The virtual office is a revolutionary concept that has elevated small businesses throughout the 21st century. The ability for a business to have a respectable presence in a community without the insane overhead has opened windows that were previously closed. Unfortunately, all virtual offices are not created equal. Here’s some things to look for when choosing the right virtual office for your business.
- Location, Location, Location
Where do you want to have your next meeting? Probably not in the middle of nowhere. Consider your own preferences when trying to imagine what will impress your future clients the most. Remember, the more reputable the business district is, the more reputable it makes your business.
Sure, giant skyscrapers are pretty but where’s the parking? Confusing directions, one-way streets, and the amount of time it takes to get from your car to the 30th floor conference room. Your clients are busy and you don’t want them to feel like meeting you is a chore. You want your clients to see your business address and breathe a sigh of relief.
A lot of people get a virtual office in a nice area only to find out that the place is less than welcoming. The staff isn’t helpful and couldn’t care less about their business. Take a tour before signing up to make sure it’s the real deal. You won’t regret it!
- Read the fine print
A common business practice in the shared office industry is the dreaded automatic renewal. People sign-up for a 12-month agreement and the 10-month later they’ve been extended for another 12-months because they didn’t give 60-days notice. They’re rate goes through the roof too! It’s unfair but not uncommon. One of things a virtual office should provide is flexibility.
