How Do I Get Rid of My Office but Not My Professional Business Image? Virtual Office Address from CSnotepad

Monday, January 25th, 2021

an solution to your business success

Are you looking to reduce your outgoings? Or perhaps you’ve found running your business from home far easier than you ever anticipated? Whatever your reason for contemplating getting rid of your physical office, we’re here to tell you that you can run your business from home without loosing your professional business image.

Get yourself a virtual office address with CSnotepad.

Opening and maintaining an office is one of the costliest moves a business makes. Has working from home showed you that it’s completely unnecessary, especially since most communication can now be done over the phone, email, Skype or Zoom? The rental of an office is expensive, rents, rates, cleaners, purchasing computers, desks, chairs, an internet connection, a phone line, as well as the cost of commuting… the list goes on. Working from home provides a financial solution, but not necessarily a professional one. It’s hard for clients and potential customers to take a business seriously if the mailing address is clearly a personal residential address. You also have to consider your privacy – do you really want to be handing out your home address to customers?

Don’t underestimate the need to maintain a professionalism image. Make sure your business still appears reputable by having a physical office location…but without any of the financial commitments of the office that goes with it!

Confused? Don’t be…we’re here to tell you all about a Virtual Office Address solution!

What is a virtual office address?
A virtual address offers you the use of a professional address within an office building or business centre.
You are not renting an office, simply renting the right to use our business centre address as your own. You can use this address for all your business correspondence and give it out to your suppliers and customers, add it to your business cards, add it to your website, it will literally appear that your business is located at our address – you can even register it with Companies House. You can collect your post at a time that suits you if you are local, alternatively if more convenient, we can forward any post onto your desired address. This means you don’t have to be a Brighton based business to benefit from our Virtual Office Address – you can be anywhere in the UK.

Be sure to read our upcoming short blog on why you should choose us for your Virtual Address!

Is the Future for Your Business Homeworking? Increase Your Professional Edge with CSnotepad

working from home

It may have been stressful to begin with, but have you found that you and your team have really got in the swing of homeworking?

Many businesses are now weighing up whether they need to go back to the office full-time…or even at all!

One recurring reason that businesses reach out to us is to bridge the gap in professionalism between office working and homeworking.

During lock-down, your clients and potential customers will likely be understanding of less-then-professional standards like calling personal mobile or home landline numbers, reaching non-business voicemails, having to redial a number rather than being transferred, and letting slide the barking dog and crying child. But, what if you’re looking for a long-term solution to homeworking drawbacks? Find out more about Telephone Answering by CSnotepad…

Think of us like your very own central receptionist, answering, handling and directing your incoming calls professionally, efficiently and reliably.

Privacy to your home workers – no need to give out their personal mobile or landline numbers.

Divert your office phone number to us (it’s simple and we’ll talk you through it). Then your CSnotepad virtual receptionist team will simply answer each call with your business greeting, and patch the call through to the relevant member of your team on their mobile or home landline, but it wont be traceable by the caller, maintaining the privacy of your team.

Ensure that every call gets answered, even during lunch breaks, sickness and holidays.
We have multiple lines available so we can take more than one call at a time. There’s no long wait times or engaged tone for your callers. We can even offer you telephone answering beyond standard business hours – 24/7 if you need it!

Ensure that every call reaches the person in your team best to deal with it.
With only the calls that need to reach you, actually reaching you, you and your team are free from unnecessary distraction giving you the time and space to work on the areas of your business that really need your focus. You can even put in place a hierachy of numbers, so if we can’t reach the best person in your team to deal with a new sale enquiry for example, we’ll then try the next person on your list and so on…

Produce a professional and efficient customer service image for your business – without exception.
A telephone answering service from CSnotepad gives your business an impressive professional image, you’ll appear to have your very own receptionist in place, answering, directing and handling your calls. Your callers will never know that they haven’t reached your business directly – it’s what we pride ourselves on!

We can also make simple outbound calls on your behalf. So, if you have an important call that needs making, but you’re concerned about making that call from home, we’ll happily step in!

Home working? Professionalism SORTED!
