  • You are responsible for the success of the business

This guest blog post is brought to you by Zervant, an online invoicing, time tracking, and accounting software trusted by 60,000 small businesses and sole traders.

Running your own business can be challenging, but it’s certainly never dull. Unless, of course, you’re talking about invoices. So here at Zervant we’ve put together some advice on how to master the art of invoicing. Since we started our business back in 2010 our online invoicing software has helped more than 60,000 entrepreneurs and we wanted to use this knowledge and experience to show service providers on Bidvine what the possibilities are.
