What is the typical offer to an Advisor of a pre money startup and what you get in return?

Hi, I have been in contact with a fellow but more experienced Entrepreneur for a while now and I believe he can add a lot of value to our product as a formal Advisor. 

As we haven't had previous experience on this, I would like to ask you what should I offer him as "compensation" taking into account that we are a pre money startup and also what should I ask in return (e.g. Call every two weeks plus x) for our relationship to be accountable and successful.

Thanks in advance for your help!
