There are so many benefits to running your business from home; you can be a lot more flexible with your time, you don’t need to pay for a big office and loads of employees and you can spend more time with your family. However, there are some downsides. One of the biggest challenges that home businesses face is not looking professional. It’s important to consumers that the companies they deal with are professional and they often don’t get that sense from a business that is run from home. But that doesn’t mean you can’t find success, you just need to use some of these tips to make yourself appear bigger than you are.

 

Get A Proper Phone Number

If customers are calling your business on your personal home phone number or your mobile, that doesn’t give them a great impression. What you need is a proper, toll free business number that they can call. You can easily buy 1300 numbers online and then have them redirected to your personal number. As far as the customers know, they’re calling up a big company with loads of employees. Having a free number is also a massive bonus because people don’t want to be paying loads of money every time they need to call your company, especially if they’re already ringing up with a complaint.

 

A Custom Website Domain

Using a free website creator to build your site is a great way to save money, but it’s also a pretty good way to tell customers that you’re running the business on your own from home. As soon as people see a domain name with the website builder’s name in it, it screams amateur. It doesn’t even cost that much to get yourself a proper registered domain name for your business but it does no end of good for your image. Most of the free website builders have an option to buy your own personalised domain name so you won’t have to make any other changes to the site. You can also get a business email address thrown in as well.

 

Business Cards

When somebody sees a business card, they immediately assume that the person is fairly professional. Even though anybody can get them printed up, people still associate them with business success. They’re especially useful if you’re networking, which is an important part of business. If you meet somebody and they ask you for your details, it doesn’t look good if you have to ask them for a pen and paper.

A Business Address

Having a business address that’s the same as your own address is another thing that makes you look unprofessional. Obviously, you don’t want to move into an office, that defeats the point of starting a home business. So, what do you do? Luckily, there are some companies out there that will rent you a mailbox in an office building and then redirect the mail to you. The customers think that they’re sending things to a big office, they don’t know that it’s just you at home.

Making your home business look like it’s a big company with a giant office building and loads of employees will help you to get more customers.
