    COVID-19 has put a lot of strain on the business model of coworking spaces. While participating at countless online meetings about the situation one thing becomes obvious: virtual coworking is becoming very important. And Coworkies is already a big virtual representation of countless coworking spaces. So how does one create and manage a virtual coworking space on Coworkies? Read on and find out how to make your coworking space be present in the digital world and attract new customers.
  • 1. Start with building trust. Create your personal account. As some people say Coworkies is the “Linkedin for coworking people”. So make sure to have a good profile, where people can see who you are.
  • 2. If you don't have your virtual coworking space profile set up, make one HERE. Once one, you can customize its look by accessing your Admin panel. Make sure to write a unique and compelling story. Some ideas you can think of:
    • - Why is your coworking community unique?
    • - What can people gain by joining your virtual coworking space?
    • - What are the online activities you offer to your members?

  • 3. Once you have your coworking space profile set up make sure you add your team and invite your current coworkers. Why is this important? To make virtual coworking work and attract virtual members, they need to see who is in your community. They can see if they are a good fit and if they can offer something valuable to you and vice versa. Spaces with more than 10 members are trustworthy and people can expect to have good encounters and conversations. For example if a virtual coworker from Japan wants to join a virtual coworking space from Porto they need to see who is part of this community, how active it is and how this can be beneficial to all parties involved. Which brings us to the next point.
  • 4. Being active. Things don't just happen. Make sure you post the activities of your space regularly so that when people search for your virtual coworking space they can see what is going on every day and see if they want to join you. Make sure you have special offers for members only. Again be creative. Make language group lessons, skills sharing or other community-based activities.
  • 5. Share your coworking space profile on social media and welcome guests from other cities or countries. Make people travel virtually and be your member.
