Unleash Your Inner Artist, Earn While You Sleep: The Secret of AI-Generated Patterns

AI-Generated PatternsI’m always on the lookout for unusual (weird, strange, bizarre) businesses, here is one I've never encountered before: Selling patterns. Not like the patterns that make a dress, but the ones that are on the fabric itself. I'm not kidding.

These are AI-generated patterns, and people are making good money doing this. It’s a tangible way for anyone, even beginner artists, to generate unique, profitable designs.

Why Patterns? The Niche Goldmine

The beauty of patterns lies in targeting specific keywords and smaller niches. This way, you cater to a focused audience eager for your designs, leading to consistent sales without overwhelming competition.

Imagine – your artwork adorning phone cases, mugs, and fabrics, all thanks to the power of AI.

From Pixels to Profits: Selling Your Masterpieces

The Beauty of Passive Income

This is where the real magic happens. Just imagine waking up to notifications showing your patterns flying off the shelves, all while you're sleeping (or sipping your morning coffee). With the right approach and platforms, your creativity becomes a self-sustaining income machine. And the best part? It's scalable. The more patterns you create, the more passive income potential you unlock.

Embracing the AI Future

As AI evolves, so do the opportunities for artists. What used to take hours of sketching and designing can now be achieved with a few prompts and a dash of creative spark.

And that means the rest of us non-artist types can now do things we only dreamed of doing. Like designing fabric or shopping bags or phone cases. It’s wild what we can do with AI and how easy it can be to turn our new creations into profit.

Do File Names Make a Difference?

“What the heck are you talking about? Who gives a flying flip what you name a file?”

Believe it or not, your readers, customers and subscribers care.

In fact, your file name can make the difference between your PDF getting read or trashed.

Today I downloaded two free ebooks. These are excellent books with terrific information written by two seasoned professionals.

But the file names were nothing more than random gibberish, like this: gbjdftg874%65&jsfo7w64.

Now imagine you get a new subscriber who downloads your PDF onto their laptop, but they don’t open it right away.

A few hours or days later, they see this file named, “gbjdftg874%65&jsfo7w64.” They don’t have a clue what it is or why it’s there, because the name tells them nothing.

In fact, it looks like spam or strange hacker stuff. It’s a little scary. Where did it come from?

Sure, you think they’ll remember it’s from you, but 9 times out of 10 they won’t.

And many of those subscribers will delete that file without ever opening it.

When they do, you’ve just lost your chance to make a great first impression with your new subscriber. They’ll never know what they’ve missed, and when they see your emails they may not even remember you because they never read your PDF.

Put as much thought into your file names as you do your titles. You’ve gone to all the trouble of getting a new subscriber or customer, so now make sure they open that file and read it.
