One of my good friends has started an office furniture business. A couple of months ago he decided to go online with the entire catalogue etc. I did some research into this market and despite finding quite a few searches on Google India per month, I’m a bit skeptical about people buying this thing online. Secondly – if you do end up getting top rankings for “office furniture”, then its your corporate responsibility to deliver throughout India, else just market it for Delhi related keyphrases? We’ve been brain storming about all that. Here’s an article by him that explains how to choose office furniture. All the best to him! And boy, his stuff is really very good!
Choose the best Office Furniture Design in 3 easy steps
Around the world, there are various websites that offer office furniture but with so much choice, how do you go about choosing the best designs for your office furniture?
Following are some guidelines that’ll help you figure out how to choose the best furniture design for your office:
- Be specific about what you need to buy – Don’t just waste your time browsing eye catching images. With numerous office furniture websites available, I would personally recommend you to first decide what exactly you want to buy for your office. Lets say you want to buy Storage Racks for your office. Then you must search specifically for Office Storage Racks rather than searching for Office Furniture. The reason being that when you would search for Office Furniture, you would also get results for Office Chairs, Office Bookshelves, Office Almirahs, Office Cabinets, Office Lockers etc. which is not your focus right now. So be specific whenever you search for a keyword. You don’t want to spend your time viewing good pictures of Office Lockers and Cabinets when you don’t want to buy them.
- Checkout multiple websites for good bargains. While choosing furniture online, you must checkout at least 5 websites and see what all products they have to offer. All the websites must be different in designs but they would offer more or less similar products. Its very important to choose your design and then compare it on different websites for product features and maintenance features. Checking out other websites might also help you to discover some special offers which might not be available on a single website.
- Don’t hesitate in requesting a quote. Often online visitors don’t request for a price quote. I think this is high time that they should understand that not all products which are sold online have a price tag attached with them. It is perfectly normal and often suggested for an online customer to ask for a price quote and a good bargain on a price that the seller is offering. It just takes less than 30 seconds to fill a small contact/request quote form and ask for a good bargain on the price. Alternately, it doesn’t even take 5 seconds to make a call to the vendor and negotiate on the prices. So if you need a good bargain on a product, do fill that small form and/or negotiate with the vendor.
I am sure all the aforesaid points will help you choose the right furniture for your office.
