3 things you must include in your copywriting contract

236

Published on

Elaborating on the "Do you really need a copywriting contract?" presentation, here I address the three things that you absolutely MUST include in your freelance copywriting contract.

While I am not an attorney and this does not constitute legal advice, I have been reading copywriting contracts for a very, very, very long time :) In this time, I've seen some truly spectacular ones and some that leave the copywriter vulnerable to litigation, not getting paid, and other bad things.

So, speaking from experience, here I talk about those three elements that you want to be sure are included in your freelance copywriting contract! Learn how to protect yourself as well as your client.

  3. 3. When is a page considered “accepted”and done? - You don’t want to wait...and wait...and wait for feedback. - Consider giving your client a set amount of time for review. After that, the content is considered “accepted.”
