Episode 85: Template Trouble

Interior Design Business Podcast Episode 85: Template Trouble

Are you using templates to create your letters of agreement?

If you are, it’s really important that you hear this episode! Templates can be helpful, but they aren’t the be-all-end-all of letters of agreement (otherwise known as contracts). 

If you use a template without thoroughly reading it through or making any changes, you’re going to end up in a world of hurt. The problem is that a template is never going to be able to cover the boundaries that you need in place for your unique business and every unique job that you do. 

In this episode of Interior Design Business, we’re going through how to use templates appropriately, the problems with relying on templates for your letters of agreement, and how to communicate your boundaries effectively to every client.

Topics We Cover in This Episode: 

  • Things to look for in a template 
  • What a letter of agreement is
  • The most important things to include in your letters of agreement (contracts)
  • Common mistakes designers make in their letters of agreement 
  • The importance of setting boundaries in your letter of agreement
  • How to make sure you are legally protected 

Follow the advice in this episode and you’ll have a letter of agreement that protects you, communicates your process and deliverables to your client, helps you sell the job, and helps you manage yourself and your client during the job. If you’ve been relying on templates to write your letters of agreement until now, don’t miss this episode.
