    I've started my journey again as an IM'er. Can I earn considerable amount making banners, I'm quite good at them. If yes where should I try my luck. Fiverr has been a pain in the a$#. It is being dominated by few sellers, and they don't even show new gigs, Do you recommend any other places??

    Thanks in advance

    Try forums that are related to business - IM particullary

    Easy to make at least 20$ a day if you keep fishing for clients

    Register at several, offer to do some free work in exchange for reviews just to get a kickstart.

    Or you can go for paid advertising on forums and offer your services.

    P.S. - fiverrr sucks if you are not doing everything automated

    Fiverr is the best place for what are you selling.You just need to watch when they add new gig on the recommended page. Ex:(Monday at 6:03 the gig was publish and after six hours the gig was pick by the system to be on the recommended page,so you make a scheduled when the gig are pick up by the system, it's so easy for my always works)

    Good Luck....

    Don't mean to offend, but could you repeat your quote more legible?

    Order Jr. VIP and setup shop here. Don't sell beautiful designs for less than $XXX, show some samples and prove what you're worth.
    Then charge no less. ;)

    People buy stuff all the time, no matter how good, or how crappy it is - if you know how to sell. Put an ad up, market yourself. Build relationships. Do a good job, and it will spread like wildfire.

    I suggest selling those types on Fivver or on the marketplace here for $9-$10.
    Unless you can design INCREDIBLE logos, people won't pay much more than that. Improve your skill, increase your portfolio and start charging around $35 each; increasing the rate as you get better. Just network around and find people in need of designs or ask to deliver review copies in exchange for their testimony.

    If your work Is quality, yes people will buy.

    Build up a portfolio of past work (with your watermark on all of them of course), get a domain name, and host the portfolio there.

    Keep selling on Fiverr. Don't offer anything too HQ on Fiverr, but try to compete with the competition. I would see Fiverr as an Income supplement.

    If you build up a decent portfolio, pay the $35 (I think) to run a graphics service here on BHW. Also check out other forums and pay to post/post In their marketplaces. Just be sure to show people what you can do :)

    I run a lot of contests on freelancer and sometimes I don't even feel like anyone won. Definitely room to dominate over there. Also 99designs, sales threads on popular IM forums, contacting popular people on Youtube, Soundcloud, etc and asking if they want a site + logo. If you have the skills, there's definitely demand.

    You should start with what he just said. Thus, letting your work do the talking for you. If you don't have enough funds for buying a domain and hosting it, then go for something free like tumblr, wordpress, deviantart or something like that.
