Using Logo Contests To Get Tons Of Concepts Cheap!

There are tons of companies out there offering cheap, economical logo design. Some use multiple graphic designers for the same price and offer you a number of concepts but if you want additional concepts and increased revisions you can expect your cost to elevate beyond the original list price.

I found a great place where you can get multiple designers to submit their concepts at an affordable price. There is a webmaster forum called Digital Point that is filled with graphic designers, webmasters, promoters and marketers all with tons of Internet experience. There is a section of the website ( Business >> Buy, Sell or Trade >> Contests ) where people interested in getting design work completed can run a contest and have multiple graphic designers pitch their concepts. These designers are then looking for feedback in hopes that they will win the contest.

In the past I have run a $50 & $100 contest for logo designs and have been very pleased with the results. The $100 contest had 41 submissions and there were 5 that I really liked and one jumping out beyond the rest. I accepted the logo and sent the winning designer the $100. What do you think the cost would be at a logo site to have 41 people submit concepts and offer revisions based on your recommendations. I guarantee you it would be much more than $100.

The quality of the work is excellent and there are some very talented graphic design professionals on there. For proof check out this contest thread for a solar panel company called G-Tech. There were 46 concepts submitted in 24 hours for a $50 contest.

I would recommend that you look around the forum for a bit to see what other people have requested, the length of the contest and what they expected in a completed project before submitting your own.
