Are you considering getting an office space for your Bay Area business? If you have spent any time researching what is available in the area then you know that it will be expensive to lease a spot – even a small one. Before you go and sign a lease – and potentially stretch your finances too thin – think about the option of getting a virtual office for your Bay Area business. There are some real benefits that come with having a virtual office. Asking yourself a few basic questions about your business will help you determine if a virtual office is the right choice for you.
Do you need a physical space to conduct business?
The first question to ask as you consider a virtual office is about your actual needs. Do you need a physical office space in order to conduct business? Many businesses can be run remotely with an internet connection and a phone. If having people in the same physical space as you is not an essential part of running your business, then you should consider getting a virtual office instead of a physical space.
Do you want a physical address to be associated with your business?
A remote business allows you to work from any location you choose. However, it is important to have a home base for your business so people can find you online. This helps with SEO by helping your business show up when potential customers search for a business like yours in the Bay Area. In addition, there are regulations that require you to include a physical mailing address in the promotional emails that you send. A virtual office can provide you with a physical address for your business without requiring you to go out and rent a physical space. Your business will look more professional online and show up more readily when people are doing local searches. Most businesses need to have some type of physical address associated with their company – a virtual office can help with that.
Are you looking for ways to keep overhead costs low?
If you are looking for ways to keep overhead costs low, a virtual office can help. A commercial lease will cost you thousands of dollars per year and typically locks you in for multiple years. You can get set up with a virtual office from 580 Executive Center for less than one hundred dollars per month and no long-term commitment. You can get benefits like phone and mailing services from a high-quality virtual office without incurring the high costs associated with a physical space.
