How Does a Virtual Business Address Work? Virtual Mailbox Guide

Coming off a year like no other, businesses all over the world are continuing to re-evaluate their real estate footprint in today’s altered work environment. If 2020 showed us anything, it’s that a company’s ability to be flexible and agile can be decisive in adapting to unforeseen conditions – such as a global pandemic forcing much of our work to be conducted from a virtual or remote capacity. While we don’t know exactly what 2021 holds, we’re now certain that possessing a virtual office option is crucial to combat any future shifts in the work world. Of these virtual office options, the virtual business address – or virtual mailbox – has proven to be one of the most effective remote work assets.  

What is a virtual business address? 

The spread of COVID-19 has forced many smaller companies, solo professionals, and entrepreneurs to move their business HQ’s to living rooms, bedrooms, and kitchens.  

A virtual business address – also known as a virtual mailbox – provides these professionals with a physical street address at a Class A office building that are located within large and small markets alike across the country. Thus, ideal for those seeking to use Grand Central Station or Chicago’s famed AON Center as their mailing address – rather than their kitchen table. 

A virtual mailbox also gives companies and individuals the ability to work flexibly and remotely – while still having a business presence at said address.  

An ode to an increased amount of remote work in 2020, FlexJob’s Work-Life Relationship, 2020, writes, “84% reported that having a flexible job would help them better manage their mental health.”  

Not only is a virtual business address convenient but it also gives instant enhancement of business image and credibility when creating collateral or interacting with clients.  

But, a virtual business address also possesses many more advantageous features than it is perceived to have.  

Unlike a PO Box, a virtual address for a business can give users direct access to their mail as teams of trained administrative professionals can scan mail to be accessed online or forwarded directly to be opened in person.  

These administrative teams can act as a buffer to sort out any spam and alert companies of important mail that has been received, essentially serving as an entirely virtual and online mailbox.

Are there any additional benefits to a virtual business address?  

Virtual business addresses also come with on-demand access to physical office space – such as private day offices and meeting rooms – ideal for growing companies who require a bolstered virtual presence but who also have an occasional need for in-person office space.  

What if I need a larger combination of virtual office products?  

With the changing times, many flex space providers are also pivoting to shape their virtual office product offerings to meet today’s new demands.  

Most commonly has been the combination of multiple virtual office products – such as a virtual business address and business phone service – in either an à la carte style or a total combination in the form of a new product.
