Quickbooks and printed QuickBooks Checks
are not just for large businesses and nonprofit organizations; most businesses use QuickBooks Pro
an excellent option for small business owners. Utilize this QuickBooks program to help maintain a professional image, streamline estimates and invoicing, save money, and enhance your customer relationships. QuickBooks checks are designed to work seamlessly with the software to make writing checks easier than ever before and are as economical as they are useful.
Presenting a professional image is one of the most important steps in becoming an established and preferred business. Customers want to know they are safe in bringing people into their homes and that they can expect to be deal with professionals who are trustworthy. While no one thing can promise this to a customer, all of the little details in the way you present yourself and your business are important. While it is doubtful that a client will see your checks, they will likely benefit from your QuickBooks program in other ways such as the estimates and invoices
you can produce with the software.
The other companies you work with as well as your own employees will see the checks you use. Your QuickBooks checks can be customized with your company logo and business name. Business checks are also available in a variety of colors that may compliment the color scheme you have chosen for your business. All of these little details will add up over time and create an image of professionalism.
Estimates are the first tangible contact a prospective customer will have with your business. While first impressions are certainly important, your customer will likely be comparing your estimates with those of your competitors. While it is certainly possible to give rough estimates on the back of an envelope, or other paper you may have in your vehicle, a printed and itemized estimate will give potential customers a better impression and fuller understanding of what the costs include.
The final impression a customer will be left with is not the work you have completed but the invoice you send them for that work. While it is certainly important that the work be completed in a timely and competent manner, it is also important that customers be given a detailed invoice for their records.
QuickBooks offers a number of invoicing options including progress invoices and final invoices. A progress invoice allows you to submit an invoice to your client at certain stages of completion. This is especially useful for large projects such as plumbing a new house or renovating an existing home. Final invoices are simply the final bill you will submit to the customer and offer them an itemized view of the expenses they incurred and also offer you the opportunity to highlight any savings you may have been able to offer them.
While the initial cost of the QuickBooks program may seem intimidating for a small business owner, it is worth the investment. It will allow you or one of your employees to manage your accounts much more efficiently – and may even remove the need to hire a professional accountant. It will also make it easier to keep track of business expenses and other items that may help reduce the taxes you owe each quarter. Finally, QuickBooks checks can be ordered online very inexpensively. You can also save time by ordering your QuickBooks checks online and as we all know, time is money.
Happy customers are repeat customers who will also tell their friends and families about you. By using QuickBooks, you will be able to keep a record of the customers you have seen as well as their contact information from when you entered them into the invoice portion of the QuickBooks software. You can use this information to send out holiday cards, maintenance reminders, or coupons for service or product discounts. Customer relationships begin with your first contact and contract but they are built over time with consistent effort on your part. It is much easier to keep an existing customer than it is to find new customers.
