way to organize

There are some exceptions in this general rule. Recently, I was shown a plan for a chain if coffee shops. It included images of proposed locations, mockups of menus, and maps for different locations. While the plan was not as long, the graphics were of real value. You can use product shots menus, locations shots and product images as well as floor plans, floor plans, logos, signage photos and blueprints.

 Business charts are a great way to organize your information. Your important numbers must be easy to locate and comprehend. To emphasize the most important numbers, make use of simple business charts and summary tables. Include all the relevant information in the appendices, making them easily accessible. Also...

 Use bar charts to show, at a minimum, sales, gross margin, net profits, cash flow, and net worth per the year.

 Three-dimensional bars seem more polished, but two dimensional bars are generally more readable. Be sure that the numbers are obvious.

 Stacked bars can be used to view totals. If you want to visualize the sales total divided into segments, stack bars.

 Use pie charts to show market share and market segments.

 Display milestones and projects in horizontal bars. Labels are to the left. Dates are along the top. This is referred to as Gantt chart. It is essential to draw attention to the most important milestones and major tasks, as too many details can make them difficult to understand.

 Always put the source numbers next to the charts within a table of summary to allow readers to refer them quickly and easily recognize the numbers on the charts. The source numbers are easily accessed by readers of business plans. That's frustrating.

 It is mandatory to include charts in your writing. If the source numbers are not evident in the table of summary, make sure to indicate which appendices have the detailed numbers.

 Polish the overall appearance. The text should be clear and succinct. So take my advice:

a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a 

 Two fonts are recommended for text. You should use Arial, Tahoma, or Verdana for your headings. For the body text, it is recommended to use a standard text font such as Century, Times Roman or Book Antigua.

 Avoid small fonts. Certain fonts that are easier to read can be used at only 10 points. The majority of fonts perform better at 11 and 12 points.

 To separate sections, to differentiate the text from the charts and to emphasize tables, make use of page breaks. Always return to the following pages if you are unsure. There's no reason to worry about turning to the next webpage.

 It is important to use a lot of white space. You won't be able to read text that is stuffed into tiny spaces.

a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a

 Make sure to make use of your spellchecker. Make sure to proofread your text thoroughly to ensure that you're using a spelling error! Check your table numbers and text numbers.
