How to give ChatGPT's Advanced Data Analysis Internet Access 🌐

We’re taking a first look at Dall-E 3!

Dall-E 3 is coming to ChatGPT soon but right now it’s only available through Microsoft Bing.

We’re checking out the new model and seeing just how good it is!

🤷‍♂️ What’s Going On and Why It Matters:

We prolly shoulda done an episode like this sooner.

After all, we have more than 30 in-depth livestreams covering ChatGPT.

In the end, we all want better outputs and to save time when working in Generative AI.

Sometimes, we’re hesitant to go too deep down these shortcut and ‘hacks’ route, as we’re firm believers in doing things the right way.

And real talk: if you’re only looking for shortcuts and hacks inside ChatGPT, you’re gonna walk away with subpar results.

Don’t get us started on copy and paste prompts.

Buuuuuuut our team has been using the GPT tech for about 3 years now, so we quickly learned some dos and don’ts when ChatGPT was released in November 2022.

So, skip the learning curve and let’s dive in on these ChatGPT hacks! 👇

🦾How You Can Leverage:

Wanna know some best practices and ChatGPT shortcuts?

We got you!

It’ll be worth your time to watch the whole episode, but let’s break it down reaaaaaaaaaal simple for y’all.

Here’s a quick highlight of the 5 ChatGPT hacks that’ll save you time and increase your output!

1 – Default to plugins mode 🔌

Let’s be real: plugins mode is what you should be using 90% of the time within ChatGPT. There are four modes in ChatGPT plus: Default, Browse with Bing, Plugins, and Advanced Data Analysis.

In our experience, the Default GPT4 model has no use-case, and the Browse with Bing has VERY little use-case. (You can go watch that episode HERE) And more on ADA later. But for now, you should probably stick with plugins mode.

Try this:
Make plugins mode the main mode that you use in ChatGPT. You can even quick launch a new plugin chat by using this link: https://chat.openai.com/?model=gpt-4-plugins

Also, go watch this episode, where we go over our top plugins.

2 – Swap out Google Search 🔍

If you wanna get ahead and stay ahead in the ever-changing world of GenAI, you’ve gotta let go of old habits. Such as using traditional search engines. So if you’re still using old-school search engines like Google, Bing, or Yahoo, it’s time for an upgrade.

Try this: 
Previously, we talked to Marc de Grasse, the president of Digital Marketer. One of his hot tips: use ChatGPT instead of Google search.

Even if you’re not ready to go all-in on ChatGPT, you can still opt to use Google’s AI-first search option, SGE, or Search Generative Experience.

3 – Use an internet-connected plugin️ 🌐

If you want to avoid hallucinations, ChatGPT needs access to the internet. Because as we all know, Large Language Models can lie. And make things up.

Try this:
This one’s simple: Give ChatGPT access to the internet. And make sure to check out our episode, where we go over some of our favorite internet-connected ChatGPT plugins, among others. And no, Bing Chat, Google Bard and Claude are not actually connected to the internet like you may think.

4 – Use Custom Instructions️ 🗣

OK. This one should be taken with a grain of salt.

After all, we even did an AI in 5 last week on why Custom Instructions might not be good for you. So why are Custom Instructions still considered a great hack?

Try this:
If you have limited use-case for ChatGPT, Custom Instructions can still save you a TON of time.

If you’re new to Custom Instructions, it’s essentially a shortcut to pre-prompt ChatGPT, or give it access to information or instructions that it should apply to every chat. So if you use ChatGPT mainly for one purpose, use Custom Instructions.

5 – Give ADA access to the internet 📊

Advanced Data Analysis is like toggling on ‘Beast Mode’ for heavy data projects. Whether it’s crunching millions of data points, or making easy lifting of heavy coding or dev projects, ADA is a great mode to explore.

Buuuuuuuut, because it’s not connected to the internet, it’s still using data cut off at September 2021. So tread carefully when asking ADA for advice or best practices.

Try this:
Combine the best of both worlds and give ADA access to the internet. We already broke down how to do this. Here’s a refresher if you missed it.
