The Power Of Bullet Points In Reminders

When you
* State The Facts,
* Use Bullet Points and
* Keep Your “Threat” Vague
it makes your email or letter easier to read and is generally more successful in eliciting payments from or at least some sort of response from a debtor.

We frequently use similar wording as in the email below as it
* uses all those points mentioned,
* is polite and
* to the point.

Dear Mr Smith,

I refer to the following two matters, previous email reminders sent and phone messages left.

1. these invoices were raised in May,
2. our credit facility only offers 14-day payment terms,
3. payment of these fees will be 90days overdue next week
recovery of these accounts has now been given to me.

If there is
* something preventing you from settling these invoices in the near future,
* something that you need from us, or
* you would like to organise to “pay off’ this debt,
please let us know.

But, if none of the above apply, we do not hear from you by the end of next week and they remain unpaid I will be obliged to revert to policy. I trust that that will not become necessary.

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.
