The Coronavirus pandemic has left many business owners, new and experienced alike, wondering how to maintain their business remotely.

Maybe you’ve heard the terms “virtual office” or “virtual company.” It’s this exact concept which is allowing businesses to continue to thrive during quarantine, minimizing or eliminating both financial losses and losses in a loyal clientele.

Here, we’ll help you out and show you how to set up a virtual office with a few initial (and crucial) tips.

Set up a home office space and treat it like your work office during the quarantine.

Separating out space in your home to serve as your “office” for the duration of the pandemic is crucial. Sure, it might seem tempting to drink coffee and answer emails casually from your couch, but separating your workspace from your leisure areas will help you to better mentally prepare for your workday and increase productivity.

This doesn’t mean that your personal address has to become your business address, though. Instead, you can utilize virtual office address services to maintain your privacy and still receive business mail without leaving your home.

Gather what you’ll need and keep it at home with you.

In order to work effectively from home, it’s essential to function with a full toolkit. This means that you’ll need to transfer some resources from your work office to your home office. Do this carefully, as you’ll only want to make one trip to gather what you need and avoid leaving your house unnecessarily.

Manage your employees remotely.

Thanks to the recent surge in collaborative software, virtual office management is easier than ever. Instead of leaving your employees to their own devices, utilize project management or time tracking programs to hold them accountable and encourage organization-wide productivity from home.
