Listen to me very closely because you have two choices when it comes to AI. You can either adopt it or you can get left behind. But here’s the problem with all the news coming out about AI: seemingly every new AI tools will be the next big thing that will take everyone to the next level, but that’s simply not true.
Here’s the reality of the situation: most of the AI tools that everyone swears by will not help you in any meaningful way. I mean, sure, they’re cool, they’re nice to have, but besides that, they’re not really gonna help you.
Now here’s what I mean. An AI tool should either make you more money or it should save you more time. AI tools should make your workflow seamless, not add complexity to them. So in this article, I’m going to give you the seven AI tools in order to do that.
Now the first AI tools that have the potential to make you lots of money and save you lots of time are 10 Webio and Durableco. Now back in the day, creating a website required a lot of skills and training. I mean, you need to be proficient in several coding languages and you also had to design everything. And then you needed to write each piece of code manually and only then would you be able to actually fill in a page with your copy.
I mean this entire process could take weeks, sometimes even months depending on the complexity of the website. It was a long arduous and most importantly expensive process. And in the late 90s, even the most basic website could cost upwards of twenty thousand dollars. Then came tools like WordPress and later Wix and Shopify, and these tools drastically brought costs down. And all of a sudden, most people could build at least a very basic website. But even since these came out in the 2000s, one problem has still remained: time.
How AI Tools Save You Time
No matter how you put it, building a good website, however simple, will still take a long time. I mean, sure, nowadays you don’t have to code everything yourself. You can kind of just put in whatever you want into a website builder, but even then, it still takes time.
It takes time to get the design right, it takes time to write the copy, it even takes time to learn how to use the website builders themselves. So much so that agencies and contractors will offer to do it for you. And let’s be honest, lots of the custom websites are actually just slightly improved versions of basic Wix templates.
So that’s really all to say that building websites isn’t easy and it isn’t quick. And that’s really where AI comes into the picture. With tools like 10 Web.io and Durableco, you can use AI to build your entire website for you.
What The AI Tools Does
AI will design it, build the website, write copy, and even source and insert the imagery. And in a matter of minutes, you can go from having no website to having a fully functioning and aesthetically pleasing website. All you need to do is give AI some basic information and that’s it. A few minutes answering prompts, if that, and you’ll also be able to take advantage of features like built-in SEO and AI recreation.
AI recreation allows you to feed the AI websites you like, and it can recreate similar websites for you.
Now of course once made, you can edit whatever you want and even have the tool regenerate the site until it’s to your perfection and your liking.
Making Money With AI Tools
So you can either use these AI tools in your own business or you can even start businesses around them. You see, tons of people are paying freelancers a few hundred dollars to make really basic websites. And with these tools, you can blow those freelancers out of the water in a matter of minutes and even command higher prices while doing so. These are perfect examples of how AI tools can both save time and make you money.
2. Opus Clip
Now over the years our attention span has gone in shorter and shorter. And creators have to grab attention faster and faster. And that eventually led to our current reality where short-form content is king.
Now there’s multiple ways to go about short-form, and I would know because people or businesses with full-time editors, strictly doing short-form content will be super expensive to have, which is simply not an option for most people. And that’s where a tool like Opus Clip becomes extremely useful.
You see, Opus Clip is able to take any long-form video and with one click turn your long-form content into short-form content. Now the best part about this tool is that the AI is able to find the best hooks in the video and piece them together with the relevant highlights to pretty much cut out all of the boring stuff. And that means that your chances of virality are much, much higher.
The AI copilot also allows you to clip parts of a video based on keywords. Now this is easily one of the highest ROI tools on this list, especially considering how prevalent short-form content is.
Making Money With Opus Clip
And you know as well as I do, short-form is not going anywhere. Tools like Opus Clip can not only save you time in editing and money in hiring, but you can also build a business around it. Of course, by now the industry is no stranger to short-form agencies, but just because there are plenty of them doesn’t mean that they no longer work. That means that tools like Opus can actually make you tons and tons of money and attract millions and millions of eyeballs.
3. ChatGPT Writer
Now the next AI tool helps you save time and actually simplifies your workflow using ChatGPT Writer. Chat GPT Writer is so simple yet such a no-brainer, and here’s why: you’ll remember that when Chat GPT first became the talk of the town, one of the prime use cases for AI was to do simple writing tasks.
But there’s one slight problem. By the time that you get an email open, chatGPT copy and paste the email, write the prompt to read and reply to the email, once you set up all the fundamentals, by that time frame it probably would have been quicker to just reply to the email yourself. And that’s where Chat GPT Writer comes in.
It’s a simple chat GPT based Chrome extension that alleviates all of that friction with using AI to reply to emails. It’s incredibly simple yet very effective in saving time in the long run.
Now next, I want to talk about Tidio. Tidio’s AI, Lyro, has the power to either assist or entirely replace your support team, and doing all that whilst boosting sales on your website. And obviously, this means that you either save money by hiring fewer staff or make more money by providing a better customer experience. And both of those lead to the same outcome, which is more net income in your pocket.
Now, Tidio AI is essentially an AI-powered chatbot that can do two things. It either replaces lengthy frequently asked questions and answers customers’ questions in a matter of seconds. So, that means that you can easily increase your site’s conversion rates by making the customer journey so much more seamless.
The reason is that, instead of clogging the website with tons of frequently asked questions and still having loads of questions unanswered, you can now feed all of that information into AI, which can then answer all of your customers’ queries.
What’s More With This AI Tool
The AI can also answer more advanced queries like order fulfillment or restocks by tapping into the database.
Now, the second thing the AI allows is for human customer support teams to work faster and better. You see, here’s the thing: Tidio is a text-based AI, which means it can take your support agents’ quick and rough replies and turn them into full sentences that are on par with your company’s branding. But if your customer asks a question that’s beyond the scope of the AI’s knowledge base, then it will automatically refer them to a human agent.
Now, here’s the interesting part. Lyro can answer 70% of your customers’ questions. That means that your support system can service more people in less time. And as I said, the result is happier customers and ultimately more sales.
So the next AI tool will be useful for just about anyone and have the potential to save tons of time. Have you ever read through a seemingly endless contract or some other lengthy document? Now maybe you have to do some reading for a class or maybe you need to read some other brief or report for work. Well, if you’ve ever been in a situation where you have to read a long document, then DocuAsk can save you a ton of time.
Because with DocuAsk, you no longer need to read those long arduous documents. You see, there are plenty of tools that summarize text. ChatGPT can even do that. But the issue with the summaries is that they’re only that, summaries. That means that you will inevitably miss important fine details.
But if you know what to look for, well then you can use DocuAsk. Because DocuAsk takes any document and analyzes it so you can simply ask questions about it in a chat box. Here’s the thing,. extracting information from documents literally could not be easier. So you no longer need to spend hours and hours scouring through documents. You can simply use AI.
6. Microsoft Co-Pilot
The next AI is one that has been amazing, but it may just be the most useful AI on this list. And that’s Microsoft’s co-pilot. Co-pilot directly complements Microsoft’s entire suite of products. That means it’s able to do everything from analyzing Excel spreadsheets to making full-blown PowerPoints. I mean, co-pilot can even transcribe notes during a Microsoft Teams meeting and provide you with a summary of the key points and action items, and even execute on the actions itself.
How It Works
So let’s say one of those action items was to make a presentation. Co-pilot is able to create a tailor-made presentation to your desired branding guidelines. I mean, we’ve all made a PowerPoint presentation before.
That alone could literally save you hours. Co-pilot also knows your calendar and therefore can prepare you for upcoming meetings. It can even generate reports and other Word documents based on previous work. And of course, it can also reply to all of your emails for you.
Co-pilot is one of the best examples of AI making your workflow more seamless and more efficient. It’s an AI tool that anyone can take advantage of regardless of their occupation. And especially if you ever use one of Microsoft’s products, well then co-pilot will be useful to you. Whether you need to make a pitch deck for your clients or analyze last quarter’s profitability, co-pilot can help.
7. Adobe Firefly
The last tool I want to talk about is Adobe Firefly. Because Adobe Firefly is one of the craziest AI tools yet. You see, most of the other tools on this list simply save you time or money by doing tasks for you. For example, 10 Web and Durable make websites for you, Tidio answers your customers’ questions. And they basically give you leverage.
Leverage is really what makes AI so powerful to begin with. You see, prior to AI, you’d have to spend hours on a task or spend money to hire someone to spend hours on that exact task. Now, well, now you essentially have an employee for a fraction of the cost.
But Adobe Firefly doesn’t fall under that same umbrella. You see, Adobe Firefly actually allows you to do things that otherwise would never have been possible. And in the process of that, this AI is incredibly valuable. Not only can it make your work easier, but you can also make it a hundred times better, which of course will make you more money. So let me explain how it works.
How Adobe Firefly Works
Firefly is a generative AI-powered content creation tool. That means it can simply create things. So let’s look at three examples and how it can help you.
Firefly can create realistic images from detailed text, and this is incredibly useful if you need any sort of product photography or any other scenario where you need to depict something. Now, normally you need a whole team of graphic designers and artists, whereas now you can simply ask the AI to do it for you. And that means you’re able to elevate your work drastically without elevating your costs.
The second thing is Firefly has something called generative fill. And that means that it can either draw in or erase objects in a photo. So if you want to wear a different outfit in a certain photo, this AI can do that for you. It can do things that would otherwise be impossible or would have taken a Photoshop expert to do. Even then, Firefly does it in a way that looks completely natural. It can also turn your sketches into photorealistic images and so much more.
So if you work with any sort of content creation, Firefly will be a must-have tool, both for easy fixes and for exploring completely new ideas. And soon, Firefly will even be able to generate images from 3D elements.
Now here’s the bottom line, this AI revolution we’re in, is no different from any other technological revolution. And as with any boom, there will be an inevitable bust. The key here is to be able to discern what’s to stay and what isn’t, and then to capitalize on the trends that are here to stay.
And now that you have these seven tools to help you make money and save time, all you need to do is get to work. Peace and Happy Hustling!!
