Hello Everyone! Welcome to Episode 11 of Legals and Biz with Riz! Today, I’ll be talking about 6 Tips For Getting Paid As A Freelancer.

What does everyone love? Getting paid!! So here are Foundd’s 6 Tips for Getting Paid as A Freelancer. Bring on the dough...⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  1. Invoice right away. Don’t be shy. You run a business, friend!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
  2. Ask for prompt payment. Don’t have those 30 day terms that keep you sweating as rent day sneaks closer. Keep the terms short and sweet, we’re talking 7 to 14 days, tops.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
  3. Make on time payments worthwhile. Give an early bird discount of say 5%; discounts are strong motivators.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
  4. Make it easy for them to pay you. Offer up credit card or PayPal links to your Xero or Wave accounts so it’s all paid with the click of a button. Click! Cha-ching!
  5. Make sure you get at least 50% up front before work starts so everyone knows this business is being taken seriously. And, well, so you don’t get ripped off. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
  6. Make sure you get paid before releasing the work. The last thing you want is a work-and-run! So not cool…⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Communicating these terms during your discovery call, then also including them in your quote/proposal, Services Agreement, and invoice will ensure the client has fully understood and read the terms at least once (or hopefully, all 4 times). Might seem a bit overkill, but trust. Better safe than sorry, we say. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
