Financial Forecasts

A 24 and 36 month financial forecast, complete with sales projections, resource allocation and investment calendar.

Why it’s important

Financial forecasts, 24-to-36 month sales projections, competitive and market analysis… Your eCommerce business plan helps you prioritize actions, take better decisions and maximize return on investment. This is as much about margins as it is about sales.

Simply put, a plan that uses realistic estimates and well-defined milestones is easier to fund.

How to use it

A realistic financial forecast will help you better plan resources and map out your return on investment. You will also be able to foresee marketing investments on a per-channel basis, merchandise return rates, conversions as well as human resources and capex needs.

The Roadmap enables the digital business plan to benefit from rigorous follow-ups as well as defining the entire year’s digital developments.
