Every small business owner and entrepreneur hopes that their business will grow and expand to many profitable locations. Even though the prospect of expanding is exciting, its reality can be scary and complicated. From the hefty cost of securing new office space and hiring new employees to the uncertainty of the whole process, this can be quite a stressful event. However, it is the right move, and you should run with the opportunity.

If you are worried about how you will find and afford new office space that will fit your employees, we have a solution for you – virtual office space.

What is the Strategic Value of Virtual Office Spaces for Small Businesses?

Here are some of the reasons why small businesses should consider using virtual office space.

COST

Up to 10% of the expenditures in small business are associated with their office space. This includes such things as rent, network bandwidth and utilities. With virtual offices, all these expenses are catered for by the provider, which is a huge benefit to businesses that rely on permanent office space.

LOCATION AND PERCEPTION

Just like in real estate, location is king. The site of your business has an impact on your brand perception. Most virtual office space is located in areas that garner great brand recognition and perception.

MAIL RECEIPT AND FORWARDING

As a small business owner or entrepreneur, you are always on the move, seeking new ways to grow your business. This makes it difficult and sometimes impossible to receive and reply to your mail. Delayed responses to important mail and notices can be detrimental. Virtual offices give you the ability to receive notifications when mail arrives and then have urgent mail forwarded to your specific location, which makes it easier to run your business on the move.

LOBBY GREETER AND RECEPTIONIST

Most small businesses and entrepreneurs cannot afford to hire receptionists. So, should you hire a virtual assistant? You will be pleased to know that most virtual office spaces come with professional receptionists and lobby greeters to provide administrative support and answer enquiries.

PEER COLLABORATION AND NETWORKING

Virtual office spaces give their members the chance to interact with like-minded business owners and entrepreneurs and to gain a social connection or even help them get feedback on their ideas. These connections are also a good primary market for your services.

PROFESSIONAL OFFICE SPACE

Virtual office spaces provide all the necessary tools and amenities to ensure that members are productive and that meetings are effective. These amenities include wireless internet, food and beverage catering and audio and presentation capabilities.

BETTER MEETINGS

With virtual office space, you have access to meeting room space on demand. The meeting room/conference room is well equipped with the latest technology needed for a productive meeting.

FASTER EXPANSION & GREATER AGILITY

Virtual office spaces allow small business owners to easily acquire office addresses in new locations, hire a virtual assistant and have meeting rooms in those locations.

TALENT ATTRACTION & RETENTION

Virtual office spaces allow employees to achieve a work-life balance by cutting back on commute time and the traditional 9-5 schedule.

How Virtual Office Space Can Help You Expand Your Business

ESTABLISH A LOCAL FOOTPRINT

Virtual offices allow small businesses to get a professional business address in well-known districts in different locations without even having to work from that location. This is a quick and easy way to break into a new market.

TARGET A NEW MARKET AND BUILD YOUR NETWORK IN A NEW LOCATION

Having a local address gives your brand some credibility in that location. This is an easy way to acquire customers in a new location. Additionally, you can even host potential clients in fully-equipped meeting rooms, which builds your brand perception.

  • I can’t go with any other choice...

    When I started my engineering business 4 years ago, I was looking for a space where it’s cost effective and at a prime location. It was a challenge! This is the best I could find, close to my home so the driving was faster, also the reception is exceptionally good. When you walk in the office, the welcoming atmosphere, the options I have here, I can’t go with any other choice.

  • You have the necessary simple structure which allows you to focus on your day to day job.

    We’ve been doing this for almost 8+ years on a full-time basis, and I’ve been with Officescape for just over 5 years at this point. Pretty much the length of our practice, we’ve been part of a certain shared office center. With Officescape, you get the advantage of amazing office space, professional staff to greet your clients, and not worrying about unnecessary procedures. You have the necessary simple structure, which allows you to focus on your day to day job.

  • It’s very professional and they don’t even know that its not our office!

    We started using Officescape primarily because we needed an address for mailing purposes and for our product. I use them for meeting rooms as well, when I bring my buyers in. It’s very professional and they don’t even know that that is not our Maxell office. It’s important for us to keep our profile image. Having a company in Canada for 16 years, our buyers are coming into our offices all the time, we still needed a space to have that place for our buyers to come visit us and vice versa.

  • My experience has been very positive!

    I chose Officescape because the staff are really friendly, I found them really helpful and really resourceful. I also find the building to be really clean and really bright, I like some of the architectural design. They always greet my clients very friendly, always offer them coffee, tea, water and always say goodbye to them when they leave. My experience at Officescape has been very positive!
