The Value of a Business Plan in Managing Your FBO

In some of our previous blog posts, we have mentioned the need to develop a strategic business plan, not only as a way to define business goals, but also to help formulate your personal goals, such as detailing an exit plan from your FBO business.

As most of you know, if you want to borrow money from a bank, the SBA or other sources, one of the first things they will ask you for is a business plan. This alone is a good reason to develop one. However, beyond this basic need, a business plan can be much more and serve your business in many different ways.

FBO Marketing, Part 1: Low- and No-Cost Promotion

Did you know there are ways you can market your FBO with little or no out-of-pocket expense?

At our NATA FBO Success Seminars, we examine various aspects of marketing for an FBO. One of the most popular sessions is Marketing and Communications for Any Size FBO.

Many FBOs that attend our seminars believe they can’t compete with the big FBO chains because they don’t have the money and resources. To that, I kindly say, “Bunk”.
