I asked ChatGPT how to build something awesome here.
Its #1 suggestion was to build an AI-powered fortune-teller, doubling down on the idea when I told it to prioritize quick revenue generation and gave it a $100 budget.
After agreeing on the concept, ChatGPT gave me a step-by-step plan to follow, copied verbatim below.
Here’s a step-by-step plan to help you create an AI-based Fortune Telling website with your $100 budget:
- Choose a website builder: Select a user-friendly website builder or content management system (CMS) like WordPress, Wix, or Squarespace. These platforms often have free or low-cost plans to help you get started within your budget.
- Set up hosting and domain: Connect your Eightball.com domain to your chosen platform. If you don’t already have hosting, you may need to purchase a hosting plan. Many hosting providers offer affordable plans, some even under $5 per month.
- Design the website: Use a template or a drag-and-drop editor to design your website. Focus on creating an attractive, easy-to-use interface that works well on desktop and mobile devices. Clearly communicate the purpose of your website and include a call-to-action (CTA) for users to ask their questions.
- Integrate ChatGPT/OpenAI: Sign up for an OpenAI API key (note that there may be associated costs). You’ll need to integrate the API into your website to facilitate user interaction with the AI-based fortune teller. Familiarize yourself with the API documentation to understand how to set up and make requests.
- Develop the user interaction: Create a simple input field for users to type their questions and a ‘Submit’ button to send the query to ChatGPT. Display the AI-generated response in an engaging manner, such as a spinning 8-ball animation that reveals the answer.
- Test and refine: Test your website thoroughly to ensure the fortune-telling functionality works smoothly and provides engaging responses. Make any necessary adjustments to improve the user experience.
- Launch and promote: Once your website is ready, launch it and start promoting it to attract users. Share it on social media, ask friends and family to spread the word, and consider using free or low-cost marketing strategies like search engine optimization (SEO) and content marketing.
- Monetize: As you gain traction and attract users, consider monetizing your website with ads, in-app purchases (e.g., for premium answers), or donations. You can use ad networks like Google AdSense or work with affiliate partners to generate revenue.
By following these steps, you’ll be on your way to creating an engaging AI-based Fortune Telling website. Good luck!
