Hassle or not, invoicing is a must to keep your business afloat and thriving. It should be done accurately and efficiently, but more importantly, it should be done more frequently than many businesses are in the practice of doing it.
Are you one of them? Could you boost your cash flow with one simple change in the way you invoice?
We get it, we know that invoicing manually is a burden, and that’s why you’re only doing it once a month, right? But what if we told you there’s a solution to ease the hassles of invoicing? What if we told you that it could be done more often, more accurately, and more efficiently … freeing up valuable time, ensuring no mistakes that could sour the relationships with your customers, appealing to each customer’s mailing preference (direct or digital), and even improving your cashflow?
Would you be interested? Of course, you would! Who wouldn’t want to save time and stress, satisfy customers, and increase cash flow? …
If you’re like many small businesses, you probably only invoice once a month, manually, and via snail mail. And while this certainly gets the job done, there’s a better way to handle your invoicing.
Top 3 Reasons to Change Your Current Invoicing Procedures
1. Get Paid Quicker
Why wait for the same time each month to do your invoicing? Think of it like this: the quicker you can get your invoices sent out, the quicker you can get paid.
2. Prevent Costly Errors
We don’t have to tell you that invoicing errors can prove costly. Not only will it slow you down and cost you time in fixing the error, but it could also potentially sour the relationship with your customer, ultimately costing you their business.
3. Appeal to Customers
Customers enjoy choosing how they receive communications from you. While many people are still going the physical mail route, times are changing. Many customers are choosing digital invoices so they can quickly and easily upload them to their accounting system and process payment electronically, which is a win for you, since it means funds coming in faster.
