Tips to create the right impressions for your SME

Tips to create the right impressions for your SME

by | Nov 7, 2014 | Blog, Company Formation Services, Tips & Advice, Uncategorized, Virtual Office | 0 comments

There are several benefits of being in business, including the increased adaptability and flexibility than other larger companies may sometimes lack. However, customers will often associate SME`s with being ill-equipped to carry out a quality job.

To help with this, these tips can make it appear your newly formed company appear more important:

Office: yes or no?

Having offices can certainly help clients see that you are clearly established, because there is real concrete evidence to this effect. However, if they are not likely to visit your offices, then hiring out a mailing address will have the same effect at a fraction of the cost, allowing you to continue using your home, office, services and other, more flexible alternatives that work out much more cheaply.

Having a tip-top website

Today, people expect from a well-designed website one that loads quickly and allows them to discover the products and contact details. Therefore, make sure that your site is certain to help convince them that they are dealing with a professional, reputable company. Why not write blogs about business achievements, using pictures of the front of the office or somewhere similar with an elegant look to make them keen to see more.

Get away from email failure

Having an e-mail which is overly personal or that has a Hotmail address for example, will not make you look significant enough. Contacting through e-mail is as important as the address of the office to create a professional impression, so make sure that the e-mail address says it’s a good deal.

Logo or not

The company logo can do a lot to even the smallest businesses to exude professionalism, if you choose one that combines style and timelessness. Getting the right kind of logo takes time, but it will definitely be worth it in the end.

Keeping things Tidy and Organised

You may have to take care of the cleaning of office space to give the best impressions, but what about your desk?

If your office is a mess, it is likely to be much less efficient than it could be. An untidy or unorganised work surface hinders the member of staff`s ability to do their job as efficiently as possible, so you must bear in mind the following tips to keep your desk clean in action and create surroundings that make your company look great:

Place the bin close to your desktop

Having a bin a short distance from the workplace is one of the simplest steps you can take to keep your desk clean. Place all rubbish straight into the bin, and stop allowing it to build up on the desktop.

Incorporate a physical inbox

It could be something as simple as a paper tray that can hold all incoming documents. This way, you will know exactly where they are and when you need them.

Go paperless

It is a big ask to go paperless 100% in an office space, but there are many elements, such as notes, which can and should be transmitted digitally, if you want to keep a clean and tidy office environment.

Schedule Cleaning

You should try to regularly commit to a schedule of cleaning your desk. By assigning a specific period of time to sorting out your desk, it is more likely that it will actually do its job more effectively.

Remove excess

If something does not have to be on your desktop, just get rid of it and the saem applies around the office. For a start up business, these tips should set you on the right road to success.

First impressions are so important, a virtual office can provide the same benefits as a real office. A virtual office gives a small business the same advantages but without the expensive overheads. A good virtual office provider can help your company with a prime mail forwarding address in areas such as London, a professional PA call answering service, and a registered office address for your company. Ultimately an established business will be able to give the right impression, for start ups and SME’s getting off on the right footing can prove trickier.
