5 Ways Freelancers Can Benefit From A Meeting Room
As a freelancer you might be getting your daily work done from the comfort of your home office, your favorite coffee shop or maybe that coworking space you love and book a few days a week.
But what happens when you need to have a business meeting with a potential client or partner? What about if you want to have a video conference or conduct a webinar to showcase your product or service?
Instead of pitching your clients at your home office (SSID: Wi Fi Fo Fum), it’s time to find a better solution. It’s time you book a meeting room.
Here’s 5 reasons why:
1. A meeting room conveys professionalism
When you meet your clients or business partners in a setting that was designed for business you are signaling to them that you take your company and their time seriously, and they in turn will treat you with respect. Additionally you ensure that the meeting happens in a quiet place with no distractions.
2. Meeting rooms are fully equipped
Meeting rooms are usually equipped with the latest technology. You will have access to presentation tools such as smart boards, LCD projectors, plasma screens, high speed internet.
3. Impressive location
When you book a meeting room you are able to choose a great location to conduct your business. This helps you by creating an excellent impression on your business partners and potential clients. You should look to book a meeting room in a well known office building such as the Willis Tower in Chicago or Rockefeller Center in New York City, this also helps the people attending the meeting to find you more easily.
4. Business Services
Booking a meeting room means you get access to a photocopier, a printer, fax, mailing, and other business services. This beats running to the nearest copy shop 5 minutes before the meeting because you forgot to print out extra brochures.
Food and beverage catering is something you should consider when you book a meeting room. Keeping everyone fed and taken care of ensures everyone stays focused and shows your clients that you care about their needs.
These are a few reasons why you should book a meeting room for your business, there are many more. The most important reason is that it’s a great way to take your freelance business to the next level.
