A short introduction: why use LLM for startups?

LLM (Language Learning Models) like ChatGPT can understand and generate texts that suit a wide range of tasks essential in the everyday life of startups: chatbots for customer support, email sales and proposals, market research, and so on.

They can adapt to new data and learn from feedback. In short, ChatGPT can give startups a competitive advantage. Max Rascher, known as the AI Guy, compiled an interesting set of tools that can be applied to different tasks within the daily operation of a technology company.

Let’s see some examples of ChatGPT applied to your business for email campaign creation, competitor research, SEO optimization, landing pages, and product description generation.

ChatGPT for email campaign creation

You can use ChatGPT to create compelling subject lines to increase open rates, including multiple options for engaging email content segmented and targeted campaigns.

For this matter, you can use ChatGPT to A/B test the elements of your campaigns: subject lines, CTAs, and body texts. The most common cases for email campaign creation with ChatGPT are copywriting, subject line generation, list segmentation, A/B testing, and performance analysis.


You might also include in your prompt: a FAQ email to new users, an educational email to new customers, a secret email for returning customers, and an email specializing in customers who haven’t purchased in the last two months.
