Launching A Contest

For Naming contests, you will start receiving your submissions within few minutes of launching your contest. Since our creatives are located across the globe, you can expect to receive submissions 24 X 7 throughout the duration of the brainstorming phase .
You can choose a duration from 1 day to 7 days. We recommend a duration of 3 Days or 5 Days. This allows for sufficient time for entry submission as well as brainstorming with creatives. If you take advantage of our validation services such as Audience Testing and Trademark Research, both will be an additional 4-7 days (3-5 business days for Audience Testing and 1-2 business days for Trademark Research).
About 70% of our Creatives are located in the United States and other English speaking countries (i.e. United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia.). We utilize an advanced rating score algorithm to ensure that high quality creatives receive more opportunities to participate in our contests.
While it is unusually rare that you will not like any names provided, we have a few options in case this problem occurs:
  • If the contest ends and you have not yet found a name that you’d like to move forward with, we can provide complimentary extension of your contest as well as a complimentary consultation with one of our branding consultants (a $99 value).
  • By exploring our premium domain marketplace you can apply the contest award towards the purchase of any name listed for sale.
  • If you choose the Gold package or Platinum package and keep the contest as "Not Guaranteed", you can request a partial refund if you choose not to move forward with any name from you project. (Please note that the refund is for the contest award). Here is a link to our Refund Policy
Our naming competitions start at $199, and our logo design competitions start at $299. Also, there are three additional contest level that each offer more features and benefits. See our Pricing Page for details
Yes! We have many contest bundles - our most popular being our Name, Tagline, and Logo bundle. Bundles allow you to purchase multiple contests at one time and save as much as from $75 - $400. You can learn more about our bundle options on our Pricing Page.
You can select a Non Disclosure Agreement (NDA) option at the time of launching your competition. This will ensure that only those contestants who agree to the NDA will be able to read your project brief and participate in the contest. The contest details will be kept private from other users, as well as search engines.

Buying From Marketplace

When you purchase a domain from our premium domain marketplace, you will receive the exact match .com URL, a complimentary logo design (along with all source files), as well as a complimentary Trademark report and Audience Testing if you’re interested in validating your name.
Once you purchase a Domain, our transfer specialists will reach out to you (typically on the same business day). In most cases we can transfer the domain to your preferred registrar (such as GoDaddy). Once we confirm the transfer details with you, the transfers are typically initiated to your account within 1 business day.
We offer payment plans for many domains in our Marketplace. If you purchase a domain on a payment plan, we hold the domain in an Escrow account until it is fully paid off. However our team can assist you with making any changes to the domains (such as Nameserver changes), so that you can start using the domain right away after making your first installment payment.

Managed Contests

The 'Managed' option is a fully managed service by Squadhelp Branding experts. It includes a formal brief preparation by Squadhelp team and management of your contest. Managed Contests are a great fit for companies that are looking for an "Agency" like experience and they do not want to manage the contest directly.
Our branding team has directly managed hundreds of branding projects and has learned several best practices that lead to successful project outcomes. Our team will apply all best practices towards the management of your branding project.

For Creatives

We are open to anyone to signup. However, we have an extensive "Quality Scoring" process which ensures that high quality creatives have the ability to continue to participate in the platform. On the other hand, we limit the participation from those creatives who do not consistently receive high ratings.
When you initially signup, you are assigned few contests to assess your overall quality of submissions. Based upon the quality of your submissions, you will continue to be assigned additional contests. Once you have received enough high ratings on your submissions, your account will be upgraded to "Full Access", so that you can begin participating in all open contests.
We handle creative payouts via Paypal or Payoneer. Depending upon your country of residence, we may require additional documentation to verify your identity as well as your Tax status.
