If you’re a small business owner, you already know the challenges of competing with the big names in your industry. You understand that you can’t invest in the same amenities and technologies that a big firm would, yet you still want your clients and prospective customers to believe that you are capable, confident and eager to meet their needs. Use these tips to leverage your edge over the competition.
Hire a virtual receptionist. Even if you’re a one-man or -woman show, you must be available when your clients need you – after all, personalized service is likely one of your biggest selling points. That means you need someone to care for your other clients when you are unavailable, yet hiring an employee might not be cost-effective. The solution is a Metro Offices virtual receptionist who can answer the phone, reply to emails and maintain the high level of professionalism you need to be successful.
Get a professional address. Keeping a professional appearance can be difficult for start-ups, solopreneurs and home-based businesses. A prestigious office address at one of Metro Offices’ centers will give you the same professional image as the biggest names in your industry for a fraction of the cost of a high-dollar lease.
Rent a professional meeting room. Growing your business and competing with big firms requires face-to-face meetings with clients and prospects in a professional setting, but a home office is not the professional atmosphere they expect. With Metro Offices meeting rooms in Washington, DC, Maryland or Northern Virginia, you instantly get the location and technology you need to promote a professional image.
