Is Virtual Office Space Right for My Business?
You may be wondering if a virtual office is right for your needs. You may be a solopreneur, or a business with just a handful of employees, all of whom work from their own homes remotely.
The above two scenarios lend themselves nicely to using a virtual office because your business doesn’t need a full, regular office but still could benefit from having a “real” mailing address, phone number, receptionist, mail delivery, and so on.
Read below for some other reasons your business might do well using virtual office space:
- A virtual office can save you a lot of money. If you’re just starting out, this can be a huge plus. If you plan to grow from one person to dozens, you can save the money you’d spend on a “real” office for several months so that when you do expand and need the space, you’ll have the capital saved for it.
- A virtual office, however, means you never really have to hire employees. Even if you do intend to grow, you can hire sub-contractors and save even more money. Your co-workers/sub-contractors can work across the street, across Albany, across the country, or across the Atlantic Ocean and your company can still have a great street address, live receptionists answering your phone, and so on.
- Leasing a virtual office means you can come into the office when you want to hold a meeting with nearby colleagues or prospects/clients. The services here at 90 State Street provide those who lease one of our virtual offices the ability to use one of our conference rooms, private offices, AV and phone equipment as needed, allowing them to look as professional, successful and real to prospects.
- If you work at home and every now and then find that you’re lonely and/or you’ve discovered that the fact that you’re always near your family can be a bit stifling at times, you can visit the co-work space here at 90 State Street as a member of our virtual office family. You can rent a co-work space, cubicle or even office for a day, an afternoon, for two weeks, or an entire month, whatever you need.
So if yours is a small business (and you intend to stay that way – or not) and/or if you have far-flung employees/subcontractors, a virtual office could be a great option for you.
