    This is way to generic a question. IF you are looking for a traditional style business plan, then a quick google search will do wonders to give you some samples.

    As for a practical business plan.

    1. Answer "what's in it for me?' for all parties involved. You, prospects, customers, advertisers, jv partners....

    2. Take this quote into account..."Every sale has five basic obstacles: no need, no money, no hurry, no desire, no trust.” Zig Ziglar. If you fail to overcome these objections when it comes time to get your customers to part with money, you need to rework your plan.

    3. who has your customers and what can you offer them to get them to do business with you.

    4. what is your complete marketing / sales funnel?

    List building is #1- and then it's about how you're going to get people on the list; paid traffic, tons of content, etc..

    If you watch what the gurus do it's really very basic- they are constantly building lists and then they have traffic at the click of a button to test offers on, launch products, etc

        And what's the end goal of it? What you want to achieve? Do this for the rest of your life?

        Find where you want to get. The IM business plan will depend on that. And I mean in your life, in IM, with your websites... Everything. Once you know that the business plan will become easy to make.
