As we get into the final weeks of 2023, you may be ready to start tallying up your year-end totals. But there are still a few days left to make some extra cash this year with your Google Form and the Payable Add-On. From making sure that no one still owes you money to spreading the word about your charity or service offering one last time, here are six low-stress ways to make sure you’re making the most of the last 12 days of 2023.
Check open checkouts
If you haven’t been checking your connected Google Sheet regularly, it’s time to take a quick look at it and make sure that you don’t have any checkouts that are still in progress. Some businesses may provide products or services before checking on payments, and some charities may assume that people are going through the full checkout process and paying right away. But sometimes, things slip through the cracks and you may still have some open carts, meaning people owe you money or were planning to donate but haven’t yet. Luckily, Payable makes it easy to send payment due reminders, so just head to your Sheet and do a quick check, sending reminders if needed.
Check Your Checkout Process
Sometimes, people want to buy your product, sign up for your course or donate to your charity, but your Google Form is too complex and they give up before they get to the checkout page. Take a look at your Form and pretend you’re a customer. Can you simplify your Form at all to make it easier for people to get to the payment process faster? (You can also use this chance to double check that your Payable settings are all correct and that your checkout page is working well.)
Email Your Business/Charity to 5 People You Know
It feels awkward to email people and ask them to support you, but if you have a product or service that you want to share, or you have a charity you’re raising money for, share it with five friends or family members, and ask them to pass it along to a few people they know.
Share on social
Already shared what you’re doing on social media? Share it again. According to Indoor Media, researchers believe that the average consumer needs to view an ad at least 7-8 times before it’ll really sink in. And with the current algorithm constantly changing, it’s likely that a lot of your clients/potential customers/friends + family haven’t actually seen what you’re doing yet!
Say Thank You
Thank your past customers with a promo code! The best part about Payable is that you have all of your customer’s info in one place. Use it wisely, but if you have a great offer you can share with your best customers, make sure that they know about it.
Change Up Your Purchase Options
Sometimes, getting more people donating money or buying from you is as simple as changing up the ways that people can pay. For a charity, this could include adding an open-ended donation option, or adding a multiple choice option if you already had an open-ended one. For a small business, this could look like adding a subscription option or multi-pack.
