How To Start Your Airbnb Business Plan: The Elements

If you have read our previous article, you likely now have an idea of what you need to do before actually writing your business plan. Once done right, this document will help you lay out the structure of your business in a clear, orderly manner that will leave no room for uncertainty.

This article will enumerate the crucial parts that every business plan should have. When writing your Airbnb business plan, make sure to include the following:

Executive Summary

Also known as a summary, this portion is the first thing potential investors will see in your business plan. It recapitulates your business, its background, and the goals that you wish to achieve for it. It should at least answer the five W-questions (who, what, when, where, and why).

It should be no more than two pages long, and it should be written in a very clear and straightforward manner. Remember, this is the first document of your business plan that potential investors will read. This document aims to attract them to your business idea and get them hooked enough to read the rest of your business plan.

Operations Plan

This section of your business plan should include your Airbnb business's strategies, tactics, and operations. It is where you will discuss Airbnb's operations and give a general idea of how you will manage and implement them.

It will also include the procedures for getting your business up and running, the various operational procedures and processes, and the business's infrastructure. The operations plan should also have a detailed list of all the things your business needs to start.

Business Goals

The primary business goals should be specifically outlined in this section. It is not enough to say that your business will be profitable. You have to set a specific amount of revenue, the number of customers, growth targets, and other similar things that your business will do. This section should also include a list of secondary goals your business will achieve.

Unique Selling Point

The U.S.P. is what makes your Airbnb stand out from all the others. This section needs to explain what makes your business unique and what makes it different from the rest. It will be the main selling point of your business, and you need to be sure that you include it in your business plan.

Ideal Guest Profile

Introducing your ideal guest profile is a helpful way to get potential investors interested in your business. You should list the ideal guests that you want to attract and explain why these guests are the ones you will cater to. Your ideal guests should be the ones that can provide the best business for you.

Competition Analysis

The competition analysis is an integral part of your Airbnb business plan. This section will need to mention your main competitors and how your business is different from theirs. You will also need to explain how your business is better than theirs and how it will stand out from others.

Financial Goals

Financial goals are critical when it comes to writing your Airbnb business. This section should consist of a detailed analysis of how you will achieve those goals. It should also include a detailed forecast that shows how your business will perform in the near future.

Additionally, it should also include an estimate of the costs that you will incur. It would be best to be sure that you have the necessary funds to run your business.

The most important thing about this section is that it must be realistic. Do not make the mistake of setting your goals too high, especially if you do not have the funds to achieve them.


These are some of the essential parts of every business plan. When you finally finish writing your business plan, make sure to have people look at it. Not everyone is good at writing business plans, and there is a good chance you might have made some mistakes. Remember, this should be your first step to getting your business up and running. Make sure to do it right, and you will be on the path to success.
