What to include in a freelance web developer contract.
Many businesses need to hire web developers to make apps or custom websites, creating a demand for freelancers with web developer skills.
Web developers turn a web designer’s vision into reality. Developers have the specialized coding skills needed to turn a simple web page into a functioning tool. Because many companies only need a web developer part-time, many developers turn to freelance work to supplement their income.
How to create a freelance web developer contract.
A well-written freelance developer contract protects the developer and their client from any misunderstandings. Because they include how a freelance developer works, these contracts can help a company find a freelance software developer that matches their specific needs. Every contract will differ slightly, but they should always include a few key elements.
The following essential items should always be included in any freelance web developer contract:
- A clear description of what the web app should do
- The software language you will use to create the site’s functionality
- Your project fees
- A description of any site maintenance work you will provide
- How often you’ll be paid as you develop the site
- A place for the client to sign and agree to your terms
