It’s not impossible for you to get help for your remote business. Maybe you’re a small upstart, but that doesn’t mean you have to do it all alone or you can’t have the professional image you so desire.
Consider a virtual office. A virtual office is/are service(s) provided to remote businesses owners by local or national companies who specialize in just this type of business. By offering services such as a phone/fax line with live call answering (in the company’s name), call forwarding, voicemail to email, faxes to email, business address service with an assigned suite number, mail service (mail receipt/forwarding) in a secure manner, exclusive use of the local office space/vo provider’s address with your own assigned suite number. Conference/meeting and day office use as well.
These services are designed to create a professional image, a presence for your business in a geographical and physical locale as well as help create that all important trust between business owner and client that your remote business so desperately needs. Most remote business owners work from home and that means you’re less likely to be perceived as a professional business.
A virtual office works to remove the stigma of remote work. Do your due diligence and research the facility before you sign a lease. Check out the reviews for the office space/virtual office provider and the lease for any hidden fees.
