If you are planning to start your own company then the first step would be getting a primary business address. A business needs an address to receive a license, have an SEO presence, and accept mail. You have several options such as using your home address, purchasing a P.O. box, or getting a prestigious location at the inner harbor.
BUSINESS HOME ADDRESS
You could use your home address, but then you will have customers coming to your home at all hours of the day. Homes should remain as a private sanctuary to get away from the daily work routine. What if you have an unhappy customer or someone trying to serve your legal documents banging on your front door? Now, they know where you live and will be at your door every now and then! You could start your business using your home address but it will be better for the business and for your family to eventually move the business address to a more commercial location. As of now Google is no longer accepting home addresses as the business address for SEO listings.
A P.O. box can be used as a business address. However, your business may require a physical office to be inspected to receive a license. Additionally, you can only pick up your mail during the scheduled hours of your US Post Office. That is very inconvenient with a business owner’s busy schedule! As of now Google is no longer accepting P.O. boxes as the business address for SEO listings.
A BETTER BUSINESS ADDRESS SOLUTION
Today a business’s SEO presence can make a huge impact on the overall growth of the business. Signing a commercial lease for office space that is going to lock you in for 5 years could be very costly. Furthermore, it may not be in an ideal area due to budget constraints.
