FreshBooks makes managing your own business easy!

posted by Kristin Lynch

I've been using FreshBooks for a few months now after switching from MacFreelance. I love it. It allow me to easily and quickly set up the client/time/invoicing/expense management portion of my freelance business so I can spend more time focusing on my clients and their needs. Set up your free account to get started. Check out the very reasonable pricing chart. You won't pay at all until you enter your fourth client into the system. At that point, you'll be charged $19/month, with rates increasing at a fair rate dependent on client numbers. The most you'll pay for the service is $149/month - and that's with 5,000 customers!

What can you do with FreshBooks?
  • Maintain your client information
  • Track your time
  • Allow team members to add their time and other details
  • Allow clients to view their own invoices
  • Create custom invoices with your own branding
  • Customize e-mails, late notices, etc.
  • View and print reports
  • Manage expenses, including one-time and recurring charges
  • Manage your time, view your invoices and add expenses using the iPhone app
  • Send your invoices via e-mail or snail mail (snail mail includes a statement, payment stub, and window return envelope)
Those are just a few of the features of FreshBooks. Go here to set up an account now and get more details. I'm still discovering very handy features! I also like how FreshBooks maintains its customer relationships. As soon as I signed up, I received an e-mail from a customer representative thanking me for signing up and providing me with their full contact details in case I have questions or need help.

I also received a sample invoice in the mail showing me how my invoices will look if I choose to send them that way - including a payment stub and return envelope. If you decide to go that route, you just pay for an allotment of 'stamps' and they handle the rest.

FreshBooks also provides a toll free number, online support form, a blog and customer forums - all designed to help you find the information you need quickly and easily. Their system even provides a report card so you can see how you're doing. You'll need to be on the system for a full fiscal quarter before you can view any data, however.

I'm very impressed with the system. It allows me to easily and professionally maintain the financial data of my new business, providing me with more time to manage my customer relationships and the work I do for them. I even ENJOY using my business management system. When have you ever heard such a thing? Go here to set up an account now!
