Looking for clip art for business plan? There's no shortage of free or low-cost rights-released images online that can complement your narrative, but beware of going overboard with imagery in the document. Remember that for most bankers who approve SBA-backed loans or process paperwork for LOC extensions, the business plan is something that gets photocopied and sent to underwriting—content wins over fluff any day. That said, investors may well respond to a little flare, and there's no harm dressing up a plan if you know the reviewer is more likely to absorb it with graphics and pictures. So what kind of art might be appropriate?
• Designs of any proprietary products
• Illustrations for any patents you hold
• Pictures of your intended office location
• Photos of your team (headshots)
• Any clip art that directly relates to your products or market
Remember that substance is vital—having great photos is far less important than including all of the data necessary for a complete review of your business plan. This should include a close look at the market conditions, the state of the industry, your main competitive comparables, and the type of consumers who you'll connect with. You should also be able to outline the market need, your marketing strategy, and the way your executive team will help the company deliver on its promises. The plan also needs a three year pro forma model, at a minimum. Have questions about business plan content or design? The experts at MasterPlans can help you today: (877) 453-2011.
