Why You Should Be Using Contracts With Your Clients

  1. Reason #1: A contract clearly defines the project, which protects you and the client 01:31
    • It states what the project will be and how much it will cost.
    • Contracts are for both parties, they should protect you and the client.
    • If you ever see a one-sided contract, don’t sign it.
  2. Reason #2: A contract helps to prevent scope creep 02:24
    • Scope creep is a not-so-affectionate term in the web design business that describes when a project begins to move outside of a clearly defined scope of work.
  3. Reason #3: A contract clearly outlines the expectations on both sides 04:59
    • Because contracts are two-sided, the contract needs to outline what the client is expected to deliver to you in order to complete the job.
    • You don’t want to get halfway into a project and the client say “I thought you were writing all the website copy and providing the images.”
  4. Reason # 4: A contract allows you to offer upsell services later on 05:50
    • If a client wants to change the scope of the project, you can add additional services on top of the original project.
