What's the Difference Between Virtual Offices and PO Boxes?

When you have an at-home business, you will likely not want to list your home address on professional client facing documents. Thankfully, you have a few options to choose from when it comes to getting a professional mailing address. The one most people consider is a PO box because of its low cost and often close proximity to your home office. Another option you have is to get a virtual office. There are lots of advantages virtual offices have over PO boxes, here are a few.

Personal Service

When you have a virtual office at Centerco, we have a receptionist available during business hours to sign for your packages and notify you when a package or important mail arrives. Having someone to keep track of what is coming in makes it much easier to have a handle your workload.

SEO Advantages

We are sure you have heard of the benefits of search engine optimization a time or two. Did you know that PO boxes are not eligible when registering your business on Google? That is a HUGE hit on your SEO potential. Having a professional street address that a virtual office provides allows you to add your business to a wide variety of search directories in order to make it as easy as possible for potential clients to find your business.

Professional Address

Speaking of a professional street address, unfortunately, PO box addresses have gotten a bad reputation for being connected to fishy businesses. With a virtual office address, you have to look of owning your very own office suite while working from home.
