Understand and decline inappropriate requests

An astounding characteristic of ChatGPT is its ability to recognize inappropriate requests and decline to process these prompts. It is also programmed to not respond in toxic, hateful language.

Remember the past conversation

Apart from the existing database, ChatGPT is also continuously taking in your requests. By remembering what you said earlier, ChatGPT is able to come up with the most appropriate and suitable response.

It also means that the more you use ChatGPT, the better the answers become.

Allow users to make corrections

This chatbot also has the ability to understand your follow-up corrections and learn from them, which is incredibly smart for a chatbot.


Your prompt decides the quality of the answers

This is an important aspect that you should keep in mind when using ChatGPT. The better your prompts are, the higher the quality response you get.

In practice, it means that it might try a few takes before getting the results you expected. However, once you have a grasp of what prompts work best, you can slightly twist and change your prompt to get the desired results in different situations.

It might generate incorrect information

Not all answer provided by ChatGPT is 100% correct. There is still room for “occasional” incorrectness.

Many users have caught ChatGPT giving widely wrong answers. The tricky part is that ChatGPT can deliver that sound credible.

That’s why you need to fact-check before using information delivered by ChatGPT.

How to use ChatGPT to benefit your business

Use ChatGPT for product research

One of the most important pre-launch processes for any business is product research. It includes:

  • Find the in-demand products
  • Understand customer’s pain points and expectations
  • Discover what to improve the products and how to do better than your competitors

Find the in-demand products

Here are some simple prompts that help you to find out some new product ideas:

  • “What are the most popular new ?"
  • “What are the most popular new that cost between ?"
  • “What are the most popular new on ?"

In addition, ChatGPT can also be used to give you some suggestions on the complementary products that you can cross-sell with this product.

  • “What are the best cross-selling products for ?"

Understand customers’ needs and find new opportunities

Here’s one example of how you can utilize ChatGPT for product research.

You want to sell baseball jerseys on Amazon for example. Before choosing the supplier, you want to know what qualities customers are looking for when searching for a baseball jersey and what you can do to make your product better than the existing offers in the market.

An effective way to gain these insights is by going through reviews of the existing products in the market.

With ChatGPT, you can do this research faster and more effectively. ChatGPT can help you to analyze a set of data and provide both overview and detailed insights.

Here’s one way to gain these insights by using ChatGPT:

  • Find similar products on Amazon with the highest sales and reviews
  • Use scraper tools or extensions (Instant Data Scraper for example) to scrape all the reviews written by customers
  • Put this data into ChatGPT and ask the following questions:

“What do customers love most about the product?"

“List all the issues customers are complaining about the product."

“What should be done to improve the product?"

Based on the responses, you can quickly identify the quality that your products must ensure and the possibilities to compete with your competitors.

You can also further explore the data by requesting ChatGPT to write compelling product descriptions based on the reviews.

With just a few simple steps, you can save a ton of time spent on doing product research. With the newfound insights, the next step is to find products and suppliers that meet the requirements or bring the suggestions into action to improve the product quality and customer’s overall satisfaction.

Use ChatGPT for writing copy and content

ChatGPT can save you a lot of time in crafting copies for your email marketing.

  • Product reviews
  • Blog posts
  • Landing page copy
  • Social media posts/captions

For example:

  • “Write an email to ask for customer feedback.”
  • “Write Facebook posts for Valentine’s day t-shirt products.”

Tips to write better prompts:

To get a more detailed and suitable copy for your content, you can play around and add more information to your prompt.

Add more details to your expectation

Use “Use the voice of customers on Amazon to write a testimonial for a quilt blanket”

If you are not satisfied with what you are getting, you can hit the “Regenerate response” button for different results. Or add new details to your prompt.

With the thriving of AI tools, our future will be changed significantly. Instead of fear, take this as an opportunity to grow your business, improve your outcomes and save more time.
