Did you know that Invoice Ninja has some incredible features that can help you as a freelancer perform like a real-life ninja – a good one, of course – and be super helpful for your business?
Spend time wisely
Ninjas are dedicated to their craft, so they spend their time wisely to hone their skills. They focus on improvement and don’t get distracted, which leads them to excel at what they do.
For freelancers and small businesses, to free yourself up, it makes sense to outsource essential but repetitive tasks that swallow up your valuable time, or you are not an expert at so you can focus on your craft and loyally serving your clients.
That’s why Invoice Ninja takes care of your invoicing so you can focus on doing what you love (and what makes you money).
We’d say that’s time well spent!
Being a fearless freelancer doesn’t mean you don’t experience fear.
We can all get nervous when working with a new client, delivering work for the first time or sending off our first-ever invoice. We want to get everything right.
Being fearless means you recognize and accept fear; that way, you can take heed of it and apply the necessary steps to move past it.
It’s about having a growth mindset and, at the same time, being aware of and confident in our abilities.
And the best way to get good at it – is to practice it.
So do your best work and, with the help of Invoice Ninja, send off your branded, professionally laid out invoice containing ALL the correct information (and get paid) with ease!
Ninjas are loyal to their cause – and trustworthiness is fundamental to any true ninja. A ninja must be able to execute the task assigned to them. There is no room for error or oversight.
Likewise, to win and retain clients, freelancers need to be seen as reliable, dependable and trustworthy.
That’s where professional invoice templates come into play.
Well-formatted, error-free, branded professional invoices show clients you mean business and signal trust.
Invoice Ninja offers free invoice templates, and what’s more, each invoice template can be customized with your company logo, branding and other detailed formatting customizations.
Ninjas are always on alert and aware of their surroundings. They know exactly what is going on in any given situation so that they can react quickly and efficiently. They are never backed into a corner.
As a freelancer, you need to be aware of what’s happening in your business, what needs to be done, and when. These days, things move fast, and it’s easy to lose track of things – especially cash flow.
With Invoice Ninja, you can get alerts when a customer views and pays your invoice to help you keep your cash flow on track. You can also automatically send reminders at whatever intervals work best for you!
Our dynamic dashboard data allows you to view revenue, invoices sent, recent activity and lots more at a glance. Plus, you can easily track inventory levels using our inventory management feature that automatically reduces stock and lets you know when stocks run low.
Ninjas are always prepared for whatever scenario they find themselves in – this gives them the upper hand over any competition.
A savvy freelancer will have systems and processes in place to ‘combat’ day-to-day as well as less regular client and business transactions that may come up.
For example, it’s advisable to have a process in place for onboarding clients and client calls as well as having proper invoice and payroll systems in place – especially one with a huge range of language options for overseas customers, like Invoice Ninja!
The more top-notch processes you have, the better, as it will mean your business and ways of working are more streamlined and efficient – leaving less room for error or any unpleasant surprises.
You’ll also stand out amongst the competition.
Ninjas are consistent. In their training, in their daily tasks, and how they ‘show up’.
They are super disciplined and can think quickly on their feet.
This is an excellent trait for freelancers to follow. If you are consistent, you are also seen as reliable, and if you consistently show up and do a great job, you will soon gain a reputation for excellence.
This ‘consistency’ and ‘discipline’ can also show itself in your processes. For example, with Invoice Ninja, you can also save time by automatically billing long-term clients with recurring invoices – taking consistency to a ‘whole nother level’.
All these ninja traits, when applied diligently and consistently, build on one another, making you a sensei-level freelancer who never needs to worry about snatching victory from the jaws of defeat!
So, if you want to boost your freelance ninja skills, attract clients and get paid on time – try Invoice Ninja today.
