How Much Should We Charge for Rights to Celebrity Interviews?

TheGlitz&GlamourOfHollywoodFILTER: I’m part of a small start-up that films celebrity interviews and slaps sponsor’s logos on them. Well, in theory, anyway. Up till now, we haven’t had any sponsors. Now we’ve finally gotten our foot wedged into an advertiser’s door, but we don’t know how much to charge! [more inside]

My son wants to use Facebook to raise funds for college

I am asking this on behalf of my son. He has set up a Facebook Group titled something like, "If a million people join this group, it will help me go to college." His idea is, once he has a lot of people in the group, he'll have a URL set up with ads on it, which he can tell his group to click on. His question is: what's the next step? He doesn't have a bank account yet, he's not sure how best to stake out a URL, how to parlay clicks into his college fund, or if there are other, more effective ways to implement this. And I am of little to no help; what steps can I take to help him?

Help me find this ad.

Help me find this ad: American Express ad in a magazine, early 1990s: a classroom, fifth grade maybe, kids at desks in traditional rows. Books open on desks, maybe a teacher at the blackboard. One little girl's open book shows an American Express card instead of what should be inside the book. The implication is she's daydreaming about what she wants to buy.
