sms reminders

a text message is almost impossible to ignore!Principle #3 – Become Very Hard To Ignore is the all-important principle if you want to be successful chasing slow payers to encourage them to pay your account more quickly. Sometimes easier said than done especially when your letters, emails and phone messages aren’t being answered … so … send them a text message or 2 or 3 …. from your computer!!
And get the replies back to you on your computer as an email.

Sending a text message/sms can take forever if you do so from your own mobile phone. My 16 year old son’s a whizz at it. His thumbs seem to fly over the small buttons on his phone, but I’m slower, much, much slower, until I found out how to send sms’s from my computer! Now, we’re talking.

 
TWO QUESTIONS
1 Have you got a mobile phone? Probably.
2 Do you immediately check your voice messages when they’re left for you? Do you dial in, wait patiently and listen to the message left? Probably not.

Most people check them when they feel like it and if it’s something they don’t want to respond to, they’ll ignore it.
But SMS’s are different. They’re instant. Can’t be ignored. Read straight away. They’re Hard To Ignore.

There are countless companies that can do this for us but I’ll tell you about the one that WE use. Debtors that have ignored our reminder letters, emails and phone messages are responding to sms’s.

We now use SMSit (updated February 2017)
Watch this 33 second video to see just HOW easy it is to use. Sending sms’s by computer has made a dramatic impact in our ability to get those hard-to-get-to account customers to respond. Try it out for yourself.

Good Luck.

About the Author:

Have you ever wondered why a client does business with you and then ignores your invoice like they had no intention of paying it in the first place or they treat you like their own personal line of credit, leaving YOU dangling, waiting months for their payment? Unfortunately this situation is all too common and can even be puzzling for the most experienced business owner. If you’ve ever had to handle outstanding accounts or you are just so over non-payers, then we can help. Real-world skills, solutions, tips & strategies to get more accounts paid on time, and, most importantly, how to maintain customer goodwill while keeping YOUR cash flow in the positive. You will find the blog posts helpful but to get real results, contact us by using any of the forms on this site, by email or by phone. I’ve been involved in the management of accounts for over 30 years, heard every excuse in the book, can spot a non-payer at 20 paces. Finance Companies in the 70s (systematic, tough), professional firms in the 80s (no systems, too gentle) and, since then, just about every other sort of business you can think of. I’ve written books on the topic, spoken all over the place about it and the blog in this website is my way of “giving back”. I hope you find it helpful.
