Chat GPT is changing the EVERYTHING

Hey there, creative souls and photography enthusiasts! In the latest episode of my podcast Tried & True With a Dash of Woo, we go deep into the world of AI, specifically ChatGPT. But it’s not just about what it is – it’s about how you, as creative entrepreneurs, can harness its power to elevate your business. Wondering how to make money with ChatGPT? Let’s explore some innovative ideas!

Customizing ChatGPT for Creative Brilliance

Imagine an AI assistant tailored just for your creative needs. That’s what the latest ChatGPT update offers now that we can create our own GPTs!  As long as you have Chat GPT plus ($20 a month), you are now able to create any kind of GPT for your own use or to sell.

From drafting unique photography concepts to brainstorming branding strategies, ChatGPT can now be customized to think like a creative entrepreneur. It’s like having a brainstorming buddy who’s available 24/7!  I’m personally using it as my own “team”: a business/finance manager, a creative director, a marketing and content strategist, etc.  I’m also creating a specific GPT for high school senior photographers that will help them with marketing to Gen Z clients.

I have SO many ideas actually for creating GPTs I feel like a kid on Christmas morning LOL!  This kind of stuff excites me and as a human design generator, I know that if I am this excited, it must mean that it is in alignment.

Why Embracing AI is a Game-Changer

In a field where time is as precious as your creative output, AI can be a lifesaver. ChatGPT helps streamline mundane tasks (think email responses or social media captions), freeing you up to focus on what you love – creating! Plus, it’s a fantastic tool for learning and expanding your skills, keeping you at the forefront of industry trends.

I think it would be super cool to create one for your clients too – I mention in this podcast episode how you can make it an extension of yourself and your branding so that potential clients can even interact with it online – and help you book them!

Generating Income with ChatGPT

Now, the juicy part – making money. ChatGPT can assist in developing online courses, eBooks, or engaging blog content, offering a passive income stream for photographers and creatives. It can even help script and outline YouTube tutorials or photography workshops, diversifying your revenue sources. You can easily start a side hustle or pivot completely into the world of AI if you learn.

Many companies are even hiring AI specialists at some pretty impressive starting salaries; I think we are on the precipice of something the likes of which we have not seen since the early days of the internet.  Technology is going to be moving SO fast – you really should make sure you’re at least knowledgeable about what it is and how you can leverage it.

I also go into a little it about Evoto AI in this episode, which is a game-changing software for professional photographers. If you aren’t using it yet, you NEED to give it a try – it will save you so much time!  I truly have not seen anything this innovative … EVER.  Use this code to get 30 free credits to see if you like it.

Learning and Growing with ChatGPT

Not a tech wizard? No worries! Learning about ChatGPT is a breeze. There are tons of resources available, from online tutorials to forums where you can share ideas with other creatives. It’s all about taking that first step and embracing the potential of AI in your creative journey.

I’m including in the show notes of this episode and HERE as well a Notion doc full of resources to get you started on this journey. If you don’t have a Notion account yet, click HERE to get a free one – then click HERE to grab that doc.

Takeaways about Chat GPT

Embracing AI, particularly ChatGPT, opens up a world of possibilities for creative entrepreneurs. It’s not just about working smarter; it’s about thriving in a digital age where creativity meets technology. So, why not give ChatGPT a try and see how it can help you boost your business and creativity? Remember, it’s not just about technology; it’s about the magic you create with it!

    Oh my, Renee – This is such good stuff. I just had my first experience building a GPT to support customer service during a launch while the typical players were on vacation. We were able to give it the information necessary to tell us if someone was a customer, which products they owned, which email lists they were part of and whether they were in our Facebook group or membership portal. Then we had the instructions loaded to tell staff how to process refunds, cancellations, etc. It was like MAGIC! Your idea of using it to build out a team is perfect for solopreneurs. I’m sharing this episode in all of my biz circles, so they can learn from you too.
