Custom GPTs are here, and in OpenAI's Dev Day announcement, (former) CEO Sam Altman mentioned that a 'GPT Store' with revenu-share will be coming soon. Naturally, this got a lot of people excited to start building their own custom GPTs; and potentially get in on a slice of OpenAI's $1.3 billion revenue pie.
But, the official store isn't open yet, and details surrounding the exact revenue share model are still just speculation.
In the meanwhile, we wanted to share some create ways you can earn from your beautiful custom GPTs.
This is the main one that everyone is talking about. And while it isn't open yet, it's not a bad idea to set your best custom GPTs to 'Public' and start racking up the conversation counts. Chances are OpenAI will be featuring custom GPTs with the highest chats (there was even mention of a leaderboard), so share your custom GPT link far and wide and start tallying up those chats.
Until the OpenAI store launches, and even beyond, offering your custom GPTs behind a paywall can yield profits. By following the blueprint of successful online courses or template sites, you can charge for access to exclusive, powerful GPT tools.
Another viable revenue stream is offering custom GPT creation as a service. Businesses and individuals who recognize the value of AI but lack the technical know-how present a growing market for this personalized service.
Finally, a more indirect but profoundly impactful route is using custom GPTs to optimize your own business processes. Enhancements in efficiency, productivity, and cost reduction translate to savings and potential profit increases.
Custom GPTs open a landscape brimming with lucrative possibilities. Whether through direct sales on an emergent platform like the OpenAI store, gated access to invaluable tools, personalized development services, or boosting your enterprise's productivity, these AI models offer more than just intelligence—they can translate directly to revenue. For those ready to dive into this opportunity, the custom GPT arena is ripe for innovation and profit.
