Become a Marketing Power-User of ChatGPT

Revolutionize Your Content, Customer Interactions, and Marketing Initiatives with This New & Exciting Resource

ChatGPT has proven to be quite valuable in its early usage – and while many marketers have skimmed the surface of its capabilities, the full variety of its marketing uses is still to be explored. In this blog, we’ll discuss the various possible uses of ChatGPT that have already been uncovered – and will explain how these uses can empower marketers, making marketing processes and execution easier than ever before! Want to be a ChatGPT power-user? Read on.

What is ChatGPT?

Before we dive into how ChatGPT can help your business, and more specifically, your marketers (or you, if you are the marketer), we want to first start by explaining what ChatGPT is. If you’re not familiar, ChatGPT is an AI (artificial intelligence) chatbot from the company OpenAI. The tool is derived from OpenAI’s “GPT” model (Generative Pre-Trained Transformer), adjusted and tweaked for conversational applications. It uses both “supervised learning” or SL techniques – machine learning defined by datasets, and “reinforced learning” or RL techniques – machine learning primarily defined by interpreting an environment, as well as trial and error.

OpenAI’s website explains the resource as “a model…which interacts in a conversational way. The dialogue format makes it possible for ChatGPT to answer follow-up questions, admit its mistakes, challenge incorrect premises, and reject inappropriate requests…(it’s) a sibling model to InstructGPT, which is trained to follow an instruction in a prompt and provide a detailed response.”

That said, it may not be that important to you how ChatGPT works, but if you’re in marketing, it’s important to know how you can make it work for you. Let’s explore several ways your company can (and probably should) be using it.

How Can ChatGPT Make You a More Efficient Marketer?

In today’s highly digital world, marketers are constantly seeking innovative ways to enhance their marketing efforts. ChatGPT has begun to revolutionize the field of marketing, and although the chatbot is quite new, marketers are already using the tool for content creation, meaningful customer interaction, and the conception of successful marketing campaigns…here’s how:

Ease of Research

Marketing practices, tactics, and tools are always changing and evolving. To stay in the know, marketers should really be consistently keeping up with the times – reading news articles, newsletters, whitepapers, journals, blogs, and so on. Yet, it’s hard to stay on top of it all. With ChatGPT, you’re able to input content (such as a blog post, journal piece, or news article) and receive back bullet-pointed summaries or easy-to-read paragraphs, saving you time and making you much more efficient and aware of the industry.

Market Research and Insights

ChatGPT can also be used for conducting market research and gathering customer insights – conducting surveys, gathering feedback, and analyzing customer sentiments. By collecting and analyzing vast amounts of data, ChatGPT can be used to gain a deeper understanding of target markets, help you find trends, and help you make data-driven decisions to refine your marketing strategies.

Idea Generation and Brainstorming

Tired of constantly having to generate fresh ideas and overcome writer’s block? ChatGPT can act as a reliable brainstorming partner, offering creative suggestions and helping you to overcome creative hurdles. Marketers can interact with the model, ask questions, and receive valuable insights, stimulating creativity and generating innovative concepts.

Engaging Content Creation (Blogs, Articles, Advertising, Social Media, and Product Descriptions)

One of the most significant applications of ChatGPT is generating engaging marketing content. Simply provide the chatbot with a brief outline or a few bullet points, and it can produce a well-structured, informative, and engaging piece – from a blog post to a longer article. ChatGPT’s vast knowledge base and ability to understand context and generate coherent sentences enables it to generate fairly publishable content. Yet, it’s important to always fact-check and edit, as (like humans) ChatGPT can still make mistakes.

ChatGPT can also aid in the creation of shorter-form content, such as social media posts, advertising headlines, and emails and email subject lines, empowering you to keep a consistent online presence while saving valuable time and energy. Plus, the tool can adapt to various writing styles and tones, so you don’t have to worry about your content being unaligned with your brand’s voice.

Finally, ChatGPT can help you draft attention–grabbing and persuasive product descriptions – saving you tons of time and leaving your creative energy for other important initiatives.

Interactive Content Creation

ChatGPT can also help you generate interactive and dynamic content to captivate target audiences. Whether it’s with interactive quizzes, chat-based storytelling, or personalized content recommendations, ChatGPT opens a world of possibilities for marketers to deliver engaging and memorable experiences, not only enhancing brand visibility, but also encouraging social sharing and viral marketing.

Language Translation and Localization

In an increasingly interconnected world, multilingual content creation and localization have become significantly more important. ChatGPT’s multilingual capabilities can help you translate articles, blog posts, and other marketing materials into different languages – all while still preserving the original intent and tone, opening new opportunities for your business to reach global audiences and establish a strong presence in international markets.

Although this is a large list of ChatGPT capabilities, we feel it doesn’t (and never will) end there. It seems the world of AI is constantly evolving and reshaping the way we interact with each other and reach customers as marketers. Because of this, you may not be surprised to hear that this piece was derived from an interaction with the chatbot itself!…

The “First Draft” of this Piece? Created by ChatGPT.

In order to create this blog, you could say we had ChatGPT “write” a rough draft. We input two phrases…

1. “Write a blog on how to use ChatGPT for marketing”

2. “Write a blog on ChatGPT uses for content creation”

…and let the bot do its thing! After getting a lot of information, we fact-checked, made edits, and added our personal understanding and experience of the tool and its uses, as well as a bit of our own unique voice. Click here to see the original pieces.

While these original pieces of writing were helpful in the creation of this piece, it still took human, marketing-experienced professionals to bring the piece to life and give it our own effective spin. For any marketing activity where you use ChatGPT as a resource, it’s still important to use your own understanding and experiences, or those of a qualified marketing partner, to take the piece to the next level – meeting your customer base where they are and providing them with materials and communication that suits their needs and expectations.
