Traditional office space requires rent, utilities, permits and employees. In short, an office costs you money. In today's virtual world, many small businesses work out of virtual offices. What exactly is a virtual office, you wonder? Well it's an office without walls. A virtual office used to be just a mail box and sometimes a shared conference room for occasional use. Now virtual offices include entire suites of services, all the way up to having your own virtual secretary. This allows you as the business owner to keep costs low without sacrificing some of the best parts of having an office. With a virtual office, you have a full-time staff of virtual secretaries on call for you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. All for a fraction of the cost of one full time receptionist.
With all that extra money you save from salaries, taxes and benefits, you can expand your business with aggressive marketing or use it to purchase equipment or supplies. As your business grows, no need to hire additional staff as your virtual secretaries can handle any volume of work that comes your way.
Let's face it, as a small business owner in the service industry you can't be married to one location. You need to be able to be on the road and billing hours. When you are on a job site, who is going to man your phones? Your voicemail? When a call goes unanswered, opportunity is opened up for you to lose business. Don't let calls go unanswered. Don't let your business go to your competition. Contact Impact Answering Service today to discuss what we can do to help you become virtual.
