Anatomy of a Great Invoice
Just click on the image below to zoom in and see details of what makes a great invoice. Even if you use templates within your accounting software, you can incorporate these "body parts"!!
Don't forget the impact of your subject line or envelope!
Whether you send invoices via email or mail, don't assume the customer will recognize the correspondence as a bill they need to pay. Make sure that they do!
Invest in rubber stamps. Use it on your standard envelope, even a window envelope that clearly looks like a bill. Options for rubber stamps include.....Bill Enclosed....Statement Enclosed....Past Due, etc.
For an emailed invoice, use the words invoice, bill, order invoice and/or invoice number in your subject line.
