It’s a task we tend to put off – writing product descriptions can take quite some time, especially at Commins & Co where we have over 500 engagement rings to choose from! So when our CEO Áine Commins jokingly suggested we use ChatGPT to write them, my assistant and I gave each other “the look” and set about doing what the boss said.
Refining the process
Given that we have recently used AI to develop our new Education Hub on the site, saving almost €1800 and almost a week of work, Áine was willing to let us give it a go and see what we come up with. As the day has gone on, we have refined our process and while there is definitely time-saving elements to using ChatGPT, the fact is – if you are not good at writing descriptions without AI, you won’t be good at writing descriptions with AI. Sure, we could create text about a product using prompts but it tends not to give great insight about the product. We did find that the more info we gave, the better the result. Using short sentences, descriptive words and correcting it when it made mistakes all added to the quality of the product description but there was still a certain je nais se quois missing.
Perhaps won’t replace us – yet
Overall, I can see us using ChatGPT for many things and even perhaps incorporating its use into writing parts of descriptions but it cannot do it all on its own. It really is an incredible tool to use and enables great efficiency in writing text, code and summarizing content. I look forward to continuing to utilize it in the future and believe it will get better and better. Meanwhile, there are lots of interesting things we can do with it too, such as training it to write like a celebrity!
Training ChatGPT to Write Like Celebrities
Needless to say too, there were lots of ideas thrown around throughout the day but the most popular idea was to try getting ChatGPT to impersonate famous people and write in their style. Initially this didn’t work very well as it has limited knowledge about people and how they speak. However, once again, when we provided more info about the people we wanted it to speak about, it was able to write in a style that could be mistaken for the given celebrity.
My personal favourite has to be Teresa Mannion, see it below!
