There’s something about January that makes us rethink all our habits and practices, particularly those that pertain to business and finance. We strive to make changes to be better in our businesses and our lives. As the small business owner or independent contractor, the competition out there can make such changes difficult to determine. We’re made to stay on our toes and make modifications that will give our company the edge, but how can you decide what change to make, when, or where?
Luckily, there is a simple solution for many such issues and it is without a large investment of time or money. You might even enjoy yourself!
I like to call it the three-fer. You get three amazing results with one super simple step.
Step 1: Sign up for Invoice Home
Boom! Done, end of story. For those of you who don’t like to read, that’s all you need to know. But if you interested in the hearing about the potential results, stick around to find out how Invoice Home, an online software system that generates 100s of free invoice templates, can benefit you and your company.
- Improve Efficiency:
For small business owners and independent contractors, a large part of your day is spent doing tasks that are separate from your actual project. Administrative and financial paperwork can easily take much needed time away from more important duties. However, these clerical chores still need to get done.
Invoicing can be one of those loathsome, time-consuming tasks and the more you hate to do something, the more likely you are to put it off (which just leads to more wasted time). But with Invoice Home, you can literally create and email an invoice to a client in under a minute. So after shaking your new client’s hand or receiving an email from them, you can almost instantly shoot them an invoice without disturbing your flow of work.
With all of this free time there’s nothing stopping you from acquiring more clients, researching new business tactics or maybe just shutting down early for the day.
- Spend less money:
Money is another thing can’t be wasted by startups and small businesses. You’ve probably put a large portion of your own money into this company or project and every little saving helps. This is where Invoice Home scores again, as their system has 2 different plans. The first is the Free Plan, which is great for those of you who are just starting out and don’t have a ton of clients so far and aren’t invoicing that much (yet). You have full access to an account where you can create and email invoices as long as you’re under a grand total of $1000/month.
And when you start to pick up steam and make enough cash to exceed $1000/month, it’s only $5/month after that. So if once a month you have to go without your grande gingerbread latte or that last pint of your favorite microbrew, just know it’s for the betterment of your business.
- Stand out from the crowd:
When you first started out, you probably took a long time to decide on a logo or design that would represent your company. So why shouldn’t your invoices reflect a bit about your company and your own personality? Here’s where Invoice Home comes through once again. Instead of standard black and white invoices which look like every other one out there, they offer 100s of free invoice templates which are carefully crafted by graphic designers. They provide a bunch of different themes, moods and colors to choose from. And then to top it off, you can add your own logo or photo on the invoices.
When you email invoices or quotes to your customers, they definitely won’t forget who you are. And if you can stand out from the crowd, chances are you’ll get paid first.
There you have it folks, one step and you’re on your way to more time, more money and more personality. Are you going to take it? See how far the results carry you and your business for years to come.
