Get the best. Always pay the least.

How to overcome the uneasiness

of asking for the money due you.

Nobody ever questions the terms of payments to their cable company, HMO, or a lawyer who asks for a retainer, but when it comes to certain services you may render, your customers may think it's OK for you to do the work first and get paid when it's all done to their satisfaction. That's not the way things work.

I know how to converse on advertising matters and I know that my flat rate prices are extremely low and more than fair, but in order to get the work most times, I have to lay out a plan of action for you, which always includes a lot of creative ideas and information outlining what I intend to do for you and why. In fact, my sites offer unlimited consultation by phone or email. So after just one or several of these sessions that could add up to hours, I feel that I am giving you a wealth of information, creative ideas, encouragement, and guidance that you didn't possess before we met. That's my good faith contribution to our working partnership and yours would be to honor my policy and pay me at time of order.


I have a few sites built up on the internet that show you a lot of personal samples in so many categories, just to reassure you that I am up to the task in a variety of mediums. In my long career in advertising I have experienced clients who have suffered a number of personal emergencies, including economic upheavals affecting their businesses, and other factors that arise to compromise their ability or willillingness to pay for what I have done to that point or what I have done on a completed project. Although I am always sympathetic to someone's unfortunate situation, I cannot work and wonder if I'll become part of it. Therefore, for those reasons I have a strict policy of being paid before I begin the work.


In the beginning I was more laid-back about requiring payment because I wanted work at any cost. Since then, I have proven myself to be a reliable entity and regularly get inquiries from around the country and around the globe. While most people are ethical, getting paid for a job upfront assures that I am protected from those who are not. It's not a personal thing aimed at you; I have references that can be checked, I have been on the internet for many, many years without negative incidents, and I am no stranger to many respected industry people. I even offer you the ability to pay by PayPal as well as check. I know of no internet business that doesn't require payment before they ship, lawyers who receive retainers, cable bills, insurance and HMO invoices are all examples of payments required before receipt of services. I can be a great asset to you and your business doing what I do, all I ask is that you not give me a difficult time about my strict policy of being paid at time of order.


Once I'm asked about my payment terms or whenever I have to introduce this thorny subject, I usually direct them to this simple, three paragraph explanation that puts their minds at ease. I wouldn't worry about it if you're selling a product, people are used to paying for merchandise upfront. But if you're selling a service, you're welcome to borrow the language from my explanation and alter it to fit what you are offering.

Take calculated risks. That is quite different from being rash. George S. Patton
