Executive Summary

 

Now, create an executive summary for your marketing plan. The executive summary should be brief—no more than two pages long—and should cover the major points of the plan.

 

Hint: At this point, you’ve already answered all of these questions, so what you need to do here is put the ideas together into a “snapshot” format. The executive summary is really a sales pitch—it’s the investor’s first impression of your idea. Therefore, as with all parts of the plan, write in a clear and professional way.

Once you have written the executive summary, cut and paste it so that it falls at the beginning of your business plan, as the very first element.
