here is my situation: I told this guy 2 months ago that I could make him a simple site for $500 ever since then, he has had multiple meetings with me, each one lasting 30 minutes to one hour. the meetings dont accomplish anything, it's a bunch of bullshit that he could say over email. every time he says he is ready to proceed and will give me a check soon. but I have been given no check. I sent him a web design contract, which he has completely ignored. I told him I want 100% upfront, he says he wants to pay $250 upfront and $250 after. tomorrow he has set up yet another meeting. this seems like a waste of time to me. from the way he has been acting, I expect he will be a headache. he will probably have me set up the site and then say "change this, change that" every day. so am I getting greedy or is $500 not enough for this job? should I tell him I have raised my price, or should I try to make it work for the potential word of mouth advertising? I am in the US if that matters.
