One of my former clients took a while to pay my services.
It was an agony, honestly. The client did not update me every time the deadline payment past.
I am the type of person who ensures that my payments are due. On the other hand, I believe that if someone owes me, it is his or her responsibility to update me on the payments. I really do not like following up. In the first place, I was not the one who has a due.
So what do you do when this happens? A recent webinar with a Filipino lawyer gave these tip: PROTECT YOURSELF.
On my end, I did the following to follow-up the pay for my services:
In the tips that I gave, the underlying lesson is that you should have the contact details of your client. If worst had come, I would have called the client.
I saw in a Facebook post previously that says “Freelancer does not mean my services are free.” (I could find the post now, but this blog post say about it too). Well, I don’t mean to hurt anyone, but that’s the reason I call myself as a virtual assistant or a virtual professional.
