A Virtual Office allows small and medium businesses to benefit from all the advantages of a prestigious address, landline phone numbers and team support without committing to dedicated office space.
Office expenses are minimized while the business retains the impression of a traditional high cost office and infrastructure. Professionals can work from home, their clients, or suburban offices, and still have the reputation of benefits that only a city centre address can bring. Research shows that customers expect to see an address on marketing materials, and a home or post office address just doesn't cut it.
Many entrepreneurs and independent professionals make the mistake of relying on a mobile number for their contacts to call. Even today, most callers will not leave a message on a voicemail and won't call back if the number is busy. A Virtual Office can include a landline number, answered by a real person, not a machine, who can take a message or forward the call as required.
Potential customers usually will only consider using partners based in the same city as them - putting flexible and mobile suppliers from other cities at a disadvantage. A Virtual Office can allow nimble businesses to extend their market into other cities at a minimal expense.
