For buyers, contest holders on 99designs, this really solves their many problems, compared to the website Elance:
1. Saves their time, it doesn’t require guidance and oversight at every step of the process,, just need to submit your request to the website, then go to sleep, once you wake up you will get the finished product.
2. It will reduce the risk. through a website like Elance, you must first select a person to complete your project, and it is risky because the person you select may or may not actually be able to produce a satisfactory product. Something like this doesn’t occur with 99designs, however, because everyone submits a design.
They provide users a simple service. If you need to design a LOGO, you only need to hold a contest on 99designs. Just submit a request on the website, prepay the money to the website, then set a deadline, and the freelancers can make the bid. When the time’s up, you pick a work that you’re satisfied and the website (your prepaid money) will pay the money to the winning bidder to complete the order.
