Why you need a physical address even if you run a business from home.

A physical business address is not only essential for those who run large corporations, it is also a necessity for home based businesses. If you run your business from home then the most obvious address to use would be your home address, but be mindful that this can expose risk to your safety and privacy. A PO Box provides an address without the risk, however this can give the wrong impression to potential clients. A physical address is key to attracting and gaining customers; here’s why.

The reputation of your business is vital. No matter how good your services or products are, if consumers don’t trust your business they will not spend their money with you. Serviced office provider Victory Corporate Serviced Offices, provides the most prestigious and professional business locations. This allows clients to impress their potential customers when handing out their business card and utilizing a credible address on their website. A reputable physical address for your business builds a successful and trustworthy reputation.

You are more likely to have customers come to your workplace when you have a physical address displayed on your business card or website. Serviced Office providers also provide meeting rooms which are available for clients to hold their meetings at their business address rather than looking externally.

Most consumers research a business online before buying from them, and many prefer to buy locally. If you have a physical address on your website this makes your company more visible and searchable on Google Places. Don’t risk missing out on clients revenue just because you don’t have the right exposure.

Investing in physical office space can be expensive, so why not investigate virtual office spaces? Virtual office spaces do not require a long-term commercial lease commitment and have low overheads because companies don’t need to invest in full-time staff or office equipment. Virtual office packages start from $50.00 per month. Contact VCSO| Victory Corporate Serviced Offices on 1300 788 292 to find out more.

Are you working from home?

Union leaders urged bosses to be more flexible to let employees work from home, to reduce commuting costs and help people cope with caring and childcare responsibilities.

Are you thinking? “Oh, this solution is for me”. Knowing you can stick a wash on in between work calls; not even having to get dressed: I can see all you office workers swooning at the thought of how much easier life would be.

Well, actually, it can’t be.

According to THE AGE, home-working may not work in all profiles: ” Working from home can leave you socially and professionally isolated.” You may also be losing confidence in your skills or feel pain to communicate with your co-workers. Would you be able to let them treat your workday like “free time”? Would you be tired of listening to worker bees in the main hive, who suspect that you are simply sitting on the sofa drinking a coffee or having a quick seven-hour nap?

But whatever, as long as you get the company’s desired results! Here, at VCSO, we provide you with the best meeting room to present your “homework” to your employers and colleagues. Located in Melbourne and Sydney, make sure to impress your audience with our exceptional 6-star services.

The Psychology Behind a Meeting

The first impression

This encompasses everything from looks to behaviour. Whoever you are meeting will be asking themselves “how does this person intend to treat me?”

Research shows that first impressions are usually judged in terms of two things, and those happen to be trustworthiness and competence. In terms of trustworthiness, people want to know that you are (basically) a person with decent values. Will treat them with respect? Will you be warm, or rude? A great way of securing a person’s trust is to be interested in their values and interests; don’t try to come off as overly warm, but do relate to them in a way that makes you personable. In terms of competence, people need to know that you possess the skills that they need. Are you intelligent or teachable, or are you arrogant?

Body language

How you say something is just as important as what you actually say. Keep it simple.

Show that you are interested by sitting with good posture. Show you’re listening by making eye contact and definitely hold back from fiddling. If you naturally make a point by using hand gestures, do ensure that they are non-threatening; refrain from pointing fingers (which singles people out and has dominant connotations) or making fists… And keep your arms decidedly uncrossed!

Scarcity

Paint a picture of yourself that sets you apart from the rest – people want and appreciate what is scarce. Find what you can offer that others cannot.

Content

Of course; it’s the reason you’re meeting to begin with. This part is simple. Be prepared, be precise, be honest, and be on point. Do not waste anyone’s time, but find balance between going too fast and taking your time. Have an agenda but make sure you stay flexible.

Reciprocity

Generally if you do something for something, they are going to be likely to want to reciprocate the action – whether it be a favour or even a general manner. Make the role of the people you are meeting with easier; if it’s a job interview, anticipate what documents they will require and hand them over before they even ask. If it’s a professional meeting, pay your attendees the same courtesy.

Doing something proactive like this makes their life easier, and they will be likely to feel compelled to do the same for you.

Pinterest vs Instagram for Your Business

With so many new social media platforms popping up each year, it can be difficult to know which ones are best for your business. Pinterest and Instagram are similar, but serve different purposes and are geared towards different kinds of users.

Pinterest

Pinterest is essentially an online pinboard, where people create boards around a certain theme, such as travel or products. Images are sourced from other users or from the internet and pinned onto a user’s boards.

Where is Your Audience?

The majority of Pinterest users are based in the U.S.A. and are predominantly female. You need to consider if your business should invest time and money into this platform or choose a platform that has a larger amount of your target audience. Pinterest is much more popular overseas than in Australia, so it is a good platform if you are selling or promoting a product that is visually appealing and you want to gain extra exposure overseas without breaking the budget.

Pin Functionality

One of the best things about Pinterest is the automatic linking function for pins. Whenever you pin from another board or create your own pin from a website, a link to the image source is automatically embedded in the pin. This means that Pinterest users can click on the image and be transported to your website without the need for a long link or short link in the caption space.

Instagram Filters

One of Instagram’s biggest draw cards is the filters. There is a huge range of photograph filters available for free on Instagram and filters are being created or updated regularly. The aim with Instagram isn’t to encourage people to click through to your product or website (Instagram doesn’t embed photographs with links like Pinterest does), but rather to increase brand awareness and identity.

App Restrictions

One of the biggest problems from a business perspective is that Instagram does not allow users to upload images from their computer (though you can log in and check your account). Instagram also does not allow you to schedule your posts within the app, but you can utilise the mobile version of scheduling website such as Hootsuite or Buffer to schedule the posts instead.

While both Pinterest and Instagram both offer up image-based social media platforms, the manner in which they are used vary greatly. The key with any social media account is to create relevant information on your account that is both interesting and insightful to your follower, but the way to do that differs greatly between Pinterest and Instagram.
