Today I am going to review GetPaidTakingPictures.com. What is Get Paid Taking Pictures and is it really working? I have actually tried this “program” because I was into selling my photos to so called microstock sites, and I thought that it could be a good investment to pay a small amount of money to get the “secrets” on how and on what to take photos on, to achive maximum success. So how did it work out for me with this “program” and did I get any “secrets” on the subject?
Program: Get Paid Taking Pictures
Owner: Michael Davis
Price: $37 or $77 (if you want the upgrade (or upsell) once you are inside of the members area)
Who is it for: People who wants to make a living from selling their photos online.
What is GetPaidTakingPictures.com all about?
The “voice” in the Get Paid Taking Pictures promo video claims he got the knowledge or “secrets” (like he say in his own words), on how you can earn A LOT of cash just by taking pictures and upload them online. He tells us the story about how he struggled with a Walmart 9-5 job before he found this opportunity.
He basically found out about the microstock industry you can say. Anyway he continues talking about how he made about $250 the first day he tried this. So he continued doing this and he made more and more money for every day. Then he tells us he quit the Walmart job and live a life where he spend only 20minutes every day to upload pictures. He achived all this without having no experience at all from photography. In the promo video there is also a lot of testimonials (probably fake) from people who have tried this Get Paid Taking Pictures system. Click here if you want to see this video.
Now he want to share the secrets he got so you also can make this amounts of money he does ($500+ per day). All you have to do is pay $37 and you will get access to the “secrets”
Why You Should/Should Not Try This
When I found this I was thinking to myself what a bunch of bullshit, because I knew pretty much about this microstock industry already. I knew that it takes a hell of a lot more time than 20minutes a day to upload photos to microstock sites. I also knew that he was not telling the truth when he said he made over $200 the first day he tried this. I knew this because I had studied the professionals in the business for several months before I found this Get Paid Taking Pictures “opportunity”
Anyway I was thinking to myself when I tried this, ok it is only $37 and I felt had the money and I was already uploading pictures to so called microstock sites so I felt, ok it is an investment, maybe I learn something new?
So I bought into the members area and this is what I got: I got the exact same info I already knew!! :o) The only thing I got that I did not already know of was some smartphone apps I did not know about but the rest was only basic stuff that I had learned by myself by surfing the web on the subject for a couple of months.
So my advice would be if you are a completely begginer to this and feel that you got more time than money. DO NOT try this Get Paid Taking Pictures System. But if you feel you got more money than time. Go ahead! You will save about one or two months of reasearch to get the exakt same knowledge that is presented to you inside the members are.
Final words and Verdict
Overall Rating: 2/10
Ok the info you get when you buy this is good info but I consider this to be a scam anyway because in the promo “the voice” make it sound like you will get “secrets” that guarantee you to make A LOT of money immediately, and that is so far from the truth it can be.
You will not make the amounts of money “the voice” in the promo video tells you, atleast not the first couple of years uploading pictures. This kind of business takes A LOT of time to even make “gasoline money” and it will require you to have an online portfolio with atleast 10,000 pictures (probably more) to make a full time living from this.
I think I have covered pretty much what I wanted to say here and hopefully I have made my point clear.
If you already are into the microstock business DO NOT try this. If you are a begginer, only try it if you feel you are willing to spend the amount of money it costs ($37) to save about a month of time in (FREE) reasearch to learn the exakt same things.
One more thing: Whatever road you choose to make a full time living online (if that is your goal) will take time and work. There is no short cuts to make money onlline, atleast not if you want to make any substantial amounts of money. If you are a totally begginer to this you have to learn how to do this of course. Uploading photos is probably one of the easiest ways for a “begginer” online to go, but it is far from the quickest way to make a lot of money. So if you have a passion for taking photos I would say GO FOR IT! But if you are more intrested in “making the money” there are better (and faster) ways. Even if you have a passion for taking photos there is faster ways to go… See the links below to understand what I talk abou here.
I hope this get paid taking pictures review was helpful, and now hopefully you know what it is and if it is something for you. If you also have tried it or have any questions please leave a comment below!
