How to write accurate prompts for great results in GPT
27. June 2023
How to write the perfect prompt to make the most of chat GPT? We know and we're delighted to offer advice. The language model improves thanks to your input. The better prompts people write, the more GPT will enhance. To ensure your utmost convenience, we present tried-and-tested tips.
Example: As a marketer, your task is to develop a campaign for the upcoming year that promotes a handmade soap that has remarkable skin benefits. Your target audience are middle-class women aged 35-50 residing in Prague.
Example: You're writing a newsletter for KravMaga365, a company promoting self-defense courses that is recruiting new members from September. Suggest me the subjects of the email.
Put requirements in context
Example: I'm a copywriter, but I'm getting bored with my job. I'd like to change careers. Tell me what my career options are.
Think about the length of the prompts
Thinking about how long the prompt is equally important. A longer prompt may provide more context and detail, yet it may pose challenges for the model to understand. On the other hand, a shorter prompt may be simpler for the model to grasp, but may not provide sufficient information for a satisfactory response.
To be taken seriously by the GPT, start questions with action verbs: create, write, do, generate
Bad example: can you tell me how to become a content marketer in 2023?
Good example: create a precise plan for me to become a content marketer in 2023.
Use quotation marks
The result will be much more specific
Example: write me an essay on "climate change is causing me climate grief"
