How to make some extra cash designing templates and logos on eBay!
Logo Design and Templates on eBay
Logo Design is an exciting business for designers on eBay. It allows artists to express their creativity and make ends meet at the same time. If your a decent designer you can put your talent to work.
Artists and designers love to make money with there work and why not? You get to display your creativity and have fun while doing something you enjoy. It’s not always the easiest task putting your creativity to work for you, there is often a lot of competition in the field because it’s enjoyable.
Many artists and designers, perhaps, do not realize that there is an entire customer base on eBay just waiting to pay them for quality designs and templates.
How to get started.
If you’re a designer or wish to become a designer and haven’t created professional logo graphics. I recommend that you study the art of logo design before starting your portfolio. Simply because logo design is quite different then other types of design. Study professional corporate logo design works. Once you feel that you have sufficiently studied the subject and are proficient, it’s time to start creating your logo portfolio.
Start with a collection of generic designs that can be applied to many different companies. This will be your stock collection. You can sell these over and over with minimal customization. Offer slight design modification on each stock logo for a fee.
In addition you can offer complete custom work based on the customers request.
Generally speaking the price range is between 20.00 and 100.00 dollars for a completed work and if the seller/designer is great at design they do sell, actually they fly off the shelves.
Take a look at this seller for an example of just how successful you can be on eBay.
eBay themselves offer standard template designs for eBay sellers but the designs often leave something to be desired. If a seller wishes to use them, they must pay each and every time and that can really add up.
You can fill the need for templates with a one time fee template. The benefit to the customer is they can use it as many times as they wish without the reoccurring fee. The benefit to you is that once the template has been created you can sell it over and over again. Work once and benefit forever.
Template designs often sell for 3.00 to 9.99 for a single design and ship on disk with a standard shipping fee of 2.29 to 2.49 which easily covers the cost of the auction, postage, and the disk itself.
A few more ideas
In addition to offering a single design you can also offer collections of design, with a higher selling price. This will come in time, perhaps, after you’ve created and sold several single designs you can create a compilation of your work.
When creating your auctions make sure to use the design you’re offering. That way the customer will know exactly what they are getting and it makes it easy to refer to in your sales copy.
