Out of the office doesn’t have to mean missing out on business 

14 October 2022

Whether you are a busy trades person out on the job, or a small or self-employed business hustling for clients, chances are your working days are the opposite of a regular 9-5 job in an office. 

Keeping costs low whilst trying to grow your business can be a challenge and requires a different approach to ‘getting the job done’.  Rather than doing everything yourself, many are now getting help and resource on a monthly ‘subscription’ basis. (1)  

Think of it like the Netflix of business, you pay for someone’s time and support on a fixed monthly basis, leaving you confident that a service will be delivered without the hassle.  Just like say an accountancy app or person who helps you with your monthly accounts, this is exactly what a virtual office provides.  Not only does a virtual office make your life easier but it will save you money, raise your credibility and profile and provide you with help and resource where and when you need it. 

Taking care of business, for your business 

So, what exactly is a Virtual Office and how can it help you?  

Every business no matter how big or small needs to deliver a professional service, even when you’re not in the office.  When you’re working on a job, in a meeting or on the move, getting a voicemail isn’t a great experience for a someone trying to call you, but it can be virtually impossible to answer every incoming business call when you work on your own or as part of a small team.   

Having a virtual office with access to our remote receptionist services, means you’ll never miss a call or delivery – great if work from home or spend your working day working remotely.    

Our team of experienced virtual assistants work as an extension of your business, personally greeting your clients, handling your calls, appointments and mail, and delivering a professional customer experience. 

A recognised business address means you’ll have a secure place to receive any mail or parcels, with the added benefit of improving your business image and credibility.   It will ensure that your home address is kept private and not only provides a single address for all mail deliveries, but can also be used on any formal company documentation and listings. 

“Being based in Witney, Hexagon had an accessible office and all the facilities we needed to operate virtually. The staff are fantastic and act ads an extension of my own business”. Simon Bray – Responsible Wealth. 

Free up your time to focus on what you’re good at  

A virtual office service is a practical solution that many people are now turning to, as it removes the administrative and image challenges that many small businesses face, and allows budgets to be managed with a fixed monthly cost.   

“We use the virtual service because it means we can be anywhere in the world. Currently the business is structured that we can work form anywhere. So having a reliable virtual office service means I can do my job and know things will still get done and not be missed”.  Stephanie Unland – The Recycler 

Put simply, calls, mail and meetings taken care of, wherever you are, meaning that when you’re out of the office, the admin side of business is taken care of, without the cost or hassle.  

Don’t let missed calls lead to missed potential clients or frustrated clients who can’t get hold of you.  Hexagon Virtual Office assistants will take care of your calls and mail, leaving you to do what you do best.
