For owners who want to encourage sales sooner, pre-sell your products or services. You might couch the pre-sale as a way for consumers to plan for their future or get a jump on shopping. You can also offer to take old, outdated products back at a pre-arranged price.
If you create enough aging receivables or pre-orders this can help you get funding. Funding to existing businesses who implement these strategies may come in different forms of financing to include factoring, purchase order financing, and even revenue based finance.
