Now working remotely doesn’t have to mean the business owner has to do everything themselves as it was before. It’s 2016 and in time even today’s virtual office will evolve into something better. Technology has changed the way we operate on a day to day basis. This includes the way we do business. Social media means that now the market we want to reach is closer than ever before. Using it the right way can make a big difference in dividends. The same can be said for how businesses operate remotely.
Operating and running a business remotely moves into the digital age with the advent and growth of the virtual office. In today’s competitive market a virtual office can move remote business owners to the forefront of the market they are in. Using a virtual office has never been easier. After the crash of 2008 business owners had to become creative if they wanted to survive and working from home or remotely became the go to for most, saving thousands of dollars per year. Previously virtual offices were available and growth had remained steady, but after the crash these remote business owners found the niche that a vo provided not only gave them the professional image but presence in a market they basically could not afford to compete in.
For a small monthly fee, much less than any dedicated office could ever provide previously, virtual offices offered services such as live call answering by a professional receptionist with calls transferred to the owner wherever they requested, along with voicemail to email, and faxes to email. Additionally, mail service or business license address service gave them exclusive use of a local office space or executive suite’s brick and mortar address along with an assigned suite number. Combined these two services created the image and presence along with professional profile the small, remote business owner lacked by working from home or elsewhere. Lastly, with conference rooms, day offices, shared office space and workstations the remote business owner can leave the confines of their dreary home offices and head out into the business world and society as a professional without all the overhead.
