Imagine this: You’ve spoken with a client, they want to hire you, but uh-oh — they ask for a contract and you don’t have one for them sign!
The last thing you want is a situation where something goes wrong at a gig and a contract was never put into place. Unfortunately, contracts are usually anything but simple.
Writing a contract can get complicated and you want to make sure that what is being signed will benefit both you and your client.
So how do you make sure this happens? Enter the Shake app.
With Shake’s new DJ Contract template, the process of generating and signing a contract for your next DJ gig has been simplified.
