Are you using AI in your business yet?
In this quick tip episode of Art of Online Business, I want to talk about AI and give you a little bit of a different perspective than most people have when it comes to this technology.
There are a ton of tools available, and if you haven’t yet embraced them, I encourage you to check them out. However, if you haven’t yet taken the time to understand it and understand what the possibilities really are, I truly think this is critical for the future success of your business.
I firmly believe that if you aren’t at the very least educating yourself on AI and what it can do for you, along with the risks associated with it, you’re going to get left behind.
In this episode, you’ll learn:
- Why AI is now critical for your business success
- Why you could be missing out on growth opportunities by not using AI
- How AI is a necessity for businesses that want to stay competitive
- Ways AI can be used in your business
- A resource you can use to get educated on the ins and outs of AI
- How you can win with AI in the long-term

And. Hey, what's up, my friends? Rick Morty here. Welcome to today's episode, The Art of Online Business Podcasts. And on today's Quick Tip episode, I want to talk to you a little bit about AI and give you hopefully a different perspective than what the way that most people are thinking about AI. And a few episodes ago I shared some tools that I've been using and playing around with that I think that are that are amazing. I'll link that episode up in the show notes for today's episode.
Now for those of you who have not yet embraced AI, and when I say embraced, I don't necessarily mean that you're using all the tools available because there's a ton of tools and it seems like there's a new tool every single day coming on to coming into the space, but embracing AI in terms of understanding it, at least understanding what the possibilities are. I truly think that this is critical for the future success of your business.
For those of you who are sort of sitting back and just sort of watching things and not, again, at least diving in to understand AI what it can do, how it can help you learning about, you know, the flip side of AI and like are there risks and all this like just at least, you know, educating yourself about AI. You're going to be left behind. I firmly believe that. And so, you know, and a lot of people think like, oh, I don't understand, I because I'm not a techie person or, you know, I'm not a computer scientist or anything like that, but you don't need to be.
That's the cool thing. And I is no longer just a buzzword, you know, Chatgpt is I mean, yes, it's a buzzword, but I really think that it's it's no longer just a buzzword. It's not a future technology. It is here. It is now. People are using it in such creative ways. And it's it's a reality and it's already changing the way that we do business. And so, again, if you're not prepared in terms of knowledge, in terms of playing around with different tools and so forth, then you risk falling behind others in your space that are embracing AI and seeing what it can do and to help them, and also losing out on potential growth, you know, opportunities.
So yes, the way that most people are using AI, myself included, partially, is that we're using it to come up with ideas, to come up with, you know, podcast titles or blog post articles, article titles or video titles, video scripts, podcast scripts to write emails. Et cetera. Et cetera. Et cetera. It's a great you know, it's it's much better than looking at a blank screen. It is an idea generator. Now, it's not a silver bullet. Right? It's not going to magically solve all of your business problems overnight. It's a tool. And it's and just like any tool, it does require the knowledge that I'm talking about and, you know, a skill as the more that you use these tools to to be really effective with it.
But the way that we get better using AI and understanding AI and getting that knowledge is to start learning it now and start using these different tools. Because, you know, I saw a headline this morning and I haven't read the article, but somebody was saying that I think this person was like a futurist. And they were saying in the future, in the not so distant future, like in a in a matter of years, it's AI is not even going to be like a term. It's just going to be the way that things are done. And so, again, I'm not going to dive into like the bigger picture of, you know, affecting society and all that sort of thing. I'm looking out for you and I want you I want to encourage you to be thinking about AI educating.
And I'm going to give you a resource here in just a second, educating yourself about AI and just learning as much as you possibly can, because it can do some really, really cool things in helping you become, you know, a better marketer, make you more efficient in your business. It can help your team, all those different types of things, right? And so again, it is quickly becoming a necessity for businesses that want to stay competitive in the space. It's already being used, you know, in businesses to automate processes, to improve customer experience to you can get, you know, really valuable insights from your audience. You can leverage all that to create marketing plans and stuff like that.
Now again, just as I mentioned in that last episode when I shared the tools with you, this is not a copy paste sort of thing, meaning, okay, whatever Chatgpt spits out, you know, like it looks amazing. I'm just going to copy that, paste it and just go do that. That's not the idea. The idea is, again, it's an idea generator to mean among many other things. But in this example here, it's designed to give you an idea to help you get the ball rolling. And then you, you know, you put in your. Knowledge.
Write your experience, your stories, etcetera, into it, and you build it out from there. So it's not like it shouldn't be anyway, but I've been hearing stories about how people are doing this. It is not a copy paste sort of thing. That's not really how you know, that's not how I how I recommend that you use it. So, you know, and you can write something yesterday you're writing like creating tons of social media captions and prompts and stuff like that in a matter of seconds. Now again, perfect example.
You still want to go in there and add your flavor, add your personality into those, but heck, that is a starter for you and makes it so much easier to generate content like that. And here's the here's the I want to take your your thinking around AI to another level. And somebody shared this story with me recently where this metaphor, I should say, and it really has stuck with me. They said that when the refrigerator was invented, it wasn't necessarily and obviously everybody loved the refrigerator because it was the way it was a way to refrigerate food and drinks and so forth.
It wasn't the people that were creating the refrigerators that were most excited. It was businesses like Coca-Cola who made a product that could that would benefit from the the technology. I want you to start to think about that now. Again, this is more advanced thinking on AI, but be thinking about, holy cow, there's this technology. How can I build on top of that technology to build something amazing for my business that would help my customers? That would help my audience? Et cetera.
So to start thinking about that, be thinking about how can I leverage this technology that is AI And there's a ton of different formats, right? But leverage the technology that is AI, which has been around for years and years and years and years, by the way, leverage this technology to build something on top of it. That's really where I think the the like. If you're going to be winning in AI for the long term, sort of the early adopters like that, I think there's huge opportunity there. Now, as I mentioned, I want to give you a resource. I am not affiliated with them in any way, but I'd love what they've built.
It's a membership. It's very inexpensive. I don't know what the price is now. Yeah, I think it is still like $12 a month and I'm going to have one of the co-founders on the podcast here coming up in a couple of episodes.
Rachel But the membership is called the AI Exchange, the AI Exchange and the its membership all about AI and how you can use it in a variety of different ways. Super impressed. It's a Slack community, but then they have a website where, you know, like the membership hub with all kinds of amazing resources and so forth. Like I said, I'm going to have Rachel, I forget her last name off top of my head right now.
I'm going to have her on the podcast here to come on and talk about AI for you all here in another couple of episodes. But definitely check that out again and mention my name. I think I do get I'm not an official affiliate for it, but if you mention my name for every two people, I think I get a free month. So each person's like $6, six referrals, it's like $6 or something like that. But yeah, it's the AI exchange.com.
It's a great resource and it can really help start helping you learn about this, this thing called AI. That is not a future thing. It is here now, my friend. I hope this was helpful for you and hope this gave you a different perspective on how to be thinking about AI for your online business.
