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.).

Basically, a client contract is a contract you send to your 1:1 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 a legit contract with you. That means you get paid, protect your content and set healthy boundaries.


Do you want to get paid? Then yes! If you work with clients 1:1 & want to have clear expectations + rules, you should definitely put the terms of your agreement in writing. A client contract makes sure that you can…

  • Get paid by setting out payment terms
  • Enforce your refund policy, since it’s clearly spelled out in the agreement
  • Protect yourself & your company with disclaimers & limitations on liability
  • & so much more!
