    The best $30 I’ve ever spent!

    I’d been slowly developing a terms of service document for my business through trial and error and thought it was going to be a work in progress for another 5 years… until Kate released this life saver! It is so clear, concise and THOROUGH. It has changed the way I pitch for business and has given me the peace of mind to know that I am so much better covered from potential disasters (aka PITA’s) in the future.

  2. Libby (verified owner)

    These terms and conditions are great value, providing real peace of mind when dealing with clients. You’re not just buying a word doc, you’re buying Kate’s years of experience in dealing with copywriting clients – the good, the bad and everything in between.

    Kate, I just wanted to say thank you so much for putting together such a great suite of products for new freelancers! I used your proposal template for the first time yesterday to create my very first quote, and around midnight, I thought, what the heck am I going to put in the terms and conditions section?? So I went back to your website and was overjoyed to discover you had that covered too! ? Big, huge thank yous!

  4. Tara-Tamiko (verified owner)

    These terms and conditions not only helped me navigate the legalities of my business. Not only are they presented in a useabilty form (Word doc), but Kate provides notes to guide you.

    You don’t need to be a copywriter to use these T&Cs. You just need to be a savvy business owner who wants to save time faffing about.

    Love these templates. And plan on getting them all! ?

    I’ve bought A LOT of online resources since I started my copywriting business about a year ago. This is the best so far. It’s a total lifesaver and well worth the money. As well as highlighting the gigantic gaps in the T&Cs I was using, it’s shifted my mindset. It’s made me realise that clients aren’t doing me a favour by hiring me. And I have every right to be clear about my expectations and boundaries. Cheers Kate!

  6. Sophia (verified owner)

    Pure awesomeness. I’ve saved myself a whole lot of time and stress by buying this template. If you are only going to buy one thing from the Copy Shop – it has to be this.

  7. Sarah-Joy Pierce (verified owner)

    Bought this template, used it with a client, and finally managed to get a 50% upfront deposit without feeling bad about asking for it – because the Terms & Conditions said so. If you want to get paid, you need this template! Totally worth it.

  8. Emma Reeves

    A thorough and detailed terms of business document that can be adapted to other professions. Definitely worth the money. Thank you.

  9. Carla

    This template will seriously save you so much time, make you look as professional as you are, and may just save you money if you happen to need to chase clients up. It’s comprehensive and detailed and covers a whole heap of clauses that you probably wouldn’t even think of on your own. Well worth it.

  10. Claudia Bouma

    The absolutely essential addition to any copywriter’s toolkit. The Copywriter Terms and Conditions are effectively a safeguard for you and the client. Covering every detail of the copywriting process, this comprehensive template clarifies important aspects, such as hourly rate, revision period, deposit and payment terms, so the client knows exactly what to expect and you get paid when you should. A must for any copywriter who’s serious about running a professional business.

  11. Zoe Simmons (verified owner)

    As a newbie copywriter (but experienced journalist), there’s a lot I don’t know about how copywriting works.

    I tried to Google for days and figure out my own project terms and conditions. But when my computer died and I lost it all, I decided to bite the bullet and buy Kate’s template. And my god, I’m glad I did. It’s way better than anything I could have created on my own, and includes things I hadn’t even thought of.

    I wish I’d saved myself oodles of time and heartache by buying this product in the first place!

    I feel so comfortable now knowing my T&Cs are used by copywriters all over the world.

  12. Kate Crocker

    As a legal copywriter, it’s a daunting prospect to give my terms and conditions to legal clients. But this template is so clear and comprehensive that my Ts&Cs are usually signed off by clients who are grateful to have such clarity about how the project will proceed. Highly recommend.

  13. Laura Robinson (verified owner)

    When you’re starting out it can be tricky to ensure that you set up fair terms and conditions. This document is affordable and easy to use. Thank you.

  14. Melissa Gerke (verified owner)

    This template is a must if you’re serious about starting your own copywriting business. Easy to use, gets you off on the right foot with the client and I’ve even relied on it to chase money through a debt collector. I’d be lost without it.
