Financials (1-2+paragraphs): Using resources available to you, what is the total potential market value of your business/product/service? Project a 5-year financial business model for your venture. Think about sunk costs verses prospective costs. (As a start-up, remember it is acceptable that initial years may not make a profit and may even have an initial loss.)

Fundraising(1+paragraph): If you need to fundraise to sustain operations, in what order and how will that be done? You could potentially tie this into your financial projections as long as it is a clear distinction of raising verses spending on diagrams.

I uploaded the company's information, please write about a business plan for the company, CapeQueen Cosmetics; Financial and Fundraising part.

Executive Summary

Providing chemical-free, all natural and highly effective skincare products as a healthier alternative for skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema and other skin sensitivities. Our cruelty-free and antioxidant-rich skincare products also help to naturally brighten dull skin, lock-in moisture, exfoliate dead skin cells, grow natural eyelashes, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and dark circles under the eyes, leaving each person feeling rejuvenated and with a youthful appearance.

Once I resolve my marketing, eco-friendly product packaging and capital challenges, I project making 50,000 by the end of this year.

Service

Intend to provide a skin analysis or questionnaire to qualify the best product in our skincare inventory for the appropriate skin problem

-offer sample

Once determined, we will recommend a product and provide a step-by-sept tutorial on how to prep the skin, warning disclosures, shelf life, product storage, usages and maintaining a routine

We plan to send a follow up communication to seek customer satisfaction and or results

Also, follow-up to offer travel size items, discounts and digital gift cards.

After 1 week, will send last email asking for a customer review on yelp, google, social media page and/or website

3 months later send another email regarding refilling the container to reduce waste

Manufacturing

Proprietary information

Will distribute products through a distributor

Products will be mailed to customer or provided in-person at vendor affairs and hopefully soon-to-be brick and mortar

Products are made in a factory that uses ingredients such as almond nuts but not peanuts

Management

I am a 1 woman show. I am the owner, CEO, compliance manager, human resource department, customer service agent, technical support, distributor, accountant, event planner, project manager, learning and development instructor, marketing manager etc. Once I receive more capital, I hope to hire staff and put them through comprehensive training to fulfill some of the said roles.

I have maintained a cosmetology license for over 12 years. I am also a healthcare professional currently pursuing a nursing degree and a certified phlebotomist seeking to learn more about the human body, anatomy, physiology, chemistry etc. so that I can continue to enhance and improve my products over time- providing the best skincare for all.

Financial Management

I have invested 100% of my own money leaving me with no debt

I have invested over 20,000 into the business over the past 2 years

I plan to acquire better marketing strategies to increase exposure and sells

My manufacturer can make customer product labels/silk printing and boxes which will cut down my expense for shipping and label expenses tremendously

1000 minimum for custom boxes and silk printing/labeling

Start-Up/Acquisition Summary

Start up cost has been significant and I lost thousands on in-effective marketing

Marketing

My target audience is adults, teens and even toddlers who require sufficient moisture that is chemical-free and that lasts. I target these audiences on social media. Have not done a family and friends referral system yet. Have not offered gift cards. I’ve only advertised coupons on social media

Market Analysis

The skincare market is growing. It falls in line with the beauty industry which is a multi-billion-dollar industry. The need is there. I plan to use beauty influencers that are within my budget to help market online I also plan to offer travel sizes and friends and family discounts. I plan to spend 500.00 a month on marketing

Market Segmentation

My target market is segmented a little. I plan to open my brick and mortar in Napa or Walnut Creek, CA due to the high quality and reputation of my products; however, all my products are available online and accessible to everyone including those who don’t have access to such high-quality skin care. Additionally, anyone can sign up for After Pay when they checkout online and their total is split into 4 installment payments, so everyone has access to the buy now pay later payment option if they qualify.

Competition

My biggest competitors are brands that are in Sephora, Ultra, Walmart, Walgreen and Target. Those brands already have loyal customers. Some cosmetic brands have watered down their prices giving them an advantage where people will sacrifice quality for affordability. Other brands are founded by celebrities, and I can’t compete with that. Once thing many of competitors don’t have is a personal, real life, unpaid, unfiltered and highly relatable testimony regarding a chemical-free alternative for people with skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema.

Pricing

My prices are on the high end due to how much product the customer receives, the quality, the invaluable benefits, the little to no risk or side effects, and the problems it solves. However, I do offer the buy now and pay later option which makes my products still affordable for even the tightest budget while no impact to my revenue and worth.

Advertising and Promotion

I need assistance in the advertising department. I am the photographer for 80% of my pictures and my advertisement’s minimal results reflects my lack of advertisement skills. Currently seeking help on advertising and marketing and possible outsource options.

Strategy and Implementation

Plan to apply for several grants to gain capital

Increase 680 credit score to possibly qualify for a business loan

Refinance high interest loan

Gain certifications

Participate in vendor affairs to gain capital and for exposure for small cost

Win grant

Then sign a deal with ecofriendly packaging company who is willing to complete the silk printing on the jars and ship directly to my manufacture for filling and packaging.

Have manufacture create custom boxes – add UPC barcode to boxes

Manufacturer agree to produce 20-25 k in 3-4 weeks lead time

Sign rental lease or purchase commercial real estate deed for brick and mortar

Set up payroll, unemployment and workmen’s comp account

Higher 10-20 employees

Increase marketing and advertising budget

Offer new and improved products

Partner with nonprofit organization for domestic violence, foster care youth, abuse victims and child illness to give back to my community

Determining Start-Up Capital

Begin by filling in the figures for the various types of expenses in the cash flow table on the following page. Start your first month in the table that follows with starting cash of $0, and consolidate your “cash out” expenses from your cash flow table under the three main headings of rent, payroll and other (including the amount of unpaid start-up costs in “other” in month 1). Continue the monthly projections in the table that follows until the ending balances are consistently positive. Find the largest negative balance—this is the amount needed for start-up capital in order for the business to survive until the break-even point when all expenses will be covered by income. Continue by inserting the amount of needed start-up capital into the cash flow table as the starting cash for Month 1.
