DVO_week21_1The cutting edge of today’s business game is “on demand.” Much like cable services, businesses like the idea of having what they need available whenever they need it. When it comes to business - virtual services offer the type of on demand assistance that are particularly useful in swanky places like San Francisco.

Most every entrepreneur and small business owner understands they can really grow and flourish when they have a primo business location. That’s a no brainer - but what isn’t a no brainer is how they can ever afford one. This is where virtual offices are critical. Because if your target market is San Fran - whether it is for B2B or general clientele - you better have an address there. Otherwise, companies may not be so interested in doing business with you. That’s just the harsh reality of it. There are so many companies competing for the same business these days that when people can buy local, they do.

Virtual office services offer every advantage traditional offices do - but without the sticker shock. Instead, you get a service that handles and forwards phone calls, mail and all that good stuff new and existing companies need to run a business poised for success.

The best part of having a virtual office is that it doesn’t need to be apparent that you don’t have a physical location all to yourself. The truth is that you can get your calls at a San Fran number, your mail at a kick ass address, and when you need it, use a conference room in the area when you want to take a meeting.

Personally, I really like the idea of being able to run a business professionally without spending money on a full time physical office. Besides, that gives me plenty of chances to be away - not that I really need an excuse!
