5 Ways To Make Money From Home Using AI In 2024


While fully remote, high-paying jobs may be on the decrease, freelancing is on the upward trend. Professionals are quickly realizing that one does not need to be confined to office walls, or the confines of any one employer at all, to be financially successful. If employers won’t grant reasonable flexible working requests, workers are taking matters into their own hands and are opting for creating their own version of flexibility, through freelancing and undertaking side hustles from home.

Since artificial intelligence became popularized from late 2022 and early last year, AI has taken on significant traction and people have discovered many unique uses for this technology.

One such use is that of leveraging AI tools and AI-powered software to make more money. With just a few Google searches, you can easily find use cases and examples of how to earn money as a full-time freelancer, or as a side hustle, with AI. From selling stickers and emojis to online course creation and generating slide decks, the chances you have to boost your salary and improve your personal finances are endless.

In case you’re overwhelmed with all the options, here are a few to begin with:

1. AI Video Scripts

Use artificial intelligence tools such as ChatGPT (or another chatbot) to generate video scripts for YouTube. You can establish a faceless YouTube channel, and conduct tutorials with just your voice and a script, letting your visuals and practical demonstration do the rest of the talking.

Of course, it’s always important to ensure you focus on a specific niche for your channel, which can be anything from math tutorials, to English lessons, to cooking or DIY tutorials.

2. Print-On-Demand with AI

Print-on-demand is a popular way to make money as a work-from-home side hustle. In case you’re wondering how it works, print on demand, with AI, happens when you use AI tools to generate catchy quotes, slogans, and even designs, which you then get printed via a print-on-demand service, into items such as mugs, bags, t-shirts, and notebooks.

Having your own e-commerce store, such as Shopify, is helpful so you can list all your print-on-demand products and attract traffic.

3. AI-Generated Artwork

Another way to make money with AI is to use it to generate artwork. For example, tools such as Midjourney can be used to create beautiful illustrations of nature, bouquets of flowers, bunches of fruit, or other scenic depictions, which can then be edited and sold as digital artwork on Etsy or other platforms.

You would need to ensure the accuracy of your digital artwork, however, as sometimes hyper-realistic figures and objects inside an AI-generated photo can look flawed, elongated, having extra limbs, or come across as having been touched up too heavily.

4. AI-Powered Copywriting

If you already do copywriting as a side gig or as a full-time freelancer, have you thought of using artificial intelligence to boost your work quality and output?

As a freelance copywriter, you can use AI tools to make the process easier by generating content outlines, heading and title ideas, and entire pieces of marketing copy for websites and social media. This should then be edited to ensure the copy does not sound robotic, have grammatical errors, or is factually incorrect.

5. AI-Powered Newsletter

Finally, you can try using AI to help you write weekly or monthly newsletters, which saves you time and frees you up to focus on connecting with your followers. Writing newsletters can be monetized, since, if you have a large subscription audience, you can get your newsletter sponsored, or assign advertizing space.

You can also hyperlink affiliate links or links to your own products and services in the newsletter.
