How to Estimate a Job

When you estimate a job there are many important things to consider. First what type of work will this be? Wood, Concrete, Plumbing, Electrical etcetera.

Will there be any special considerations? Such as difficulties to overcome, etcetera. The reason for taking this approach is that you can only then ensure you’ve accounted for the difficulty of the actual work at hand. Once you ‘ve done that and most likely determined it will be a normal job you can put that behind you and get on with creating a normal estimate for the work.

The job estimate needs to be comprehensive, on your end. What I mean to say by that is it’s important that you get all of your cost included in your initial estimate as much as possible because you don’t want to have to go back to your client and ask for more money right after you begin the job. That can be very annoying to clients. That’s why you need to put the thought into the estimating process beforehand!

A good way to do this is to have a company template that you will use when you’re creating estimates for the jobs. The template should include areas where you can account for the hours you estimate the job will take, an area where you can account for the materials that will go into the job. There should even be an area where you can account for miscellaneous things and even an area where you can account for the full cost of moving your vehicle to the job site. No one area is more important than another, they should all carry the same weight in the estimate.

There are reasons for this. If you fail to get paid correctly for the job then that’s called doing charity work. And that’s OK if that’s your intention, but not OK if you in business to make a living.

Now what you may not know is that there is an app for your Smartphone that has already taken all of these areas into consideration and has a built-in Job Template you can use to estimate jobs with.

The name of the app is the Profit Pal Mobile Invoicing App. This app can guide you through the process of making great estimates for your jobs. When you log into the app it has a sheet that you follow to input the numbers and the app does the calculations in the background saving your numbers to go into the invoice you will send your clients.

This app can really help you to make better estimates!

Online Invoicing Apps

What is an Online Invoicing App

A Primer on the advancements in Online Invoicing Apps

Since the advent of computers they were just stand alone devices used to create documents, kind of like a glorified typewriter. They were machines that had a key board which you could type on and save documents on them. Some were even made just to play games on them. Seems like such a waste of computing power. But those days are long gone. Even game programs today have been transformed into programs that can be used for designing and graphics.

Water under the bridge now, as computing power has grown exponentially to speed things up. Computers today can almost function at the speed we think at. This is a fantastic time to be alive.

Then along came the cellphone or mobile phone, as some called it. At the beginning it was just designed to be a communication device. But it also began to evolve, and began its metamorphic climb.

First came the ability to text with it. Soon these phones became smarter and smarter, thus the term we use today Smartphones. Now not only do cell phones text, but you can even surf the World Wide Web with them. The advancements have truly been revolutionary in scope.

Like the P.C. of yesterday cell phones have continued to metamorphous into a powerful tool. Since all of this computing power was placed into cell phones it wasn’t long before code writers were aware of the computing power that was available in these new cell phones. And thus was born the age of apps. These are just computer programs that can run on smartphones.

It had to be the case that all of this computing power in the new phones could not go to waste. And the quest has begun, there are apps for just about everything, from scheduling your appointments to navigating your car to them. And who can say that these apps aren’t helpful, I sure can’t.

So we can see, we have come a long way to where we are today. In a quest to take over most of life’s little annoyances, apps are designed to do anything pretty much, that people find boring.

If the trend continues I can see a day where an app will do everything. I almost hate to say that, but I think we will see that someday. But I digress.

The subject today here is Online Invoicing Apps, so with all of that behind us let me introduce the Profit Pal Mobile Invoicing App. It’s an app that will allow anyone with a business to create a job in an efficient and logical manor. Save it for your records, and create an invoice to give to your clients. It’s the culmination of just one of the things apps have evolved to do, at the present time. The reason it’s called an online invoicing app, is because, it sends your data via email thru email servers thus online.

If you are in any type of small business you owe it to yourself to try out the Profit Pal Mobile Invoicing App today!
