AI Guide for Solopreneurs: How to Use AI in Your Business8 minute read
As a one-person business owner - otherwise known as a solopreneur - you juggle multiple roles in your venture and wear many different hats.
You're the chief executive officer, the creative mind behind marketing, the salesperson, the accountant, and customer service!
You know very well that it can be quite overwhelming to handle all these responsibilities and stay ahead of your competitors.
That's where the power of artificial intelligence (AI) can make a significant difference.
AI can help you streamline the most tedious parts of your business, but also it can be a powerful ally in the most creative sides as well. Especially for solopreneurs who do not have a team of employees at their disposal, an extra hand can make all the difference.
So how can solopreneurs get started with AI?
If you are new in the artificial intelligence world and do not know where to start, and how to harness this new "trend", this article is for you.
Keep reading below to learn how solopreneurs can use AI in their businesses, and which AI-powered tools you can start leveraging today.
AI for Solopreneurs: How to Use AI in Your Online Business
AI is not only for big corporations: thanks to its accessibility, small business owners can now take advantage of this powerful tool as well.
From content creation to handling customer inquiries, to gathering valuable insights and much more... AI opens a world of possibilities for solopreneurs and small business owners.
So let's see what are the best ways solopreneurs can use AI in their small businesses:
Use AI in Your Marketing Strategy
Marketing is a huge part of any business, so why not have AI help you with that?
There are so many ways solopreneurs can leverage AI in their marketing strategies. So without further ado, let's see them all:
Use AI to Generate Marketing Copy
Copywriting can be defined as the art of writing persuasive and high-quality content to promote a product, service, or brand.
The goal of copywriting is to capture the attention of potential customers and drive them closer to becoming your customers.
Good copywriting is essential in any business: it captivates attention, builds connections, persuades, enhances brand perception, and boosts visibility for your brand.
But, great copywriting can be hard to do.
So it is a good thing that you can use AI to improve your copywriting skills and transform a text from OK to extra convincing.
There are a few ways you can do this with AI.
While you could ask text-generative AI tools to write text for you, it is not always a good idea.
Instead of completely delegating AI to write instead of you, you should leverage AI to improve your existing copy or gather inspiration on how to write awesome marketing texts.
For example, let's say that we want to write the ad copy for a new social media ads campaign.
We have already written our copy, but we are not 100% happy with it, and we want it to sound more convincing and appealing to our potential customers.
As you can see in the example below, we asked ChatGPT to improve the copy for a skincare brand's social media posts.
ChatGPT took our not-so-exciting caption and transformed it into an appealing and catchy slogan for our ad campaign.
We wrote a whole article about using ChatGPT as a business owner, check it out here: Best Ways to Use ChatGPT in Your Solopreneur Business [+ ChatGPT Prompts]
This is just an example of how you can use AI to improve the marketing copy for your business. You could do the same with emails, newsletters, blog posts, website copy and so on...
Use AI to Generate Promotional Images
Another way you can use AI in your solopreneur business is by generating images and graphics to promote your brand.
Maybe you are looking for a professional image to add to your website, post on social media platforms or send out in your next newsletter.
AI can help you save time by generating high-quality images, art and graphics for your business.
For example, you can use AI to generate professional-looking photos of your products with different backgrounds.
If you own an e-commerce store, this can save you time and money in photoshoots and editing.
There are free tools like Pixelcut (used in the picture above) that let you upload a picture of your product and select the background you like in seconds.
AI-generated images are great for solopreneurs who need quick, royalty-free professional-looking images without breaking the bank.
Use AI to Brainstorm new Marketing Strategy Ideas
We get it, you are a professional marketer, and you are a business owner! So constantly coming up with new exciting marketing strategies is not your forte - especially if you are the only person in your "team."
Fortunately, you can ask AI for help.
In the example above, we used Heights AI to come up with a weekly marketing plan for our online course business.
We have a business that sells online courses teaching people how they can become certified Yoga teachers in under 30 days.
This AI generated a weekly schedule of marketing activities that relate to our business!
