What is your company image worth may seem like a strange question to ask. Please stick with us because all will become clear in a moment. By company image, we don’t mean your logo we mean how the world sees your company.
This time last year, it was announced that 4.2 million people in the UK were working from home. Within this figure, there are hundreds of thousands, if not millions of people who are self-employed. Many of these will have their registered business address as their home address. If you’re one of these people then the question is, will your business address have any impact on your prospective customers’ buying decision? In the case of the vast majority of businesses out there, the answer will be yes it will.
The power of the internet
With the power of Google, people can shop around more easily and be even nosier when it comes to finding out about your business. It takes a matter of seconds to drop an address into Google maps to pinpoint your company’s exact location. Prospective customers are going to want to find out as much as possible about you, including where you are based. Imagine one of your target customers found yours and another company offering virtually exactly the same service. The other company had its registered business address in the town centre. Yours is showing up in the middle of a residential area (in other words, your home). Which do you think the customer is more likely to choose? That is why it is essential to have a strong and positive company image.
At this point, you may be thinking, “I simply wouldn’t be able to afford the overheads of an office”. But that doesn’t have to be the case…
Your own office, virtually
Just because having your own office space in the town centre will work out too expensive, doesn’t mean that you can’t promote your company’s image through another means. You need a Virtual Office. They essentially have the main perks of real physical offices, just without the extortionate overheads. Registered business address, mail handling, phone answering services are just a few of the benefits they have to offer. All for a fraction of the price you would be looking at for physical office space. So you need to ask yourself, what is your company image worth? Are you content losing customers because you are unable to give off the trustworthy company image that people are looking for? Or are you willing to spend as little as £10 a month on a Virtual Office package that gives your business a more professional image?
