5 Virtual Office Benefits for Export Start-ups

Are you searching for ways to give your start up a professional corporate image?  Are you not sure how to go about this without spending a fortune?

Fortunately, a business virtual office can give you a corporate feel without needing to buy or lease physical office space.

Instead of renting office space, buying fax and phone system, furniture and office equipment as well as hiring a receptionist, a virtual office is basically a turnkey business office.

A company with its own office and furnishings, dedicated business line and live phone support does help to legitimize a business.

However, the regularly monthly lease payments and other costs that are associated with this type of setup is far too expensive for most start-ups to be able to afford.  On the other hand, a business virtual office can provide you with all the trappings of an established business operation without having the ongoing costs and large price tag allowing you to work from anywhere.

A business virtual office such as UK business Office Answers offers a brilliant and affordable solution to enable even businesses with small budgets to be able to operate like major corporations do.

For just a few dollars a day you will get all of the main components that a serious business has, including dedicated fax line, personalized voice mail, business mailing address, live assistant for addressing inbound telephone calls, dedicated business line and much more.  It is a great option for entrepreneurs and start-ups looking to keep their operation costs down while still be able to develop a professional corporate image.

It can also help when trying to establish business credit.  A business virtual address can be used for the company’s mailing address instead of a home address.

The following are 5 benefits that a virtual office can provide to a business:

Have a local dedicated telephone number
Having a recognized local area code for your business phone number can make it much easier for your business to acquire new local customers.  Having a local phone number appears more trustworthy and personalized for local consumers versus having an area code that is unrecognizable.

Have a professional live receptionist
Having a live professional individuals answering incoming phone calls for your business is another component that will speak volumes about how your business operates.
