I have actually referred people to cloudsourcing sites. There is a market for them, a market I wouldn't touch with a ten foot pole.
Like willybefriendly says, you cannot design a logo or website template separately from the company's corporate style. I am unable to have a 'meeting of the minds' with potential clients who ask for it - if I can't convince them otherwise I'll gladly refer them somewhere else.
Choose your clients wisely: the ones who understand the value of your work are the ones who you can make happy, create a lasting business relationship with, and will often become your best source of referrals...
