Los Angeles is one of the main business hubs in the country - if not the world. As part of the big three - New York, Chicago, and L.A. - there is no mistaking its importance. The sheer breadth of types of businesses in the region is astonishing. One of the main reasons entrepreneurs are attracted to the city is its progressive attitude.

However, it is still enormously expensive for any startup to think about setting up shop in L.A. So much so that some just decide to go elsewhere. But for those companies who will rely upon the entertainment industry or weather-based tourism, it won’t do much good to go elsewhere.

This is where virtual offices can provide just the type of solution necessary to get a new business off the ground. Both literally and figuratively. Because a nice business office with an established address runs merely $60 near the downtown area. Compared to what it costs just to rent an office there, that is an unbelievable bargain.

Virtual office packages give small business startups, consultants, entrepreneurs, and independent contractors all of the benefits of a traditional office - minus the overhead and hassle of entering into high priced leases with long term commitments. For new businesses, making a leasing commitment is stressful, given the uncertainty of how well the business will do.

The services can all be tailored to meet the precise needs of clients, so they only pay for what they truly need. For example, there are communications, mail, administrative, and conference room services. Any service package may be expanded in order to meet the requirements of any growing business. This means no waste of financial resources for the business.

Virtual office services also include administrative support staff services, none of which are out of pocket for a struggling new business. In California, pay rates are some of the highest in the nation for these types of services. Not to mention the cost of benefits. For a new startup, this can all make the difference between opening up shop - and not!
