Advertising Contracts

 5:58 pm on Mar 13, 2009 (gmt 0)

Hey Guys,

So my company does quite a bit of online advertising. Mostly banner ads but some contextual advertising as well (wherever there is high potential).

Does anyone have a sample contract for these kind of deals? Also, do you just simply send over the attachment over the e-mail or use some online contracting service website to do this? If so, which ones do you use?

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

I dont even use contracts. I send an electronic invoice via email. All of the specifics are on the invoice. Keeps it real simple.

i recommend you do use a signed contract that you receive signed by the purchaser by fax to prevent any credit card charge-back disputes that may arise if the buyer changes his/her mind. as long as you write down what you are providing for the client and @ what cost, your address and phone number on your company letter head you should be fine, but check with a lawyer to confirm.

just ensure that the client fills out his/her name credit card number expiration date, security code if necessary, and signs it; that's your proof in case he/she claims that a charge was unauthorized.

there is an electronic fax service that worked great for a company with which i worked a few years back, but the name escapes me; it allowed the client to provide an electronic signature by inputting verifying information; you may want to ask a lawyer if whatever solution you use will stand if a dispute arises.

as an addendum: this thread links to an article that discusses whether electronic signatures are legally binding:
