Branding. It’s not something that everyone loves doing, but as the owner of a small business, it will likely be something you need to deal with. Good branding can have a positive influence on your business because it will make sure your brand stands out from others so that customers will remember you.
Branding can take many different forms and you can make it as crazy as you like. Printing your logo on pens, notebooks, bags, cupcakes, and whatnot. Naturally, not all of this is necessary and it is completely and utterly up to you to decide which areas are important and beneficial for branding. There’s one area, however, where branding is often forgotten, and that is the branding of your invoices!
The first question we’ll answer in this blog is: Why should I make sure my invoices are branded?
1. It makes your invoices more designed and professional
Adding a logo makes for a better designed and more professional looking invoice because it shows that you take your business seriously and that you’re serious about getting paid. Including your logo on the invoice will make it more likely that you’ll get paid on time.
2. It makes you stand out from your competitors
People and businesses receive a lot of invoices, and so it’s very easy for invoices to get lost. What’s more, invoices are built according to a certain structure and therefore often look alike. If you want to make sure that people pay your invoices, it’s such a simple thing to add your logo and make your invoice stand out from the other ones. It’s immediately clear with your logo that it came from you, and it will make your invoice stand out across your competitors’ invoices on that big pile. You’re clearly distinguishing yourself.
3. Adding a logo to your invoices installs trust
When people see your logo over and over again, they will slowly become more accustomed to it and then when they see your logo on the invoice, they’ll know immediately which company it is from.
How can I brand my invoices?
You can brand your invoices in multiple different ways. If you make them yourself, simply adding your logo to your word or excel document should suffice. Using invoicing software like YoInvoice also often allows you to include your logo on the invoice. Adding your logo in YoInvoice is extremely easy, and once you’ve done it, it’ll automatically appear on all the subsequent invoices you will generate. It’s sure an easy and simple step, which will take 10 seconds of your time, but it ultimately helps boost your invoice enormously.
