With many businesses making the move towards operating completely online, it’s quite common to find online coaches who help these businesses adapt to an online model.
Whether you’re an online tutoring business or you’re selling e-courses online, it’s important to make sure that your website has the right terms and conditions to protect yourself.
As an online business ourselves, we know exactly what you need to get started legally. And usually, the first place to start is with an Online Coaching Agreement.
What Is An Online Coaching Agreement?
An Online Coaching Agreement sets out the terms and conditions between you and the users of your platform — whether they are students, corporate clients or everyday people looking to learn something new.
An Online Coaching Agreement ensures that you and your customers are on the same page. It provides clarity around important issues, such as:
- How does payment work? Is it on a subscription basis, or do clients ‘purchase’ resources online?
- Can your students copy some of your work and re-use it with others?
- How will you protect yourself from liability?
- What if someone is unhappy with your service and wants a refund?
- What is the process if a dispute happens?
Why Do I Need An Online Coaching Agreement?
Moving educational resources and services to an online platform is a great way to scale your business, as it helps you cut down your overhead costs and access a wider customer base.
However, this also opens your business to more risk. So, you want to make sure you’re doing it right.
Having terms and conditions for your online platform is always a good idea. On top of this, you’ll also need:
- Website Terms & Conditions to set out general rules and disclaimers for anyone using your website.
