great way of showing that you are conscious about what clear steps need to be taken to make a business successful.
Financial Projections & Appendix
The financial business plan section can be a tricky one to write as it is based on projections. Usually what is included is the short-term projection, which is a year broken down by month and should include start-up permits, equipment, and licenses that are required. This is followed by a three-year projection broken down by year and many often write a five-year projection, but this does not need to be included in the business plan.
The appendix is the last section and contains all the supporting documents and/or required material. This often includes resumes of those involved in the company, letters of reference, product pictures and credit histories. Keep in mind that your business plan is always in development and should be adjusted regularly as your business grows and changes.

How to Choose a Phone Plan for Your Business
Every company needs an effective phone plan for their business. It’s important for all your employees to be able to communicate with each other. You also need to ensure that you can take phone calls from clients when they need to reach you. There are many office, VoIP and cell plans available, and your choice depends on what’s best for you. Here’s how to choose the best phone plan for your business.
The Types of Business Plan
If you’re looking for the perfect business phone plan, you need to think about which will benefit your organization most. There are loads to choose from and each have their advantages and disadvantages. It’s essential for businesses to have the best communications systems, because without this you’ll lose potential customers. Many people choose systems based on their convenience, but also look at how effective they are, the costs and if the system is up to date.
With so many options, businesses rarely know where to start. However, your primary goals will enable you to find the best phone plan for your business. Do you have a large team and need a strong internal communications system? Is saving money your primary goal? Here are some business phone plans, and their benefits.
Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP)
VoIP is taking over the business world, and many companies are ditching their landline service for the internet-based phone solutions. While making international calls on landlines is expensive, VoIP enables you to call anywhere in the world for no extra cost. Phone calls take place over the internet, and you can reach your employees wherever they are.
There are many VoIP solutions, including basic packages, options for mid-sized businesses and high-end solutions. It’s important to think about which solution is best for your business and avoid any hidden costs associated with high-end solutions. VoIP is great for companies and there is a range of technological benefits you won’t find with other providers. Search online to find the best VoIP providers.
Private Branch Exchange (PBX)
PBX uses hardware to route all calls through the office to and from a central connection. It connects all employees and enables easy transfers. PBX has many benefits, including its cost-effective solutions. Employees can make internal calls without the needs of connecting to an external network. This means that businesses can save money on phone calls, which is especially useful for small companies.
There are automatic capabilities, meaning PBX systems can automatically route calls. Basically, PBX offers an all-in-one solution, but it isn’t as technologically convenient as VoIP solutions. It depends on your needs, but remember PBX systems are best if you use over 12 phone lines. Smaller businesses might find that installing and maintaining a PBX system is too expensive.
Small businesses have one thing on their mind; money. They need to find cost-effective solutions to grow their business, but not bankrupt them. Most small companies use manual key-systems to route phone calls. As you add more lines, you’ll find a manual system less convenient and harder to manage.
Key systems are great when businesses are starting out, but if your business is growing then it’s best to choose between a PBX or VoIP solution. There are many positives to manual key systems, and providers are combining technology with the systems to make them better for small business owners to maximize their internal and external communications.
Is the price right? That’s what you should be considering. Many phone providers will offer comprehensive packages for both office and cell use. Combining these will save you money in the long-term and enable you to streamline your communication procedure. The more technology you want, the higher the price. You should weigh up the benefits of cost and convenience when making your decision.
Speak to providers and ask them what bundles they offer. You’ll want to supply your employees with cell phones if they travel out of the office regularly. Choosing a phone system doesn’t have to be complicated if you know what you’re looking for and consider your price limits.

Fair Use Policy applies.
Sharing on Team Plans A business customer must have a consumer postpaid plan (either voice or tablet) on their account (‘Primary Service’). This gives a customer the ability to add up to 9 Team Plans (either voice or tablet) on their business account so the included data (formerly known as Max Speed data) of the Primary Service/s can share with the Team Plans. Data capped at speeds up to 1.5, 2, 10 or 25Mbps is not shareable. If you cancel your consumer postpaid or tablet service/s on your account, your Team Plans will remain.

Vodafone Business taps scale and local know-how in SME growth strategy
Being a small and medium-size enterprise (SME) champion is not the only element of Vodafone Business’s growth plan. But its SME strategy has “progressed the most” and, in short, “is working,” said Fánan Henriques, International and EU Cluster Director at Vodafone Business, in an interview with Inform, in which he explained why the SME segment is central to Vodafone Business’s growth strategy.
The operator is now more than halfway through a four-year plan for the enterprise division, which it unveiled in early 2021 with the ambition to become an “SME champion” across its markets in Europe and Africa. The other three pillars are increasing its share of Enterprise gigabit connectivity, supporting the public sector digitization, and attending SOHOs growing business needs.
As part of its plan Vodafone aspires to be a trusted partner for SMEs rather than just a connectivity provider. To support its mission, the telco developed an advisory service for small businesses, called V-Hub, and built a digital Business Marketplace for its ICT portfolio. It has also made it easier for businesses to find what they need through digital customer engagement, which complements traditional physical channels in an omnichannel approach.
Henriques acknowledges that telcos historically have not done a good job of exploring the SME opportunity. However, he does not believe that the market is too fragmented and difficult for them to serve profitably.
“Telcos are the only scaled ICT players that have managed to crack into the SME market. Digital solution providers partner with us to access the market together. We have the channel capillarity and customer intimacy,” he said.
Vodafone’s Business Marketplace, which first launched in Italy in late 2016, has filled out its ICT portfolio beyond its own propositions, with strategic partnerships with cloud and security providers, such as Google, Lookout, Microsoft, as well as local providers. It is now available in all the operator’s European markets, with one exception that will be addressed this year.
However, Henriques stressed that the marketplace is not a “pure resale” shop. The operator offers solutions from third-party partners, provides a service layer on top, and advises customers via V-Hub so that there is “value-add” for buying from Vodafone Business. “Partnering is an important part of the strategy … but we’re not a reselling pipe,” he said.
Examples of some of the offerings that Vodafone Business has created are the “business boost” packages for small businesses that were introduced in May 2021. These include digital tools to help SMEs reach new customers and grow their businesses, such as digital marketing and e-commerce.
Global development, local execution
The implementation of the SME strategy exemplifies Vodafone’s centralized platform model for developing services across its markets. Products are designed centrally but the sales channels are managed locally. This enables the operator to scale its portfolio and operational systems while giving its local operating companies freedom to determine the go-to-market strategy in their countries because they are closer to the customers and the channel landscape varies from one market to another.
“We have a consistency of execution across the Vodafone markets with the solution platforms, propositions and engagement that leverages the scale of Vodafone, and at the same time we can make it local. We’ve done that in all the layers from proposition down to [customer interaction],” according to Henriques.
An example is V-Hub. Vodafone Business created the V-Hub digital advisory service in July 2020 to help SMEs better understand, build confidence and adopt digital tools to grow, protect and sustain their business. After initially launching in four markets (Italy, Germany, Spain, and the UK) in the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic, the service is now available in 14 countries and has had more than 5 million unique visitors to date.
Henriques said V-Hub is a “massive success in terms of customer engagement”, noting that the operator has a high rate of return visitors. “Visitors come back, and that’s why we know we are onto something very successful,” he added.
Vodafone Business has also helped more than 230,000 SMEs through online training courses and mentoring. The telco held a global virtual SME event in May 2021 that attracted 15,000 attendees. Vodafone Business brought in 40 experts and the content was streamed worldwide in four languages. Post-event, the content has reached 1.3 million people.
The operator has produced a global content library and the local operators adopt the content relevant to their markets, which is translated into local languages. Similarly, V-Hub offers a global technology platform so that operators in each market can adopt the digital advice service quickly, with little effort and investment on local development or delivery. This “out of the box” SaaS approach makes the advice service scalable, while still allowing for the locality of content and advisor support.
“It’s the enrichment of the two pieces that makes this powerful… It’s how we make the best of both worlds, and we’ve been very effective in doing that,” he said.
But the SME market is diverse, comprising companies of various sizes and spanning different sectors. How can a unified proposition approach meet all SME needs?
Henriques said one of the first things he evaluated when working on the business strategy was to determine if SMEs have different needs in each market, and the answer he found was no, the needs are the same.
“They all want to go online, they all need cybersecurity, or a fleet management solution. You would be surprised by the level of commonality there is across markets. There are small [differences] here and there. But [we realized] our strategy could become a lot more global than localized,” he explained.
However, it is also important to have good market segmentation and a solution portfolio with “the right building blocks.” Segmenting the market enables an operator to target services that are appropriate for different SMEs. “If you have the right building blocks, you can combine them and tailor them to different segments … depending on what the customer needs,” he said.
Vodafone ups its own digital game
The operator’s push into the SME segment is helped by some digital transformation of its own. The Business Marketplace is an example of “massive automation” because it allows Vodafone to launch a product once onto the platform and it becomes available across multiple markets, rather than integrating and launching in 21 markets, Henriques said. Similarly, the V-Hub operating model offers a centralized content factory where material is added once and automatically made available to the local markets.
Vodafone Business also revamped its self-service portals and e-commerce systems to allow SMEs to buy products and services digitally. Henriques said there has been “big progress” in this area and it has been implemented consistently across markets, resulting in “significant shares of digital customer acquisition and service.”
Another enabling factor for Vodafone Business is TM Forum’s Open Digital Architecture and Open APIs. For example, the APIs between the Marketplace and local markets are compliant with TM Forum standards. The operator is also looking to use the Forum’s APIs to “connect the marketplace into the commerce channel.” Another example is the operator’s app that has an abstraction layer and uses TMF-compliant APIs.
“For everything that goes into the digital space, we try to be TMF-compliant in terms of execution,” he said.

Vodafone Business Tariffs and Phone as a Service?
Procuring mobile devices for your employees can be complicated, including high acquisition costs, unplanned repair, mobile plan costs, and difficult device management processes.
Fortunately, mobile phone providers such as Vodafone also offer so-called “bundles” of the smartphone combined with a phone plan. This way, customers get both the hardware and the tariff from one hand.
However, in many cases B2B customers have overall more flexibility when opting for a “SIM only” phone plan which is not including the device. Why? These plans can be booked for shorter periods and are often available at lower preices – even when you deduct the monthly subsidy for the phone.
Telecom Expense Management and SIM-only Vodafone Plans
Here at Everphone, we focus on providing a hassle-free process with an all-inclusive solution for any business. By renting mobile business devices, Everphone offers the procurement of smartphones, repairs and replacements without any hidden costs. At the same time, your organization will benefit from the opportunity to go for SIM only phone plans , which helps a lot in keeping TEM ( telecom expense management ) costs low.
