Need a fashion design? Are you appalled at the prices agencies charge for connecting you with the talented designers you need? No more! Crowd sourcing and design contests will take care of all your fashion design needs- for a fraction of the price of hiring a full time designer.
Crowd sourcing is the future of many jobs. Instead of hiring a staff member or going through an expensive agency, a client in need of a service can go online and access the millions of workers in “the crowd”, or the Internet. These jobs can be anything you can think of- including fashion design.
You can post your jobs to the crowd in two ways. The first is by using online free competitions. You can make design contests where freelancer designers can submit their user created content. You choose the design you like the best, and pay the winner. You can post your online free competitions through a crowd sourcing website. You can find these websites by doing a Google search for “design contests” or “crowd sourcing fashion design”.
Another way to get a fashion design, or even to hire a fashion designer for a single project, is to post a project on a crowd sourcing website. Simply post a description of the job you want done, and freelancers will bid on your project. Choose the best qualified freelance designer with the best portfolio, or the one charging the lowest price, and presto! You have a designer! Try a Google search for “Freelancer”, “Crowdsourcing”, or both to find these websites. Websites such as oDesk, Guru, Elance, and Freelancer are great places to start.
Whether you decide to use online free competitions and choose between the user created content, or post a job and choose the best freelancer, you will save lots of money and time by having your fashion designs created online.
