2.2 Start-up Summary

   [Company Name] offer value, a full range of business and home office services all at competitive prices.
   Profitability, of course, depends on many variables. The location, level of service, promotional efforts and the
   management skill of the owner are just a few of the many factors that will ultimately determine the level of
   profit.

   Many expenses in this business are fixed; they stay constant regardless of the sales generated. The following
   table lists typical FIXED cost categories and it provides a model to use in determining what the costs will be.
   Therefore, a few key VARIABLE cost categories will determine how well the store performs.

   COST OF GOODS AND SERVICES
   - A well run pack and ship / mailbox / business services center will typically have an overall cost of sales of
   about 42% (Bizminer Industry Analysis, December 2008). This includes merchandise cost and the costs
   associated with packing, shipping, and all other services that the store will provide.

   WAGES
   - You should strive to keep overall labor costs (including a salary dedicated to the owner if you are going to
   work the store full time) at no more than 16% of sales (Bizminer Industry Analysis, December, 2008).

   SALES
   - Sales level is the other key factor that will help determine profit level. Sales per square foot will vary from
   location to location and from storeowner to storeowner based on a myriad of factors. The size of the
   community, general customer traffic of the shopping center, store location, proximity to the anchor, previous
   business ownership, management and merchandising experience of the owner, and personal daily
   involvement of the storeowner are just a few examples of the variables that will determine level of sales.

4.0 Market Analysis Summary

   The [Company Name] has three main customer groups:
      shipping customers
      Mail Box customers
      fax customers

4.1 Market Segmentation

   The Shipping customers can be broken down into three main groups:

   • Shipping customers. The shipping customers can be further broken down into customers who have
   packages ready for shipment, and those that require a packaging
   service. The typical customer that needs a package shipped is someone who does not have access to ship
   packages at work and the Post Office is not convenient, or they need to ship via UPS. The other subgroup
   requires items to be packaged for them. The items are typically unusually sized, or may be quite fragile and
   they want an expert to package it to absolve them from liability. typically enticed by a shipping option that is
   fast and convenient, two things that do not describe the Post Office or a regional UPS shipping center as.
   Additionally, there are the customers who are in need of packaging for an item. Americans are working
   increasingly longer hours, and people do not have the time to package things up, this is especially true for
   weird shaped items or fragile merchandise. To do it right, these things take time--and time is a luxury that
   people are increasingly unwilling to devote toward packaging, they would rather pay someone to do this.

   • Mail Box customers. This is a segment of customers that is not increasing in significant amounts (although
   eBay transactions have boosted use in this area), but there are customers that require Mail Boxes and it does
   not take up much space to offer the service.

   • Fax customers. This segment has a steady demand for fax transmittal services. Although many thought the
   use of email would reduce the number of transmittals done via the fax, oddly, this has not happened yet.

4.2 Target Market Segment Strategy

Customers can come from all age groups, male and female, all races, every income level and can be local
residents or tourists to the area. That is why the marketing plan started at the customer relations; by keeping in
mind, if employees can create a great atmosphere the customers will return.

The full-time manager is a vital part of the management team, by assuring that customer satisfaction is provided
and gathering information from the public about the types of needs the clients have. This can provide the
company with the means to stay in touch with the community and ready to meet those desires

4.3 Industry Analysis

Currently there are several different companies that offer a similar service offering of Shipping. They are typically
located in high traffic areas. They provide Mail Box service as well as fax and shipping. These different
companies offer a commodity-like service. People tend to make choices based on convenience. Market research
indicates that consumers perceive little difference between competitors, and there is little loyalty that customers
display toward a specific store other than convenience.

                                                                       [COMPANY NAME]
                                                                                                     28, 2010


5.3 Marketing Strategy

   Our marketing strategy will focus heavily on sales promotion, niche positioning in the market and customer
   service with loyalty and retention in sales.

      The marketing budget will not exceed 5% of our gross annual sales.

      Our promotions will always stay in tune with our company objectives and mission statement.

5.4 Sales Strategy

   The sales strategy will be based on work flow efficiencies and superior customer service.

   1. Work flow efficiencies. Typically, when competitors send a package using either UPS or USPS, they
   enter the information into software from the specific shipping vendor (i.e. UPS). Once the information is
   entered into the UPS software, the software generates the shipping tag and corresponding price. The
   customer pays the amount and leaves. Now the employee must enter all this information into the computer
   software to track the transaction. Handling the transaction twice is inefficient. [Company Name] can offer
   slightly better prices and margins by making this process more efficient. This will be done with special
   software that takes the information from the UPS and USPS software and automatically transfers it into the
   back-end software. This will cut time spent on tracking transactions in half and improve accuracy as the
   number of times the information is entered increases, there is an increase in the likelihood of errors.

   2. Superior customer service. This will help boost sales as people become accustomed to The level of
   service and become a return customer, developing a long-term mutually beneficial relationship. Typically
   people that send packages do so with some frequency. If they buy things over the Internet or by phone, they
   do not do so on isolated occasion, they do so with some regularity.

5.4.1 Sales Forecast

    The following table and chart give a highlight on forecasted sales. We expect sales to start off conservatively
    and increase extensively during the Christmas holiday shopping season. The first month will be spent setting
    up the business. There will not be any sales activity during this time period. By the second month the store
    will be open to customers and they will begin to trickle in. It will not be until months four and five that there
    becomes a steady stream of customers. For the shipping and fax service expects a steady increase in
    business. For the Mail Boxes, there will be a steady increase until the boxes are near full utilization and then
    there will be a plateau of sales activity from the boxes.

6.0 Management Summary

    The management is made up of the owner and one other member who still needs to be added. This plan calls
    for the owner to concentrate efforts firstly on sales. The many administrative functions will become the
    primary focus of the other team member.

6.1 Personnel Plan

    The sales targets can only be reached if the owner's time is freed up to spend virtually 100% of her time
    selling to new customers and managing the accounts she has already sold to. This means that a capable
    individual must be added as soon as possible to handle the administration. It is assumed that such an
    individual can be employed for a salary of $2,000 monthly. Manager's salary will begin to be drawn in FY
    2013.

7.4 Projected Profit and Loss

    We predict advertising costs and consulting costs will go up in the next three years. This will give us a profit-
    to-sales ratio of nearly 25% by the year 2013. Normally, a start-up concern will operate with negative profits
    through the first two years. We will avoid that kind of operating loss by knowing our competitors, our target
    markets, industry direction, and the products we sell.

    Note that we predict we will exceed our objective of 65% gross margin by the year 2015.

7.6 Projected Balance Sheet

   All of our tables will be updated monthly to reflect past performance and future assumptions. Future
   assumptions will not be based on past performance but rather economic cycle activity, regional industry
   strength, and future cash flow possibilities. We expect solid growth in Net Worth beyond the year 2013.

7.7 Business Ratios

    We expect our net profit margin, gross margin, and ROA to increase steadily over the three-year period. ROE
    will decrease due to lower equity needs and higher cash inflow. Our net working capital will increase, proving
    that we have the cash flows to remain a going concern. The following table shows these important financial
    ratios.

THE MATERIALS, EVEN IF DOCSTOC HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. They are for
guidance and should be modified by you or your attorney to meet your specific needs and the laws of your state or jurisdiction. Use at
your own risk. Docstoc® is NOT providing legal or any other kind of advice and is not creating or entering into an Attorney-Client
relationship. The information, reports, and forms are not a substitute for the advice of your own attorney. The law is a personal matter
and no general information or forms or like the kind Docstoc provides can always correctly fit every circumstance.

Note: Carefully read and follow the Instructions and Comments contained in this document for your customization to suit your specific
circumstances and requirements. You will want to delete the Instructions and Comments from open bracket (“[“) to close bracket (“]”)
after reading and following them. You (or your attorney) may want to make additional modifications to meet your specific needs and the
laws of your state. The Instructions and Comments are not a substitute for the advice of your own attorney.

◊ Where within this document you see this symbol: ◊ or an instruction states “Insert any number you choose◊,” or something similar, or
there is a blank for the user to complete, please note that although Docstoc believes the information or number may be any that the user
chooses, and that there is no law governing what the information or number should be, you might want to verify this, including by
consulting with your own attorney practicing in your state. Because the law is different from jurisdiction to jurisdiction and the laws are
subject to change, Docstoc cannot guarantee—and disclaims all guarantees—that it is correct for the information or number to be
anything that the user chooses.

The information, forms, instructions, tips, comments, decision tree alternatives and choices, reports, and services in and through Docstoc
are not legal advice, but are general information / forms on general issues often encountered designed to help Docstoc users, members,
purchasers, and subscribers address their own needs. But information, including tips, general forms, instructions, comments, decision
tree alternatives and choices, and reports, no matter how seemingly customized to conform to the laws and regulations applicable to you,
is not the same as legal advice, which may be the specific application of laws and regulations by lawyers licensed to practice law in your
state to the specific circumstances and needs of individuals and entities. Some states, counties, municipalities, and other governmental
divisions, have highly specific laws and regulations, and our information / forms / reports may not take all those specific laws and
regulations into consideration, although we tried to do so.

Docstoc is not a law firm and the employees and contractors (including attorneys, if any) of Docstoc are not acting as your attorneys, and
none of them are a substitute for the advice of your own attorney licensed to practice law in your state. The employees or contractors of
Docstoc, who wrote or modified any form, instructions, tips, comments, decision tree alternatives and choices, and reports, are NOT
providing legal or any other kind of advice and are not creating or entering into an Attorney-Client relationship. Any such form,
instruction, tips, comments, decision tree alternatives and choices, and reports were most likely NOT prepared or reviewed by an
attorney licensed to practice law in your state, and, therefore, the employees or contractors could not provide you with legal advice even
if they or Docstoc wanted to. Even though we take every reasonable effort to attempt to make sure our information / forms / reports are
accurate, up to-date, and useful, we recommend that you consult a lawyer licensed to practice law in your state if you want professional
assurance that our information, forms, instructions, tips, comments, decision tree alternatives and choices, and reports; your
interpretation of it or them; and the information and input that you provide are appropriate to your particular situation. Application of
these general principles and wording to particular circumstances should be done by a lawyer who has consulted with you in confidence,
learned all relevant information, and explored various options. Before acting on these general principles and general wording, you might
want to hire a lawyer licensed to practice law in the jurisdiction to which your question pertains. The information, forms, instructions,
tips, comments, decision tree alternatives and choices, and reports, available on and through Docstoc are not legal advice and are not
guaranteed to be correct, complete, accurate, or up-to-date. Because the law is different from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, they are subject
to changes, and there are varying interpretations and applications by different courts and governmental and administrative bodies, and
Docstoc cannot guarantee—and disclaims all guarantees—that the information, forms, and reports on or through the site and services are
completely current or accurate. Please further note that laws change and are regularly amended; therefore, the provisions, names, and
section numbers of statutes, codes, or regulations, and the types of permits or licenses within any forms or reports, may not be 100%
correct, as they may be partially or wholly out of date and some relevant ones may have been omitted or misinterpreted.
Docstoc is not permitted to engage in the practice of law. Docstoc is prohibited from providing any kind of advice, explanation,
opinion, or recommendation to a consumer about possible legal rights, remedies, defenses, options, selection, or completion of
forms or strategies.
Communications between you and Docstoc may be protected by our Privacy Policy (http://premium.docstoc.com/privacypolicy), but are
NOT protected by the attorney-client privilege or work product doctrine since Docstoc is not a law firm and is not providing legal
advice. No Docstoc employee, contractor, or attorney is authorized to provide you with any advice about what information
(again, which includes forms) to use or how to use or complete it or them.
