In today’s competitive business world, perception is everything. You have to make the right first impression and maintain a favorable image in every aspect of your business, no matter how small you think that aspect might be. Even something as simple as having a recognizable area code can make a big difference when it comes to credibility. A familiar area code or toll-free number makes your company look more professional and reassures consumers that you’re running a legitimate business. And according to a Business Insider article, “800 numbers make your small business look bigger,” which can be crucial when you’re going up against big competitors. However, if you’re a small business owner, chances are you’re taking a lot of the calls right out of your home and are using your personal number or cell phone. There’s a better way. With Davinci’s virtual office services, you can get a phone number with the right area code as well as hire a live virtual receptionist to answer all your phone calls.

Running your own small firm or solo law practice isn’t easy. You must constantly increase your client base, work to stay current with practices in your area and learn marketing skills — all in addition to running a business. It’s time-consuming and uncertain. But there are plenty of positives, too—like being your own boss. Fortunately, resources are available to help you meet these top seven challenges.
1. Modest Salaries
Especially in the beginning, small firms offer smaller salaries than larger firms. But the almighty dollar isn’t the driving force for many attorneys. Just like in other professions, some people put themselves through school, incur large student loans and work long hours because they love what they do and enjoy helping people. Keep this in mind when you’re working long hours to build your business.
Ten years ago, owning a small business meant having a physical office. But today that’s just not the case. Mobile devices, broadband connectivity, cloud computing and other technologies are allowing employees to work from home or on the go. Now you have the option to do the same and ditch huge leasing and equipment fees while increasing the flexibility of your business. But should you? While it has many benefits, operating from home isn’t right for every small business owner. Here are some big factors to consider.
Client meetings and employee interaction
A physical office allows you to host client meetings and showcase your business. It also gives you the ability to collaborate with your clients in person—making it easier to know if you’re meeting their needs After all, you can’t read body language behind a computer screen. And employee camaraderie is a large part of most people’s lives. More importantly, in-person collaboration can be central to a project’s success.
One of the things I love most about Atlanta is how progressive it has become – especially when it comes to new business. In fact, startup companies are so welcomed in Atlanta that they even have a contest for them! The Startup Atlanta contest is designed to attract and help new business owners get started. It’s a grand idea, especially since it is so expensive to do business anywhere these days.
But how can a new startup enter a contest when they don’t even have an office? That’s simple. Get a virtual office! For around $50 bucks a month, I get a snazzy business address where I get my mail and packages and even have them forwarded to me for a little extra. They have a receptionist and a live person answer calls and take messages or forward calls to where ever I happen to be.
