From fully equipped, plug-n-play office spaces to business addresses with a mailbox and mail forwarding; from virtual receptionists to conference and meeting rooms available by the hour—it's all here. In this piece, we focus on the real benefits that a professional, physical business address has on your business.
Making a Good First Impression
Most people think about the way they look and present themselves to others, especially when it comes to their business. Although this is crucial, first impressions go back further than that, and deeper. Let's say you have an attractive and informative website and that a potential client is impressed with what they see, so they decide to contact you. Once they get to your contact details there are a couple of things that immediately put them off. They see a free, non-business email address and a home address or PO Box number.
Even if you're business operations are 100% legit and professional, your free email and missing business address look dodgy. After all, scammers often hide behind free emails and PO Box numbers, so you can't blame people for being weary. If there's no photo of you on your 'About Us' page, that further reinforces doubt. These are all small things that can have a huge impact on your business image and reputation.
Solutions to the Business Address Problem
If you operate from home, that doesn’t mean you have to use the home address for your business. There are security and privacy issues, and the PO Box-style address looks untrustworthy to many. Aside from that, some delivery services will not deliver to PO boxes. Plus, neither a PO box nor a home address can be used for many online marketing activities, like a Google My Business page or AdWords online ads. One solution to this problem is to use a professional, physical business address at Office Evolution.
Here's a rundown of the key benefits of a virtual office commercial address:
It's a simple and affordable way to put your business firmly on the virtual map
Renting a professional mailing address gives your business a professional image
Your business address can show up on online searches like Google Maps
A photo of our impressive building could also show up next to your physical business address
All your confidential business-related mail is safely locked behind a steel mailbox
All business correspondence is kept separate from personal mail
A professional address enhances marketing material like business cards, fliers, and ads, etc.
A professional address in a prime central location also enhances your credibility
It boosts your 'digital footprint' with Google My Business, Yelp, and more
None of these things are going to work with a residential address or a PO Box. With a professional business address, your address shows as the suite number—not a box number—so it looks totally professional. It's a physical address in a good location, in an impressive building. Even if you move home, your professional address stays the same, which is one less hassle to worry about.
More than Just a Business Address
If all you want is a professional business address, that's fine, but it's not all there is. You have full access to the actual building too. If you want a shared desk with high-speed internet and complimentary beverages, we've got you covered. If you want a more personal office space, you've got that too. There's even meeting rooms and conference rooms to rent from as short as 15 minutes to weeks. In other words, your business address is more than just an address with a mailbox. It's also a fully functional shared office coworking center with an impressive array of services to boot. So apart from the impressive address and mailbox service, you also have professional office space that you can rent to meet with your clients. The great thing about this business model is that you only pay for what you need when you want it.
Impress Your Clients and Prospects
Perhaps your line of business means you meet people online more so than in the bricks and mortar world. As useful as this is, there's nothing quite as productive as face-to-face meetings, shaking hands, and forming meaningful relationships in the real world. Now you can impress clients and prospects by inviting them to your new, impressive business location, in a meeting space that fits the purpose.
Already you have ticked a lot of boxes with your professional address, its central location with easy parking, and the impressive building. That's a great way to make that all-important first impression. Remember, aside from shared office spaces, you also have access to private offices, conference rooms, and staffed reception. All these things and more reinforce your credibility and professional image in your field of business.
