Logos and Mascots Make You Money

Branding is a very important aspect to running a successful business. We all know that and it doesn’t take much to convince anyone else of this integral fact. It’s also true that logos can play a very big part in defining a brand, so it makes sense for any company to invest proper time and money into creating the right logo.

What do you do if you want to capitalize in this market but you are neither a graphic designer nor a particularly good artist? You can take advantage of the LogoNerds.com affiliate program. Over the course of this review, we’ll explore what LogoNerds.com has to offer and how you can make “easy money” using their affiliate program.

From Professional Logos to Custom Mascots

Before we discuss how you can make money promoting the products and services offered by LogoNerds.com, perhaps it would be appropriate to look at the actual products and services themselves.

LogoNerds.com is a small business logo design service that is meant to be affordable and of high quality. According to the main page, these designs are “second to none” and they offer the same high quality “for a fraction of the cost” of their competitors.


Starting at one end of the spectrum are the professional web logos and professional business logos. Here are a few of the distinctive samples featured on the homepage for LogoNerds.com. Each of these is meant to offer a unique personality, capturing exactly what that brand is all about. For one price, you get your choice of several concepts with free revisions.

If you’re looking to put a face to your company, then you may be more interested in the character mascot design service. Here, LogoNerds.com would produce something similar to the mascots you see on the blogs of Tyler Cruz and Zac Johnson.


Here is the sample that the LogoNerds.com team produced featuring our very own root of all evil. Do you think it captures the personality of our dot com mogul or is it too generic for your tastes? That’s up to you to determine.

Making Money with the Affiliate Program

Even if you don’t know how to create logos and mascots of your own, you can make money promoting them through the affiliate program. With prices lower than the competition, LogoNerds.com might be easier for you to promote.


Further still, you don’t have to sign up for a separate referral program with a separate payment and separate affiliate dashboard. That’s because the LogoNerds.com program is powered by ShareASale. If you already have an account with ShareASale, it takes one click to apply for the LogoNerds.com affiliate program. This way, your monthly payments can be aggregated with your other ShareASale earnings.

The commission rate with LogoNerds.com is 25% and this is on all orders, including any additional services that are purchased. Other notable highlights include referral tracking that never expires and two-tier referrals. This means that you can refer other webmasters and make money from the sales that they refer.

How Much Money Can I Make?

Based on the 25% commission rate, how much money can someone make with promoting the logo creation service? Well, that obviously depends on the sale price and the volume of sales that you are able to refer.


As mentioned, LogoNerds.com has priced itself quite low compared to similar services offered elsewhere on the net. From the order screen, you can see that a web-ready logo can be produced for $27. A single referral here will earn you $6.75.

The affiliate program page offers a slightly more optimistic view, reminding you that referring five logo sales a day results in $1000/month. Even further, refer 15 mascot sales a day and you can earn over $10,000 a month. That’s probably unlikely for most affiliates, but it’s possible.

Featuring easy integration with ShareASale, tracking cookies that never expire, and a reasonable 25% commission rate, the LogoNerds.com affiliate program looks like it could be a lucrative proposition in the hands of the right affiliate. The logos look pretty good too and, considering the affordable price, this should be an easy sale on your part.

    Nice article there. Logos add life to the website and gives an insight into what the website can actually offer you. Logonerds sounds really good and affordable!

    1. I thought the logos were pretty poor for the price to be honest, you can get a proper artist to do you a mascot for the same price and have something ten times better. But that’s just my opinion.

      1. Get money says:

        I would agree with that, the prices are too firey compared to the work.

  2. Okay, the John Chow character mascot is wicked. I like how it looks like it came out of a comic book. And their sample logos aren’t bad.

    1. Gyanguru says:

      I found the same too. But I am kinda confused of the RSS Icon on his shirt. What does that signify???

      1. WAMWAN says:

        RSS is usually associated with Blogs, and John’s a blogger. Hence the RSS logo to signify John’s a blogger, to those who live on Mars.

  3. Dana says:

    Still do not get how logo can boost blog.

    1. james M. says:

      A little logo like the favicon, for instance, in some way builds some form of branding. If the experience on your first visit to a blog with a particular favicon is good, you’ll somehow have no second-thoughts about reading any page later or in the future that has this same favicon because your subconscious had encoded the idea that this site with this favicon is good.

    2. Benjamin Cip says:

      It’s obvious! A Logo is your Brand. People recognize you from your Logo, if you have nothing to make them remember you, how will they remember you? I personally put a lot of importance in my bog brand. It’s as if you bought a product without any logo on it, how will you make a difference from it and other products? People like brand! at least I do! Just give it a try and you’ll see how can logo boost your blog.

      1. Dana says:

        Thanks for your explanation. I consider to create my logo then. πŸ™‚

    3. The logo can boost not just a blog, but any sort of online commerce (or commerce in general). From a webpage standpoint, having a well designed logo makes your page look more credible. A simple page with all text and no graphics seems behind the times; I often wonder if the business is doing well or if the product is good if they can’t devote a small amount of money to make an attractive webpage.
      From a blog standpoint, if everything is straight out of the box with little to no customization/graphics, it doesn’t make the reader feel like you put time and effort into it. Even a text heavy Blog like Seth Godin’s has his famous bald head to associate with.

    4. It can’t boost your blog directly, but it can indirectly, through more people liking your blog due to it looking ‘pretty’ and such, which will result in more long-term readers, and backlinks, etc…

  4. Paula Mooney says:

    Yeah, the John Chow logo looks great.

    They made you look great and captured your spirit and persona — not buffoonish nor cartoonish like Mickey Rooney’s character in Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

    They did an excellent job with that “evil one” mascot.

  5. shibu jacob says:

    I like the name john…logonerds.very innovative and I liked ur thoughts on branding too.cheers

  6. Lol, this character mascot could be helpful for people like me that don’t want to have their photo published on the internet πŸ˜‰ Great idea, and nice affiliate program, may you make many $$$ with it πŸ˜‰ SY

    1. Plus they can make your head too large for your body.

  7. I have been looking for this kind of service for a while now. Thanks John.

    I think I am gonna order a logo.


  8. I totally agree that branding includes your logo and mascot…and I have actually seen lots of bloggers who have taken this next level on their craft.

  9. Nice work on the JC logo – have to dig a little deeper into this as I still run a few logo-less sites

  10. Yes this kind of service we need when we start any assignment or blog.

    I select logo, banner at the start so that they can help me to build my brand.

  11. Your logo could be free if you find out in Google with keywords “free logo design”

    1. Well yes very true … but can you asked them to edit as per your desire ….

      If you are a professional blogger than these kind of expenditure count as investment.

      1. I think you hit it on the head ZK. “If you are a professional blogger” is the key here. For someone who I writing a blog for fun but isn’t devoted to making money blogging, a free logo is plenty.
        Free logos aren’t as polished at custom ones. Smart readers can sense that. By having a more polished professional appearance, you will gain instant credibility.

    2. Sometimes paying for something is better than getting it for free. You get what you pay for.

  12. I agree with this idea. Yes, logo is important in building the brand image of our business, website or even blog. But the most important thing is how we serve our customers well, the product or service that we provide must be in high standard and the best one.

  13. Benjamin Cip says:

    Too bad! I’m already running a $20 Logo Design Contest for my new Blog theme. And already received a lot of Logo Design Concept. If I knew I could get a professional looking Logo for just $27, maybe I wouldn’t have run this Contest. Well, sometimes we have to give chance to unknown talented designers, don’t you think so? If people are interested, I’m still running the Contest…

    1. That is what I did with my logo/mascot. I contacted an amazing illustrator friend from college. It is also a good way to get exceptional work done at a low cost.

  14. EarningStep says:

    lol… your logo look very nice . nice cartoon

  15. Branding is so important at all the given point of time. Your Logo is looking damn cool John ..are you planning to change it on your blog ??

  16. Also, once you have a mascot for your business, make sure that you use that mascot for all of your web presence avatars. Like me.

    There is no doubt in my mind that over time, people who read this blog will associate my dragon with good comments.

    Also, make sure you have a unique mascot that is pertinent to your business. I am in the business of publishing board games, so a dragon makes sense. A dragon resting after a having a minstrel for a nice snack works well for Tasty Minstrel Games.

    Sales are important, and a good brand is extremely helpful in that. Although, possibly more important is not having a ugly logo or no logo, because that makes you look uncommited and/or unprofessional.

  17. fas says:

    This sounds interesting, I will surely check it out.

  18. Paul Norwine says:

    Hey John,

    Great resource! I am actually looking to upgrade my site’s logo / design so this is perfect timing….

    Paul Norwine

  19. fas says:

    This sounds interesting, I will surely check it out.
    Sorry, forgot to add great post! Can’t wait to see your next post!

  20. Vincent Woon says:

    Great designs..One can tell exactly what the site is going to be by looking at the logo or mascot. Your mascot is so you .Are you going to use it?

  21. The Chow Mascot is great. If you could have him pulling a suitcase full of beer, even better.

    1. Or maybe assaulting a panda…

  22. Eric Canja says:

    The fact that they provide free revisions makes it least worth investigating.

    Depending on where you are at in your brand development and how much of a following you have, the mascot idea may be something that would be an option further along in the process.

  23. i think that putting my face on a logo would drive more customers away than it would attract

  24. videostar says:

    It will attracts new customers for chow.com for sure as any other tool.Every detail works here fore success.

  25. I never thought about creating a logo for my blogs. It is actually a great idea

  26. Farai says:

    As always, good post John. I like the John Chow Mascot. It looks good and i believe it speaks volumes about the BIG personality of John Chow. Great stuff.

  27. Thank you John, you gave me great idea for how to make money. ..

  28. You can have logos and good branding but becoming an icon like John Chow is a totally different story!

  29. Miss Nguyen says:

    Hahahah I really like your character up there. Nice Nerds.

  30. Melody says:

    The likeness of the mascot is good, but the font and graphics style (gradient/shadow) for the rest of the logo is what makes it look generic.

    And those other logos……..

  31. Affiliit says:

    It’s amazing how images can change the perspective of people πŸ™‚

  32. G-Roc says:

    Very nice (Borat voice). It’s funny because I was just talking to a few of my writers about getting a logo. I never had a logo, only tagged images with a stacked font. The mascot is also another creative way to make your brand appeal to your readers. Now I need to study this info so I can turn it into money. Thanks JC!

  33. Logo designing has a very big market on world wide web. If , some has a logo designing website which comes in top ranking at Google and yahoo with the keyword like “custom logos” , “logo designs” or “corporate logos” then this affiliation program works best for them. I am really amazed to see this posting.

  34. Stonerrock says:

    Logo is the first important graphic in website , one picture 1000 words , something like a brand name the visitors focus in logos !!!

  35. Get money says:

    To tell the truth, the only thing that looks good in the logo is the mascot. Johnchow.com looks very unprofessional.

  36. Not bad at all for the price. I haven’t looked to see how many file formats they offer. But it would be hard to complain about a decent logo for under $30.

  37. Dean Saliba says:

    Branding is vry important. I paid a local football club some money and now I have my blogg address on their shirts and their web site. Cost me about $300.

  38. Make Money says:

    Logonerds are great, I have used them a few times lately, in fact I have one job in the works right now.

    The best logos and the best prices, what more could you want.

  39. hanks for your explanation. I consider to create my logo then.

  40. Teen money says:

    The logo you selected speaks for itself. This is a good program. I have visited the site to learn more about the affiliate program they offer and I must say I am impressed. You have great ability I must confess to unearth potential affiliate products and you done it again. The mascot you created for your website is it from this site??
