How Getting Out of Your Typical Office Environment Can Do Wonders to Boost Your Business
Coworking isn’t just about sharing an office with strangers; it’s so much more than that. In fact, coworking can be an integral tool in growing your business. If you currently work remotely or from home–even if you’re stuck in a traditional office setting–there are many benefits to transitioning to a coworking environment.
Here are five ways coworking can work in your favor:
1. Networking Comes Naturally
Coworking gets you out and about and around other business owners without even trying. Working from home or in a secluded office environment shuts you off from real, live people: people that want what you have and some that have just what you need to thrive as well. Oftentimes you’ll meet people in need of your services in a coworking environment, and vice versa. In any case, each connection you make at the office is potential referral material down the road, which just doesn’t happen when you’re working at home with your cats.
2. Your Meeting Spaces Are Measured For Success
You can’t score that big deal having a meeting at your kitchen table or your local Starbucks. It just doesn’t happen that way. At a coworking office, there are plenty of conference rooms and meeting rooms for use or for rent that will instantly elevate the level of your interactions with customers and potential clients. Tools like digital projectors, white boards and other office equipment are there to aid you so that you look more professional and more worthy of your clients’ money.
3. Productive Vibrations Reward Your Time
It can be hard to get your mojo going when you work independently, especially for those that work from home. Dressing up in a blazer and getting out of your house slippers can only give you so much oomph when you’re working just a few steps away from where you sleep, eat and veg-out on a daily basis. Getting out of the home and sharing an office with other like-minded entrepreneurs, hard at work, just feels right. Think back to your “study group” days in school, there was just something very motivating about being around others in the library or classroom that made you get into the zone a little easier. Thriving on the productive brainwaves radiating in a coworking office environment is kind of like that.
4. Renting Shared Office Space Saves You Time, Money
When you rent a shared office space, there’s no need to furnish, clean, decorate, or keep up with much maintenance at the office. It’s all taken care of for you. You can also reduce the amount of office overhead incurred for certain supplies that are often provided free-of-charge at many shared, remote, or virtual office spaces. You’ll also save money and gain peace-of-mind by not having to worry about initial deposits, binding leases or any other horrors that go along with long-term office rentals. Short term and affordable shared office space: It’s the way to go!
5. You Can Work in a Place Beyond Your Budget
Wouldn’t you love to have a corner office in that fancy, historic building downtown? How about without needing thousands upon thousands of dollars a year to set aside for renting that office? You can have that in a shared office environment. Upscale offices, normally off limits to the little guy become accessible in a coworking setting. At Work Webb, renters have use of the offices on the third floor of the beautiful, historic Kress building in the center of Daytona Beach for as little as $99 a month.
