A virtual office gives businesses a physical address and office-related services for a fee without providing actual dedicated office space. It is a cheaper and more flexible option compared to traditional office space, great for entrepreneurs, start-ups and small businesses alike. From increasing your businesses’ credibility, working remotely, no commuting and increased productivity to no long-term commitments and other office services, virtual offices offer many benefits for your business and is a great way to ‘test the water’.
Running a business from home? Here are our top 5 benefits of opting for a virtual business address in Exeter...
1. Make a great first impression
Unfortunately, we live in a world where people very quickly judge by first impressions and an address in a desirable location will make you ‘look good’ right from the word go. Avoid any problems of perception by giving anyone who sees your address the impression that you’ve got a great spot right in the beating heart of Exeter.
2. No commute time
No office, no commute. Think about it, the two or so hours every day that used to be spent getting ready for work and travelling to the office can now be spent working, resulting in increased productivity. It’s environmentally friendly, too - cutting out the commute decreases carbon dioxide emissions, allowing you to reduce your carbon footprint and help the environment. It also means there’s no sitting in traffic, waiting for buses, or squeezing onto crowded trains. You’ll use that time working on things that really matter.
3. Work from anywhere
A virtual office is ideal for those who want to work remotely, giving you the flexibility to work from anywhere, anytime. Nothing is tying you down.
4. No long term commitment
Most virtual offices offer flexible cancellations with no long-term rent contracts involved. You simply use and pay for your virtual office address for as long or as little as you need.
5. Access to meeting rooms when you need them
A virtual office is often more than just a place for you to direct your post or phonecalls. Take advantage of meeting rooms when you need them to carry out business-related activities. Entertain clients, suppliers and investors in a professional setting, making you business appear larger and more established, creating a great impression.
