Be The First To Know

Welcome aboard! We are thrilled to have you.
Uh oh, something went wrong. Try submitting the form again.

Every new client and new project is a risk.

You’ve probably experienced, or at least heard, some of the horror stories. “The client ghosted me and I haven't been paid.” “We agreed on three revisions, but they wanted more.” “I quoted them 12 pages for the site, but the scope kept growing.”

At some point, you’re going to get burned.

It happens to the best of us. And while it does tug on your spirit, there’s not much you can do about unpredictability. But you can at least be prepared for whatever may come, and set yourself up for success.

You’re a professional. Act like it.

If you enter a new client relationship prepared, not only will you be setting the terms of the engagement, but you let the client know that you take their business seriously.

The Legal Kit includes agreements that are template versions of what we use for our business here in the US, and they are applicable internationally. If you're unsure, consider having a lawyer check them out as well.

The Legal Kit

Hope for the best, plan for the worst.

Tried-and-true tools

Get the resources you need to build bulletproof SOWs, guard yourself from lawsuits and offer clearly defined terms for how you like to work.

Be in charge

Work on your own terms and set the rules of engagement for all of your projects. Protect your business from the start to the very end of every engagement.

Build better client relationships

Show clients how professional and serious you are about helping them with the documentation to back it up. Your client will think, “They've clearly done this before.”
