Having A Shared Office Space May Help New Businesses

 

Every generation has its own quirks. Each has defining traits that people from later generations can point to and identify with little to no effort. Now Generation X is yielding to the generation that has been dubbed Millennials. While Generation X straddled the line between a sense of community and individualism, the Millennials have embraced the need for community fully. This changes so many things.

Millennials will be the driving force in society. Not surprisingly, businesses will begin to cater to them. In such a fast-paced world, any business that wants the attention of Millennials have their work cut out for them. They not only have to stay up-to-date with technology, they have to be creative. That can be easier said than done in some cases.

The trend of catering to the Millennials need for community has begun to show itself in the workplace and in some cases living spaces. Shared work spaces have been starting to show up. If you’re wondering what that entails, it all in the name. There are quite a few Millennials who have started businesses. With the help of the internet, some of those businesses have become rather successful, and with success comes the need for legitimacy. That means having an office and everything that comes along with it.

The financial strain of starting a business from scratch is massive. A lot has always gone into putting a proper office together, and now there is the added cost of having a high-speed internet connection. Shared work spaces not only cut the cost of having a dedicated office space, but it’s also an environment that can foster creativity and the flow of ideas. Sure it takes a certain level of trust to make this idea work, but Millennials are more than up to the task.

One such New York shared office space, Workville NYC, is taking the concept to the next level. First off, the location is only a short distance from Time Square. Another thing is that they offer different types of office spaces for whatever your business needs are. Their co-working space is filled with comfortable seating and has a relaxed atmosphere. The cost of this varies depending on whether a company wants to pay by the hour, the day, or month-to-month. If this business plan appeals to you, don’t hesitate, take a look and if you like what you see, go for it.

Reviewing how Clients’ Grievances are Solved by White Shark Media

A number of firms tend to ignore customers’ complaints. It is unfortunate that such businesses have no idea about how they can improve by simply addressing these concerns. White Shark Media has been praised for its efforts in ensuring that all complaints raised by its clients are fully addressed.

Throughout the course of the firm’s existence, clients have been raising both positive and negative reviews about the firm. The reviews have helped the firm pinpoint weak areas, and also its strongholds.

Common Complains raised by Clients

Over the past few years, most clients have raised the red flag concerning the issue of losing touch with their AdWords campaigns. The frequency of similar complaints made the firm to realize that the reporting procedures that it has put in place were inadequate and could not fully cater for the diverse needs of clients.

Owners of small businesses were the most affected because it was difficult for them to review the firm’s report about the progress of their businesses. White Shark Media effectively solved the problem by making sure that its clients are well informed about the intricacies of their campaigns.  Learn more: http://www.whitesharkmedia.com/testimonials/ and http://www.whitesharkmedia.com

In the past, there was also an issue of communication not being good enough. This was a major concern since White Shark Media’s operations mainly rely on smooth flow of communication.

This complaint was addressed amicably when the firm came up with the idea of scheduled monthly teleconferences. The firm organizes monthly status calls, which allows every client to review how his or her progress. This innovation has been acclaimed because it is cost-effective and highly pragmatic.

Previously, clients had incessantly complained about the issue of older campaigns being better-performing than newer campaigns. The firm took this issue seriously and came up with a raft of measures to iron out the problem.

Most notably, it made sure that such clients are linked up with experienced supervisors, who provide real-time feedback. Besides this, the supervisors themselves oversee the management of the new campaigns.

Clients who lacked an idea about tracking their AdWords performance were helped through the implementation of an in-house platform. This has made it possible for the firm to track the performance of each client’s campaigns.

This is done with the aim of optimizing each AdWords campaign. Such optimization ultimately leads to better performance. After recognizing that most clients make inquiries through the phone, White Shark media advanced a follow-up tool. This allows further correspondence to establish whether their concerns have been addressed.
