You’re a home-based business for a reason – you might be dipping your toe in a new industry, trying to save money or experimenting with working from home. Whatever the reason, using a virtual office can be a savvy way of instantly professionalising your business in a cost-effective way.
Virtual offices offer you certain benefits and facilities for a fraction of the price you’d pay to rent out your own full office space. And your clients won’t be able to tell the difference with the use of a virtual office address, call handling service and mail forwarding.
So what are some of the other benefits?
A Professional Location
Having a professional, office-based address that you can use for all of your correspondence with potential clients can help to give your business a great first impression. A commercial address gives your business more authority, instead of a suburban location – and remember, clients can find this out when they search for your business on Google Maps.
Something as superficial as your address could be the difference between clients picking your business over another and listing a business address allows you to take advantage of Local Google Search.
When you’re just starting out with a new business, it can be overwhelming trying to build it on your own. Hyde Park House can give you an extra few hands with secretarial services, mail forwarding and a professional telephone answering service.
It’s up to you as to which facilities you want to use, as the Virtual Office concept is so flexible and can easily work around your specific business needs.
Being able to rely on a friendly, professional team to help you out in the early stages of your start-up can be invaluable.
Maintain your Privacy
You might not want your home’s details splashed all over the internet when you’re listing your business on resources like free local online business directories. Being able to maintain a sense of privacy is important and can be achieved with a Virtual Office.
Having a local presence and using a professional address for things like invoicing allows you to keep your personal and professional life separate. This can be a really good idea, especially taking your area of expertise into account and it’s important to ask yourself whether you want strangers knowing your home address.
