Now that seems like a simple question, am I right? You might answer that you prefer the independence of working for yourself, or heading up a company for the sake of accomplishment. That would seem as a likely answer and rightly so.
Well as we see it around here, the answer is: To Make Money! When it comes right down to it the only reason that makes sense is that you are in business to make money. So you like to get paid, and on time right? Seems only fair. Here is a little clue that you will want to write down and keep this number handy: 8668264101. Find out why below.
However in these difficult financial times that we are in and it would appear as though we will be seeing the strife for some period of time to come, before the worm turns and happy days are here again. So lets talk about how to get paid for what you do or what you sell. Be it online or in a brick and mortar store, in order to pay your bills on time, you need to collect what is due you.
That is the overall thrust of this article. How do you get paid? Well some of your clients and customers are able to make payment with order and with instant electronic transfer companies like PayPal, Xoom, and others, it is relatively easy to get paid.
Now how about those customers that you give terms to? What happens when they fall behind in their normal billing and payment cycle? Well the answer to that is the slow pay or no pay customers can virtually run you out of business if you do not get a handle on it properly.
You need to consider a bill collecting agency or company that is efficient in the business of collecting debts. By outsourcing your debt collecting to a professional you are able to not only collect the funds due you, there is a good chance that you will be able to keep the client as a future customer as well.
Every company runs through cycles where it is difficult for them to pay on time, and once you have collected your debts and the client “your customer” gets back on their feet, they will likely be coming back to your for more of whatever your product is.
At that time you may want to change your terms and put them on COD until such time that they can demonstrate that they would be able to have a credit line again with your company. By using this outsourced service agency to do the debt collecting, you will have saved face in that you did not need to get personally involved with the client and there should be no hurt feelings from having said something that might have been taken personally.
One method that you will do well to look into is to have an attorney do the bill collecting for you. A legal firm will not be going outside the law and making idle threats to your client, like some of the hard sell bill collectors might.
