Magazine Business Plan Kit

Only $39

Use this business plan template to develop a simple budget and business plan before you jump into publishing a magazine or website . . . and potentially lose your shirt! Our files work with your word processing and spreadsheet programs to help you build a customized business plan. They run equally well on a Mac or a PC, but please note: you must have spreadsheet software (such as Excel) to use these templates.

There are four files in the kit, and we can send them by email as soon as your payment is received. We can also send the kit on a CD. The four files are:

Market Analysis workbook (in Microsoft Excel) looking at other magazines and websites in a niche to assess your own idea. The line by line instructions teach you how to study competitors and determine your strongest competitive position.

Business Plan Outline (a Microsoft Word document) Chapter headings and detailed instructions help you describe your ideas and avoid leaving out essential information.

Financials Workbook (in Microsoft Excel) that helps you figure out how much profit you can make and how much startup cash you need. Line-by-line instructions are included so that you can easily complete the workbook, even if you know absolutely nothing about publishing.

Instructions (in Microsoft Word) provides detailed instructions for completing the template files, including instructions for getting cost estimates from printers, setting your subscription and advertising prices, calculating staff salaries, and other essential details.

This is a simple tool and easy to use, but it is packed with priceless advice and practical suggestions from Cheryl Woodard, the magazine startup expert who launched PC Magazine at a San Francisco kitchen table 25 years ago.
