WHAT IS A CLIENT AGREEMENT?
Basically, a client agreement is a contract you send to your 1-on-1 clients before you start working together. It sets out the terms of your agreement in writing so you’re able to try to enforce it, if/when needed. Clients are more likely to take the terms of your agreement seriously if they know they’ve signed an agreement with you.
