Social Media Management Agreement
Social Media Management Agreement
Are you a social media manager tired of clients who want an insta-following and nickel and dime your monthly invoice? Are you ready for a "real" contract that can save your hard-earned profits (and sanity) when helping as a social media manager, freelancer or agency?
Get this attorney-drafted, industry-tested, editable legal template specifically drafted to help social media managers confidently serve their clients.
This Social Media Management Service Agreement is perfect for outlining the responsibilities and expectations when you are a social media manager, copywriter, ad manager, SEO specialist, graphic designer, community or product manager or another freelancing professional with digital deliverables.

payment details, including expenses and late fees
cancellations and refunds
liability disclaimer on SEO and algorithm results
client timeline and "homework" expectations
backup hourly rate for out of scope add-ons
disclaimer and liability protection so that if things go wrong they don’t REALLY go wrong
contract kill-button clause
PLUS all of the boring (but important!) legalese that turns this into a real bonafide contract you can feel proud of putting YOUR name on
Grab this contract template and assure your client that you can confidently move forward as a social media manager in a way that matches your brand, professionalism, and your commitment to clarity.
