I’m certainly not a photograph that is extremely high demand but even with my rather small number of clients, things can sometimes get quite hectic.
I have seen it myself how all the managing and organisation necessary for a business slowly tried to take over so I found myself in a position where I couldn’t find time for my actual work which of course is photography!
And this is when I came across electronic invoicing. Let me just tell you a little bit about it.
Almost any business owner will know about the hassles invoicing customers. You will likely send an invoice together with your products be it photographs or whatever else you may be selling. Then you will have to wait days if not weeks until your client finally paid you.
In some ways, this is very inefficient, if not to say very outdated!
See it like this: if you want to send someone a message today where you know that both of you have a computer, would you send a letter or postcard? Of course not! You can do the same and much better if you just send a quick email.
And this is the same principle that is at work with electronic invoicing. Rather than snail-mailing your invoice what you do is you email an e invoice. Your invoice is then digitally processed and sent to your client. Your client will automatically confirm that he received the invoice and can also process it instantly. In other words, no mailing of paper and no days of waiting like in the past!
For my business, e-invoicing made really a big difference. It’s not only easier and faster than old-fashioned invoices, it’s also incredibly easy and almost foolproof for yourself and your clients.
