    Investment of $5 or More (Needed)

    Fiverr

    The Trick Is to get a fiverr user to make a logo for you there a lot of gigs like that
    'i will make you a professinal logo'
    here are some of them
    http://fiverr.com/users/iamabdus/gigs/create-a-professional-logo?ref=glst-g-ttl
    http://fiverr.com/gig_star/design-quality-logo-as-i-am-99designs-designer
    http://fiverr.com/users/designinc/g...ed-logos-logo-for-your-company?ref=glst-g-ttl
    http://fiverr.com/users/allodenny/g...r-company-website-blogspot-etc?ref=glst-g-ttl

    There are many more gigs like this

    99Designs
    99Designs is The #1 marketplace for graphic design, including logo design, webdesign and other design contests. Over 29000 satisfied clients!
    (It is basically a site where you sell your logo designs)

    The Method
    1. Find A Logo Design project (someone who wants a logo done) in 99designs
    2. Go to fiverr buy a gig that says 'i will make you a professional logo'
    3. go back to 99design and copy the design brief (what they want the logo to look like) of the project
    4. paste and message to the person you buyed the gig from
    5. now the person from fiver will follow the design brief and will understand what to do
    6. once the logo is done post it to the logo design project
    7.(Optional) this is optional and you will need a bigger investment but will greatly increase your chances of getting your logo picked as the winner
    you will buy more logo designs of the same from different fiverr users
    so if you had a $50 Investment you could buy 10 logo designs from fiver.
    So the 99design person will have a higher chance of picking your logo.
    8. See if the person picked one of your logos.

    Oh and i forgot to mention the minimum pay at 99designs is $200

    A Good Example:
    I found a Logo design project that pays $200 then i go to fiverr buy 30 logos of the same kind that will cost me about $150 and i post all of them to that project and one of my logos gets picked i would have earned $50 cause
    i spent $150 earned $200 = $50

    150 - 200 = 50

    Hope You Guys Liked This Method :)

    Good method...but it's not a sure fire way to make cash though...You always at risk..

    Using your example:
    If you spend $150 on Fiverr logos, and none of your logos get picked...you lose $150...THEN assuming you only make the $50 as you said and try again...it means you would need to have your logo picked on THREE separate gigs just to BREAK even and make your original $150 back.

    You are risking $150 to make only $50?? And if your logo does not get chosen even just ONCE...it means you have to risk a total of $600 just to make your $50...(Original $150 plus the 3x$150 to try and make your money back)

    Im not bashing your method at all - and thanks for the share, but i think the way you explained it makes it sound VERY high risk. You'd be better off spending the $600 (or $150) on something else.

    Again, im not very familiar with this method and have never done it myself. I think in the end of the day it all comes down to how active 99Designs is and what the chances are of your logo being picked...

    no offence op but wouldnt your time be better spent learning how to create your own logo`s ? or buying from fiver seller in bulk ? i bought a couple of logo`s from fiver and they were shite and the 1 logo was going backwards and forwards for hours until i just settled for having 5 or 6 ok logo`s rather than the nice 1 i was after . i think the method is pretty good but you need a better way to supply them .

    Of Course there is a risk of losing money but thats why you choose projects that have little time left before they are decided on and don't have many logos made

    Sounds real nice on paper, but I'd be a bit wary to try it myself. There's a reason people go to 99design instead of fiverr for their logos, you know what I mean?

    But cheers to ya anyway.

    I'd have a few reservations about this method. In general, I love the idea of arbitrage, but I think this particular method is potentially full of pitfalls... especially now it's been exposed here! All it takes is for 5 or 6 Blackhatters to start chasing the same client, each with 20 or 30 logos they've outsourced to Twitter... Result: 5 or 6 BHW members, each $100 out of pocket, and a client who is free to pick and choose between 200 lousy designs!

    With the right spin, this kind of thing COULD work, but surely it's better to learn how to produce logos yourself and simply fulfil some of those $200 orders with your own designs.

    Having said that... Big thanks to the OP for pointing me in the direction of an interesting site which I hadn't heard of. A friend of mine is just about to launch a logo design service, and this could be of great help to her.

    most of the posters on 99designs are aware of this shit.
    it will not work.
    job posters knows what $200 logo looks like
    and what $5 logo will look like. so don't bother.

    P.S. Believe in karma dickhead, someone paying some good amount and you getting it done for $5 bucks. put ur self into job poster position and think again. :D

    Decent method, but i already used 99designs with my designs skills and only winned 1 contest after entering 30 others contests. At least, the prize was good :)

    "Dickhead"?? That's a bit harsh! The OP was merely offering an idea.

    Where does Karma come into it? Seriously? Now, IF the OP was taking $200 up front and then trying to pass off a $5 knock-off as a "high class design job", then you MIGHT have a point... (just about)... although many would say that's just business!

    But in this case, I think SilverMovieDownloads is UNQUESTIONABLY in the clear: all he's suggesting is that you can add your (outsourced) designs to the pile of potential candidates. The decision still rests with the buyer.

    If the quality is shit, then the buyer will reject it. If he/she happens to PREFER your outsourced $5 design, that's the one they'll pick. Nobody is being scammed or ripped off. It's a free market, and the buyer can accept or reject any design.

    As I said, I had some reservations about the method - but they were based upon the POTENTIAL RISK to the vendor... not on some strange ethical hang-up.

    Now stop being a condescending prick, and have some respect for a guy who was clearly just trying to share ideas. :D

    Thanks for sharing! :D I will try to sell 5$ for 50$ but not 200$. Someone paying for 200$ should deserve get the best quality, unless your fiverr provider can give that level of quality.

    Thanks again for sharing your idea. :newangel:

    lol i love it when noobs flame each other... realy whats the fight about any way.,... ohh ohhh....some ones p.u,s.s,y hurts...(no offense ladys)

    guys...the method could work.. but yes there is risk...

    i would personaly get a shitload of templates and make them my self.
    post 100 semi shitty logos...free..(save time spent)

    for 200 bucks them make a maybe.....50

    arbitage is good but you need to find ways to eliminate risk and ..boost sucses rates....

    thats the problem i am having right now with employees right now... and my new SEo biz... fucktards are gonna bleed me dry befor i even book my 6th gig..

    That's why I'd try, and then once I get logos, I order gigs for logo improvement and color variations

    This method is with a very high risk, and most of the times will not work...
    I am sorry OP, but have you tried this method by yourself???
    I am pretty sure that it will not work because I have tried to enter in 99design contests by myself.
    I was creating logos by myself, and from 200 different logo contests that I entered, I win only 3 of them...
    so 2 x $200 = $400 + 1 x $300 = $700 in total for me...
    Just make your math, what it will be my earnings if I was outsourcing logo creation with fiver???
    This method can work only if you can hire 4-5 different designers that works for you 8 hours a day for a monthly salary.
    Like this you can make some $$$ :D
    Cheers
