Frequently Asked Questions

Collab your heart out with this fill-in-the-blank DIY Collaboration Contract template. This Collaboration Contract template is what you use when you and a bunch of other entrepreneurs want to run a giveaway, create a summit, or otherwise collaborate to promote or sell something, but you’re not creating a BUSINESS together. This collaboration contract is simply for business owners who want to collaborate with other business owners or solopreneurs to work on a project together.

For example, you and a few other friends decide you all want to jointly giveaway a freebie or course. You’ll each contribute a freebie or product and then promote each other’s Bundle together. That’s the kind of collaboration we’re talking about! <3

You can have your own collaboration contract in less than 15 minutes by easily following along with my video How-To Tutorial & filling-in-the-blanks. You can send it to 1-on-1 clients in no time! This template is for you if you offer 1:1 coaching, consulting, or creatives services (coaching, copywriting, website design, social media, etc.).

(Pssst! If you’re looking for a contract for an online course and not 1:1 services, check out my Terms of Use template for wellness/health coaches and business coaches.)

Do you want to still be friends after you collab? Then yes! If you have a business, and you want to pair up with someone else who has her own business to sell or promote something, you want to legally protect yourselves. Here are just SOME of the things addressed in a collaboration contract…

  • Who’s contributing what to your collab, so there are no weird feelings or resentment later.
  • How you’re each getting paid and who’s paying for the costs of the collaboration, so you don’t end up footing the bill.
  • Who owns the content submitted to the collaboration, so you still rightfully own what’s yours at the end.
  • & so much more!

Absolutely! Just like any other contract, a Collaboration Contract is legally binding as long as it’s properly structured and contains all the necessary elements of a valid contract. This means it needs clear terms, mutual agreement, and an exchange of value (think: contributions, payments, or services). So when you and your business buddies decide to join forces for that awesome giveaway or summit, this contract ensures everyone’s on the same page legally. It’s like a safety net for your joint venture, ensuring that everyone’s contributions, earnings, and rights are protected and clear. (Plus, it helps keep those friendships intact post-collaboration.)

  • Coaches (i.e., health, wellness, business, money, life, love, career, nutrition, fitness and so much more)
  • Consultants (i.e., Facebook ads strategists, nutritionists, RDs, speaking/PR, and more)
  • Creatives (i.e., copywriters, web designers, branding, graphic designers, social media managers and more)

No, it’s designed for easy customization without legal expertise.

  • Absolutely, it’s versatile for different niches, services, and products.

The template is fully editable to evolve with your business needs.

Yes, it’s crafted to cater to both modalities effectively.
