The ShopaMarket Business Plan
Why is a start up showing its business plan to the public?
My wife thinks that I am crazy,
she has saved and scrapped for all this time and at the last moment I have
decided to blow it. My friends think it is ridiculous that I am showing the
ShopaMarket business plan to the public including potential competitors.
Prospective investors think that showing my business plan to you is the worst
idea they have ever heard.
Honestly I am starting to doubt
my self, but what keeps me going is the fact that we have all been told by
friends, colleagues, family members, and our bosses etc. Do not do that,
do not do this …blah…blah. I want to be a living example to you that “if
you believe in something go a head and do it”. After all, anything that
does not kill you makes you stronger. In most cases you will have the last
laugh, because you knew exactly what you where trying to do, even if it seemed
strange to other people. Go on do it.
First before I go into details about the ShopaMarket business plan, here is a brief about ShopaMarket.
What is ShopaMarket?
Shopamarket.com is a website that allows retailers to inform shoppers about weekend retail sales offers. Think of ShopaMarket as a weekend retail sales offer site.
The reason why ShopaMarket offers weekend retail sales is simply because most people have more time to shop over the weekend and not during the week.
ShopaMarket.com was founded by Samuel Katabaazi who developed the website in his spare time while he was working as a security guard. Before becoming a security guard, Samuel had launched a virtual tour company called (iview virtual tours), which provided virtual tours for real estate, hotels etc. The company failed, simply because even if the technology was sophisticated, there was no market big enough to sustain the business. The lesson learned here was that it is the market that wins and not the product. Always find a market first and then tailor a product for that market. With those lessons in mind, Samuel stumbled upon an open source content management system called Drupal, which took him two years to learn. Samuel built www.shopamarket.com single handily with out any outside investment, the only investment he had, was £123 from his family expenses budget. Samuel and his family still own 100% of ShopaMarket. In the business plan Samuel highlights a few lessons he has learned and may be you will not do the same mistakes.
What problem is ShopaMarket solving?
Shopamarket is not exactly solving a problem. ShopaMarket is simply serving a need.
Ok, what need is ShopaMarket
If you visited any retail shop on any day at any time, you will find that most retailers always have a sales offer of some sort, the problem is that these sales offers can only be seen by customers who are already in the retail shop. Generally speaking, retailers are preaching to the already converted.
In a perfect world, retailers should be able to broadcast their promotional campaigns to millions of prospective shoppers. Shopamarket is providing retailers and advertisers the medium to reach millions of shoppers who are most likely to go shopping over the weekend.
What is in the ShopaMarket business plan?
The ShopaMarket business plan
simply tells you why ShopaMarket.com exists and the thinking behind it. We all
aspire to know what the founders of eBay, Google, Facebook, the Great Wall of China and the Egyptian Pyramids, where
thinking and why they created these things. Reading the ShopaMarket business
plan will give you a first hand insight about ShopaMarket. I agree that
ShopaMarket is nothing great and before you read this, ShopaMarket did not
exist in your mind, but it is true to say that all big things start small or in
obscurity. The first person who heard about the idea behind eBay or Google,
must have thought, I want to be part of that. Most of us do not get chances
like this one. Reading the ShopaMarket business plan gives you a chance to be a
participant in something that might be special one day.
In the ShopaMarket business plan you will not find terms like P.E ratios, R.I.O, Balance sheet gearing, Inter-segment revenues, price to cash flow analysis or Marketing lever analysis. The ShopaMarket business plan is not an accounting or financial text book, neither is it an investment proposal. The ShopaMarket business plan simply gives you an insight about ShopaMarket. At the end of reading the ShopaMarket business plan you will either feel good about your self that you contributed to ShopaMarket’s success, learned something or proud that you where among the people who read the ShopaMarket business plan and not just hear about it from other people.
In the ShopaMarket business plan you will find the following:

Ok, why should you get your self a copy of the ShopaMarket business plan, and why should you care?
The Simple answer is you shouldn’t. Unless you think there is something you might learn or you are just curious. It is not very common that normal folks like you and me read business plans of up and coming start ups. This privilege is reserved for investors and not all of us are investors. Here is the chance.
I do not know how you feel, but I dream of a day when I can put my name to something. Have you heard about The social Network movie? How nice would it have been if your name was part of the story?
Imagine seeing some unknown kid training for the Olympics, you take some time out to advice and also buy training gear for this kid, because you think this kid is got potential. How would you feel when this kid goes and wins the Olympics? Personally I would be proud of my self and I would feel like I put my mark on something. Shopamarket is unknown at the moment but might grow into something special. I think you are buying more than just a business plan. We all say to our selves, I wish I was the creator of eBay, the investor in Google, an employee of Facebook.
It is not too late. Here is a chance for you to put your name on something and be part of the ShopaMarket story. My hope is that reading the ShopaMarket business plan will inspire you to think differently in all your endeavours.
