In today’s day and age, more and more companies, especially start up’s, are finding it easier and more convenient to work from home. With the internet connecting people all over the world, do brick-and-mortar offices matter anymore? Absolutely.
No matter what kind of business you’re running, customers and clients want to know that they are working with professionals. This is not to say that businesses run out of a home are not professional, but that it is easier to trust a company that has a boardroom rather than a play room.
Location also plays a factor in running a company. If a potential client/customer decides to search your address online and finds that it is in the center of a neighborhood, you may have lost them before having the chance to meet them. What if you really do work better from home? Nowadays, there are virtual offices; these are the offices that can provide you whatever your company requires, from only a professional mailing address to a business address, phone service and conference rooms when you need them.
