Developing Planning Modules: Compartmentalizing your plan by developing planning modules or "chunks" allows you to attack the plan in parts, yet still maintain a cohesive plan. I have found that developing an annual plan made up of quarterly targets _ thus becoming a rolling quarterly forecast financial model _ allows for a cohesive structure along with the nimbleness to react to market conditions. At the end of each quarter, a true_up process to align results to annual targets needs to be re_forecast and adjustments made.
Market Analysis: Before doing anything one should analyze the conditions or situations. So as in the business you have to analyze your market place and how things work in web hosting business. While performing a market analysis you have to keep these things in mind, what are you offering? Where you have to start? Why you choose this business? And how you will compete? Market analysis will clarify your targeted clients and competitor so you can define your web hosting plans keeping market trends in mind.
