    How much is the cost for sales page? and how much logo cost?

    I've been in different crowd sourcing sites named 99design, mycrobusrt, crowdSpring, designClue and won several times in logo making contest each sites.

    The cheapest logo I've won was $150 and the higher one was $750.

    Just wondering why other designer asking $30 for logo? sounds weird. <-- is it guarantee that the logo was original and not just taken from elsewhere?

    want to hear your feedback guys.

    Thanks.

    It all depends on your quality, if someone pays you $750 for a logo or a site you won, I assume you did a good job. I never approach any project when it comes to designing anything for under 1k. But I do only take on new clients only when its through a referral as I do not search out new work any more.

    As with most things you get what you paid for. Ordering a logo from Fiverr is a waste of time, the chances of you getting anything you are satisfied with are very small unless it's for a throw away project. $750 is ridiculous. You should be able to get an excellent, original logo from a very good designer for $150.

    I had tried ordering logo on fiverr. Although the result was not satisfactory, but it's a feasible option if you're running on a limited budget. With my latest venture on a health related website, I plan to hire a professional designer to design a pro logo for me.

    That's what I am taking about..cheap cost of logo will surely get a cheapest/poor concept which just maybe icon are taken from somewhere.

    Big companies get their logo on crowd sourcing sites to insure its 100% original and not just copied or overused design.

    I have also a walk in clients and charge them $100 for logo with 3 initial concept and unlimited revisions but since other freelance sites offer as low as $30 for logo?? what the heck the logo looks like?

    I've attached a winning entry of mine which cost $150 for cirque entertainment logo and took me 1-3 days to come up with that final output.

    If all designer have their standard of making a professional logo's I don't believe logo will just cost $30 or less. That's why on my part minimum professional logo is cost $100.

    It's really simple.

    If you hire a professional, he will request 100-150$ minimum for a simple logo.
    BUT, you can also hire a young man who's making graphics for hobby for even 5-10$ and have an excellent and unique result as well.

    There are hobbyist designers that are good enough to do that gig for 5-10 bucks.

    No you don't, I've tried it before. The very few decent providers are inundated with orders and will most likely never get around to delivering yours or even answering you. The ones that don't have a queue are pretty terrible. It's best to pay a little more on forums and get one for $20-30 if you can't do your own.

    I have tried Fiverr for a logo design and it wasn't very good.
    I guess you pay for what you get.

    scabby cheap logo that looks generic but more professional than anything I can churn out ? Fiverr and there are some good graphics guys who can rough you up something that will look okay on a throwaway website. For a site that I actually want to look good, then $25 to $50 will get me exactly what I want with multiple revisions. I know what good design looks like and Iknow what I want my logos to look like so I cant imagine why I would have to spend any more than that.
