The odds really are against small business owners, but that shouldn’t stop them. That is what makes America great. We persevere when the odds are not in our favor. There are many things a remote or startup can do, to help them achieve their goals. First and foremost are financing, licensing, attorneys and marketing. Once those are in line, generally speaking, the rest is just hard work and a lot of luck. Or is it?
Many home and remote businesses are choosing virtual offices to assist them with their office needs. Affordable, convenient and easy, virtual offices offer a service(s) that can be leased short term, and in return, great benefits to the business owner.
Services include live call answering in the company name by a friendly, local receptionist to transfer calls to you wherever you wish. Voicemail and faxes sent to your email. (Perfect for lawyers and advisors that need to save important information or anyone else that needs to.)
Mail service or what is sometimes called, a business license address service is another great option for virtual office clients. With this service they will receive exclusive use of the virtual office provider, usually an office space or executive suite, usually with an assigned suite number. This allows them the security they need for not supplying their customers with their home address. They no longer have to worry about being home all the time to accept packages and prevent them from being stolen off their porches. It also helps establish the home or remote business by creating a physical location for them when they can not be there and builds trust between them and their clients.
Perhaps the above mentioned services are not required, but only a temporary workplace. In that case, many locations offer workstations, shared offices, conference rooms and day offices. This allows them to stop meeting clients in coffee shops and present their business in a more professional image even if it’s just for themselves to work outside of the home office temporarily.
With short term leases, convenience and tremendous benefits, a virtual office is the solution to those who work from home or remotely.
