My company aims to provide home business owners with a range of powerful and useful tools to help them build their businesses. Our main focus is on automation to provide the following results: more money in less time.
The GimmeTraffic project is a set of traffic automation tools that allow the user to submit content to a wide range of web sites and directories.
Please read the about page on the site to get an idea of where we're going: http://GimmeTraffic.com
We will be selling directly to the end-user specifically in the internet marketing niche. So basically anyone trying to do business online either as a merchant of their own products or an affiliate of other people's products.
They will use this software to get more traffic to their blogs and product websites. Their intended result will be to increase sales and income from the new traffic generated.
For the right designer this is the easiest money you'll earn on 99Designs!
The color scheme is already chosen - see: http://GimmeTraffic.com
NOTE: This was a purchased theme, so I probably would like an additional color in it. But it is what it is. Maybe make the logo black and green, maybe two shades of green, maybe white and green, maybe throw in a new color of your choice. Please use your best design judgement! :)
All we need is a simple, clean iconic logo with stylized text to match, like this:
* By "icon" I mean the graphic portion of the logo - not the text. See my favorite logo examples below - they all have a graphic portion in addition to the text. I'm calling this the "icon".
The icon should reflect increasing traffic to your website. Possibly include the concept of increased sales and revenues (but not if it clouds the graphic with too many ideas at once). Be creative.
Please DO NOT use anything generic (like interlocking arrows, etc). Make sure your design is original and unique.
Some logos (icon + text) I love:
Icons I love:
Other good designs:
The other option is to include the icon in the text, like this:
And here are 3 of MY existing sites with logos that I love:
Hopefully, you get a flavor of the kind of design I like. A great icon and nice stylized text is all I need. I shouldn't even need to say web 2.0, but think web 2.0 - not traditional business.
The logo will go in the top black bar on the website and on a white background in the software itself. It would be great if it worked on a green bg, too, but that's not essential.
Update: No more G's with arrows coming off them. We have plenty of these to choose from if that's how we want to go. Please feel free to continue to submit different ideas.
