Tips to Keep Your Business Running While Camping
So, you’ve decided to take your business on the road and do some camping. Congratulations! Whether you’re a full-time outdoorsy person or just looking to get away from the office for a weekend, Hawley Farm Glamping lists some things you should think about to make sure your business doesn’t suffer while you’re enjoying the great outdoors.
Choosing a Campsite
First, let’s talk about choosing a campsite. Located near Kansas City, It’s hard to beat all that Hawley Farm Glamping has to offer, where you’ll feel like you’re staying in your own personal suite on secluded private acreage. The farm has 210 acres of an upscale glamping experience.
Some campgrounds offer similar amenities, but not all of them do. Uprooted Traveler notes that you may also want to consider other amenities like power hookups and water access.
Once you’ve found a campground that has the amenities you need, it’s time to start thinking about your campsite. If you’re going to be working a lot while you’re camping, you’ll want to make sure you have a level spot for your tent or RV.
You’ll also want to be sure to choose a spot that’s not too close to the bathrooms or any other high-traffic areas. Also, be sure to come prepared with plenty of outdoor gear to ensure an enjoyable experience.
Now that you’ve chosen a campsite, let’s talk about how you can get online. If your campground offers Wi-Fi, great! You should be able to connect your laptop or other devices and get online without any problems. However, if your campground doesn’t offer Wi-Fi, you’ll need to find another way to get online.
As such, PC Magazine points out that you might consider using your phone’s data plan or buying a portable hotspot. Either option will create its own Wi-Fi network. You can connect your devices to the hotspot and get online just like you would with any other Wi-Fi network.
You can use your time outside to do some writing for your website, material, for instance, that you can use for content marketing purposes. When you create and share content online, whether on blog posts on your website or content for your social media presence, interest in your product or service builds and your brand grows.

Keeping Devices Charged
Once you’re online, you’ll want to make sure your devices are charged so you can respond quickly to any issues that come up. If you’re using your laptop, you can plug it into a power strip and use a camping lantern as a makeshift desk lamp. For other devices, like your phone, you may want to invest in a portable charger.
General Business Pointers
Now that you’ve got the basics covered, let’s talk about some general business pointers for camping.
First, if you’re going to be working while you’re camping, make sure you set realistic expectations with your clients or customers. Let them know that you may not be able to respond as quickly as you normally would.
Second, if you’re going to be away from your office for an extended period of time, make sure you have someone who can cover for you. This could be a virtual assistant, a family member, or a friend.
Whoever it is, make sure they have your contact information and know-how to reach you in case of an emergency.
Thirdly, consider forming an LLC, as you’ll enjoy tax advantages, limited liability, greater flexibility, and less paperwork to deal with. Just keep in mind that every state is different in how they handle LLC regulations, so you’ll need to make sure you comply with your state.
Also, consider creating an eye-catching meme for your social media pages or website. To make this easier, a meme maker tool can be useful. You can use this online tool to tweak colors and graphics to your liking, as well as add animation, and do so within just minutes.
Finally, if you’re going to be away from your office for more than a week, make sure you have a plan for dealing with mail and other paperwork. You may want to have someone hold your mail for you, or you may want to set up a forwarding address.
Phew! That’s a lot of information to think about before you go camping. But if you follow these tips, you’ll be able to keep your business running smoothly even while you’re enjoying the great outdoors. Happy camping!
