Virtual Office: Good For Business
Many small businesses, particularly service-oriented businesses that don’t require a storefront to sell products, opt to operate without a physical office. Instead, upstart owners utilize P.O. Boxes, work out of their homes or simply skip identifying an address for their business, other than an email address and mobile telephone number.
The Virtual Office package, which can include access to furnished executive office suites and meeting rooms when needed, is a great solution. BLE Executive and Virtual Office Suites has many affordable, flexible options that allow businesses to do their best work and grow at their own pace.

Here are the top three reasons why small businesses should consider getting a physical address:
- Professional Appearance: A physical office space gives off the impression that the business is successful and trustworthy – providing a professional face for customers and colleagues. A P.O. Box or no address on a business card can send the message that the business is too small or too young to handle large clients or requests. A physical address also makes it easier to receive packages, etc.
- Place to Meet Clients: Meeting clients at their place of business or at a coffee shop or restaurant does not instill confidence. Send a stronger message with a physical address and access to professional meeting spaces equipped with everything you need to run a meeting, from projectors to conference rooms. For instance, BLE’s receptionists are available to answer your telephone calls and greet guests.
- Google Search: Google Local Search is an essential tool for small businesses. Consumers tend to use a business that is within 20 miles of their home or business. To be listed on Google Local, however, a business must have a physical address. The latest Google update, in fact, has removed some service-area businesses from its search results for not having an address, and Google does not accept businesses with P.O. boxes in its online listings.
