Hide:

As a busy roofer and the owner of your own successful business, you may find that your hands are often too full to take care of scheduling appointments and fielding inquiries from potential customers as they arise.

Interior Decorator Uses a Virtual Office to Break Into New Territory

Hide:

Interior Decoration toolsAfter completing a design course, Renee set out to build her reputation as an interior decorator in Marietta, Georgia. Having operated for three years in her medium-sized city, she found that the market was just about saturated. With the economy on a downturn, fewer people were redoing their homes and fewer businesses were looking for a design consultant to help them with a revamp. With her own costs rising, Renee looked around for a way to revitalize her business.

Real Stories from Entrepreneurs

business woman standing with filesPia started leasing an office very soon after starting a business, without considering that her business might change. She suggests that new business owners plan carefully before leasing an office to avoid the problems that she faced.

“Office space is an important part of many businesses, but securing a good leasing contract is essential so that you don’t get stuck like I did. Long before you start researching locations and buildings, first objectively assess whether your business really needs one in the first place. Signing up for the services of a virtual office is an effective way to fulfill your need for telephone and fax messaging without getting stuck in a long term contract. That’s what happened to me.

How I Built a Statewide Network from My Tiny Business

Hide:

I started a small business about two years ago, working from my house. I had always planned to branch work for myself one day, but it wasn’t until my first son was born that I had an idea I felt passionate about. I started selling home-made, organic baby food, delivered to busy parents. Using my own recipes, I started promoting my business in a small way, using word of mouth and online marketing. I wasn’t too surprise to find many parents who wanted to be sure that their children were getting healthy, nutritious food.

Within a few months, I had more business than I could handle, but I weathered this tricky stage by training a few good employees to help with food preparation in my new industrial kitchen. I was still handling all the management and marketing on my own, answering client calls and scheduling appointments from my personal number.

It was around this time that someone suggested a virtual office, to give my company a more ‘business-like’ image. When I found out that Opus VO only charged $99 per month to handle all my calls, faxes and mail, I was sold. With my messages being taken and forwarded, I had more time to focus on my growing family and business. The ease of setting up a virtual office made me realize that I could expand to other cities as long as I set up a local kitchen. I spoke to some old college friends in my state and several were interested in running the kitchens. Soon, I had two new branches in different parts of the state. It was so easy to add new regional offices to my virtual office network. The original branch acts as the headquarters, and I can keep track of client and supplier calls no matter where I am. Sure, my business is still quite small, but I now have a network of clients and kitchens in three cities with two more regional offices planned for this year.

A Virtual Office Means You Never Have To Say You’re Sorry

Hide:

“Hold on, please.  My Daddy’s in the bathroom.  I’ll get him.”

Are there any worse words spoken to make a home business entrepreneur cringe? Not even with COVID-19 around, does this portray a very legitimate business.

But, let’s face it, if you work out of your home, everyday life can intervene in the most embarrassing ways.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are nearly 20 million home-based businesses in the U.S. and that estimate is conservative.  Depending on who is counting, the numbers range as high as 38 million.

You know why you decided to operate a home business: personal freedom, stress reduction, greater potential, increased productivity, and more time for the family.

The disadvantages, however, include having your home address on your business cards, falling behind on tasks, embarrassing moments like above, and, most importantly, your clients perceiving you as less professional than a competitor with a rented office space.

Having a virtual office solves all these problems and others effortlessly and affordably.

A virtual office provides an impressive corporate address in an established area, a company phone and fax number, voicemail which can be converted to email , shipping and mailing services, and, especially, highly-trained, live receptionists presenting a professional image to your clients.

No more apologies or embarrassing moments!  You may be working in your jeans or even a bathrobe, but with a virtual office, your clients will be confidant they’re dealing with the polished professional you know you are.
