Successful Writer

This week, we share the experience of a fellow WriteThisMoment member, along with a question.

Our writer was asked to rewrite and create new content for a company website. The client could not estimate the scale of re-writes or the final total of new pages. Although they initially agreed to pay a fair price, near the end, they only offered less than half the cost of the work. Understandably, our writer is considering various steps to take in the future,

"I never want to find myself in this position again, hence the need for a contract."

Do you have any thoughts, suggestions or pointers on this situation? Should he try to stick to some templates contract terms in the future? (And can anyone share any templates?). Should this be something clarified under a Statement of Work? Would a more clearly phased approach be suitable in this situation? Clearly, this is not a situation we want to find ourselves in.

Please reply to this email with all suggestions!
