For many businesses and sole traders alike, the new calendar year represents an opportunity to get a fresh start – defining your business goals and implementing practical measures to hit your 2018 targets.
When creating your 2018 strategy, don’t overlook the critical role office space and support services can play in your business!
Whether it’s planning for aggressive growth and the associated up-staffing, maximising productivity, or simply projecting a professional image into the market, workspaces are the foundation upon which successful businesses are built.
Today, more than ever, there is so much choice available for those wanting to enjoy the benefits a flexible workspace can provide and Corporate House is leading the market with our customer focused offerings.
Below we’ll run through 4 scenarios in which a flexible workspace, available across all Corporate House locations, can be leveraged by both individuals and businesses to achieve the lofty goals set for the year ahead.
Casual Meeting Room Hire – Portray a Professional Image
If you’re a sole trader and planning to target bigger, more profitable clientele in 2018, conducting client pitches in your local coffee shop isn’t going to cut it. As with any service based business, clients will be looking for ‘physical evidence’ (one of the 7 P’s of Marketing), of your ability and professionalism. Casual meeting room hire at one of Corporate House’s location is a cost effective way of instilling confidence in potential clients and winning more business. With our opulent fitouts, prestigious locations and affordable hourly rates, casual meeting room hire is a relatively small investment that can take your business to the next level.
Coworking Space – Collaborate, Network & Socialise
In business, they say your “network is your net worth”, which has never been more true in 2018. If you run a small service based business from home, you could potentially missing out on hundreds of opportunities each year to network, collaborate and generate business referrals. Corporate House has coworking space available across 8 locations throughout Brisbane, Ipswich & The Gold Coast. For just $499 per month, you’ll have access to everything you need to run your business amongst like minded professionals and expand your network of contacts.

Serviced Offices – Flexible Terms For Start-up Businesses
In late 2017, it was revealed Queensland has the second highest number of tech start-ups in Australia, which means competition for venture capital funding in the Sunshine Start has never been higher. If you’ve recently acquired a capital investment, or are preparing to pitch for funding, controlling your overheads is critical in maintaining your ‘runway’ or impressing potential investors. A serviced office at a Corporate House location is one of the most efficient ways of controlling your expenditure on office space, allowing you to easily scale the amount of office space up or down as your business requires. With a long list of inclusions, including unlimited business grade fibre internet, our serviced offices come with everything you need to be instantly operational and hit your business milestones in 2018.
Virtual Offices – Capture Every Lead
If you’re a mobile based business, such as a tradesperson, and spend your days out on the tools, being responsive to customer enquiries can be a difficult proposition. Missed calls can more often than not equate to missed revenue, and even when you are able to answer customer calls, the background noise and poor reception in some locations can be an unwanted distraction. A virtual office at one of Corporate House’s locations provides full admin support, including professional phone answering with a customised greeting, dedicated local business phone number plus many other benefits to help you present a professional image at all times and capitalise on every business opportunity.
