Get Paid to Draw Description

Even though the Get Paid to Draw website looks like an overhyped landing page, it still manages to deliver some meat. As you probably have already gleaned from its name, this product is particularly focused on creative individuals who love the arts, particularly drawing. Get Paid to Draw aims to help these people make money from their talent online.

Get Paid to Draw Detailed Overview

Countless individuals from around the world have a talent in drawing. But with the limited local market in some situations, talented individuals cannot realize their full income potential. In most cases, they use the pencil, charcoal and pen to draw on blank canvas without even thinking that they can make money from doing the exact same thing. As a result, it is estimated that as much as 99 percent of appealing pieces of art remain unrecognized and therefore go to waste.

It takes time, effort and mental ability to visualize and create artwork. It is about time that artists realize the potential of the internet and start making money from their work. The Get Paid to Draw is a guide that helps them do just that. Whether the artist prefers to draw, paint or get involved in any type of graphic art, they can make money online.

However, even if they do realize the full potential of the internet, there are risks that they might fall into scams or believe the claims of unscrupulous individuals. To this end, the Get Paid to Draw tries to provide valuable resources that will prevent their subscribers from falling prey into unsavory situations. Among the things you can expect from the product include:

  • Video tutorial for artists who are just starting in the business
  • Tips in submitting your work into profitable websites
  • Guide to generating residual income from your submissions
  • A directory list that will help you get hired
  • Valuable tips on how you can land high-paying jobs in the industry
  • Learn to design for textile and advertising companies
  • Become a professional artist
  • Know how to make serious income within 30 days using your drawings and photos
  • Modern art techniques
  • Case studies and examples of artwork that had been sold successfully on eBay
  • Realize the potential of designing logos
  • Design artwork wholesale and get paid with one huge check
  • Learn how it is possible to generate $2000 per week by simply generating patterns

It has been said that a “picture is worth a thousand words”. In the case of a great piece of art, this saying is true. Designing beautiful and useful craft can be a rewarding money-making endeavor. Get Paid to Draw will not only teach you how to improve your craft, you will also learn how you can maximize your profits from it.

Note:  If you're on IM Report Card because you're looking for a way to make money online, then you should check out our top recommendation.  It's the best method we've found that anyone can use to earn income online.  Click here to learn more!

Get Paid to Draw Reputation

The Get Paid to Draw sales page is actually full of hype. On its introductory paragraph was a story of how a “lazy” college student generated $874,790 from drawings. If this suspicious story is true, even the most talented artist will be hard-pressed to replicate this within a short amount of time. Despite the claims provided in the sales page, there is a disclaimer at the bottom that says “all representation of earnings shown on GetPaidToDraw.com are for example purposes only.”

Worst Ever!

My aunt is a photographer. She stumbled on this site a few months back. She asked me about it, if it was good. I looked at the layout, and I thought for a website that will teach you to make money from your art, why the website looks so crappy now. Well anyways she bought it.

The book just refers you to buy Photoshop, Paint Shop, etc. and how to use them. It just shows you some techniques which you can pretty much find in any Google Search Engine. So I thought what a waste of money.

Then it told me to look at the phonebook and find some people about your drawings and tell them you can create anything. My 14 year old son can do this. This was just common sense. I don't recommend this product to anyone!

Not as good as it sounds

I've been drawing for about three year now and been making money online for about two. These are two of my favorite hobbies to do. When I saw that I could combine the two, I had to join. Of course it ended up being a waste of time. I uploaded a bunch of pictures I have drawn which I think are really good. I draw a bunch of abstract pictures. After I found out you only get paid if people download them I was kinda bummed, but still did it anyway. I thought people would still like my abstract pictures for say wallpaper for their computer. I came to find out the chance of getting someone to download your picture is really slim. I didn't ever get anyone to download my picture and never made a cent in the four months since I joined the site. I still check back every once and awhile and nothing. I am not quite sure if this site is a scam of if they just need more people to join and get more popular.

Not for most artists

Okay. Get Paid To Draw seemed like it would be a great way to promote my artwork while earning a good amount of cash. Being a college student, I needed to make money somehow to keep up with ordinary costs.

When I first went to the website, I noticed the format immediately. I knew that this wouldn't be a website that I would just get paid from, but I would have to pay a fee as well. The website's format is straight up-and-down, a common web layout format for scams.

This website is not a true scam, however. It just really cleverly words things to make you believe that you will earn serious big bucks. In return for the fee you pay (which I guess varies, since it's different from when I bought it), you receive software to teach you how to market your drawings, different techniques and such. I guess the software is more helpful if you want to know how to draw and want to learn more about things like print design. However, this website and its claims lead you to believe that you can make big money fast on your art, which is not the case. I bought this believing that I would get my foot out the door faster.

Bottom-line: buy if you want a bunch of new software that will probably teach you some new techniques. You could probably apply them to everyday things. If you're looking to make huge money off of doodles and such... I would suggest not looking into it. There are better ways to have commissions via the internet.

The site name is misleading

The site name is misleading... they don't pay you to draw.

You draw for free if nobody downloads your work, basically.

The chances of your drawings getting downloaded are extremely slim

I draw very well, and not ONE of my drawings have been downloaded.

It just doesn't make sense. I think they just lure you in with the

sound of being paid to submit your drawings, get you to pay a fee

and THAT'S how they make their money. The buck stops there.

Spend your money on something else

My friend found this website and showed it to me. It sounded like something fun and promising, "Get paid to Draw". Because I am not a professional drawer I approached with some caution. Even after some negative reviews I still decided to try the offer, as I like doing drawing and painting. They claimed that you can earn so much you can buy a home and retire early. Little exaggerated? Probably, but that happens everywhere.

I took the risk and paid them the entry fee. I submitted several artworks that were just amazing in my opinion. At least I could make some pocket money... but after a month only one picture was downloaded. I tried my best and still couldn't make a buck or two. Very disappointing because I spent my money on the site and profited almost nothing. It was a huge mistake.

Oh, if you really want to earn from your drawings, sell them in eBay or something. That's the only easy way. Why didn't I realize that earlier?

Stay away from this one

I really think this site is a waste of time. Not only for the reason that none of my art work was getting downloaded from people, but also for the start-off fee they charge which is $35 dollars. You can spend months in this site and you will never get that money back, nor start making any profits at all. Another thing that really bothered me was that my emails never got a reply. I tried several times writing to them and no one ever replied. For me any site that would have such a behavior is a total scam. It took my money and never even offered me any support of any kind. I would really advise everyone to stay away from this one.

Having success with this program

I signed up with GetPaidToDraw a while back and am now starting to see some profits from it. When I first paid my $34.95 for the product, I watched the videos. The videos were very helpful and gave me the information I needed to make this work. I started submitting my artwork and at first I didn't get any bites. I then submitted artwork of dragons that I have done and that is where I'm making my profit. I have had a significant number of downloads for my dragon artwork which is how I'm succeeding at this. I think it takes several attempts and different areas of artwork to make this work. I am happy with the product and have made more than the cost of the program. This program does work, but I can't see it making the amount of money claimed on the website. You will make a profit if you give it time.

It is pretty lame. Waste of time

I love drawing and I thought, "Why not make money by having people download my drawings?" I put a lot of work into them and only got three downloads within a time frame of two months. I had submitted ten drawings which was a waste of time of drawing and submitting! I really thought that I would make money with this. I contacted support a couple of times just to ask for suggestions of what people would like. I never got a reply back. Not once. I don't understand why they wouldn't, but it seems like a scam to me. They want you to pay a start up fee but they don't care if you make money or not.

Draw forever, get paid never

This site is a great idea, however one can draw and work quite hard for months and never have anyone download their drawings. Possibly I am just not a very talented artist, but it seems to be the general feedback among people here that it is difficult to get people to download your pictures. I personally spent several months uploading a few drawings every few weeks, and some which I had spent a lot of time on which to this day have not been downloaded. If anyone can make money on this site, power to them, however I have had no luck. I seldom even log on anymore.

Give it a try

I have tried this site, and I think it is a great way of using the internet to help the art industry. If you have a bit of talent and are having trouble finding a way to make money out of it, this is definitely for you, as there is such a wide range of different people with different tastes involved. I definitely support this idea.

Not Worth the Time

I joined this site because I enjoy drawing and have been told that my drawings are pretty good. I thought that this would be a way to get my work out there and make a little money at the same time. Unfortunately, after 3 months, I have made nothing here.

The site boasts big profits in little time, but does not deliver. I would steer clear of this site if I were you.

Really, really, really slow!

I joined this website quite recently hoping to have a little more fun while making money. Of course my fun side was impressed, and I did not even had to be an artist to draw, but the making money side of me was not impressed. It was slow, and I did not make much.

Another thing that disappointed me was the $34.95 "one time" fee. I knew this was a little trick they had to get people to buy their product now, but I thought maybe it was decent considering it's price.

Overall, I do not really advise other people to try this out, you will not make much, and if you do, it is really slow and not a lot. But if you are a really dedicated person, and love to draw, go ahead and try it out, but you have been warned!

Close to no payout

After a week or so of drawing a variety of things, I just gave up. No one seemed to want to download anything I put out. Sure I had gotten a few bites, but nothing worthwhile.

However, if you enjoy drawing, you should try this site for a while.

Wasted Time and Effort for No Profit

I was originally excited about this site because I do love to draw and do a lot of artistic type things. So I expected that this would be a great way to earn some money off of my work, and do something that I really enjoyed at the same time. Well, after getting signed-up, and wasting a lot of time uploading my work and going through the process, I was sadly disappointed when hardly any money was coming my way. Not only were there hardly any bids or offers for my pieces, but anything that I did end up making money off of was much less than I feel I could have made elsewhere if I simply sold my art at a booth at a fair or craft convention! I just feel like not only is this site a waste of time, but full of lies as far as making a ton of money.

Almost scams

This site just wasting my time. I took a lot of time joined and have uploaded my drawings and just got nothing. I have sent many emails asking this site statistics to the admin, but he didn't reply me anything. So I can only say that this site is almost a scam.

Chock-full of Hype, but still

I didn't like how the product was presented, personally. As with most other products or services, if it promises to give me hundreds of thousands of dollars in earnings in a short period of time, then a little red flag is already waving in front of my eyes. After overcoming the initial doubt with me and my husband's desire to earn through his skill in drawing, we took a leap of faith and decided to try it out.

If it seems too good to be true, then maybe it is. I think it applies to this product. But although it did not deliver as LARGE an income as promised, it's still a pretty good source of income for us. And maybe with more time invested on producing artworks and a better grasp of Illustrator and Photoshop, I see this site as potentially being able to provide a great future for us. Me and my husband were also impressed with the amount of resources available and the bonuses that came with the purchase, so all in all, it's a pretty good investment to make if you are serious on monetizing your artistic skills.

Get paid to draw===>SENSELESS

This site never worked for me and I don't think it will ever work for anyone. The concept of this website is to get paid for your drawings. After registering, I uploaded a few of my drawings hoping to earn a few extra bucks. But the response was poor - actually I got no response at all. Added to that I kept getting emails to sign up for a special offer. They were very annoying. It's a waste of time to even look at this website. Just ignore this website folks. That's all what I can say.

Don't get paid much

I joined this site and nobody seems to be downloading my drawings and photos. I don't know how people can make up to 900 dollars per picture. This site seems to be a big scam for me and I didn't like this site. I don't think people make money with this site like what they said on the homepage. Try this site if you like drawing and are pretty good at it because you might make profit but probably not a lot. I did not have any success with this site.

Get Paid to Draw

I rather enjoyed this site. It doesn't pay all that much, but it is better than nothing. This site has also helped me improve my drawing abilities. I enjoy this site. It is fun, easy to use, it helps people to see my art, and you get paid to do it!

Make money just by surfing the web with Swagbucks! It is fun and really easy to use. Swagbucks is a search engine, which gets it's results from Google and Yahoo. They pay you points whenever you search with them and these points can be redeemed for gift cards and other prizes!

 
 
 
All lies and scams

It's such a shame that this site doesn't deliver all it claims. The blatant lies on the home page is a very painful shot in the foot for the site creators who would have been better telling the truth and simply explaining that profits could be being lost, rather than trying to use far fetched, and unbelievable examples. I was so unimpressed with that straight away!

I have created a few pieces of artwork, however, and know that I could be profiting so much more from my work, and a site that actually offered the features within this site would appeal to me greatly. I decided to sign up anyway. After paying the $35 one off fee, I am very disappointed. I have not received any wonderful information, and have not sold a single piece. I have sent many complaint messages but have not received feedback of any kind. I would say that you should stay away from this site and look elsewhere.
