Are you a struggling painter, working night and day to build your portfolio and expose your labors of love to the world at large? If so, you might want to look into dropping by Dreamaid.com and auctioning your artwork there. Listing a product is totally free, although if it sells the website will take 10% of your earnings as payment.

Dreamaid isn't just about helping struggling artists sell their work. They also run a charity called, appropriately enough, the Dreamaid Charity. It offers support for poor local artists by offering them jobs, Internet access, cameras, and exposure. When you list a product on Dreamaid you can choose what percentage of your sale will be donated to the charity. Customers browsing the site can see how much of their purchase will help the charity, which could motivate them to buy.

I think Dreamaid's goals are laudable, but it remains to be seen whether or not their business model will end up being financially feasible. They're going to need to attract a much wider audience than just struggling artists in order to succeed, so how well they do will depend primarily on advertising. If you plan on listing an item on Dreamaid or end up purchasing something from them, please drop us a comment or an email and let i4u News know what you think.
