Many small companies use a Post Office Box as their address. That is the number one guarantee that you will not be contacted by the larger or more established businesses. Your goal when creating your business should be to create a high level of professionalism and a strong corporate feel throughout all aspects, this includes your address.
As an example, compare the following addresses:
PO Box 5
Irving, TX 75014
Downtown Republic Center
325 N. St. Paul Street
Dallas, TX 75210
The impact of the second address on the corporate feel of your firm speaks for itself.
You may now ask yourself how you can possibly acquire a corporate address without spending a fortune to do so and here is your answer:
Use a virtual office. A reputable company that we recommend for this service is HQ.com. They have 750 business locations, in prominent buildings, that are available to you when you need them. The second address provided in the above example happens to be an actual HQ virtual office location that you could rent.
By choosing this route you will have a mail forwarding system in place, a corporate address, boardrooms to use when you need them and will have the option to utilize some of their other excellent services such as professional phone answering. You receive these benefits at a fraction of what it would cost for you to rent an actual brick and mortar location.
One of our primary goals is to assist you in avoiding some of the common mistakes made when creating a new security guard firm and spending too much on a brick and mortar office or using a PO Box are a couple of the big ones.
If you’re like most of our clients, you have limited funds for this venture and preserving capital is critical to your chances for success. That being said, a virtual office is one of the best things you can do to preserve your capital while at the same time keeping your monthly bills low. No one knows when their first contract will be acquired, nor how long it will take to generate any type of legitimate revenue, so it is absolutely critical that you keep your expenses low and your money in the bank; a virtual office is one of the best ways to achieve this.
