You may have seen BLANKSPACES on 2nd St. in Santa Monica. They have several locations around Southern California. And now they have one more!
During the month of October Satellite Santa Monica will be transitioning to BLANKSPACES, owned by Jerome Chang. Jerome and I have known each other for many years, starting our coworking businesses at about the same time. (Well, he’s a year older in the business.) Our visions align, and he truly is a great operator, committed to the ethos of coworking.
Aaron will still be here for you, and most things will stay the same for now. Your next bill, of course, will carry the BLANKSPACES name, but your plan isn’t changing, and there’s nothing you need to do.
It has been wonderful working with all of you for so long, but at this point, Ken and I need to focus on our base in Northern California and the software we’ve created to run coworking spaces, Deskworks. We feel you will be so much better served by Jerome, who is based near you.
Please feel free to contact us, Aaron or Jerome if you have any questions at all. And if you’re up in the Bay Area, stop in!
Please join us for a FREE day of coworking in celebration of International Coworking Day on August 9, 2022. We are opening our doors to all for a chance to try our space, meet neighbors, and be productive!
At Satellite Workplaces, we believe a new, healthy work-life balance, coupled with vibrant, active communities, can be created using remote technology tools and local, connected workspace: a 21st Century Village in which people can minimize commutes and work anywhere in the world while physically living and connecting in their chosen community.
On August 9th, we are celebrating our commitment to providing comfortable, connected, affordable community workplaces. We believe local coworking spaces have the power to enhance walkable communities and vibrant town cores, reduce CO2 emissions and gridlocked roads, and improve workers’ quality of life.
Please join us on August 9th at any of our locations for a full day of coworking, on us! Bring your friends and get to work!
We’ve been looking forward to writing this “Welcome Back” message for over a year and finally, the time is right.
California is opening, masks can come off, social distancing is a thing of the past, and business in person can resume… if you’ve had your vaccinations and waited the requisite two weeks. If you’re not vaccinated, per state mandate, please still wear your mask and social distance at Satellite Workplaces.
The safety and cleanliness procedures that we implemented at the Satellites paid off — we did not have a single case of Covid at our centers! We will keep many of the safety procedures in place until further notice. We will continue using Hospital Grade MERV13 filters in our A/C systems and will retain the HEPA air filtration units, scattered around our centers. We will keep the NanoSeptic skins affixed to “high-touch” surfaces to kill viruses and bacteria on contact (https://www.nanoseptic.com). All this will help to enhance the cleanliness of our work environments and help to protect your health.
We’d like to extend a special thanks to those of you that retained your memberships throughout the pandemic and allowed us to stay in operation. Over the next couple of months, we’re expecting Satellite Workplaces to become more robust than ever. Employers have seen that their knowledge workers can do their work remotely and effectively — and we can provide professional work environments close to where they live. The net effect reduces traffic, commuting costs, carbon footprint and enhances quality of life.
So, to all of you who are returning members, all those who will be trying us out for the first time, and all those who have stayed with us, welcome! We’re ready to provide space, security, comfort, and, as always, a great community!!
As you probably know, Google changes their algorithms all the time, and Google My Business in flexible workspaces is currently in the crosshairs.
Google wants to know that you are actually working out of a space, that you have office hours, and that you can really be found there! They have indicated that you should have a suite number, a sign showing your business, and are open at that location for some period of time each week.
To that end, Satellite Workplaces has created a Business Presence – GMB plan. We can’t, of course, guarantee that you will get a GMB listing, but we can certainly increase your odds!
The Business Presence – GMB plan includes:
Everything included in the Business Presence Plan (mailbox, fob for 24/7 access to the center, member pricing, Meet Our Members presence on the website)
Directory Board – your company name on the directory board by the front door
Unique Suite Number – if the center is, say Suite #200, your suite number is #200-xxx (with xxx representing your mailbox number).
4 half-days of open coworking per month
We can also include staffed hours for you. Contact us to sign up now or quote what you need!
