Changing Needs of Coworking Space in 2018

By |June 27th, 2018|Categories: Coworking Office Space, Shared Office Space|

Coworking space has evolved to mean much more than simply shared office space. While coworking office space is an accessible and affordable alternative to renting a traditional commercial office space, lower operational cost is no longer its strongest selling point. As noted in our previous article about the changing needs of coworking space in 2017, small business owners and entrepreneurs are now seeking a sense of community with other like-minded professionals. So what makes for a sense of “community”? For some small business owners, it may mean an environment that fosters professional networking, or alleviates the isolation of an individual or home office. For others, it may mean working alongside those sharing an industry or vocation, such as tech development or remote freelancing. For still others, it may mean a sense of exclusivity, such as coworking spaces that are solely dedicated to women. Regardless of what it may mean to […]

  Coworking: The Who, What, Why & Where for Startups & Entrepreneurs As a marketer one of my prime resources for promoting all our products are the questions that potential clients ask about our services. Since coworking is a new offering in the flexible workspace category that we didn’t have a lot of questions about, I used a tool which identifies the questions in the suggestions that users get when they enter search terms into Google. The best content that I can add to a site is content that answers questions our website visitors may have about our offerings. Coworking: What Does It Mean? Easily the $64 question as even the spelling is disputed as to whether it is coworking or co-working. What it means depends on who you’re asking. To some users it means: All non-traditional office space (flexible workspace) A workplace design and environment Office space with themed […]

Flexible Workspace: What is it and Who Benefits?

By |March 21st, 2018|Categories: Coworking Office Space, Shared Office Space|

I recently read an interesting Flexible Workspace Study about how flex space is perceived by end users; individuals responsible for procuring office space for their companies; coworking and serviced office providers and landlords. The survey was not huge as the study describes its composition as being “The survey was sent to over 500 people across the industry.”. However, combined with my experiences here at Telsec Business Centres for going on 4 years and as an end user I’d agree with much of what the study shows as the benefits of the workplace environment for workers and organizations. What is Flexible Workspace or Flex Space? Flexible workspace: the term the industry uses to refer to any type of space outside of the conventional lease market. Identifying the different types of respondents included excellent definitions for coworking; serviced offices; hybrid office providers which are office space providers with a mix of coworking and serviced office space and flexible workspace which includes all […]

Facebook and Google Face Advertiser Push Back

By |February 22nd, 2018|Categories: Business Trends|

Facebook and Google are finding out that the problem with massive disruption is when landscape gets all churned up it isn’t able to provide a stable foundation until it settles, which can often take several years. Facebook counts nearly ¼ of all people on Earth as users. It has a reach so incomprehensibly big it’s very difficult to fathom. Google is, by far, the world’s largest advertising company with its ubiquitous AdWords ads, 60% of the display ad market through its DoubleClick unit, and a virtual monopoly on searchable online videos with YouTube. More than any other Internet behemoths, Facebook and Google are the biggest beneficiaries of the shift in ad revenue from traditional media sources like television, magazines, and newspapers. Together, they have become the gatekeepers of the Internet and thus the duopolistic sources of most people’s information. In recent years, stock values for both companies have surged, matched […]

Trends in the business space looking forward

By |December 21st, 2017|Categories: Coworking Office Space|

It’s the end of the year as we’ve known it and more of us are several yards short of fine. Only after the phrase “dumpster fire” becomes a frequently used descriptor on the national newscasts does one realize they’ve entered a new place, a terra incognito built simultaneously on fear and false equivalency. But that’s where we are and that’s what drives culture and culture is both cause and outcome of business. If only the only thing to fear was fear itself. That luxury is so last decade. Writing this piece while simultaneously checking social media and listening to the drone of cable news in the other room one might think we’re on the edge of a swirling abyss, surfing the event horizons of several significant disasters at the same time. So this isn’t really a predictions piece. It is more of a how things look right now piece. The […]
