Tech enthusiasts, get ready to be amazed by the power of AI and the entrepreneurial spirit of one individual who took advantage of it. In less than two days, an entrepreneur managed to create a chatbot using OpenAI’s language model, ChatGPT, and sold it for a whopping $10,000 to Originality.ai. But that’s not all, the journey was filled with twists and turns that make this story even more exciting.
Meet Shawn, a corporate SEO Strategist who has helped grow sites to over $1 million per month in revenue. Now, he’s turning his attention to growing his own niche sites and scaling them to $100,000 per month, and helping others do the same. But his latest venture is something truly unique.
It all started on a Sunday night when Shawn introduced ChatGPT to his friends, and they were blown away by its capabilities. That’s when an idea struck him, could he create a chatbot that is easy to use and doesn’t require a login? He reached out to a friend (Alton) who he saw was creating cool stuff using OpenAI’s API, and asked if he knew how to get the API to show up on a WordPress site.
With the help of ChatGPT, he was able to figure out how to add the API to a WordPress site and built a simple chatbot that could answer questions. He named it “Answers by AI” and launched it on a WordPress site. To his surprise, within a few hours, the site received visitors from four different countries.
But the story doesn’t end there, as he decided to send out a tweet about his new chatbot, and it started to gain traction. Within 24 hours, the site received over 20,000 visitors, and he received an offer to sell it to Originality.ai, a company that detects AI-written content and plagiarism, for $10,000 and a bologna sandwich.
Shawn was able to create and sell a chatbot using OpenAI’s language model, ChatGPT, in less than two days, and the best part is, he had a lot of fun doing it. The chatbot can be found at www.answersbyai.com and Originality.ai can be found at Originality.ai, both are worth checking out. This story shows the potential of AI and the creativity of entrepreneurs like Shawn who can leverage it to create new and innovative products.
