When you’re looking for a virtual address, you may consider a lot of important factors: services available, cost, etc. But location can be one of the most critical things to consider when deciding where to set up virtual shop.
The San Francisco Bay Area is a thriving and vibrant place, filled with opportunity. If you haven’t considered using the Bay Area as your virtual address, here are three reasons why you definitely should.
Access to thousands of potential clients
The Bay Area is home to millions of people – 7.44 million to be exact. So if you’re in a B2C business, your potential client base is positively enormous. Even if you’re in a B2B business, the Bay Area still brings you plenty of revenue opportunities: it is home to the 2nd most Fortune 500 companies in the world, and the San Francisco-Oakland metro area boasts more than 100,000 small businesses.
Plenty of office space is available
Because of the population and vitality of the Bay Area, there is a multitude of different virtual office spaces available to you. You could choose an impressive location like a skyscraper in Downtown San Francisco, or a more functional workspace like an office park in the suburbs. You have the freedom to choose the type of office space that works best for your business.
It’s a financial and cultural hotspot
There is money to be spent in the Bay Area – according to Forbes magazine, the top two wealthiest metro areas in America are in the Bay Area (San Jose-Sunnyvale-Santa Clara and San Francisco-Oakland).
The whole area in general has high incomes, even higher than the state average. If you’re looking to make money with your business (and who isn’t?), the Bay Area is the place to be.
There are many economic reasons to call the Bay Area home, but on a more personal level, it’s just a fantastic place to live. The Bay Area is one of the most culturally diverse areas in the country (possibly the world), and there are a multitude of exotic restaurants, museums, amusement parks and sports teams throughout.
No matter what your background or interests are, you can find something exciting and relevant to you in the Bay Area. So why wouldn’t you want to live here and do business here?
