Ethics/Pricing/Working with friends startup...looking for advice.
I've got a friend/contact who has a product he is working on, and he is webdev illiterate.
So - he'd like me to set up his hosting on my shared server (I told him for $5/mo I could hook him up,) and he'd like me to create a simple "Under Construction" page for the company.
The issue is - This is not an expensive task. I would do it for very little (*What would you guys be charging to do something like this?*)
Also - since this is a startup which I feel confident in, what would you do in my place to perhaps grab shares of the company instead of trying to make a couple bucks doing these kind of tasks?
For example - is it common to create the website and get paid in shares of the company, and what's fair pricing?
The pricing issue has always been tough for me.
Thanks for reading - hope to hear some advice from the kind people here.
