When was the last time you looked closely at your business running costs?

26th January 2016

It’s all about the bottom line. For any and every business its success is measured by just one word, and that word is profit. It is that simple. Now if you are an astute businessman you will be looking at your business overheads on a regular basis and you will look to seize each and every opportunity you can to minimise costs. However, advances in modern technology and the way many of us generate business means that the ‘office world’ is changing. The reason for this is predominantly through the fact that the Internet is now a part of everyday life for virtually any and every business.

Here at Virtual HQ we fully understand that there are a number of businesses that do need to have a physical office and who will have staff in those offices. However, we also know that until recently it has almost been a form of tradition that if you have a business, you have an office. Often it is a case that that office is used occasionally for meetings, predominantly for storing files and paperwork, having a desk with your computer on it and actually, the only reason you have an office is so that customers can see you are a legitimate business and your receptionist/secretary has somewhere comfortable and warm to sit.

Today businesses can operate more and more on a ‘virtual’ basis. Providing the phone is answered when it rings, does it really matter whether that person is sat in your office, or at a desk in their home? In a similar vein, will anybody know if they are speaking to you when you’re in your office or sitting in the dining room at home? At the end of the day, what matters most to people is good service and good products. How you actually set about delivering a service or product is actually of little consequence. It is the way things are changing and as a result, in order to drastically reduce overheads and substantially improve profits, more and more small businesses and one-man enterprises are turning to the virtual office.

Having started out in Bristol, Virtual HQ has grown in popularity to the point where we now can offer our clients virtual offices in around the UK as well. We have been able to demonstrate the considerable advantages our first clients enjoyed here in Bristol and we have been able to expand our successful operation as a result. Because virtual office space may be a new concept to you, we fully understand any hesitation or reluctance you may have. However, what we would suggest is that if having an office in any of these four cities is what your business needs, then get in touch with us, voice your doubts and let us explain to you in much greater detail how there are often more advantages than you may have first anticipated when you decide to run your business from a virtual office.
