As a freelancer, you have a lot to do — and acquiring work usually comes first. But, don’t get too far behind the curve on getting paid. You need to cover business expenses and also have money to pay your bills. Therefore, it’s crucial to hunt down customer payments and develop a tracking system when invoices fail to get paid in a timely manner. Set a time frame for late payers and reach out after 30 days past the due date. If using phone or email, don’t be harsh or abrasive, which might cost you a valuable customer. Instead, subtle notification will put you back on the radar, and have those dollars flowing again.
