We seem to be in a constant struggle to find a talented Graphic Designer. I decided to try and solve this by experimenting with 3 different creators on Fiverr, each at a different price point. I created a 'Project Definition' for the new 'Ambassadors' campaign and gave the EXACT same info to each creator. They were also given the Social Media Guide, Branding Guide, logo files, examples etc. I also decided to push the same change request on to each of them, to see how that process worked too. Each creator was to provide an image in Twitter and Instagram formats, and also the PSD or AI source files. Here is a summary of how that went.
I will name the 3 F
reators FC1, FC2, and FC3.
Cost was $22 USD.
Required a LOT of hand-holding and guidance. Communicated maybe 15 times over 2 days. Received 1 image, that was so poor, it was not usable.
Cost was $53 USD.
Required a LOT of hand-holding and guidance. Communicated maybe 10 times over 2 days. Received 1 image. Image was OK, but still missing URL etc. Decided we are not going to use his image.
Cost was $88 USD.
ZERO communication until 30 mins before deadline. I thought the guy had bailed and I was going to get a refund. Nope. He absolutely NAILED it, and there was nothing I had to ask him to correct. The 'test change' I asked for was done in less than 2 mins. He provided 3 images, so the price per image was VERY reasonable at $29 USD.
I can't begin to tell you how valuable it is for someone to just 'get it' and DO IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME is. He researched our Twitter and IG feeds first, so he knew what we were expecting. That made the process extremely easy.
First image he provided has been published and within a couple of hours, we had 3 or 4 people join Discord asking to become Ambassadors.
Build With PIVX:
I immediately then started a new project with FC3. This one is called the 'Build With PIVX' campaign. He will be providing 5 images, in Twitter and IG file formats, and again it will include PSD/AI source files, so we can make edits as required later. Cost for this effort is $138 USD, which is approx $28 USD per image. Delivery is today. They will go out on social soon.
I have multiple other ideas for campaign images, but I am happy to entertain submissions from the Community. This creator has a series of questions that need to be answered, and I can do that as they are pretty straight forward and likely the same each time for PIVX, but you will need to decide EXACTLY what TEXT is on the image. You will also need to provide a description of what the image needs to look like and what 'message' you want it to communicate. I can walk you through this.
I like the idea of getting multiple image designs for the same purpose. This way, if there is one we just don't like, we can ignore it. Also, we can post often, without using the same image over and over. I think that helps keep the message fresh, even though the text remains the same.
Current price for PIVX = $0.150 USD
|Item:||Amount: ($USD)||Amount: (PIV)||Balance: (PIV)|
