We Need to Talk About auto-text.

We Need to Talk About auto-text. It’s a Game Changer.  At one of our clients, for example, when we type “audaud” it produces THIS wording …

Dear Taina,    

During a recent audit of our accounts it was pointed out that Invoice 1234 ($352.00) appears to remain outstanding.

As we are not aware of any queries and this balance is considerably overdue would you please now 
* organise for its settlement by return mail or 
* contact me personally 
if there is anything that I can help with. 

It’s the wording we use for very old (and normally small) accounts that have not been actioned for a while.

Note the wording. It’s non-confrontational and someone else, not the author of the email, pointed out that the invoice “appears’ to be unpaid!

The only ‘variables’ are the salutation, invoice number and amount.  Quick. Easy. Done.  Next?

Use your computers auto-text feature to generate “standard” reminders – VERY quickly.

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.
