Get Paid Faster

The larger the invoice, the more I want my corpoate client to know what's going on. The last thing I want is a large invoice sitting on their desk for several weeks because they're not sure what I'm doing. A brief note like this lets them know everything is underway, progress is being made, and allows them to sign the invoice an send it to accounting.

In this case, we were helping Steve get re-employed. This went by mail, but these days I use e-mail. If it's a large invoice, I e-mail it with a cover letter, then mail a hard copy. This is a safety-net strategy. If the e-mail gets lost, the hard copy is a reminder.

Dear Jeff:

I think things are going extremely well with Steve. As you can see, we have spent several hours together and made significant progress.

Steve is very easy to work with. Quite bright and seems to know a little bit about everything, including marketing himself. He has put together an exceptionally good resume and is fast completing all the other assignments I've given him.

I expect our work to go very well, and will keep you posted on further developments. Please let me know if you need to hear further from me.

Sincerely yours,

William S. Frank
