While the legalse can be intimidating there’s a few essentials you’ll need in your business. A contract is the first item that comes to mind for most service based entrepreneurs. You’ve likely got that covered!
Let’s break it down!

These are two separate documents that are typically added to the same page of your site (they go hand in hand).
Terms & Conditions: A legally binding agreement between you and your website users. It outlines the “rules” users must follow to use your website. Aka: It protects YOU
As Christine Scalera, Lawyer and founder of the Contract Shop says, “This is the boring page on every website that we’re all happy to ignore. Until those “OH SHIITAKE!” moments.”
That being said, your Terms & Conditions are there for your benefit! They can touch on important topics like :
You aren’t required to hire a lawyer. Though if you’re not a legal expert it’s easy to miss key details that are there for everyone’s protection. By missing these details you may be negating any benefit of having these listed on your website.
Not to mention, writing these up can be a MAJOR time commitment. (Certainly not the most thrilling task).
I’m a huge advocate for customizing templates! You can find free templates online, but these are often quite generic and again can miss key details relevant to your industry. I use templates from the Contract Shop and can’t recommend them enough!
An easily customizable document that you can save and upload to your website.
If you have multiple areas of your business (An online store, a course, and your main website) then this bundle is for you! It covers additional templates to ensure you’re protected all the way around.
The best part is with these templates the legal language is all there, but it is expressed in a way that is easy to understand (for you and your users!) The Contract Shop caters to small businesses like ours!
Protecting your business legally is intimidating and your time is limited. Don’t pass up an opportunity to protect your business and your users.
DIY-ing is always an option, but investing in a customizable template (written and peer reviewed by lawyers), like those in the Contract Shop, will not only give you peace of mind, it will save your incredibly valuable time!
