There are now over 13,000 places to work listed on Workfrom. People search for places every day, but what makes a place stand out enough for someone to go and try it?
Below I’ve written out some tips on optimizing your listing so remote workers can really see what you have to offer.
1. Add high quality pictures, and choose your best one to be first 📸
A picture is worth a thousands coffees. That’s how it goes right?
Have an awesome community space? A wall of calming plants? Couches that make you want to stay for hours? Show it off. This is by far the number one thing you can do to bring more people into your space.
*Bonus tip: Photos that show actual humans working in your space, and loving it – are even better 🙂
2. Increase your Workability score
This is the one glance view of how easy it will be for people to get work done at your space.
Technically the Workability score is determined by an algorithm that considers the most cared about aspects of a workspace. The holy trinity includes: quality of wifi, amount of power outlets, and noise levels.
First, make sure all these details are added to your listing. Second, if any of these aren’t up to par you can easily make some quick improvements 🔨 Here are some ideas:
- Have a couple power strips on hand to lend out
- Increase your wifi speeds
- Create a quiet area where people can do calls with less noise
Improving these aspects of your space will make it that much more awesome and enticing for people that that are looking for a place to work for the day.
3. Reply to comments!
