ChatGPT is getting a lot of buzz for its human-like ability to create blog posts, emails, direct messages, and other types of content from simple prompts.
Is that good? Bad? The start of the Robot Apocalypse?
But until the T-800s and T-1000s arrive from the future to kills us all, I was curious how well ChatGPT would work with our behavioral segmentation & personalization platform. Specifically, whether a user could just grab any of the suggestions it makes related to overall themes, voice & tone, individual subject lines, outlines, use of emojis, etc. and plug them right into a ChatGPT prompt.
I ran a dozen or so tests (sorry OpenAI, I know that cost you all a few cents) and, overall, I was impressed with the results, especially viewing it as a tool to generate first drafts, basic explanations and summaries of current topics.
The only thing I didn't think it did as well was absorb a series of very loosely-related copy points and then weave them all together into something with a "big idea" or central, unifying through-line.
Here's an example of a prompt:
Write a short, formal email inviting a sales manager to connect to talk about the impact behavioral segmentation & personalization software can have on the logistics industry
This is what ChatGPT wrote (in about 5 seconds):
