Guide to Business Plans
There are two types of research that you may use to create your business plan:
- Primary research: involves conducting your own surveys
- Secondary Research: involves using resources already available, including the Internet, business journals, trade associations, trade publications, business directories, local or national periodicals, and books. Local libraries and even the local Chamber of Commerce may have business records that can be helpful.
This guide indentifies resources for doing research for your Business Plan. Use the tabs above to consult relevant topics.
