A recent article, 4 Tips To Protect Your Online Business by Cosette Jarrett says that launching an online business is easier than before.  Nonetheless, starting your first online business involves a lot of trial and error as you learn the ropes.

Here are simple steps to help you secure your new investment against potential threats.

1. Invest in business insurance

Whether you run your online business from your home or you rent an office space, it’ very important to sign up for business insurance to cover any potential damages and liability issues that might come up as you get your business up and running.

2. Form an LLC (Limited Liability Company)

LLC is a flexible business structure that protects business owners. Here are some of the benefits of LLC:

  • Personal assets are separate from your business
  • Limited liability for business debts
  • Increased credibility
  • Name protection
  • Tax flexibility
  • Deductible expenses

3. Protect your online business against attacks

As online businesses are emerging so are the cyber crimes, so ensure you have robust cyber security measures to protect your site against hacks.  Book a meeting room and schedule a meeting with IT expert to create systems that will protect your site from hacks and backup plans should an attack occur.

4. Get help and advice.

As a new business owner, it is very important to understand that you cannot run your business alone.  For instance, you need a mentor/adviser to build and grow your business, an accountant to file taxes for your business and virtual office solutions to help you with some office tasks like answering calls in your business name and handling of mail/package.

A recent article, How to Overcome Bad Impressions by Holly Skinner says that it’s inevitable to make professional mistakes, awkward encounters or mixed up your words in the workplace from time to time that leave you feeling embarrassed and give bad impressions.

Here are four tips to redeem yourself from a negative impression which is a critical skill for success in your workplace in team office space Orlando.

  1. Show a kind gesture when you have been involved in an argument or heated debate with a coworker during a team meeting in meeting space Orlando. For instance, bring them coffee the next day, or give praise to some of their recent work or compliment them in public at the next team meeting. By showing respect for them, you’re telling them a disagreement can remain in the past and doesn’t impact your view of them.
  2. If you’re bothered about a possible impression you’ve made, just approach the person and talk to them. Say something like, “I’m sorry, I realized after we spoke yesterday that I made a mistake. I didn’t mean it that way. What I really meant was…”.
  3. Admit that you were wrong and apologize for what you said. Sincerity and humility are good indicators of emotional intelligence, another essential skill for success in the workplace.
  4. Don’t forget to listen, too. Speaking openly about negative feelings can allow both parties to express where they feel frustrated and provides the opportunity to move forward. Ignoring negative emotions can grow deeper either on your own conscience or in the mind of someone else.

Conclusion

To sum it up, acknowledge your mistakes, talk openly and always communicate with sincerity and a smile. Indeed, working harmoniously with coworkers in a prestigious and well designed office space will yield greater efficiency and productivity. YourOffice is a leader in providing the most prestigious executive office space and shared office space for any size business.

A recent article, Print vs Digital: What is the Future of Books? by Jennifer Hanford says that many people are divided on the issue of print or digital book, and each side provide good points.

Let’s discuss.

Digital vs Print

Fans of digital books cite convenience and accessibility as key reasons to read an e-book over a print book. On the other hand, those who prefer print material make a good point that e-reading is hard on the eyes and doesn’t provide the same experience as traditional reading.

Does the e-book supersede printed books?

Not long ago, popular opinion forecast the death of print. With a 1260% increase of e-book sales between 2008 and 2010, it only seemed inevitable that electronic media would dominate. However, in 2015 a shift back to print began as publishers saw a 2% increase in paper sales and 10% decrease in e-book sales.

EBooks can be more cost-effective for small business

Print is an expensive endeavor and often is counterproductive for small businesses. Offering e-books through your website, and even free PDF’s is an effective marketing tool for your small business. By reducing the hassle and increasing accessibility, you’ll reach more of your target audience for less money.

Conclusion

Content will always reign supreme. No matter what the medium, people will always want more content. Keep track of the trends, but always consider your audience first. Giving them what they want is the sure key to success.  Likewise, working remotely is a big part of the future, thus whether you choose to work from home or rent office space by the hour, you need to provide products/services that will satisfy your clientele.

A recent article, 6 Things Your Competitors Can Teach You About Your Business by Candace Huntly says that as a business owner, you can learn from your competitors by watching what they are doing in terms of branding, marketing, PR, and just general business decisions.

  • Do they have branding continuity in various platforms?
  • Do they offer exclusive specials for social media followers?
  • What content has gained the most engagement when they post?
  • When and how often do they post?
  • When do followers respond on social media?

Working from home is awesome—it offers flexibility and autonomy. However, you need the right space where you can relax and at the same time be productive and efficient. A recent article, 7 Tips to Set Up Your Home Office by Kathleen Olson provides simple tips to help you create a home office that best works for you.

1. Look around and choose the best space for your home office.

Consider the space, lighting and privacy when choosing your home office. As much as possible, when designing office space choose a space near a window to use natural light and heat in the daytime.

You can also add some family photos, plants, and other items that help to create a more relaxed and personalized ambiance.

3. Utilize the right tools that will help make operating a home business more efficient.

For instance, install antivirus software to protect your computer system from cyber attacks, use cloud storage to have backup files or consider a virtual office to have a prestigious business address and a phone service to make you sound more professional.

4. Set strict office hours.

Don’t think that because you work from home, you can have all the time to do other things. You are working just like anyone else, so let everyone assume that you are working in an office space for rent to keep you motivated and uninterrupted to get a lot more done.

Conclusion

Working from home is a dream come true and following these simple tips will help you work efficiently. However, at times, working from home can be lonely.

A recent article, 4 Hard Truths About the First Year of Launching Your Business by Ramon Ray says that starting your own business takes a lot of effort, patience and determination. However, this does not guarantee success. A lot of first-time business owners are not ready for what to expect in the first twelve months; this can lead to failure.

Here’s what you need to understand if you’re planning to launch a business in Philadelphia Individual Office space.

1. You Need People

You probably think you can do it all on your own and you’re smart enough to start a business. But to spare you from a lot of headaches and to make your work easier, you need the right people or maybe a virtual receptionist to do some clerical tasks like answering phones calls/inquiries, handling mails/packages and bookkeeping. Also, it’s better to have a mentor/adviser with experience in your field who can guide you to avoid making major blunders.

2. Your business is built on customers

Having a brilliant idea will inspire you to launch your business, but does not guarantee that you will thrive. You need customers who would actually buy your products/services. Therefore, you need to do research about your clientele, to know them well so you can deliver exactly what they’re looking for. That’s the key to your brand’s success.

3. Profit’s not guaranteed

Perhaps in the first year of your business, you’ll be impulsively spending more money to launch and gain a foothold in your market. Also, you may spend your business funds to pay for your personal expenditures. Find other means to pay your own bills while growing your business. Not planning for this will certainly mean financial demise. Don’t mix business and personal funds.

Conclusion

Launching your own business requires thorough planning to help you succeed. Your business location is one of the most essential factors in launching your startup. YourOffice has come alongside hundreds of business looking for everything from staffed flexible offices to agile office space. We know your business is unique, and your office space shouldn’t be any different. Let us match the perfect space or service to fit your business needs.
