Hi, as I travel quite often recently and sometimes I forget to pause or "unpause" my LG account - some idea occurred to me. What if when leaving we use bulk editor to rise our prices to so high level that nobody wants to buy our logos? I mean price rise in order of $1000 and more.

Potential benefits:
- our logos don't vanish from the web for a time of travel
- higher profits for LG (and absent designer if he gets any percentage of the sale) in a rare case someone decides to buy logo anyway
- no automatic "unpausing" of account without our knowledge (Recently I left for more than two weeks and was sure that I paused mu account - when I was back I found it wasn't paused. It was less than a month!)

Is it a good idea or I'm missing something?

I think this is not a good idea.
1. Scare customers (common) from the site, because On such a holiday, there may be 10-20-30 people with a large total number of logos (the cost of which will be $ 1,000, unfounded). There will be rumors that LG prices are high.
2. There is a possibility of buying a logo for such a price. Believe me, the client will be very offended if no one responds at the time of purchase, because the designer is resting.

Thank you for your answer. That's what I see:

1) Currently we have around 600 logos priced &1000 and more on sale. I don't think that designers taking holiday would add much more to this number. Besides, there is also a way of thinking (which I don't subscribe to) that making you logos expensive makes you a better designer. The same funny presumption can be attached to the site having expensive logos so LG prestige could even grow...

2) Currently LG steps in 24 hours after sale if designer doesn't respond. I think that they would be more than happy to customize $1000 logo. Designer also would get almost the same cash as selling logo for say $150.

Jacek, Not every logo can cost 1000 dollars. The prestige of this, unfortunately, does not rise. On the contrary. In the steep boutiques can not see the queues and excitement.
Here need to come up with another solution.

Hi sculptor,

I don't think it's a good idea. If you forget to pause/unpause when travelling, what would be different with the raising/lowering of prices? Won't you also tend to forget to do that? With pause/unpause at least it automatically returns to normal after 30 days.

As a client I wouldn't be happy if I pay $1,000 for a logo only to find out later that the designers on the site I bought it from sometimes raise prices to prevent sales. Perhaps I could have paid $150 if I waited a week. Perhaps next time I see a $1,000 logo that I like I won't buy it, because I don't want to make the same mistake again.

I'm really surprised with your way of thinking. What I learned about logo design and art in general is that price is quite irrelevant to the content. Price is a creation of it's own.

But I'm not thinking about selling $1000 logos but rather about not constantly vanishing from sight. I guess it's better to have your work displayed with bloated prices than not have it displayed at all.

I think we should distinguish between pricing in art and pricing in design. In art, the artist and the provenance are major factors. A bad Picasso is more valuable than a brilliant painting by me :|
In design the content is far more important and probably the main factor in determining the price.

I agree that price is in the eye of the beholder. Sometimes logos sell for far more (or less) than I would have estimated. If someone sees a $1,000 logo that is perfect for them and they don't mind parting with $1,000, great! That said, I still think the price has be within a range that the designer thinks is reasonable. If the designer thinks $1,000 or even $3,000 is reasonable I have no problem with it. I just don't think we want a scenario where designers knowingly overprice logos, especially if there is a pause function that can do the same job.

Ajleroux, Thank you for your answer. I can sense that you don't like this idea of price movements so I will probably stay away from it.

From my point of view this idea looked quite innocent. Rinsing prices to match most expensive logos to leave account active seems to be a better option also for Logoground. Anyway, you are creator of this site so you know better.

I agree with @ajleroux and @FuturaSan, raising prices just to reduce sales possibilities and keep logos visible is not appropriate, I think it is not honest. It has also happened to me, sometimes I know that I will not be available, and I am afraid that my logos are not visible during that time, but it is my responsibility to use the pause button properly, and then calmly do what I am going to do. People appreciate honesty, we must take care of customers, because our work depends on them, and they will be our best publicity :)
