As you probably know, Google changes its algorithms all the time, and Google Business Profile (formerly known as Google My Business) in flexible workspaces is currently in the crosshairs.
Google wants to know that you are actually working out of a space, that you have office hours, and that you can really be found there! They have indicated that you should have a suite number, a sign showing your business, and are open at that location for some period of time each week.
To that end, Satellite Workplaces has created a Business Presence – GBP plan. We can’t, of course, guarantee that you will get a GBP listing, but we can certainly increase your odds!
The Business Presence – GBP plan includes:
Everything included in the Business Presence Plan (mailbox, fob for 24/7 access to the center, member pricing, Meet Our Members presence on the website)
Directory Board – your company name on the directory board by the front door
Unique Suite Number – if the center is, say Suite #200, your suite number is #200-xxx (with xxx representing your mailbox number).
4 half-days of open coworking per month
We can also include staffed hours for you. Contact us to sign up now or quote what you need!
As a service to our members and the wider community, CEO Barbara Sprenger hosted a discussion to share what she has learned in applying for disaster relief funding for her businesses. For those of you who were unable to be on the call, the following information was provided. Please share with your coworkers, friends and family. Also, please comment here with any additional information you discover. Both the questions and answers seem to change by the hour, so we hope to be a useful resource to our members and your networks as well. Hang in there. Be well.
The year has officially made its way back to having darker and colder days. We’d like to take a moment to share some helpful tips on how to stay safe and protected, while at the same time maintain effective and productive in all your work tasks at the Satellite!
Here at the Satellite, we take your well being and security very seriously. Cameras are placed to view the front and back doors and the open cubicle area. Even though you have 24/7 access, only members or their guests for meetings can enter the Satellite during non-staffed hours.
If you’re working outside regular business hours and you see/hear people knocking to get your attention to open doors, please do not engage.
All who’ve been granted access to the building during unstaffed hours have a 24/7 access key.
Do not leave unattended keys or correspondence out in the open. Also, please do not accept correspondence from mail delivery personnel or people stopping by from the neighborhood.
If you forget your key card or need immediate staff support with non-emergency matters, please call our after hour support line, and someone will return your call as soon as possible.
Please do not disturb people at work – they might be working on a deadline.
