Build a Local NYC Presence with Virtual Offices

DVO_week23_1Local marketing is all the rage these days. Whether you have a website that caters to the world or not, you’re missing the boat, if you don’t focus on local marketing in some capacity. The reality is that no business can really afford to open an office in every state. But what most firms can afford easily is a virtual office.

A friend of mine who lives in L.A. really wanted to tap into the local market in NYC. He spent some time there to ratchet up some business and contacts. Many of the people he does business with in L.A. also have NY connections. So he went back to L.A. and thought about relocating. But he wasn't all that hot on the idea because he wasn't looking forward to those hot and humid summers and cold winters back east.

So he got a NYC virtual office instead! He’s really into local marketing and it works well for him in L.A. That’s why getting a virtual office in NYC made so much sense for him. His address on 5th Avenue only costs $50 a month and he has everything he needs. They answer his phone, forward his calls, and receive and forward his mail. Because of the ‘find me’ feature on the phone service, he never misses an important call. The best part is that he controls all of this - he decides how accessible he will be on any given day, which is easy because his calls are screened.

He paid a little extra to get his company name in the lobby because he tends to get a lot of walk-ins. That’s because he puts his address on virtually everything - from business cards to website and everything else. He attends events and passes out his card, inviting people to stop by when they’re in town. The funny thing is that he is rarely in town, since he doesn’t live there!

Toronto Virtual Offices Serve Champagne Tastes on a Beer Budget

DVO_week19_3Despite the struggling economy, clients still require world class business service. In fact, the demands seem to have increased since there is so much more competition. So how does a company that wants to take advantage of a lucrative market like Toronto manage to impress new clients?

While it may seem unrealistic to even try to compete with larger firms, there is a solution. Virtual office services from Davinci allow businesses in any industry to handle operations efficiently - without the typical effort or expense needed to run physical offices.

For as little as $59 each month, even the smaller businesses can operate like larger corporations do - with an impressive address in the heart of Toronto, receptionists to answer calls and advanced communication systems. Staff members are trained to respond professionally to all calls using individualized company messages that are essential in establishing distinctive business identities.

The fast messaging services eliminate lags in response times which can really hamper business. Messages are sent immediately to relevant parties, including fax notifications. Faxes and messages can even be converted to digital formats or e-mailed directly to business owners. This is particularly handy for the road warriors who travel a lot.

Best of all, no one knows you may be sitting on a gorgeous beach somewhere or enjoying a wonderful day outside - anywhere in the world. All they know is that you will get their message fast.

Clients get maximum flexibility so they can keep up with the changing pace of business, which seems to go faster by the minute. Packages are easily upgraded and when the business grows, so can the number of virtual offices. For instance, more cities can be added to create a national network. This really helps business, since more offices makes it easier to impress new prospective clients. The irony of course remains that in order to get business, you have to already look like you have a lot of business. You know, money goes to money. Virtual offices make it easy to look like you have a lot more than you actually do!

With Your Virtual Office, You Can Have A Meeting Anywhere

SAMSUNG DIGIMAX A503Sometimes it can seem like there's no time for both business and pleasure. This couldn't be further from the truth. More and more entrepreneurs are realizing the kind of freedom they can have, if only they utilized a virtual office. With a virtual office, a business can have a prestigious mailing address, its very own toll free number and fax line, and a live receptionist to receive and forward calls during business hours. The features of a virtual office make telecommunication the new standard in conducting business. Meetings no longer need a stuffy board room when they can be done on-the-go through teleconferencing.

In today's technology driven workforce, traveling across the country or around the world to conduct business meetings is inefficient, uneconomical, and even ecologically destructive. Virtual meeting participation has been on the rise now and is almost certainly set to define the way people do business. With a virtual meeting, employees and clients alike can dial in from wherever they happen to be in order to participate, share ideas, learn, and benefit from connecting regardless of their location.

If you have a virtual office, you don't have to worry about missing important calls or messages during your meeting. Your very own live receptionist will be there to direct calls or take messages. During off hours, the voice mail system for your virtual office will take messages for you and forward them to you, even translating the messages to text and sending them via email. It doesn't get much more convenient than that.

If you're sick of cheap hotel rooms with uncomfortable beds, flying business class, filing the minutiae of your travel expenses, and spending time away from your home and family, you should probably consider virtual meeting participation and a virtual office. With a professional setup like that in place, family vacations, recreational trips, and other fun activities no longer have to be put on the back burner to accommodate long nights at the office or costly business trips. Virtual offices and meetings are often easier for everyone involved, yet they don't diminish the professionalism of a business.

Work Where You Want - Your Indianapolis Virtual Office Will Do The Rest

DVO_week19_1In today's economy, the pricing scheme for commercial property is a joke. An entrepreneur who is trying to create a thriving business can't always afford to shell out thousands of dollars a month to have a physical workspace, especially when they can accomplish the same basic functions at home, on the go, or basically anywhere with an Internet connection. However, it's a challenge to get someone to take you and your business seriously without a corporate location, receptionist, and unique phone number. Businesspeople and entrepreneurs from all walks of life are looking to obtain these services without going broke renting commercial property. That's why virtual offices are so popular.

With virtual offices, you can have an awesome professional business address in a respected city like Indianapolis without having to stick to a boxed mac and cheese budget. You'll have a live virtual receptionist during the time your virtual office is open for business and voice mail service the rest of the time. Your business will even have its own professional toll free number and fax line! You can choose to have calls forwarded to you on a by-need basis, and mail can be picked up at your virtual office location or forwarded to your home address for your convenience. With a virtual office, you'll have all the professionalism and benefits of a commercial office location while working from home, abroad, or wherever the day takes you.

Another exciting feature of your virtual office is the convenience of having any necessary licenses hung for you so your office location is official and legally binding. You can even have the name of your business added to the lobby directory at your virtual office location, completing the image of a business that is well established and professional. With all these features available at your fingertips for a cost that is drastically less than that of a professional office, it's a wonder that independent businesspeople and entrepreneurs are still renting commercial space. If you want your business to be highly regarded and have an air of professionalism while remaining convenient as a part of your busy life, a virtual office is the way to go.

Everybody has a business in Miami

DVO_week22_3Your last vacation to Miami was fantastic. The scenery was beautiful, the beaches, food, nightlife, and the people all left a lasting impression. Just thinking about it makes you want to pick up and move there this instant. Well, not so fast. There’s still the mortgage, the children and their schooling, and you’re not even U.S. based.

Your business is taking off and a move right now might upset the plans that have already proven successful. Still, you can’t help but think of the prestige and glamorous image your business would have with a Miami address.

Miami is well known the world over as a tourist and international business destination. Having your own association in Miami will likely provide your company with an offshoot of some of that lucrative business. Miami is a dream location for many entrepreneurs.

Don’t continue dreaming about setting up your office in Miami. Why not set up a virtual office there? In this way your clients can get the impression you are located in this cosmopolitan city - even if you are miles and miles away.

Virtual offices are the perfect plan for professionals whose physical presence isn’t necessary. They could be work from home professionals or traveling professionals who need a nice address and a place that can take their calls. Virtual offices can also provide you a physical space when you need to meet clients for face-to face meetings.

A virtual office setup is more cost effective than a regular leased office. You don’t have to worry about employing staff to take your calls, furnishings, or justifying why you are spending money on a place that you will rarely work from. A Miami virtual office offers suitability - no matter where you call home.

Whatever type of business you have, Miami virtual offices are already equipped with the essentials you need. You are provided with the latest technology and teleconferencing equipment to conduct virtual meetings with far flung colleagues.

You are also free to list the virtual office address on all of your correspondence. Customers like being associated with companies that have well known addresses. It elevates the customers’ esteem, because they are dealing with a quality company. When your customers are happy, you will remain motivated to thrive. And who knows, maybe you will end up in Miami and make your dream come true – even if it means you have to wait until the kids have left home.
