Snag Your Logo

Don’t have a logo? Or are you overdue for a new one? If you’re just getting started (or looking to refresh your business’ image), you don’t have to spend a fortune on a graphic designer.

Here are 6 places you can find a contract designer who will deliver the goods quickly and affordably*:

  1. oDesk.com
  2. MyLogoMyPrice.com
  3. LogoMaker.com
  4. LogoTournament.com
  5. Fiverr.com
  6. eLance.com

When you hire a designer, whether for $5 or $500, it’s helpful to do some “due diligence.” For example:

  • Before you contact anyone, build one list of questions you plan to ask each designer you interview
  • Look through their portfolio before you sign on the dotted line
  • Keep good records about what you’ve paid and what deliverables you expect in return – including copies of all contracts

Finally, resist the urge to pick a designer solely by price. Remember that you sometimes get what you pay for.

You don’t have to wait until you’re ready to build full-blown website to create this basic piece of branding. Simply adding a logo to your email signature is a great way to boost your professional image, and it doesn’t have to break the bank!
