Get ChatGPT To Write Like You or Your Brand
By creating your own custom GPT, you can significantly increase the odds that you’ll get results that actually sound like how you write.
HINT: You’ll need GPT4 access to create a custom GPT.
In case you’re unfamiliar with custom GPTs, unlike custom instructions (which you’d have to change each time you want outputs in a different style), you can create GPTs packed with specific context and instructions — which is super helpful if you don’t always want ChatGPT outputs in one style, such as if you:
Use Cases for this GPT
Writing blogs & articles, emails, social media content, customer service responses, press releases, & legal documentation + personal assistants writing in their boss’ voice or writing anything with specific accessibility needs
1. Collect & Save Writing Samples
Gather a comprehensive, varied selection of you or your brand’s writings (e.g. articles, emails, etc.) where your unique style and tone is evident. Save them all as plain text files or in a single CSV file.
2. Create Your Own Custom GPT
Click ‘Explore GPTs’
Explain what your GPT is about, e.g.: “A copywriter & content writer that generates outputs in my brand’s voice, tone, style, & structure”
Name it & decide on an image (You can ask it for iterations, e.g.: “Add more whimsy” or to include certain words)
Tell it more about what you’re looking for, e.g.:
Use this voice: [description]
Use this tone: [description]
Use this style: [description]
Your preferred greetings & sign-offs
Any topics, languages, or phrases to avoid using
The audience you want it to write for
The role you want it to play
Themes, topics, or perspectives that align with your brand that you want emphasized
Cultural sensitivity information it should be aware of
Continue adjusting until it generates the output you’re looking for
3. Configure Your GPT
Instructions: You likely won’t need to edit this, but you can.
Conversation Starters: You can change these to outputs you’ll often seek help with, e.g. write a [blog post/email/product description/instagram caption]
Uploads: Upload the documents you prepared in Step 1. (P.S. Even if you already told it your voice, tone, etc., uploading full files teaches it nuances, such as sentence complexity, word choices, how your writing adapts to different lengths or tasks, and more.)
Actions: To an add extra boost, integrate existing or custom APIs, such as APIs for content research, plagiarism check, language translation, or image sourcing.
4. Save Your New Custom GPT
When you hit ‘Save’, select who can use your GPT, including only you, anyone with the link (great for sharing it with others in your company!), or public.
🚨 VERY IMPORTANT NOTE 🚨: Do not include confidential information if you’re making your GPT public or sharing the link with anyone who shouldn’t have access to that information.
How to Access Your GPT
Click on your custom GPT in the left-hand corner above ‘Explore GPTs’ (NOTE: It won’t show up there if you haven’t saved it yet)
When in a regular chat, use the “@” symbol to call your custom GPT into the chat
🤩 Awe-Inspiring AI Use
Dan Used ChatGPT to Learn About His Grandpa’s Service In WWII
When browsing LinkedIn we found a really unique and inspiring GPT story and wanted to share…
Dan was only 6 years old when his grandpa passed, and was left some keepsakes from his service in WWII. They sat in a box for many years. But Dan recently thought to ask ChatGPT about the items to see what he might learn…
By sharing photos of the box’s contents, ChatGPT informed Dan that the:
Blue & white pin was assigned to rangers in the infantry — meaning his grandpa engaged in close contact & direct fire battles
Swatch with the sword on fire is insignia of the 45h Infantry Division, a division which saw significant combat
Black & brown swatch is a rank insignia given to Staff Sergeants. Meaning he was promoted several times.
Black oval is a German “dog tag” that belonged to a fallen soldier of the 9th battalion
After all those years, AI awareness made Dan look at that box differently one day.
The lesson for you is to work on reframing your thinking as this paradigm shift progresses. Share your new wisdom and use cases. It’s your key unlocking more possibilities for your world and your work.
