The Benefits of Virtual Office Space for Small Businesses
Small businesses can experience the look and feel of being a larger business without the stress, hassle or overhead all due to virtual office services. There are so many benefits virtual offices provide small businesses, and the team of Office Suite Strategies agrees. This article outlines some key points why small businesses should consider virtual office services.
Virtual offices are becoming an increasingly popular decision for small business owners who want to enjoy the luxuries of a traditional office space, while still having the flexibility to enjoy work on their own terms. With a virtual office, you have the ability to work anytime anywhere and still take full advantage of the support, technology, and meeting space that a regular office provides.
Professional Business Address Provided
If you’ve ever hesitated at the idea of having to put your home address on your website or cringed at the thought of someone checking you out on Google only to discover your location is in a residential neighborhood, a virtual office has a major benefit to you. With a virtual office you are provided a professional business address at well-known buildings in your community. The best part? You don’t even have to rent office space at the building. The virtual office service forwards all mail sent to this address to the client. This is an essential advantage with Google; the service is not a fan of P.O. Boxes or home addresses linked to a business.
No Commute Time to the Office
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the average travel time to work in the US is 25.4 minutes. Depending on your location, that number can be considerably higher and significantly more stressful. Now you don’t have to spend all that extra time getting ready for work and then sitting in traffic. Since there hasn’t quite been a way invented to combine these two activities into one yet, it all feels like such a huge waste of time. That one, two or more hours could be spent working, growing your business and actually BEING PRODUCTIVE. When you’re ready to grow your team, an additional bonus is that you can now hire employees anywhere in the US without having to relocate them or be overly concerned with their personal commute and how it will affect their work/life balance.
Reception and Communication Services
As many of us know, a quality reception service can really help elevate the perception of your business. Having someone who handles phone calls professionally adds clout and authenticity to the office experience. Adding a mailbox number that doesn’t start with P.O., as well as having items and mail delivered to a professional business address can only help to increase the feeling of security for your clients that they are doing business with an established and well developed business.
The virtual office service can provide live phone receptionists, voice mail and other communications options. Your office can even have its own email address and fax number for these communications and to increase the professional image of your business.The front desk staff will also receive and sign for any parcels sent to the business address. The service then arranges for delivery of the parcel to the client. It may also be possible to arrange for on-site notaries and witnesses.
