5 Things to Know Before Becoming a Coworking Host

Coworking is not just for startups and freelancers. It’s ideal for anyone with extra unused workspace. If you don’t have a fully operational office lying idle, you may still put up extra desks or sections for coworking.

The first thing you need is a verified account on a reliable coworking website. You will be allowed to register multiple workspaces through that account. Your team members may assist you in managing that account as well.

1. Requirements

When you click to register your coworking space, a form will appear. Fill out each section carefully before proceeding to the next. Incomplete forms are not entertained and missing information often leads to rejection.

  • Information such as name, full address, contact details, utilities, area’s measurements, and number of seats, price demands and additional facilities is important.
  • Furnished space is needed so it should be like a regular office. Be careful about appearing too utilitarian because it’s not a correctional facility rather a positive office environment that users seek.
  • Maintenance is the responsibility of the host just like when you have guests at home or a hotel. Be mindful of any necessary repairs and utility issues.
  • Photographs are compulsory and go a long way to attract users towards your venue. Make sure to add high quality photos that show a realistic view of what you offer.
  • Fast internet cannot be compromised on particularly if the user has an internet-based business. Many digital startups have foreign clients and deadlines to meet so optimize your internet speed.

2. Manage venues

As mentioned before, your cowork website account has a complete setup for hosting users. Edit and update your listing at any time. You will receive all the updates about inquiries made about your venue. You will be able to communicate effectively with interested parties. Add your team members for help in management of coworking spaces from your profile. In case any of them have left the company, you may remove them from the venue management list easily. The profile owner may decide which team member gets to access exactly what feature.

3. Property types

Some hosts only have a couple of desks up for coworking while others provide entire buildings. Your listing is categorized by the administration for the ease of the users. This is helpful for people using search filters to find the perfect coworking office. The most expensive listings are similar to luxury hotels so they are suitable for renowned brands. Freelancers are probably looking for a quiet desk to work without distractions. Startups and entrepreneurs often have small teams they wish to accommodate in a reasonably priced office.

4. Featured hosting

Any blog or website has a section featuring sponsored posts or those that got the most love. Coworking websites have the option of featured listings that provide high quality shared offices at the best rates. You may contact customer care directly to have your listing featured there for a limited time. They often have a fixed rate for promoting your listing temporarily. This allows your venue to receive more views due to higher visibility. It increases the chances of bookings.

5. Privacy policy

Before you sign any agreements, read the fine print. Every coworking website has its own terms and conditions. Clarify every section prior to creating your profile as a host. While most have secure servers for storing your personal data, they cannot guarantee 100% safety so take precautions like a VPN.  Particularly, study their rules about third parties because they generally don’t have major control over such activities. In case of any confusion, contact them directly.
