ChatGPT has been a groundbreaking application from Open AI. Clearly, one of the most used applications in the past quarter.
The number of users using the application spiked immediately after its launch. We have been using it since its launch and we love it, to say the least. The popularity of ChatGPT could be imagined by the time it took to hit 1 million users – just 5 days.
When it comes to cold outreach, it is imperative to write the right ChatGPT prompts to get the best out of it. Prompts are commands that generate answers to the questions you may have.
As a frequent user of ChatGPT, we can help you with prompts to write an effective cold email, social media messages, etc. All the prompts are tried and tested, feel free to use them!
How to generate high-quality responses from ChatGPT Prompts?
Before we get started on generating responses, we need to understand how to generate high-quality, accurate and concise responses.
The key is to feed the right ChatGPT Prompts, here are a few tips you can follow while using the application to get the best out of it:
1. Be clear
You gotta be very clear on what you want from ChatGPT, use specific prompts. Try to add more details. In the below examples, you will be able to see why this is important.
2. Give some context
Helping ChatGPT with some context in your prompts makes the responses more appropriate. For example, I am a digital payment company targeting co-working spaces, write an email to the VP of Facilities about my company.
3. Be Concise
While ChatGPT can read and respond to long prompts, it is better to keep your prompts short and avoid any unnecessary information. At the same time, don’t shy away from including all the necessary information.
4. Make sure to include constraints
ChatGPT will respond much better to your prompts if you include any constraints. Including constraints is one of the efficient ways to generate the best responses.
For example, Write a sales email to the Director of Sales asking about SDRs struggling to book meetings, and avoid spam words.
5. Include Roles
ChatGPT can act as the person you want it to be. This is helpful in understanding your buyer persona and facing any questions or objections that might come your way.
You can ask ChatGPT to stay in the character so you can come back and continue the conversation in the future.
6. Try and Test
Talking with ChatGPT is like experimenting in a science lab. You always have to try your prompts, test them and adjust them to give you the best responses. Nobody gets it right on the first go. You gotta play with it to get it right.
Here’s how you can make ChatGPT Prompts work wonders for you:
