Your legal checklist for running an online group program
My clients tell me all the time that when they create a new course they worry that someone will swipe their course content, ask for a refund, or won’t make payments on time.
But, what are you to do?
If you’re offering a group program or course this Fall (you know, like with weekly modules, Zoom group calls, and maybe a Facebook group…)
Here’s a little Legal Checklist for you:
1. Be sure you have a clear refund policy.
Whether you give no refunds, partial refunds or a full refund (100% money back guarantee), you want it to be super-clear and in writing.
(If you have no idea what to say in your refund policy, this free guide will help you cover these 4 key elements that should be in EVERY refund policy.)
– Intellectual Property Protection – in case someone swipes your course content
– Disclaimers – so no one thinks you’re giving medical/mental health/legal advice
– Limitation of Liability – so you can, well, limit your liability and exposure
– Refund Policy – see #1 above
– And soooo much more.
3. Remember that Clarity equals Peace of Mind.
By spelling out your course policies and disclaimers in writing, it gives both of you relief and causes fewer Legal Pickles™ and headaches later.
The bottom line is this…
Spell it out now so you don’t have to fight it out later.
Here’s to feeling more safe, secure, confident and empowered when offering your new group program!
It breaks my heart when I hear coaches and practitioners tell me they’re hustling their behinds off, working 24/7, and they feel like they have nothing to show for it.
That’s why I’m so excited about the Launch Your Practice Online series hosted by Hannah Mongiat. It’s full of cutting-edge strategies and inside access to top influencers (including myself) who are there to help YOU leverage your time and launch your practice faster. It starts this Thursday, September 23 and it is free, but you have to save your seat to get access.
