It is safe to say that COVID-19 is impacting every aspect of our lives, and businesses have been hit hard. Small business owners and freelancers are facing even greater challenges when it comes to reopening post-lockdown. It is a case of finding a way forward to grow the business, whilst reducing outgoing costs as much as possible. One way to boost your brand is to use a virtual office, in order to attract potential new clients. Let’s have a look at this in a bit more detail, and see how a virtual office can help promote your services.
Advantages of a virtual office for Freelancers
For start-up businesses in particular, a virtual office can really help to boost credibility. Rather than using your home address, having a business address helps to build confidence with your potential clients. It also helps to show that your business is legitimate and trustworthy.
When freelancers look to rent office space they often find this involves a high fixed price and a long-term contract. By opting for a virtual office you are removing those expensive overhead costs, which could give your business the financial freedom you need. Meaning that you have more budget to put towards growing and marketing your business.
This advantage is often overlooked. Having your personal data for your business all over the internet can lead to a very mixed business and personal life. When choosing a virtual office package, you can add extra services such as access to a local phone number and a business address. This means you can keep your personal data out of the public domain.
Growing your reputation
Renting a virtual office will not only give you access to extra services such as telephone numbers but also mail scanning and forwarding. By using a proper business address to receive and hold your mail, you don’t need to worry about potentially missing out on important documents.
Virtual offices also come with impressive facilities which will help you to attract more clients. You will have access to physical on-site meeting rooms as and when you need them. This takes a lot of pressure off when you are trying to organise meetings with clients and potential customers. This will help to again improve the credibility of your business.
Admin duties taken care of
Administration can be a time-consuming task. As a freelancer, you will want to focus on the parts of your business that generate revenue. Virtual office admin teams are on hand to take care of these admin tasks, from phone calls to diary management. They will even be able to filter out unsolicited calls, giving you more time to focus on the leads that matter.
For small businesses, start-ups and freelancers, times are extremely challenging right now. Why not reduce your overheads and swap to a virtual office? With more flexibility, low monthly costs, and a huge range of other business benefits, a virtual office could be the solution to help grow your business.
