In a great article on ifsecglobal.com Mike Lynskey gives some worthy advice to security installers who are starting their own business.
Take advice from someone who has been an installer, ran his own installation company and been a self-employed inspector for the SSAIB.
Mike believes that if you’re a sole trader, or small company then you really don’t need to be considering a premises, you can quite easily work from home.
“You need to get the money behind you, you need to get a customer base before you can afford premises.”
We at CSnotepad completely agree with Mike. There’s no need to increase your overheads unecessarily before your business can cope with it.
We understand however that you want and need your business to still appear professional. Your business needs to stand respectably alongside more established companies within your industry.
The Solution – use a Virtual Office Address from CSnotepad
Your business appears well established with an office, giving confidence to potential new clients, while you run your business from home with a Virtual Office Address
A virtual office address is an address that becomes yours to use as you wish, print it on your business cards, use it for your invoicing, add it to your website, use it as for all correspondence and deliveries, and even register it with Companies House if you choose. You can use it for all your business correspondence, giving it freely to all your suppliers and customers – it will literally appear to your customers that your business is located at your virtual address.
You’re not renting the office, you’re simply renting the right to use our address as your own. All post that arrives for your business can be forwarded onto your home address, collected at your convenience, or (many providers like us at CSnotepad!) can take your letters, scan them and email them over to you for speed and ease – the choice is yours.
At CSnotepad we can even offer you a Virtual Telephone Number, this number will be yours with a landline area code to match your virtual office. We can divert this number to your mobile or any other number you choose, further increasing the professional appearance of your business.
