Question: When you're moving offices, what's one easy thing to overlook that you should keep in mind?
Trash and Extension Cords
"When we moved, all the trash from the moving supplies and new furniture we ordered piled up so high, no one could walk around the office suite to unpack. I recommend planning an exit strategy for your trash. We also didn't consider how much bigger our space would be, so weren't prepared with extension cords and couldn't turn anything on."
Adjusting to a New Environment
"When some of my entrepreneur friends move into new offices, they start by changing their environment. Some even straight up move into a private office. Soon, however, they realize that they are missing the old environment that they were so used to: the startup environment."
"Believe it or not, office supplies. It’s extremely easy to overlook nicknacks like staplers, paper clips, or pens when you switch from one office to another - there’s already so much to take care of, after all. But you don’t want to get settled into your new digs only to realize you’re running short on paper in the middle of a meeting."
Making It Yours
"When you, an employee, or a potential client walks in, you want them to have a good feeling about you and your brand. If you were to post photos of the office, inside and out, would you be proud? Would others be able to tell that your brand lives there? Are other businesses in the area complementary to you? We have made it a place that we enjoy going to and be productive as well."
Loosing Your Local Business Rankings
"In the age of search, it baffles me how many business owners forget the importance of this. Update your website and Google Business Page, close any business location page that belonged there before you. Lastly, update all your social media profiles and directory listings."
