Moving Mountains in Tough Times

Tough times don’t send an itinerary before coming! And exactly, this was the situation with many firms when recession hit the global market economy. What most people did immediately was to cut down infrastructure costs, laid-off staff to keep money outflow in control.

Say you have a traditional office, but you find it pretty expensive to maintain and want to shut it down. The next easy decision is to resort to a mailbox service to get your correspondence. Do you know how such a decision can negatively affect your business? You may lose credibility with clients and finally turn them off completely. They know no one works out of a box.

Another scenario may be that you own a small firm and everything was well right till the recession. You had already made big plans of having an office in New York but now looks like this is out of question. How do you make smart decisions to start growing your business again? You are puzzled and would love to find a solution that not only works for you but is also financially sound.

You can’t afford to lose clients. The key is if you don’t serve your clients in time, somebody else will. You also wouldn’t want your clients finding a mailbox when they come to your office to meet with you!

These are not easy decisions to make; it may give you sleepless nights! There are certain things you can’t ignore if you want to keep your business rolling. Then, how do you tighten your purse strings in a way that wont harm your business, yet gives you ample choices, customized to suit your needs?

Imagine, a well established company running your office for you, while you spend your time and money on growing your business goals.

A virtual office in NYC can do wonders to your business during a bad economy. It will enable you to work virtually, yet the physical office is there for those times you need to come and meet with clients, or have a private space to work. There’s no longer a need to have a full-time traditional office. You can get a warm welcoming receptionist to answer your client’s calls.

Finally, a solution that works for you and gives you the freedom to plan your business while we run your office for you. Moving mountains is easy, only if you don’t have baggage to carry; this is what a professional New York virtual office service can do for you!

Want To Go International In 2010?

Want to go international in 2010?

It’s easier than you think with a virtual office!

Do you have big plans for your business in 2010? Of course you do! The Internet has made it easier than ever to market to a global audience so why wouldn’t you take the opportunity to expand your business? It’s a fabulous idea but many business operators have found that while they can reach prospective clients all over the world with their advertising, getting overseas clients to advance to the stage of placing an order is a different matter, particularly if you don’t have any overseas offices. Here are three of the main reasons for their reluctance:

1. People like to shop locally. This can apply to corporate clients as well as individuals.

2. When you’re ordering from an interstate or overseas business, there’s a nagging doubt that you’ll receive the product or service promptly. When you don’t have a street address people can relate to they can have difficulty forming an opinion on the size and professionalism of your business. When in doubt, they’ll revert to a local supplier.

3. Credibility – if the business is run predominantly online, is based overseas or interstate and has no street address displayed, it raises doubts as to whether it is a legitimate operation. At the very least it raises the concern that if you pay your money and your product or service doesn’t arrive there is no way of tracing the perpetrator.

Of course, setting up physical offices overseas is a major expense and one that is out of reach for the majority of business operators – but there is a viable alternative. Virtual offices are your answer. Starting from just $25 a month you can have a New York office. You’ll be able to use the prestigious office address, and have mail sent to your New York address and forwarded to you. You can even take advantage of a New York phone number that diverts to your number or to a message service. Live call answering is also available for your overseas New York office! And if you’re ever in the situation where you need to meet clients in New York, you’ll be able to book office space to use at your physical New York office address.

If you’re planning to go international in 2010, a New York virtual office will get you off to a great start without costing you a fortune.
