If you’re running a small business as a freelancer or solopreneur, it’s most likely from your dining room table. Or maybe it’s a side hustle to your 9-5 job? it’s likely you’ve heard the chatter and benefits of a Virtual Office.
Picture this, behind the scenes it’s all blood, sweat (and lets face it) tears. Presenting your brand to your customers, establishing credibility and professionalism will all be high on your to-do list. This is where a Virtual Office comes in.
The benefits to your business are endless, and tangible. Here we’ve listed the top 5 (in no particular order) to help paint the picture for you.
Professional Reception Services
Virtual Office packages provide Professional Reception Services by providing you with a unique local phone number, and managing all your incoming calls, taking messages and notifying you. It’s an excellent way to present your business professionally and could give you the edge over your competitors. By giving you more time to work on what you need to, rather than answering endless phone calls!
Multiple Uses For The Address
A Virtual Office address can be used on your email signature, for your marketing collateral, as your postal address, and for all your mail forwarding. The main benefit of this is keeping your home address private, and stopping any unwanted clients rocking up at your front door! A Virtual Office also allow you to have a business presence in multiple cities without actually living there.
You Can Work From Anywhere
Having a Virtual Office means you can work from anywhere (home, while on holiday, in the car at school pick up) and if you have a small team, they can too. Most Virtual Office spaces will also have the option of a coworking space and meeting room, board room and video conferencing hire so when you need to work from an office for the day or conduct meetings you can. It’s also handy if you are speaking with clients/customers/team members across time zones as these locations are open and available 24/7 providing so much flexibility to fit in with your specific business needs.
When you use a Virtual Office space you are cutting out valuable time getting to and from the office each day. This means you can claw back precious time for a more balanced work/life structure and focus on things that matter like exercise, family and mental health.
It Makes Financial Sense
A tailored (and flexible) monthly plan allows you to have an “office” on prime real estate without all the extra cost and pressure on your bottom line. For example: no inflexible long term lease agreements, no cleaning and maintenance costs along with no technology overheads. It is all there under the one roof, and its tax deductible!
Virtual Office memberships are becoming more and more popular as the way we work is continually evolving. At Studio 42 we have a variety of packages that can be tailored to take your business to the next level. To book a tour or speak to the team please contact us here.
