Here I shall be discussing the basic steps involved in writing a business plan: Executive Summary: The first step involved in writing a business plan is the executive summary. Here, include everything that you would cover in a five minute interview.
Summary Section: This section is where you will be able to attach or explain any detail not applicable to the previous sections. This section should be used to provide the financial statements of the Principle's involved in the business and any other data you think an investor would be interested in seeing.
The additional financial information at the end of this part of the plan should give a summary of your business's financial needs in order to grow, show its debt position, and state the owner's financial status.
So, although a detailed business plan may not be required for an online business, I am going to include it here so you can at least look at and consider each section and determine yourself if it applies to your business.
