You may have noticed that everyone is talking about a new AI tool called Chat GPT. Some people are thrilled and sharing a ton of tips to use Chat GPT, others are complaining that it’s a flash in the pan or that it’s lowering the standards of online content.
Wherever you stand on the subject of using Chat GPT, there is no question that it is an incredibly useful and very clever tool. But what can you use Chat GPT for?
Well… I did a few things to answer this question for you.
- I asked ChatGPT what you can use it for (of course)
- I scoured Linkedin for some of the best tips about how to use ChatGPT, and…
- I played with it myself to work out some of the best applications for this new AI tool.
So what did I find out?
Before we get stuck in, let’s answer one very important question.
What is ChatGPT?
ChatGPT is a tool developed to answer questions and generate content using artificial intelligence (AI). Developed by Open AI, the aim of the tool is to behave in a conversational way and use machine learning to help users online.
In some ways it might be seen as a question and answer tool. Ask ChatGPT a question and it will provide an answer to the best of its abilities.
But it can also perform more technical tasks such as generating code, writing outlines and plans for business ideas or blogs, or even carrying out complex computations and calculations. And in an incredibly useful turn up, it can be used to write blog posts, emails or headlines.
Sounds amazing, right?
So, whats the problem?
What are the problems with ChatGPT?
As amazing as ChatGPT sounds, it does have a few shortcomings. One of these is that it is only trained on data up until 2021, so it can’t provide up to date information on some subjects.
It can also be inaccurate or incorrect with some information, so some care does need to be taken for those queries that might rely on specialist information.
Some people are also complaining that it depersonalises content, and makes everything more generic. By using AI tools to write, surely all our content is going to be homogenised and boring?
Well… This is where the defenders of ChatGPT enter the fray.
What are the benefits of ChatGPT?
ChatGPT is excellent at several things. Firstly, it can carry out a conversation and improve on initial suggestions. Take a look at this simple example below….
I asked it to suggest a headline, which it did. I then asked it to suggest some more ideas. Did any of them make the cut?
This is obviously very basic use of the powerful features available here. But you get the idea.
However the tool can also do things like:
- Give detailed plans for both content creation or real life tasks (for example setting up a business or losing weight)
- Generate prose such as poems, music lyrics, raps, limericks or haikus
- Improve computer code and remove errors
- Translating between languages
Yes, lots of very cool and useful applications. But what can YOU use ChatGPT for?

Yes, for real. You can ask ChatGPT to get in character as a travel guide based in, let’s say Barcelona. Then ask it to put together a travel guide for however long you want to be there for. Check out this example.
Who needs a travel guide, right?
