4.0 Strategic and Market Analysis

4.1 Economic Outlook

This section of the analysis will detail the economic climate, the videography industry, the customer profile, and the competition that the business will face as it progresses through its business operations. Currently, the economic market condition in the United States is in recession. This slowdown in the economy has also greatly impacted real estate sales, which has halted to historical lows. Many economists expect that this recession will continue until mid-2009, at which point the economy will begin a prolonged recovery period. However, video production businesses operate with great economic stability as people will continue to host events and produce small commercials despite deleterious changes in the general economy.

4.2 Industry Analysis

Private video production is a smaller subset of the film production industry. These businesses are primary used for filming occasion events. In the United States there are approximately 4,000 businesses that specialize in filming occasion and special events. Each year, these businesses aggregately generate $1.7 billion dollars a year of receipts, and provide jobs for more than 20,000 people. The growth trend of this business has remained in lockstep with the growth of the general economy, and is expected to remain stable as long as the economy continues to grow at an annualized growth rate of two to three percent.

4.4 Competitive Analysis

This is one of the sections of the business plan that you must write completely on your own. The key to writing a strong competitive analysis is that you do your research on the local competition. Find out who your competitors are by searching online directories and searching in your local Yellow Pages. If there are a number of competitors in the same industry (meaning that it is not feasible to describe each one) then showcase the number of businesses that compete with you, and why your business will provide customers with service/products that are of better quality or less expensive than your competition.
