Free Blog Business Plan Template

Recently we talked about how to write a blog business plan. As promised, I've put together a simple blog business plan template that you can use for your own niche or business blog.

Why Have a Blog Business Plan?

If you want to make money blogging, a blog business plan is a must. Business plans help you get a better picture of where your business (in this case a blog) currently stands, how you can better compete in your market, and how you can run a more profitable venture.

My blog business plan template helps you evaluate a variety of things such as:

  • The overall mission or concept behind your blog;
  • Your business structure (so you can alter it if appropriate);
  • Your strengths and weaknesses (so you can use or overcome them);
  • Your budget (so you can control blog costs and maximize revenue);
  • Your blog revenue streams;
  • Your business and marketing goals;
  • Your primary competition;
  • And much more.

Note: This blog business plan template doesn't go into the topic of blog content strategy. We'll discuss that more in the New Year, mostly at my new blog on blogging -- WritingForBloggers.com. It officially launches January second, but there's plenty of content there to get you started. Be sure to check it out.

    Thank you so much for this article. Being a marketer at heart, I was yearning for a blog business plan but as a new writer, I didn’t know where to start. You gave me a new perspective on structure, metrics and performance that I had not otherwise considered. A million thanks for not only sharing your expertise, but the template itself. It’s so much more powerful to see the template alongside the article.
