Our Toowoomba virtual office can make you more productive

Toowoomba virtual office

Working alone can be equal parts isolating and liberating. You’re your own boss, but you’re also responsible for everything – bills, finding training space, catering, taking calls from new and existing clients, cleaning, signing for packages, and organising maintenance. Our Toowoomba virtual office can help you manage some of that stress so you can focus on the bits of your business you love.

At Strobe Studios, our members can choose what level of service you need. Don’t want to use your home address for work mail? Let us handle it. Trying to find a quiet space for a teleconference or meeting? We’ve got it covered. Our Toowoomba virtual office has professional meeting rooms, training space, free tea and coffee, a variety of working spaces, and a built-in network of other creatives and professional services.

With all that free time, you can focus on being more productive. Try these tips:

Block time

Unless you’re extremely lucky, chances are you’re going to be juggling deadlines and tasks each week. Rather than trying to do it all at once, block out chunks of time in your schedule (day or week) to do specific things. For example, you might set aside half an hour each morning to do some admin and answer urgent emails. After that, you could block out a couple of hours to work on a client proposal or presentation, followed by some time to pay bills and send invoices, update your professional social media, and then finish out the day focusing on a different project.

Email/phone-free periods

How often do you find yourself getting pulled off a task by a phone call or email from someone asking you for an update? Rarely are you able to deal with it quickly and return to your task without delay. Quarantine time each day where you won’t look at email or touch the phone or schedule specific times of day when you will. Put it in your email footer so clients know when you’re available to give them your full attention.

Be a taskmaster

Be vigilant about time wasting activities and letting tasks bleed into the next time block in your schedule. It’ll help you focus and stick to your schedule. Before you know if you’ll have improved your time management and your ability to estimate how long various tasks take – super handy for quoting on jobs.

Don’t forget, a benefit of Strobe Studio’s Toowoomba virtual office membership is our professional meeting and training facilities, so you don’t need to ring around. Let us help you be more productive and focus on what you really need to do.
