    What do I do now?

    One of my favorite porn stars has contacted me and asked me to be his webmaster. He wants me to redesign his sites and do updates on them.

    I'm flattered but I've never done design for anyone else. I've only built AVS sites for myself. One of his sites is his escort/info site and the other is a free/AVS site. His current sites are pretty amateurish but he was actually paying someone to design and administer his sites.

    I know I can do much better than what he currently has, but I have no idea what to ask for my services. We had a phone conversion tonight and he offered his content (he shoots his own) and/or money. I took the content deal, but I may be under-estimating my value. I was so star-stricken, I would have done it for FREE!

    He and his partner (also an adult performer) were super nice and I can't wait to get started! Any advice on how I should handle this?

    Who is the Pornstar?

    Feel free to shoot GA or Myself an email or PM if you need any specific info

    Might also be able to work somehting out whereby he could have his site included into Stud Money and you still maintain it for him/them too

    Seriously though, shoot myself or GA an email/PM

    Regards,

    If you do not do the design by yourself, I guess you will find somebody who is willing to do this for a reasonable price. Updates, I guess, could be done by yourself. If you think, you can make it better and you both are going into a winning position, go for it! You probably start slow with site by site, but I think you do not go to miss this opportunity

    Just my two cents worth.

    Always go for the money. It costs them far less if they give you content. And never, ever, do a rev share arrangement with a model. First of all, you have no guarantee that the site will be successful and most importantly, they'll treat you like they own you after that. Business deals should always be transacted in a financial manner.

    I'd be happy to help you understand how to value your work and what to charge on these particular projects if you want to PM me or ICQ me at 1 6 7 9 0 9 7 6 0.

    I will be doing the design by myself. He contacted me because he liked my designs. I didn't solicite him in any way although I did offer to build him an AVS site for free after he first contacted me. I have quite a few AVS sites where he is the featured performer... I figured it was the least I could do.

    The sites he wants me to work on are not paysites. One is a free site that has info, sells items and upsells to his AVS protected picture galleries.

    The other site is his escort info site. These are not huge projects by any stretch, but I think they would be fools not to grow this into a pay site or at least a huge Premium AVS site.

    I initially will be working for free content. The initial offer is for all new sets that he produces. I am being sent 15 new sets, probably a value of around $500... and these are sets I definately would have purchased. So, I think this is a pretty fair deal.

    Assuming you were responding to my post, I understand you will be doing the designs yourself, I was simply offering to help you set the price for your work based on what you said in your original post. You said you haven't worked for a client before and didn't know what to charge.
