48hourslogo.com offers affordable online logo design for small businesses. There is no bigger detractor from businesses than a poor presentation. Everyone not only wants their business to look good, but look professional. This is why logos are so vital – they’re usually the first representation of your business someone will see. First impressions count, and you need to make sure the logo representing you speaks clearly your vision and goals to the viewer. It’s not only true for brick and mortar businesses, but so much more for online businesses.
Logo123.com (a sister site of 48hourslogo) can make sure you get a high quality logo by working with a professional. I’m guessing you’re thinking that it can be pricey, and you’re right. But it doesn’t have to be. You’re probably aware of different ways to get designs online. They have their pros and cons, each doing business a different way. For overall quality, value, and timeliness, I recommend checking out this site.
What is 48hourslogo?
Started in 2010 by a group of freelance designers, they had tried and seen the emerging crowdsourcing model with its benefits and flaws. With this new website, they improved upon the model with some unique twists, enabling budding entrepreneurs to better connect with experienced graphic designers. The way they handle crowdsourcing logo designs attracted designers from all over the world. To date, over fifteen thousand small business owners and entrepreneurs have taken advantage of this logo design service.
When starting a project, you will fill out a brief form and create a business owner account. The form has room for you to be thorough or brief, sharing information about your business name and nature, styles you are interested in, your audience, ideas and concepts you have, and any sample images you would like to reference. After that there are options to set your contest prize amount (minimum $99), making your contest Private or Featured, and adding some Participation Pay to reward participants (it adds a little incentive).
Once that is all decided, set your time (minimum 48 hours) and your contest will be live! Within hours you will begin to receive submission to consider. Rate designs and give feedback on changes you would like to see. Once the time is up, you can select Finalists to further tweak the designs, or select a winner. Once the contest is complete and the Logo Package confirmed, you completely own the rights to your new design.
Why Try 48hourslogo?
There are three major benefits I would like to mention. First, if you are hesitant to try them out, a contest can be started for just $29 down. This will allow you to see what submissions will come in and decide if you would like to finish the contest and pay the prize money. We are that confident that you will be impressed with our Design Community.
Which brings me to my second point: our Design Community is hand picked. We don’t allow just anyone with vector editing software to join. They are proven creatives, so you are ensured to receive more high quality logo designs to your contest.
Finally, our logo contests are all blind. This means that during the first stage, before you select any Finalists, the logo designers cannot see one another’s work. The result is that you will get more original ideas to consider, not copies and variations of your top ranked picks.
If you are small business needing a logo, I encourage you to come try out what thousands of entrepreneurs worldwide have discovered. Quality logo design doesn’t have to be expensive. You can find original and creative ideas for your business through 48hourslogo.com.
