Forward planning for your business location Created on 09/01/2013 13:28:00
Forward planning should help your business to focus on targets, use your resources effectively and motivate your employees. One of the keys to making your business a success is choosing a suitable location for your office space. Here are some of the questions you should ask yourself during the planning stages:
What type of location is best for your business?
Consider all the factors that will contribute to the growth of your business. Will customers/clients drive to your offices, and if so, is parking available? How will the reputation of the area affect people’s view of your business? Will you be surrounded by other thriving businesses or caught in no-man’s-land?
What facilities will you need at that location?
Your location requirements will very much depend on the function of your business. If you run a coffee shop, for example, you will need catering facilities; while if your business is a marketing firm, you will need the latest technology to keep it going. While landlords may agree to make minor changes, it may be easier (and cheaper) to narrow your search criteria before your start. List the facilities you need and look for premises that already offer them. It’s also worth considering whether the facilities and location will allow you to expand as you grow the business.
Can you afford it?
More often than not, people rent rather than buy their offices and business premises. When you put together your business plan, you should have estimated how much rent your business would be able to pay given projected revenues and other expenses. Work out how much your budget allows you to spend on rent, adding any additional costs such as telecommunications and parking permits if these are not included.
