I have a friend that wanted me to build a website as his partner. But for some reason he thought he should get 80% of the profits just for having the idea. So i told him to eat shit on that idea. The project basically would include the design, developing, programming, hosting, marketing, and maintaining a site that allows people to trade/sell/buy goods for a specific market. The site would be full of features that I can really get into, but think ebayish for a niche with added features specific to this niche. Anyhoo I think the project would taken well over a month of my time + never ending effort promoting through SEO efforts and online advertising. For some reason he thinks having the idea and doing a bit of offline adverting would entitle him to 75-80% of profits, but I wouldn't never agree. And this person has 0 experience in web development to my 8 or so years. I thought offering 50/50 was very generous. with that said I told him the only way I would do the project was 50/50(and that was generous) or charge him something low X,XXX + a small percent of profits for the continuous upgrades maintenance.
