How to use ChatGPT to write articles and blog posts for your website

ChatGPT is all over social media and the news. It has captured imaginations being used for everything from getting vehicle fines reduced to writing rap songs! So, can it help you write articles and blog posts for your website? Below we will explain how.

What is ChatGPT?

ChatGPT is an artificial intelligence (AI) chatbot developed by OpenAI. In layman’s terms, you can ask it questions and it will generate replies. It works by gathering data from the internet written by people and using computing predictions to answer questions and queries. At the time of writing it was based on info up to 2021.

Is ChatGPT Free?

Yes, at the time of writing the basic version is free. You can upgrade to Pro for a monthly fee to get priority access. Occasionally, it might run slowly if there is a heavy load but the free version is excellent.

Using this link to ChatGPT you can set up a free account (at present). Your account will store details of your historic queries and answers.

Furthermore, the content that it produces is able to be used (according to some internet sources – you should check this for yourself). ChatGPT doesn’t own the intellectual property of the answers it creates (at the time of writing). However, there is a risk that the data on which ChatGPT was based was plagiarised. If that were the case, the answers generated could also be considered plagiarised (again, check this for yourself).

Additionally, you are able to ask the AI to act in a specific way, e.g., as a “copywriter” or a “marketing expert”. This can help you drive the format of the material that it produces.

Asking The Right Questions

The most important aspect is that the quality of the questions posed drives the quality of the answers generated. For instance, if you write your question badly, the answer can be of very poor quality. This can end up producing output that is far from what you were seeking.

An Example Of A Query

The solution is to construct your queries carefully. In the context of generating an article or blog post for your website, this is an example of how you might construct a query for ChatGPT to write a marketing guide:

Please act as a marketing expert based in the UK and write a unique article to be posted on a UK marketing blog. The article should be a minimum of 1,000 words long and should be titled “A Concise Guide To Marketing”. It should be factual, helpful, and engaging. It should include lots of free marketing tips that will surprise the reader“.

When you paste the query into ChatGPT it then starts to write its response. Typically, that tends to be well structured and presented in a format that could be reused with minimal reworking. Therefore, you could use the answers to your queries in blog posts or as part of a newsletter.

The speed will vary, but in tests, it appeared on the screen as if being typed.

Tips On How To Use ChatGPT To Write Articles And Blog Posts

You may find that the AI occasionally pauses, this may be due to its current load. Simply typing “please continue with the article” can prompt it to complete the piece of content should the process hang.

When it finishes, the text can be selected, copied and pasted into another medium such as Word or WordPress. This is how to use ChatGPT to write articles and blog posts.

Enhancing The Output

Enhancing the output is an important step. You should consider the following:

  • Check the content – make sure it reads well and makes sense. There can be inaccuracies so you can’t assume it will be correct.
  • Add additional content – the output produced may spark other thoughts that you think would enhance the piece. You can edit what’s been written and add additional thoughts of your own.
  • Personal style – some of the output can sound a bit factual and cold, you might want to personalise it to make it warmer for your audience or you might want to make it match your tone of voice.
  • Add internal links – add internal links to other relevant resources on your website or blog.
  • Add external links – it can be good SEO practice to add at least one external link to another high-quality internet resource. This also improves the quality of the content that you are posting.
