5 Ways to Make Your Business Look Bigger & More Professional with a Virtual Office
It’s a simple concept, but a virtual office business address, which can include mail forwarding, is a great way to make a solo professional or small company look bigger and more successful. Whether we like it or not, impressions do matter—either fancied or real. There’s nothing deceiving about this, it’s just good business sense—a way to help you compete and stand out. Office Evolution business centers, such as its coworking space in Hackensack in the heart of Bergen County, NJ, offers a professional mailing address and mail forwarding. The address is an impressive office building—and you can meet your clients there too, if you wish. We’ll get into why this is an invaluable service shortly. The two most obvious benefits are:
1. A solution to the commercial business address problem
2. Keeping up with the competition
With an upturn in business comes an increase in the mail you receive. Despite the digital era, there’s still a lot of paper involvement in today’s work. For example, there are checks to write, paying bills, sending mail, and receiving packages, etc. The more successful you and your business operations become, the more mail you’ll have to deal with.
A PO Box is not a serious solution, not least because it looks unprofessional and untrustworthy. Major delivery companies won’t deliver to a PO Box address either, and nor can it be used on official business accounts as the company’s address. And the home address is also far from ideal. After all, do you want every Tom, Dick and Harry knowing where you live? There’s also the problem of business post getting lost among the regular mail. Moreover, if you advertise online with services like Google AdWords, you do need to use a local commercial address to list a local business.
The Business Address Predicament
As you can see, you do need a business address, but not any old address will do, not if you want to look the part. In most cases, the home address or a PO Box will restrict your potential. It’s true that a lot of smaller, mobile-type businesses start life at the personal residence. But it’s never too long before they outgrow the home office. The problem here is that even when the home office is no longer suitable, a proper office rental eats into the budget. Investing in a traditional office lease in a prime New Jersey location is certainly a costly commitment. It may not even suit your operational needs.
Today, the more affordable and flexible virtual office solutions are proving to be the best options for many small businesses, entrepreneurs, and solo professionals. The virtual office business address with mail forwarding is one of these solutions. We’ll look into the full range of these benefits shortly.
Keeping Up with the Competition
It’s a competitive world out there, so one must compete in order to survive and thrive. Quite often in business, it’s the little things that can make the biggest differences. Okay, so a professional business address in a central location may play no direct part in how good you are, or the quality of your products and/or services. But when it comes to looking serious and professional, your address is part of that all-important first impression.
Here are five ways on how a virtual office business address with mail forwarding can move you and your company to new levels:
- Reputation and image
- Increased online presence
- Security & privacy
#1 Reputation and Image
With an Office Evolution virtual office professional business address with a mailbox for rent in Bergen County, NJ, you look more professional right away. The best thing of all is that you’ve got the address but without the heavy price tag. You can choose other solutions for your business needs from our Hackensack, New Jersey coworking center too. You can tailor these to match your specific needs as and when you need them, including meeting rooms on-demand. Read our other articles on how coworking spaces and virtual office solutions can help. We cover all the angles, and offer solutions for solo professionals, entrepreneurs and small businesses operating in Bergen County.
#2 Reliability & Trust
We’ve already touched on how the home address and PO Box can make you appear amateurish and small. Once you have a proper address in a good central location at an impressive building, you look bigger and more professional without doing a thing. The address shows clients and prospects you’re open for business, and that they can count on you. It’s a fact—the physical street address alone earns you trust and respect. In short, a professional commercial business address helps to make you look like a serious and reliable contender.
#3 Increased Online Presence
Having an online presence these days is essential. Future clients often find businesses on the internet, usually in the local search results. The moment you have that professional company address, you can then start to publish your business in important places like Google Business Pages, Google Maps, and many directories. A lot of this is free advertising as you will show up on popular Search Engine Results Pages, or SERPS. You can also get a presence on social media and other quality platforms that allow you to show your services, usually free of charge.
Here’s a shortlist of the most popular directories to add your business name and address:
- BBB (Better Business Bureau)
- Angie’s List
- And much more!
Adding business details to sites like the ones above is quick and simple. It’s something that allows others to find you using various business-related search terms. If you didn’t have a physical street business address with a zip code, a lot of this would not be possible. If you operate in and around the New Jersey area, we can help. Consider using our Hackensack central business address and mail forwarding service for your company needs.
Picture this if you will. Let’s assume your home address has also doubled as your business address for some years. And let’s also assume that one day you pack up and move house or apartment. All of a sudden there is disruption to your business, both for you and your clients. This is something that could even have a negative effect on your bottom line, at least in the short to midterm. With an Office Evolution business mail address and mail forwarding service, none of this matters. You can move as often as you like—even out of the area or state, but your business address stays right where it is. This may seem like a minor detail, but it’s an important one that will serve you well.
#5 Security and Privacy
Aside from the unprofessional appearance of a home address there are the security and privacy issues. Unless your business is a shop that doubles as a home, do you really want strangers arriving at your doorstep? We also live in a digital world, where there’s persistent paranoia. We’re concerned that someone is trying to gain access to private information or intercept our data. With a professional business mailing address in Hackensack, NJ as a virtual office, you can relax. Your information and post is safe and secure, handled only by our Business Center Manager, and you have your own locked mailbox. And, even though you have a mailbox, your actual address is just the suite number.
