Graphic Designing Software – How to Make Money with CorelDraw

Graphic Designing SoftwareAre you looking for a way to make money? With a CorelDraw graphic designing software program, you can venture into many businesses where graphic designing is needed. Graphic designing offers several opportunities for you to make money. I have personally fallen in love with CorelDraw. And I will tell you why. But there are other good graphic designing software programs available on the market.

“I am not a computer wizard. I’m not a CorelDraw wizard. I have never done fine art. How can I venture into a graphic designing business?” So many people have that mindset. I was also like that. But I want to assure you that with CorelDraw graphic designing software, you can learn to design. You neither need to be an artist nor a computer wizard. All you need is the desire to do it. Once you have that burning desire, with a computer and an excellent graphic designing software program, you have the best ingredients of your own designing business.

I was so green in this area because I thought graphic designing was for artists. At school, I didn’t do fine art because I hated it. I thought it was for students with small brains. Sometime in 2011, when I was looking for a way to earn extra income, I discovered graphic designing. I purchased CorelDraw graphics designing software and started using it in my free time. Through practice and persistence, I became somehow confident. Though I am not yet an expert in using it, I earn a living through it. I even left formal employment, and I’m now in business. So you, too, can learn.

But if you happen to be a graphic artist with some knowledge of using this fantastic CorelDraw graphic designing software, you can easily apply your knowledge to your endeavours. All that you need is to acquire the necessary equipment for processing your graphics into marketable products and services.

Graphic designing is a business you can start part-time to supplement your current income. Then you can grow it to full time if you would like. It’s a business you can operate from your home or a storefront to produce products with a broad appeal. Secondly, it’s a business where creativity is essential. You imagine, design and create using proper equipment and graphic designing software like CorelDraw.

Why CorelDraw graphic designing software?

Graphic Designing SoftwareIn the beginning, I mentioned that there are several designing software programs. But I mainly fell in love with CorelDraw. It’s a graphic designing program, which I recommend to anyone who wants to start a designing business of any kind. Why? Here are my reasons:

1. CorelDraw graphic designing software is a beautiful blend of both business application and mechanical design. It’s well suited for businesses that need illustration capabilities with dimensional accuracy.

2. It’s a comprehensive graphic designing software program. It enhances your creativity. It includes all the must-have tools for illustration, layout, photo editing, web graphics and website creation.

3. It’s easy to learn. It has fully built-in help, training videos, templates and thousands of free images that open your world of new design possibilities. It’s why I say you can start a graphic designing business even if you are not a computer wizard or artist.

4. It’s easy to use. It helps you work in style by getting started with the quick start option. As you create your designs, you can handle thousands of high-quality images, fonts, templates, clipart and fills to produce beautiful designs for printing or your website.

5. Ability to work faster and efficiently. It gives you the option to choose your workspace based on your skill level. Everything gets tailored to your needs.

6. It’s versatile. This graphic designing software program works well with any equipment you purchase to do business. You connect your computer to the machine to produce what you want.

7. It enables you to compete favourably on the market. People will always admire your quality designs. As a result, more and more customers will come your way.

Which version of CorelDraw should you use?

Coreldraw Graphic Design SoftwareAny version will work for you, but new releases are much better. I recommend you buy the latest version. It has enhanced features and functionalities.

What I have discovered is that most people in Uganda are using old versions. They miss out on what newer versions offer. The reason why they cannot upgrade to newer versions is that they use pirated CorelDraw software programs.

What I strongly advise you is that when you are buying CorelDraw, buy it from genuine sellers who will provide you with a license. I purchased my software several years ago when it was still Suite X5 at $560. I have to update it each time a newer version gets released on the market, which is usually less than half the price for a full version. It is more comfortable and cost-effective to update to a newer version if you have a license.


If you are looking for a business to start, think about learning graphic designing. It offers excellent business opportunities. As homework, look at the graphics products/services around you, at your work, in your city, in people’s homes and offices or anywhere you go. You will realise that designing is a massive industry. You can easily make money from all what you see. As you can see, CorelDraw graphic designing software and your computer can be the start of something very profitable. Just have the right equipment to do it.
