Skype for Business
One thing which small businesses may suffer with is finding staff and having a place for them all to work. When you've only got a very small budget, paying the salary of any employees and office space could be significantly draining. To avoid having to spend a lot of money on a place to work, something which you might like to consider is using Skype as the main means to communicte with your employees.
The internet age is wonderful because not only does it provide an avenue for people to start online shops through simple and amazing services like our own, but it also makes communication an awful lot easier too! Skype not only saves you having to find office space, but it can also be very beneficial in that it can allow you to find workers from anywhere in the country (or, indeed the world.) Skype allows you to do conference calls where multiple users can talk into microphones and discuss things together, making it easier to have meetings and discuss strategies with your employees. You can set milestones for your workers and discuss with them to make sure that they are fair and even make sure they're working the hours by having you all on Skype for the day's working hours. Of course, meeting in person still has quite a list of benefits and, in time, you could open up an actual office, but this seems like something that will be easier to do at first - you could always arrange a monthly meet up or something too.
So I hope that gives you a good idea of something you can do to avoid having to pay for office space. Some people are quite attracted to the idea of working from home and so it's possible that this aspect will increase the chances of people buying something from you. Skype makes all this possible and as it is entirely free, it can be a great asset to many small businesses.
