Being a consultant allows you to work from home or from wherever you want. It has various benefits, like dictating your own schedule and saving time by not having to commute back and forth from one place to another.
However, any professional, and consultants in particular, need to think about the image they present, making sure that it is a professional, trustworthy one. This is especially true when you have to meet with clients.
Though various professionals often meet in restaurants or coffee shops, there is a risk associated with this, as more often than not, sensitive information is shared and analyzed in these meetings, and in public places, anyone can hear the information that is being shared. For this reason, and various others, consultants often hire a virtual office as a complement to their business.
For starters, virtual offices not only offer the opportunity to list a renowned address in a particular location, they also allow individuals to use the available office and meeting space to receive and meet clients. This allows consultants to present themselves in a professional manner, in a professional setting that exudes professionalism and trustworthiness. Additionally, because these spaces were designed to get business done and they are equipped with the necessary tools, they often improve productivity and inspire people to get work done and solve problems at hand.
Virtual offices also offer other services that help in presenting a professional image. Among the various services offered by virtual offices you will find mail handling and forwarding, VoIP numbers, and live receptionists. This means that you can give clients an address that is not only well-known, but allows you to maintain some privacy; you can also give clients a phone number that will redirect them to an assistant, a sign of success and professionalism. This virtual assistant can fulfill many tasks; from scheduling and confirming meetings, to following-up with clients, to taking important messages while you are away or otherwise engaged.
Furthermore, virtual offices also offer services that can be hired on-demand, depending on your or your clients’ needs. These other services can come in the form of printing, an assistant to help you take notes, handling messages and packages for a specific period of time, notary services, etc.
