Six Ways Virtual Offices Grow New Mexico Businesses
The terms Virtual Office,” “Virtual Reception,” or “Virtual Mail” can be confusing in today’s age. What does “virtual” mean? Is there an actual office? A real receptionist or a robot? Is real mail involved with Virtual Mail? Office Alternatives would like to outline 6 Benefits of Virtual Office Services helping New Mexico Small Business or Independents grow and succeed.
Here are six things you didn’t know about virtual offices.
Virtual offices are real. A virtual office is a physical, brick-and-mortar location that features all of the modern amenities of a typical office, including professional on-site staff. Virtual Mail affords you to use this professional address as if it’s your company’s place of business when you might actually work out of your home. This becomes important when you’re setting up Google My Business (a must do!) and a geographical presence to be used with all online advertising. Google will not take a PO Box and why would you want your personal home address publicized and associated with your professional business? Office Alternatives has 2 physical locations providing business owners with day-to-day infrastructure and mail packages allowing the small business owner to expand the geographic reach of their business. OA will have a 3rd Uptown location soon to launch in 2019 and plans for Santa Fe in the next 2-3 years.
Virtual offices hourly conference rooms can be rented for as few as 30 minutes. One of the primary benefits of using a virtual office is the low level of commitment. Gone are the traditional leases and overhead associated with a traditional office infrastructure. Whether you need a long-term home for your business or a short-term site for an emergency meeting, virtual offices are an efficient solution. Office Alternatives rents meeting, conference, boardrooms and even training rooms as few as 30 minutes and as low as $10 an hour for members. Virtual offices are designed to be flexible tools for businesses. It’s space when you need it and no cost when you don’t.
Virtual offices offer full-service administrative services. All Office Alternative locations have on-site staff that greet and accommodate you and your guests, offer free coffee with ceramic mugs and real half and half. Most importantly, our trained receptionists offer billable administrative assistance services billed by the minute not hour such as printing, copying, scanning, and mail-forwarding.

Virtual offices can prevent missed sales and missed $$$ Business owners often feel like they can’t step away from their business duties to answer phones. Yet every missed potential client is a missed sale. If a business owner makes $75-$100 per hour, one missed client is missed revenue. What if you missed 1 client per day? Statistics show 89% of all potential clients move the next company on the Google or Bing listing if they do not get a live answer. Virtual Receptionist Phone service, by Office Alternatives, provides the big-business infrastructure that allows business owners to have live-answer phone service even when on vacation. From answering phone calls and taking messages while you’re gone, and even scheduling appointments, customer interactions will be professionally handled with your specific instructions.

What is a Virtual Address and Why Your Business Should Have One
A virtual address is a professional business address for you company to use to receive mail/packages, list on Google/Bing and other sites, list on your business’ marketing collateral and give out as a place to meet clients by the hour.
Prestigious Business Address
A virtual address is a real, physical business address – a formal notice of the location of your business operations. But a virtual address is more than just a practical tool. It’s a strategy for boosting your business image.
A virtual address from Office Alternatives gives you access to a Commercial Class A or B building without the costs and commitment of a long-term lease and without using a Box number like the mail stores provide. Instead of using your home address or not listing a location at all, this option boosts your professional image and establishes credibility and trust with your clients, prospective clients, vendors and business partners.
A virtual address comes with the use of a private box number internally used to keep your mail private, safe and secure. Office Alternatives provides different sizes of mailboxes, depending on your shipping and receiving needs. We can even forward mail out of state so it looks like your business has a New Mexico location but you really don’t. Each private box comes with its own key, and optional 24/7 access allows you to pick up your mail on your own schedule.
Professional Receptionists Receive Incoming Mail, Packages, Pickups, Dropoffs
Office Alternatives’ locations are staffed with professional receptionists who handle incoming and outgoing mail and packages. These professionals ensure the security of your deliveries, and also solidify relationships with existing customers who are dropping off or picking up items.
A virtual address can allow a business to claim a Google My Business listing, which isn’t possible when using a home address. This is important as consumers increasingly turn to Google properties to get information about a business. When a local consumer searches for a service, a properly formatted Google My Business profile increases the chances that your business is the first presented by Google to the consumer.
Extend Business Presence
When it’s time to expand your business operations into new territories, a virtual business address gets your foot in the door. Subscribing to Office Alternatives’ two locations (two mail packages) affords you an opportunity to claim your business presence in NE Heights and on the West side. How many of your competitors can do that? An address allows you to claim territory while avoiding the high costs and long-term commitments of commercial real estate. As your business presence grows in your new area of business, the level of your virtual office services can increase as needed.
Package Confidence and Security
Highly trained staff, who are familiarized with clients through an extensive orientation, sort and handle your company’s mail. From scanning and forwarding mail* to notifying business owners of important deliveries, you can be sure that your mail and packages are properly handled.
