Four simple rules

The Harpoon Method Embrace these four simple rules.

There are dozens of invoicing and time-tracking apps to choose from. But only Harpoon is built upon a proven method of success. Every feature of our product has been designed to help you carry out four simple rules that empower you to manage your business finances successfully:

  • Rule #1 Rule Number One

    Set a Financial Goal

    How much money do you want to make this year? Setting a meaningful, yearly financial goal for your business is the best way to guide you into making smart choices that lead to growth and success. Allow your long-term vision to direct your short-term decisions.

  • Rule #2 Rule Number Two

    Plan Your Revenue

    Work backwards from your financial goal and break up your year into manageable, bite-sized pieces. Plan out how much revenue your business needs to bring in each month and schedule your projects accordingly. When you plan your future you own your future.

  • Rule #3 Rule Number Three

    Bill Your Clients Intelligently

    Invoicing should be a joyful, stress-free process for both you and your clients. Pick a billing strategy that complements the services you provide. Be upfront and clear on your terms and follow through with confidence. Your quality of work is worthy of the payments you receive.

  • Rule #1 Rule Number Four

    Control Your Expenses

    The money you spend is just as important as the money you earn. Set up an expense budget for your business to bring purpose and discipline to your spending. Track every penny; make adjustments as needed; and stay profitable. It feels good to be in control.

Four simple rules

These rules make up The Harpoon Method, a simple, best-practices approach to managing your business finances. This method, combined with our friendly software, empowers you to take total control of your time, billing, and expenses, and puts you in charge of accomplishing your financial goals.

"As a new small business owner I never really had my finances in order and would always say yes to any project that came my way. Now I'm able to plan my schedule and my revenue as I grow my business."
