T-Shirt Business Plan

If you are starting a T-Shirt business, there are several custom components that will set your company apart from the myriad of competition in the market. Investors and banks that see a heavily standardized plan that mirrors the competition and lacks a tangible competitive advantage as lacking a profitable future. Therefore, your business plan should quickly communicate what is unique about your T-Shirt business and outline how you will protect your competitive advantage. Omitting most of the generic things about your industry in exchange for what truly sets your company apart should be one of the plan’s main objectives.

Business Model

The business model for a T-Shirt business plan is what the company does to generate value that is either unique or superior to the competition. If there is not currently competition available, it is what problem is being addressed in the market and how your company fills the void. Focusing on the competitive advantage of your T-Shirt business, such as strategic partnerships along the supply chain or a marketing partner that is an SEO wizard will help you gain more investor attention.




Marketing Plan

The marketing strategy for a T-Shirt business plan depends upon its role in the supply chain and positioning in the market. In general, the marketing plan should communicate how customers will be acquired and retained. If this is a direct to consumer company, it may mean building a brand and having a product releases. A manufacturer or designer may be more concerned with targeting trade shows to enter retail stores or working with distributors to rapidly scale the product. Determining the appropriate pricing strategy for the retail market is also an important consideration, but a well-structured financial model can help you to make more informed decisions.




Financial Projections

Applying financial forecasts for a T-Shirt business plan will not only help to make potential investors more informed, but also assist your company to make more educated decisions in the strategic planning process. The financial projections typically include a three to five year set of financial statements including the income statement, cash flows, and balance sheet. In some cases, a break-even analysis or sensitivity analysis may be performed in order to more effectively determine the spread of risk and profit potential. The most effective way to determine the financial forecasts is to compare your T-Shirt company to others in the industry with more operating history, modified to your business model and future strategy.
