Unpaid Invoice - Client Not Paying Invoice What to do? (Allan McKay Business of Design)
Client Not Paying Invoice What to do? (Allan McKay Business of Design)
Easily one of the top questions I get asked and definitely a reason why a lot of us blame our industry as not being as thriving as it is.
FACT: Everybody needs art and design services. There is no shortage.
FACT: There are shady clients, who might refuse to pay after the services are fulfilled. .. But that's every industry.
The reason it happens more in the art industry, is mostly the artist's fault. Because we aren't as versed in the business of design and creative industries. Instead we're afraid to ask about money up front, we're afraid to have our client sign any contracts (even though there are thousands or tens of thousands of dollars at stake).
I've been in the creative industry for 25+ years and I wanted to shed some light on what you can do BEFORE, DURING and AFTER a project to handle this situation.
Whether you're in film, commercials, design or games - or ANY creative industry. I want to teach you how to get PAID, and what to do if your client REFUSES to PAY YOU.
Finally - if you can take a moment to share this with others. That would mean the world to me. Thank you.
Other great recommendations is check out Chris Do over at The Futur on Value Based Pricing is a really great video, as well as anything from my buddy Mike Janda! Marie Forleo and others. There are only a few people really putting so much focus on the Business of Design and I think this is such a critical aspect of our creative artist and design industry!
