What does your business address say about your business?

Your business address is not just a place where you work; it is part of your brand, it can help define the image of your business and it can be the difference between you and a similar company.

Not all businesses require the same things to form their image. For instance, if you are working in finance you may opt for a virtual office in Canary Wharf, which will look much more professional than if your address was your personal address or if you were working on an industrial estate as this would not reassure your clients that you were the right company to go for and it probably wouldn’t match up with the brand identity that you had in mind.
But if you were a tradesman, an industrial estate or a personal address is probably what is expected from your clients and would be the ideal location.
Why use a London virtual address to create the perfect image?
A financial advisor doesn’t necessarily need an office in Canary Wharf to do their job, they can easily do the job at home. The address doesn’t change the actual work that they are doing; it just changes the perception of the company. That’s why it is cheaper and easier to opt for a London virtual office, where you can have the dream address for your business, whilst keeping costs low and avoiding the time consuming commute.

Virtual Office Users Miss out on Rail Fare Increases.

Millions of commuters are facing more misery after rail bosses announced that rail fare prices would see an average increase of 6%, with some fares increasing by 11%. The rise in fares, which is far above inflation looks like it is going to hit commuters hard but there is an alternative that is being embraced by many small business owners to save costs and to give employees more trust and flexibility.
The alternative of course, is a virtual office. A virtual office is designed around convenience. You can be based wherever is ideal for you, in the home office, living room or in a cheaper local office space but you can still operate from that London address that would cost so much to travel to everyday.

Not only will employees save money, they’ll also save time and this can help to improve their work productivity.

Cut your operating costs with a virtual office

According to a new piece of research study from Servcorp, a virtual office can cut monthly operating costs by more than 50%.
The study looks at the savings from virtual office users who are utilising the full range of virtual office services available, including mail forwarding, virtual receptionist and boardroom hire.

Some of the biggest savings include hiring a dedicated phone line and virtual receptionist rather than employing a part time secretary to do a similar job, which would cost, at the very minimum, at least 3 times more.

Avoid the Olympic traffic with a London Virtual Office

As the London Olympics draws closer, we can’t help thinking that traffic in the capital is going to be the busiest ever.
Many office workers in London have been told to expect a transport nightmare during the event and TFL have already released a “get ahead of the games” travel pack, offering transport advice to the millions of people that will be affected.

We believe the best way for office workers to get around the travel chaos is to take advantage of some of the virtual office services available during the Olympics. Existing regular offices can take full advantage of services like mail forwarding and telephone answering as they would allow employees to work from home, where they wouldn’t have to face the traffic hell. Not only will employees be able to start work earlier, they also won’t arrive to work recovering from the stress of battling the morning traffic

Are you going to be affected by the traffic chaos during the Olympics? Consider a virtual office in London from Hold Everything.
