Web design industry nowadays are not as lucrative as it used to be. With the emerge of crowd-sourcing design company such as 99designs, many potential clients prefer look for a wider selection and within budget range for their next projects. Instead of hiring a professional web design company which might cost them thousands, they sought out to crowd sourcing design company like 99designs where you can get many designers working for you for price less than $1000 and you will have the freedom to choose from hundreds of design proposal from designers and finally you will award 1 designer only for the price.

I know this might seem unfair to all the participant designers but upon entering the crowd sourcing project or contest, they (the designers) know the risk that all their designs work might not be awarded or paid. There’s an invisible agreement between they (the designers) and the crowd sourcing client so you cannot expect some compensation for your work which may lasted for weeks and maybe months.

Nether-less to say, crowd sourcing sometime works better than hiring a web design company, take a look at this infographic which break down the different between professional and amateur web design.
