A simple question, why have real premises? Physical offices are soon to be a thing of the past. This particularly true after the disaster of a year that 2020 was. Many business owners are making the move away from physical offices. They are now running their businesses from the comfort of their own homes.
Having an office has always been highly regarded, and is often associated with being ‘good for business’. It is a place where you can meet clients, the phone can be answered efficiently, and it is a postal address where you can receive mail. It is also good to have an office address on the ‘About Us’ page of your website, for added credibility. What if we told you that you could have all of these things, at a fraction of the cost? That is where Venture Offices virtual offices packages come in. Why have real premises when you can have all these features virtually
Thinking about your clients
We understand that one of your main concerns is probably what your potential clients will think. What if they realise you no longer have a physical office? Here it is important to take the time to ask yourself this question. Are your clients really that interested in where your place of work is? Or are they more concerned about the level and quality of service or product that you offer? Let’s be honest, they are your client because they value what you provide. They are not bothered whether or not you have a bricks-and-mortar office.
Virtual offices are popular
Although your clients may be impressed by a swanky office with all the latest gadgets and nice furniture, is that something you can really afford? Or would you end up with a nice office in a less desirable location just so you had somewhere you could work? Virtual offices are actually becoming a much more accepted part of business, so no one is going to judge your company image any less for having one.
If you think about it, potential customers may actually see a virtual office as a good thing. You are trying to keep your overheads low, so that you can provide the same great service or product at a competitive rate. The reduction in these overheads will mean that your clients will not have to pay for your offices and staff on top of the service they are receiving. A win-win situation really!
Professional call answering
One of the other great benefits of having a virtual office is that some packages provide a call answering service. This means that all enquiries are dealt with professionally, without interrupting your day. Does it really matter whether you are working from your own individual office or a shared office (essentially a virtual office)?
If you are thinking of moving away from a traditional office and are looking to reduce your overheads, a virtual office could be the solution you are looking for.
