Early in your business’s development, you may operate out of your home or on the road. When most of your day involves seeing clients or handling book work in your home office, a prestigious location may not seem unimportant. However, working from home can come across as unprofessional. Virtual office services can be perfect for presenting your best face.
The Right Address
Working from home carries many benefits, including being less capital intensive. However, many strategic partners consider businesses where the owner works from home to be less professional. Having an office space implies a level of commitment that working from home does not. Virtual office services can help by allowing you to use a street address and suite number in your correspondence. This can help a smaller operation to put forth the image of a larger and more established company, which allows you to follow the old maxim, “fake it until you make it.”
There will be times when you will be too busy to answer your phone, and nobody wants to leave a voicemail. Speaking to an actual person who will assure the caller that their call is important can help elevate your image. The implication is that if you have an assistant, you must be at least somewhat important. This improvement to your image helps your company to be taken more seriously.
You may currently be in a state where most of your meetings happen at your client’s location, or virtually through a service such as Skype or Hangout. However, there will be times when a client wants to meet in your location, or where there is nowhere else convenient to meet. With a virtual office, you can arrange to use a conference room on the occasions when you need it, but without the constant overhead of leasing the space continually.
Perhaps you need to get away from your home office, or you need a satellite location between meetings in town. Having a dedicated office for such sporadic instances as these would be unnecessary. Virtual office services can allow you to use a desk periodically when your home office is unavailable, or when going all the way home would be inconvenient.
