QuickBooks customized invoices are a godsend for many small businesses. They’re a great branding opportunity and simplify the billing process for both you and your customers. 

Keep reading this post for the latest QuickBooks customized invoices best practices and to discover how Method:CRM opens up additional customization opportunities for your business. 

3 ways to improve your QuickBooks customized invoices 

1. Make your brand known 

By the time you create an invoice, the deal is sealed and you’ve won the sale. 

What’s not guaranteed, however, is that your customer remembers your business for future purchases. Luckily, this is an area where branded invoices can help.

With QuickBooks customized invoices, you can tailor your invoice to include your:

  • Company logo
  • Business’ name
  • Contact details 
  • Return policy

All of which increase brand recognition and buyer stickiness. This, in turn, improves the chance of your business being top of mind for future purchases and referrals.

With QuickBooks customized invoices, you can provide a consistent customer experience and build a brand people don’t forget! 

2. Personalization is key

84% of buyers state that “being treated like a person, instead of a transaction, is crucial to winning their business.”

– Forbes, 2020.

And your invoices are no exception to this statistic. 

To ensure your customers feel valued, your QuickBooks custom invoices need to include elements of personalization that show they’re more than just a number.

Whether that’s a special note to them or an exclusive discount for their next purchase, including these details in your custom templates pays off.  

3. Make your invoices informative

An opportunity that’s often missed with QuickBooks customized invoices is adding non-transactional data to your invoice form. Here’s why this is so important. 

If you include details like warranty expiration dates or upcoming service appointments, you transform your invoice from a document customers dread receiving to a useful resource they can refer back to. 

The benefits of this are that your customers: 

  • Hold a positive memory of your business even when paying
  • Gain value from receiving your invoices 
  • Have all the post-purchase information they need upfront

Plus, creating a custom invoice like this saves your team time as crucial information is automatically communicated to your customers. 

While QuickBooks Online and QuickBooks Desktop don’t offer this level of customization, there is a tool that does.
