Superior debt-collection strategies to prevent running out of cash--and running off customers. Great products and super sales don't mean a thing if a company can't get its customers to pay their bills. In fact, bad debt can quickly turn a healthy company into an ailing, cash-strapped company--or even a bankrupt one.
Which is why it's imperative to collect as much money as possible, as fast as possible, while still maintaining the goodwill of debtors. It's a tall order, but one that's totally feasible with the effective collection strategies outlined in this lively and important new book. Readers learn how to:
- use collection letters, telephone calls, and personal visits
- collect debts with limited resources
- evaluate outside collection services
- make debt collection a fun activity
- negotiate win-win solutions with debtors, and more.
