First of all, creating business for other people in your own space doesn’t have to be at expense of your own company. Think of it as a symbiotic relationship: if you have your own company, one in which you need an office space and all the entrees, then you’ll be likely to branch out into hiring services to keep this area in check. You’ll need to do this for both yourself and who you’re renting your office from, if you’ve made such a contract. So what businesses can you fit into yours to successfully complement each other?
Use A Domestic Cleaning Service
Unless you work in the cleaning sector yourself, you can hire out some office cleaning services that cuts down on your own workload and ensures everything is kept up to code. Hiring a cleaning service is a great benefit to you as the business owner as it ensures the job is done properly whilst you work on your projects. It also means you don’t have to fork out for your own crew and their upkeep. You can potentially fit more time into your day after all!
It’s also a way to let people, students especially, make some extra money that they desperately need. A cleaning service is one in which people learn by doing, so you can be ensured that everyone on the payroll knows what they’re doing.
Use A Printer Hiring Service
So every office needs a printer, but all the ink and paper and possible downtime can add up, especially when you don’t have the profits to keep up with it. You can start waste paper drives and keep everything in digital format, but it’s good practice to have a hard copy of everything.
Why not hire out a printer service? This can keep your own costs down with no maintenance having to be served by your own company. It also means you only have the printer when you need it, so it can be a weekly effort if necessary.
Buy Or Hire Out Some Art Pieces
So it can get boring staring at the same four walls; you can’t blame employees for stagnating slightly with no other stimulation. Having a creative art piece on your wall fills space and shows any clients coming into your office that you have a strong aesthetic for your brand. It’s also been shown to inspire employees.
Get some modern art on your wall for a nice look, whether it’s a rented piece or your own outright. If you decide to hire, it means you can rotate the pieces you have on a monthly cycle, and at no extra cost to yourself. It also means you’re supporting artists and local upcoming talent, as everyone deserves to have a bit of their art on somebody’s wall.
You’re never alone in the business world when it comes to making your own brand succeed. A whole collaborative effort can be made to present you in the best way, and show up the competition!
