A Terrific Resource For The Entrepeneur

I'm a freelancer and a small business owner.  Sometimes I find the hardest part of this business is keeping track of who owes me money and who has already paid.  At least it was until I ran across this interesting bit of software from InvoiceIt.

This stuff is awesome.  It keeps track of all of my clients, my pricing lists and my invoices.  It even tracks orders from the original bid all the way through the final payout.  I can even use it to track which customers haven't hired me in a while so I can follow up and see if they have any new projects.

The best part about the program is you can download it for free at

http://www.invoicesoftware4free.com

When you visit the site, be sure to tell Bernard that Larry Palmer recommended you.  He is a great guy and would really be happy to know I sent you to him.


Setting Up InvoiceIt

The initial setup of the program is done in 6 easy steps:


General Settings
Document Layout - Header
Document Layout - Detail
Document Layout - Footer; Miscellaneous settings
Document Customization - Descriptions
Document Customization - Miscellaneous


All of these setting can be adjusted in the walk through wizard so it is virtually impossible to mess this up.  InvoiceIt even offers an import and export function so you can use your existing XLS or CSV files.

The Lookup Lists function enables you to perform customer analysis according to demographics so that you can target future advertising and sales while the Data Backup function insures that you will never lose important invoices or orders again.

Why You Need Invoicing Software

There are many reasons why you need a good invoicing program. One of the most important is accountability. For the entrepeneur, making a mistake and double billing a client could cause hard feelings and a loss of future income from that client. Software like the one offered by InvoiceIt is a great way to avoid those problems.

Accountability also means you know where your money is coming from. It is easy to get confused at the end of the week while trying to remember who you did work for. For years, I kept little notes on scrap paper, sent myself emails, even tried a few spreadsheets and it always seemed like the notes got lost or the files were too complicated to manage. With the InvoiceIt software, I don't have to rely on my memory. It is all on the record from the first bid to the final payout. I can run a search and find exactly what I am looking for right when I need it.

Customer Retention... Many of my clients will contact me for a job and then it may be a month or more before I hear from them again. With InvoiceIt, I can keep track of who has made contact and who I might want to check in with. You would be surprised how many extra jobs you can gain just by asking for work.

Demographics... InvoiceIt allows me to keep a little information about each of my clients, like the type of writing they buy, quantities they buy in, themes they use a lot and if they pay quickly. This is great if I happen to have some excess articles on a particular subject as I can shoot out an email to clients who have used that genre of articles in the past and, often times, make a sale on work that would otherwise be a loss.

Basically, InvoiceIt makes sense for me because it helps me to run my freelance business in a more profitable manner. Anything that makes me more money is a good thing in my book. As a free download, it makes even more sense to try it.

Great looking invoice software guidelines to help small businesses manage their finances, nowadays it seems like everyone is in need of help with their big excel spreadsheets of invoices. I referenced these before moving onto the programs that I found here.

This invoice software is useful, but we eventually upgraded to http://nirvaha.com/invoice-software.html. It's quick, simple, and straightforward. It lets us instantly create multiple invoices from one excel document.
