An Address for Your New Business

Your number #1 priority when starting your business is establishing trust.  Having a physical office address for your business is an important trust and credibility factor. A physical office address puts out the appearance that the business is successful and trustworthy – providing a professional appearance to customers and colleagues.
When you don’t have one, people start getting the wrong ideas, that you’re hiding something or that you really don’t exist.  A company is at risk of losing business and not being found online if they don’t have a physical address.  Although some business starters prefer using their home address I recommend people not to.   It’s not a good idea because there could be the possibility of having a potential customer or salesperson show up on the front doorstep of your home.  Believe it or not, some people may not take your business seriously if they believe you are working out of your home. What impression are they getting when they navigate to your “office” and find themselves parked outside of your home?
If you are an electrician, plumber, roofer, handyman or in any other field in which the major part of the day you are “ON THE JOB”, it does not make sense for you to get a full time office space. 
If you don’t want to jump right into leasing an office space, but still want to establish a highly professional business presence, then a Van Nuys Virtual Office could be the right solution for you. 
Select from a variety of Virtual Office packages and pay for only the services that you need. Prices start at $50/month.
With any of our Virtual Office plans you always have the option of upgrading to a private office. So when your business is ready to expand, Van Nuys Offices, offers full office space rentals on a monthly basis.  This flexibility enables you to expand and contract your business as needed while keeping the same mailing address.  Our comfortable and spacious office environments provided dedicated office space for entrepreneurs, support staff, call centers, business teams, and remote office workers.

Small is the way to start

Small is the way to start:
Small Office for Lease
Small office in Van Nuys
There are many opportunities for people that want to start their own business now than there was years ago. During this economic stress landlords that didn’t consider pursuing smaller tenants are now looking to expand their business and are willing to take small tenants.

Large spaces that have now been divided into smaller ones are helping out those people who have thought of starting a new business but were afraid of the commitment to a large space. The number of small spaces tenants can consider in their searches has increased.

Many people think that when you start a business, leasing office space is not a really important thing because you have that extra room in home you can now use as an office. Yes, having your business run from your home can save you some money. But is it really saving you money.

Many customers or clients seem to feel that a business with a permanent address other than someone's home is less likely to be a flaky business, and more likely to be able to deliver on guarantees. Which means some potential clients can change their mind about doing business with you.

Another consideration that you may want to think about, particularly if your business is mature, is that businesses with outside locations tend to be easier to sell and to bring higher prices. For one thing, the new owner doesn't have to scout out a new location and go to the expense of moving; for another, customers and clients are already accustomed to visiting a particular office and can continue to patronize it despite the new ownership.

A Virtual Office for my Business

When you're a new business start-up, or an entrepreneur with a great idea of starting your own business  but with limited resources, then the best way to start your idea, while still maintaining professional appearance to your clients, is to lease a virtual office.

The benefits of setting up a virtual office for a new business is apparent.  Not only do you save the company money in rent and rates , you achieve a appearance of professionalism and it gives you the freedom to work not just from home, but literally anywhere, meaning you can get out on the road and do some much needed prospecting.

A virtual office is like a traditional office it provides all those services that you expect from a real office without the cost of a traditional office.  Even the tiniest of offices can run several hundred dollars a month plus the cost of commute, the furniture and computers , and at least one telephone line the cost of doing business can become overwhelming.

Setting up a virtual office can seem a bit intimidating at first, but once you get the idea and get a feel of the benefits,  it’s really quite easy. With today’s technologies and the use of a virtual office, there really are no boundaries. With a virtual office you can spend more time with your family, work from almost anywhere, and your clients never need know you don’t have an office downtown, if you prefer them not to know.

Taking my Business Virtual

A good way of saving money and at the same time still maintaining a professional image is to have a virtual office. A virtual office will give you the right impression at a fraction of the cost of having your own office.

A virtual office is a great solution for traveling salesmen. These businessmen travel regularly in search of clients and mostly work from their cars. A virtual office also allows you to be found on Google places since you will have a real business address. You can use the address on your business cards instead of giving out your home address to strangers, increasing your security and privacy. Having your home address listed on business directories can open the door to clients showing up unexpectedly, unhappy clients stalking your home and burglars visiting. Google street view even provides a picture of the front entrance to homes.

Anyone with a home based business knows that some distractions are unavoidable. Some clients might have a habit of dropping in on you, distracting your whole schedule. With a virtual office, you get to plan and choose when to meet them.

When Apple was starting out in 1976, they worked in a garage while their calls were answered by a professional receptionist leaving them free to concentrate on their business.

If you consider that a virtual office may suit your business needs then Van Nuys Virtual Offices can help you start on that dream business of yours from as little as $99.00 a month. For more information you can visit our website at
