Night Light | ChatGPT Did NOT Write This

Reed of the Week

No, AI is not going to totally disrupt the content creation process... yetI've had a lot of people reach out to me in the past week interested to hear how accessible AI platforms like ChatGPT and Lensa will interact with the Creator Economy. Some believe AI will be able to come in and replace creative strategists, copywriters, thumbnail designers, etc. on creator teams. Since I've seen some stuff on Twitter to this point, I decided to take a look myself. My learning was that we are probably still a good bit of time away from AI being able to do this at a very high level. It takes too much work to get the kind of response you want, specificity of input matters too much as it relates to opaque, creative thinking, and I didn't really get any ideas or answers that felt very outside the box. As an example, I had the AI generate some thumbnail prompts for a MrBeast + Fortnite video:

Here are a few suggestions from me to get the most out of ChatGPT if you want to use it for yourself:Be specific: you can tell it how long you want it to be, topics to avoid, and how many responses you want it to generate.

Use available information to train the AI: add relevant information to the post to keep the AI focused, using the example above I could have added a detailed explanation of what the MrBeast x Fortnite challenge is to help the AI get even closer.Learn how to write a prompt it can work with: There are limitations to what it's able to do, instead of asking "create 3 thumbnails" ask "what would 3 thumbnails look like if...".

Ask the same question multiple times: Every output is different and it seems to learn from the questions you ask. Try asking the same question a few times in different ways.
