Still feeling overwhelmed when it comes to AI? That’s understandable: this world is new for everyone. But, on the upside, new worlds mean new opportunities, and there is a plethora of options that you can take advantage of at this point in time. Even with my limited knowledge, I’ve already made money with AI, less than two months into learning about these tools. As soon as I saw my first sale, I knew I needed to write this post and share this information with you all. Here’s a quick guide to start making money quickly with AI:
- Decide what you want to create. At this early part of the AI revolution, there are many resources and countless options for anyone that’s interested in creating with AI. Future Tools has a list of all of the AI-powered platforms that offer you options for creating new or upgraded income streams. For me, it was more interesting to work with images, which is why I dove into learning how to do AI-generated art. However, it’s possible to create videos, music, website copy, and so much more using AI. If you need a simple list of AI business ideas that have already been tested, check out this Side Hustle Nation’s blog post, where Matt Wolfe (one of my favorite AI gurus) discusses the business options available using AI.
- Watch YouTube videos to teach you the skills needed to get your business running. My favorite YouTubers that are discussing AI right now are Matt Wolfe, The AI Advantage, Goda Go, and Maximize. Learning about prompt engineering, large language models and natural language processing, and stable diffusion are great starting points, and, fortunately, you don’t have to be an expert at any of these in order to earn money with these tools. Carve out a bit of time each day to learn something about this new, exciting world, and allow these YouTube teachers to help you.
- Start experimenting with what you learn. Work with what you know and see what gives you the best results (pro tip: get very comfortable with ChatGPT: you can use it to create a business strategy that can improve the likelihood of success). Launch and have fun!
If you’ve had a chance to start using AI tools, please let me know. I’d love to hear what you’ve learned so far!
