What goes into a contract?
While I am an Indy user, the program is not currently available in Nigeria or Russia.
Fortunately, there are a few other tools that have great, legal contracts, at various prices. But first, what is Indy?
Indy (weareindy.com) is a freelancing platform that just so happens to cater to virtual assistants (among other niches). It's also one of the most affordable products on the market. But if Indy doesn't quite fit your needs, there are two other options we can explore.
Koffee Klatch (https://www.koffeeklatch.co.uk/virtual-assistants-global/)
If you are based in (or works with clients in the EU or UK), you may want to use a contract service like Koffee Klatch (KK) instead.
The EU and UK have data protection laws called GDPR. In simple terms, GDPR rules mandate the way in which we can use, process, and store client's personal data.
Believe it or not, the USA does not have GDPR rules, so we don't need any additional details in our contracts about security client data. 😵💫
If you're a global freelancer and live outside of the US, UK, and EU regions, you may want to check out Fiverr's own platform.
Fiverr (https://workspace.fiverr.com/contracts/) is GDPR compliant and is also available across most countries. It's easy to change your currency too, in case you preferred to get paid in your country's official currency.
Be sure to take your physical location into consideration when deciding which platform to use for contracts and onboarding. Even though we'll spend more time over the next few lectures building a contract specifically using Indy, rest assured that the things that go into the contract are standard - no matter what platform you use.
