Business owners know they’re going to have to ride the struggle bus when they’re getting their businesses started. There are tons of things to worry about from finances to real estate.
Fortunately, there are a few ways you can actually save money when starting your business by being smart about where to set up your startup location. Here are four location tips to consider when starting your own business to help you stay on budget.
- Run your business from your house. You might feel like a cliche setting up your business in your garage or basement. But you’d be surprised by just how many small businesses first started in their CEO’s house. When you’re in the process of building your business from scratch, don’t worry too much about what your business looks like on the outside. Instead, focus on the inside.
- Rent a virtual office space. As your business grows and you start to catch the eye of potential investors, you may need an office space to host meetings. The good news is you can actually rent a virtual office space to host these meetings. You can also rent a P.O. box to have an official mailing address that isn’t your place of residence so your business can still look official while you save money by running everything from home.
- Outsource and go digital. Many businesses today are running digitally. If it makes sense for your company to go digital, consider outsourcing your employees and operations. This way, you don’t need to have a designated office space for everyone to come to work.
- Invest in a pop up shop. When you’ve officially outgrown the garage and your business needs its own designated space, consider investing in pop up containers. It can be tricky to find an office space that’s small enough for your startup but isn’t shared with other businesses. Pop up shops give you the ability to customize your property while also being able to move your business wherever you need it to go.
