Freshbooks Features Review
I use Freshbooks to run my freelance design business. It's so integral I can't do without it. From organizing my clients, projects, time and invoices, to the reports features it's such a life saver for my business and makes things super easy for new clients to log in, see, print and pay their invoices.
Reports features are great. I can get an in-depth and clear picture of what I'm making! I also love the time tracking tool and how it integrates totally when I generate invoices.
I'm not versed well in the expenses section. Wish it was a little easier to manage.
I did research similar companies similar, but I loved how Freshbooks marketed to freelancers and the main features I wanted were all there and more! I also love how intuitive it is to use.
I was creating all my invoices with InDesign and it was daunting. I knew there had to be a better way.
My main use is invoicing. In the beginning I only accepted checks. After I added the credit card pyts I get paid quicker! Not all of them use it, but it definitely helps a bunch!
The invoicing, time tracking and client integration has streamlined my business immensely. I don't have to think or work too hard with the accounting end. More time spent on client projects. It makes me feel legit. I LOVE IT.
I'm not sure
Would LOVE expanded customization for the invoice design such as additional templates and special section for important notes/updates in the invoice area that clients would see right away. How about expanding the recommendations portions and maybe allowing a section for a portfolio somehow so the 2 can integrate and possibly help to increase business. I guess I'm not totally clear on how the recommendations get seen after their written by clients.
