Your Online Showcase

Is your website doing the job of selling your work? And do you know what you need to do if you hold customers' data? Or who owns copyright in your website?

Showing and selling your work online is an important step in building a sustainable business. If you go down the route of identifying and commissioning a web designer, ensure that terms of your agreement with your designer are clear - covering copyright, design and functionality, time frame and payment. Draft terms and conditions and a privacy policy with the help of a lawyer and then provide excellent customer service and your online showcase will be a success - both legally and commercially.
