Many business owners, independent contractors, and non-profit organizations use Fiverr in one way or the other. When it comes to finding a designer for your professional logo, it’s essential to find the best person for the job. You don’t want to waste time going through several designers until you find the right one. There are also some factors you have to consider. Fiverr.com is a well-known outsourcing site that allows anyone to hire independent artists, designers, and other creative people to design their project for a fee.
One thing many people love about this platform is the price. Most sellers only charge around $5 per project for a basic design or creative project. They add other charges for the speed of delivery, add-ons, and other items that enhance your order.
The main criticism that some have noticed about Fiverr is that some of the quality of designs that you get from Fiverr are not up to par with what you need for your project. When you choose an independent designer to create your graphic plan, you will need to keep a few things in mind.
Tips to Avoid Getting a Bad Designer
1. Check out the feedback received by the designer you are considering.
Feedback is the primary way that you can get a sense of how Fiverr designers do with their clientele. Some sellers have been on the platform for many years and have built up a good reputation for their work. Others are just getting started and may only have a few feedback responses. Be wary of these people but check them out for yourself. Some new sellers and designers will charge less as they build their reputation but they are more risky to deal with since you do not know their background or history of success yet.
2. Contact the graphic designer before deciding to use them for your project.
By contacting the designer before buying their services, you will do some due diligence to find out whether they are someone you can work with and trust. Most sellers and artists on Fiverr can be trusted, but you have to “vet” them first so that you won’t get someone that has poor business practices or who may not do the job you need them to do. You don’t want to waste time dealing with third party designers if they are not going to come through for you. Emailing them on the Fiverr system beforehand will help you to figure out which ones are the best to do business with. Some of the problem is not necessarily that they don’t do good work, but that they do not follow proper business procedures.
3. Look at samples of their work, if available.
If samples or portfolios of the designer’s work are available, be sure to check this out before deciding to deal with them. You can tell by viewing some samples that the designer has done whether you like their work and whether you think it will fit the needs of your company goals or organization for your project.
4. Look at the country of origin and try to deal with only US sellers.
Remember that the United States has certain laws and regulations in place regarding copyright, trade compliance, and other issues. But other countries have different standards. So this means that you are not playing by the same rules if there is a problem. Find out what their standards are by talking to them and checking out their information first.
It is critical to the reputation of your business that you check out the legal standards the designer uses to ensure that you are only getting original work. You cannot afford to get a copyright infringement claim because the designer used a work that was done by someone else or for which they do not have the rights. Because some designers on Fiverr also outsource their work at times, you may be dealing with more than one designer or entity. Make sure you get some agreement through the message system that they are selling you royalty-free content. Also, if you do purchase the design that someone on Fiverr creates for you, you may need to buy “full rights” to use the design in your business logo and other materials.
5. Look at the payment method used and consider how the transaction works.
Another issue you need to keep in mind is the payment and transaction method that the seller is using on Fiverr. While Fiverr has certain types of payments that can be used, you also need to look into the type of payment the seller is using to protect your transaction.
Many designers have their websites, also. They are just using the Fiverr system to gain some visibility and credibility for their brand or design techniques. You can use this to your advantage by thoroughly checking out each seller before deciding to do business with them.
Freelance vs. Design Team
Many business owners decide to use Fiverr or other similar outsourcing sites to find talented designers to help them with their logos, graphic images, or other projects. There’s nothing wrong with that, and if you do your due diligence, you may find a great contractor that you can use over and over again. But it is also a risk because there are multiple levels of talent, ethics, and histories involved with the sellers on Fiverr.
If you want to hire a design team instead, you may find this may be a safer and more cost-effective method of finding a good designer. When you hire a professional design team, you will be more likely to get the results you need the first time and not waste time going through several freelancers or independent contractors until you find the one that can help you.
