Artificial intelligence is currently a hot cake, no doubt. Just take a look at how the search term ‘artificial Intelligence’ has been trending on Google Trends over the past 5 years.

Artificial Intelligence on Google Trends

Mind blowing, right?

Yes it is. And currently over 86 million people have affirm interest in ‘artificial intelligence’ on Facebook.


With the buzz Artificial Intelligence is already making, when I listen to experts in artificial intelligence industry insinuating that AI is just getting started, I can’t help but wonder what it would be like when General Artificial Intelligence finally arrives.


The real deal here is that with the amount of people interested in or becoming dependent on artificial intelligence comes opportunities to make a lot of money off the AI trend.

Take a look at how big tech companies are racing to acquire AI start-ups and you won’t need any more convincing to know that AI is the next big thing.

The amazing thing is that you don’t need to have millions of dollars in your bank (in some cases) to jump on the AI bandwagon and start making money with it.



Now sit tight because in this article I’m going to share with you seven (7) ways you can make money with artificial intelligence.

1- Build an Artificial Intelligent Application (AI Program)

Artificial intelligence applications (valuable AI Apps) are highly in demand. If you can build one (or more) and market it effectively, you most definitely will be making a lot of money from it.

Now, this may shock you:
You don’t need skill in AI programming to build an AI application whether for Android, IOS or PC.

Have you ever had of a guy called Neil Patel?

Well in case you haven’t, he is a big name in the SEO industry and today, he’s making a lot of money by building SEO applications, marketing them and offering access to them at certian prices without having to build those applications himself.

In most cases, he pays programmers to build the applications for him, markets them and boom, he’s making money for them. In other instance, like in that of UberSuggest (one of my favorite free tool), he acquires the application straight off the market.


You too can do the same, you can hire AI programmers to build an AI application for you, you pay them, market it effectively and the next thing you know, you’re making money already. Alternatively you can also acquire AI applications off the market.


Now, if you don’t have the money to pay programmers to build you an AI application or acquire one, then you will need to be skilled in AI programming that way you can build your own AI applications without having to pay for it.

Ways to make with AI Applications

Through Advertisement

You can make money from your applications through Advertisement and that’s mostly if your AI applications are available for free. Advertisers are paying millions of dollars to advertise on applications.




Sell Access to the Applications

You can decide to make your AI application(s) available for a certain price of your choosing, that way people will pay you to use your applications and you could also make it available for free while making users pay for certain features.

Sell it

Do I seriously mean you should sell your AI application?


You could develop an AI application get a lot of people to be using it and sell it to the highest bidder (or to your preferred bidder).

WhatsApp Founders made a whopping $16 billions dollars from selling WhatsApp to Facebook.

That’s a lot of money. You may not necessarily sell your Apps for billions, that notwithstanding, there’s a lot of made from selling Apps.

2- Start a blog about artificial intelligence

Blogging is old (being around for long) no doubt, but more people are making money blogging this year than were last year.

According to a survey of 1,500 ProBlogger readers who said they’re trying to make money by blogging, found that 9% make between $1,000 and $10,000 a month and 4% make over $10,000 a month. But the vast majority makes less than $3.50 per day. (Most of these were blogs less than two years old).

Over $10,000 a month that’s a lot made by the hard and smart working 4% of bloggers. While 9% a least lay down with $1,000 – $10,000 per month.

When you consider the fact that the median household income in the United States is $56,516, according to 2015 data from the U.S. Census, then it’s only common sense to say ‘there is lots of money made blogging’.

A blog about artificial intelligence could see you make a lot of money every month. Plus your can leverage AI Writers like Chat GPT to make content production fast and super simple.

With a lot of people interested in Artificial intelligence, you do be missing out by not starting a blog on Artificial Intelligence.

Ways to make money blogging about artificial intelligence

You can make money blogging from so many ways, some of which are through; ads, selling online courses, affiliate marketing, ebooks sale, sponsored post, and running a paid membership site among others.

3- Invest in Artificial Intelligence (Buy AI Stocks)

Imagine if you had invested in amazon’s IPO in May 1997, you do be making swimming in a lot of money now.

According to CNBC calculations, if you had invested $1,000 in Amazon’s IPO in May 1997, your investments would have been $1,362,000 as of September 4th 2018.

This means if you had invested $10,000 your return would have been $13,620,000

$100,000 your return would have been $136,200,000

$1,000,000 your return would have made you a billionaire because your return would have been $1,362,000,000 ($1.3 billion), crazy money.

Again, that’s mind-blowing!

The e-commerce business was just getting started then in 1997, the stock price worth less but the e-commerce business was trending just like artificial intelligence is today.

The potential of the e-commerce business back then was as glaring as Artificial Intelligence today.

And to think of the fact that artificial intelligence has far more potential today than e-commerce in 1997, it would not be unwise to invest in Artificial Intelligence today, now that it’s stock prices worth less.
