You’ve decided to start your own business but you’re unsure as to what to do next. Being a business start-up has many stresses associated with it. Don’t let your business’ location be one of them. Working from home or your local coffee shop is economical but is it building the best professional image for you and your business? Acquiring an office in the city centre is probably too expensive at this early point in the start-up process. The perfect next stage is a Virtual Office, read about how to get one in 5 easy steps:
1. Decide your budget
If you’re working from home you may have zero outgoings for your business’ location. Do the calculations and work out how much you can spare per month for this service. If you can pay the entire yearly cost up front you may be able to save even more, so find out if that is an option. Remember the benefits of acquiring a Virtual Office outweigh the cost. It will give your organisation a prestigious business address, cost less than a physical office, improve your professional image, give you your own reception team plus a lot more!
2. Choose your location
Location, location, location! It is very important to make this decision early in the process. Deciding where your business will be based depends on a few factors. Where are you based? Who are your customers? Where are they based? What location will attract/impress your potential customers? These are all points to be taken into consideration before committing to one area. Perhaps you already have one location but want to appear to have multiple, then it’s best to evaluate which area would be most profitable to your business.
3. Choose your package
Virtual Office providers will have more than one package to suit a range of businesses with a variety of needs. Read through what each package can offer your business and remember to stay within your budget. As your business grows you can always upgrade to a higher package.
