As one of the leading business plan writing companies in the United States we continually get clients from all around the United States. A small minority of these clients might have had some unfortunate bad experiences working remotely with other freelancers. These clients (with reason) insist that working with business plan writers locally and near them is the only thing that matters to them. Unfortunately, this strategy is often not the best strategy. Although, being in the same city or room can provide minor advantages over remote work. Creating a business plan is an important role and clients should prioritize skills, track record and experience over being in the same city.

So what should be prioritized when hiring a business plan writer?

1. Find someone who is well rated and experienced

At GoBusinessPlans we have completed more than 3,000 business plans for clients. We have successfully completed projects in almost every industry imaginable. This experience and track record allows us to put together business plans that are much more complete and detailed compared to a business plan writer that might be local but has put together less than five projects in their career. Reviewing client testimonials and reviews for the business plan writer is also extremely important.

2. Market research access

Secondly, working with a larger firm like GoBusinessPlans makes a lot more sense than hiring a local business writer because of the amazing market research access we have. We have access to nearly every major market research database, Access that is expensive and a smaller local business plan writer might not be able to afford.

3. Thoroughly review business plan samples

Thirdly, before hiring a local business plan writer its extremely important that your team thoroughly request and analyze business plan samples completed by the specific business plan writer. At the end of the day, the quality and detail of the prepared business plan and most importantly the results generated by the business plan should be prioritized over whether you hire a local business plan writer or a larger business plan writing company like GoBusinessPlans.

No, it’s not that we have anything against clients choosing local business plan writers. Completing a business plan is a fairly complex process and in almost 99% of the cases hiring a experienced and larger business plan writing company can be more advantageous than hiring a freelance or small local business plan writer.
