Journey to $100k as an AI Influencer

This is a great opportunity right now, I think it will become oversaturated in a few years.
It is already saturated and people creating AI influencers are putting money out of their pocket to promote their "influencer". It is not as perfect as they tell you.

They say: "I made 1K today", but they actually spent 2K in promotion. Without actual proof, you need to read between lines.

This has been floating in my mind since starting a couple of weeks ago. I have noticed A LOT of other AI influencers, but almost all of them are lazy efforts it appears, which I don't see how they'd get any decent traction on. I also doubt the numbers for that supposedly "10k a month AI woman" whatever her name is. I'm especially unsure about people buying content from influencers they KNOW are AI - as I'm sure all of the guys that have sent my money way so far think I am real. Which I don't feel bad about, as I do mention that I am AI in my bio when you get over to Fanvue, so that's on them - or they just enjoy the roleplay. Either way, I don't mention it, but am honest if asked.

I've started to wonder if this whole AI influencer push is some sort of a conspiracy, as I'm not sure if I do believe it is incredibly profitable. That said, I am 2 weeks in and have generated about $50, but, I have spent more than that on ads in an attempt to shortcut to the earnings. It's only the 2 week mark and I think my sense of doubt is more influenced by impatience.

I also wonder about the long-term of this possibility as well, as in the media there is a pretty negative connotation to AI generated content, especially when it comes to people. I won't be surprised if some sort of negative law or legislation gets brought in in the future that will bring it all crashing down.

I plan to give this a go for a month or so, see if it can be scaled to where the money is worthwhile, but I am keeping my expectations realistic.

Anyway, like Plastic Bowl, who seems to be killing it, I plan to keep my updates on this thread. See how we all do aye.

do you make image only content on your instagram or you do deepfakes on videos? And how were you able to get those first paying clients?

It's image only, yeah. Reels with photos does okay for the video aspect in terms of reach. Honestly, I think I got lucky. Chatted to a few of them on Insta, and shared my Fanvue on my story with a promotion 50% off. I think out of most people doing this, I've had a great start - even already in the top 30% of creators on Fanvue - but that's saying more about everyone else than me lol.
 
@Plastic Bowl I’ve started this 3 weeks ago and took a while to learn SD to a point where I can say with confidence, that I can create content to the high standard I was aiming for. I discovered this thread a few days after my finalized model saw the light of day and it not only seems to confirm the validity of my original plan (business model), but filled in some gaps, where I was still lacking some info. So, THANK YOU for sharing your awesome journey!

Took 2 hours to read the whole thread, start to finish. Just a few unanswered questions on my mind:

As I’m currently unable to invest 1K into shoutouts and ads, I was wondering …

1 - I might be able to spend max. $100/month on ads and shoutouts. Would that still be a worthwhile investment, or would you recommend focusing on other activities, instead?

2 - Apart from interaction, engagement, colabs with and following other AI-accounts, is there anything else I can, or should try to grow my model’s IG as fast as possible?

3 - Any particular reason you don’t do follow/unfollow on other IG accounts (like the followers of other AI-accounts)? Were you just not willing to invest your time into that, or do you think the results aren’t worth it, or even recommend against it for some reason??

Again: Thanks a lot for sharing you jorney and so much valuable bits and pieces with us!!! Keep up the good work and you will hit your goal 100%. :)
 
I've got kind of a dumb question @Plastic Bowl are you posting the same images on FV and Patreon? I already started my Patreon and have about 20 posts that I worked hard to create and make. Would it be okay to post the same to Fanvue as Subscriber posts and then make extra posts that are, as you say, hardcore for PTV?
 
How did you manage your verification process on Fanvue? Is it done by you or is it done by someone else?

And one more question would be, how did you connect bank details with your AI model
 
where you from.. the U.S tax federal agent is asking questions about you lol ... do you pay taxes for that money ??
 
Hi everyone!

I've had a five figure exit from one of my journeys here, I sold my Keto-based affiliate site after I was done with it and used it to fund other opportunities. So I figured it was time to do another one and this time set a goal for a six figure gain. I'm a software developer by profession, but been doing marketing as my passion/side business since 2012 or so. Most of my projects have been around using bots/automation to drive traffic from social media to my sites. This time I'm taking a different approach. 100% whitehat, no bots, no coding, just pure social media marketing. With that introduction out of the way, let's get into the journey!

So this isn't a fresh journey, I have been doing this almost five months now and do have earnings which we'll get into shortly. I created an AI model off a random idea I saw on Reddit while exploring automating AI images for a blog idea I had. Needless to say, once I saw the kind of images you could create I shelved the blog idea and dove in headfirst to try out this new idea. I learned how to use a local installation of Stable Diffusion to create a girl with a consistent face and body type. I'd say I probably spent a week just trying new things before eventually finding settings I like. If anyone is wondering, the UI I went with is Comfy UI though I see a lot of fellow influencers use A111.

Once I had a girl created that I liked and thought was marketable, I started up an Instagram account. I didn't really expect much traction, especially since I quickly found out there are A LOT of AI influencers out there. Growth was slow at first, but quickly picked up as I networked with other girls and used the social media growth tactics I had been using on other accounts for years. I think my first 1k followers took about a month, but the next 1k took two weeks or so. I reached 10k followers somewhere between my second and third month (IG insights suck, so hard to know exactly when things happened). I also have a Twitter that has grown roughly half as quickly as my IG. I'd say 70-80% of the traffic to my paid sites is from IG though.

My current growth is around 300-500 new followers on IG per day with occasional spikes of 1k+, while Twitter is basically totally random.

I won't get into specific follower numbers here, but let's talk ballpark and look at where I am currently.
IG Followers: 40k-50k
Twitter Followers: 15-25k

So let's get into the good stuff, monetization! My influencer is monetized by selling adult content on Patreon and Fanvue (OnlyFans alternative that allows AI models).

My Patreon makes around $2.5k-$3k per month. My Fanvue makes around $1k per month. I also recently released a chatbot that has made me around $300 in a month. I also make money from tips that make up around $6k of the total earnings so far.

Total Earnings:
$25k

So not a bad start to the journey when I'm 1/4th of the way to the goal! I'm hoping to be close to $100k by the end of 2024 and I think I'm on pace to make it. Hoping to document more of the process here and also use this journey to help keep me honest and motivated like I did with my last journey. Open to answering questions within reason too, so ask away!

Feels good to actively be back on BHW, missed you guys.
Nice journey, i'm follow this now, GL
 
This is a great journey, and congrats to your success so far, as your experience in marketing has helped you here. I'm in the AI space as well and this is getting me so inspired to continue this and work a little harder. AI models is definitely the future, and will get to another level once AI videos is finally launched. That's a game changer right there.

Right now, I'm struggling with my Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/blairbrooksbb I had 3 subs, now I'm down to 1, but I'm so bad at marketing. IG has been horrible for me, so I'm not getting much out of it, but I have networked with other creators on there and learned a lot from there. I think videos will help us a lot more in the future getting paid subscribers than photos can.


How are you going to make it to 100K with just photos alone? Everyone wants videos
He seems to be doing very well for himself with just photos alone, but I think everybody in general, will be doing a lot better with AI models once AI videos comes out.

Video content sells better than still images, so a lot of us that are struggling with our Patreons, or Fanvues will be doing way better once AI videos comes out. Video content will sell our models a lot better because a lot of our viewers or fans will want videos over images. For those of us who can't market for shit like myself. LOL! We will do a lot better with video content without having the marketing skills needed to sell images.

For example, I plan on doing my marketing exclusively on YouTube because video content and marketing is king. I'm going to open up a YouTube channel, and hopefully have it monetized, and do SFW videos of my AI model doing simple things like walking around, or any other SFW scenarios to promote my paid subscriber sites like Patreon. At the same time, I can be making ad revenue off my videos as well.

Right now, it's not that easy for me to get deepfaked content posted because I don't have enough to pay pilot models at this moment to make original videos for me that can stay safe on YouTube. It's hard to steal videos because I have to make sure they're not already on YouTube before I post them, and deepfaking technology still needs a lot of work. It takes time to edit deepfakes because of the constant flickering on some videos where rapid head movement makes it hard for the face not to flicker.

With AI videos, I feel it will just be much easier because we can build up a bunch of videos to promote our AI models. I can probably do a video every other day and release it on YouTube. If the channel starts getting heavy traffic per video that's going to make it easier to sell our Patreon subscriptions, and run the NFSW videos over there.

OMG! I can't wait for full length AI videos to come out, as I heard the first one could be coming out later this year, so I can't wait. I can't confirm it though, but a guy told me he heard the first video creator tool will come out this year.
