Tattoo Business Plan

When creating a business plan for a tattoo company, several factors will combine to determine the success of your operation. For instance, finding a balance in the location between convenience and price. Forming at atmosphere that people enjoy going into given the target demographic you are targeting, and effectively promoting it. These unique elements combine to structure your business model and direct your marketing strategy – to be reflected in the financial projections. The following sections outline each area in more detail.

Business Model

The business model for a tattoo company is fairly straightforward, but depends upon several factors including the location, style of tattoos offered, and capacity. For instance, some tattoo parlors have multiple artists and a very large facility and others are smaller one-person operations. Both can be equally profitable, but the business models will be strikingly different and the plan must reflect these custom factors. Investors will seek to understand whether or not your tattoo parlor is uniquely positioned against others in the market in terms of the styles offered and location.

Marketing Plan

The marketing strategy for a tattoo business needs to focus on a regional demographic using both public relations, search engine visibility, and digital marketing. The marketing strategy should also include the overall branding and positioning of the tattoo business in order to immediately serve as direction for the rest of the promotional campaign. The initial launch will likely involve public relations, followed-up by digital advertisements on Facebook and Pay-per-click. Of course getting included into major directories like Yelp! and Google Places is a must. Encourage your initial visitors to write a glowing revenue, as it will be well worth your efforts.

Financial Projections

The financial projections for a tattoo business may be requested by investors to cover three to five-years of operating history. Investors will want to understand that you will be able to reasonably acquire enough demand to cover or exceed your overhead expenses. The highest expenses will be monthly rent and wages for any other staff, so these should definitely be accurate as possible. Additional expenses that will impact your break-even point include utility costs, insurance, and any digital promotions. Banks will seek to understand that you are making sufficient profits to cover the debt and interest repayments over the period of the loan. Therefore, the financial projections are specifically designed to communicate the capability of your company to do so.
