Collect Unpaid Phone Bills with These 3 Strategies

Phone companies are vital in this day and age of technology. An average adult spends 3 hours and 43 minutes on their phone every day. There is no doubt that your service is a necessity. However, customers tend to fall behind on their monthly payments or completely skip them. Having to chase them down and collect the unpaid bills is a hassle. There are other areas of your company to take care of, such as making sure the millions of phone plans are working smoothly. You can team up with Southwest Recovery Services to take care of your debt collection. However, if you decide to take it on on your own, we have a couple of strategies for collecting unpaid phone bills. 

Effective Communication

Starting business with a new client is always great; it means your revenue is increasing. Make sure you state the rules of the transaction and have a clear date for payments. You want to avoid any confusion right at the beginning. When you are clear about the rules, you increase the likelihood that your transactions will run smoothly. We recommend setting up multiple payment reminders throughout the month. The more you remind your customers that a bill is coming up, the less likely they will miss the date. You can experiment with different platforms, such as through emails, texts, mail, ect. Try to use a variety of platforms, to ensure that communication is maximized.

Flexible Payment Methods

There are a number of ways to track, receive, and document payments. Some that are growing in popularity are mobile apps. These allow you to send and receive money in seconds. It’s a great tool to utilize. It’s a simple transaction that requires minimal time and effort. The more flexible you are with payment method options, the less excuses your customers will have.

Hire a Debt Collection Agency

Outsourcing to debt collection agencies is the most effective and convenient strategy to pursue. Agencies like Southwest Recovery Services are made up of professionally trained agents that know how to deal with all kinds of customers in all kinds of scenarios.
