Working from home sounds like a dream, but your home is not the ideal place to meet clients. Even if you are a neat freak, meeting clients at your home does not make a very professional impression. When dealing with customers and colleagues, it is best to separate your business from your home life. In an ideal world, you would not have to take business calls while your kids have a sing-along in the back seat. Renting an office is beyond the budget of many business owners, but renting virtual office space is a convenient and affordable solution.
More Than Just a Business Address
If all you need is a reasonably safe place to get your business mail delivered, then a P.O. Box will do. A virtual office is safer and more professional, though. It has a front desk staffed with professional receptionists. They will receive your mail and keep it for you, as well as sign for packages delivered to your business. They will also answer phone calls for your company and transfer them to your cell phone or take messages.
A Virtual Office Is a Physical Space
A virtual office is a suite in a high-end office building. Most of the time, the only people working there are the receptionists employed by the virtual office company. Behind the front desk, though, there are executive conference rooms available by the hour or the day. Obviously, paying full-time rent on such rooms would be very expensive. When you are a virtual office client, though, you can reserve the rooms for days when you need them.
Don’t pay for a whole office when you only need an address, a phone number, and receptionist services. A virtual office from Global Business Centers is a much more affordable solution.
