Listen up contractors. Your competitors may be winning customers that you aren’t reaching through the use of technologies and outsourced services.
Indeed, electricians, plumbers, roofers, pool cleaners, painters, and other individual service contractors who are using virtual offices are able to better manage their office work flow and boost their professional image to their customer base.
How can virtual office services help you present your best business face?
Consider the inconvenience—and even danger—of trying to answer the phone while working on a high ladder or under a sink. Or what about the painter trying to grab his cell phone with a spackling tool in one hand and paint all over the other? It’s a mess in the making.
Also, consider the image you give off when you use your home address or a P.O. Box on your business card. And what about the business you lose by mismanaging the administrative work? Get the picture?
With a virtual office, you can opt for virtual receptionist services that answer your calls professionally, schedule appointments, and take personal messages across a wide range of business hours.
You’ll also get a business phone number with a pre-recorded message and premium call forwarding included. Voicemail converts seamlessly to email. Oh, and let’s not forget the corporate mailing address that keeps your home life private.
Of all the industries that could benefit from a virtual office, independent contractors is one of the strongest matches. And with live receptionist services starting from as little as $125 per month, or a business mailing address starting from just $39 per month, it’s an easy expensive to justify if you are trying to spruce up your business image and productivity.
