I have a policy about billing new clients and was wondering if anybody else does this. When I do work for the first time for a client I get paid either that day, or the next. After they have paid me for the first service, whatever that may be I will start them on another plan of their choosing. That may mean I get paid once at the end of the month, or every couple of weeks, or just send them a bill once the total gets high enough, whatever. There have probably only been a handful of times where I have not been paid upon first servicing an account. The one that sticks out in my mind from the past was that I was told up front that the client cuts their checks on the last day of the month. Does anybody do anything similar to that? I find that it helps me to find out who is going to be a big problem with money or what not in the future.
