When your business sends a bill and a client responds to it, don’t take that payment for granted. Make sure and send a quick “Thank you for payment” note. Think of all the hassle your client saved you by not being delinquent. No awkward late notices, no creditors to deploy, no bad vibes. Just money. They deserve a thank you! It only takes a second. This written record is useful for both your client and you.
Make sure and include:
- The client’s name. Double check the spelling. An error appears here undermines confidence in your business.
- The amount paid
- The check number or credit card confirmation
- The date received
- Outstanding balance if applicable
