Did you know you should have a contract for every client and every project? You may have learned this the hard way if you’ve been stiffed or had to absorb a cost due to a lack of a contract. Learn more about the importance of written agreements in the 2013 Artist’s & Graphic Designer’s Market article “Negotiating the Contract” by marketing mentor Ilise Benun.
According to Benun, “You need a contract because human relationships are messy, memories are imperfect and communication is often ambiguous. A contract cannot protect you from any of this, but it can bring some clarity and consensus.”
Right now you can access the entire article on our sister site ArtistsNetwork.com. Or, if you’re an AMO art or design subscriber, you can find “Negotiating the Contract” right here.
Keep creating and good luck!
