Making Money on Strong Logos

As a logo designer, chances are you will have quite a few designs lying around that were rejected by clients — which also means a lot of time and energy gone down the drain.

It’s a win-win situation: buyers are also able to find a design that’s perfect for their needs, and you get paid in the process.

Earnings for April, 2017

Recently, a user on Reddit recommended that I post a monthly income report so as to increase my credibility, which I feel is a great idea; it also gives me a chance to review my goals and objectives for success.

In total, I have earned 3,076.92 USD this month, with almost all of my income coming from projects. ~$10 came from passive income; I’m looking to promote my designs as a brand, so hopefully I’ll have more success next month.

Making Money on SunFrog

SunFrog is quite different from sites like Redbubble; it’s not a print-on-demand service per se, but actually relies on affiliate campaigns to sell designs. You will find the most success on SunFrog if you already have a social following that you can share your own campaigns to. Otherwise, you will have to wait for sellers to use your designs in their campaigns before you can make money. As such, it’s not the best form of passive income, but as the saying goes, something is always better than nothing.
