Whether you’re a salesman on the road, a traveling consultant, or run another type of mobile business, you know the challenges of staying in touch with your clients, building your business and maintaining your sanity! Even with the wide variety of communication options available, it can still be a challenge to hold it all together. With a virtual office, you can effectively and efficiently grow your business from the road.
Getting Phone Calls on the Road
When you’re on the road long-term, getting phone calls reliably can be tricky. You could lose reception while you’re traveling, or not be able to get calls at all. To combat this problem, many travelling business owners rely on a virtual office with live answering services. A reputable Virtual Office provider uses receptionists to take business calls in a professional manner and then forwards the callers to the individual business owners that contract with them. With this service, clients know that they can reliably reach you with one static phone number no matter where you are. And if for some reason they can’t reach you, they have the reassurance that you are a reputable business because they’ve reached a real live person.
Prestigious Address with Convenient Mail Collection
While being used less and less these days, “Snail Mail” is still something one must consider when working mobile. An important part of projecting a strong business image, even while you’re on the road, is having a recognizable business district address. With a virtual office that includes a virtual mail address, your mail is handled on your behalf and forwarded at your request. So while you’re on the go, you can rest assured that your mail is handled by “your” professional staff.
Doing Business in Town
When you are on the road often, the time that you spend in your own city may be infrequent. However, there may be times that you want to meet with new and existing clients in a professional environment. With a virtual office available whenever it’s needed, you can meet with clients and let them know that you run a business with a real location. The shared office space gives you the room needed for large meetings or a quick conference with a single client. It gives you a quiet place to meet, and allows you to meet in the same place as your business address.
Traveling and the Touchdown Office
Having a touchdown office is the perfect solution for business owners who are on the road much of the time. It doesn’t require renting out an entire office that will just sit empty throughout most of the year. It doesn’t force you to hire employees who sit idle during the time you are away. Instead, you can utilize the office’s resources only when you need them. The physical space is there for you when you’re in town and in need of an office environment.
With a virtual space that serves as a permanent base of operations for your communications, you can live life on the road without worrying that it’s hurting your business. You can also save the expense of hiring a full-time staff that only works part-time hours. You save money, stay in communication, and keep a professional image for your business no matter where your travels take you. It’s the best of both business worlds.
