I’ve also made a logo for around 70 bucks, the owner was alright but he requested me to sign a contract of assignment of copyright from which I had to pay taxes of 16%
SimpleSites4U saidI’ve seen Fiverr proposes that can’t fit the profit, not even if the person is living on the cheapest part of the universe. Astonishing people there, btw. Worths a visit.
I think fiverr really has caused some skewed expectations frankly
Actually, there are many countries where you can live better off than an average citizen, solely on income from Fiverr.
^ Just wondering exactly what countries
To get $500, it will require 100 different works to be completed. Transaction fees, time spent on communication – all of these can work for an hobbiest but surely not suitable for a steady business in any country I knew so far.
I haven’t been to Fivrr but I am guessing that one can complete at least 4 tasks in a given day. $5 * 4 tasks * 22 days * 55 (USD to INR) = 24,200 a month. After expenses, say Rs. 21,000 a month. I know a lot of people in IT who work for that much. And it’s twice the per capita income.
Also, if I assume that one can complete 5 tasks in a day, well, congratulations, one can earn as much as a fresher working with the largest IT company in India.
No offense but $70 or $2-$5 for unique logo is equally funny. Not long ago there was a thread where fellow authors was competing for I think was $40 unique logo. Keep it up fellas soon you will make logos for$0.50
None taken. The point is i asked for 70$ because i wasn’t sure how much i must charge for a logo.
I never go on Fiverr and can’t remember where I heard this, so take my comment with a grain of salt but I remember reading that lots of people doing logos on Fiverr were just using templates.
I see many of you talking about Fiverr. Is this site worth trying? I mean how often did you got screwed on this site?
Either its Web Design or Graphic Design or Logo Design from time to time you receive a message or two from “smart” people asking “smart” requests. I will share one with you that stunned me ( not really…but it made me laugh till i cried): someone contacted me and asked for a logo. I said ok what’s it about? He said: something simple “no bling blings” and then asked for how much i will make the logo. I sent him my price ( i said 70$ i know it isn’t too much ) and then he said ” whaaat? i was thinking about 2-5 $.
What do you think? :))Please share your funny encounters with the “smart and creative people”
haha, that would have made me cry too lol, I feel ya, we’ve all been there
@nCrafts, theoretically I can reach mars by next month! I used to take projects from Elance where projects of $50 ~ 500 were possible to complete within 2-5 days, some of those where possible to complete even in 3-4 hours. I (and few of my friends) felt even that was horrible because the time it requires to consistently maintain the work flow. I guess in Fivrr, even 50 successful work completion in a month would be an achievement – unless there is repeat work from same client. Btw, I never imagined something like Fivrr would happen!
