If you are a small business owner or have an enterprise that just doesn’t need full-time, dedicated Washington DC office space, then using a virtual environment only when you require it is the ideal solution. This is a solution that saves you a lot of money – and allows you to save face when you need a professional place to meet clients.
Take a look at the top 10 reasons many business owners opt for virtual office space.
1. Professional Address
Nothing says “home office” more than a mailing address in a residential area of town. But leasing office space in the middle of DC’s commerce district is cost prohibitive. The solution? Virtual office space!
2. Constant Contact
You can’t always be available to take phone calls or schedule appointments… But your virtual receptionist can! No, she’s not a computer, she’s a real live person who will answer the phone, forward your messages, and keep your schedule. It will appear as if you have a dedicated office staffed with professionals – even though you’re working from home!
3. Meeting Space
Unless you have a boardroom in your office, scheduling a meeting with clients or shareholders requires you to lease meeting space at a hotel or conference center. Not only is this expensive, you have to plan well in advance of your event. Your virtual Washington DC office space includes a well-appointed meeting room sure to impress anyone.
4 Virtual Club Business Lounge
Need a comfortable space with high speed internet access and a phone? Simply step into our Virtual Club Business Lounge and settle in for a productive hour – or day – of work without interruption.
5. Space for Your Clients or a One-Time Rental
One of the best things about virtual office space is that it’s scalable. Whether you need a professional office for an hour, a day, or a week, you’ll be welcomed and easily accommodated. Perhaps you have an important client coming to town who requires an office for a short time. Your virtual DC office space comes to the rescue!
6. Easily Outsource Project Details
Entrepreneurs are great at multi-tasking and developing a wide variety of skills. But what about when you need a bit of help? Your virtual office comes complete with a cadre of business professionals who can design a website, notarize a document, write a newsletter, and so much more. Where else could you find such a wide array of talent under one roof without having to personally pay their salaries?
7. No Maintenance or Repairs
If you own a home, you know that when something breaks down or quits working, it’s your responsibility to fix it. Not so in your virtual office! Report a problem, then sit back and let the facility manager handle the problem.
8. No Deposits on the Space
Washington DC office space is in high demand. If you want to lease your own private space, you’re going to pay dearly for it in the form of a hefty deposit and many times, several months’ rent paid in advance. The inexpensive route is opting for a virtual office.
9. More Savings: No Overhead
Another budget-breaker for the small business owner is the overhead costs. Electricity, water, landscaping fees – all of these and more add expense to your monthly office allocation. With virtual office space, you always pay the same amount, making it very budget-friendly.
10. Office Equipment
There’s no need to allocate your capital to buy office machines – they’re all there at your virtual office. Need to fax documents once a month? Why buy the machine when you can use the one down the hallway?
Virtual Washington DC office space is the ideal solution for so many entrepreneurs. Could it help you save money and look more professional?
