Spend Less and Make More. Why Small Businesses Love the Virtual Office
Office space is one of the biggest costs and commitments for any small business. So the question is do you really need it? And if you do, how much space do you actually need to operate? Real estate rentals are not cheap, and it’s a cost that comes with lengthy commitments too. Yet it’s possible to have access to modern, fully-equipped office space for much less than a traditional lease. This means you get a lot more bang for your buck. Our Office Evolution in Bergen County, NJ offers virtual office solutions that are a blessing for today’s independent professionals and small businesses. We’ll look more into this shortly.
Spend Money to Make Money
We’ve all heard the saying, ‘you have to spend money to make money.’ It’s true too, but the savvy entrepreneur or small business owner don’t spend any more than they have to. Nor do they waste money investing in things they don’t need at the time. To be successful is not so much a case of spending less as it is investing wisely. Many entrepreneurs and small business professionals don’t fail because their business idea is a bad one—they fail because they spent too much money, too fast, on the wrong things.
Once the independent professional, such as an attorney, broker, consultant, moves out of the home office and into a more professional space, it’s tempting to get some full or part-time staff members on board. Like the traditional office space, this can be a heavy commitment, especially early on. Perhaps freelancers, at least in the short term, can help to bring staffing costs right down. If you don’t need them, you don’t have to pay for their services—it’s as simple as that. If business is slow at a traditional office though, you still must pay any staff members regardless of whether they have any work to do or not.
A shortage of capital is the number one reason why so many small businesses and solo professionals fail to develop their operations. The logical response is to look at ways to reduce business costs, though cost cutting, per se, is not usually the answer. In other words, don’t cut out things that are helpful to growth. Instead, look for more creative and cost-effective ways to achieve the same things. This in turn can be a cost-cutting exercise without cutting back on business essentials.
Business on the Fly
In today’s dynamic world of doing business everything is so mobile. Anyone who wants to compete has to follow a similar model, at least in many sectors. Confined to a stuffy office with the same staff members is not ideal for a lot of entrepreneurs on the move. Today it’s all about adapting to the needs of the market. Things have never changed so much or so fast thanks, or not, to developments in modern technology. The world of small business is shifting and it’s shifting fast. As business moves and changes, flexible solutions to support you going forward are vital.
Virtual Office Solutions
Think of the perfect office with everything you could possibly need at your disposal. It should look something like this:
- ·An impressive business address you can use for your company
- Convenient location
- Ample and easy parking
- Front desk receptionist to greet clients, receive mail, etc.
- Receptionist to handle all incoming phone calls and help manage appointments on your calendar
- Private locking mailboxes for rent
- Professional coworking spaces
- State of the art meeting and conference rooms for rent
- Complimentary drinks bar
- Print and copy facilities
- Fast, reliable internet connection
- Private plug-n-play offices at your disposal as and when you need them or on a flexible month-to-month term
That’s quite a wish list right, and not something a new small business would normally have access to. But this is exactly what’s on offer at Office Evolution Hackensack. We provide memberships and one-time use options for non-members.
Compare these benefits of the virtual office to a long-term traditional lease:
- No long term commitments
- Minimal overhead costs (no rent, utility bills, phone bill, internet fee, etc)
- Only pay for what you use as and when you need it
- Increased productivity and sales because of the professional environment and support services
The Importance of Effective Communication
Time is money, everyone in business knows that. And the more time one spends on things that don’t make any money, the less money one makes. To spend less time answering the phone and more time building your business is a wise move. At Office Evolution we have the perfect solution. The live, US-based virtual receptionists can answer and filter all your calls so that you don’t have to. That means no more unnecessary distractions, missed calls or signal black spots for you to worry about.
The live virtual receptionist delivers on the following fronts:
- Screens all your calls in real time
- Answers all calls precisely how you want them answered
- Professional phone manner when announcing and transferring calls over to you
- Manage your calendar, such as make and confirm appointments
Smart Choices for Savvy Business
Using our coworking space means you’ll have more money and a more efficient business setup. You won’t have any heavy commitments with traditional office space, but you will have access to the perfect office solutions—with either a virtual office or permanent office. There’s no need to commit to an internet contract, furniture costs, phone service, and other overhead costs. You can have all your mail delivered to your new business address, sorted, and even forwarded on to another location on request. And you also have access to a professional receptionist if you need one. If you don’t want, or can’t afford fulltime staff, you can hire the services from the world’s growing pool of freelancers, but again, only when you need them.
It really is possible to spend less and get much more bang for your buck. The solution is to run your professional business without the expense of a traditional setup. Solo professionals and small businesses love the virtual office concept because it works in their favor, and it works well.
