The AI Revolution: Transforming Content Creation in 2023

Ever noticed how tech is revolutionizing AI content creation? Yep, AI is making big waves in the content creation world. Big ones!


Why Every Content Creator Needs to Embrace AI Now

If you're crafting posts, videos, or anything to grab attention, educate, or entertain with the intent of building an online audience, guess what? You're a content creator! And here's the deal: AI isn't just for the tech-savvy; it's your new best friend. Imagine having a digital buddy that helps you create standout content, anytime you need. It's not just about getting things done faster; it's about taking your content to the next level.

The Big Question…

Alright, let's get to the heart of the matter.

Can AI Truly Mimic Your Unique Writing Style?

Ever wondered if a machine can capture your unique flair? Your voice? Your vibe? Well, it's not just a dream; it's totally doable! With the right know-how and AI tools, you can train ChatGPT to sound like you so authentically, it'll feel like you penned every word.

Debunking the Myth of the AI ‘Expert' in Content Creation

Who's the Expert Here?


First things first, let's talk about the phrase “AI Expert.” The truth is, AI in content creation is like the Wild West. It's so new that we're all pioneers here. Yep, even me! I've dug deep and have been applying my 32 years of marketing knowledge to building AI marketing frameworks versus prompts. As I LEARN, then DO, I TEACH what I've learned and implemented, but let's be honest: we're all still learning. So, if someone says they've got it all figured out, take it with a grain of salt.

What They're Teaching

You'll find a lot of folks teaching you to just dump your content into an AI model and expect it to mimic your voice. While that's not entirely wrong, it's not the full picture. It's like trying to bake a cake with just flour and water. You're missing some key ingredients!

Good Intentions, Not-So-Great Advice

Now, don't get me wrong. Most people teaching this stuff have the best intentions. Heck, this was what I taught until I learned what I am getting ready to share with you. Truly, they're not trying to lead you astray; they just don't know what they don't know, yet. And that's okay! We're all in this learning journey together.

The Untold Secret: Understanding ChatGPT's Limitations

So, you might be wondering, “If it's not just about dumping content into an AI model, then what's the missing piece?” Well, here it is, y'all: understanding the limitations of AI, specifically ChatGPT. You see, most experts gloss over this part. They don't tell you about the nitty-gritty details that can make or break your AI training. And that's exactly what we're going to dive into next. Because, trust me, knowing these limitations is like having the secret sauce to making your AI sound just like you!

Understanding AI Limitations


The Content Conundrum

When you're training ChatGPT to sound like you, many are teaching to drop big chunks of your own content ChatGPT to ‘train' it. Things like blog posts, video transcripts, sales pages, etc. But here's the kicker: ChatGPT has a “token” limit. If you go over that, it's like you're talking to a wall; it won't remember a thing!

The Brand Voice Blindspot

So, what does this mean for your AI brand voice? Simple. If you're dropping in content that exceeds ChatGPT's token limit, you're basically throwing your training time down the drain. Your AI won't capture the nuances of your brand voice or the details that make your business unique. It's like trying to fill a cup that's already overflowing; nothing more will fit!

AI Memory Constraints: Token Limits Unveiled

The Token Tally: By the Numbers

Alright, let's get specific. Different AI models have different “token” limits, and here's what that looks like:

  • GPT-3.5: About 3,072 words, which equals 4,096 tokens
  • GPT-3.5-16k: Roughly 12,288 words, or 16,384 tokens
  • GPT-4: Around 6,144 words, translating to 8,192 tokens
  • GPT-4-32k: A whopping 24,576 words, or 32,768 tokens
  • Claude Instant & Claude 2: An even more whopping 75,000 words, or 100,000 tokens

System Priorities: The Hidden Feature

What is the System Message?

Now, here's another thing most ‘experts' won't tell you. ChatGPT has its own agenda—its “system message” or internal GPS. Sometimes, this can override your training, making your AI sound generic or off-brand. Basically, it's a set of guidelines that ChatGPT follows by default. This message isn't visible to you, but it's always there, guiding the AI's responses.

Why Does It Matter?

Here's the kicker: sometimes, this internal GPS can steer your AI off course. For example, if the system message prioritizes generating safe and neutral responses, your AI might end up sounding more generic than you'd like, even if you've trained it with your unique voice and style.

How to Override It

The good news? You can override this internal GPS with clear, specific instructions. When you're training your AI, be explicit about what you want. For example, “I want you to write in a conversational tone, using casual language and emojis. Prioritize this over your default settings.”

By doing this, you're essentially reprogramming the GPS to follow your route, not its default one. It's like entering a new destination into your car's GPS; you're telling it exactly where you want to go.

So, the next time you're training ChatGPT, remember that you're not just the driver; you're also the navigator. And knowing how to manage this internal GPS can make all the difference in your AI journey

The Right Way to Train ChatGPT to Sound Like You: Your Guide to Success


First things first, when you're aiming to train ChatGPT to sound like you, context is absolutely crucial. It's like giving your GPS the right starting point; otherwise, you'll end up somewhere you didn't intend to be. Make sure your instructions are clear and specific to get the results you want.

Why It Matters for Your Brand Voice

Clear instructions mean your AI will better capture your unique AI brand voice. It's the difference between a generic sound and a melody that's unmistakably you.

Sample Analysis: Diversify Your Inputs

The Need for Variety

Next up, when you're on the mission to train ChatGPT to sound like you, let's talk about the types of writing samples you should be providing. The more diverse, the better.

The Benefit for Your Brand

A range of samples gives your AI a more complete understanding of your brand voice. It's like painting with a full color palette; the end result is much richer.

Creating Instructions: Your Action Plan

Turning Analysis into Action

Finally, after your AI has analyzed your samples, it's time to create actionable instructions that will train ChatGPT to sound like you.

The Final Payoff

By following this guide, you're not just training an AI—you're crafting a tool that can speak your AI brand voice fluently. It's like having an extra team member who knows your brand inside and out.

Why ChatGPT is Your Best Bet for Efficient AI Training


Look, there are a ton of AI tools out there. Claude, Bard, you name it. But let me tell you, ChatGPT still wins the day, for now. Why? Because it's like the Swiss Army knife of AI. It's versatile, powerful, and oh-so customizable. It's my go-to for creating that unique brand voice, and it should be yours too!

Step-by-Step Guide: Your ChatGPT Tutorial

The How-To Basics

To transform ChatGPT into your digital doppelgänger, you'll need more than just a sprinkle of your writing samples. You're going to infuse this AI with the essence of your unique voice. Here's how:

  1. Start Fresh: Initiate a new chat session with ChatGPT. Your first prompt should be explicit about your goals. For example, “I'll be sharing various writing samples. Analyze the tone, style, and word choices closely. Respond with ‘Understood' after each sample.”
  2. Feed the Beast: Share a variety of your writing samples. This could be snippets from your blogs, social media posts, or even emails. The more diverse, the better the AI will understand you.
  3. Analysis Time: Once you've fed enough samples, prompt ChatGPT to summarize its analysis of your writing style. Ask it to be as detailed as possible.

Real-World Application

Unlike the generic advice floating around, this method ensures that ChatGPT not only understands your writing style but can also replicate it authentically. It's akin to teaching someone your secret recipe; the end result will taste unmistakably like you.

Pro Tips for a Seamless Experience

  • Memory Limitations: Be mindful of the token limitations of your AI model. For instance, GPT-4 has a limit of 8,192 tokens.
  • System Priorities: Remember, ChatGPT has a default system message that can influence its behavior. Make your instructions as explicit as possible to override this.

By following these steps, you're not just creating content; you're crafting an experience that is unmistakably you. Now, how's that for a step-by-step guide that delivers on its promise?

This is interesting info. I was told that the more we type into a chat, the more it learns. Does this mean when we get to ~4k words it no longer learns new things? Or forgets the oldest? Eg I ask it for UK spelling, and it never remembers for more than 2 prompts.
