The smallest office in the world isn’t what you think. For business owners just starting out, leasing a small office for a lot of money isn’t the only choice. There are alternatives to overpriced, undersized and understaffed office space. It’s an office so small you can’t even see it, because it’s virtual! A virtual office is the perfect choice for entrepreneurs, startups and small business owners who just can’t see paying big prices for small spaces.
A virtual office is an office without walls, yet with the same services as a dedicated office space or an executive suite. For a small monthly fee, business owners will receive a phone and fax line. In addition, the option for live call answering at this assigned phone number. In many instances you can have a line ported into this assigned number and that way you can continue to operate with the same business line. Another option is to simply have your calls bypass the receptionist and transferred to you on your cell or other remote location you operate from. In addition, calls can be screened and forwarded to you or to a voicemail accessible via email. Faxes are also available to you via email. Phone service helps create credibility.
Mail services can be added to your services as well. Sometimes referred to as a business license address, a mail service is basically using the office space facility as your own. Usually with an assigned suite number. Your mail will also be delivered to this address and if need be forwarding is available to you wherever you are. Mail services are used to create a presence when you cannot or it is not beneficial for you to be physically present.
Furthermore, the use of conference, meeting and day rooms are options available to virtual office ‘tenants’. Pricing generally begins with the lowest option such a mail services. Conference rooms help create a professional image for those all-important meetings or signings.
