Six months has flown by and BDCWorks has really grown. Not only in numbers (we aren’t doing too bad) but the real focus has been to build brand awareness, build a solid community and make it a unique space that keeps people coming back for more.
So why choose BDCWorks?
That’s a very good question, but one I can definitely answer.
The BDC is oozing with history, character and a buzz like no other.
With 500,000 peeps coming through the door each year who knows who you will stumble across.
The space, BDCWorks- is perfectly situated at the back of the BDC so disruption is kept to a minimum and is a little piece of Shoreditch you won’t want to leave.
We have attracted all sorts of businesses but if you are in the design or events industries the benefits of being within this space are next to none.
We are flexible and fun but also a great working environment that will increase productivity.
Oh and one more thing- If you are tired or just had one too many at lunch or the night before don’t panic- you can nap on our day bed (don’t worry this is a no judgement zone).
Challenges we have faced
In an already saturated market the focus when opening BDCWorks has been to really identify with why people would choose us instead of one of our larger competitors in the area.
Getting people in the door was a very important aim and figuring out how to get traction from our USP— the shows/events.
When starting out you have all the complications of sales and marketing, people, productivity, facing operational challenges, money and juggling all of them at the same time. It has been a learning process but what I have realised is to practice what you preach.
Ask people around you and use the members in your space- sharing knowledge is powerful and remember most of them are in the same position.
Spreading the love. It costs nothing after all.
Building Relationships is really important to our community and who knows who you may stumble across. It has been recorded that 91% of Coworkers have better interactions in a working environment. At BDCWorks we have taken the time to really get to know our members, what they do and how we can help them to grow and how they can help us grow.
