Whilst virtual office addresses have existed for a while, their usage is on the rise as a go-to solution for businesses looking to reduce operating expenses and expand into other markets, perhaps thanks to the fact that rapid improvements in technology are allowing companies to do away with a physical location.
There are many reasons to opt for a virtual business address, here are just a few:
If you’re a plumber you want to be found online, whenever anyone (in your service area) searches ‘Plumber near me’, having a central address will help with this. For example, a plumber living in the town Wymondham is likely to service the city of Norwich (11 miles away) but without a Norwich address may not as high up the search rankings as a plumber living in Norwich even if they state on their website that they service that area.
Using a virtual address as part of your online marketing strategy can help you to both increase your visibility in a certain area and expand into new markets.
Having a commercial (virtual) address, that you can utilise online (on Social Media, your website, directory listings), with clients, suppliers and official agencies allows you to keep your personal and work lives separate.
First Impressions Count
A professional business address, along with a local phone number and the ability to rent meeting spaces all offer a boost to your credibility as a business, reassuring prospective clients that you are a serious, professional operation.
The lack of a long-term rental contract and utility payments will ease cash flow for small businesses and start-ups making it easier to get started whilst reducing financial risk. It also allows businesses to use the capital to fund other income-generating activities instead of tying it up in liabilities, making it easier to scale your business and expand into new markets.
Lower overheads allow you to benefit from a central address without the price tag!
Companies that offer virtual office address are often able to offer additional services to support you in your business venture – such as mail handling, telephone answering and email and diary management.
You will also often have the option to utilise physical meeting rooms at the same location where you receive your mail.
In brief, a virtual address provides an affordable option for all types of businesses. They open up new markets, offering privacy, credibility, flexibility, and support, allowing you to focus on what you do best.
