Businesses are becoming leaner in order to stay competitive—some consisting only of one or two employees. Although this is a growing trend, these business owners don’t always want to let on that they’re a one-person shop. Every entrepreneur wants to be perceived as professional and credible, and in order to do so, they need the technology, support, and image that larger firms and corporations can afford. That’s where booking meeting room rentals can be a great advantage. Booking a meeting room makes you look prestigious and gives you all the capabilities of a big business without breaking your budget. There are five business resources that you can take advantage of when booking meeting rooms and office spaces.

Effective small-business branding is one of the most important things you can do to get ahead of the competition. It encompasses every aspect of your business, from what your salespeople wear during presentations to how a video conference call is handled. Your brand should tell your customers who you are and what you offer—clearly, quickly and confidently. So what are the musts? Here are some business branding tips.
A Great Logo
A swoosh, an apple and golden arches: Branding for Nike, Apple and McDonalds has been so successful that their logos are some of the most widely recognized symbols in the world. Incredibly, in 1971 Nike paid a freelancer just $35 for its now iconicswoosh – one of the biggest branding bargains ever. Pay a graphic designer to create a logo for you. It may cost more than $35, but it will be well worth it.
Small business owners today are doing much more with much less, thanks to mobility. With the ability to work across time zones, they can have more flexibility and grow their business.
Apps (short for application software) are a key component of mobile tools. Made famous by Apple in 2008, apps have become so popular that in 2010 “app” was named word of the year by the American Dialect Society. And since then, they have become a game changer for small businesses.
The DavinciMeetingRooms.com app was designed as part of Davinci’s meeting room booking system to give business owners the ability to reserve an office, meeting or conference room on the go, taking as little time as possible while you get precisely what you need.
