Re: Asking a client to pay early?

I'm sure that's true. I've always dealt with the CEO or owner. And it's never to a committee, never with proposals.

Of course, there are companies that will only pay if billed by invoice, and pay...

Re: Asking a client to pay early?

That all depends on your business and industry.

Many clients I consult with work in industries that work on a 30/60/90 net (invoice) system. Many have an accounts payable and accounts receivable...

Re: Asking a client to pay early?

I think you can ease your immediate cash flow needs - without looking weak - by announcing to current clients that you are changing your payment process to the pay ahead model. I think make it...

Re: Asking a client to pay early?

The best way to avoid late payments is to get paid up front.

I've been doing that for years. No exceptions. If you get paid up front, you'll never have to demand anything.

Like Bizgrower said,...

Re: Asking a client to pay early?

It's a bad idea to do it now and you will be giving up a lot of leverage to your client by announcing your desperation.

This is something you offer in your contract before work begins--not after...

Re: Asking a client to pay early?

I get paid before I do any work. I don't have trouble with clients paying.

Re: Asking a client to pay early?

What's the old quote from Dan Kennedy?

"Wealthy people get paid before they work; the poor get paid after they do work."

Re: Asking a client to pay early?

This (I think it's called an electronic invoice here in Finland or something), or then just enforce a late payment fee/penalty. We've got laws that state we're allowed to impose penalties for paying...

Re: Asking a client to pay early?

Get new clients to pay ahead. ex. Pay on the first of June for the month of June. No payment, no service.

Re: Asking a client to pay early?

If I not mistaken.. (certainly in the UK ) and if I have not misunderstood the thread. But can you not get the customers on a monthly standing order if it is monthly (ie) x amount comes out of there...

Re: Asking a client to pay early?

Let them know about a late fee if the invoice isn't taken care of by day 30. 1% per day -- then enforce it.

What you're mentioning is a bad idea IMO. You're going to be showing your hand, and...

Re: How To Price Your Online Business?

Most buyers would look at how much your ACTUAL PROFITS ARE and the following factors:

Re: How To Price Your Online Business?

Some more details would be incredibly helpful. :D

But yeah, 2-to-3 years net is one starting point. Much also depends on how much the new owner has to do in order to keep the money coming in; is...

Re: My next move?

Do you have a contract with the agency?
Any covenant not to compete?
Is the owner the litigious type?

Those considerations aside, you do have to get your own book
of business. Different field...

Re: My next move?

Thanks so much for your reply! Currently, agency affiliated clients are 85% of my business. I'll definitely try to diversify and I'm glad I'm not crazy for being worried.

You're not crazy...just...

Re: My next move?
