I assure you that you are not the only one. Any first-time business owner, sole proprietor or those who have been in the market for a short time usually ask themselves the same question:
Will I make a bad impression on my clients because my business seems too small?
Often this is anassumption wemake without a reason. The truth is that your business may not be any smaller than that of the competition. Your business is probably the perfect size for your clients, so you should feel proud of the work you do every day.
It is true that the online world sometimes gives the feeling that there is a “great team” behind each company. This can be intimidating, but has more to do with the way a company is organized and presented than with the actual size of the company.
This is exactly what we at AndaCowork will help you with today in this blog.
If you are trying to reach a certain sector and communicate confidence and peace of mind to your clients, there are a few techniques that will help you to communicate professionalism and make your company seem larger than it actually is.
A professional room to hold meetings
If you have recently started a new company, one of the common solutions to save costs for your company is to have yourself and (if you have one) your team, work from home.
This definitely saves costs, but brings a new problem:
What happens if a client or a supplier insists on meeting you to talk about a project?
Hosting a meeting at home usually doesn’t leave a very professional impression (and meeting in a cafeteria is probably even less professional), so it’s important to find a solution and show the true professionalism of your small business.
One of the best options you can choose is to rent a meeting room.
This way you have a nice and quiet for your work meeting while transmitting the feeling of working in a professional space and being a well organized company.
Are you considering this option? ANDA offersgreat meeting rooms, which are fully equipped with the facilities you need and enabled for your meeting to be a great success.
Improve your online presence
“Nowadays, if you’re not on the Internet, you do not exist.”
We have heard this phrase more than once, and it is absolutely true.
Having an online presence is fundamental for several reasons, such as positioning yourself in the sector, being competitive with your products or services and giving an image of professionalism and seriousness.
On top of that, most potential clients who are experiencing a problem will look for a solution on the Internet. If you are not visible online, you will be restricting yourself from your professional success.
It is very likely that potential clients willsearch your name or services on Google, and if your business appearsas one of the first search results, this will make your company look great and the public will see you as an important player in your sector.
Building a presence online and becoming visible in Google’s search results can be done by creating a professional blog, a portfolio or a multimedia curriculum (SEO).
Don’t think about it any longer: Take advantage of the quiet summer months and create a professional website. Use the opportunity to be visible in the market with a fresh and strong look!
Register your business with a virtual office
“But why would Igo for a virtual office address for my company if I do not have a physical address because I work on the Internet?”
More than once we have heard this phrase, and the truth is that technological changes have created the ability for us to work from anywhere in the world and for any type of client, as a so called ‘digital nomad’.
But although we can enjoy this independence when it comes to work, we will always need a formal address to relate towhen speaking to clients.
And that’s not all!
Imagine for a moment that you need to give one of your clients your address for a business agreement. You will probably agree that giving a client your home address can affect your business in a negative way.
Therefore, having a virtual office address to useas a social, professional and fiscal address will bring you many advantages in the way you present your company.
Are you interested in registering your company at a virtual office address and make your company look bigger, more professional and more serious? Feel free to get in touch with us and we will offer you the service that suits your needs in the best way.
