Book Updates + Misc. Thoughts
I’m sure I’ve forgotten some things in the book…I’ll enter the stuff I missed on this page, so check back often.
Book Update 1: Save ALL Contracts
September 1st, 2020
I’m super excited to submit my very first “Book Update,” a.k.a. “stuff I forgot to include in the book.” And here’s a good one – it’s all about affiliate contracts:
Well duh, seems simple, right? But as the years go on, it’s easy for contracts to get lost. Here’s a real-life example and something that happened to me just this week!
I needed to find two contracts: one contract, because an affiliate was asking for a copy of their deal (that’s usually never good)…and a second contract because I needed to see some pertinent details from another affiliate who was violating the deal. The problem was, neither contract was anywhere to be found.
The obvious question: Doesn’t your syndicator keep copies of all contracts? Well yes, of course. The problem is, I’ve had three or four different syndicators since both of the aforementioned deals were signed. It’s all too common for paperwork to get lost over the years: whether you’re switching networks, dealing with staff changes, and of course those inevitable computer crashes – I implore you, as the host/producer, to also keep your own copies of every contract! Ask your syndicator to send you copies of every deal, and keep them in a safe place – on a drive/computer and physically, on paper! Trust me on this – it’s so easy to do and can save a lot of potential headaches.
