TIP: The virtual office solutions in affluent areas are very similar price to the those in areas that aren’t affluent. For a little more, you’re able to create a fabulous image for your company with a virtual office address.
Virtual office companies provide a commercial mailing address. This works. This is our formula for choosing the best virtual office:
- Google “the most affluent zip codes” in your area, county, or state.
- Choose the top five zip codes in the results and add the search term “[Enter Zip Code] virtual office”
- Then exclude the lazy or high-risk virtual offices. Which ones are lazy and high-risk?
A good virtual office will require US Postal Form 1583 and a copy of your photo ID. This keeps scammers away.
The virtual offices to avoid are those run by lazy and irresponsible people don’t require USPS Form 1583 and photo ID. This attracts scammers who seek to use their address to do wrong. This increases the chances of that address being flagged with a high incidence of fraud and theft. Placing a flagged address on your company is detrimental to building business credit. Avoid connecting your company with those addresses.
You’re always better off using a virtual office who is careful with whom they do business.
- Avoid virtual office providers that place people in collections. There’s one that will sell you on their virtual office solution. They may ignore your request to cancel services and continue billing you, and then place you in collections.
