Profit Pal App and the next Recession

Profit Pal App and the next Recession

Recessions come about around every ten years or so. In a recession, it’s important to make the most you can. And the next one is no exception, it will be important for you to have an app like the Profit Pal App. What you may not know is this, the Profit Pal App was created to help Tradesmen & Women in small businesses by helping them to earn more on the work they are already doing. It’s important in these tough economic times to accountant for and gets paid for everything that goes into a job.

Many economists out there are saying that another recession is around the corner for many different reasons, of which I will not get into here.  Understanding that the creator of the Profit Pal App wanted to create something that would help tradespeople out there to be more competitive, while still achieving their income goals.  As this will be imperative in tough economic times ahead.

How Profit Pal does this is a secret, but the creator of the app knows this.  I will let you in on part of it, to start with, the app has calculations built in which all but guarantee you’ll get it right. In the New Jobs Screen, the user enters.

Now having said that, this does not mean that you should pad the bill, but that you need this information, it’s very important since you need a target to shoot for.

How about padding the bill. You need to be cognizant that if you do pad the bill too high you may not be competitive with other tradesmen & women in your same area. This may make it more difficult for you to get the job if you are bidding on the work.

Having said that, the app helps you to understand all of your real cost for that particular job so that you don’t underbid the job and end up with a loss.

It’s important to account for all of the numbers, and the app will help you do that.  If you look at the fields as a guide and fill in the most accurate numbers that you think it will take to do the job.

If you decide that you can actually do the job for less, then you just adjust your numbers down a little, and now you are more competitive while still taking into account all of the issues for that particular job.

Profit Pal App Title Field


Profit Pal App Title Field

Title Field is where you will identify a particular job. One of the great features the Profit Pal App has is the Title Field if you prefer to call it a box, that’s OK too. I do, I generally just call them boxes to be filled in.

When you open the app you start at the Main Menu. The menu extends from the left side of the app whenever tapped. Once you’ve signed in you select what you would like to do. This is where you enter all of the jobs.

You Start the Jobs with the Title

You start with the Title field. It can be really useful when used correctly.  If you are an electrician or a plumber, or refrigerator repairman or… for example you most likely went to a physical address to do the job.

You can enter that address into the title field.  Or you can enter whatever data in the title field that you want,  its just to help you if you ever need to look it up again in the future. Since you followed the Profit Pal instructions “ha hum,” and ‘Saved’ the job as it says to do.  

Then what happens is that the Profit Pal App will send you an email from your phone. It comes right from your email account set up on your phone, as most people do!

The app will use the same email address you signed up with when you downloaded the app. Or that email address you used when you purchased the app in the Google Play Store or the Apple I-tunes store.

And in that email was a lot of information and the information entered in the title field is just one of them.  Now not only will you have the property address, if that is what you wrote in there, but you’ll also have copies to save.

The Map Pins

The map pins will show your current location, you move the other map pin to the area close to where you’ll be working. The app will use that information to calculate distance and your fuel cost to move your vehicle. This information should be a big help to you should you need to go back for more work to the same location, at some time in the future.

I hope you can begin to see the power of the Profit Pal App. Each field or was deeply thought thru, and how it would help small business people to succeed.

Since we come from a family of trade’s people and has owned several businesses, so we know what’s important to capture. The data you’ll enter is that data, and it fits into the overall job picture, so as to be comprehensive in nature.

By the time you finish a job the last thing you want is to realize you were not paid for some portion of the job i.e. travel, fuel cost, or taxes you had to pay on the materials that went into the job.

We know that there are a few of the areas that Trade’s men and women can get short-changed in. Profit Pal was designed to stop that from happening!

Download the app at the app stores just follow the link that applies to your smartphone.

Billing Apps

Billing Apps

Billing apps are a better way to bill your customers. When you get into any kind of business you’re going to need a way to bill your customers.

They say “Necessity is the Mother of Invention.” And there’s a good reason for that.

It’s usually some form of problem that results in a solution for that particular situation.

When Thomas Edison invented the Light Bulb, a large part of the reason aside from we need light to see things, was the fact that kerosene Lanterns were dangerous as many fires resulted from their use.

So this necessitated a better way to create light.

Men have always since the dawn of time been creative. From the first primitive tools to the modern day marvels that we see today.

Billing apps are no different, they take a few problems and solve them.

  1. No need for pens or paper
  2. They can be sent the electronically, saving time
  3. Locality is no longer an issue since you don’t need to be with the client for them to get their bill

I could go on and on but you get the idea. I mean we aren’t still riding around on horses are we?

The time came for the whole process of billing to go electronic and that’s exactly what happened.

As much as some of us would like to stay in the past, that’s just not possible today we must move on.

There are just too many advantages to Billing Apps that they are now here to stay.

So if this article has peaked your interest, then you might want to get of to one of the App Stores and see them for yourself.

Free Trials

Free Trials are a great Way to Experience a New App

Free? is this a way t get started? How many times have you seen “Free Trials” in an ad for an App?  They lure you in to sign up for the Free Trial. Only to find out that they are withholding the best features in the app.

So you sign up for the free trial, only to find out that you’ve got a limited version of the app, that doesn’t have the features you need to conduct your business.  These free trials are very tricky as far as usability.

Don’t be Fooled

They’re trying to get you hooked, to where you’ll need their app before the real price for the app is revealed. You’ll have to pay a lot more because they have different levels and not only that, but they’ll charge you on a monthly basis as well to use all the features. Since all of those apps require a monthly subscriptions at different levels to use their apps.

By the time they have you hooked, you’ll be spending a lot of money if you want to use all of the features in their app. This can become confusing and stressful especially when you’re trying to do business.

No Gimicks

With our app, there are no such gimmicks. Although you can have a 7 Day Free Trial, you’ll get all of the same features as if you had purchased the app long term.  When you get the app on your Smartphone or tablet you’ll have the best and least expensive Invoicing App available.

With our app The Profit Pal App you’ll be able to create job files, estimates, and send as many invoices as you like to all your clients any time you want. Since the app is full of features for you to use.

So don’t fall for the Free Trials Gimicks, get an app that you can count on and use for free for 7 Days or for as long as you like for a small price, without the gimmick’s or tricks.

What are Good Apps Anyway?

Reports
Good Apps

What is Considered Good Apps Anyway?

Good apps are best when doing any kind of business? They are ones that can deliver what your business needs. This article was written to give you the basics of what to look for in good apps. So you’ll know why we need good apps in the first place?

Apps are just computer code that will work on a Smartphone or on Tablet. Since the advent of Smart Devices, it was necessary that code writers get busy writing programs for these devices.

And what has happened has really been amazing as there are more apps being created every day for just about anything imaginable. Whether you just want to play games or you want something more useful for whatever business you happen to be in.

Navigation Apps

By now most people are aware of Navigation apps, such as Google Navigation, or Waze Traffic App, there really are so many others, but those are probably the two most popular navigation apps. If you’ve used either of them, then you know how useful they are.

If you can think of a need there’s probably an app out there to fit that need. Good Apps can do many different things differentiated only by the designer and the requirements.

One like the Profit Pal Mobile Invoicing App was designed for Tradesmen and Women to estimate jobs and invoice their clients. One thing about this app is that they will usually give you a lot of value for your money. These also have many different features built into them.

How they get paid!

Now you may be thinking how does all of this get paid for since no one works for free, and it can’t be cheap to have these made. Well, you are correct in your assumption. What happens is you either pay a one-time price in which case you pay you download it to your device and you can use it forever; however, there is a cost to the app provider since they need

The other way is they let you download it for free, I wouldn’t recommend one of these because they place ads in the app that come up at random and you have to look at them for a few seconds. I don’t know about you but if I am using a serious business app I don’t want to be interrupted with those ads. So I would pay the price to download one on my Smart Device.

A good one is any that can help your business to succeed. So hope this article was helpful and that you now have a better understanding of what apps are all about.

The Secret to Their Success

The Secret to Their Success

Who hasn’t wondered about that man or woman that we see living the life we wish we had? I know I have! Well, why do you think we wish we were that person? Could it be that they know something we don’t and that’s the secret to their success?

Surely they must know something that makes them behave differently. The truth is they do know something, and it’s probably not what you’re thinking. What they have been able to do is to find a different way to do things and go about life than what regular people do. You see its no secret that the results that we get in life are directly a result of the way we’re doing things. It’s really that simple. If you want different results then you need to change the way you’re doing things.

I’ll tell you why so many people today continue to drown in their businesses because they aren’t willing to try something new. They simply refuse, telling themselves that the new system or gadget is just a rip off of their money. Even when the cost may be so small that it wouldn’t hurt them in the least.

The truth is there aren’t lazy, they just and can’t seem to get over their fear to try something new that’s all. Even though that new thing or way of doing things, is probably exactly what they should be doing. It would get them out of their rut. Whenever you learn to do something new it hurts a little at first because you are training your brain in a new task. But that’s a good thing, and the more you do it the easier it is. With time it becomes routine.

And so it is with using our app the Profit Pal App sure the first time it will seem a little challenging, but rest assured it was designed with you in mind so it won’t be impossible. You’ll get the hang of it and soon be using it to send invoices, reports, and even sending coupons to your customers to stay in touch with them.

So don’t despair when wouldn’t now be a good time to use the Profit Pal App for Invoicing your clients. You’ll be that person that people look up to as being competent in business since you didn’t shy away from a small challenge and you learned what it took to succeed.

Use Your Customer Base

 

The Customer is King

Your customer is the most important part of your business. They definately should not be taken lightly. A great way to Increase Business is to stay in contact with your Customer Base, on at least a monthly basis. One of the things that annoy me is when I want to get in touch with a Service Tech that I used in the past, and I realize they have not even attempted to stay in touch with me. That’s like saying “I don’t need your business.” It’s just sad, and no way to run a legit business. Customers want to feel that you want their business.

Send Something of Value

If you’re not sending them something once in a while you will most likely lose that customer to someone that will take better care of them. There’s really no excuse for this when there are so many ways for you to stay relevant to them. You could send them a flyer or a letter, but today there’s actually a better way. Send them a coupon for discounts on future work, they will be happy to receive it and will know that you’re still in business. So you kill two birds with one stone.

Using an App

With an app like the Profit Pal App when you do work for your client you can capture their email addresse when you send them their Invoice. That email gets saved in the Job File for that particular job. Now it’s easy to stay in touch with them. Using the Coupon Feature you simply send them a coupon from time to time right from the app. There are three templates to choose from. You just create an offer let’s say 10% off for returning customers, send it to them via email right from your Smartphone.

Easier Than You May Think

It’s so easy, and now the customers know that you’re still in business and that you’re interested in their business and appreciate them. So don’t hesitate use this feature in the app and stop ignoring your previous customers and use them as a way to increase your business.

With an Invoice Software App on your Smartphone life becomes much easier.  These apps can even help you when estimating the job because they have boxes that prompt you to enter all of the relevant information that needs to go into figuring the actual cost for doing the job.

The Profit Pal App even has boxes to account for things like fuel cost and travel to the new job location.  It helps you stay on top of your cost, so you don’t lose money when doing jobs. Used correctly this app can help you to be more profitable. The app does this by saving the job information to a job file.

Vinnie a Plumber’s Story

Vinnie’s Story

Don’t know where your Parts are going? Read about Vinnie and his Plumbing Company

Vinnie owns a plumbing company that runs 10 plumbing trucks. Vinnie was constantly complaining that the crews that work for him could not account for all of the parts they were supposed to be putting into the jobs. They couldn’t tell him what parts went into which jobs. He said he needed a way to know where all of his parts were actually going.

We decided to create a solution for Vinnie and his Plumbing Company. What we came up with is simply magical, if you know what I mean. Because not only does this application show what parts went into which job, that’s just the beginning. We call this feature in the Profit Pal Application the Inventory Control Feature. With this feature the plumbing technician on each truck creates his very own inventory. He or she just enters the names of the parts and the part starting count. Now as he adds one or one hundred parts to the job the app is tracking them. The application adds the parts to the invoice for that job’s file, and automatically subtracts them from the totals. Now each week the Lead Plumber, on each of the trucks just emails his job reports to Vinnie, and Vinnie can re-order however many parts are needed to resupply the trucks.

No longer is Vinnie frustrated by not knowing where his parts went. He’s got actual data to go by.

So Vinnie’s a happy man.

We know it’s a source of frustration told by many tradesmen and woman. That’s why we put this Inventory Control Feature in the application. We know just how frustrating it can be keeping track of where all of your expensive parts are going.

So we came up with a solution. This is just the kind of help you’ve been waiting for! The Inventory Control Feature in the Profit Pal Mobile Invoicing Application. Especially since another one of the most annoying situations, that just about every business comes across, at one time or another, are part shortages.

This can be very troublesome, as most likely the worker/ technician will have to stop working, and go for parts. And that’s a major time eater.

And as if that’s not bad enough, if you don’t have an Inventory Control system, then you most likely don’t have a way to track what parts went into which job either! Follow along…

This one can actually be dangerous to your business.

In this example, suppose the technician working for you, says that he put a new part at that last location, and the job fails.  And you come to find out that the new part you thought went into that job, actually went to another job. That situation could become a big problem for your business, and rather embarrassing as well. Especially when you’re confronted with an irate client.

Well guess what these problems can actually be avoided. That is if you have an application like the Profit Pal Mobile invoicing Application. This application now has an Inventory Control Feature built in it. This feature allows you to create your very own Inventory Control Form, where you’ll list all of the parts on your truck, and there cost.  And as you create the job file, and assign a part to a job, the application immediately add it to the invoice for that job, and automatically update, the cost for that part or multiple parts, and the inventory for that part is automatically updated, and also accounted for on the bill.

The application’s feature can track your inventory count, quantity’s used, and remaining parts in your bin, so you don’t have to worry, and you know where you stand on parts each and every day.

It just doesn’t get any better than this! Now with this new Inventory Control Feature, we’ve thought of everything for you, and made it easy to use.  So no more excuses! Get this application on your Smartphone or Tablet, you and your business will be covered in so many different ways. Vinnie is now a happy man and you can be too.

So don’t waist another minute, you know you need it, and since “time is money.” As they say!
