Ok, so maybe you’ve just started your business and you’re not quite ready for the big corner office with the big desk and wall of filing cabinets quite yet! Or, maybe you’ve been in business for a while, but your comfortable working from home and meeting existing and prospective clients in other meeting facilities, coffee shops and restaurants. Either way, you still need an address, right? Most likely a registered address where you can receive business mail and use on any printed or online material you may use to promote your business.
Perhaps you thought your only option was to set up a PO Box and you are not even aware what a Virtual Office is and how it can benefit your business. Sure, a PO Box might seem like the easiest and cheapest option, but is being perceived as cheap really the best way to promote your business?
First, let’s discuss what exactly a Virtual Office is.
In a nutshell, a Virtual Office will give you a physical address along with other office-related services, such as meeting space, administrative support, and business support services, all without the overhead of an office lease.
A reputable provider will come complete with the staff, supplies and the conveniences of any other office. A reputable provider will provide you with a business address that’s professional and will show your company as being a place where customers will be able to visit and communicate with you.
Sometimes, the idea of being registered with a PO Box can leave customers feeling unsure about the professionalism of your business. Unfortunately, the perception is that it’s cheap, shady and leaves customers wondering WHY you only have a PO Box.
You may only need a physical address right now and may think it’s unnecessary to have access to all the amenities a Virtual Office can provide. However, if your business is successful, and growth is continuous, those needs may change. What if an out of town customer requests a last-minute face to face meeting, and you want somewhere a little more professional than the corner coffee shop? One of those professional meeting rooms your Virtual Office provider gives you access to might come in handy right about now! Having the ability to access so many great additional services gives you the ability to allow your customers to come and scope out your business.
With a Virtual Office, even if it’s just mail handling you require, you get the personal touch your business deserves. Even smaller services now offer email and text notification to tell you when you’ve got mail, so there’s no need to check your mailbox everyday.
