Many coworking spaces offer a membership option known as a virtual office plan. Virtual Office plans may include a prestigious, professional mailing address (also known as a virtual address), mail and package handling services, digital mail scanning and delivery, in addition to a private, locked mailbox and other benefits. While a base plan doesn’t include access to desk space in the coworking space, some plans do include day passes. Businesses can also rent conference rooms or other spaces at member rates, making it convenient to meet with clients in the upscale, professional environment that coincides with their business’s virtual address. A virtual address is perfect for individuals and businesses that don’t necessarily need a space to work each day and/or individuals that work from home. A virtual address enhances your business’s professional image and can be used on business cards, letterheads, your website, and other corporate identity collateral. As many shared, flexible workspaces are located in central business districts or upscale business neighborhoods, a virtual address connects your business to your business community. Enhanced Virtual Office plans at Venture X locations may also include live receptionist answering services, access to other locations, and inclusion in events hosted by your coworking community. For some businesses that want to expand into new markets, a virtual address allows these businesses to establish a presence in other potential locations. By connecting with local business communities, businesses can test the waters to determine if certain markets will be a good fit for their companies. If you travel for your business, a virtual address ensures your mail is handled and not sitting outside your door. . A virtual address also helps you put down some roots in your business community and gives you a peek into what flexible workspace is for when your needs grow.
