Do you really need a freelance copywriting contract?

  1. 1. How to start an SEO copywritingbusiness Do you really need a copywriting contract?
  2. 2. Short answer: YES! - A contract spells out the terms and gets everyone on the same page. - A good contract protects you - and protects your client, too. - If a client won’t sign one, consider it a huge red flag (and consider walking away.)
  3. 3. Should you sign your client’s contract? - Maybe - although it’s good to have your own contract. - Don’t just blindly sign - no matter how excited you are about the gig. - Always have your attorney review your client’s contract and make changes. - See something you don’t like? Speak up!
