Virtual offices are the perfect pairing for a remote business owner. Many small businesses such as private practice lawyers, CPAs, financial planners and many others are finding that there are office services available to them they never knew existed. Virtual offices saw a rise in the mid 2000’s after the financial crash. Dedicated offices became out of reach for many startups and entrepreneurs.
VO’s are a series of services provided to small business owners who can’t afford or don’t dedicated office space. These services include live call answering in the business owner’s name and transferring these calls to the owner at whatever number they choose whether it be a landline, a cell or a satellite office in another part of the country. They also provide the business owner with voicemail to email as well as faxes to email.
In addition, another valuable service is mail service or sometimes known as a business license address service. This allows the small business owner to use the physical location of the vo provider, (usually a local office space provider) as their own, complete with an assigned suite number, thereby giving the business owner a physical address. Mail will be received on behalf of the owner for pick up and or forwarding.
Finally, conference/meeting rooms and day office use or work stations are available when you lease a virtual office. All of these services are available as stand alones or as part of a virtual office package and are designed to create a presence, professional image and create a sense of trust between client and business owner. Well worth the small amount of money spent each month for so much in return.
