Freelance Basics – Invoicing with Billings

Posted on 2012/06/13 at 00:16 by daarken 17 Comments

In this video Daarken talks about invoicing as a freelance artist and how to use the program Billings. Unfortunately Billings is only for the Mac, so PC users will have to try and find another invoicing program.

    Thanks a lot for the introduction. Was never a fan of writing things down on paper. Too much chaos after a while, at least for me :)

    Amazingly helpful tut Daarken! Reason number 1788 why I need to buy a Mac. Anyone know of a PC equivalent or similar app?

    Freshbooks is a great web based invoice service…much more versatile but costs a few bucks a month if you are juggling over 3 clients at a time.

      It really depends on your ability, the client, and the project. Yes you could easily make upwards of $50/hour.

    awesome Stuff! i’ve been exploring your site like a child in a candy store! great info. i’d love to see more video’s about freelancing, like how to find/deal with clients and such, or samples of what contracts looks like, and some info on copyrighting your work even if it’s for a client. i’m very interested in these topics ^^.
    you’re doing a great job for the site.
