Create bulk, branded images in Dall-E 3 and ChatGPT 🖼

Did you know you could create branded images inside ChatGPT using the DALL-3 mode?

Wanna know something even better? Using a secret method, you can create branded images in BULK.

We know, sounds awesome right?

We’re showing you how!

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

Will there even be humans writing in the future, or will it all be Chad GPT?

(Thanks for taking my job, Chad!)

Might sound crazy, but it's also very possible. After all, if there's one thing Large Language Models are good at, it's writing content.

So will there be future pros still … prosing?

To get a good answer, we supposed that two pros who know prose could propose the future of prose. (See what we did there… Can you jive like THAT Chad?!?)

Matt Thomas is the Owner of Perfect Prose Writing & Editing, and he joined Everyday Al to talk about the craft. Matt dished on some of his views on the future of writing and editing with our host Jordan, a writer himself.

Where did the duo land?

Good writing will always translate. And there will always be a place for humans to have their hand in crafting content. That role, though, is gonna change due to AI.

Matt talked about his background in technical writing and editing, and how the surge of GenAI tools like ChatGPT has forced him to change his relationship with writing.

But it doesn’t mean writing skills are no longer useless. In fact, it might be the opposite.

Some topics we took on:

  • The initial feeling of being threatened by AI's writing capabilities.

  • Acknowledgment that AI is a tool, not a replacement for human creativity.

  • Using ChatGPT as a second opinion or writing partner to improve word choices and expand on ideas.

  • Belief in the potential and innovative possibilities of AI in the writing space.

  • Using prompt engineering principles to effectively utilize large language models.

Up your alley? Make sure to go watch the whole episode, then let’s talk about how to apply it all. 👇

🦾How You Can Leverage:

So the future of writing is one where AI is heavily involved, one way or the other.

Got it.

But what’s that mean when it comes to YOUR writing? Whether you’re a professional writer or not, this breakdown still applies to you.

The content creation game is changing for big brands, marketers and business leaders in all facets of life. AI-powered content means consumers and clients will expect more and better personalized content.

So, the future of writing and content creation means leveraging AI for better and more relatable content.

Here’s 3 takeaways for everyone, based on our conversation with Matt.

1 – Start small and experiment ️🧑‍🔬

Figuring out a consistent use-case for your writing or editing in ChatGPT can actually be challenging. 

When it can do a little bit of everything, you can actually get analysis paralysis when it comes to leveraging ChatGPT and other large language models. 

Try this:
Don’t just use ChatGPT to push out mediocre content. Instead, break down the different ways that LLMs can help you in your content creation journey.

From ideation and researching to proofreading and content promotion, think of ChatGPT as more than just putting words on a page. 

2 – Treat ChatGPT as a second opinion 🧠

You know all those times you've stared at your screen, unsure if your writing is pure gold or just fool's gold? Take a page outta Matt’s (writing) book and put ChatGPT to work as an assistant. 

Think of ChatGPT as a writing partner who's always ready to give their two cents. Bounce ideas off it, get suggestions, and watch your writing transform from okay to absolutely fantastic.

Try this: 
Like Matt talked about, you don’t have to view ChatGPT as a competitor to your own writing. Instead, put it to work for you as an assistant or second opinion. Try a prompt like this. 

Assume the role of a writing assistant. You will carefully and meticulously analyze the writing sample provided. Be extremely thorough in your analysis, dissecting everything from the tone of voice, cadence, angle, comprehensiveness, clarity, structure, flow and call to action.

In doing so, please carefully critique each of those categories and give me detailed feedback on a specific way to improve in each. Also, please give me 5 specific and detailed ways to improve on the writing, with detailed examples. Avoid generalities and vague responses. Only respond with extremely detailed feedback with specific examples.

As a reminder, the audience for this writing sample is {audience} and we are hoping to {goal of the writing sample} with this writing sample. 

Here’s the writing sample: 
{paste your writing sample}

3 – Good writing means good prompts ✍️

Matt stumbled upon something when he first started using ChatGPT. Sure, maybe the quality of content from ChatGPT wasn’t immediately up to his standard. But, his skills as a writer quickly translated to better prompting.

So even if AI-powered content creation tools like ChatGPT, Google Bard and Anthropic’s Claude continue to improve their writing abilities, it doesn’t mean we humans are squeezed outta the equation. Far from it, shorties.

Try this: 
Want in on a lil secret? Good writing leads to great prompting.

Because prompting and prompt engineering is a somewhat new skillset to many of us, we think it’s complex or out of our reach. But if you can write well and communicate clearly on a certain topic, it means you can probably prompt even better results out of large language models.
