Paying for the rent of your small office space that, has not got the required expansion you desire, or, spending a huge chunk of money, on transportation, might be a turn-off, for that small business you have.
Going forward, you may not, necessarily, have to worry, as you can move your company into a “virtual business” outlet.
This would afford you, effective cost management and even, give room, for your workers, who want to perform their office duties remotely.
Consider the tips below, if you want to try out a “virtual business space” for your small business:
Build Your Virtual Team
In getting yourself this kind of team, you need to be flexible about your approach.
You could, always, get freelancers on your team, who would definitely work remotely.
If you, even, have a project-based work, you could get around you, contractors, to fill in, rather than, hiring full-time workers.
All your administrative tasks can, also, be handled, by a Virtual Assistant.
Working virtually, requires that you synchronise, all your working tools. There must be a standard, for what you use.
For instance, you can use Slack, or, WhatsApp for messaging, Google Drive, or, Dropbox, for your back-up and file sharing, Evernote, or, Google docs, for documentation, Skype, or, TokBox, for video conferencing, etc.
Obtain The Right Tools
With the right tools at your disposal, a manageable internet service, a good mobile device, that is comfortable and portable, you are good to go.
Automated Cloud Solutions
Out there, are a good number of cloud and SaaS, (software-as-a-service), tools that, can assist you in performing your business, efficiently.
You could, simply, look for a cloud service solution of your choice and subscribe to its services.
With a cloud-based service, you can do some accounting, such as invoicing, compliance and reporting.
Do Not Seal Yourself Off, Completely
As good as, virtual business appears to be, do not be surprised that, not all your customers fancy it.
If your customers, or, potential clients, prefer that, you get some services done, by a physical meet-up, do not hesitate to have such a face-to-face meeting.
