4 Tactics that Electricians Can Use for Collecting Debt

As an electrician, you are responsible for maintaining electrical systems in residential and commercial buildings. Without proper electricity, people’s day to day lives would be gravely impacted. You provide the light in their homes, and ensure that their phones get charged, their desktop computers work, and their refrigerator runs. However, your clients may fall behind on their bill payments or not pay at all. This affects your business greatly, and this can impact other people’s sources of power and light. Here are some tactics that electricians can use for collecting debt from clients.

Form a Relationship

You want to form a good relationship with each of your clients. This encourages respect and trust in your brand and business. When a client feels a connection with you, they will be more inclined to pay their bills on time. 

Establishing and nourishing a relationship is simple. When you go to repair their electricity, engage in small talk. Listen to what they have to say, what their concerns are, or simply what they are up to these days. You can even take some time to call and check up on them and their electrical systems. Of course, in order to form a great relationship, you need great communication.

Effective Communication

When you begin business with a new client, make sure you state the rules of the transaction and have a clear date for payments. Don’t sugarcoat your prices. Your job is very necessary and you deserve the proper pay for your work. When you are done performing your service, remind them of the date of payment. You can even set up reminders, whether that be through email or texts. After all, we are all human and we might forget to make a payment sometimes.

Flexible Payment Methods

With technology advancing, there are now a variety of ways to track and receive payments. There are dozens of mobile apps that allow you to send and receive money in seconds. This is very convenient, and it’s hard to make excuses because the apps are very accessible and user-friendly.
