Today there are many ways of getting work online. It doesn’t matter you are software professional, web designer, graphic designer or article writer there is lot of work available online. You can start your work as freelancer or as a company.
Freelancing is the most popular way of getting work online and you can make good money too working from your home. Freelancing website are not just the source for getting work for individuals but lot of big companies find lot of work on these website. Freelancing websites are mediator between job provider and job seekers. When someone post a work different freelancer bid for that project and job provider picks one freelancers. Sometime as a freelancer you don’t get good rates because of high competition and you lose that work.
Most of the freelance works are fixed rates and some freelancer bid so low that you can’t get that work even you have more talent than other. So what can be the solution of this problem? A good solution can be contest but most of the contests are available for graphic and web designing projects like Logo designing, website designing, business card design, brochure design etc.
Graphic design contest pay good amount per contest for example Logo designing contest pay winner from $200 to $1000+ which is much better than normal freelancing work. In graphic designing contest designers post designs and client choose any one winner and pay contest award. Have a look at some of contest websites.
There are many more website which provide designing contest but I am not going to cover them all.
The problem with these contests is that there are so many providers but only one winner but winners earn good money.
If you are not chosen as winner then all your hard work gets wasted. Thus contest are not good choice for many of designers.
There is another great option to be rewarded if your design is not selected. You hard work can still be paid my selling your designs. Yes if your design is not selected then you can sell your designs on design marketplace. For example you have designed a logo for a contest but your design was not selected now you can make some changes in your design like change company name and some other changes if required. Now list your logo design in graphic marketplace website and you can earn continuously. Your same design can be sold to many people and you can earn good money for your work.
