The OG of GPT chatbots

14 Dec 2022

It's annoying when ChatGPT is down (how do I search stuff again?).... but I love their "Sorry we're at full capacity" screen, each time with a new generated and context-relevant message.





to remove unnecessary pre-text and post-text

Return only the main response. Remove pre-text and post-text.

to get simple language

Voice and style guide: write at a 5th grade level. Use clear and simple language, even when explaining complex top8ics. Bias toward short sentences. Avoid jargon and acronyms.

to format in Markdown

Format in Markdown. Use bold, italics, and links to make the response more readable.

for punchy and attention-grabbing writing

Voice and style guide: use sentence fragments and figurative language. Write as a master of brevity would. Frequently use short, pithy sentences that pack a punch.

to get a professional tone

Voice and style guide: write in a professional and informative tone. Avoid slang and colloquialisms. Use industry-specific language and terminology. Provide detailed and accurate information. Use statistics, research and expert opinions to back up your argument. Write in a way that is both informative and knowledgeable.

ChatGPT Plus

$20/month for the value I'm getting out of it - time saved & unlocking things I would not have done before - is a no-brainer to me.

Easy access to the community of users, with a seamless transition from the product's interface to a Slack or Discord server, should be normalised in B2B SaaS.

For most at least.

ChatGPT Plus' Discord here as illustration - with direct access from the main prompt interface.




Not sure if providing feedback really helps - they must know about the "hallucinations" issue by now.


for Sales

ChatGPT Plus (or any of its alternatives) is a must-have now I think for anyone in Sales.

Helps you do quick research:
- into a specific sector/industry/company
- to clarify & learn the lingo and acronyms used
- to surface trends & talking points

Just in a few seconds, eg ahead of a call.... or even ON a call.

Amongst the many other things it can do.


"ChatGPT has changed SEO forever"

The funny thing about that:

  • GPT solutions will help churn out SEO-friendly content like never before
  • but chatbot interfaces based on GPT might make typical SEO redundant (ie "ranking on 1st results page" will not matter anymore when most search results are generated)
