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. As such, Strong Logos is created as an online marketplace to give these designs a new lease of life. 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.

EDIT: Strong Logos has decided to stop their online marketplace

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.

EDIT: If you forgot your password, don’t try to log in too many times. I just got my account blocked for doing so
