COVID-19 is pushing business operators to start analyzing every dollar spent. Where companies used to occupy large physical footprints spreading across multiple floors of an office tower, the new trend will soon move towards a minimal overhead with employees beginning to work from home more often.
What better way to reduce your footprint without sacrificing your professional image? Virtual office services.
A virtual mailbox is exactly the place to start.
A virtual mailbox provides a corporate identity, while also allowing for mail collection, handling, and forwarding.
Whether that may be simple letters or packages, you can trust that they will go to a physical location, where they can be tracked and delivered to.
They go beyond the standard PO box as there are live staff collecting and sorting your mail, and notifying you when letters arrive that you need to run your business smoothly and effectively.
Furthermore, the beauty of virtual mailbox services is that they are located Worldwide and you can use them to establish addresses in any region, to help your local customers reach you more effectively.
Virtual mailbox addresses are commonly found in premier addresses like Bay Street in Toronto. They show the world that you mean business and that your home address isn’t a professional place to receive mail and clients.
Of course, as your business grows, that premier address becomes more and more important. Impressions matter a lot, probably more so than they should. But as long as you know that, you can take advantage of that fact.
Make the address the corner stone of your business. Lead your clients and customers to an address they can trust, and more importantly, send their mail to a place they know won’t be neglected.
It can be stressful for a client to not know whether their documents or cheques will arrive safely. In a residential address, there is always the risk of theft, not to mention you may not be home to receive and sign for important mail.
For a business just starting up, one missing cheque can be the difference between continuous growth, and shutting down.
Thankfully, you don’t have to go through that.
