How to sell AI art prints online
In this article, I’m going to share some tips to help you get started creating AI-generated artwork and monetizing that art.
Please note that most AI graphics generators require you to pay for the premium version to access AI images available for commercial use.
Here are the seven steps required to create and sell AI-generated artwork.
1. Research and planning
First, conduct extensive research using tools like Sales Samurai to identify popular keywords and artistic trends to better understand what potential buyers are looking for.
Next, analyse and identify market demand for different art styles and themes so you can direct your creative efforts towards profitable avenues.
2. Generating artistic ideas
Use the AI generator called “Midjourney” to create royalty-free photos to use as a base for your art.
Make midjourney suggestions based on identified keywords and trends and guide the AI to create art that resonates with the market.
Explore the artworks created by Midjourney and select the pieces you want that might excite potential buyers.
3. Improvement of a work of art
Enhance selected graphics with AI Image Amplifier to ensure the downsized version retains its quality and enhances the visual appearance.
4. Commercial Use/Copyright
Please consider the need for a paid mid-journey plan before proceeding as additional features or licenses may be required for commercial use.
Take the time to understand the licensing and copyright implications of AI-generated graphics to comply with legal requirements and protect your work.
5. Setting up a print-on-demand service
