Deal of the Week: Bundled Set of Web Services Contracts.

thumbnailFreelancing is a minefield, and if you don't traverse it properly you can find yourself in real trouble, fast.

Just browse through any freelance advice board and you'll see hundreds of horror stories: clients who won't pay, clients who steal work, clients who demand unreasonable scope-creep, even clients who'll sue you.

But that doesn't mean that you can't make a success of freelancing, you just need to ensure that you protect yourself.

Which is why we're so pleased that our sister-site,, has arranged this fantastic deal on Vandelay Premier's excellent Web Services Contract Bundle:

Social Media Marketing Services Contract Template: it's so tough to define roles for media marketers and this essential template includes key sections on liability limitation, indemnification and fees.

SEO Services Contract Template: if you're providing SEO services then you must cover your back with a contract like this. It includes the scope of the project, payment terms, client obligations, intellectual property and more.

Web Design Contract Template: scope-creep is the bane of most designer's lives. Get the project terms straight from the get-go with this essential template. Use it to define your project for complete peace of mind.

Web Design Contract Amendment Template: of course, sometimes the parameters of a project will change. That's not always bad. But if you try to amend the original contract you'll throw the whole thing open to misinterpretation. What you need is this contract amendment template; make changes without nullifying the original agreement.

Website Maintenance Contract Template: just how much are you responsible for when it comes to maintaining a client's site? Are you responsible if the server crashes? What's the minimum amount of acceptable up-time? If you don't want to be held liable for loss of business when the site is down make sure you use this template.

Copyright Authorization Template: copyright is a very thorny issue, and nefarious designers will use assets without permission. But you're not one of them, are you? No, you do things the right way by securing permission with this template.

HTML Invoice Template: of course, it's no good producing great work if you don't get paid. Loving design is one thing, but we've all got bills to pay. Invoice the right way with this HTML and CSS invoice template.

Simple Identity Set: and as a great bonus template this identity kit, ready to take your own logo and details, is included too.

When it comes to legal liabilities, peace of mind is priceless; but for a limited time only, you can buy it from for just $24, that's a 43% discount!

Have you had legal problems with clients? Do you wish you'd had a contract protecting you? Let us know in the comments.
