Social Media Management Client Services Agreement

$399.00

Are you managing social media for a client? Creating original content, posting on the client’s behalf, and/or engaging on social media on a client’s behalf? You absolutely need the protection a contract provides. The proposal you provide to prospective clients-while likely much prettier than this contract as it’s in your branded colors and fonts-does not provide the necessary protection for you as a service provider. You need a contract that has not just term, scope, fees and responsibilities like a proposal, but also, very detailed payment terms, limitation of liability provisions and more, to ensure you get paid regardless of the circumstances and protect you in the event the relationship turns sour.

If you are managing social media for a client, you are at times acting as that client, whether it be engaging with ideal clients, posting on the client’s behalf, and more. As such, this role creates additional duties, responsibilities and legal obligations that most client proposals don’t address. In order to adequately protect yourself from liability, you need a contract that includes basis legal provisions like warranties and limitations of liability. Beyond that, however, you need a strong disclaimer in place, especially if you have any testimonials on your webpage or marketing materials, so clients know that each client experience is individual, you can’t promise that your services will achieve any particular desired result, and just because X client grew their social media account 10 times over since working with you, you can’t guarantee that this client will achieve the same results.

You also need a strong contract that is going to establish firm boundaries and level set your client’s expectations about the relationship. Your contract should clearly and concisely state when you’re available to clients, how you’re available, deliverables, benchmarks, and more.

Without a strong foundation in place at the outset of the client relationship, miscommunication and disagreements are likely. Likewise, without clear contract terms as far as what happens when a client cancels, you may be left without any remedies should a client ghost you. Or you could end up in an untenable situation where you want to terminate your relationship with a client, but you’re worried you’d have to forfeit the money they owe you, because you don’t have a formal document in place saying otherwise.

With this template, you can protect yourself comprehensively. Rest easy knowing that you’ve clearly outlined what services you’ll provide, what your client can and cannot expect from your services, how and when you’ll get paid and what happens if the client is late or fails to pay, as well as defined your boundaries so to when and how you’re available, so you don’t feel constantly at a client’s beck and call.

If you provide any sort of social media services for clients, including:

 

  • Engagement
  • Creating posts
  • Managing profiles
  • Identifying and targeting ideal clients

 

Then absolutely you do. A proposal will not adequately protect you, nor will it get granular enough as far as intellectual property, independent contractor status, payment failure, limitation of liability, and more.
