We’ll always do our best to fulfil your needs and meet your expectations, but it’s important to have things written down so that we both know what’s what, who should do what and when, and what will happen if something goes wrong. In this contract you won’t find any complicated legal terms or long passages of unreadable text. We’ve no desire to trick you into signing something that you might later regret. What we do want is what’s best for both parties, now and in the future.
So in short;
You ‘Client”, (Client) are hiring us, BDM Media Pty Ltd (“BDM Media, We, Us OR The Company”) to:
Design, develop and manage a sales funnel built in Clickfunnels, Leadpages, wordpress or other recommended program (Hereafter referred to as Sales Funnel).
The Client understands that there are 3 payments for the Sales Funnel service.
- 50% deposit to initiate project
- 25% on design approval
- 25% on final handover of completed Sales Funnel
Additional fees can apply for domain registration and hosting
Of course it’s a little more complicated, but we’ll get to that. What do both parties agree to?
You: You have the authority to enter into this contract on behalf of yourself, your company or your organisation. You’ll give us the assets and information we tell you we need to complete the project. You’ll do this when we ask and provide it in the formats we ask for. You’ll review our work, provide feedback and approval in a timely manner too. Deadlines work two ways, so you’ll also be bound by dates we set together. You also agree to stick to the payment schedule outlined above.
Us: We have the experience and ability to do everything we’ve agreed with you and we’ll do it all in a professional and timely manner. We’ll endeavour to meet every deadline that’s set and on top of that we'll maintain the confidentiality of everything you give us.
GETTING DOWN TO THE NITTY GRITTY
We create look-and-feel designs, and flexible layouts that adapt to the capabilities of many devices and screen sizes. We create designs iteratively and use predominantly Clickfunnels, HTML and CSS so we won’t waste time mocking up every template as a static visual. We may use visuals to indicate a creative direction (colour, texture and typography.) We call that ‘atmosphere.’
You’ll have plenty of opportunities to review our work and provide feedback. We’ll either share via email, a Dropbox, Google Drive folder or development site with you and we’ll have regular, possibly daily contact.
If, at any stage, you change your mind about what you want to be delivered and are not happy with the direction our work is taking you’ll pay us in full for the time we’ve spent working with you until that point and terminate this contract.
We’ll work with you to develop the text and images into your Sales Funnel. We provide professional copywriting and editing services, shaping your communications until you are agreed to proceed and take the information live. You have the option to provide the text yourselves or have one of our professional copywriters take care of it for you at the rate of $165/hr inc gst
Graphics and photographs
You should supply graphic files in an editable, vector digital format. You should supply photographs in a high resolution digital format. If you choose to buy stock photographs, we can suggest stock libraries. If you’d like us to search for photographs for you, we can provide a separate estimate for that at $165/hr for search plus royalty free image fees.
Browser testing no longer means attempting to make a sales funnel look the same in browsers of different capabilities or on devices with different size screens. It does mean ensuring that a person’s experience of a design should be appropriate to the capabilities of a browser or device.
We test our work in current versions of major desktop browsers including those made by Apple (Safari), Google (Chrome), Microsoft (Edge), Mozilla Firefox and Opera. We’ll also test to ensure that people who use Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 for Windows get an appropriate experience. We won’t test in other older browsers unless we agreed separately. If you need an enhanced design for an older browser, we can provide a separate estimate for that.
Mobile browser testing
Mobile browser testing using popular smaller screen devices is essential in ensuring that a person’s experience of a design is appropriate to the capabilities of the device they’re using. We test our designs in:
iOS, Safari, Google Chrome Android: Google Chrome on Android Emulator. We won’t test in Blackberry, Opera Mini/Mobile, specific Android devices, Windows or other mobile browsers unless we agreed separately. If you need us to test using these, we can provide a separate estimate for that.
Search engine optimisation (SEO)
We don’t guarantee improvements to your website’s search engine ranking with Sales Funnels, but the web pages that we develop are accessible to search engines and designed and configured with SEO best practice in mind.
Changes and revisions
We don’t want to limit your ability to change your mind. The price at the beginning of this contract is based on one design with one revision, but we’re happy to be flexible. If you want to change your mind or add anything new after this initial works, that won’t be a problem as we’ll provide a separate estimate for those additional revisions at $165/hr including gst
We’ll carry out our work in accordance with good industry practice and at the standard expected from a suitably qualified person with relevant experience. That said, we can’t guarantee that our work will be error-free and so we can’t be liable to you or any third-party for damages, including lost profits, lost savings or other incidental, consequential or special damages, even if you’ve advised us of them.
