If you're operating your business the way you always have, even if you've been highly successful and had no or minimal payment issues, times have changed. You can't do what works in a normal world and expect it to work the same in a pandemic world.
If you ordinarily are very patient with clients in making payments, don't be. You can remain professional without falling prey to empty promises that then cause you to miss key deadlines to act. Nowadays and in months to come, there will be more empty promises than ever.
If you tend to avoid using forms to not scare new clients away, use forms. If they run, that's a red flag of what was to come.
