Few business owners may know they can have virtual office services for as little as $79 monthly in Irvine. You can hardly get dinner for 2 for that anymore. So to have a great address and all the business services you need for that amount of money is hard to believe. But it’s true.

The cost of commercial space is routinely listed as one of the major challenges for every business. This is why virtual office services are so popular,  small business start-ups usually have less than a snowball’s chance in hell of affording an office rental, let alone in a really great location.

There’s no doubt it can cost a small fortune (actually, a large one in many areas) to live just about anywhere in either Southern or Northern California. It's the same for business, so for entrepreneurs and small business owners - the struggles can be enormous. The best thing about Irvine is that it is one of those cities which seems to have gone out of its way to build business friendly initiatives. That at least can cut some of the expense down to some semblance of affordable size. Note, I said "semblance."

Virtual office packages come with things like professional receptionist services to greet clients, as well as mail receipt and optional forwarding. This lets companies starting out or trying to expand in Irvine actually do it without going broke. In fact, all of these services rival what most companies have.

Unlike L.A., Irvine enjoys a consistently high satisfaction level when it comes to business street cred. Image is everything in California -- and unless you’re in entertainment (well, some forms of entertainment) - you have to look like you’re serious about business. Virtual offices provide entrepreneurs with everything they need and more to compete with successful companies of all kinds.

It’s clear that having a virtual office versus leasing physical spaces is kind of like having a dream come true for companies in need to get their feet on the ground when just starting out.
