Prova.fm : Crowdsourcing for Banner Designs
Banner advertising has a dual purpose: getting your brand out there, and boosting ROI. The main reason many advertising campaigns fail is related to design – poor design that is. DIY strategies for economy work only for those who are already designers, especially if they are experienced enough to make a market audit, to understand what their targeted audiences like to see, and what they react to.
There is a very important aspect that cannot be overlooked – banner advertising, when done right, targets the short term revenue and the long term brand placement. Consumers might not have an immediate need to purchase a product, but ... [Full Story]

Prova.fm wants to change the face of crowdsourced design.
While other sites focus solely on design, or solely on advertising placement, Prova has the guts to attempt to do both, plus more. That said, let’s take a deeper look at Prova and how what they’re doing makes them different.
It’s the extra features that really set Prova apart. A design, for instance, can get feedback from its target market, then be voted up or down for popularity. When you add this sort of social strategy to a crowdsourced product, it simply makes things more effective ... [Full Story]

Prova.fm is a platform whereby you can start design advertisement contests and have professionals from all over the world competing in order to devise the ultimate campaign for you.

Upon having submitted that information, the contest will be displayed on the site for everybody to take notice and (hopefully for you) act upon it. The deadline is ... [Full Story]

Prova taps graphic talent online
Honolulu entrepreneur David Gash created a graphic design/advertising business that taps the Web and social networking to solicit a variety of designs for clients at an affordable price.
Gash, 29, explains the process this way: A business tells his company what design it wants for a logo, Web site or other project. Prova solicits designs; and the business pays one set price and picks the design — from an average of 30 that usually come in — that best suits the client.
Then Gash moved to San Diego to run it, although he's still working with clients here and trying to get back to the Islands at least once a month... [Full Story]

Prova Crowdsources Advertising Designs For Small Business Owners
Crowdsourcing must be big. We’ve seen crowdsourcing for everything ranging from article writing to T-shirt design, and even designs for greeting cards and sales leads.
David Gash, the CEO of San Diego-based advertising design agency Prova Advertising, is also a big fan of crowdsourcing. In fact, he’s such a fan he’s built Prova’s business model around community-sourced advertising design contributions.
Prova lets a business owner submit a brief, set a price they're willing to pay, and track over 30 designs crowdsourced from freelance designers as they are created, and only pay for the design they want.... [Full Story]

Getting Small Businesses the Creative They Want
Marketing small businesses has always been a challenge. Small business owners often don’t know much about marketing, want it to go away and have parochial tastes. They frequently change their minds. And most want world-class creative and account service for $1.98.

A Must-Try for All Business Owners With a Tight Advertising Budget and No Time

It is free to use - you only pay for an ad you want, and you get to compare actual work for your specific project from multiple designers. In a nutshell, I liken Prova to holding a job fair for graphics designers. Instead of applicants showing up to strut their resumes, designers submit their actual work for you to review...

You know you have a great product that people will love. Now if you only had a banner ad to attract people to your site. Maybe it’s your logo that needs an update so it speaks more to your market. Perhaps you’re all set online, but when someone asks for your business card you sheepishly admit you don’t have one.
