Why Use a Coworking Space? 4 Reasons Why (and 3 Why Not)

Why Use a Coworking Space? 4 Reasons Why (and 3 Why Not)

November 22, 2021

Is using a coworking space worth it? Why use a coworking space, anyway? This article explores a few reasons why it may or may not be right for you. 

Coworking spaces offer small business owners and working professionals a place to complete work in a comfortable, professional setting while also participating in a vibrant community of their peers. 

Is a coworking space right for you? Here are a few reasons why you should consider it, as well as some of the reasons you might need a different solution.

Why Use a Coworking Space? 4 Reasons You Should

1. Affordability 

There’s no way around it—you need a place to work if you want to keep your productivity as high as possible. Some people may be content with prolonged couch sitting or purchasing a coffee for public wifi, but if you need something more professional, a coworking space might be the right choice for you. 

Why use a coworking space? Sometimes professionals need an address for their business or a physical office (with their name on it) for insurance and legal purposes. Compared to renting office space or renovating a home office, coworking space is extremely affordable. In the analyses CoSuite has completed with help from our marketing and real estate contacts, we’ve concluded that buying Starbucks every day just to access their wifi and have a place to work is more expensive than a coworking membership. Our pricing is all-inclusive and straightforward, and our customer service is exceptional.

2. Flexibility 

Maybe you need a dedicated desk you can claim as your own; maybe you’re not that picky, but you need a space away from home that allows you to focus. Whatever your needs are, a coworking space is more than likely able to accommodate you.

3. Networking 

There’s no telling who might be working next to or what ideas may connect when coworking. In a coworking space, many professionals from different fields come together to get things done. Working in such an environment could lead to a new professional connection or referral partnership.

4. Credibility 

Leverage coworking to build credibility for your business. You could benefit from a professional setting where you can meet with clients. From a client’s perspective, which business would you rather work with: a company run from someone’s kitchen or a company with clean, professional spaces to meet and discuss your needs? The image you present to your clients matters.

Credibility is important when you are building a business. For many business owners, that means renting office space. Not quite there yet? Why use a coworking space for your business? Get in touch with us today to learn how we can help you get things done. 

3 Reasons You Should Consider Other Options

1. Distractions 

Some people thrive in a bustling work environment. They feed off the energy of others and enjoy the conversations they have while grabbing coffee from the shared work kitchen. In a coworking community, distractions can happen. If you need a space that is free from distractions, you may benefit from a more private arrangement. CoSuite Executive Members have access to all the amenities from our coworking community and are provided a password-protected, secluded office with a professional mailing address.

2. Privacy 

If your work requires you to be on back-to-back calls, you may need a bit more privacy than a coworking space can offer. Fortunately, many coworking spaces have different packages and amenities that allow you to use a private space if you need to take a call or have an in-person meeting. CoSuite memberships include access to our private phone booths and meditation rooms. Looking for something more exclusive? Perhaps an Executive Suite is in order!

3. Budget 

If you are just starting out, you may be better off using a home office or a public working space, like a library or a coffee shop. However, cafés don’t offer the conferencing capabilities and secure networks that CoSuite provides.

By foregoing a professional setting to get your work done, you may be able to save up until you have enough room in your budget to afford a space that increases your productivity and bolsters your credibility.
