Recently I wrote about why you and your clients need a contract, and what should go in a web design contract for the GoDaddy Garage. The topic has generated quite a bit of discussion, so for my latest WP Elevation article, I decided to continue the conversation and share with you 6 contract clauses that will save your tush — these are those ones you’re so happy you have if things ever get sticky.
About Those Contracts
- Never have I run into a designer who was thrilled to invest hours upon hours into a client project only to not get paid.
- Never have I run into a client who was happy about paying for work and not getting what they expected.
- Never have I run into a service provider or client who looks forward to and enjoys the tough conversations about contract enforcement.
Rock solid, crystal clear contracts aren’t just good for you, they are also good for your clients.
The best contracts support and protect you both equally and communicate your level of professionalism. These contracts are based on real experiences and less-than-stellar scenarios that become hands-on learning opportunities.
Unfortunately, that means the newer you are to the industry, the least likely you are to be protected.
