Consutant Contract- Template Needed

Posted by Anonymous on 125 Points
I am seeking to become a marketing consultant. I am presently trying to put all of the necessary paperwork in order. Would anyone be able to assist me with either drafting a marketing consultant contract which I may use for my clients or providing me with the key elements which I should outline within the contract.
Thanks in advance for your help.

    1. Situation Assessment
    2. Proposed solution
    3. Deliverables
    4. Timing
    5. Costs and terms of payment
    6. Governing provisions, including NDA, protection of your intellectual property, limitations of your work, etc

    7. Signatures

    There's a whole chapter on consulting proposals (which can also serve as the "contract") in Rasputin For Hire : An inside look at management consulting between jobs or as a second career. There's also a sample proposal/contract in the appendix.

    If you are serious about wanting to become a marketing consultant, you really need to read the book ... not just for the proposal/contract, but also for a bunch of other things.

    You can preview the table of contents, introduction and chapter 1 at , and you can get the book either at the website or through
