Do you know how many blogs and social media posts are written by Artificial Intelligence?

You might be thinking “I can use ChatGPT and AI to write my content?! Score!!

To that we say: Pump your brakes.

Can it write your content for you?


Should you let it do all the work so you can slap it on your website and call it a day?

Absolutely not.

ChatGpt is a powerful tool when properly utilized, but as with any tool, context and awareness should always be used in equal measure.

This article will show you the best way to combine your skills with ChatGPT’s abilities.

Relying on ChatGPT Marketing as a Magic Solution Rather Than a Tool is a Common Mistake

Your customers don’t want to take advice from a robot. They want tried and true advice from a real person, and they are paying for that. They are counting on you to be the expert in your industry.

This doesn’t make ChatGPT less useful, but it does enforce the fact that when you use it can be as important as how you use it.

Using ChatGPT effectively as a tool begins with one very important step: the prompt.

The Significance of Crafting Effective Prompts

We’re not going to sugarcoat this: if you put in a subpar prompt, you’re going to get a subpar answer. Sure, you can tell it to write you a 350 word blog post about training skittish horses and that’s exactly what you’ll get. But it will be dull, drab, and dreary.


If you really want content that will knock the socks off of your audience, you need to feed ChatGPT something with a little more pizazz. We asked ChatGPT to provide us with a funny 350 word blog post about “training skittish horses that is entertaining to read, advanced enough to appeal to experienced riders, but simple enough so that new horse owners can understand.”


This is what you’ll get:

As great as this is, it doesn’t match our brand voice. So we’ll have to make some changes, but it’s not a bad start.  


If you want results like this, there are five things you need to consider when writing a prompt:

  • Be clear and concise
  • Be specific about your question or topic
  • Use open-ended questions
  • Provide as much context as possible
  • Be respectful (you won’t get anywhere calling the chatbot names or making inappropriate requests)

One limitation to keep in mind when writing your prompt is that ChatGPT doesn’t have access to information prior to 2021. It won’t be able to tell you who won the Kentucky Derby in 2022 or how many shelter dogs have found their forever homes so far in 2023.

As the technology advances, this limitation is likely to become a thing of the past.

Helping With Analytics is One of the More Creative Ways to Use ChatGPT

If you keep track of your analytics and KPIs, you know how much of a headache crunching the numbers is. 


There are so many formulas to remember.


It seems like everywhere you turn, there’s a new KPI to keep track of.


Sometimes you feel like you’re drowning under all of the numbers.


GPT-4, the faster and more impressive older sibling of GPT-3, makes data analysis a breeze.


It has advanced multimodal capabilities that allow it to pull captions and analyses from images. This will be extremely useful for analyzing visual data.


If you have to write a report and you’re stuck on a section or even getting your ideas out on paper, you don’t have to worry. This revolutionary AI software can learn your writing style and work with you (not for you) to produce high-quality reports and other content. You can generate whole reports with a single, well-thought out prompt.


If you’re responsible for providing stakeholders with predictions or you want to prepare for the next quarter you can use GPT-4’s predictive analytics feature to help you hit the ground running. It can generate predictions based on historical data. This makes it an excellent resource for sales forecasting, risk mitigation, and predicting customer behavior.

You Can Also Use AI to Write Emails

ChatGPT can be used to generate personalized newsletters based on customer behavior and preferences. AI can help you tailor your emails to your customers based on interests and buzzwords. You can do this in a few ways.

Optimizing your subject line

If you want people to open your newsletters, you need a good subject line. ChatGPT can help you create enticing subjects by providing recommendations based on its analysis. As an example, pretend you own an aquarium supply store. You’re writing what you think are direct subject lines that has the information your customers want to know:
  • We have fish food
  • Our shipment of goldfish is delayed
  • We’re closed for the holiday
Sure, these subject lines are direct and to the point, but they’re not exciting. According to Earth Web, people get 100–120 emails every day. Dry subject lines simply do not stand out in a sea of punny, flashy, and more enticing subject lines. This is why ChatGPT is such a useful tool for business owners who want to excel in email marketing: it can take those boring subject lines and make them better. Check this out:
  • “Get hooked on our fish food! (No, not literally)”
  • “Goldfish are fashionably late, sorry for the delay!”
  • “Gone fishin’ (and closed for the holiday)”
Don’t these sound better? Don’t be afraid to add a little humor or make your emails sound more human. Your customers will appreciate it more than a robotic regurgitation of important information that they likely would have ignored.

Analyzing customer behavior

If you want to attract and retain customers, you need to understand said customers. ChatGPT can help identify and understand patterns, and even divide them into lists based on their behavior, preferences, and interests.

Testing different variations

Relying on A/B testing is an excellent way to analyze the performance of your emails. You can use ChatGPT to review the performance of each variation and provide recommendations on which ones are going to be the most effective for certain audiences.

ChatGPT is an Excellent Tool to Improve Your Content Creation Services

One of the pillars of marketing is content creation. 


It’s also one of the most difficult tasks at times.


You have to know how to capture your customers’ attention, identify trends, and in some cases, create trends.


But how do you know what your customers will respond to? How do you have time to keep your finger on the pulse of what’s trending? And how do you create a trend that will have an impact? Surely you can’t do all of this while running a successful business. You don’t have the time!


ChatGPT can be the virtual assistant you didn’t know you needed.


You don’t have to spend hours studying the latest trends and memes just to keep up with what’s popular these days.


This handy chatbot can:


  • Write product descriptions that will have your products flying off the shelves
  • Generate clear and catchy headlines that capture your audience’s attention
  • Create blog posts faster than you can find something to watch on Netflix
  • Write a wide variety of other content that sounds scarily human-like
  • Produce social media posts that encourage engagement by scouring its database for trending words and phrases
  • Create video scripts for everything from a short commercial to a full-length feature film that will help you get over your “deer in headlights” look when the camera comes out

Keep in mind that just because it can do all of this, it doesn’t mean you should take a hands-off approach in your marketing.


You still need to be the one steering the ship because you know your customers better than a robot ever could.
