Chasing clients for late payments can get uncomfortable. It can also have a huge impact on freelancers' cash flow, as freelancers work from project to project.
Some tips can help to ensure getting paid faster without engaging in awkward conversations with your clients.
Some customers will intentionally delay payments indefinitely, but others just forget.
Some invoicing tools can help to automate payment reminders. You could also write a personalised reminder message when creating an invoice and define when it should be sent to your clients.
As a subcontractor, you may have expenses that your clients will reimburse after you finish the project, such as a freelance editor hiring a graphic designer for visual content or a proofreader to improve on its grammar. Expense automation solutions can ensure that you get paid faster.
It works like this:
You can use online signature software to sign your contract.
Instead of encouraging early payments with a discount, use a late fee for creating an incentive. Clients who intend to pay on time won't mind signing a contract with a late fee.
How to include late payments in your contract:
Try to prevent late payments by examining a customer's profile and avoid working with clients similar to that one. If a new client is too similar to that client profile, it's better to pass on such projects.
If you have a personal webpage or social media profile, select and add video testimonials of your ideal customers, thereby turning away companies that you don't consider ideal.
By building your brand, you can get more gigs and become selective in who you work with. As a result, you can stand out and win more respect.
With a solid personal brand, you can stop selling your time and invest in more scalable ways of earning money, such as launching an online course or blogging.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
