Wise Business Plans Now Helping Seasonal Businesses Plan Year-Round Success

Share Article

Seasonal businesses can look like a dream-come-true from the outside: Be your own boss, work hard for a few retail-friendly months of the year and then live off the profits. But a strong seasonal business requires careful, deliberate planning to create year-round success.

Being armed with the most up-to-date market research, alongside information on past performance, is invaluable.

"Holiday or summer businesses often seem to sprout up overnight, but they're really the result of many months of preparation and nurturing," said Joseph Ferriolo, director of planning industry leader Wise Business Plans, which provides individualized, custom-designed business plans for startups and expanding companies. "It takes a lot of preplanning to get set up and ready to go quickly and efficiently, maximizing the limited time your business has to interface with customers."

Cyclical businesses have specialized personnel requirements and concerns, as well, he said.

"These businesses hire for short-term positions, so they often have to do a complete rehire each year," he said. "Having an organizational chart and knowing your company's overall staffing requirements well in advance are musts."

An ever-changing field of competition can also be an issue for seasonal companies, requiring a careful evaluation of not only existing companies in the market but new trends and consumer preferences for each busy season.

"Even if a competing new business only pops up for one year and then never comes back, it affects your bottom line," Ferriolo said. "Being armed with the most up-to-date market research, alongside information on past performance, is invaluable."

Wise can not only provide an initial business plan for seasonal startups, but can also help clients update previously crafted plans.

"A business plan is a living document. Our experts can help you revitalize and regroup to start each business year -- and each season -- off strong."
