Anyone running a small business will require some sort of space in which to run the everyday affairs of their business. After all, a business needs some sort of physical or "virtual" location as a point of contact for customers and partners. It's in the office where the majority of the business dealings takes place. Like all business owners, you want to be able to keep your expenses to a minimum, as well as have the flexibility in a space that can meet your needs. Luckily, the serviced office industry is increasing, offering small business owners a number of advantages that are simply not provided with a traditional office space. Here are just three out of the many reasons why the serviced office option can be the perfect solution for you.

Save Money Without the Added Overhead

One of the key advantages of choosing to use a serviced office as opposed to a traditional space is the all-encompassing rent. You won't find any additional costs that you have to pay on top of your monthly rent serviced office, making it easy and economical to manage your lease payments. All of the "extras" that may be associated with traditional leases are included with a serviced office, including heating/air conditioning, security, building maintenance, landscaping, lighting and electricity, cleaning, elevators, insurance, and so forth.

Ready for Immediate Occupation

Instead of leasing out a specific office unit and having to make all the alterations and additions yourself, a serviced office comes completely equipped with everything you need to run your business. This is a total solution for small businesses because such spaces come fully equipped and loaded with all the tools you need to keep up with your day-to-day activities. You'll be provided with amenities such as conference facilities, high speed Internet access, telephone answering services, reception support, security, video conferencing, and so forth.

Flexibility in Lease Length

It can be quite difficult for businesses - especially new ones - to accurately predict their overhead figures over a certain time span. Many office spaces typically require a business owner to enter into a lengthy lease of at least 12 months or longer. One of the major differences between a traditional office space and a serviced office is the length of the lease. Business owners have the flexibility to choose a lease length that is much shorter, so that long-term commitment isn't necessary. You can take out an office lease for as little as 3 months if that's all you require. This difference in lease lengths gives business owners the flexibility needed to shrink or expand as the business carries on. Taking on the additional space only when needed can also help to keep the overhead low, which is particularly helpful during the early phases of a start-up business.

Running your business with a serviced office can offer you the affordability and conveniences that you simply won't get with a traditional office space. If you're looking to take advantage of the benefits that a serviced office provides, and are in the London, Mayfair or surrounding areas, check out ServicedOfficesMayfair.com. We can help you find the ideal office space to run your small business conveniently and affordably!

If you're working from a serviced office, it's especially important that you have a good social media presence. As many business owners are aware, a strong social media strategy can really help take your business to the next level. But a bad social media strategy? Well, that's another story altogether. Here are six social media faux pas that you absolutely must avoid if you want your serviced office business to succeed.

The Empty Facebook Page

Some business owners seem to think that a good social media strategy simply involves having an open account on all the right social media sites—simply set up a Facebook page and wait for the conversions to roll in! However, having an incomplete profile or leaving a profile unattended can often be worse than having no profile at all. This sends the message that either the business is lazy about their social media strategy, or, worse, that the business doesn't exist anymore.

The Random Social Media Strategy

While some companies don't post enough on their social media profiles, there are others that post way too much. A good social media strategy should be focused and serve to build up your brand, which means that you shouldn't just post or retweet everything that happens to strike your fancy at the moment.

The Impersonal Social Media Post

Social media tools are great for welcoming all sorts of different languages and conversations, but one type of language that is not welcome on social media is corporate jargon. If your social media posts are too stuffy or full of marketing speak, you'll only end up hurting your business.

The Twitter Diatribe

On the other end of the spectrum from the impersonal social media post is the Twitter diatribe. While some companies are good at keeping their social media posts sounding human, some can get a little too human. Yes, Twitter is a great place to exchange ideas, but there's no need to get belligerent. Remember that if someone posts something critical about your business on social media, the worst way to respond is to start an argument with that person.

The #UsingWayTooManyHashtags Social Media Strategy

Yes, hashtags can be a good way to create engagement online, but for the most part, it seems like the hashtag trend is basically over. In fact, new research from Buffer shows that tweets with three or more hashtags actually get 21% less engagement than tweets that use less than three hashtags.

The “Using Every World Event As a Marketing Opportunity” Strategy

One final tip that businesses must be aware of is that not every world event should be used as an opportunity to promote your brand online. Case in point: During the aftermath of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, food retailer Epicurious tweeted: "In honour of Boston and New England, may we suggest: whole grain cranberry scones!" Yes, social media is a great tool for staying connected with what's going on around the world, but obviously there are times when jumping on a world event to promote your brand is simply not acceptable.

Often, the best tool to use when it comes to your social media strategy is some good old-fashioned common sense. However, you'd be surprised how many companies leave this out of the equation! Use your common sense wisely and you should be able to avoid these six deadly social media sins and keep your serviced office business flourishing.

When growing into a new or untapped market, serviced office space can be the way to go for small or medium sized businesses that are still in the process of expanding their customer base. The difficulty, however, comes with trying to find an appropriate building in an ideal location, especially for a busy city such as London. This is where professional advice from a group like ServicedOfficesMayfair.com can come in handy. We can help you find some of the best spots around London for your business to set up an office. One location in particular that we invite you to consider is the area known as Shepherd Market.

A Modernized Area Rich With History and Old World Charm

One aspect of Shepherd Market that sets it apart is that, despite having become one of London's top destinations for shopping and fine dining, this area has also maintained all the old world charm of its village square setup – a design that hearkens back to a time when the village square was the centre of attention for entirely different reasons. Shepherd Market used to be one of the city's top regions when it came to cattle trading during the 17th and 18th centuries, after which, at the beginning of the 20th century, the area quickly evolved to become one of the most sought after residential districts. From there, over the course of the next several decades, it gradually became home to the majority of the city's aristocracy. Then the times changed once more and the area adapted again to become what its residents know today: a hub of modern living that still contains the subtle feel of the old world village it used to be long ago.

High Quality Spots for Dining, Drinking, and Shopping

As the backdrop for your new serviced office, Shepherd Market offers convenient access to many different dining, drinking, and shopping destinations. A lot of its local restaurants are considered by area residents to be so-called "hidden gems" of dining. Among Shepherd Market's very best establishments are L'Artiste Muscle (a French wine bar that also serves delicious seafood to compliment any drink selection), L'Autre (a Polish/Mexican bistro that serves filling regional dishes along with fresh fish and game), Le Boudin Blanc (a French restaurant touted as one of the top such establishments outside France), and Al Hamra (a Lebanese restaurant that offers authentic cuisine consisting of varied and healthy dishes). Later on in the day, the many area pubs open up, so an after work drink is always only a block or two away. Along with drinking and eating, Shepherd Market also makes it quite easy to find any item or gift you need with its selection of quality shops and boutiques that sell everything you could imagine from clothes and jewellery to luggage and tobacco.

Quick and Convenient Accessibility via Many Different Transportation Options

For getting to and from Shepherd Market, the area itself is situated in an ideal spot whether you're looking to drive or take public transport. Located a mere four minutes to the east at Piccadilly Road, the Green Park tube station serves as a quick access point. Also available for consideration are the area's many bus routes, which come in from around the city directly to Green Park station. Included among these are routes 9, 12, 14, 19, 22, 38, and C2. Finally, for drivers, accessing Shepherd Park is just as easy via one of the two main roadways – Piccadilly to the area's south and Park Lane along its eastern side ¬– found a minute or so outside the neighbourhood. Whichever method you choose, getting to and from your serviced office in Shepherd Market won't ever have to be of concern to you or your employees.

Acquiring serviced office space in London is a great way to expand any small or mid-range business, and Shepherd Market in particular is right up there among some of the top location options to choose from. It can provide you with a locale that's modern yet still rich with history and old world charm, that contains plenty of options for dining, drinking and shopping, and that's accessible from anywhere else in the city via many different transportation options.
