A virtual business address gives your business a physical address with services that you would find within a normal office, such as meeting rooms, a receptionist, and mail handling. Except the main difference with a virtual office is that you don’t have to be tied down to a long-term lease and invest heavily into it. You can give the appearance of being a large company within a desirable location, whilst working from your home office or a coffee shop! Here are just 5 ways your business can thrive with a virtual office
1. A reputable location
With a virtual business address, you can have an address within a prime location, without having to pay the extortionate office rental rates. You can choose to be within an area that is well-connected and has a good reputation, and be close to your competitors at the same time. The business address can be promoted on your business stationary, email signature and website. This will also enhance your local SEO by having your location showing on your Google My Business listing.
2. A dedicated receptionist
As a business owner, and particularly for those who are just starting out, it is important to invest your time into parts of the business which are going to generate revenue. Administrative tasks take up a lot of time, and would be much better handled by a virtual receptionist. It all depends on the virtual office packages provided, but most virtual offices provide some form of mail and telephone call handling to help make your life a little easier. Our 5 ways your business can thrive with a virtual office could all be used up on this topic alone but let’s crack on.
3. No large overheads
When starting a new business, in order to make profits you need to keep your expenditures as low as possible. A virtual office costs about as much as your mobile phone contract. In addition, there are no long-term leases or maintenance costs associated with it. Your overheads will be extremely low using a virtual office. This allows you to save and invest in areas of your business that need the expenditure.
4. Ideal business growth opportunities
A great way to attract clients from a new geographical location is by having a virtual office. First of all, they will be able to find you more easily on search engines as your business will be showing as in the same location as theirs. Secondly, onboarding a client in a new city is much easier if you are based there. You can have face-to-face meetings easily with your team and your client at the virtual office location.
5. Flexible option
We have touched on this already, but virtual office membership plans are extremely flexible. You can sign up for as little or as long as you like. You might even receive a discount if you sign up for a full year. This means your virtual office package can be tailored to your exact needs.
There you go we have given you 5 ways your business can thrive with a virtual office but of course, there are many more.
