A dedicated office space is wonderful and can save you so much time, but they are expensive and if you are a startup or entrepreneur that’s probably not the best idea. The risk is high and the leases are long. Consider a virtual office. For a small monthly fee you can purchase standalone services such as live call answering, mail service aka business license hanging service, conference room and day office usage all designed to help create a presence and professional image.
Virtual offices are a growing trend among small business owners as they allow for the flexibility and freedom many business owners now demand. The economic crash called for new and creative ways to market and do business. Virtual offices survived as they became the go-to service for those professionals on the go such as private practice lawyers, CPA’s and regional offices. They are so much more cost effective to operate and the business owner can do business at their own pace. Many people have found the balance between their personal lives and professional lives so much easier to handle when they work remotely.
Services such as live call answering is done by a professional operator or receptionist and calls are answered in the business owner’s’ company name and can be transferred to them anywhere they wish including a voicemail to email accessible 24/7 along with faxes via a pdf. This then creates a polished and professional image just as if one would be physically present in a dedicated office space. Clients and vendors alike will be put at ease. Mail service also provides the business owner with a physical address that is not the owner’s home address or a strip mall. A suite number is usually assigned as well. Conference use or day offices are perfect for those all-important signings and meetings. Present your business in the best possible light for the most affordable and uncomplicated manner with a virtual office.
