Get Paid for Your Services Faster and Know that it’s Not as Difficult as you may Think
Ask for the Money Up Front
This is simply the best way to do it, however, you can’t blame them if they are suspicious and wonder if they will get what they have paid for. Nevertheless, that’s not for you to worry about, IF they came to you. If you go to them, then this method may or may not work. Imagine you ask someone to support your business then give you the money before you do the work, that’s kind of an insult and it looks like you are desperate for money. Treat each situation accordingly
Offer a Discount if they Pay Up Front
I would not give them more than a 20% discount. Keep in mind whatever you offer them is what they are going to expect each time
Tell them New Clients Have to Pay up Front
This is a good rule but only if they come to you. If you go to them or if it’s a corporation, you should not expect to be paid upfront, you can offer independents a “new client discount” if they pay up front.
