By Rob Numata

“There aren’t enough hours in the day” is an all too familiar phrase among business owners. Between an avalanche of emails to respond to, tasks to accomplish, and promoting your business, it can often feel overwhelming and leave you feeling depleted of energy. Sometimes, the smallest implements may yield the largest results.

For Copywriting

In today's fast-paced and highly competitive business landscape, companies must utilize every tool to stay ahead of the curve. One such tool that businesses can leverage is ChatGPT, a powerful language model that can help revolutionize your marketing efforts.

Upon inputting a prompt, this artificial intelligence program delivers results in less than 1 minute.

AI, ChatGPT4, Productivity
Chat GPTs interface responds to your prompt in real-time. Given the prompt “Write a marketing pitch in 30 words about 2023 window treatment trends”, ChatGPT returned the result “Transform your home with the latest 2023 window treatment trends! From organic materials to bold patterns, elevate your style with functional and fashionable shades, blinds, and drapes.”

If your small team lacks a social media manager, ChatGPT can help with brainstorming. While the technology is limited in its ability to create content that reflects your unique brand tone and grammar, it can still be a valuable tool in freeing up time that would otherwise be devoted to social media content creation.

Keep in mind that ChatGPT is not a replacement for an employee who embodies your company's identity, but it can certainly be a helpful resource in managing your social media presence.

For Graphic Design
