Hi! My name is Ben Burns.

I’m the author of The Perfect Proposal and The Complete Case Study, I am the Digital Director of Blind, and I’m the guy who went from selling logos for $50 to $30,000 (we sell logos for a lot more now, btw).

This is (another part of) my story.

I typically start these pages out with a personal story. And believe me, I truly wish I didn't have a hard lesson about getting paid... but I do.

I've been through it all: from clients disappearing with my work (and their checkbook) to a client claiming a fraudulent charge on their credit card... eight months after I finished the job.

And you know what? I wasn't alone. All of my designer, developer, and copywriter friends seemed to have a similar story! I didn't understand why some clients seemed to disregard creatives.

If you've been burned like I have, you know exactly how this feels: a mixture of embarrassment and shame followed and fueled by self-righteous rage.

I got sick of having that feeling... and wound up not trusting my clients before we even began.

Something had to change.

I began to investigate how 'real' businesses billed their clients, and stumbled into the deep well of invoicing. What I discovered was a tried-and-true process for creating invoices, sending them, and following up with your clients that I've used successfully for years. I just wish I knew this stuff sooner.

You've probably heard this from me before, but I learn by getting punched in the face... and that's a pain I want to help each and every one of you prevent. That's why I'm here. That's why I do this.

The toolkits (and books) I write are easy to use, immediately practical, and full of examples and worksheets. Paid In Full (my third toolkit) is no different. Over 7,000 creatives have invested in these toolkits. Here is what a few people have said about my first product, The Perfect Proposal:

Invoicing the right way makes everyone’s life easier.

Unless you're working exclusively on platforms like Upwork, Fiverr, or Freelancer, you've sent an invoice before. But the question we need to answer is: "Am I doing this the right way?"

I’m sure you’ve been through one of these scenarios:

  • You received a late payment
  • You finished a project without getting paid
  • A client flipped pricing around halfway through the engagement
  • You lost track of which clients paid what

Any one of these cases can totally take a hit on your business and your creative spirit. I know because it happened to me more than a few times when I was growing my own business.

This is where Paid In Full shines: it’s literally a masterclass where you'll learn how to create a great invoice template and develop a sending and follow-up process that works for you and your business. You’ll be able to:

  • Send invoices in a way that gets client buy-in
  • Keep yourself and your finances organized
  • Know your cash flow in and out
  • Get paid faster, or right on time
  • Automate your follow-up process

Money can be an intimidating subject for some, but when you have an invoicing process that’s completely your own, understanding your business's cash flow and keeping track of payments becomes a total breeze.

Getting paid shouldn't be complicated.

If you did the work and you and the client agreed on a price, you need to get paid. Plain and simple.

With the guidance packed into this kit, you’ll have the confidence and preparation to make sure clients don’t fall short on their end of the deal.

Frequently Asked Questions

What's the deal with the preorder?
Most of the toolkit has been written and designed. But before we invest more time into a product, we always prelaunch in order to make sure it's something that you all want us to make! By doing things in an iterative, user-centric way, we make great products and you have the chance to help us along the way. Did we mention there's a secret webinar just for early birds?
I'm not a graphic designer. Does this apply?
That depends. Do you work with clients? If so, you're going to love this. We've had architects, UI/UX designers, brand strategists, business coaches... even plumbers (weird, right?!) get amazing value from products just like this. Try it.
Is this a course?
Yes and no. While the core content is made up of several downloadable files, there is an educational component and a template component. I wanted this product to be highly actionable and tactical.
How long do I have access to the material?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this material for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
What if I am unhappy with the material?
I'm pretty sure you're going to love it. By policy, we don't accept refunds on digital goods. But if you're really unhappy, shoot an email to [email protected] and send in your proposal that you've created with the provided materials. We'll be able to work something out.
