Internet Upgrade in Tysons, Reston, and Arlington Intelligent Offices

Intelligent office members in the Tysons, Reston, and Arlington areas are in for an extreme Internet upgrade. 100mbps dedicated symmetrical fiber Internet is now available! With the upgrade, Internet speed, efficiency, reliability, and overall capabilities will improve drastically.

Gone are the days of slow and unreliable Internet connection. Intelligent Office’s upgraded Internet will increase productivity and pace, along with general workplace morale.

What is 100mbps dedicated symmetrical fiber Internet?

At 100mbps high-speed data transfer, the upgraded Internet is designed to support larger numbers of simultaneous users where access to the Internet is mission critical. Unlike broadband, which is shared bandwidth; a dedicated fiber circuit comes from the ISP backbone directly into Intelligent Office locations. Since the bandwidth is no longer being shared with other users, reliability is enhanced and speeds are much more consistent.Symmetrical Internet refers to identical connection and speed for downloading and uploading information (100/100mbps). This ensures better video quality, smoother Skype sessions, and faster file uploading, among other things. Cooper transport is the most common way to deliver Internet. Telephone lines or cable connections are less reliable and not as scalable as fiber based Internet. While fiber may be more expensive, its advantages for businesses and first-class service make it the medium of choice for Intelligent Office. 100mbps dedicated symmetrical fiber Internet will be an extremely beneficial upgrade for Intelligent Office workers.

To learn more about the new Internet upgrade or to rent office space in our Tysons, Reston, or Arlington locations, call Intelligent Office today.

4 Effective Ways to Manage a Remote Team

The virtual workplace is now more the norm than the exception. Technology such as Skype and GoToMeeting and free conference calls allows employers to provide workers with a flexible schedule where they don't all have to be under the same roof.

For the employee, the virtual work life creates room for a better work-life balance. For the employer, it broadens the pool of qualified employees since location is no longer a hindrance or a cost factor when hiring for a position. If that person is the right person for the job, then working remotely could be the perfect fit.

The Rise of the Virtual Office

The idea that the office is a specific place where our professional lives happen is becoming less universal, and less important. These days many knowledge workers can be productive anywhere, thanks to smarter, more numerous mobile devices, faster network access, and a growing number of online collaboration tools. Telecommuting is no longer merely something that the phone company is trying to sell you. And wherever the office may be, wider and better use of social networks, data analytics, and smart technologies such as voice recognition could be poised to increase productivity dramatically—meaning that both real and virtual offices may have fewer people in them.

5 Signs Your Startup Needs a Virtual Office

1. You need to improve your professional image

You’re on a shoestring budget, you haven’t got an established client list yet, and you’re operating out of your spare bedroom. But a few small details can actually help you to project a professional image – and getting the right business address is one of them.

Renting a virtual office means you won’t need to have your business correspondence sent to 53 Suburbia Avenue. And you can keep it a secret that you’re working in your PJs from the comfort of your spare room.

Why You Should Use a Virtual Office

Four reasons why you don't need to spend on setting up a traditional office to recruit staff.

If you're taking on more work than you can handle as a sole trader, one of the biggest costs involved in starting up a business is that of setting up an office.

But now you don't need to. With rental fees for office space as well as the equipment for employees – not to mention the expense of paying the bills – it might make sense to implement a virtual office.

Low-Cost Marketing Tactics for a Down Economy

In these difficult times, as the customer pool shrinks and budgets tighten, companies must fine-tune their marketing efforts. Here are tips on refining your marketing approach to maximize effectiveness and minimize costs.



Eliminate marginal investments
Interview your salespeople to identify which marketing tools have been most instrumental in successfully selling your products or services. Determine which marketing program has the biggest role in snaring recent sales and allocate your marketing budget toward those programs. Then take these steps:



Eliminate marketing communications projects you might never get around to anyway. These wish list?projects can be added back to the marketing to-do list when the economy turns around and you have the money and resources needed to do them right.



Eliminate marketing designed only to enhance your brand. These marketing programs won't have much affect on your short-term sales results. Instead, focus on generating leads and sales from a well-targeted group of prospects and let the quality of your marketing communications, response materials and website take care of enhancing your company's image.



Eliminate marketing programs that have not shown a significant positive ROI, as measured by leads or sales. Determine which programs will have the biggest impact on generating qualified, sales-ready leads and short-term sales. Make sure these stay at the top of the list for funding and implementation.



Increase direct marketing.



Increase your use of e-mail and postal mail to deliver targeted offers to your most desirable prospects. Postal mail may get through when your e-mail gets blocked as spam. To cut costs, use laser-printed business letters rather than expensive full-color mailers. Rather than doing one-time postal mailings to rented lists, improve your results by sending repeat mailings targeted at known prospects (such as your own prospect database).



Save money by sending expensive literature or materials only to those who request them not to every prospect in your database. If you don't have your own e-mail lists to market to, consider having publishers send your e-mail to their lists for you, or placing ads in targeted e-newsletters or e-zines. These are economical ways to get past e-mail filters, reach your prospects directly and generate a quick response.



Negotiate discounts on trade publication advertising. In these difficult times, you will likely be better off with a high-frequency or high-impact presence in one or two key publications than with an occasional presence in several. Study circulation information to clearly understand what percentage of the magazines readership is really part of your target market. Ask your media rep to give you statistics on what percentage of their subscribers also read competitive magazines, and consider this information when calculating your true cost per thousand.



Be sure your print ads are benefit- or solution-focused (rather than emphasizing features) with strong calls-to-action designed to generate leads or drive sales.



Read more in 16 proven techniques for better B2B sales leads generation with print advertising.
When the economy is soft, trade publication advertising sales are often weak. This allows you to negotiate an attractive rate with publishers.



Use trade shows smartly trade shows can be expensive, so consider eliminating those that haven?t previously shown a favorable ROI. Instead, concentrate your investments in those shows and conferences which have proven effective in generating leads and driving sales.



Then look for ways to reduce your trade show costs and boost your ROI. For example, consider hosting a smaller exhibit. Ask your dealers, distributors or resellers to help you staff the booth. Eliminate expensive cocktail parties. Send pre-show mailings to increase the number of visitors to your booth and lower your overall cost per lead. Send post-show mailings and use telemarketing follow-up to convert casual inquiries into qualified leads.



Enhance your website. A few cost-effective changes can turn your website into a sales lead generation machine. Select and use keywords carefully so your site appears in the search results for your intended audience. Post keyword-rich articles and case studies on your site. To turn visitors into leads, place offers or calls-to-action on every page of your website. Back up your claims with proof, including certifications, awards and customer testimonials.



Move to virtual seminars and workshops
You can cut some of the cost of your seminars and workshops by hosting them online. Webinars, online product demonstrations and other virtual meetings eliminate travel expenses of presenters and staff. And virtual events sometimes enjoy better attendance than live events because attendees don?t need to leave their offices. You still need to spend some of your marketing funds promoting your virtual events, but you can save a bundle on travel, meeting rooms and refreshments.



Put marketing collateral online. My research shows that three in ten requesters still want printed materials to share with their bosses, colleagues or clients. This ratio also means seven in ten will be happy and instantly gratified to be directed to your website or sent PDF files.



You can also save on printed literature production costs by avoiding expensive metallic inks, or by taking advantage of excess paper supplies your printer is willing to discount. Die cuts can be costly, but not if you use a die the printer already has created. You can also make items in smaller sizes or print two-sided materials to reduce printing and shipping costs.



Publish articles on your subject of expertise.
Take advantage of inexpensive opportunities such as writing or contributing articles to industry publications, business magazines, blogs, websites and even Vistage View. Articles showcase your expertise to a highly targeted audience of your prospective clients. They can learn more about your company if you put a short biography at the end of the article and a link to a free whitepaper or how-to guide.



Use your article to gain media attention by shortening it and distributing it as a press release with a newswire service. Make sure your release links back to the full version of the article posted on your site. Additionally, you can post comments on relevant online news stories or industry blogs, and in your comment include a link to your article.



You may also consider writing a more in-depth version of the article, a white paper or special report, and offering it to website visitors.



Use newsletters. Newsletters are another great way to provide customer value and keep your company?s name top-of-mind without spending a fortune.



Consider using your newsletter to help you identify and qualify prospects. That is, make newsletter subscription involve filling out a brief survey which asks questions about people?s level of interest in your products, buying authority and purchasing horizon. This information can go into your database for immediate or future follow-up, as appropriate, by marketing or sales. Be sure to also publish your newsletter on your website.



Provide speakers to meetings and conferences
Another economical marketing tactic is to promote your company?s executives as potential speakers at key meetings and conferences. Speaking at prominent events positions those executives as experts. You can also use these events to generate leads by offering audience members a copy of the presentation, a free white paper or some other valuable information if they give you a business card.



Find a marketing partner. Stretch your marketing dollars by teaming up with a company whose products or services complement yours. By pooling your resources, you and your partner can get far more mileage from your respective investments than either of you could alone.



For example, consider jointly sponsoring a mailing to promote products and services of both partners to their mutual universe of prospects. Not only do you split the costs, but you also gain access to additional prospects.



Create a referral program. Leverage the power of your existing customers by creating a referral program that rewards customers for sending prospects to your company. Getting referrals from happy long-term customers may be as easy as simply asking for it. Additional incentives, although worth considering, may not be required.



These ideas may trigger additional ways to cut the fat in your marketing programs and better focus your marketing efforts on driving short-term leads and sales during these difficult economic times. Doing so will help enhance marketing?s reputation with senior management as a valuable contributor to the corporate mission.
