Artificial intelligence has been in the headlines for months and is growing by leaps and bounds. Developers have been saying their AI chatbots will bring major changes to just about every industry. Many people have become used to AI-tools that help with online shopping, grammar checkers, and more. However, there’s much more that AI can do, especially for companies.
One AI chatbot that’s become particularly popular in recent months is ChatGPT. The tool has become insanely popular with everyone, from online gurus to businesses. But what does ChatGPT really have to offer your business?
What is ChatGPT and How Does It Work?
ChatGPT is highly advanced software that uses AI to formulate long-form answers to questions and participate in intelligent conversations in an understandable way. In other words, ChatGPT has the ability to mimic human thinking and speech.
Ultimately, ChatGPT-3 (or ChatGPT-4—now available for paid users) is a very smart chatbot. When you write a correctly worded prompt, the chatbot can answer questions, write emails & essays, solve maths problems, write stories/articles, and generate software code. Once you input the prompt, you can expect an answer usually within only a few seconds.
The chatbot is easy to use with no steep learning curve. What’s more, there’s both a free version and a paid version of the AI you can use (the paid version offers more premium features).
You can find ChatGTP on this website. You’ll need to sign up for an account and when the account has been confirmed, you’re taken to a page that shows some examples of how the chatbot can be used. Near the bottom of the page, you can input prompts, such as questions, instructions, and more.
ChatGPT is easy to use, and it’s quite capable. Some users have even found that the chatbot can help with schoolwork (writing essays, though this is not recommended!) and more.
ChatGPT for Business
Businesses are also discovering the benefits of ChatGPT for everything from improving customer service, increasing employee productivity, and more. The chatbot has become a valuable business tool for companies of all sizes. Here are some applications that your organisation may be able to use:
- Creating a Sophisticated, Intelligible Chatbot
Having a reliable customer support system is a sign of quality customer care. However, most organisations are not able to hire customer service reps for 24/7 working hours. That’s a bit expensive for most businesses. But AI can step in to fill the gap.
Most of the normal chatbots today have limited responses, leaving many customers frustrated and their problems unsolved. However, with ChatGTP, customer interactions can be improved with a flowing conversation that’s more like talking with a human. Responses can also be more attuned to follow-up questions. What’s more, the AI is a more cost-effective solution than hiring human customer care reps.
- Creating Suitable Product Descriptions & Catchy Sales Pitches
Some companies choose to write their own product descriptions. Doing so can save money over hiring copywriters to do the work. However, coming up with original descriptions when you have to write for multiple products can be challenging. ChatGPT can help here, too.
The chatbot can generate effective product descriptions in a matter of seconds. It can also develop sales pitches that are concise and engaging. There’s no need to have employees try to create sales pitches, calls to action, and other elements. All of this can be done by ChatGPT.
- Offering Better-Worded, Streamlined Translations
Companies usually have to pay premium prices when they need marketing materials translated. It’s essential to have material translated, especially with many businesses reaching out to global markets.
The good news is that ChatGPT is a cost-effective tool to create translations for documents, partnership agreements, website & lead generation content, emails, and more. The chatbot can also be helpful when dealing with language barriers between employees in brand offices around the world.
- Developing Social Media Content
Competition is stiff to gain customer attention. Businesses need to get their products and services in front of their customers, with many of them reaching their target audience through social media. Producing social media content in different forms across different social media platforms takes time and energy. Like other writing projects, creating varied and engaging social media content can be challenging. Here, again, ChatGPT can help.
ChatGPT can be used to create short and long-form content, such as tweets, blog posts, guides, reports, ebooks, scripts for YouTube, and more.
However, we must tell you that some search engines (such as Google) discourage the use of AI-created content. What’s more, some of the information included in the chatbot’s content may not be correct. So, fact-checking is a must when using the AI. So, it’s highly recommended that ChatGPT be allowed to create the content. However, the content must then be slightly rewritten to make it sound more “human” and as if it was written by a human.
- Researching Information
Most of us use Google regularly to find information online, but ChatGPT can help your business here, too. The chatbot can be used for a number of research projects, including:
- Brainstorming content ideas
- Keyword research
- Creating outlines for content
- And much more
- Generate Customer Surveys
Here’s an interesting example of work ChatGPT can do for your business. This AI has the ability to create customer surveys or polls to collect customer feedback. Use this prompt, “Generate a customer feedback survey.”
The result will be a generic survey; however, you can add more specific details in your prompt. The chatbot will then create a more targeted customer survey or poll for your target audience.
- Business Plan Writing
Business plans are essential documents that are needed by organisations of all sizes. While these can be complex documents, ChatGPT can help you by suggesting ideas or offering some directions that may help develop your business plan.
The chatbot can also evaluate a business plan you’ve created and come up with more ideas for some business plan elements.
Even so, we don’t recommend solely relying on ChatGPT to write your entire business plan. But the AI can still help you put certain parts of the business plan together.
Summing It Up
So, there you have it! ChatGPT is an amazing software tool that can help with many aspects of your business. Remember that the AI can make mistakes by providing information that’s incorrect or outdated. We highly recommend checking all information before using it in a final document or project.
There’s no question that ChatGPT can be a beneficial tool that increases productivity and helps your business find success! The key is to find those uses for the chatbot that make sense for your company!
