DUBAI, Sept. 24, 2022 / — The team has been providing business plan solutions to businesses across various industries for over a decade now. Via this release, omnichannel consulting experts are reaching out to aspiring entrepreneurs and existing business people who are planning to start a clothing business with a solid business plan.

First fix the approach

The essence of a good business plan is to assess the strength of the business idea/project in question based on financial and business parameters. The objective is to evaluate the business idea based on financial projections. And the inputs for developing a business plan are obtained from the business model. Therefore, the business model must come first, then the business plan. YRC’s business plan writers follow a set of planned, extensive and organized processes to prepare these business and financial assessments and statements regarding the implementation of the business idea.

Assess initial investment needs

Here, YRC assists businesses in identifying and estimating their capital requirements and upfront expenses. These investments are essential to build the foundation of assets and operations needed to start a clothing business. These initial investments include expenditures for conducting market research, purchasing/leasing/renting/building physical assets (land, store, warehouse/CF, offices, etc.), purchasing technological and industrial solutions, etc.

Margin analysis

The margin is a derivative of the estimated buy and sell prices. But since clothing stores don’t usually sell a single product line, it’s the average margin that matters the most. The product line can have multiple product lines, each of which has multiple product types. Suppose a jeans brand can divide its product line according to gender and market segment. Women’s jeans may have higher markups than men’s jeans. The profitability of one product line may not compensate for the entire product line. The average margin does not tell you about gross profitability, but it does provide insight into the big picture and is particularly useful when sales in terms of units are expected to remain the same for all product types.

Estimated turnover

Sometimes it’s best to play it safe and be cautious about turnover expectations. This strategy works in competitive market segments. For example, the market for bandanas is extremely competitive in the state of Texas. Unless it has a strong value proposition, a clothing brand should tame its revenue expectations. But the same brand can expect better sales in a market where the trend of wearing a bandana is in. The difference between the two markets is that of fluctuating demand. Conventional markets for a product exhibit demand stability. But where such a product is part of a fashion trend, demand takes an upward spiral for an unknown duration. YRC maintains that the revenue estimation process involves a scientific, systematic and methodical approach. Subjective insights are essential to give meaning and direction to this estimation process.

Procurement planning

Purchasing planning is essential and aims to ensure that the required types and levels of inventory are constantly maintained in stores, warehouses and distribution centers. The information needed for purchasing planning comes from various sources such as merchandising strategies, regular demand forecasts, promotional campaigns, seasonal demand, budgeting, logistics capabilities, etc. YRC’s role here is to help companies plan and schedule their buying decisions. Having good procurement planning helps companies sort out the roadmap for a smooth procurement function.

Other aspects covered by YRC in developing the apparel business plan include salary projections, key financial ratios and indicators, cash flow projections, revenue and expense forecast statements, analysis break-even point, etc.
