We hear this question a lot – why should I book a workspace through RuuM if I could just work from a cafe or from home for free? I’m glad you asked. Here’s why.
You don’t have to guess and wonder if you’ll have a place to work from, with RuuM booking you can be sure that you’re expected and there’s a dedicated workspace waiting for you. This allows you to start working as soon as you arrive and not waste any time.
No need to keep ordering coffee to justify your stay
When you have a booking made through RuuM, the cafe is well aware of why you’re there and you don’t have to keep ordering drinks and food just to justify your stay.
No weird looks from the staff
Same as above, you don’t have to feel bad about the extended stay because your booking is supporting the workspace owners and they want you to have a good workday there.
File it as a business expense
Through RuuM platform you’re renting a workspace and that’s a legitimate business expense. Ask us for the invoice.
Special offers and perks
A lot of the workspaces offer special perks if you book a workday with them. Check their RuuM profiles to learn what exactly they’re offering. It’s common to offer free coffee for all the bookings that are at least 3 hours and some places also give extra discounts on lunch offers.
Support local businesses
Local businesses and especially small cafes have had a hard time throughout the pandemic to keep the lights on. Booking a workday with them is also a way to support them.
Better mental health
It’s proven that working from a home office is an extremely isolating experience. It’s good for your mental health if you get out of the house and spend a workday in a new and inspiring environment.
Flexible, no long-term commitment
Typically coworking spaces want you to commit to a month-long stay. This means that you would need to show up almost every day to justify the expense. With RuuM, you can be as flexible as you want – come once a week, only for 5 hours at a time, skip a week, whatever you feel like doing.
Low friction, quick booking
Find a place, book it and show up. RuuM’s booking process is very straightforward and quick, especially when comparing it to spending a single day in a coworking space. You would have to call or email them about a possible availability and the whole process takes a lot of time.
Got interested? Great! Now head over to RuuM and book your first workspace stay. We already have some great places listed there and a lot more to come.
