What is a business address package and why is it important?
We take a look at The current covid climate and the internet have opened doors for remote working, paving the way for anyone to work remotely from their home or a different location.
For instance, your workstation could be in your garage or spare room, and it might work well to begin with, but as your business grows, you’ll need a professional appearance to reinforce your business image.
A virtual business address is something that allows you to work remotely whilst enabling your business to carry a professional image.
It offers the many benefits of a physical address but without an actual workspace or desk.
In this article, we have jotted down the advantages of using a virtual address so you can decide for yourself.
The main aspect of customer relationship is ‘trust’ and it plays a major role in marketing. A professional address increases the credibility of your business than a residential one does. If you’ve just started your business, chances are your potential customers might not know who you are or what you offer. If you have a business address in a familiar location, your customers get the positive feel about your business, which in turn develops trust.
For instance, a prestigious address in a sought-after location, imparts a sense of status to your business. It supports your brands impression among suppliers and customers, which is crucial for its longevity.
The Companies House Act 2006 requires all UK businesses to provide and display their registered office address. If your business is registered in the UK, it is mandatory to display your registered address on your website or any other marketing/promotional emails that you send.
Let’s say you register your business under your residential address, which means anyone/everyone will know where you reside. They might even follow you up through Google Street view or even show up at your property without invitation or prior notice. A virtual address helps you avoid all such troubles/inconveniences and allows you to keep your private life separate.
Search Engine Optimisation:
We all know how competitive the business world is. We must fight for elbow room in our niche sector and use all the tools we can to climb the SEO ladder to get our business to the top of the search engine rankings.
Should your business website have no business address listed, then you will have little chance of being discovered by any of the major search engines. This is even more relevant if your business operates on a local community level where your main customers are right on your own doorstep.
What is also important to remember is that without a proper business address, your business will not show up on Google Maps. Lots of potential customers like to have a visual representation of where their local business search results are. If you don’t have a pin in the map, your business will be invisible in the search results.
