Using ChatGPT to write your marketing content for youFeb 06, 2023
ChatGPT is all anyone in the marketing world has been talking about the past few months.
I must admit, I was pretty darn sceptical. I mean, I spent YEARS learning to be a good writer and there is a certain amount of natural skill that makes the difference between someone who does it well, and someone who struggles.
After playing with ChatGPT for a few weeks, I am bold enough to say it is an absolute game changer for those of you who find creating content hard. You can use ChatGPT to:
- Conduct research for you
- Edit or improve on content you’ve written yourself
- Write copy for you from scratch
- Find ideas for content that people will be interested to read
- Even just tweak your email subject lines
So what is Chat GPT?
It’s a chat software online that you can have entire conversations with.
It is free to use and it is has risen to fame with its ability to write content.
While it definitely is going to be the new cheating in schools, for people who aren’t natural writers it is going to be a god send.
How to use it
Click try ChatGPT.
You will be prompted to set up an account (still free). Your screen will look like the screenshot above. You can then type anything into the box at the bottom of the screen (see below) and press send. ChatGPT will respond and so on.
It also saves past queries for easy reference.
How to use ChaptGPT for content marketing or to write copy
If you’re writing copy for social media, emails, website or more – you can use ChatGPT as your editor, polisher or even to write your copy from scratch.
- EDITING/IMPROVING: You’ve written something and you’re not sure if it could be better. You can ask ChatGPT to write your copy to sell more products, to be more humorous, to be more engaging, get a better click through rate, etc. Simply phrase the query and then paste your content in straight after. Press send and let the tool work its magic.
- WRITING. It can write copy from scratch for you. For example, you can ask it to write a Tweet for you and list some key words or topics. Or a Facebook post. Or so on. I do suggest to not use it as is, but give it your own edit and add your own brand flavour. It doesn’t just stop at short content – you can even ask it to write you a blog post or an article. Just keep it mind it is likely to not be original, but it can be a great frame that you can flesh out with your own ideas and thoughts.
- FINDING IDEAS. It’s also a great way to get some structure or ideas for your content. You could ask it what are the most popular blog topics about animal welfare or domestic violence and it will give you a host of article suggestions that are likely to rank well.
- RESEARCH. Want to get a quick answer to a research question? Ask the app and get some basic information together quickly.
- WRITE A SUBJECT LINE. I know a lot of people hate writing the subject line for their marketing emails. You can share your article and ask ChatGPT to suggest a subject line that will get a good open rate.
And just for some fun – keep reading below to see what ChatGPT wrote when I asked it to write an article for content marketers about how to use ChatGPT. It was eerily similar to what I created for you above!
