What is AI?

AI stands for artificial intelligence. There are so many different ways that artificial intelligence already works for us in our lives already, so it is not that new. However, getting to use ChatGPT in business is a new tool, but one that you can easily learn.

Whatever you want to train it to be, it can be that for you, so it’s a tool. It’s a predicative language model that can give you really helpful information based on the topic that you’re entering into the website.

Kym Tolson

There are loads of AI programs, and ChatGPT is just one of them.

Is it plagiarism?

ChatGPT is based on a predictive language model. It cannot replace your professional judgment or workplace personality.

The stuff that [ChatGPT] is spitting out is really helpful and suggestive [because] it can give you ideas that you haven’t thought of before, but almost always you take that content and put it in a Google Doc … and make it your own voice, especially with the clinical piece.

Kym Tolson

It is very difficult to plagiarize with ChatGPT, but if you want to make sure to avoid it then you need to read over and change what it gives you into your own words.

Don’t use ChatGPT to replace your job – use it to give you ideas and a fresh perspective and then put it in your own words.

Additionally, if you are using ChatGPT to write or create content for blog posts, you can put a little disclaimer at the end of the blog to let people know and to make sure that you are on the right side of the legal (and moral) code.

How AI can help you with your systems

You can use a prompt with ChatGPT like:

  • “Help me analyze the systems within my private practice that are causing me to have a low conversion rate”: the AI system will either ask you for more information if it needs it, or will evaluate what you give it.
  • “I want to tell you about my process and scheduling procedure and tell me where I can improve to convert more”: the AI system needs as much information as you can give it to give you the best result, and then ask it to point out the bottle-necks and ways to improve.

It will analyze your systems for you and give you predictive suggestions that could improve your outcomes.

Kym Tolson

The more specific you are and the more questions you ask ChatGPT the more you can burrow into and discover what it is that you are looking for.

Create content for a year!

You can use ChatGPT to help you with social media posts, content, blogs, and articles – anything! Give the system one long article that you have written about your niche, and ask ChatGPT to:

  • Break it down into 12 small blogs
  • Give you short ideas for Instagram posts
  • Rewrite it for you into a script that you can record and post as a podcast or YouTube video
  • Give you monthly topics to discuss around the niche

And many more!

Repurpose, redistribute, work smarter [and] not harder with this type of stuff.
