    Taking Money

    Taking Money

    Handymen typically accept various forms of payment for their services to accommodate the preferences and convenience of their clients. Here
    are some common forms of accepting payment:

    1.           Cash: Cash payments are straightforward and immediate. Many handymen prefer cash payments
    as they are easy to handle and don't involve transaction fees.

    2.           Checks: Some clients prefer to pay by personal or business checks. Handymen may accept
    checks but usually wait for them to clear before considering the job complete.

    3.           Credit/Debit Cards: Accepting credit or debit card payments allows handymen to offer
    convenient payment options to their clients. This can be done through mobile
    card readers or online payment processing services.

    4.           Online Payment Platforms: Handymen can utilize online payment platforms such as
    PayPal, Venmo, Square Cash, or other similar services to receive payments
    electronically.

    5.           Bank Transfers: Clients may opt to make direct bank transfers to the handyman's
    account. This method can be convenient for both parties, especially for larger
    transactions.

    6.           Payment Apps: Mobile payment apps like Zelle, Google Pay, or Apple Pay provide another
    convenient option for transferring funds securely.

    7.           Invoice and Payment Terms: Some handymen may work with clients on invoicing and payment
    terms, allowing for installment payments or setting up payment plans for larger
    projects.

    8.           Bartering: In some cases, handymen might accept goods or services in exchange for their
    work. This could involve trading services with other professionals or accepting
    goods as payment.

    It's essential for handymen to communicate clearly with
    their clients about their preferred payment methods and any associated fees or
    terms. Additionally, using written contracts or agreements can help ensure clarity regarding payment expectations for both parties.

    Every Door Direct

    Every Door Direct

    In this episode the Handyman Pros have a discussion about
    Every Door Direct.

    Every Door Direct Mail (EDDM) is a service offered by the
    United States Postal Service (USPS) that allows businesses to send targeted
    marketing materials to specific neighborhoods or ZIP codes without needing a
    list of addresses. Instead of addressing each piece individually, businesses
    can select postal routes and have their mail pieces delivered to every
    household along those routes.

    Here's how the EDDM service generally works:

    1.           Targeting:
    Businesses can use USPS's online mapping tool to select specific postal routes
    based on factors like demographics, household size, income, and age. This
    allows them to target the areas that are most likely to be interested in their
    products or services.

    2.           Design:
    Once the desired postal routes are selected, businesses can design their mail
    pieces according to USPS specifications. These specifications include size,
    weight, and layout requirements. The USPS website provides templates and
    guidelines to ensure compliance.

    3.           Printing:
    After designing the mail pieces, businesses need to get them printed. Many
    printing companies offer EDDM services and can handle both the printing and
    mailing aspects of the campaign.

    4.           Preparation:
    Before mailing, the mail pieces need to be bundled and prepared according to
    USPS regulations. This typically involves bundling them by postal route and
    completing the necessary paperwork.

    5.           Delivery:
    Once prepared, the mail pieces are delivered to the appropriate USPS facility
    for distribution. The USPS then delivers the mail to every household along the
    selected postal routes.

    6.           Cost: EDDM
    can be a cost-effective way to reach a large number of potential customers
    since it eliminates the need for purchasing mailing lists and allows for
    discounted postage rates.

    Overall, EDDM is a convenient and affordable option for
    businesses looking to reach a targeted audience within a specific geographic
    area. It's particularly popular among small businesses, local restaurants, real
    estate agents, and other entities that want to promote their products or
    services to nearby residents.
