Business plan

4 posts in this topic

Hello fellow actualizers!

I am around to have my business get started.

My plan is to extract and collect shooting range scrap.(I am working as a range instructor currently)

It's a pretty good work considering almost noone does it in my country :D

Please tell me your honest opinions about it.

I don't know anything about shooting ranges, but generally speaking your business plan should at least answer the following questions:

  • What need are you addressing?
  • What makes you different from current players in the market, i.e. what is your unique value?
  • Who are your customers?
  • What are your revenue streams? How are you gonna generate cash?
  • Who are your key partners?
  • What are your cost factors?
  • What kind of funding do you need?
  • How will you promote your business?
  • Via which channels are you going to reach your customers in terms of distribution and marketing?

I think if you can answers these questions well and you are also able to acquire at least one customer before you start who would buy your service, you are good to go.

Need: health and safety needs of gun ranges, talking on the physical level: richocets, lead soil toxication etc.

Another need: financial; how to turn a passive asset into revenue

 

Unique value: true honesty towards gun ranges: pay back percentile of profit I gain from recycling, but only after recycling

Customers: indoor and outdoor civilian and military ranges, either running or already shut down ones. 

Revenue stream: retrieve scrap metals, then sell them to recycling stations/smelters

Key partners: shooting ranges, recycling stations, smelters, environmental organisations (?)

Cost factors: world trade value of lead, percentile agreement on the scrap, transportation and workforce cost.

Funding: maybe environmental funding from government. Funding is only nescessary for the startup equipment.

Promote the business: only via words of others. Probably the best in the firearm industry.

Channels: real life visits and talking. 

 

So whatcha think? :)

Cool :)

To me it seems that this business heavily depends on your own sales skills.

So, I'd say, see if you can find someone who would be interested.

Best of luck :)
