Welcome to another Invoice Ninja Story! This series profiles Invoice Ninja all around the world!

BIO

Nick Pagano is a web and graphic designer from Houston, Texas.

 

HOW DID YOU GET STARTED?

“I’ve always loved design. I use to make fan websites and graphics when I was a little kid –  Rage Against the Machine and Westside Connection were a few of the groups, in case you were wondering.) I went to the Art Institute of Houston, and to the shock, surprise, and elation of my parents, I did pretty well. For the past 13+ years now, I’ve been working with companies of all sizes, in just about all industries, in over 11 countries. I get to do that thing I use to do as a kid for fun, for a living. It’s pretty cool, and I’m very thankful.”

 

What Are Your Favorite Invoice Ninja Benefits?

“The thing I like most about Invoice Ninja, is it lets me focus on design. I’m not a big fan of the financials aspect of the design business, so Invoice Ninja helps me easily and quickly take care of that stuff, so I can get back to actually designing. I love that people can pay directly online, so I get paid faster. People tend to take a little longer to send a check, then it has to get to you. I find customers tend to pay the invoice right when they open it, since it’s so easy and painless.

 

What Are Your Favorite Invoice Ninja Benefits?

“I like the ability to turn quotes into invoices, and send them for payment. I talk with a lot of different companies, and send out a lot of quotes, so it’s nice to easily be able to convert them to an invoice, and get quickly paid.”

 

Expert Advice

“Design is important. If you’re a fan of facts, here area a few: 75% of users admit to making judgments about a company’s credibility based on their website’s design. 81% of consumers go online before they go to your business. So, your website needs to make a great first impression. You’ve invested a lot of time and money into your business, and your website, and all other design, should reflect that.”
