Start off 2024 by increasing your marketing efforts. If you can’t afford a marketing company like Bowe Digital right now, that’s okay. We work with budgets of all sizes and try to be as flexible as possible for our customers, but humans are expensive. AI, like ChatGPT, is not.
However, ChatGPT isn’t perfect. The Roomba runs into walls, Alexa will respond to her name even if it’s coming from the TV, (Schitt’s Creek fans get it) and ChatGPT lacks human creativity and causes occasional plagiarism problems. Still, it can be a great tool to use if you don’t have the budget for a marketing team right now or are just getting started.
Tips for Writing Effective ChatGPT Prompts
Writing for robots is a lot like writing for humans. The more information you give them, the more you’ll get out of it. Combine the following tips to come up with a single set of instructions.
Start by defining your project. Whether you're seeking content for an email campaign, social media ideas or a witty blog, a well-defined description, including the purpose of the project and intended audience, will set the stage for a more focused response.
Give ChatGPT All the Deets. Tell ChatGPT its role, providing a point-of-view for the AI tool to write from. Include any background information, statistics or facts, along with any key elements you want to be incorporated.
Bring Your Vision to Life. “Your prompt should specify how the output response should be generated, including the tone, length, style and structure, as well as research that needs to be conducted,” as stated by Coursera. You should also include any additional rules and restraints.
