How A Virtual Mailbox Can Give Your Startup Instant Credibility

Ever tried using virtual mailbox services? If not, you’re missing out on a lot!

In case you’re not familiar with it yet, this is a mailbox service that provides customers with a physical mailing address where postal mail and parcels can be received on their behalf. The service allows users to access their mail from a computer or mobile device and decide which ones have to be shredded, stored, opened and scanned, or forwarded to their chosen location. 

These services have become an absolute must for some nowadays. To give you an idea, we’ve previously written a whole blog post about why digital nomads find virtual addresses extremely useful.

Additionally, startup owners are big fans of digital mailboxes. 

Allow us to share with you several valid reasons the service can directly benefit your business: 

1. You can present a more professional image

You may be operating a small business from your basement but that doesn’t mean you have to use your home address for correspondence. It may seem like nothing is wrong with that but actually, some of your clients may think that’s very unprofessional.

Having a virtual mailbox gives you greater integrity. Maintaining a professional image and gaining your customers’ trust would be much easier. On top of that, you get to achieve a better work-life balance by keeping your personal details private. It’s also much safer - you no longer have to share your home address with strangers over the internet!

2. A virtual mailbox is more flexible than a PO Box

Sure, some may say that using a PO Box does the trick but, in most cases, that option has its limitations. A virtual mailbox is way more flexible, depending on the plan you avail of. The service goes beyond storing your mail and parcels since documents can be forwarded to your preferred address or current location upon your request. 

If necessary, you may even consolidate packages from different couriers so you can save on shipping. This is specifically very useful if you are a frequent traveler. You also get to experience the convenience of managing your mail straight from an app or by logging online. 

3. You get a legitimate business address

As mentioned above, you may be working from home but you may still need an office address for processing your business requirements. So if you don’t have a physical office yet, know that a commercial address offered by virtual address services can be helpful not only for registering mail but even for registering LLCs or when opening bank accounts.

4. You won’t miss important documents anymore

You won’t have to go through the hassle of sorting your mails one by one since the service will be handling that task for you. You get to filter everything by deciding which ones can be discarded or sent to you asap. Record-keeping will be less complicated, more secure, and take up less space, too, as you go paperless with digitized business mail. 

You’ll also receive checks, contracts, invoices, and legal papers with no delay. You’ll be more efficient in your correspondence as you get to quickly respond to those that deserve your immediate attention.    

If all these advantages sound appealing to you, then we’re sure you’ll want to check out our excellent virtual mailbox packages here at The Farm Soho. Our affordable rates start at just $9.99 a month, depending on the type of plan or service you will need for your startup.
