    This just shocks me. How can people on fiverr offer 5 logo designs for $3.92(after fiverr and paypal fees)? I am not sure about the quality but this sure does generate a lot of competition for us designers. Anyone who knows about fiverr would never want to ask me for a $50 logo. I mean have people gone mad I can't imagine the work they would need to do for such little reward.

    Hahah Exactly :D....then you get 20 orders and then you lower the Logo gig from 5 to 3 then to 1
    because you have lots of orders people will still buy from you even though you only offer one logo
    and everyone else offers 5.

    you have to over deliver on fiverr at first to get your gig going then you lower the amount you offer..

    I have loads of tricks if you need help:cool:

    That explains a lot. But what if the buyer had very specific details for the design that would require more professional software like PS and Illustrator.

    I've generally bought logos off fiverr that will be a slightly higher standard than what I can acheive with paint...Ive gotten some decent ones and some tragic shit.....I reckon Kez might be able to give you a bit more feedback onbuyer expectation.

    When I need a professional logo I don't even consider going to fiverr. I don't think that the competition would be that much unless they are pumping out really good stuff.

    So that means I got to look for people seeking quality. I just suck at marketing my self online. I am only doing good offline.

    They use templates and change the name or symbol.
    Quality isn't cheap and cheap isn't quality.

    There are gigs with public portfolio so you can see the delivered logos and expect what to get.

    You think $3.92 is too low, I have one guy from here doing logos for $3 as I take $1 from the $4 when I get an order.
    I feel bad about him and send him extra. :(

    Then he isn't going to find what he's looking for in fiverr.

    That is really strange. He is better spending that time working at MCdonalds or something.
