Spending too much time on meager tasks when you should be growing your business? Want to spend more time with the family? Running a business is tough. But happily, today’s small businesses have a whole host of time-saving tools at their disposal, and a virtual office is one of them.
“Too much work, not enough play” – sound familiar? We all strive for an effective work-life balance. Small business owners are particularly under pressure, as they are the driving force behind the business and feel they have to be switched on to “work mode” every waking minute. This can lead to unhappiness at work and stress, which can spill over into family and home life.
So how do you combat this? And how can you gain that elusive work-life balance?
Happily, small business owners have an arsenal of tools available to help make their working lives that little bit easier. And a virtual office is one of them. How, do you ask? The answer is not limited to one solution, but rather, several solutions that work together to help streamline business processes, reduce workload, and keep your clients feeling like No. 1.
Let’s start with streamlining. With a virtual office, you could opt for a professional live answering service through our team of trained, experienced receptionists. When you’re busy growing your business – whether that’s strategizing, meeting clients or marketing your brand – constant calls from your cell phone can be an unwelcome distraction. Particularly when it’s an unwanted sales call or a wrong number. At Alliance Virtual, our professional receptionists can take that distraction away from you by answering, screening and handling calls to your requirements. Just think how much time this could save!
There’s another benefit to our live receptionist service, and it’s all about image. Having calls answered by a professional receptionist can go a long way towards improving your business image. No more important missed calls, or feeling like you’re on the spot when a client calls and you can’t remember their name. Leave it to our receptionists to make sure your clients feel like No. 1.
Of course, signing up to a swanky business address is another way to boost your business image. You might spend most of your time working from home or on the road, but as far as your clients are concerned, that skyscraper on Avenue of the Americas is your business home. And it’s not just an address on your business card either. With Alliance Virtual, you can benefit from on-demand meeting rooms and day offices too – perfect for meeting (and impressing!) clients, and having somewhere to land when you’re in town.
Alliance Virtual is all about helping you to streamline your tasks, boost productivity and grow your business. After all, you deserve it. And with less time spent fire-fighting and more time spent focusing on the things that matter – like family – you’ll soon be well on the road to work-life-balance success!
