Unlock your growth: using ChatGPT to shape customer personas

Feeling lost about who your customers really are?

We’ve all been there…

And let’s face it, launching campaigns without a clear idea of who your customers are is a recipe for disaster.

But what if there was a way to make sense of your existing customer data?

Imagine a future where you understand your customers as well as you understand yourself.

In this article, you’ll get a step-by-step on how to convert your existing customer data into detailed personas so that chatGPT can turbocharge your growth.

Step #1: Download the WebPilot plugin

For this task, you'll need an internet connection to use ChatGPT. You'll want to get the WebPilot plugin. Why? Because it's more accurate than Bing or general web search.

You can easily find and install it from the plugin store on ChatGPT.

Once you've downloaded it, the next step is to simply activate it with GPT-4 and you're all set.

Step #2: Craft the ideal prompt

Each time you use ChatGPT, you need a prompt that's clear and specific.

This time the goal of the prompt is to be able to have chatGPT understand who are your customers.

To make that happen, we've put together an ideal prompt for you. All you need is a list of potential companies you're aiming for and an outline of your target audience.
