Tip of the Day – Four Steps to Collecting Unpaid Bills

Filed under: Tip of the Day

Get Deadbeats to PayDistributors are finding it increasingly difficult to get clients to pay their bills on time. Here are four strategies to employ when trying to get deadbeat customers to pay their bills.

  1. Get your systems in order. Make sure bills are going to the right person at your client’s company. Often, invoices go unpaid because they end up on the wrong desk.
  2. Follow up frequently. Immediately after an invoice due date, pick up the phone or send an e-mail. At this point, it should be a friendly message – almost a way to expand the relationship – but you’ll make a point, as well.
  3. Show up in person. With true deadbeat clients, phone messages and e-mails simply won’t work. Don’t be afraid to show up on their doorstep asking for payment.
  4. Use fear. Nobody wants to incur the extra cost of legal representation, but a simple lawyer’s note can go a long way toward receiving at least a piece of what is owed to you.

    I want to express some thakns to this writer for rescuing me from such a incident. As a result of surfing throughout the internet and obtaining views that were not helpful, I was thinking my life was over. Being alive without the presence of answers to the issues you have solved all through your entire website is a serious case, and the kind that could have negatively affected my entire career if I had not noticed your site. Your ability and kindness in handling all the things was very useful. I am not sure what I would have done if I hadn’t come across such a solution like this. It’s possible to at this time relish my future. Thanks a lot very much for the expert and effective help. I will not hesitate to suggest your web sites to any person who needs and wants care about this subject.
