How to Make Money Selling AI Prompts $$$
I’m going to teach you how to sell AI art prompts and make money.But of course, this video will also include instructions on the basics of writing prompts.
Without you knowing it, this new skill of prompt crafting has become a must-learn for us.
This is because AI is taking over society, and we are living through a revolution.
But many people don’t have the time or the understanding of how to use prompts and what it all comes down to.

How to Sell AI Art Prompts and Save Time
There are a number of ways to sell prompts.
For example, this Etsy store has made over fifty thousand dollars in the last six months selling prompts.
One of the most important things about selling prompts is actually doing the legwork for other people.
The whole idea is you want to save people time.
So, by generating the prompts and putting them through Midjourney, and selecting the best, you are saving people time.
Different Uses of Prompts
You can create prompts for ChatGPT for creating SEO content.
Moreover, you can also create prompts for AI art generators like Midjourney for creating different types of art for many different situations.
Exploring AI Art Prompts for Midjourney
First up in this article about how to sell AI art prompts is that I’m going to be looking at AI art prompts for Midjourney for architecture.
I’m doing this because I can see there is some search traffic for this specific term, ‘Midjourney prompts for architecture.’
It’s getting currently 90 searches a month, and you can see that it’s exponentially increasing.
Profitable Niche Options
You can also have a look at a couple of profitable options by taking off the first two letters.
For example, ‘realistic characters.’
And if you just start putting in the first letter of any word, it will give you more options of a beautiful woman, for business logos, coloring books, wall art, and wallpaper.
All of these are perfect niches where you can create guides of prompts for.
AI prompts are like magic spells, and you can sell your own book to other Wizards looking to get the most out of AI Technologies.
Using Chat GPT and Midjourney Art Prompts Plugin
I will be using a plugin on Chat GPT that creates Midjourney art prompts.
To use this, all you have to do is make sure you’re a plus user.
If you are not a ChatGPT Plus user, don’t worry.
I have this video where I explain how to prime Chat GPT to create Midjourney prompts without a plugin.
Make sure you select ChatGPT4 and plugins.
Installing the Realistic Plugin
You’ll need to install the Realistic plugin, which uses a prompt that I developed in a previous video.
So, once you have the plugin installed and activated, all you have to do is request a prompt in your given style.
I have asked it to generate a prompt for a futuristic building in the style of Zaha Hadid.
Generating Prompts with Midjourney
Now you can see we get two options for prompts, which we can take, and we’re going to put them into Midjourney and generate these.
We’re going to type in ‘/imagine,’ paste in both of our prompts here, and at the same time, we’re going to ask for 50 more architecture prompts.
Categorizing and Ordering Prompts
What you might want to do is start breaking this down into categories.
So, you could look at residential buildings, commercial buildings, functional buildings like stadiums, skyscrapers, or any other type of structure that you can imagine.
This allows you to then segregate and order your book in a more natural way.
Exploring Architectural Prompts
Now, ChatGPT will continue making prompts, and we can take these and continue putting them into Mid-Journey.
You can see already we’re getting some pretty stunning architectural prompts.
I asked it specifically in this case for architecture in the style of Zaha Hadid, who is one of my favorite Architects.
But you might also ask for prompts in the style of other famous architects.
Some architects that I will be exploring include Frank Gehry and Tony Gaudi.
Using Kittle for Design
Next up on how to sell AI art prompts is put order on the prompts and save them and put them into a guide.
I’m going to be using a fantastic tool called Kittle.
Kittle is a fantastic AI design tool that allows you to apply advanced text effects and use a whole library of very well-designed templates.
Choosing a Poster Template
I’m going to start off with a poster template, and I’m looking for something that’s going to fit architecture prompts.
So, I quite like this template which has this modern photographic feel to it.
It’s an urban street photography poster template.
But I was also tempted by a couple of other options.
Firstly, this Art Attack exhibition could work well, and even this Mondrian-style piece.
‘Art is the path to being spiritual, beautiful advice.’
But I’m going to go with this design.
Customizing the Cover
This will give us some great typographic elements to use for our cover.
And I’m going to replace the text and take one of these prompts and adjust it so that it’s going to fit in the aspect ratio that I’ve got for the image in Kittle.
Adjusting Aspect Ratio and Style
So, I’m going to change the aspect ratio at the end to 9 by 16.
And I’m also going to ask it to be black and white, have a repeating element, and have high contrast.
This is so that it fits the same style as the image that is on the cover already.
And while that’s going, I’m going to come back and I’m going to check on how all of our prompts are going.
You can see it stopped after five in Naughty ChatGPT.
I will say please continue and please use influences from famous architects like Gehry, Hadid, and Gowdy.
But I’ll take a few more of these and paste them in while we’re waiting.
This is the way to go.
You’ve got to have a few working threads on at the same time.
I also like this one because it has some people at the bottom, which brings that feeling of reality and life to a building.
And so we’ll hop back into Kittle, and then we’re going to upload my own image.
Uploading Custom Image to Kittle
We do that by going to the left-hand side, going to the uploads icon, and selecting upload media.
From here, we’ve uploaded our image, and we can simply drag and drop it into the piece.
We can now position it, and if you come to the layers panel, which is in the bottom right-hand corner, you can move it to where you want it to go.
Using Kittle’s AI Generator
Now in Kittle, there is also an option to use its own AI generator.
And to do that, you can come to the left-hand side, down to the bottom left, and select the little star, which is Kittle AI.
We can even try pasting in our Mid-Journey prompt without the parameters at the end, which are only relevant for Mid-Journey.
And you can see it’s outputted a pretty interesting stylized abstract section from a building, which is actually fairly beautiful.
Exporting the Design from Kittle
From here, you can come to the top right-hand corner, and you can download your design.
So now you come up to the right-hand corner, and we’re going to export our beautiful design, and we’re going to make sure that we export it as an SVG.
Combining the Design in Figma
Now, in this part of the process on how to sell AI art prompts, we’re going to go to Figma, which is a new tool we’re going to use to come up with a book.
You can use any design software that you like.
And so, we can drag and drop our design into Figma.
Creating Artboards in Figma
What we’re going to do is we’re going to press ‘A,’ which means artboard.
Then we’re going to select on the right-hand side, paper, and we’re going to select A4, which is going to be the vertical size of our beautiful work.
We’re then going to press ‘Alt’ and drag the artboard across to create a second artboard.
You can also, of course, press ‘A’ again and click on A4 once more, which will also create two new artboards.
Adding Example Images and Prompts
Now what we’re going to do is we’re going to paste the example images as well as the prompt into the document.
So, we’re going to come back to Mid-Journey and start saving each of these.
Now I suggest doing the four-option and One upscale two.
Arranging the Design Elements
Now we come back into Figma, and we’re going to drag and drop these onto the page.
By going to our downloads, dragging them and dropping them over, and popping them in, we can resize them.
Furthermore, we can put them next to each other, select them both, and just drag and resize them.
Now we’ll go with a pretty simple layout here.
I’ll put them next to each other, and then we’re going to take the prompt as well and paste the prompt underneath.
I will title it, and that’s looking pretty jazzy.
Adding Extra Features
You can spend some time adapting the layout as you want.
You might also want to add some extra features such as page numbers and a contents page, as well as an overall guide about how to use this book.
Of course, you can use ChatGPT for that content.
You could ask it to write a short introduction for a book about AI art prompts for architecture.
And exactly, we’ve got some great information to put here at the beginning of our book.
Generating a Full PDF Book
But I will now repeat this process until we have a full PDF of all 50 pages.
Once you’re done, you can select all of the pages and then come to the top left-hand corner and go to File > Export Frames to PDF.
And what this will do is it will give us a whole PDF exported.
Now when we open this up, we will have our entire beautiful book.
We are now at the crux of our article on how to sell AI art prompts.
Creating Preview Images
Together as we’re going to be selling this on online marketplaces as well as our own online shop, we’re going to need a few preview images.
So, I suggest that you use some of the architectural images as well as generate a book cover mock-up.
Finding Book Mock-ups
One place you can get free mock-ups is Mock-up World.
If you go there, it will allow you to search for different types of mockups.
You can search for a book, and you can see we’ve got some interesting book mock-ups here.
We have to see which one of these takes your fancy. I think I want one without hands.
Generating Your Own Mock-up
Another option is to generate your own mock-up using Midjourney.
And another simple way that you can do this is to look on Unsplash for pictures of book covers.
I’ll be using this very simple mock-up.
Uploading the Book to Marketplaces
Next up, we’re going to upload our book to a couple of different marketplaces.
Now, there are a number of different ways to sell your prompts online.
One is to sell them individually using a service called PromptBase.
I put one prompt up on him, and it has sold a grand total of 20.
But I only put one prompt up, and I did not put any effort into marketing it.
You can see that people do buy prompts.
But what I recommend is selling on Etsy.
This is because I’ve been doing a little bit of research, and I found this one shop, Fexyl, which is only selling prompts for different platforms.
And they’ve had more than 4,000 sales and an average cost of around ten dollars per product.
That’s going to be giving them at least a revenue of fifty thousand dollars.
And it looks like they’ve only been operating since the beginning of this year.
So they’ve done pretty well in the last five months with around ten thousand dollars a month in revenue.
Using Alura.io to Get Etsy Shop Stats
I can also use this tool with Fexyl, which gives us more detailed insights into the analytics of their shop.
You can see which is their top seller.
You see it’s this ChatGPT Etsy listing generator.
So, this is a great example of finding an excellent niche that you might want to target.
Creating Your Own Listing
But what we’re going to do is we’re going to create our own listing.
Now I’m going to give you a quick few tips here when you’re creating your own listing.
So, once you’re creating a new listing, we’re going to make sure to add really high-quality photos.
So, we’re going to be adding our beautiful presentations.
And for the first image, you want to be using more of an ad-style image than a representation of the product.
Importance of Title and Keywords
Now you’re also going to really want to spend some time on the title and keywords.
So, we’re going to be making sure that we use the keyword that we identified earlier, which was ‘Midjourney Prompts for Architecture.’
You’re also going to want to use ChatGPT to generate a listing, and we can use Text GPT to do that too.
Determining the Price
Now we looked at some of the pricing, and I think a price of around 13 usd would be fair in this market.
Running Sales and Advertising on Etsy
You also have the opportunity to run sales on Etsy, which definitely draws in more buyers.
So think about how you’re doing that.
Make sure to change your quantity to 999 so you don’t run out of stock.
And you can choose at the bottom whether you want to advertise your listing.
I suggest putting some ads out, at least for the first few days.
And when you’re ready, you can go and submit your product.
Driving Traffic to Your Prompts
Now, I recommend that you try to drive traffic to your prompts in any way you can.
I had some success in generating some blog traffic.
So, I created a blog post with top prompts for each category.
I will show you how some of these worked out.
So, I had some success in getting organic traffic with ’10 Best Mid-Journey DND Character Prompts’ and also for ’10 Best Mid-Journey Logo Prompts.'”
Utilizing Blog Posts for Promotion
What’s great about this is you funnel people through to the 10 free prompts.
And then you can advertise your own products in the blog post.
So, it’s a great way to generate free traffic as well as drive people toward your paid offering.
You can also do this broadly.
So I did quite a few different versions, and you can see which are getting the most traffic.
And then you can even build a product based on your research.
Promoting Work on Social Media
So, you can see here that a lot of them have been getting organic traffic.
But the best-performing ones are logo and character DND prompts, which is Dungeons and Dragons, I believe.
Is it the DND shorthand for this?
Of course, you can also be promoting your work through other social media sources like YouTube, Instagram, and even within Mid-Journey itself.
Creating Additional Guides
So, I’m going to create a couple more guides, and we’re going to come back and check how they’ve got on in a couple of weeks’ time.
Thanks for watching.
