Business Action Plan to Immediately Increase Your Sales and Profits

A key objective of this program is to provide you with a short-term (or mid-term) Business Action Plan. InnovatorsLINK accomplishes this goal through educational courses as well as Virtual Business Consultant Mentorship, including both group sessions and private ones. 

Unlike a Strategic Business Plan, the Business Action Plan describes the goals, actions needed, responsibilities, timing, and metrics necessary to boost your sales and improve your profits. These plans are generally done monthly, quarterly, or semi-annually. These plans can have additional benefits as well, giving new organization new energy and enthusiasm as employees observe the positive effects on the business generated by their own efforts.

To learn more about the Business Action Plan, read our Expert Summary on the subject

As part of our program, we require each participant to create one or more Business Action Plans, which they will implement soon after the close of this program. We consider this to be the most rewarding outcome of the Bootcamp.

Virtual Business Consultant (VBC) Mentorship

The month-long InnovatorsLINK Bootcamp program includes four group sessions conducted by InnovatorsLINK Virtual Business Consultants (VBCs). These VBCs are experienced business executives and small business consultants.  

VBCs will conduct live business seminars on topics like Business Action Planning, Design and Usage of Dashboards, Making Timely Organization Decisions, and more. The VBCs will also offer one-on-one consultations with all participants to help them with their individual issues.

Bootcamp participants will also receive free premium access to LivePlan and six months of their customer service – a $240 value. VBCs will instruct participants on using LivePlan to develop their individual Business Action Plans.

Bootcamp Courses

The InnovatorsLINK Bootcamp consists of an introduction and 10 courses in total. Each course can be completed in between 15 and 38 minutes, with a followup quiz to test your knowledge and understanding of each topic. Each course also recommends additional support material. At the end of the Bootcamp program, we will provide each course participant with a notebook of hardcopy PowerPoint slides and scripts.

The Bootcamp program can easily be completed while maintaining your current work schedule or other activities. The whole program will take participants 3-5 hours per week over a four-week period.
