As a company, it’s perfectly possible these days to create a virtual local presence in an area to enhance your company’s reputation. Through an outside provider, you can maintain a virtual presence in a city or town even though your company itself may be located elsewhere in the country, or could even be mainly internet-based.
A virtual office service provider can act as a local representative for your company by answering calls on behalf of your company and by forwarding any mail to your company’s trading address.
When looking for a service, it makes sense to go with a local company. It may be mainly sentimental and possibly even a little ethnocentric, but you feel safe with a local company. Knowing that someone is local makes them feel reliable. As a local themselves, a client will know what standard of services are provided in their area and will know what to expect. Therefore, having a virtual local presence assures a client that you will live up to the local standard, the one that everyone in the area is familiar with.
There is a sense of community pride and a vested interest in a community that comes with being local. Any client therefore will trust that a local company not only will do a good job and really give them their money’s worth, but they will care for you as a valued customer.
Being a local is an assurance of a certain quality of customer care; gaining a local presence for your company therefore guarantees any potential clients that you can deliver the same level of customer care that you would expect from any local business owner.
Not only this, but a local company can’t take your money and run, so as a client you have the assurance that you won’t get a raw deal, and if there are any issues, it should be simple to sort them out.
When seeking out a company, it’s always easiest to go with a company you can relate to. Surely the best type of company to opt for then is one that is local?
By choosing a local company, you know that you are choosing a provider that understands your situation and any factors that need considering in relation to geography. A local company will be aware of things such as issues with transportation and delivery plus they’ll know exactly what the challenges might be with phone and TV reception. For example, if you’re sick of having to explain the situation with internet connectivity in your area, you’ll opt for a local provider who knows the problem you’re dealing with instead of having to explain it to an outsider.
By having a virtual local presence, you assure a client that you understand any potential issues that might arise. There is an onus therefore on you as a service provider to be familiar with the locality that you have a virtual presence in. However, should your company be equipped with local knowledge, having a virtual presence is a way to use this effectively.
Legitimate Local Customer Service
Not only does having a virtual presence give you all the benefits of being local on paper, but it does actually give you the benefit of having legitimately local customer service. While your company itself is not truly situated in the area, the representative you choose to use will be. Those working to create your virtual presence will be in the vicinity, they will know what it’s like to live in that area, and while talking to your clients on your behalf, they can do so as a member of the community.
Having a virtual local presence for your company provides you with all the benefits of being a local, without having to go through all of the work involved in actually moving your company. The benefits of being a local are multitudinous and really make creating a virtual local presence worth it.
