7 Things Every Home Office Needs for their Virtual Business
Starting a virtual business is easier than ever before, and having a home office is critical for you to focus on it as a business rather than a hobby. When you’re preparing your home office, what things do you need to be the most successful you can be? Here are 7 Things Every Home Office Needs for their Virtual Business.
Find the Right Phone System
Your customers are going to need to reach you, so having an awesome phone system is critical. Remember, we have a variety of memberships that include local phone numbers, toll free numbers and live answer professional receptionists.
A Virtual Secretary
Virtual receptionists project a professional image every call – every time. The not only answer the phone in your custom greeting, they can also schedule appointments and take messages for you if the need arises.
Build an Intranet
If you have virtual employees, you’ll need this to foster communication and instill in them the sense that they remain part of a team. You can connect with your virtual team and share information easily.
A Place for Off-site Meetings
You’ll need a virtual office like ours for when you have to meet clients or host conferences. We’ve got Wi-Fi, copiers and printers, and everything you need to make our space your office for the day!
A Reliable Email System
You must be reachable by your clients and virtual team. If you have ever “lost an email” then you know how frustrating it can be. Use an email system that will actually get your messages to and from you. We use Microsoft Outlook for daily email and Mail Chimp for bulk messaging.
A Payroll System
Manage payroll exactly as you would in a traditional office, with mailed paychecks or direct deposit.
A Professional Website
Your website should display a professional public image for your virtual business. Create a biography of all your virtual business members, a description of your services and equipment, achievements as a team, and a central contact for potential and existing customers to come to you and other members of your team.
