Location matters. Ask any real estate agent what matters most about a property, and you will hear the oft-repeated phrase, "location, location, location."
The same holds true with your office space. Where you choose to do business matters more than what it looks like, how big it is, or how many people you have working there. It’s not a decision to take lightly, as your office’s location can affect everything from the clientele you attract to how people perceive your company.
Your business location positions you to attract two types of people: customers and talent. Though each group has its own priorities and requirements when vetting potential businesses, both will agree that a good location presents a better image than a business that’s hard to access or looks outwardly unprofessional.
In essence, choosing the right location for a business is based on strategy. Ultimately, where you choose to house your business will allow you to remain competitive in the market. For example, you might notice that many law offices or tax professionals are in close proximity to each other in your town. This is often done by design because a certain area of town may be better suited to attract the type of clientele that need those services. In some cases, a certain district may become known as the go-to place for certain services (like Wall Street in New York City, for example).
Whether you realize it or not, your location is sending a message to your audience, and you can take full control over that message to ensure it reflects the image and objectives you want to achieve.
As you’re exploring office solutions, it can be difficult to recognize what makes a good location in the first place. While you may think you’ve found a great place in a high traffic area, other factors may determine that your location isn’t as good as it appears on the surface.
