Training and fees
The seller of a business opportunity often provides a training program that is conducted at the business’s current location. For a week or so, the buyer will be able to experience a real operating unit.
The typical fee you charge for the business opportunity is a one-time payment. After the training ends, the buyer will be free to buy the opportunity on their own.

It consists of two main elements: the price that a person must pay and a confidentiality agreement which requires the investor to not share the business plan information.

While you will need to spend some time in creating the business plan for your company, this information is all you have learned from personal experience. You can also hire someone to help you write the documentation if you are not a good writer or communicator. There are many templates that you can buy online or in books. These templates will help you to prepare your business plan and manuals. These templates are often inexpensive and include boilerplate language you can customize to suit your business idea.
You should consult an attorney who is familiar with the business opportunity statutes before you try to sell your business plans. Your attorney will need to discuss four main areas. You must ensure that the structure for your business opportunity is not a franchise according to the federal and state laws. Your attorney will help you prepare the contracts necessary to sell the business opportunity. Your attorney will review the promotional materials that you plan to use to sell the opportunity. He or she should also explain the limitations of what you can say and cannot do during the sale process to ensure compliance with all laws and regulations. Your attorney will review your business plan materials in order to ensure that you are delivering what you promise during the sales process. This sounds a lot more complex than it is.

In order to sell the business plan to potential buyers, you will need to determine how you are going to market it. It is a good idea to look at other business opportunities that have successfully promoted the sale of their plans. Analyze internet-based and print media advertising and PR efforts, tradeshows, and other events promotions. Also, look at any other effective methods being used. It’s a good idea to establish mentorship relationships with others who have successfully used this route before you.
