Webinar: AI Prompts for Content Marketing

AI Prompts For Content and Strategies

Just 90 days ago, our last webinar featured only Chat GPT as an available tool. Today, we’re excited to introduce Bard and Llama, along with several other API-based tools. Explore how content marketing, a powerful digital strategy, engages and captivates both site visitors and advertisers. Leverage this approach to build authority, connect with your target audience, and boost customer acquisition and retention.

How to start? Prompting

The prompts for ChatGPT are suggestions to guide it on what should be generated next. Prompts can also be used to refine the output by providing additional information or feedback on what was generated. In summary, prompts are a useful tool to assist in guiding and customizing text generation by ChatGPT.

Tips on Prompting

  1. Talk to the AI like you would talk to a person. When talking to a person, it would be natural to expect someone to miss your point initially and require clarification. This is called interactive prompting. Don’t be afraid to ask multi-step questions. Ask a question, and get a response. Based on that response, ask another question. 
  2. Set the stage and provide context. Writing a ChatGPT prompt often involves providing relevant background information to set the context of the query.
  3. You can tell the AI to assume an identity or profession. You can make ChatGPT write like it was a pirate or Shakespeare, but you can also have it write like it’s a teacher, a marketing exec, a journalist, or any other perspective you want it to consider.
  4. Test. Test. Test. Different prompts, approaches, versions, rephrasing. Until you get the desired output. 

Prompts for Content Marketing

  1. Write a blog post about the Best of Miami, Florida.
  2. Provide a comprehensive guide to planning a perfect vacation in Miami Beach, including tips on accommodations, dining, and must-visit attractions. This blog post must contain at least 2,000 words. Your tone is friendly and informal.
  3. Paragraphs must be a maximum of 4 lines long. Include bullet points summarizing the main topics. Create a list of suggested images. For the SEO portion, write a meta description under 160 characters.

Webinar: Integrations to Power Up Your Online Directory Website

Now let’s get to the good part and show examples of AI Prompts for Content Marketing that you can start using right away! Remember, always double-check all the information the AI tool gives back to you after you prompted.

  1. Create five pieces of compelling copy that will encourage customers to sign up for our email list about deals in Miami.
