Can you made sales forecasting that will be as much as possible close to the reality?
Back in October 2009 I have published simple sales forecast template, which can be used for entrepreneurs for better planning their next business activities. Because, simply without such a forecasting you can’t make your next year budget, you can’t know where to be placed your future investments, you can’t know is your business performing according to your plans…
Now, I’ve made update to free sales forecast template that was designed and published here on Entrepreneurship in a Box.
The change was in design and content of the template. That means there are two additional columns:
- Actual number of customers (number of customers that you have in the year for which you made forecasting) and
- Actual average sales per customer (average sales in dollars per one customer that you have realized in the year for which you made forecasting).
Why I add these two columns in the updated version of sales forecast template?
The answer is simple: better management with the data in the form. Now, you can easily check why something go wrong and where are your biggest fails.
Is it your customers? Or amount of average sale? This questions you can easily answer with this updated version of sales forecast template and make proper changes and improvements.
The changes and improvements that you will make in your business will bring your next forecasting to be as much as possible close to the reality. However, it means that you can better manage your future business projects, activities, investments…
