5 Ways I Use ChatGPT to Make Money and Complete Time-Consuming Tasks

For the past seven years, I have been a solopreneur and content creator who is constantly looking for new ways to bring in money, from sideline to passive income currents. But when I became a mother for the first time in March, I struggled to keep my businesses running at full speed.

In the past, I hired virtual assistants and volunteers to help me build my website, manage social media, and create content, but I had to invest a lot of time in training them. With less time to do that now, I decided to turn to ChatGPT, an AI chatbot, to help me do my job.

I found that it not only saved me time and money, but helped me grow my business. Here are five ways I use ChatGPT to help increase my profits.

1. I researched topics and keywords suitable for SEO

For years, my maid-of-honor speech writing services ranked high when people searched for this type of help on Google. I charged $375 to write someone’s speech, and I was writing five to 10 speeches a month just from search traffic.

Over time, more competitors popped up, and my rankings on Google declined—and so did my bookings, which dropped to about three to five per month.

I thought about hiring an SEO expert to help me, but the ones I contacted charged around $2,000. Instead, I asked ChatGPT to help me optimize my website.

I first asked to use SEO keywords for a maid-of-honor speech writing service. I then used those words throughout my website landing page and blog posts.

I started getting traffic again, even as new competitors came up. A few months after making these changes, my bookings went back to around five to seven a month.

2. Follow me on ChatGPT for help on social media

I have previously hired freelance social media consultants for between $1,500 and $3,000 per month to help me strategize content and even post for me. It took me between 10 and 20 hours to get on board with them.

This time, I used ChatGPT to help me brainstorm content for static Instagram posts and TikTok videos. I asked the tool to share a script to use when someone wants to quit being married but feels awkward doing so. I used that script in a Reel generated over 6 million views, which is the highest number of views ever for my Instagram content.

I also used the tool to help me think of captions for my posts. I had a folder of photos I was waiting to post on Instagram and videos based on TikTok trends, but I didn’t have smart and catchy captions to use. Instead of spending the time to write it, I asked ChatGPT to create a caption for a video about being married saying: “Help me end this caption. ‘When you’ve been married six times this year and ____ already.’

It was generated “and your bank account is crying for a break.” I used that as a text overlay on a pre-recording video I created using TikTok audio trending, and it worked well.

I also asked ChatGPT to find the best hashtags to use for content related to being a married girl on TikTok. When I used hashtags to “catch the bouquet” and “be a constant bride,” I noticed more engagement on those videos than I had with others.

Although I have used other hashtag tools In the past, ChatGPT has cut my research time by 75% and provided me with more meaningful hashtags than the generic ones that other platforms can throw out.

3. I asked him to help me write pitch emails to brand sponsors and partners

One of my biggest sources of income is brand deals and partnerships. Companies will pay me several thousand dollars to advertise their products on my social media channels, within my newsletter, and on my podcast.

To close these deals, I have to spend at least 20 hours a month researching brands, sending pitch emails, and following up with them. I could pay an ad sales professional, but that would affect my profit, since most of them take a 15 to 20% commission fee.

Instead, I used ChatGPT to help me brainstorm lists of brands to contact. Since I started creating more content about being a mom, I asked the tool to share 25 new or trendy baby brands that work with influencers.

I took the list he gave me and decided to pitch to each of the brands. To find the influencer manager at these brands, I did a quick search on LinkedIn and entered the person’s name into free also find emaill. Normally, this whole process would take me an hour or two a week. When I used ChatGPT, it only took 15 minutes.

I then asked the tool to write a pitch email to a baby brand from the perspective of the influencer who wants to work with them. The tool drew up a template for me to use and even included a handful of content ideas that could impact the brand.

It took me an additional 15 minutes to generate these emails and send them to the 25 brands. Of the 25 I supported, five declined, 10 did not respond, and five asked for more information or to arrange a phone call.

So far, I’ve landed a contract with one of those brands, and they’ve provided me with over $500 worth of free merchandise in exchange for social media video and cite a newsletter.

4. I found a quick way to create strategies and do competitor analysis for new products

I am currently building a maid-of-honor speech writing tool using AI software. Before launching the tool, I wanted to do a thorough competitor analysis and put together a go-to-market strategy to share with my team.

In the past, it would take me over 20 hours to put these two strategies together. If I hired a business strategist to help, I would have paid close to $2,000.

Instead, I used ChatGPT to give me a competitor’s analysis of the maid-of-honor speechwriting landscape. I took that information and worked on elements of branding, pricing, and even differentiating our product from others.

I then asked the tool to create a go-to-market strategy for a maid-of-honor speech writing tool that uses AI. In seconds, he gave me the first draft of a strategy which I then refined with a few additional hours of work.

5. I asked for help with customer service responses and upselling

I sell a number of different products and services, from courses to personal wedding support. On any given day, my inbox has about 15 to 20 emails from customers with questions. Hiring a virtual assistant to monitor my inbox would cost about $250 to $500 per week.

To streamline the process, I analyzed the top 10 problems that people often encounter and asked ChatGPT to write response emails to these problems using comfortable and professional language.

Some people have difficulty accessing my online course after purchasing it. I asked ChatGPT to write an answer to this and he generated a comprehensive answer that walked people through the exact steps to access the course and what to do if they still have trouble afterwards. This would take me at least 30 minutes to write, and I wanted to make sure the tone I used wasn’t compromising.

When people finish a course, they often email me to find out how impactful it was. I asked ChatGPT to write an upsell email pitching my coaching services without using the salesperson’s voice. I sent what he drafted to five different customers last month and started talking to two who might be interested in hiring me for coaching, which would bring in close to $1,000.
