A creatively designed invoice can be so much more than a collection tool. Links to social media websites are simple additions to electronic invoices providing opportunites for increased visibility and contact with customers. Plus, they add a little color and fun to an otherwise boring document.
While I was exploring settings in Xero, the social links area caught my attention. When activated, it adds Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google+ icons to online invoices. This is one of Xero’s many new invoicing features introduced in December 2012 and is a small step into the exciting world of Social Accounting.
