Deciding where to receive your mail as a business is one of the first decisions you need to make when starting up. For someone who’s business operates out of a physical, brick and mortar space like an office building, this isn’t an issue at all. However, for a new business owner looking at working from home, this can be quite an issue.
A business mailing address can go a long way in terms of public perception of your business. Using your home address, although it may be where you conduct your work and may seem convenient can come off as unprofessional. A PO Box at the post office is another option but can be far too limiting in what it can and cannot receive. Your best option for a business address when working from home is a mailbox rental service.
A mailbox rental service is beneficial for home businesses for a variety of reasons, the first of which being privacy. By using your home address as your business address, your customers will know where you live. It’s a matter of security and personal comfort, but having your home address as your business address means your personal and professional life are one in the same.
While having all your mail, both personal and business related be delivered all to one place seems convenient, that isn’t always the case. When ordering packages to your home, they can often be left precariously sitting outside your house while you aren’t home and a PO box can’t even receive packages. By utilizing a mailbox rental service, you can rest assured knowing your package will be signed for and kept securely.
One of the most important reasons you should heavily consider a mailbox rental service for your home business is for search engine optimization. In order for your business to appear in the Google local search results page, you need a physical street address. A PO Box simply won’t work for this and having a weak web presence in today’s market is almost career suicide.
