Williams & Harricks 1.0

A simple but effective online service for freelancers

Working for yourself can be an immensely rewarding experience; as online communication becomes steadily more effective, an increasing number of skilled and creative workers are turning their backs on the office and stepping out on their own. The freedom of a freelance lifestyle can be hugely appealing, but it's worth remembering that there are drawbacks too; people working on their own aren't generally able to benefit from the legal and administrative resources of a larger company. One of the main issues facing freelancers is clients failing to pay, which is where this service aims to help.

Working for yourself can be an immensely rewarding experience; as online communication becomes steadily more effective, an increasing number of skilled and creative workers are turning their backs on the office and stepping out on their own. The freedom of a freelance lifestyle can be hugely appealing, but it's worth remembering that there are drawbacks too; people working on their own aren't generally able to benefit from the legal and administrative resources of a larger company. One of the main issues facing freelancers is clients failing to pay, which is where this service aims to help.

Getting Official

Established by And Co, a software freelancing company, Williams&Harricks is a simple online service that, for a modest fee, sends an official looking, sternly worded letter to clients that won't cough up the readies. Users can choose from a variety of templates, ranging from a friendly reminder through to a imposingly worded 'breach of contract' letter, which is then mailed to the client containing the relevant details and amounts owed. The letters are sent by certified mail, and the customer will be alerted once delivery has taken place.

Williams&Harricks aren't an actual law firm, and offer no further legal advice or services, however it's often the case than a stern reminder is all that's required in order to extract payment from a reluctant customer.

Conclusion

While the services offered are limited, and won't replace a real law firm, Williams&Harricks is a cheap and easy option for freelancers to add to their arsenal.
