I'll take a stab at one of your questions- deciding on revenue splits.
I'm making many assumptions here (your customer will be selling all
advertising on the co-branded site, you've got your pricing model set,
your customer has been successful in past ad sales efforts, ad sales
don't involve 3rd party).
A good approach may be to start with a 50-50 split on ad revenue
and try to end up in the 70-30 range, with you getting 30%. I have heard
ad revenue splits anywhere from 60-40 to 85-15, with you getting 15%.
Is there a way for you to find out where the customer has ended up
with other negotiations of this sort?
