How to Learn Digital Marketing The Right Way?

learn Digital Marketing

Digital Marketing is the rage today!


In fact, it has become one of the hottest topics of discussion on a platform like Linkedin.

Especially for the job-seekers, it has become the most sought after career choice today.

The decision seems to be right in my opinion but there is one question which remains unanswered to most of them - 

How to learn Digital Marketing the right way?

What are the top resources to learn Digital Marketing?

How to master Digital Marketing?

What are the career options in Digital Marketing?


Well, today, I am here to answer all these queries and to be very honest, it is all based on my own personal experience. Yes, I have been a digital marketer myself in the past and whatever I am going to share today should definitely help the aspirants.

So, let's begin!


The very first thing you must know is to start step by step. 


Digital Marketing is a very vast field. Some people think that learning can be finished in a day or two. Surely yes, if we are just talking about the basic understanding. But it doesn't stop there. You really need to devote ample time on the same to master the essentials which go beyond the basics.


When I started my career in 2008, the term "Digital Marketing" was unknown to me and I guess to most others. Before the term Digital Marketing, terms like Online Marketing, Web Marketing were more often used and a person was primarily hired for a specific role, not multiple roles in Online Marketing.


Either for the SEO or PPC or Email Marketing.


But as time progressed, there was a surge in demand for those who could handle or manage all aspects of Online Marketing and this is when the term "Digital Marketing" originated. 


A digital marketer thus is required to possess all necessary marketing skills not just limited to SEO, PPC or Email Marketing. Digital Marketing is actually the sum total of all online marketing tactics such as social media marketing, search marketing, and email marketing used for promoting and selling products and services.

So, one thing should be very clear to you. To be a digital marketer, you should work and develop all-around skills including SEO, SMM, PPC, Email Marketing and all other relevant online marketing skills.

Obviously, you cannot mug up these skills in a day or two. You have to first start with one thing and then gradually move towards gaining additional skills. 

And believe me, it is all very easy to learn!

Should I pay to learn Digital Marketing?


Absolutely not!

Why should you pay when you have tonnes free resources available online in Digital Marketing.

You can just pick one good resource and get started with it. Of course, you may have doubt or questions regarding the authenticity of the available material. In such cases, it is better to research the same. Check out for online reviews, public forums, social sites to know more!

I remember I first started learning about SEO in 2008 from this site - webconfs

The site is still active and continues to be one of the top resources for SEO learning at least for those who are just entering into the world of SEO. And best of all, it is completely FREE !!

For more advanced learning, you can check out the free resources available on sites like HubSpot academy, Moz, Search engine journal, Semrush, etc...

Paid resources can also be tried out if it is affordable to you. Some of the top paid resources include sites like Udemy.com, Lynda.com, etc...

I have tried out Udemy.com and I was not disappointed. The site offers tonnes of resources for digital marketers coming from professional experts. You can complete your learning at your convenience and also get rewarded with a certificate in the end. How good!!

Learn Digital Marketing DIY way


Learning by doing is my recommended method in Digital Marketing.

Mastering theory is good as long as you want to clear your exam. But for a thorough grasp and understanding of the subject, you have to think beyond mugging up the theory. 

DIY (Do it yourself) is the way to go!

Let's understand it from one example.

You want to learn about wordpress. You have found one good resource for the same online. You have learned all the basics and advanced concepts. You think it is enough but in reality, it may never be enough when you start working on live projects. 

You should have a practical understanding of how is wordpress installed, how optimal settings are done, how are themes and plugins installed, how to perform wordpress SEO, etc.. 

Until and unless you DIY, your learning can never be complete.

The best way to DIY is to create a local learning environment.

You can create online user accounts to implement and test your SEO skills. For example, you can create blogs on sites like Blogger and Wordpress and use it to gain practical understanding of SEO.

Similary, you can create facebook pages, google ads account, mailchimp account and learn practicaly about facebook marketing, PPC and email marketing respectively.

It was the same case with me. I started learning by doing and it really paid off well in the end!

Making your career in Digital Marketing


No doubt, Digital Marketing offers a great career opportunity today!

Some of the career options which I often see available today are:
  • Digital Marketing Executive
  • Digital Marketing Manager
  • SEO Manager
  • PPC Expert
  • Social Media Manager
  • Content Writer
And believe me, payscale is really good for the above roles especially if you are employed with the bluechip companies.

You can also work as a freelancer or remotely and make a good earning.

You can get more insights here - Digital Marketing career

Final words...

So as to sum up, there is no secret formula or shortcut to master Digital Marketing. You need to learn step by step and keep moving towards your goal. You need to build and grow your network with the people in the same domain for added benefits. You need to be updated with the latest trends in Digital Marketing and keep your learning focused on the same. Do remember the DIY method. 

If required, find and fix a tutor to teach you the concepts in Digital Marketing. That way you should be able to get all your doubts cleared and queries solved which can definitely boost your confidence and lead you to the success in the long run.

Now, if you still require any guidance or further help with your learning, please feel free to contact me. I will do my best to sort out all your doubts or queries.

Happy Learning!!

A 10,000 mAh Magsafe Battery Pack is Finally Here

In case you didn't already know, the release of the iPhone 12 series brought in the Magsafe wireless charging option, which isn't going away anytime soon. Though wired charging is still faster than wireless charging, nothing beats the convenience of being able to connect and disconnect your phone with one hand.

10,000 mAh Magsafe Battery Pack

10,000 mAh vs 5,000 mAh battery packs

A 10,000 mAh portable charger should be able to charge most phones from 0% to 100% at least twice, as opposed to 5,000 mAh power banks that charge most phones only once. Some 5,000 mAh power banks can't even give your phone fully once. This is because the maximum mAh a power bank holds is not equal to the maximum mAh it can deliver. Usually, around 25% of power is lost during delivery. So a 5000 mAh power bank would output only 3,750 mAh, while a 10,000 mAh power bank would output 7,500 mAh. Taking this into consideration, it is obvious why a 10,000 mAh power bank is preferable.

LuxandLuxy PRO 10,000 mAhMagsafe Battery Pack


luxandluxy pro 10000 mAH battery pack

Introducing the PRO battery pack. This grey lightweight power bank is packed with enough juice to power up your phone. Depending on the phone, it could charge from zero to full, twice or thrice. The wireless charging works with all Qi-enabled devices, while the magnetism only sticks to the iPhone 12 series and Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra because these phones have internal magnets in them. For this battery pack to stick to other phones, it would need to come with an external magnetic plate which you will stick to the back of your phone.

This power bank can charge wirelessly at 15W fast charging, while also able to deliver wired charging through its USB Type-C port at 20W fast charging. This makes it possible to charge up to two devices at once.

wireless power bank

Though thicker than an iPhone 12, the PRO battery pack is slimmer than your finger. This slick design makes it perfectly easy to slide it into your pocket after charging, while on the go. The PRO battery pack is lighter than an iPhone 12. To put this into perspective, the iPhone 12 weighs 5.78 oz, and the iPhone 12 Pro Max weights 7.97 oz, while the PRO battery pack weighs only 5.6 oz.

GET YOUR PRO BATTERY PACK HERE

How many times will PRO Battery Pack charge your phone?

These are the number of times the PRO battery pack can charge some famous wireless charging phones.

iPhone 12 series:

iPhone 12 mini (3.4 times), iPhone 12 (2.7 times), iPhone 12 Pro (2.7 times), and iPhone 12 Pro Max (2 times).

iPhone 8, X, and 11:

iPhone 8 (4.1 times), iPhone 8 Plus (2.8 times) iPhone X (2.9 times), iPhone XR (2.5 times), iPhone XS (2.4 times), iPhone XS Max (2.1 times), iPhone 11 (2.4 times), iPhone 11 Pro (2.5 times), and iPhone 11 Pro Max (1.8 times).

Samsung Galaxy:

Samsung Galaxy S9 (2.5 times), Samsung Galaxy Note 9 (1.9 times), Samsung Galaxy S9+ (2.1 times), Samsung Galaxy S10 (2.2 times), Samsung Galaxy S10+ (1.8 times), Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ (1.7 times), Samsung Galaxy S20 (1.7 times), Samsung Galaxy Note 20 (1.7 times), Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra (1.6 times), Samsung Galaxy S21 (1.9 times), Samsung Galaxy S21+ (1.6 times), Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra (1.5 times), Samsung Galaxy Fold (1.7 times), Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 (1.7 times) and Samsung Galaxy Z Flip (2.3 times).

LG:

LG G3 (2.5 times), LG G6 (2.3 times), LG G7 ThinQ (2.5 times), LG G8 ThinQ (2.1 times), LG G8X ThinQ (1.9 times), LG G8S ThinQ (2.1 times), LG V30 (2.3 times), LG V30 Plus (2.3 times), LG V40 ThinQ (2.3 times), LG V50 ThinQ (1.9 times), LG V60 ThinQ (1.5 times).

Google:

Google Pixel 3 XL (2 times), Google Pixel 4 XL (2 times), Google Pixel 5 (1.8 times), Google Pixel 6 Pro (1.5 times), Google Nexus 4 (3.5 times), Google Nexus 5 (3.3 times), and Google Nexus 6 (2.3 times).

Motorola:

Motorola Droid Maxx (2.1 times), Motorola Droid Mini (3.8 times), Motorola Droid Turbo (1.9 times), Motorola Droid Turbo 2 (2 times), Motorola Moto Maxx (2 times), Motorola Moto X Force, and Motorola Edge+ (1.5 times)

Why you need a wireless power bank?

After seeing the phones listed above, it's quite clear that wireless charging is the future. We should expect the next iPad series will contain Magsafe wireless charging. Because tablets usually have higher battery capacity than phones, it would be obvious to go for a 10,000 mAh power bank. Apple is also planning the release of portless iPhones. This wouldn't be surprising because they did a similar move when they first removed the headphone jack. Being the trendsetters of the phone industry, we can expect that once Apple removes the port from the iPhone, Samsung will follow after along with other big brand phone companies.

Get More Feed Subscribers & Readers For Your Blog at Follow.it

Recently I had switched from feedburner.com to follow.it.

Feedburner as you all must be knowing is a web based feed management service that provides custom RSS feeds and management tools for bloggers, podcasters and other web-based content.
The service can be checked out here - feedburner.com

Feedburner.com was quite popular among bloggers who had found it immensely useful in gaining subscribers and thus readers for their blog.

The thing which had impressed me the most about feedburner was the ability to export all your email feed subscribers to a file which then could be used for email marketing initiatives. You could use your feed subscribers list for guest post pitching, product/service information...and for any other purpose you may like as long as the content resonates with your readers.

Now in April 2021, Google had announced that they would migrate feedburner to new infrastructure but remove "non-core" functionality including email subscriptions, browser-friendly viewing, and password-protection.

So, it actually meant that feedburner will no longer be the same. The essential features are being clipped off which could definitely be a matter of concern for the users of the same. 

I was no exception and so I had to look for the alternative. 

This is where I came to know about Follow.it.

Follow.it is another feature rich feed management system like feedburner. Infact it offers more than what you get from feedburner.

Below are the salient features of follow.it:

  • Increase traffic on your blog
  • Easily get new subscribers for your blog

10 Tips to Generate Leads For Your Online Business

Leads are the building block for any business. It is near impossible for any business to grow if it doesn't get enough leads. To ensure regular supply of leads, businesses need to have a robust lead generation system. Though such system may not be feasible for all online businesses, still there are several easy ways to accomplish lead generation goals which can be high value and low investment.

lead generation tips


Here in this write-up today I am going to discuss all such lead generation tips and techniques. Most of these tips are pretty easy to follow for any online business. These tips are based on my previous experiences where I had worked on lead generation role for few online businesses in education and finance sector. Apart from my personal experiences, I have also listed some of the tips after carefully researching for the same online from reputed sources.


I am sure you will find it useful.


So, here you go!


Add CTA in Email Signature


Well, it cannot get simpler than this. All you need to do is to add a Call to Action in your email signature. This Call to Action can be a link to your business landing page or any other page of interest. People can simply click on the link and visit your page without being forced to do so. A really good idea!


Integrate Live Chat Bots


Live chat integration has always been my favorite method of lead generation. It really works wonderfully well in most cases. Now with AI all around us, live chats are getting free from human intervention and thus getting more intelligent and efficient in customer service. A definitely good way to generate lead for your business. 


Here's one example of  live chat bot


Add Hello Bar


Hello Bar is another outstanding tool that can boost lead generation goals for any online business. The tool lets you create beautifully designed customized popups for your site. Its super easy to use and comes with advanced targeting option to let you generate quality leads. 


Check it out here - hellobar


Exit-intent Pop-ups


This technique though known to most of us is still underused. The exit intent technique is a clever little technique to add visitors to your funnel and thus generate leads for your business. Instead of frustrating users with ill timed pop-ups, the idea is to showcase pop-up at the last moment i.e; when a user is about to exit/leave the web page. Using such exit-intent pop-ups, businesses can definitely see a rise in leads.


You can create exit-intent pop-ups using pop-up creating services like poptin, etc..


Linkedin


We all know that LinkedIn is a powerful professional social networking platform. It is a place where all businesses want to be as it lets them perform various activities related to business requirements including branding, hiring,  etc... With so many businesses out there, it becomes an ideal place for lead generation. 


There are various ways to accomplish the same. Some of the ways are:

  • Status updates
  • Article posting
  • Joining groups
  • Adding connections
In article posting, you can simply re-purpose your blogs and publish the same.

Quora

Quora requires no introduction. It is perhaps the biggest repository of questions and answers discussion on the internet. Though not exactly a social network but it is place buzzing with conversations. As someone running an online business, can definitely initiate a conversation by posting relevant questions to the audience and can also contribute by posting relevant answers to the questions asked by others.

And now with features like Spaces, it has become much more effective and powerful place for branding and lead generation.

You should definitely check it out!!

Pre-Launch Offers and Discounts

As a business, you must be readying with product/service launch. You want it to be as successful as possible with the launch being appreciated by your audience and in turn churning out necessary leads. To make it more effective in terms of lead generation, it is recommended that pre-launch offers and discounts are provided so as to increase the engagement and add more and more people to your sales funnel. 

It is a known fact that discounts and offers work wonders in terms of building customers for your business. 

Definitely not to be ignored by any means!

Blogging

Can anything be as effective as blogging? 

Of course not!

Personally I am yet to find anything better than the same. The best thing about blogging is that there is always a scope for something fresh as opposed to stale information. As someone running an online business should definitely take advantage of blogging for branding and lead generation. 

This can be accomplished by publishing quality content and following it up with a prominent CTA. The quality content should fit well in terms of SEO so as to gain maximum traction from the web for your business keywords.

Blogging thus is a super powerful technique for lead generation if done well..!

Video Marketing

Video publishing has become a rage these days. Platforms like Facebook and Youtube are buzzing with the same. And so, its high time for businesses to pay attention on the same and churn out videos on a consistent basis to support their business goals. 

Youtube especially can be highly effective for marketing initiatives as per my personal experience. All you need to know is to create effective videos and optimizing it for the organic search. Lots of resources are available for the same on the web. Just google search.

Apart from Youtube, platforms like Vimeo, Dailymotion can also serve your purpose. You should check it out.

Alos, you should try to produce more and more live videos to increase engagement and thus boost your lead generation efforts.

Free Consultation

People love anything offered for FREE!!

And this is where you should hit hard at-least in the initial phase of your customer journey. One best way to accomplish the same is to offer free consultation. Prior to free consultation, businesses can get all essential details submitted including email, phone, etc.. which can definitely be categorized under Leads. 

The leads can later be nurtured into your sales cycle before they are finally converted into paid customers. 

Free Consultation can be offered via your website, mobile app, etc.. 

All you need is to add a free consultation CTA linked to a signup form where all required details will be submitted by the user before free consultation.

New Corrupt PDF Recovery Tool Repairs PDFs by Data Restructuring

A new freeware tool that repairs corrupt PDF files by restructuring the damaged PDF data.

Today PDFFixer.com released their new freeware tool PDF Fixer, which repairs corrupt and unreadable PDF documents by restructuring the damaged PDF data, rebuilding XREF tables and then recovers those PDF documents back.

PDF is a very common document format on the web of people's daily work. It is a binary coded format generated by virtual printing of various files. Since most of PDF data is compressed, editing PDF files with a text editor will cause data error, or lose part of the data due to network instability during network transfer, which will cause PDF files to be damaged and corrupt. PDF readers and viewers cannot open or repair those corrupt PDF files and would prompt a few error alerts.

corrupt pdf fix recovery tool

PDF Fixer is a free PDF repair utility which repairs the XREF table by reconstructing the damaged PDF data, and then restore these damaged PDF documents into readable PDF files.

Some open source command-line tools such as PDFTK and Ghostscript both have PDF repair functions, but PDFTK can only repair PDF information problems, while Ghostscript can only regenerate XREF tables. Once users need to repair a really damaged PDF file, they will find that neither PDFTK nor Ghostscript can recover the file data, and they will keep prompting reading errors. Unlike these two tools, PDF Fixer analyzes the data that still exists in the entire damaged PDF file, then assembles all the object data and repairs it. PDF Fixer can repair many PDF files that cannot be repaired by PDFTK and Ghostscript.

Features of PDF Fixer

  • Fix unreadable and corrupt PDFs
  • Fix PDF XREF tables
  • Export recovered data to PDF files
  • Auto preview the fixed PDF content
  • Automatically detecting bad PDF documents
  • Batch repair multiple damaged PDF files at once
  • No required Adobe Acrobat installed
  • Portable version available

Availability

Homepage: https://pdffixer.com

File Size: 16 MB

Portable ZIP Version: 19 MB

OS: Windows XP / Vista / Windows 7 / Windows 8 / Windows 10 (32/64 bit) and Servers

What Are The Benefits of VoIP Phones

In every business, you must have strong communication lines to help you speak with your co-workers and your customers. When you're able to hear things clearly, it makes it much easier to get your daily tasks completed. 

Here are some benefits of VoIP phones.

voip phone benefits

Low-Cost

One of the first attractive features of a VoIP telephone is that you'll save money. Instead of hiring a tech team and getting multiple lines, you can integrate everything into one convenient system. Here are some of the benefits:

Cheaper to make and receive calls with the number of employees you have in your business

Bundles up both data and voice communication in a more cost-effective manner

Features a board that can work both in and out of the office

If you're a small business making a transition into a more modern platform, this is one of the things you should do first. Being cost-effective gives you the freedom to help move things along in other aspects of your brand. Take this phone option to help you get ahead in your overall business strategy.

Multi-Functional System

When you get a VoIP telephone, you need the right functionality to help make your daily activities a lot easier to complete. From taking phone calls, faxes, emails, and web conferences, you'll have all the things you need under one device. Also, you'll have a plug-and-play system that allows you to do it by yourself.

You won't need a separate team to get things started or go through someone that may overcharge you. In case you have a colleague who's out of the office, you can record a voicemail and send it to their mobile device or fax machine. It's a more efficient way of keeping in contact with your most trusted staff members.

More Versatile

Using a VoIP device over one network helps you scale things better with more options to help you cater to your clients. Not to mention, this type of service has a more secure network with sound encryption protocols in place to help you protect sensitive messages from getting corrupted. In case you're handling a call, you can get a virtual assistant to put a prerecorded message or music on while a customer waits to speak with a representative.

By having various features to help you and your clients better communicate, a VoIP phone is useful to keep your business afloat longer.

Service Mobility

If your business is on-the-go, VoIP services can be a tremendous benefit to you because they will follow you wherever you go.

On a traditional phone system, a line that runs to a home or business is assigned its own phone number. Any movement that takes place then becomes a trial of remembering the right codes or keys to dial on your phone. A lot of time can then be wasted by contacting phone companies to transfer services and phone numbers to new locations.

With a VoIP phone system, all of this is eliminated. There are no physical limitations. You have the freedom to move as your business demands without any added stress.

Simple Conference Calls

The features just mentioned are not all that’s made easy by VoIP. Since all calls use a converged data network instead of dedicated phone lines, creating and participating in conference calls are made much easier.

It’s possible to take part in conference calls if your business uses a traditional phone system, but what you will find is that you will have to pay for an additional service to host multiple callers for a conference. These services are native to many VoIP phone systems. Instead of paying for something extra, you can take advantage of the ability to make conference calls as an added benefit to the service you already pay for.

Not only that, but VoIP services make video conferences much easier as well. Of course, these sorts of conferences are usually special cases, but face-to-face interaction with colleagues and clients, while business personnel are out of the office, is much more manageable with VoIP phone systems.

What Is The Difference Between Peering & IP Transit?

Peering & IP Transit Differences

Peering


Peering, better stated as IP peering is the agreed-upon exchange of data between two ISPs and the amount of data exchanged is generally very close to equal. IP transit is when one entity pays another for the right to transit its upstream network. This removes the need for either party to pay a third party.

In most cases, the relevant ISPs do not charge for this agreement because both parties will share the benefit of the arrangement so this procedure is termed “Settlement Free.” It is a basic agreement by both parties to establish a no-charge exchange.

IP Transit


In the activity of IP Transit, a designated service ISP enables traffic to move through their network to its final destination. No matter how your business connects to the Internet, you will need to use IP transit to some degree. IP Transit is a service where an Internet Service Provider (ISP) allows traffic to travel through their network to its final destination.

IP transit is when one entity pays another for the right to transit its upstream network. In this arrangement, one entity is higher than the other in the hierarchy so there is no longer a peering relationship from an internet standpoint because both parties do not benefit equally from the exchange. When enterprises connect to an ISP for the purpose of reaching the entire internet, it is known as IP transit. This should not be confused with connecting to an ISP over border gateway protocol (BGP) peering for internet connectivity. BGP peering is a network definition, not an ISP definition. Additionally, peering is only for a participant’s prefixes and their directly connected peer.

Breaking it down

In terms of a peering life-cycle, a helpful point of view is from a routing standpoint.

In specific terms, the routing network exchange between routing peers. Moving through the life-cycle. the received routes become more concise as the destinations become more concise.

You must be very careful to maintain routing equipoise because of the potential for several types of peering based on data flows to discrete destinations. Entities must remember that peering is a mutual agreement so collocation and IX providers are in place to allow for a connection. That said, organizations should keep in mind that these connections must be of mutual agreement so a fair amount of research into each entity is recommended.

For IP transit, you should look for a collocation provider with a rich ecosystem of providers to provide IP transit as the lowest-cost way to reach all internet destinations on a cost per megabits per second (Mbps) basis.

Overview

The Internet is made up of over 25,000 independent systems that autonomously route the movement of traffic. Peering is often utilized as a conduit for the interaction and synergy of traffic to move over the Internet from one end-user to another end user.

When enterprises are connected, peering is essential for all Internet Service Providers, Content Delivery Networks, and backbone service providers.

Peering agreements remove third party agreements as follows:

✔ Much lower transit costs

✔ Greater control of routing networks

✔ Superior network performance

✔ Increasing redundancy by using multiple stations

✔ Increase bandwidth capacity

✔ Utilizing peering partners to enhance support systems

Key Takeaways

  • Both public and private peering open vital avenues for two networks to connect at a collocation and exchange traffic directly without having to pay a third party to carry traffic across the Internet.

  • To enter into a peering agreement with most Internet service providers, you must have at least a publicly routed ASN, one block of public IP addresses, and a network edge router capable of running Border Gateway Protocol.

Focus on the Environment

The work environment is the single most important thing to look for when checking out coworking spaces. The space should inspire confidence and creativity and be perfect for productive work. Excellent networking opportunities are an added bonus.

The Importance of Flexibility

A change in setting or time can do wonders for productivity. This helps prevent monotony and keeps people refreshed. A flexible coworking space should have multiple areas where people can work, each with its own flavor.

You can look at coworking spaces that have a network of different themed locations if you really want to take this to the next level.

Here are 10 of our best tips for getting the design of your shared workspace right.

1. Offer wifi and wired connections

Some people need a hardwired connection. Others, especially in open coworking areas, are fine with wifi. Offer both options to appeal to a broad range of professionals. (Remember, you can charge more for your spaces with hard-wired connections.)

2. Plan for storage in the design of your space

Some of your members will need locking storage. Others will have their whole world on their laptop or tablet. Offer locking storage options for those who want to store items at the space.

3. Don’t put all your eggs in one basket

As a workspace operator, you’re renting space from a landlord, making that commitment for a large space over a long period of time, and chopping it up into smaller bits on very short-term commitments.

In order for that to work financially, it’s very important that no one entity/member is responsible for too big a portion of your income. That way, if you lose one person or company, it’s not that big of an impact on your business. You stabilize your income by not relying too heavily on one or two entities.

4. Create a courtyard feel

One of the important design elements of a coworking space is a courtyard feel, with the open coworking area as your central hub. This creates a vibrancy in the space and prevents your private office members from being isolated. People are in a coworking center because they want vibrancy and connection, so avoid designing a space with long, dark hallways.

What to Look For

When looking for a drop in coworking space, keeping these criteria in mind can help you find a reliable, comfortable space that scores high on performance and productivity.
