Putting on the Gloves in Toronto Office Space

The old expression “Taking the Gloves Off” has often been used in business when it is time to knuckle down and “get down to business.” In these tough economic times many small businesses are having to take the gloves off and fight to survive. Other entrepreneurs and small business owners are putting the gloves on at their Toronto offices to better interact with technology. Today at our office space Toronto, this blogger noticed a woman who had an office for rent Toronto at Telsec wearing gloves in the 18th-floor kitchen. I was perplexed at what I was seeing because it was not that cold anywhere on the floor. A closer look showed that the gloves had silver-looking tips on the first two digits and on the thumb. It turns out that the woman was not wearing the gloves fo...

Popup Offices are not an alternative to Office Space Toronto

You have probably heard about the trend called Popup Shop or Popup Retail, where empty retail space is temporarily used for a short time. Literally, they can pop up one day and be gone the next, hence the coined word “popup.”  For owners of empty retail spaces, popups can help bridge the gap between long-term tenants. For a business, this setup may provide an ideal way to have a quick sell-off sale or test the retail market briefly in that location. Now there is a new term that started in the UK called Popup Offices or Popup Office Space. The idea behind the popup office is that companies can temporarily house staff in a non-traditional office location for a short time with little or no infrastructure except for a Wifi Internet connection. The problem is that these short-term o...

Social Media is Not for Every Small Business

While Telsec’s office space Toronto has benefited greatly from using social media like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google Plus, other small businesses have not had any success using social media to attract new business or to reinforce business relationships with existing clients. Having an Internet presence is good, but social media requires a commitment. Before considering setting up a social media profile, you should first make a plan on how and when you will update and interact with that profile. The experts say that unless you can commit to regular updates and interactions with your social network followers, you are better to not have a social media profile. The reason for this is that without constant monitoring and interaction with your followers, problems may occur and by ...

Seasonal Party for Office Staff at Office Space Toronto

This blog was inspired by some interesting conversations that happened at the Telsec office space Toronto Christmas party for office for rent Toronto tenants. This year, like previous years, the food and drinks were set up in the boardroom that is just off of the reception area, but most people were standing around the reception area talking and being offered finger foods as the waiter walked through the crowd. Because this was a Christmas party for all office space for lease Toronto tenants, one of the topics of conversation between tenants was how big and diverse the crowd was and maybe Telsec should move next year’s party to one of the larger Toronto meeting rooms or even the seminar training room. Another topic of conversation that was also party-related was where and what type o...

Using a Hashtag Can Be Good For Business

Social media can be good for business. You just need to know how to use it to your advantage. Social media outlets like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn are becoming very popular with larger businesses to help with brand awareness and to keep their brands top of mind. But these sites can also benefit small businesses who have office for rent Toronto at office business centres like Telsec. When it comes to Facebook, the key is to establish and grow your page with followers or “likes.” You should start by letting friends, family and those who you already do business with, get to know you better and like you. The second step is to do some outreach and find groups where the members have similar interests or are potential consumers for your product or service. Thirdly, consider runnin...

Benefits of a Cloud Office and Access to an Office Business Centre

Deciding On a Daily Office Rental or Toronto Meeting Room?

Are you finding yourself deciding on a daily office rental or a Toronto meeting room? If so, you are not alone. Many Toronto virtual office clients and non-virtual office clients will often rent a Toronto meeting room for appointments with their customers, while others prefer to choose a daily office rental to hold small meetings. The choice is usually the desire to impress a client or filling the meeting’s need for amenities. Most small businesses that require a Toronto meeting room will often do so because their home office does not afford them the luxury of having a meeting room. Others who choose to rent Toronto meeting rooms are those who have a small office space but no access to a meeting room with a boardroom table that can accommodate 4 to 12 people and is fully equipped wit...

What To Do When You Outgrow Your Toronto Virtual Office

Many small businesses that are started out of a home office will graduate to taking a virtual office Toronto when they want to have a professional business address. But a lot do not know what to do when they outgrow their Toronto virtual office. They have established clients who know where their business is and what their telephone number is, so taking a new office with a new address can pose a few challenges. This is not the case for small businesses who choose a Toronto virtual office location that is also in a professional business centre that also offers office for rent Toronto. One reason that a business may find that they have outgrown their Toronto virtual office is that they have hired staff and do not want to bring staff into their home office because they do not have the office s...
