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.
