In it, I shared lots of language you can experiment with when answering questions like, “What’s your hourly rate?” or “How much is a logo?” and what to say when a payment is late — a pretty common occurrence these days.
Here’s one example that many people seemed to appreciate: what to say when the project isn’t quite finished but you want to submit your invoice because you know it will take a while to get your money or just because you’re in the midst of a cash flow crunch.
I suggested something along the lines of, “We’re winding down and here’s what’s left to do: [list the details]. I’d like to get the final invoice into your system. Does that work on your end?”
Have you tried this and how has it worked? Do you have any more suggestions for this situation?
