Entrepreneurs behind start-up businesses have plenty on their plate as they launch their new products and services. They need to be on top of product/service and industry developments, have a full understanding of their customer base and market, know about the competition and continually stay abreast of business technologies and industry news that may affect their company.
With all this to be involved with, running an actual office is likely to take a back seat and so it should!
Making the wrong decision about the costly overheads that come with running an office can cost a small business owner their dreams especially in the early days when trying to build turnover and profit. Long-term rental agreements, office outfitting costs and other office overheads such as utilities and technology are a big commitment for small businesses. Additionally, these day to day details of running a small business can sap the entrepreneur’s focus and energy that they should be ploughing into running their business.
The benefits of a virtual office
In the early days, start-ups don’t necessarily need an actual office and instead need a more flexible solution that responds, in real-time, to their constantly changing needs. A virtual office is perfect for new startups as they offer all the pros of the traditional office without the pitfalls.
Here are the benefits of a virtual office:
- They’re affordable
Virtual offices have an affordable monthly fee and there are no costly property leases to get tied into and no expensive capital outlay. Workhub’s Virtual Plans range from €19 to €69 a month. All include a prestigious Dublin mailing address that adds credibility to your company and are realistically priced depending on what level of service you require.
