Rockefeller Group Business Centers Staff Insights: 3 “Do’s” of Running Your Virtual Office by David Jakubowski
So you are considering opening a remote office via virtual office? If you are first timer setting up a virtual office, you may be overwhelmed by the options out there, and you may be wondering what you should focus when deciding on your virtual office. Read below for some recommendations on things to consider for your virtual office by Rockefeller Group Business Center’s staff, David Jakubowski.
1. Be choosy with the address
Pick an address that properly represents your business. Your virtual office business address can do more than just a mailing address. It is a tool for branding your business and shaping people’s perceptions about your business. Do pick an address that is in alignment with what your business is about.
2. Use services fully
Utilize the services that the virtual office provider offers, such as an office for the day, mail forwarding, administrative assistance, and so on. The day office is a great way to represent your office when you have a client meeting for a day, as it will protect your business’s image, while running your remote business efficiently.
3. Check Technical infrastructure and Capabilities
Pick a virtual office provider that has a strong technological infrastructure so you are up to date to handle any technological devices and equipment. Your virtual office provider should be able to provide all phone services that you would expect in a physical office, and put them right into your home office, so you can productively run your business.
