Small business startups are facing terrible odds. The rate of success is very low. Why do so many businesses fail? There are a multitude of reasons why and volumes have been written trying to explain but it all comes down to a lot of hard work and a little luck.
Increase the odds in favor of your business by building up what you have from a remote work location such as home or somewhere you can work without distraction. When you’ve reached the point where it no longer makes sense, you don’t have to jump to an expensive office space just yet. In fact, you can probably maintain the level of success by continuing to work from home and save your hard earned dollars.
Try a virtual office for creating a professional image, a presence in the market you operate and get some much needed office services without hiring a staff. Virtual offices provide many startups with services perfect for those who wish to maintain the flexibility and freedom that comes with being your own boss. Working remotely doesn’t mean you can present your business with the same professional image as a business working from a brick and mortar location. Today’s savvy business folks know much can be done online or remotely.
Services are provided by your local office space or executive suite provider. Some services can be provided by national franchises but usually will then enlist a local office in turn. These include live call answering by a professional receptionist who will answer your calls in your company name and transfer them to you anywhere. Calls can be sent to a voicemail to email where you can listen to them anytime. Faxes can also be sent to your email in pdf form.
Mail or business license address service is another great addition whereby a brick and mortar office will allow you exclusive use of their business address along with an assigned suite number. Here your mail will be received and either held for pick up by your or forwarded to you upon request in a secure manner. Perfect also for those whose city requires a business license hanging service.
Conference rooms for those all-important meetings, signings or presentations. Impress your clients and associates alike. Stop meeting them in coffee shops. For a small monthly fee all or one of these services can be yours. Most are available as stand alones or as part of virtual office package.
