A recent article, Some Tips Before Moving a Home-based Business to Commercial Space by Allen Buchanan says that many businesses like yours were started with two things— a great idea and a corner from home.

As your business grows, you are thinking that moving from home to Agile Office Space would be a wise decision.

Here are some issues to consider as you move your business into a commercial real estate location.

Expenses to consider

You have little overhead with a home-based business. However, once the business leaves the home, you’ll need to consider paying a commercial rent plus utilities such as light, water, internet, phone and janitorial.

Most commercial landlords will entail a lease term of one year or more, therefore your business is committed for this amount of rent.

Permits to secure

Your business will require occupancy permits to operate the business from a commercial location. If the operation involves a manufacturing process, plan on this taking some time to get this permit as well.

Location to consider

Working until 2 a.m. is not as easy as staying up past your bedtime at home if you move your business to an off-site location.

You cannot work in your pajamas – and go to work in the spare bedroom anymore. You must dress up, drive, and potentially greet employees. Find a location as close to home as possible. This will save on your commute time.

To rent or buy

You don’t want to commit yourself to a location that you could outgrow in few months, therefore to lease a virtual office or coworking office space is recommended.

Buying a location makes sense but not right away. Lease a spot, get the business stable, hire some workers, make some more money, and look to buy down the road.

Conclusion

Working from home is convenient and economical but as your business thrives, you need to consider a workspace solution that will help you with complete amenities. YourOffice offers you a wide choice of office and workspace solutions: flexible office space, team office space and virtual office packages. You’ll have access to a complete array of office support and concierge services as well as state-of-the-art business technology.

A recent article, 7 Awesome Tips to Take Your Start Up to the Next Level by Cormac Reynolds believes that your business will not always be a start-up but will level up eventually, thus goals setting and planning is vital to your success.
Here are 5 tips that will help your business get to the next level.

  1. Review your plans regularly

Review and re-assess your goals regularly to see what is working well and what is not. For example, are your plans still applicable? Are you still going in the right path?  Treat your goals and plans as a “work in progress document”.

  1. Find a mentor

A mentor is the perfect person to help in getting your business to the next level. They have adequate experiences and skills to advise and help you on the best approach to take.

Once you’ve found the mentor that agreed to help you, you can rent a meeting room and make a schedule for meetings.

  1. Create Social Media and blog

Social Media and blogging are great marketing tools. You can get an expert to help you in building an online presence and build up your reputation online.

  1. Consider a better workplace solution

A workspace solution like Team Office Space or Agile Office Space with complete amenities to collaborate with your team is a great boost to efficiency and productivity.

  1. Be a ‘Limited’ company

In a limited company your assets and liabilities are protected within the umbrella of the company—a limited umbrella protects you and your business from financial risks.

Some advantages of a limited company are reduced risk, flexibility and improvement in reputation.

Conclusion

Does marketing technology fascinate you? Do you become so enchanted that you forget the basics? Whether you are using a traditional campaign or a digital one — business owners should always keep marketing basics top of mind.

“You always need to keep the basics in stock. And no matter how fancy you’re getting, the basics still matter”,Drew McLellan’s grandma used to say, author of “Don’t forget the marketing basics”.

We are all guilty of jumping on the latest marketing bandwagon. As a result, we overlook business development fundamentals:

Vital Marketing Basics

  1. Marketing Plan and Budget

You need to have concrete plan and a sufficient to market your business in serviced office space consistently.  A plan helps you stay on course, even when you’re short-handed or swamped. Marketing success does not happen by accident.

Without a budget, a concrete, viable plan is a pipe dream. Let’s face it, a million dollar marketing plan would do significantly better than a $5,000 plan.

  1. One Advertising Message

Some business owners get excited and want to start multiple marketing messages fearing they might never get another round at the audience from plug and play offices. We know that ineffective ads are self-fulfilling prophecies.

Regardless of the marketing approach you employ, ensure you have one captivating message. Focus on that point and nothing more.

  1. Marketing Timing

Just like the wise advice about investing – you should give up any hope of being able to precisely time your marketing. Very limited businesses in full service virtual offices can forecast with even a modicum of certainty when someone is going to become a customer.

You need to be creating consistent marketing “deposits” so that whenever the market rises, a prospect is ready to buy – and you’re there and top of mind.

  1. Focus on Your Existing Customers

Going after new leads is never wrong; however, marketers should always remember that a big portion of their sales come from existing customers in full service virtual offices.

Statistics prove current clients are more likely to purchase more products from your company.

Conclusion

Knowing the marketing basics while keeping up to date on the latest trends is the very foundation of a flourishing business.
