Why Pay OpenAI after we buy AI Products from Internet Marketers

This is an exciting time for all humans, unless living under a rock. Even if one decides not to participate in society, he is still benefiting from some form of artificial intelligence simply by using a smartphone and its apps.

The Internet Marketing industry is currently utilizing AI technology in various ways such as newsletter apps, eBook makers, AI image creators, chat bots, and more. Each week, new products are being launched with affordable front-end offers during the early bird or beta phases. However, some newcomers may later realize they need to pay OpenAI to fully utilize the products, leading to an influx of complaints and refund requests sent to the support desks.

Let me explain why we need to pay OpenAI after we buy the AI products of the IM vendors.

You paid to use a SaaS (Software as a Service) product designed to connect to OpenAI.

For example, if it’s a chat bot for your website, it needs to connect to OpenAi’s ChatGPT model in order for it to work. And that requires a paid subscription to OpenAI which empowers your IM vendor’s SaaS.

Did you buy an eBook maker? Newsletter maker, perhaps? They created these user-friendly platforms customized to the data set (features and functionality) promised by the vendors from the sales pages.

If you bought an AI eBook maker or any AI writing service, you don’t need to pay for a ChatGPT subscription. You just need an OpenAI API License Key. As of the time of this writing, you can use the API Key for free worth $5 of use. After that you have to provide your credit card details and indicate if you wish to have your credits renewed automatically.

Look at my usage for 15 days in my OpenAI account, I only spent 10 cents, not bad at all. I try not to use it for research because more often, the AI also looks for data from the Internet and sometimes they would use the same phrases and clauses when you check its work on Copyscape. Besides, their output are based on 2021 data and not real time. So what I do, I still get my own research done to give the necessary credits to the online source while I write with the help of Grammarly for proofreading. If I am not happy with my composition, I ask AI to rewrite it. Then I compare and consider some AI entries that I liked.

Providing the AI with a good prompt is very important. The key to getting what you want from AI depends on how specific you can be – the format of the article, the tone of writing – is it for a white paper or for a storybook? It also helps to indicate the age range of the target readers and other demographics like working women or video game designers. The AI uses a synthetic data set and an age group formula is included as a variable into the bucket for a good response from AI.

Ultimately, deciding whether to invest in OpenAI subscriptions depends on individual preferences and needs. While some may choose to avoid these subscriptions, others may find them valuable for enhancing efficiency and speed in research tasks. It’s a pretty good investment for oneself and a contribution to OpenAI’s evolution.
