About us

[row cols_nr="2"] [col size="6"] Second generation printer and local entrepreneur Lawson Willett found he needed a new location for his ever-growing company. Not only the print side, but his range of businesses in fulfilment, logistics and content marketing. So he set about the task of checking every available location around town. Looking to steer clear of industrial units on the fringes of town, which he felt wouldn’t have the creative buzz he was looking for, he suddenly came across the old Gardiner Shoe Factory in Gloucester; once very busy but now sitting neglected, empty, missing its industrious past. [/col] [col size="6"] As the long slog to convert the building began and lots of usable rooms of all sizes and shapes began to emerge out of the gloom, people kept asking if they could rent desk-space from him. A whole range of people. Mainly entrepreneurs and small businesses needing to expand their offices from converted garages or overpriced offices, from rural businesses wanting roots in the city, from people working alone and missing the buzz of a team. So realising there was a need for co-working and virtual space for business professionals, for like-minded entrepreneurs and tech savvy individuals needing flexible, affordable, creative space in Gloucester, No1 Business Centre was born.

Virtual Offices from £45.00 per Year

Comparing the operations of a virtual office and those of the traditional set-up, you will quickly realise that virtual offices are an innovative approach to office management but are also much more cost effective. These days when every person owning an office is seeking to reduce the amount of cash they spend on office expenses, it makes sense that a virtual office is a better way to manage the business. With many more options to office management, this new way of running businesses allows you to handle multiple tasks and not necessarily from a central place. People endure the lack of efficiency brought about by the traditional office. You have the dreaded morning rush as the roads are filled with traffic jams as you try to get to your office before time. Then there is the eyesore brought about by employers packing too many employees in tiny office spaces. This is because office space is too expensive and every business wants to cut down costs. With the introduction of virtual office spaces, you now have the pleasure of having your entire home to work from, no overcrowding in packed offices. The morning rush does not bother you anymore; and now set their own working schedules as long they beat the deadlines. What an improvement! Cost wise, virtual offices have cut down significantly on the costs involved in running an office. There is no more concern about the rent or rates that had employers packing you into tiny offices in the first place. A central office premise is not even necessary. As for your clients, they can reach you through reliable phone numbers, email address and even postal mails. Their questions are responded to even faster by you and they are receiving better services. You no longer travel to central locations to meet with your business partners; why do so when you can engage them in a conversation from wherever you are? Other costs associated with traditional office settings such as water and electricity bills don’t exist anymore as you can work from the comfort of your own home. The costs of communication are also lowered significantly as there are almost no telephone bills. Everything is based on the internet and communication is made a lot cheaper other than being fast. What is more satisfying is that with the use of a virtual office it a much easier task now since most clients are open to the concept of a business with a virtual presence in these changing times. But if you do need a physical space don’t panic No1 Business Centre in Gloucester can provide meeting and training rooms by the hour so you can meet up face to face. We also have great packages to register a virtual office if it helps secure customers and provide mail and telephone support services.

At some point, you’ll probably want to start looking for some cheap office space in Gloucester. There are hundreds of thousands of start-ups around the UK and while there’s been an increase in financial support through government bursaries and crowd funding, the daily costs such as rent, electricity and a decent internet connection quickly start adding up.

Virtual Business Address

[row cols_nr="2"] [col size="6"] There are several things to think about when securing your perfect virtual business address Make sure you have room to grow your business. If your business grows, make sure the virtual office service provides options to expand with you. Features like flexible meeting room space, shared office space or desk space at the same address so that you don't need to change your address when you grow. Meeting rooms and co-working or hot desks are an important set of options when considering a location. Check carefully that you can use your virtual business address as a physical base, and are you able to visit your trading or registered address and meet your clients there. If you need to work for a few hours’ in-between meetings do they have a hot desking service that you can use? Be a little quirky and don't have the same address as another lot of other businesses via big corporate entities. Make sure your virtual office service company doesn’t allocate too many businesses to the same address. When you use their address you don't really want it used by 100s of other companies, so Google the address and see what it shows - you want to find a discrete address that doesn't scream 'virtual office'. Ensure your virtual office address can provide both a Trading and Registered address. A Trading Address is one where you can use the address on your business cards and website and have letters/goods delivered. However, a Registered Address is one where you can use the address for statutory mail, i.e. mail from Companies House and HMRC. This is how Companies House defines a Registered Address: "All companies must have a registered office, which must be situated at a physical location in their country of registration. It can be your business address, the address of your accountant or any other address you choose. However, it must be an address at which you will be able to deal with all official letters and notices that you receive." - Companies House It’s a real bonus if your Virtual Business service provider will also accept large package delivery. Make sure they allow delivery of large packages and letters. Same day mail forwarding for your mail items needs to be considered as another option. How quickly does your proposed service forward mail? Is it forwarded on the same day as received or the next day? Do they tell you when mail is received/forwarded? How do they ensure that mail sent has been received by you? You also need to consider if they will provide a scan service too if you are on the move or often abroad? Finally, take time to check out telephone answering services the service provider gives. You may need to have a local landline number to give a local presence. Can that number be used with an automatic answer service or call forwarded to your own mobile or can you work with a virtual PA? To help find out about No1 Business Centre, Gloucester range of virtual business address services please fill in the form. [/col] [col size="6"] [formidable id="14" title="1"] [/col] [/row]

Collaborative Working @No1 Business Centre

ASAP - The Association of Serviced Apartment Providers were hosting a convention @Venues Bishopsgate London and in need of a flexible transport service delivering and collecting materials for the convention. ASAP were faced with a number of challenges in transporting their materials to and from the venue due to the nature of exhibition halls. The majority of Exhibition venues have strict instructions on set up and break down of stands etc. and booking in slots are required for delivery of any equipment. This causes issues for even the smallest of deliveries as the overnight and pallet networks aren’t flexible enough to accommodate such requests. DHL, DPD etc. can easily deliver on a timed before service such as a pre-9 or pre 12 but are enable to deliver at a specified time slot forcing the exhibitors to look to alternative transport solutions. To overcome the time specific delivery and collection asap needed a dedicated courier service. Working within the No.1 Business Centre encourages all of the companies based within it to collaborate, grow and work together. All About Freight are a Freight Forwarding and Courier Company www.allaboutfreight.co.uk who specialise in Same Day deliveries. A dedicated same day delivery enables you the customer to have your shipments collected and delivered on the date and time you require. With access to any sized vehicle All About Freight can react to any requirement throughout the country with collection times within 90 minutes. After discussing the requirements with asap All About Freight organised a dedicated vehicle to collect from Gloucester and deliver direct to the loading bay stipulated by Venues at the required time. With the service being a dedicated delivery the driver was on hand to unload the shipment and place it in the designated loading bay as instructed, unlike the network drivers Same Day Couriers will always assist in ensuring the goods being delivered are safely delivered and signed for by the correct signatory.  The collection and return was organised for the end of the convention, asap informed All About Freight that the items for collection would be at a specific location and marked up for our attention. The Same Day Courier arrived within the allotted time slot, collected and delivered directly back to All About Freight where the items were stored until asap were on hand to receive the items. Being part of the No.1 Business Centre enables all the companies to learn best practices and gain knowledge by working together and utilising each other services. Whether it be print, design, IT or Logistics everyone is here to help and grow each other’s businesses.

Having pride in your business appearance

[row cols_nr="2"] [col size="6"] Working from home is a great thing. in charge of your own time working through emails and phone calls when you can with out someone physically there to help 'motivate' you by sitting your shoulder. The cloud has done so much for remote working, with systems and VOIP to tap into anywhere you work. But what if you're a one-man band or trying to establish a presence in a part of the UK you are not usually known for? Maybe your client wants to meet you or a contract could hinge on you having a base not far from the client. Now's time to have a virtual office, access to meeting rooms and somewhere to work from with pride to represent your business. We look at the offerings available and yes they serve a purpose but having pride in where you're based is everything. You are being foolish if you think your clients don't assess your capability to service them and your office presence helps build that foundation. We know the value of good foundations when it comes to looking at a business from the outside. All No1 business centres are indeed truly Home to Entrepreneurs with the ability to register a business, meet clients, base yourselves in our offices. We are proud of what we have built and others engage with us because of our mentality. Virtual offices are just the start but we can do so much more together. Let's talk. [/col] [col size="6"] [formidable id="8" title="1" description="1"] [/col] [/row]    

A business home to be proud of

[row cols_nr="2"] [col size="6"] Where you base your business can do as much damage as it can open doors for you.  Have you thought about your office space and how your office provider portrays the building you are in?  We do. The home for Entrepreneurs has been created for all SMEs looking for a place to not only rent office space or have a meeting in, it's a mentality. One that only a few have. So we say it's as much our choice to have you rent our offices as it is yours.  We give you everything you need to successfully trade and operate including super fast broadband, unlimited access to kitchen facilities and beverages on tap. We give you secure access and video door entry.  We even give you a social life with other like minded business owners in the building. But how many go the whole hog and give you free networking events and access to databases, contacts and panels of experts to make your business excel? We do. Together we can help each other be bigger, better, faster and more efficient. So why not work together to make The Home for Entrepreneurs a place to be proud of internally and envious of from the outside. Want to get your business involved with meeting rooms, virtual offices, office rental or accountancy services? We would love to hear from you. Call us today to find out how we can help each other.

6 things you can do as a co-worker at No1

At the No1 Business Centre co-workers and tenants are coming in thick and fast. We understand that we have created a great environment in the centre of Gloucester only 2 minutes walk from the train station and city centre but why are people saying we are the place to be for lone roomworkers, one man businesses and SME's? Here's what some know and others should about our co-working site in Gloucester. 1. Did you know you can register your business at No1 from only £45.00 per year? One simple form and some id and we will get you setup straight away. So your business doesn't have to be based at your house giving you the air of establishment. 2. All our rental spaces come with free meeting room access. With spaces ranging from 1-2-1 and four people we have The Sole Room, able to house up to thirty delegates. 3. All beverages and kitchen facilities are included in every co-working price and offer we have. 4. We can open 24 hours a day 7 days a week if your work requires. Without your success we have none, so all spaces are ready for you to setup and work. 5. Our broadband is unlimited, uncapped and ready for you to run any cloud based business from.  Unlike some co-working spaces in Gloucester and surrounding areas internet access can be limited and restricted depending on your 'level of membership'.  We only have one tier, Entrepreneur. So let's work together to make Gloucester a home for your business. 6. We would hazard a good guess that like-minded problem sharing is the route to an easier more successful career. Our free networking events and seminars give you the ability to meet and share knowledge with others and even pass business both ways. Now at £1.88 per hour which is cheaper than going to the local coffee shop. We also offer full time packages at £199.00 pcm to give you unlimited access, you won't find a place like it in Gloucester, Stroud, Cheltenham or beyond. Want to know more? we would love to hear from you. Why not give us a call today or book directly online. [dopbsp id="5" lang="en"]

Showcase: CBF Printing and Fulfilment

Customer: CW Creative on behalf of Typhoo Tea.
Service Supplied: Print, Hand finishing and Distribution.
Job: Launch of new Typhoo Health and Healthier range tea bag.
CW Creative contacted us after finding our CBF Fulfilment website online.
They needed a printer and fulfilment house that could produce a job for them, complete it to a high standard and deliver within one working week, and just a week before Christmas.
The job involved printing 50,000 5x5" information cards. These were printed double sided on a high grade Silk paper stock and trimmed down to size.
The customer supplied to us 50,000 of the new Typhoo tea bags that were being launched. We liaised with Typhoo Tea to ensure the Tea Bags came to us on time and packaged in the correct as so we could handle them as quick as possible.
Once the tea bags came in we instantly began the work through our hand finishing department of affixing via a glue dot one tea bag on to each information card that we had printed.
Due to our extensive hand finishing department this took us just 6 hours to complete the 50,000 units.
We then had to box the tea bags carefully in to standardised quantities and prepare them for distribution to multiple delivery addresses across the country.
I am pleased to say everything went out to schedule, on time, just before Christmas ready for the big launch.
The customer was over the moon as they had not only not been able to find any other supplier that could complete the work in time before Christmas. We came in under what was actually a very tight budget for the amount of work and service that was needed.
Once they had actually received the items they complimented us on our overall service, including our level of communication throughout the whole process, our level of understanding of the job ahead, print quality of the information cards, finishing quality, standard of packaging, the fact we created a schedule in a tight situation and stuck to it and delivered on time as promised. All with their budget.
The campaign was a success and we are looking forward to working alongside CW Creative on other Campaigns in the near future. A new customer successfully won over.

Why are businesses turning to virtual offices?

  [row cols_nr="2"] [col size="8"] Looking at how we are all connected 24/7 now with our smart devices.  Virtual working is more prevalent than ever.  With people working in co-working spaces, from home or even cafes. But if you are able to run your business from home it really is a case of giving your customers the perception they perceive as established and stable.  A virtual office is a good medium for you to be able to base your business at an established address but to also meet your clients at if you need to. Now if you are looking for a virtual office service you need to consider multiple angles. Firstly your location of your business are you looking for a base near your target audience.  There are virtual offices all over the UK so one may not be enough. Be strategic on your business location if this matters to you. Secondly, the office you are basing your business, is it befitting to a business of your class and does it position you well?  This may sound daft but the image is key and especially if you have a choice of virtual office solutions.  This may be the main determining factor for the price difference as they vary hugely but with very little service difference. Fundamentally your business needs a home virtual or otherwise so choose wisely and cost-effectively.  We can't find another service like ours online at the same price point that's why we see hundreds of applications per year. But at £45.00 per year this price point is cheaper than some charge per month! Want to know more about our virtual office services?  We would love to hear from you.  Why not give us a call today on 01452 346835 or fill in one of our enquiry forms and we will come right back to you.

Keeping your business startup costs down with a virtual office

[row cols_nr="2"] [col size="6"] Starting a business can be a liberating experience.  You are giving yourself the freedom to earn money using your skills and money without others seemly higher than you tell you what you need to do to justify your time and their money. But once you have decided to set up a business (congratulations by the way), have you thought about how to get the best client perception for the least amount of spend?  Now, many will talk about getting your branding right and your service or products but let's drill it right down.  Your business needs customers in order for you and it to survive. These customers need to trust in your processes and your product but don't be fooled in thinking that they won't check you out before purchasing or buying into your service.  Now we all know the art of professionalism is a moveable feast but give you and your business a chance by at least announcing your presence in a work environment that befits your business and no that's, not your converted garage or home office. A virtual office for your business needs to tell your potential customers that you are in a respectable working environment and that you are taking your business seriously in a professional environment. Now I can't speak for all virtual office providers but the location is one factor to choose for our business as you need to be in the right location for your clients to come and see you or think that you are close enough to service their needs. But there are huge price variances to think about when choosing a virtual office and as we all know the more you pay doesn't always equate into a better service or offering.  You may have seen monthly offerings that are easy to swallow financially but do you understand the additional charges that can come with post forwarding or telephone answering services? We see charges of up to £100 per month just to have a business registered at an address. Now in some cases, I'm sure it's worth it as it is cheaper than renting an office.   But in most cases, £20-40 per month is the usual market average. But allow us to think about this differently.  We run the 'Home for Entrepreneurs'.  Our tenants have been enjoying our hospitality since August 2016 and we are proud to announce that we are full.  We think it's because of the mentality of our staff and marketing that win over our clients as we are certainly not the cheapest but we do add the most value. Surely this is a home to be proud of for your business? We are amongst the few in the country that charges a flat fee for a business to be registered at our location.  We give you access to all our networking events for free and give you priority for our meeting rooms when you want to book a space to meet a client. How much does all this cost? Just £45.00 per year. We know, it's good right! That's why hundreds of businesses register with us every year without hassle and without a second thought. So when you're looking to start a business and are looking for a virtual office. Spare a thought for us at the No1 Business Centre. Want to know more about our virtual offices?  We would love to hear from you.  Why not give us a call today or fill in one of our enquiry forms and we will come straight back to you.

Why choose a Virtual Office?

[row cols_nr="2"] [col size="7"] Let's jump straight into it, cut to the chase. Virtual Offices are a fantastic way to operate your business, especially if you're a small business owner. Need convincing? Let us tell you why. If you're a small business owner, the likelihood of you running your operations from your own home is highly probable. It cheaper than renting an office space. But more often than not, it can impact how potential clients perceive you. The first impression is everything.Don't let a client opinions of you be based on where you reside. Even if it's in your own home. Use a Virtual Office to disguise your office base and give the illusion that you work in a reputable industrial location. Having a Virtual Office isn't simply about protecting your private address, but it gives you the ability to maintain a permanently manned address, no matter where you move. No longer do you need to worry about missing an important letter or package because staff are at hand to ensure your post makes its way to you. You are able to visit your clients without the concern of missing anything critical. Why waste your time of continually changing your address as your business begins to expand and grow? Naturally, any business must upscale buildings as staff and operations grow. But, it is time-consuming to keep altering your business address. Have a fixed address via a Virtual Office. Most importantly, you want to be able to keep work like and home life separate. A Virtual Office enables you to keep your address confidential. Do you want your clients showing up to your address? With a virtual address, it means that your home address is kept off of public websites and enables you to hand out an address that you are comfortable with giving away. Differentiate your personal life from your work life, choose a Virtual Office.   [/col] [col size="5"] [formidable id="8" title="1"] [/col] [/row]

Why Virtual Offices Benefit Start-Ups

[row cols_nr="2"] [col size="6"] I'm going to get to the chase here. Start-Ups aren't easy. They're expensive, time-consuming and produce a large financial risk. Once your Start-Up has begun to grow and working from home isn't an option, you need to undergo the time-consuming task of finding yourself an office to rent. What if it's too costly? What if you don't have time to find the perfect place to rent for the size of your company? Will it give the good first impression for potential clients? Virtual Offices put you in a position to eliminate all of these factors. The good news is that by using a Virtual Office, you're able to settle for both. Need space for that important meeting? Need to create a good first impression for your potential clients? Guess what? It's all there, under the price tag of a Virtual Office. You are able to rent a room for a couple of hours, instead of renting a whole office for a month! You can now focus your costs on the more important things. Like new products; new services. Other benefits include having a prime location without the expensive price tag. You are able to promote your business as having a prestige address without having to pay the enormous price tag that comes with it. It's often believed that your success is determined by your location. The more expensive the address and the more centralised it is to the city centre means you are more victorious. This can lead to a fall back on Star-Up's. They're seen as inferior and incapable of producing any successful contracts. However, with the right business address, via a Virtual Office, all of these concerns wither away. Amongst all of this, you are skillfully able to present your firm to the world with more confidence and professionalism than ever, via a fully manned reception team. Of course, all enquires are important, but when you have an occupied team assisting you on time-consuming calls, it means you are able to focus on larger projects that'll win you business. Start-Ups will absorb all of your time and will become costly. But don't let that be the case with a Virtual Office. Be smart about it. Want to learn more?

Cheap Virtual Office Address

  [row cols_nr="2"] [col size="6"] When it comes to making your business look good from the first impression a virtual office has to be up there as a good idea. Don't assume your potential clients and suppliers won't check out your office location to assess your establishment.  Google Street view tells all... So what are you looking for?  A virtual office has to be in a business location that has meeting room space to host your meetings in.  Ideally, with car parking, free internet access and all the tea and coffee, you can drink to impress and position you correctly. But when it comes to price virtual office service providers seem to charge what they can get away with.  Let's be honest here.  All our virtual office customers have one thing in common. They need the ability to show a business presence in the area of their choice, away from a home office or as a regional office. Having a cheap virtual office doesn't make your business cheap if you find the right service working smart is always better than working hard.  At £45.00 per year to register your business at No1 is a no-brainer! We will give you your own pigeonhole for all your post and correspondence, you will be able to book meeting rooms and attend our events for free to open further doors to help build your business. You need a postal address that can take your business mailings and if you need it a dedicated phone number to be answered and messages taken efficiently while all long maintaining professionalism at all times. Based in the heart of Gloucester City Centre we are 2 minutes walk from the railway station, Gloucester Rugby Club and the City Centre. Be proud of your business home! A virtual office at No1 is definitely the place to be.  Want to find out more about our cheap virtual offices?  We would love to hear from you.  Why not fill in one of our enquiry forms or give us a call to get the ball rolling.

10 Ways to get Engagement

Getting engagement from your audience can often be a difficult one. But, here are 10 simple ways to do just that.

1.Make people think

Evoking an emotional response from your audiences is a sure-fire way to get them to respond. Offer them new information that will teach them something or prompt them to ask questions.

2.Make people laugh

Build a personality. Don’t be one of those boring businesses with a very formal approach to their content. Humour shows that you are human. If you can make people laugh at your content, they’re more likely to share.

3.Learn basic photography skills.

We’re in a day and age where photography is more important than ever. Visuals are very important too. Research about what makes a good photo (Leading lines, lighting, symmetry etc…). Make it interesting. This is particularly useful for Instagram, where excellent photos mean everything.

4.Engage with followers whenever you can

If you want others to engage with you, you should show your willingness to engage with them. Create a dialogue with them. It’s good practice to engage with companies too.

5.Be precise

This is mostly aimed at Twitter as a platform. With a character limit, although it’s been extended to 280 characters, it isn’t always easy to write a whole bunch. So, keep it short, sweet and to the point. Don’t be over-concise.

6.Cover a story in your own words

If there’s content out there that’s trending, and it’s also relevant to you and your business, write about it! It’ll open a platform for discussion and perhaps provide new information to your followers. This is also an excellent opportunity to be controversial. Don’t agree with what’s being said? Good. Being controversial encourages different standpoints. People love their opinions.

7.Share content

Sharing content shows that you are an active member of the community.  It’ll encourage individuals to share more with you. It aids in building up a relationship. Meaning they are more likely to engage with you. But, it also provides a fresh piece of content for your followers. If it’s relevant to what you do.

8.Challenge the status quo

Contradict already existing standpoints. Show them new information that may be unknown. You could even question a long-standing belief that’s within your industry. Question things that no one else typically would.

9.Be surprising

Keep your content fresh. Share something that you wouldn’t usually share. By keeping your followers on their feet, they’re more likely to share and respond to your posts.

10.Timing

If your followers are active at 9 am, 5 pm and 8 pm. Those are the time frames in which you should post! They'll be more likely to engage with what you have to offer. Do you agree with out list? Is there anything else you think we missed out on? Let us know!

We are always grateful when local business experts decide to choose the  No1 Business Centre, Gloucester, as their training centre to host and deliver repeat training programmes or events. One such local entrepreneur is Jonathan Pollinger of Intranet Future (intranetfuture.com). Jonathan’s business is truly virtual, but he does need some occasional bricks and mortar to bring his clients together, to expand their knowledge on the power of social media with professional training, so he chooses No1 Business Centre in Gloucester. “No1 Business Centre is an excellent venue for holding training and events. I've run regular workshops and social media events, and I also choose the No1 Business Centre, Gloucester for the weekly co-working and networking event ‘Laptop Friday’.” - Jonathan Pollinger, Intranet Future When we asked Jonathan why he prefers to use our centre as a base in Gloucester his reply was very complimentary… “The staff are very supportive and as you'd expect, willingly setting up rooms as required. All the facilities are modern and clean and I particularly like the coffee made with real beans. Room hire is also good value for money". We asked Jonathan if there was one part of our service that really made No1 Business stand out, he simply replied, “What stands you out is No1 Business Centre’s willingness to support and promote events via social media and word of mouth.” So, if you need a home in Gloucester to run either a one-off training event, workshop or a series of regular events, we have experienced staff to support you on the ground and virtually, to help you promote your offering and give a great experience for your clients.

Looking to start up a business? Spare some thought about where your office is based

  [row cols_nr="2"] [col size="6"] It has been acceptable to work from home for over 20 years now as a consultant or a remote member of staff.  But there had always been an office hub, head office or place to call home for the business that is not a house in the middle of suburbia. Now as we all know a lot of startup businesses are born with little or no cash but they have all the drive and enthusiasm to succeed.  So all help, advice and open doors are generally welcomed.  But if you are the lucky owner of a new business or are looking to start one.  Spare some time on reflecting on how your business could look straight out of the box if you had a virtual office?  Odd thought?  Not really.  We all like to think that social positioning and bias plays no part in opening doors for your personal or work goals. But sadly materialism is real and judgement is easy to come by. A virtual office is cheaper than renting an office space and it provides you the right cover story or smoke and mirrors to look more established than you really are.  Most virtual office providers will offer additional services like mail forwarding, meeting room space and even co-working or hot-desking. But how do you determine which virtual office service is best for you? We let's start with location.  Your 'virtual' office needs to be in a location that looks like a busy, vibrant hub for business and not some dodgy backwater. As it should be a home you are proud to base your business at.  You may want to be based near your target clients? Or you simply want a virtual office round the corner from your home.  Whatever the reason prospective clients will check you out and you should have a business home to be proud of. The other factor is the price.  Virtual offices vary massively in price for the same service as the location of the building hosting your business will vary in it's overheads and desirability for businesses to be based there. But make sure you know what you're paying for. A lot of virtual office providers charge monthly fees to be part of the service but make sure you are comfortable with the value you are getting for the money.  Some of the larger providers allow you to work from office sites all over the country for the monthly fees which could suit some business owners. At No1 we try to keep it simple.  We love start-up businesses and we offer a huge service for very little return as we are the Home for Entrepreneurs. All the usual mail-forwarding, Call answering and business address registration services are available all starting at just £45.00 per year. That's £45.00 to register your business at the home for all things entrepreneurial and with our huge range of events open to all businesses registered here. We give you opportunities to network, learn and grow your business. How do you get the ball rolling?  Well with one simple enquiry form or a quick phone call to 01452 346835 we can help give your business a virtual office to be proud of.

A Virtual Office Breakdown…

[row cols_nr="2"] [col size="7"] Virtual Offices can have a huge impact on your business. But what if you don't fully understand how they work? It's all well and good for us to tell you how a virtual office can benefit your small business or start-up. But, if you're unaware of how it works, then what's the point. Let's start off with the basics. FULLY FURNISHED ROOMS. When you're looking for a space to rent, you have to go the extra mile to pay for furniture. This can be costly, especially if you're a small business with limited funds. But with a virtual office, although not physical, we can offer you a space to hold meetings. And, surprise surprise, our rooms come fully furnished without creating a huge dent in your funds. You'll never look unprofessional. PROFESSIONALISM. It's important to always remain professional in the realm of business. However, being professional also means that a variety of expenses have to be made to maintain this appearance. These can include expensive furniture, renovations and maintenance. Maintaining that element of professionalism via a virtual office is easy. You've no costs and little maintenance work to worry about because your virtual office supplier has it all covered. EMPLOYEES.  Often starting a business means being able to afford employee's full time isn't always optional. It's expensive and means you have to pay all of the additional costs of a wage package, sick pay and all of the general costs of employing a full-time member of staff. However, virtual offices mean you won't require any of this. You won't have to tie yourself down to long-term contracts, giving you more flexibility. Enabling you to focus your energy on what your business needs. EXPENDITURES. Not sure if you want to fully commit to a leasing agreement or how big your startup will grow once you've decided on a serviced office? Don't worry about it. A virtual office has you covered. It's the cheaper way of starting your business until you work out where you need to go in order to progress. You can work from home without having to devote your money to a physical office to work from. You'll still have people to do the important stuff, like manning the phones, collecting your post and carrying out related tasks that are imperative to your operations. But it means you can work from the comfort of your own home without the costly risk.   Making an informed decision is always important, so we hoped this helped you in your process of starting your very own business. [/col] [col size="5"] [formidable id="8" title="1"] [/col] [/row]

How can virtual offices shape the future of business?

[row cols_nr="2"] [col size="7"] Now more than ever, business owners alike, are choosing to run their business from the comfort of their own home. It's cheap, efficient and it's comfortable. The idea is, that it's now easier than ever to create and manage your own business from the comfort of your own home. Especially with the use of a virtual office. More to the point, how do businesses run from home, affect how we 'do' business? We'll start with the basics: 1. LOW COST 'In a nutshell', virtual offices are low cost. Nowadays, an entrepreneur like yourself can manage their enterprise from their own home and set up shop wherever. What does this mean? Well, it means that with the decline in office rentals, the price tag will reduce. This is particularly useful to companies that wish to establish themselves in area's closer to their intended market. 2. PRODUCTIVITY By 'cutting out' your commute time to work, you can use the time being more productive. Instead of wasting 2-3 hours with the whole getting ready for work and travelling there, you can now do it from the comfort of your own home. No longer do you have to worry about looking presentable for a work environment. You can wake up and get straight on with your work. Working from home also means that you have more flexibility. Choosing when you're able to work means, more will be completed. 3.EXPANDED SKILL SEARCHING As a business owner, you can often limit yourself to who you can hire, especially when it comes to geographical location a virtual office enables you to eliminate that obstruction. Freelancing is becoming more popular than ever and it means that you can hire employees from anywhere and not worry about the constraints of distance. No longer will you have to opt for the convenience of location. You could have employees from all over the globe. 4. LOWER TECH EXPENSES A new business means a plethora of expenses. Such as internet, computers and appliances. Supplying technical devices for your employee's can be costly too. Working from home means that these problems vanish. Your employees work on a device of their own choosing, use their own internet and supply their own refreshments. Saving you cost where it counts.   Being a young entrepreneur or an entrepreneur in general, that utilises a virtual office, is growing in popularity. Will it change how things are run? How we approach the concept of business? Running your business from a physical office won't become obsolete by any means. Choosing to create your business virtually has become as equally as popular in comparison. [/col] [col size="5"] [formidable id="8" title="1" description="1"] [/col] [/row]    

What does the new GDPR compliance mean for your business?

[row cols_nr="2"] [col size="7"] A new wave of change is happening for the Data Protect Act and it's in the shape of GDPR. However, It's all well and good highlighting that there's a change happening amongst business owners, but what's in the details? The aims of this reconstruction to the act entail many benefits. The major factors of this rework ensure that customers have better data security and that they have more control over personal data. Other factors include the following:
  • Increased customer confidence
  • Organisational change
  • Better work culture
  • Large company fines
  • Bad reputation
  • Legal Proceedings
  • Finacial exhaustion
All things considered, it's not just customers that are prospering from GDPR. Business owners are too. Although there may be more than several downsides to this new legislation. But, not everything is doom and gloom. With the new regulations, business owners are now under one market and one law. It will ease the scepticism of customers towards the use of their data. No longer will they need to worry about what it's being used for. Increased customer confidence will lead to more trust in brands. Other than a positive outlook for customers towards brands, GDPR promotes the idea of organisational change. Get your business ready for the future with a huge turnaround. Build a better work culture; a more successful process. Nevertheless, GDPR does offer some hardships. An organisation can face a fine up to 10 million Euro's or 2% global turn over if they fail to comply with the new regulations. This could have a ginormous impact on the reputation of a company if they fail to follow the new rules in place. By avoiding these mandatory requirements, you could expose yourself to no end of troubles. Whether it be a loss of reputation, financial depletion or even exposure to legal proceedings. It's more important than ever to grasp your head around the new GDPR compliances. If not, your business could suffer greatly in the long run. Don't risk it.

Virtual Offices – Saving the Environment.

[row cols_nr="2"] [col size="7"]

VIRTUAL OFFICES - SAVING THE ENVIRONMENT

Edward O.Wilson once said- 'One planet, one experiment.' The very quote suggests that we must be conscious of our decisions. We have one planet, so we must ensure that we take care of it. But, what does this have to do with virtual offices? Nowadays, it's down to business to be morally aware of their impact on the environment. They have to be aware of their input toward the planet, good and bad. When it comes to virtual offices, they are an excellent practice to safeguard the Earth. Here's how: ENERGY CONSUMPTION: Running your business from a physical office brings about a large consumption of energy. Whether it be through appliances, technology, or even lighting. All of these factors contribute to carbon emissions. But by replacing your physical office with a virtual office, you can reduce those carbon emissions estimated by 8.4 tonnes a year. That makes a huge difference. TRAVEL REDUCTION:  As opposed to a physical office space, you will rely on a website to fulfil the needs of your business. No longer do you need to travel to work in heavy rush hour traffic or even waste time getting home. All you need to do is manage your workload from the comfort of your own home. You save costs and you reduce massive amounts of Co2 production. It's estimated that customer visits are reduced by 60,000 miles a year if you go down the path of a virtual office. How can you beat those numbers? ECO-FRIENDLY COST CUTTING: Working from home means that you save a bunch of costs. Research has shown that a business owner can save up to £4,000 a year when it comes to a physical office space. Amongst all of this, you can save yourself £15,000 on IT. It can become increasingly costly, especially if you're providing software, hardware and everything in between for your staff. We've mentioned it before in another post, but by allowing your staff to work from home, they can use devices of their own choice. Meaning you don't have to supply anything for them. You can put that much-needed cash into other business ventures. We all have an obligation to ensure that we provide a future for our planet and virtual offices are a fantastic practice to ensure we do just that.

Engaging content

Create engaging content

Writing an engaging piece of content isn’t always easy. You won’t always get it the first time, and it takes practice. But here are some helpful tips to aid you in that process.

Breaking up text.

Having large pieces of text can be daunting and off-putting for your audience. Give them the stepping stones to finishing the article; break it up with white space Visuals are a very important aspect, especially if you wish to encourage engagement with your posts. An article by Segue Technology suggests that white space can add balance to your visuals. But, not only that, it helps users retain more information because there are little to no distractions. Improving legibility can work wonders.

Visual Elements

Ever heard of the phrase ‘A picture is worth a thousand words’? Visual elements are a GREAT way to demonstrate an idea. If you have an image that is paired correctly with the information you have given, your users are more likely to retain 65% of what they have read three days later. Additionally, by adding visual elements within your content, you’ll have a piece of writing that is far more interesting to look at and engage with. Which, in the long run, will encourage your readers into sharing your blog posts.

Back up your knowledge.

Want to be a credible source? Back up your knowledge. Prove to your audience that you know what you’re talking about. So, you know 8 ways to teach a dog to tap dance? Where have you found these techniques and are they proven? These are the sorts of questions your followers will be asking themselves. Prove your facts to be true.

Simplify complex ideas

Using a metaphor for a complex idea is an excellent way to help your audience understand. Rather than a long-winded explanation that makes zero sense, put it into a context that they’ll understand. It will make your work more comprehensible. If you've got simple answers to their questions, you'll be more likely to retain their interest. Don't hide their solution in a tangled piece of text. Give them what they need otherwise they will lose interest. If you require any help with creating content or anything else for that matter, contact our tenants CBF Creative.   
SEO Improvements

Improve your SEO

[row cols_nr="2"] [col size="6"] SEO can do wonders for your business. But, are you taking the necessary steps to make it worthwhile? If not, here is a list of things you can do, to strengthen your position on Googles search engine.

Shorten your Domain

Ensuring your domain name is short and sweet, means that it is easy to remember and that your audience can determine what you do, easily. Not only that, Google will be more favourable towards your website.

Shorten URLs

Make sure that you shorten your URLs. It ensures that the organisation of your website is easier. Shorten lengthy titles to something easier to read. Instead of /10-ways-improve-your-SEO, change it to /improve-SEO.

Check usability

Check that your website is working on all devices and browsers. Usability is very important for your audience. If it doesn’t work correctly, your SEO will lack and so will user retention.

Mobile Optimisation

Optimise your website for mobile. Phones are used to access the internet more than ever nowadays. Better user experience means that there will be fewer bounce rates. Make sure that you alter the layout and keep it simple, so it’s easily used.

Navigation

Improve website navigation. If your users can get around your website with ease, then you’re on the way to success. Keep it organised, make the menus accessible and make sure everything is clickable. If your website lacks any of they key features, you’re losing yourself money.

Authoritative Sources

Use highly authoritative sources in your content. If you can consolidate your knowledge and facts, your page will be trustworthy. Not only by Google but by your audiences too.

Formatting

Format your images correctly. GIFs and JPEGs are your best choice. This is to ensure that they load properly on all devices and browsers. When you use the correct formatting for images it ensures that your website runs faster too.

Optimise existing searches

Optimise already existing questions. When you optimise the sort of questions your ideal audience is looking for, you manage to attract the attention of those who otherwise wouldn’t see you. But, don’t forget to optimise your website for repeat visitors. Give them incentives to keep returning for more.

Unique Content

Writing content on a subject that is unique and unlike any other, will boost your visibility in Googles search engine. Of course, that is easier said than done. But, once you’ve found your niche, it should be easy sailing from there.

Multimedia Content

Increase the authority of your page by adding multimedia content to your blog posts! They add authority to your website from a Google perspective, and they also increase engagement from your audience. This is because visuals like images and video require less comprehension.

Use successful content as criteria

Discover what has made your most popular content successful. Discover the techniques you used that made it stand out, in comparison to anything else you have created. Once you’ve mastered that, replicate that formula

Social Media

Another key way of improving your SEO is by optimising your social media outlets. Fill them out in as much detail as possible. This won’t do much for the ranking of your domain, but you will be building a good reputation for yourself.

Link Social Media

Make it easier for people to connect with you. Link all your social media platforms on anything and everything. Interlink your social media channels onto one another.

Wikipedia

Create a Wikipedia page for your business and refer to it whenever you can. It can be a major SEO boost for your business.

Updating content

Update your content every couple of years. By updating your content, your website will become more authoritative. Don’t just change a couple of words on your homepage but rewrite it. Not only does it keep Google up to date, but your audience too. [/col] [col size="6"] [formidable id="3" title="1" description="1"] [/col] [/row]
Social Media

Why is Social Media good for business?

Social media can be made out to be the devil if something like the Facebook/Cambridge Analytica data-for-sale scandal erupts, or when MPs announce they abuse they receive online. But social media can be a very powerful tool for your business if used in the right way.

Instant response.

Instant Social Media Responses One of the benefits of social media platforms is that responses can be instant. Telephone enquiries and emails can often be a long process. Businesses can take a while to answer the phone, or even a couple of days to reply to you through email. But, by having a Facebook page, or a Twitter page, you can eliminate slow response time. You receive automatic notifications, so you’re aware of enquiries from people if they’ve messaged you or tagged you in something from the moment they’ve done so. With a quick response time, you’re able to build trust with your customer and you can gratify them at the same time.

Brand Personality.

Social media is an excellent way to demonstrate your brand's personality. As a medium it's a very casual thing, so try and be yourself, natural and open, within your brand's guidelines. Crack some jokes, make people laugh, be bubbly with your posts. It shows that there’s a human being behind that screen, not a robot with the intent to kill all humans. You can create a more personal experience, by connecting with your audience.

Opportunities

Brand Opportunities Being active on social media means you can have immediate feedback. Ask them if their response was satisfactory and if they appreciated your response. It’s a quick way to learn where your strengths and weaknesses are. Additionally, it's an amazing opportunity to ask about what your audience wants. What do they want to hear from you? What is the most beneficial topic for them? Create a questionnaire, a competition or a poll, interpret that data and grow from it. Additionally, platforms like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, offer you the opportunity to connect with your audience individually. You can give them a unique experience by altering your message so it suits their wants and needs.

Knowledge

Building Brand Personality Social media platforms are the place to go viral. Granted, the information must be new or something that is controversial to gain momentum. But once you’ve hit the ground running, you should be able to gain shares and likes, which in turn will lead to conversions. Unique pieces of content are something you want to aim for. But being controversial is just as good. Evoking an emotion from your audience will encourage them to participate in a discussion. If an individual feels a certain way about your piece of content then it's a sure fire way to get momentum.   Is there anything else that we missed? Let us know!

Creating content

5 ways to vary your content

Content can be a tricky one, especially if you’re trying to attract an audience. But, here are some simple ways to make your content more appealing; for it to vary in style.

‘Tips and Tricks’

tips and tricks Tips and tricks lists are a way to make your audiences lives easier. The theory behind it is to give your audience small bite-sized pieces of information. Information that is straight to the point and easily comprehensible. It can come in the form of a list or even a step by step guide on a specific subject. You could think of them as “life hack”, so to speak. But ultimately, they are an interesting thing to have. People are always looking for ways to better improve their circumstances. And, they may learn something that's completely new from them.

Videos

video content Videos are enticing. They require less comprehension and focus than your average blog post, which is a good thing. They are an excellent way to demonstrate a technique and chances are that the information will be retained more efficiently this way. There’s also a higher possibility of it going viral and producing ROI from a video, in comparison to your average blog post. Plus, Google really loves videos. This is because videos encourage users to stay on your website for longer. Producing longer sessions. You have higher chances of being on the first page of Google if you have a video embedded into your website. And, due to Google now owning Youtube, videos have become a more effective way to improve your search rankings.

Lists

listicle Lists tend to go hand in hand with ‘Tips and Tricks’. Number each point and ensure that they stay small and concise. Create information that gets to the point. Marry visuals with this and you’ve created yourself an interesting piece of content. They are an easy way to stay focused on the subject matter. Chances are, people are looking at your article, because of a purpose. They want quick and easy to read information without having to search through large amounts of text to find the solution. Keep it short an sweet for audiences who are in a hurry.

‘A day in the life of…’

a day in the life Allowing people an insight into your business is a great way to humanise your company. As I’ve said before, you want your audience to see that your content isn’t created by a robot, that in fact there’s a human behind the screen doing all the talking. To make it more interesting, you could add pictures of yourself, the team and any events/social gatherings that take place! Not only is it a fresh piece of content, but, it adds a bit of spice to your schedule. Keep your followers on their toes.

 Case Studies

case studiesThis may seem like a very basic one. But it does your company a world of good. Showcasing what you’ve done and how you’ve overcome a problem, can put you in a great position of authority. It shows you can achieve things to a high standard no matter the complications that have arisen. You are also able to showcase companies you have worked with. If they are a well-recognised brand, people will take you more seriously. It’s interesting to read about. Especially if you are a prospective customer.   Ultimately, it’s good practice to vary your content, keep your followers curious. The less predictable you are, the better. Otherwise, your content will become monotonous and disinteresting. Like what we've written? Maybe you should take a look at some other things we have to offer.

Work in your own way.

[row cols_nr="2"] [col size="6"] Imagine being able to have flexible work hours. Well, the good news is, you can. Now more than ever, people are looking for an easier way to manage their work life and home life with an equal balance. Sounds like a complicated task to achieve, right? Well, maybe there’s a solution: Virtual offices. ( rewrite this to make sense with the points in the articles).

Commute.

virtual office commute Work wouldn’t be so bad if we didn’t have to commute every day, right? Spending up to 3 hours a day getting too and from work. Not to mention getting ready in the morning. That’s wasted hours. Hours that could be more productively used elsewhere. A virtual office means you can work from home. Don’t waste your time purchasing an office, just to spend most of your time travelling to get there. Imagine what you could get done with those 3 extra hours a day. You could finish work early, spend time with your family and friends, or even relax and have some ‘me time’. Oh, and save yourself some cash. No more bus fare, train fare or so much petrol for your car. You can save time on all the underlooked things that happened day to day

Talent.

Talent Find talent anywhere in the globe. Don’t restrict yourself to the location you’re based in. Expand your criteria. You’ve found an excellent candidate in Australia, but the distance seems to be a bit of a problem? Don’t hesitate, hire them! With a virtual office, you can allow them to work from home under the premise that they work for your company. They can lend you their expertise and not to mention, that member of staff can expand your businesses reach to wherever they are. You can go global.

Save some £££.

saving money Speaking of saving time. You can save money too. If you’re an employer, it’s costly to provide tech for everyone. Not to mention the electricity it costs to keep those computers and appliances running. If your employee’s work from home, it means that they’ll be using their own devices, their own refreshments, their own electricity. No to mention, there’s no physical space to rent. Rent for a physical office can be demanding. Especially if you’re in the hustle and bustle of the city. Prices can be through the roof for an office with limited space. Imagine what you could invest that extra money into  

Greener.

eco friendly Having a good ethos is an important one.  Now more than ever, people are creating ways to be greener and to have a more positive impact on the environment. Create a good impression for your company, by transitioning to a virtual office. There is no physical space to waste energy on, minimal waste produced by staff and it enables you to showcase your ethical principles to the world. By developing a morality around your business, you can build a relationship with your audience. Showing them, you are concerned with similar things as they are.

 Meeting rooms.

meeting conference table board room One of the main benefits of a virtual office is the meeting rooms. They’re often offered as a part of your plan and it means that you can meet your client in a central location, rather than at home. Whilst meeting your client in your own home is possible, it’s not the best thing to do. As it can make you seem unprofessional. Whereas, if you book your meetings in a central location that has a good appearance, you will be taken more seriously.

Virtual Office Benefits

[row cols_nr="2"] [col size="6"] Nowadays, people want a perfect balance between life, work and money. But, what if there's a way to achieve this? Well, maybe you can. Virtual offices are for entrepreneurs looking for a new way to work. Don't restrict yourself to the 9-5 time slot. Create more for yourself.

Commute.

virtual office commute Work wouldn’t be so bad if we didn’t have to commute every day, right? Spending up to 3 hours a day getting too and from work. Not to mention getting ready in the morning. That’s wasted hours. Hours that could be more productively used elsewhere. A virtual office means you can work from home. Don’t waste your time purchasing an office, just to spend most of your time travelling to get there. Imagine what you could get done with those 3 extra hours a day. You could finish work early, spend time with your family and friends, or even relax and have some ‘me time’. Oh, and save yourself some cash. No more bus fare, train fare or so much petrol for your car. You can save time on all the underlooked things that happened day to day.

Talent.

TalentFind talent anywhere in the globe. Don’t restrict yourself to the location you’re based in. Expand your criteria. You’ve found an excellent candidate in Australia, but the distance seems to be a bit of a problem? Don’t hesitate, hire them! With a virtual office, you can allow them to work from home under the premise that they work for your company. They can lend you their expertise and not to mention, that member of staff can expand your businesses reach to wherever they are. You can go global.

Save some £££.

saving moneySpeaking of saving time. You can save money too. If you’re an employer, it’s costly to provide tech for everyone. Not to mention the electricity it costs to keep those computers and appliances running. If your employee’s work from home, it means that they’ll be using their own devices, their own refreshments, their own electricity. No to mention, there’s no physical space to rent. Rent for a physical office can be demanding. Especially if you’re in the hustle and bustle of the city. Prices can be through the roof for an office with limited space. Imagine what you could invest that extra money into.

Greener.

eco friendlyHaving a good ethos is an important one.  Now more than ever, people are creating ways to be greener and to have a more positive impact on the environment. Create a good impression for your company, by transitioning to a virtual office. There is no physical space to waste energy on, minimal waste produced by staff and it enables you to showcase your ethical principles to the world. By developing a morality around your business, you can build a relationship with your audience. Showing them, you are concerned with similar things as they are.

 Meeting rooms.

Is it time to update your blog?

Blogs are an excellent way to create a buzz. But, if you fail to maintain that buzz, your popularity will soon fizzle out. The question is: Have you ever stopped to think about whether your technique suits your audience and not just yourself?

How to know if your blog needs updating…

This is what you’re waiting for… is your blog in need of an update?

An abundance of text.

too much textIf your blog is created from text alone, no images, no videos, then you need a revamp. Users are attracted by visuals. I can’t say it enough, but visuals are the most important element of any piece of content. They help individuals retain more information than text that stands alone. To be more precise, a study from the Social Science Research Network showed that 65% of people are visual learners. Information is more likely to hit home if it has relative images that coincide with what is being said.

 Repeating topics that already exist.

repeating content that already existsIf you’re constantly writing about the same topic repeatedly, in ‘different’ ways, then it’s time to consider reworking your blog. It will become monotonous for your readers; you will become predictable. And, let's face it, after a while, it will become hard to write about the same thing continuously. More importantly, it will become mind dulling. Expanding upon what you write is the way to go! Give your audience something fresh to read. Otherwise, you’ll lose all engagement if it’s the same thing time after time. Your blog will end up outliving its usefulness.

Lack of a new perspective.

new perspectiveThis is very similar to rewriting content. Except, instead of writing the same thing repeatedly, you’re writing things that provide information that’s already out there. If you’re not providing content that’s unique, what’s the point? If you’re able to find the solution to a problem on the front page of Google, that’s been written a billion times over by a billion-different people, are you really doing yourself justice? The answer is probably no. Produce new content that's unheard of. Stop focusing on content that's already out there.

Demands.

customer demandsDoes your blog meet the demands of your audience? Creating a blog post is more than writing some content and slapping some images into it. Audiences want multimedia content. Videos, images, GIFs. User retention is an important factor. By adding in multimedia content, you create natural breaks. Breaks that are needed to keep users on your site. You want longer sessions on your website, right? Do more, to keep people there longer. If your blog posts aren't created to your target audience, then what are you doing? Remember it’s their interaction you want; their engagement you need. If you’re neglecting all these factors, you’re not doing yourself or your business justice and it's time for a change.

How can I update my blog?

renovating your blogUpdating your blog can be a lengthy process. But to make things successful, it takes time and patience. Look at where your blog has its downfalls and try to improve it. Of course, that’s easier said than done. Instead of backlogging through all your past posts and updating them to meet standards, focus how your attitude toward newer blog posts. Add multimedia pieces to bulk up your content and add interest. Even better, acknowledge your alterations online. Make sure that your audience knows you’ve taken a new approach to your blog; that things are changing for the better, to suit their needs. It’s also worthwhile to do your homework. What makes a good blog piece? You can’t master something out of thin air without having any background knowledge. Be mindful of what you’re producing and why you’re producing it. What’s your aim? Is it to produce conversions? Or is it to create a better brand persona online? Find what you want out of your blog posts and alter them accordingly. Remember, a better blog means better engagement.

Goggle Updates

Why are Google updates important to your business?

The primary aim of Google is to provide the best user experience possible. They must ensure that content has relevancy and that it is authoritative, in relation to a question that is inputted by the user. And, updates are used to ensure that this remains a consistent factor. However, these updates aren’t always made obvious. Google keeps them on the down-low. This is to ensure that the algorithms aren’t taken advantage of, to gain a superior ranking on the front page.

But why are these updates so important to businesses?

content for google algorithmsIf you want more visibility, you must first align with Googles algorithms. If your content is seen as relevant and authoritative in correlation to a query, you’re more likely to be an ample source. Boosting your ranking. That’s easier said than done. Google doesn’t outline the criteria needed to meet their expectations. This is so content curators will always try to provide quality content, allowing them to be on the front page of Google. Call it an incentive, if you will. This is what makes the updates so important to your business. If your content doesn’t meet standards set out by Google, you will lose your ranking. Diminishing your reputation and potentially leaving you on the dreaded second page of Google. No one wants to be there, all forgotten. These updates are gradual, so, you have time to alter your techniques as they come into play. BUT, these updates are ambiguous. Writing content to suit Google, is based on speculation until you get it right.

Conclusion

In correlation with your business, updates are important for several things. Firstly, to optimise the quality of content that is created. Google only wants the best to be at the forefront of their page; to provide ample answers for its customers. If user experience ceases to exist, the platform will inevitably fail. Secondly, updates provide a best practice. Writing in such a way that it is most effective for the user is what they need. Updates allow industries to stay focused and produce the best quality content they can. Especially if they strive to be on the front page of google. And, Finally, updates ensure that necessary content is brought to the attention of the user. When users scour the internet for a solution, they want the best possible answer. It must relate to the question in the closet way possible. This is achieved by optimising your content to its maximum potential. If there's anything else we can help you with, let us know.
motivation

How to motivate yourself for work

Motivation. It's an important factor in any entrepreneurs life. Without it, your dreams are unable to become reality. It's the driving force that makes us determined to become successful. And, it's fair to say that it's not easy to motivate yourself. But, fear not, we at No1 have compiled a list of ways to motivate yourself; to push that procrastination aside.  

Take it step by step.

step by stepDon't over complicate things. Break your tasks down into small easy steps that are easy to achieve. Setting out one big task for yourself can often become overwhelming and off-putting. Let's say you've set yourself the task of writing a book. You wouldn't write the entire book then and there. You'd break it down into bite-sized chunks. Firstly, establishing the concept, then the research and finally the content. Apply this concept to everything that you do. Don't overexert yourself.  

5,4,3,2,1 GO!

Sometimes all you need are a few seconds to push yourself into doing something. You know the feeling... being sat there on the sofa knowing things have to be done, but you don't have the energy to move. Use 5,4,3,2,1 GO! as a way to push yourself into to doing more. It's especially useful if you're not 'feeling it'. And, you'll be surprised at the results. Occasionally, we need that extra boost to get our work started and this is a sure fire way to do it.  

Eliminate distractions.

technologyLife is full of distractions, especially now technology plays a humongous factor in day to day life. Things like Facebook, Instagram, Youtube and Twitter can distract us from what is most important. Find your motivation by sitting in a quiet environment, perhaps your home office, turn off all unnecessary electronic devices and get to work. Limit your distractions as much as possible. You'll thank yourself later.  

Simplify tasks.

simplicityThis is similar to our first point 'Take it step by step'. However, it's more focused on reducing your daily to-do list to a few things, or maybe even one thing to make your day more manageable and enjoyable. Often setting out too many tasks to accomplish can be a huge weight on your shoulders; something that seems too tedious to fulfil. Rather than having 10 things to do that day, limit yourself to just 2 things from that list. Especially if they are large tasks to complete.  

Clear your workspace.

clear work spaceA clear workspace is a clear mind. Having a minimalistic and decluttered workspace helps you think more clearly. Having a hectic workspace can be distracting and it will mean your motivation will diminish very easily. A clear desk helps you start the day fresh. It also encourages a good practice for staying motivated. If you retain a clear desk space, you will be able to align your thoughts with your surroundings.  

Take a breather.

clear mindTaking time away from your workflow will do you the world of good. Even if it's 10 minutes away from your desk. Eat a snack, check the internet or take a walk. Don't force yourself to do continual work, you'll run yourself down otherwise. Take a breather and afterwards, you'll feel refreshed. By removing yourself from your desk and doing something proactive, you will help yourself with the motivational process.   Motivating yourself can be difficult. Especially if you're your own Boss and everything relies on your ability to get things done. But, the most important thing to take away from this is that you need to simplify things and take your time. Whether it be breaking up daily tasks, cutting down your to-do list or taking short breaks to help yourself get back on track. Always remember, success doesn't happen overnight.

Entrepreneur

6 Entrepreneurial Quotes to live by.

Being an entrepreneur comes with its ups and downs. And, sometimes it's down to you to be your own driving force. With that in mind, we've created a list of some inspirational quotes to be the driving force in everything you do.

Jim Rohn- "Either you run the day, or the day runs you".

Be in control of your day, your mood, how things play out. If you stumble, pick yourself back up and get on with it. Don't let one negative situation ruin your day.

 Rand Fishkin, Moz- “Don’t build links. Build relationships".

Focus on building relationships. This is the most important thing you can do as an entrepreneur. When you create connections with your customers, you create loyalty.

Winston Churchill -Success is walking from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm.”

Never lose your enthusiasm, no matter how many times you fail. Failing is part of the learning process. You can't succeed without knowing where your failures lay.

 Albert Schweitzer- Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.

This one's simple. Always enjoy what you do. And, if you're already doing what you love most, you've already achieved everything you've set out to do. You must always be passionate about what you are doing.

Farrah Gray- “Build your own dreams, or someone else will hire you to build theirs.”

Don't hesitate in making your dreams a reality. If you don't act upon your ambitions now, you'll end up working for someone else instead of working independently towards your own dreams.

Tim Ferris- “Think big and don’t listen to people who tell you it can’t be done. Life’s too short to think small.”

Life is too short to not take the chance to do what you love, even if people don't entirely agree with your idea. Persevere and always be determined to reach your goals.
which social media platform is best

Which social media platform suits your business?

Social Media is a funny thing. It can connect you to all corners of the globe, within a matter of seconds and you don't even have to leave the spot you're sat in. It's the perfect place to advertise your business, create meaningful relationships with customers and appeal to your demographics. But, which platform is more suited to your way of doing things? Let take a look.  

Facebook.

using a laptop to access social mediaWe'll start off with Facebook, as it has the biggest demographic of people. With over 2 billion people worldwide, that's a hell of a lot of people to reach. However, because of its versatility, when it comes to demographics, you can use that to your advantage. Especially if your target market is broad. Facebook integrates a plethora of different mediums into its platform. From GIFs (Graphics Interchange Format for those of you who don't know), Videos and Images. When combined, these can be a handy tool to draw attention to your campaigns. Visuals are the most important thing you can include in your posts. And, if you're a business page, you have extensive tools at the tips of your fingers. Did you know you have access to an insights tab if you have a business page? This handy tool allows you to view your demographics. Which age group interacts with you most and which age group tends to steer away from you. From this, you can customise your content style to them.  

Instagram.

selfie for instagramInstagram reaches over 800 Millions users per month. That's a lot of people. And, it's an excellent platform to showcase your personality and create a bond with your customers. Show pictures of the team, your products and maybe networking events. Anything you feel that will spark interest in your audience. Additionally, incorporating hashtags within your posts will boost visibility and increase engagement. You can have up to 30 hashtags per post, so think of the most relevant ones to your audience. Let's not forget Instagram Live/Stories either. They add a more personal connection with your followers. Let them see what else going on behind the scenes other than your posts. Instagram Live is particularly useful for live interaction with your audience. Answering their questions and queries then and there. It shows them there's a face behind the camera; a personality. Instagram is particularly useful for businesses that rely heavily on visuals to promote their products. Whether it's skincare, food, clothing or anything similar.  

SNAPCHAT.

posing for a snapchat selfieI'll cut straight to the chase with this one. Snapchat appeals to the majority of the younger generation. In the UK it is estimated that 61% of Snapchat's users are under the age of 30. Snapchat is perfect for creating short, yet informative content in a unique way. Of course, this platform relies heavily on videos and visuals so use it to your advantage. You could create short a snappy interviews, review products, discuss the latest topics in your industry. Video marketing is on the rise, so it's important to consider this platform as a strong candidate.  

LinkedIn.

business man fixing his tieLinkedIn is mainly targetted towards businesses. With over 94% of B2B Marketers using it as a platform to distribute content.  It's primarily used as a platform to hunt for jobs or recruit new members. However, it does have its usefulness. With it being at the forefront of connecting B2B buyers and sellers. It's seen as a trustworthy platform to produce content and create a professional brand for your business. Alongside building and maintaining relationships with other business professionals. This platform offers real-time sales updates, lead recommendation and suggestions and the ability to target audiences based on their seniority rather than age. This is the perfect platform for targetting serious clients or "corporate business", so to speak. To conclude, each social media platform is unique in its own right. But, it's down to you which one is best suited to your businesses goals. That's not to say, however, that you can't use more than one, or even all of them for different purposes. Just make sure it's right for you and your long-term goals.
digital marketing strategies

Digital Marketing Strategy: For Beginners.

Let’s imagine you’re in the market to start a new business. Getting it off the ground can be difficult, especially in the online world. You’ve got expertise in your field but struggle when it comes to online marketing. This is where a digital marketing strategy comes into play. Of course, you’re here because you don’t have the budget for a professional, and you’re trying to teach yourself. A digital marketing strategy can be especially complex if you’ve no experience. In this guide, for beginner’s, we’ll be looking at key factors to consider when planning a digital marketing strategy. These factors will include a Blog, Social Media, SEO, Web Design and PPC.

A Blog.

writing a blogA blog creates a connection between you and your audience. Discuss relevant topics that will intrigue your audience, write about your products and services, or even about current events that are relevant to your industry. You’ll be seen as perceptive and in touch with the world, and your customers. It’s the perfect tool to build up a brand and a persona. By distinguishing your persona, you can build a bridge between you and your customers. This is done by creating useful and trustworthy content. It’s also a good idea to optimise your blog by adding relevant keywords. Think like your customer. Add keywords to your blog that are relevant to how your customer would search for your information. The more detailed the better.

Social Media.

social media marketing strategyWhen it comes to your digital marketing strategy, social media is the most irreplaceable tool you can have access to. You could say that it is the centre of the internet. If you’re not utilising this within your strategy, then you may as well give up. With a decent social media presence, you can build healthy relationships with your customers. Good relationships = loyalty. And, it’s an excellent place to engage with customers by answering their query’s and replying to their complaints. Being attentive toward your customers encourages their engagement. But, most importantly, social media is used as a means building up your persona. Just like your blog will do. Inject personality into your brand by sharing funny tweets/facebook posts, GIFs and stories. If you can make people laugh, they will share.

SEO.

seo search engine optimisation Optimising your online presence is key to becoming an authoritative page, organically. If you wish to be on the front page of Google, this is the way to go. To do this, you must make sure that your content is rich with keywords. This allows Googles bots to determine if your content is relevant in relation to queries inputted by users. You’re probably wondering how to gain access to keywords relevant to your target audience. We suggest Google AdWords. A free tool that helps you identify your most popular keywords. From there you can utilise those keywords in your content. BUT, it is important to mention that when you write content the keywords must appear naturally. By this, we mean that Google will penalise you for packing in keywords for the sake of it. The same goes for link building. Link building is essentially adding links to your content that give your content credibility and show you to be a trustworthy source. But they must merge with your content organically as mentioned.

Web Design.

responsive web design with good user experienceA good web design is key to a successful digital marketing strategy. If it isn’t easy to navigate and has a poor user experience, you will lose out. You don’t want a complicated web design that confuses your customers. And, if they can’t find what they’re looking for then they will leave. Again, Google will penalise you for bad optimisation. The same goes for mobile websites. If your website isn’t fully optimised for mobile users, you will lose authoritative status. This is especially important as 51% of users access the web via their mobile phones.

PPC.

PPCThis is the best way to directly connect with your audience. The best thing about PPC is that you can have complete control over your budget. It enables you to alter how much you want to spend on an advert. So, if your budget isn’t huge you can create an advertisement that suits your pocket. Other benefits of having PPC is that you can be specific with your advertising. You can decide when you want your advert to show and where. For example, your company is based in Brighton and you target mothers that are home between the hours of 12 PM- 3 PM. You can design your advertisements around these factors, so they are more likely to see them and engage. Don’t underlook PPC as a part of your digital marketing strategy. If you are an entrepreneur going it alone with your digital marketing strategy, it is vitally important that you always include the points above. This way, you can ensure that you are maximising your campaigns to the best of your ability! Need help with anything else? Tenant CBF Creative can help - Contact them today!

Looking for a Serviced Office in Gloucester?

With so many options in Gloucester now to house your business how do you find a good home for your staff and your business. But how do they differ and are the national brands any better than the local businesses? We all know Regus and Biz Space, Formal Offices but as lovely as their sites are.  Do you know what you're looking for when it comes to a Serviced Office?  We all offer a secure heated location to home your desks.  We have secure entrances, meeting rooms and kitchens for you and your staff to Building Access You may need 24/7 access?  This is not available at all Serviced Office site.  So many of our Entrepreneurs work weekends and evenings. Internet Access How important is internet access for you and your business? We have seen the larger companies throttle your access to suit their needs, not yours and then charge you a premium for better access.  We offer one level 350mpbs Virgin fibre lines that will support anything you can throw at it. Car Parking As with all city locations, parking is at a premium.  In Gloucester, this is no different, with limited car parking available at all locations a few of our competitors have been known to charge extra if you want a space or multiples.  All our Serviced Offices come with allocated car parking and access to our visitor's spaces where needed. Cleaning Smaller Serviced Apartment Operators do not have the budgets to be able to offer a cleaning service.  The larger ones want to charge you for the privilege. All our Serviced apartments are cleaned weekly as part of the one monthly fee. Meeting Rooms As important as your office space.  Meeting your staff and clients in a professional environment is all important to give a great impression.  With all beverage facilities to satisfy all tastes, catering if required and projection equipment for a larger perspective on your latest creation or presentation. All Serviced Office operators seem to charge additionally for their meeting spaces on top of your office rental charges.  At No1 one inclusive monthly rent is just that.  No surprise rates, maintenance or utility bills. One bill does it all with CBF and you will find that even with everything as one we are still cheaper than the competition. Call us today to find out what you're missing - 01452 346836
