Top 5 Reasons To Have a Virtual Office
By Nathan Strum
1. Cost Savings
A virtual office will save a business thousands of dollars. The cost savings is virtually unlimited depending on what needs your business has.
- Office Space: Office space with a virtual office is paid for by the hour. This gives your company the advantage of only paying for the space as you need it, when you need it. When you need to meet a client at your office, a day office can be reserved by the hour. But during the times you are working from home, or when you just don’t need an office like at 2 o’clock in the morning, you are not paying for space.
- Staff: Your virtual office comes with front desk staff to greet your clients, accept your packages and deliveries, and represent your company. You also have a team of 5 dedicated receptionists to answer your calls as a hired receptionist would in your company. When it comes to staffing, the cost savings is staggering.
2. Professional Image
Your image can be the difference between making a sale and not making a sale. And sales can be the difference between success and failure. When you use a virtual office location as your business address, to the outside world you have a full-time professional office building. If and when your clients or vendors or business associates lookup your office address on the internet they see a real, physical office building with real office space being leased. The virtual office locations are located inside executive office suites where traditional offices are leased. You will benefit from this professional setting.
A virtual office can accommodate the needs of your growing business. The costs associated with virtual offices are based on your usage. Meaning your cost is scalable and fluctuates based on your company’s needs.
4. Commitment Time
A virtual office is on a 6 month or 1 year term. This is a far cry from the 5 – 10 year commitment that comes with traditional office space.
Many small businesses are started and run from an entrepreneurs home. In this case using your home address for you business address can be a big security and privacy risk.
