Four Ways To Make Your Home-Based Business Look More Professional

There are a million good reasons to work for yourself from home that to list them all would take up way more space than this article. You get the freedom to choose when you want to start work, when you want to stop for some food, what time you’d like to finish. You get to arrange your week around your family and any appointments that you may have, too. There’s no commute, other than to your own space in the home to work, and there is no one breathing down your neck until you get things done. In short, working from home is pretty great!

The problem is that working from home with your own business is that you don’t have the same professional outer exterior as the offices in which you once resided. The professional appearance that your business needs to be a legitimate one isn’t as strong as you’d like. A lot of people run successful businesses from home, but many of them so what they can to promote a professional exterior. With that in mind, here are four things you could be doing to ensure that your business looks professional.

A Professional Answering ServiceWith companies like VHQ, you could have a professional answering the phone for you to introduce your business. Not only will it look like you have a receptionist of your own who can answer your calls, you’ll be able to come off to your clients as if you have a bigger empire than the spare room at home. Having an answering service can make a huge difference!

A Business Website
Customers and clients will only trust websites that are legitimate. If you have a shared web domain, you’re going to look less than professional, as if you haven't bothered to pay for your own website and IT management. With your own domain that matches your business name, you’re going to be able to leave out the middleman and encourage your customers to trust you and know that you are invested in your website.

Branding That Is On Point
You want your business to look more professional and for that, you need to pay attention to your branding. Consistency matters the most here, and this is where you need your marketing and IT to be in line. The user experience must be so good that they come back again and again. From the moment people see your website and social media, they should be able to relate to you closely. You can only do this with consistent branding, which makes you look more professional in the eyes of your customers.

Get A Separate Phone Line
You don't want to give your personal address out to the rest of the world and that’s understandable. However, you do need to have a separate phone line for your business. You want people to get hold of you without turning up at your front door. Having an office address to use for your post is a good idea, but you do still need to have the right telephone line so the rest of the family doesn't answer for you!
