Welcome to my Get Paid to Draw review. I think this is a complete waste of your time, and I’m going to explain why…
Product Name: Get Paid to Draw
Overall Ranking: Bad
Price: $74 (or $37 with discount)
Don’t be fooled by videos like this:
…because making money from drawings is not quite as easy as they claim.
What their Website Claims
When you go to their website, there is not much on there, but you will be presented with the following dramatic headline:
There is a brief explanation of what you would be doing to earn money. Basically, they are saying that you can take photos or make drawings, upload them, and earn money. Well, essentially this is nothing new as image stock libraries have been around for years, where photographers can submit their images and earn money when people buy them. So fundamentally there is nothing particularly unrealistic about that.
However, this website does make it sound super simple like it’s an easy 1-2-3 process: create, upload, earn. Is it really that easy to earn “£1500 per month”? And what this “weird trick” part?
What lurks behind that luring sign-up box? What tempting, lucrative secrets are they hiding behind there? And is it really going to be as easy to earn all that money as that headline claims?
Once you give them your email address, there’s a lot more information available. But first, another dramatic headline:
Okay, so I read all the text on that 2nd page, and here’s what I found out…
Actually, there’s not a huge amount of text on that page either, not when compared to many other sales pages out there. There are some more eye-catching headlines and images, though, for example, this one showing how much some simple drawings have earned him:
People do pay money for images, for use in publications and on websites. Free images can be difficult to find, so sometimes people will pay for them. I’m not disputing this at all. I’m just wondering whether it’s as easy to earn lots of money as they are making it sound.
How to Tell if Something is a Scam
I previously wrote an article about how to spot scams. You see, once you know what to look for, it becomes quite easy to spot the fake “make money online” products. There are certain signs to look out for which can indicate that it is a scam, and there are also signs that can indicate that it might be genuine.
So, follow along with me while I take a critical look at Get Paid to Draw…
What Factors Would Indicate that it is Genuine?
- Does it seem realistic? – I’m in two minds about whether it seems realistic. It’s totally realistic to sell images for money, but is it realistic to easily earn that much? I’m not sure.
- Are they upfront about the effort involved? – Yes and no. They make it clear that you will actually have to draw the drawings and/or take the photos. But are they giving a realistic idea of just how much effort it will take to achieve the “£1500 per month” that they mention on the first page? Possibly not. Also, the headline on the first page refers to a “lazy college student” being able to make a lot of money.
- Do they sound genuine? – Well, there is no video of a person talking, which is a huge minus as far as I’m concerned. If they are genuine, I want to see them talking about it for real.
- Can you take a look inside? – I was genuinely disappointed that giving them my email address didn’t give me the opportunity to take a look inside. If the system they use is so good, why not let us take a look at it?
- Is there a free trial? – No. There is an 8 week “no questions asked” money back guarantee period, but that’s not the same as actually being able to sign up without handing over your credit card.
Genuineness score: 17%
What Factors Would Indicate that it is a Scam?
- Does it sound too good to be true? – Again, I’m in two minds here. On the one hand, the amount they say you could earn does seem a bit unrealistic. However, selling images for money is totally realistic.
- Do they promise you’ll get rich quickly? – While they don’t actually say you’ll get rich overnight, they do use dramatic headlines such as “a literal gold mine”. Not only is that an incorrect usage of the word “literal” (how could it ACTUALLY be a gold mine?), it’s implying that this will get you rich. They also use the worlds “almost instantly the money started pouring in”. So really, the language they are using is implying you will get rich quickly.
- Are they secretive about how they make their money? – Yes and no. They are up front that it involves selling your images, but less transparent about exactly how you manage to make so much money from them.
- Do they claim it is a “never seen before” method? – Yes, because they never explain what the “weird trick” is. They’re saying that somehow they have discovered a unique method for selling your images that will earn you loads of money.
- Do they claim it requires no work? – whilst they are clear that you do actually need to take the photos and draw the images, the language of their sales page implies that it is all so easy and that a “lazy college student” can earn lots of money. So sort of yes and no really.
Fakeness score: 70%
What are other people saying?
Is Get Paid to Draw a Scam?
So as you can see, I have taken a look at the factors that can indicate that it might be genuine, as well as the factors that could indicate that it is a scam. Then I assigned a score to each so I could get an idea of how many positive and negative signs there are. Then we combined the two scores, then took into account what other people are saying, to create an overall chance of it being a scam:
64% chance of being a scam
Is There an Alternative?
Instead of chasing after “shiny objects” like this that promise you will make money quickly and easily but rarely live up to that promise, why don’t you build a great website that earns you money? If you are new to making money online, I can guide you through the process. CLICK HERE to get started
