If there is anything to learn from recent world events, it is that adaptability is a necessity. Changing work environment needs have led the shift from traditional business operations to more efficient ones.
The virtual office is a great example of this. Overly convenient for startups and small businesses, virtual offices give your business a professional appearance without a lot of the previously attached overhead.
What is a Virtual Office?
A virtual office is essentially a permanent business address for receiving physical mail and/or packages. It is a mailbox service that provides a professional mailing address for your business for a monthly fee. The individual mailbox comes with a key and gives you access to the workplace’s community.
Why You Need a Virtual Mailbox
Small businesses and entrepreneurs have a lot to gain from getting virtual mailbox services. Here are 5 reasons why you should opt in:
Marketing & Google Verification Purposes
There is a prestige associated with businesses that have a permanent address. The perception of your business goes up once clients see your private suite number and are more likely to trust you.
In addition to positive perception by clients, another marketing strategy element is getting your business verified for listing on Google Maps and Google My Business. For online businesses without a physical presence, a virtual mailbox will allow you to receive the postcard that Google sends for address verification.
Flexibility with a Fixed Address
As a digital nomad, the assurance that you will have one address for your business is assuring. Even if your business involves a lot of travel, your address remains the same and all your mail can be handled on location. If you are working from home, you can move to a new location without having to change the details of your business.
Privacy & Security
Virtual Offices offer privacy and security on 2 fronts. First, providers of the service can assure you that your mail is kept private and secure. Secondly, if you do not have a physical address and are working from home, you get to avoid adding your private address to your business both for security and privacy reasons.
Start Your Business Right Away
It is much, much faster to get your business started with a virtual mailbox. Signing up for a traditional P.O. box requires filling out a lot of paperwork, time you may not exactly have. A virtual address is usable as soon as you sign up for the service.
Virtual Mailboxes are Convenient
With some virtual offices, you can get a notification when mail arrives in your mailbox. A simple text or email with a photo of your mail can be sent to you, oftentimes for an additional fee. Depending on the nature of your business, you may get a lot of mail and virtual mailboxes help streamline your mail management. You get more time to focus on other operational matters for your startup or small business.
