How to Use ChatGPT to Boost Your Productivity
Suitable for business professionals, business owners or for just the curious!
Unless you have been living under a rock, you will have heard of ChatGPT. In short, ChatGPT is an artificial intelligence (AI) powered chatbot that can help increase productivity in your small business.
ChatGPT burst onto the scene with a bang in late 2022 and has quickly established itself as a major player on the world stage at the forefront of a new technological wave of innovation.
Personally, I am obsessed with ChatGPT and AI. My two career passions have always been IT and Writing. These two worlds have now collided in spectacular fashion and I cannot get enough of it.
I now use ChatGPT (prior to that I was using another AI tool called Jasper) daily. Jasper was a subscription model and I loved using it, but ChatGPT is free (for now) so bye bye Jasper. In fact, I have got to the point with AI that I cannot imagine life without it. With frequent use and practice comes expertise, and while I would not consider myself an expert, I have developed a level of expertise that has increased my productivity in so many ways.
With the help of AI (of course), I am writing a series of articles to help you, as a business professional, business owner, or just as a curious person, discover some of the ways you can use ChatGPT in everyday life to boost your productivity.
Why you must get on board with ChatGPT Now
AI simply cannot be ignored and if you are a business owner or a business professional,
you need get on board asap or get left behind. One of the great things about AI, is that it is low-cost or NO cost. This means that there are no excuses for ignoring it.
Those who embrace this technological wave will benefit from increased productivity, increased efficiency and effectiveness which will leave their competitors scratching their heads in the dust cloud you leave behind. Read my article about the dangers of being a technology laggard here.
Getting started with ChatGPT – No Cost!
Currently ChatGPT is FREE. There is also a paid version, however the free version is more than enough for the average user to reap benefits.
Limitations of ChatGPT
Please be aware that AI is not completely reliable. On their own website, they state that the product has the following limitations:
- May occasionally generate incorrect information
- May occasionally produce harmful instructions or biased content
- Limited knowledge of world and events after 2021
Are there any risks with AI?
Yes. The technology is new and evolving. There is evidence that the writing output is not always accurate. There are also concerns that Google and other search engines will penalise websites (with a lower ranking) that use AI written content. How do you avoid these risks? You must fact check your content. You must rewrite your content to a certain extent to ensure that the tone and message you are conveying is genuine to your brand.
My recommendation: NEVER take 100% AI generated content and use without editing. The content tends to be a little verbose and bloated and often is not that great to read without a tight edit. Your content must be
interesting, relevant and informative to your audience or your will lose them.
What are Prompts
Before we get stuck into the ways to use ChatGPT right now, we must cover off what is meant by a Prompt. So who better to ask, than ChatGPT itself, what a prompt is:
10 Areas you can Use ChatGPT in Your Business Right Now
1. Up Your Customer Service Game with more FAQs
2. Email Templates
: The output from ChatGPT for letters and emails tends to be very formal in the layout, introductory text and summary text. This one is not too bad, however I feel that the sentence ‘As you know, we discussed…’ would get a bad reaction. ChatGPT does not do feelings very well and this is a good example. Does anyone remember the scene in Terminator 2 where Arnie asks young John ‘Why do you cry?’ This is about where we are at with AI right now.
3. Blog Post Ideas
4. Social Media Content
5. Product Descriptions and Social Media captions
