How to Find Right Freelancing Job – 3 Easy Tips

1 Comment

  1. It’s one of the difficult issues that freelance workers face. How do you get paid on time without chasing your clients too much and run the risk of upsetting them. In the back of your mind you are thinking that if you chase payment your client will stop using you right?

    In my experience I have found that clients really do not mind if you chase them for money as long as you are polite about it. Give them the chance to pay before you get heavy! One of the tips I would suggest is to contact them by email and title you invoice as a Kind Reminder. This lets them know that the invoice is due and gives them a chance to pay. They may have overlooked it. Some companies only pay when people chase. It may be wrong but everyone is trying to manage cashflow. Don’t be embarrassed about it. Your client understands and to be honest, they respect people who run a good business like they do!

    Make friends with the accounts person! It may sound funny but they are only people just like you and me. When they think about paying people make sure that you are liked and that when they think of you, they want to prioritise you above the other bills to pay.

    Thank people that pay you on time. Send clients an email thanking them for a prompt payment. It makes them feel good. They are more likely to pay you on time again just to get a nice email. Think about it, most people only contact them when they haven’t been paid right? Most of the communication that they get it from people complaining about not being paid. If you are one of the very few people that make them feel good, guess what, they will want to pay you!

    Remove the personal side from it. If you deal with the company owner try and get your partner to handle your invoices. Even if you actually do the invoices, get your partner to email them on your behalf. That way your client feels that it’s someone else that’s chasing and will not link you to the negative side of payment chasing.

    Lastly, if you really need cash now you may want to offer a discount to clients who pay you on time or even greater discount to clients who pay you early. Try not to think about this as loosing money. Remember it costs you every day to pay for things with your cards!

    I hope this helps, please share your comments for other people to get tips as well.
