So I have to say, that I’m really impressed with 99designs.com and what they created to help you crowdsource your logo design.
For my wife’s company, we used a local designer for her logo (which you can see here) and were really happy with the results. What did we pay for this you ask? $1500.
Fast forward a couple of years, and after attending a seminar I learned about 99designs.com. Now, I haven’t tried to crowdsource, or outsource anything yet, even though I’ve read the 4-hour Work Week and fundamentally know there are things that I do during the day I could pay someone to do to free up my time.
So, I decided to give it a go for a logo design for a Real Estate Investment Calculator that I’ve created, that I’m soon going to market online.
The screen grab that I included above is only a sampling of the 25+ designs that were submitted in the 7 days that my contest ran. 25+ designs in 7 days, from all over the world. Amazing. You leave feedback. They tweak their design. And the best part. You only pay the winner.
With a traditional designer, you may get 3-4 redo’s, and that’s it. Here, 25+ designs and as long as you are active in rating and providing feedback to the designers, they are more than happy to update their designs in the hopes of winning the prize.
Now you’re probably wondering how much this all cost. $1K? $2K? Even $3K maybe? Nope. $150. That’s it.
Check out the entries to my contest here, and you’ll probably agree they are high quality, especially for $150!
Give 99designs.com a try. I think you’ll be as happy as I am.
