No matter what type of business you’re in, if you are a remote business owner or startup, eventually you are going to need to move forward if you’re doing well. It’s the natural progression of things. If we fail, we stop. We either change course or try something new.
The next step for any growing remote business is an increasingly popular trend. Particularly for those who need a receptionist to answer or transfer calls to them, someplace to hang their license, find a meeting room or workstation etc.
The trend is a virtual office and they have been on the rise since the economic collapse of 2008 which changed many things in our culture today including business. VO’s found their foothold because startups and entrepreneurs had to become more creative and adapt to this new economic landscape in order to survive and thrive.
A virtual office is generally provided by a local office or executive suite provider. Hint: If you want to keep your dollars in your community, this is the right thing to do. There are plenty of national franchises that operate for call answering, but if you use a local provider, your people will understand your community and be able to give directions etc…
The service will include phone, mail and conference rooms together as a package or alone and separate or as needed. Call around and see which address and facility best meets your needs.
