Everything Wrong with the GPT Store!
So OpenAI’s GPT Store is live and unfortunately, it’s not great…yet.
We’re reviewing the GPT Store and showing you what’s wrong with its current state and why OpenAI messed up.
🦾How You Can Leverage:
That’s OpenAI’s GPT store, in a nutshell.
As much as we gush over ChatGPT, it’s not all roses, unicorns and golden spicy chicken nuggets.
Sometimes, we gotta call it like we see it. And sheeeesh this one’s kinda bad.
If you’re at all into ChatGPT or wanna know more about how the GPT store works, today’s show is for you.
And even if you’re already a vet at building GPTs, you’re gonna learn a thing or three.
So what is the GPT store, and how does their lukewarm rollout affect you?
Let’s break it down shorties. And make it spicy, with a double dose of the 1-2-3 treatment.
1 – The GPT Store background 🛍️
A. Tiered rollout was wonky
There was an announcement, a launch, and a ‘wait until later for the real ‘Store’ part.
Launching the store without monetization features live really killed the momentum OpenAI built.
Or, maybe that’s intentional, like Joanna pointed out on the livestream.
B. Plugins likely phasing out
All signs are pointing to the fact that OpenAI is slowly/eventually phasing out the Plugins mode inside of ChatGPT, which is a huge mistake.
GPTs can only be used at a time, and are largely task-based. Plugins can be used three at a time, and combined properly, can automate every aspect of your business.
Adding to the rollout confusion? Even though the store is live, monetization isn’t coming until sometime later this quarter.
A. Not an actual store
The 'store' name implied a commercial platform, but it functioned more as an unfinished directory.
No buying GPTs. No selling GPTs. No monetization. Just some links.
B. Features aren’t working
Try searching for anything, and you’ll see what we mean:
Good luck finding relevant ‘marketing’ GPTs in the store.
But, we built a better one. See what happens here when you search for Marketing GPTs?
Actual Marketing GPTs. Hundreds of them, actually.
Reply directory to this email, and we’ll send you the directory we built
C. GPT backends aren’t secure
There’s definitely a copycat problem in the store right now as a simple prompt can expose the configuration instructions for many GPTs.
A. Build, but don’t publish
Don’t get us wrong. GPTs are legit amazing. The ability to build something that does your tasks for you without having coding/development skills? Bonkers.
The writing is on the wall, and it seems Plugins mode is on its way out.
C. Learn GPT building the right way in our Inner Circle
Yeah, it’s taken a while.
Buuuuuuut we promise it’ll be worth it. (Thanks for your patience!)
We’ve been working on our GPT building course, but we’ve delayed it to coincide with the launch of our free Inner Circle community.
Trust us — this gonna be epic.
Just reply Inner Circle to this email, and we’ll put you on the early access list
