Business Presentation

BUSINESS PLANNING

Business plans are a necessity in the eCommerce environment of small business. Most small businesses should have a business plan, but most lack one. Why? Some think that only expensive lawyers can create one and  thus, these businesses avoid what they think is a high cost. Others simply never find the time to develop a business plan. These businesses are run on autopilot without any direction. A business plan is a roadmap to continuous success. Would you head to an unknown location without a travel app on your phone or a roadmap? Of course not. Acceleration offers cost effective business plans starting at $250. Rates vary according to size of the business, time in existence, research, and other factors. Need a business plan?

CLIENT/CUSTOMER/LEAD GENERATION

 

The lifeblood of any business is consistent clients and customers coming through the door. Without a steady flow of clients or customers, businesses often fail. While word of mouth referrals has their utility in the start-up phase, a business requires more sources for clients and customers during the first five years of business. Acceleration can generate leads for your business from a variety of sources. Talk with a consultant about consistent client and customer flows.

After a business is formed, there are other continual services including those related to contracting. Every business enters into a contract of some type at every phase of its existence. Contract reviews, contract preparation, and contract evaluation are needed to ensure that a business is properly leveraged against a third party.

Acceleration offers services for copyright registration, trademark registration, service mark registration, alias protection, trade secret protection, and other related services.

 

BUSINESS VALUATION – GROWTH – EXPANSION

Why Is Business Valuation Unique?

 

In the early 1990s, balanced scorecards, business intelligence, web analytics and profit center management missed vital components for maximizing business value and leveraging potential equity. Older systems, like balanced scorecard and business intelligence/ performance, evolved from early use as a simple performance measurement framework but without the umbrella of business value - they missed untapped value resources.

 

Business value planning is a strategic planning and management system used extensively in business and non-profit organizations to align business activities to the vision and strategy of the organization, maximizing business value for more business equity.

 

Purely financial measures tell only the story of past events, without an adequate story for growth in vital value pillars and drivers of the business. After a business value plan is formed, strategic earnings move planning begins using two prongs as documented in the Harvard Business Review, “Two Routes to Resilience.” 1) future potential and 2) organizational values leading to probable earnings moves resulting in increasing personal equity for the Owner.

 

Acceleration offers these services to enhance the growth of any business and offer the business owner more options – to sell the business for a larger profit, succession planning, or restructure the business for market realities. Acceleration provides experienced consultants adept at these issues. Contact an Acceleration consultant for an extensive, complimentary review of your business’ valuation.
