For most businesses to succeed in the long term, it’s all about marketing. A successful marketing approach generates the enquiries that you turn into revenue, which in turn keeps your business alive and kicking. Most new start-ups are thrown into the ring against much more established competitors, and this can seem intimidating if you don’t have the marketing budget to match your vision.
Fear not: virtual offices can really help in your battle against the big boys in Birmingham.
The marketing allure of a corporate address
It’s easy to ignore the importance of a quality business address on your brand’s reputation. In our personal lives, people are often judged (rather unfairly) on where they live, and businesses are no exception. Potential customers will look for subtle markers such as your address to assess whether you run a successful – and legitimate – business.
Boost your local SEO ranking
A central Birmingham address will undoubtedly affect how your business ranks in local searches and you can use your new address for local directories, your business Facebook page and a multitude of other local marketing platforms. The louder you shout about your new address, the more effect it will have.
If you’re putting in the work to market your business in Birmingham, don’t neglect a local 0121 number to reinforce your local presence, or opt for a national 033 number if you’d rather. Our local telephone number service is £12 per month and includes 500 diversion minutes to your mobile or landline. Any call is diverted seamlessly to your chosen number and the best bit? Your caller won’t know any different.
Alternatively, make the most of our telephone answering packages. Not only do they include a local or national telephone number that’s dedicated to your business, but one of our team will answer the call in your company’s name. Fully briefed in all the information they need about your business, they’ll be able to handle the enquiry on your behalf. Calls can then be transferred to your mobile or landline. Your receptionist will inform you who is on the call, leaving you to either accept the transfer or ask them to take a message.
Call transfers are included free, as are messages by email or text. Prices start from £62.20 per month, including your local Birmingham telephone number, and 20 answered calls alongside your office address.
