Ecommerce Made Easy with ChatGPT: 5 Prompts You Can't Afford to Miss

Look no further than AI-powered tools like ChatGPT to streamline your business strategy. From identifying competitors and analyzing their products to finding influencers and creating engaging social media posts, AI can do it all… for free!  

In this blog post, we'll explore how AI can help you with competitive analysis, proofreading or editing, discovering pain points, connecting with influencers, and getting out of a social media slump. Get ready to take your business to the next level with the power of AI.

Competitive Analysis

Avoid spending hours of research to figure out what your competitors are doing by letting AI do the work for you. First, ask ChatGPT to provide you with a list of competitors in your industry (even within a certain geographic location, if that’s important to you). From there, you can find out why customers like or dislike a brand or a specific product. AI can also help you analyze pricing structures and strategies to ensure you’re setting yours competitively.

Prompt: Identify a list of competitors in [your industry] and analyze their products, pricing, and unique selling points of each.

Proofreading or Editing

While grammar correcting tools like autocorrect are dependable for basic editing, AI goes the extra mile by transforming your words to have an entirely new tone and purpose. Say you have a return policy that lacks personality. You can use AI to breathe new life into that and other typically boring pieces of content on your site. If writing isn’t your strong suit, you can start with a few key points and let AI edit it to your heart’s desire.  

Prompt: Take the following return policy and rewrite it to be more relaxed and friendly.

Discover Pain Points

Reviews are an essential part of any good ecommerce strategy. Social proof that your products are worth the hype can outweigh even the most compelling product descriptions. If your store has garnered a significant number of reviews, you can use AI to track down the exact pain points your product or service alleviates. Take this information and infuse it into your website, product descriptions, social copy, email content, and more.  

Prompt: Identify customer pain points by analyzing recent online reviews of [your business URL or product/service]

Connect with Influencers

Use AI to find influencers in your industry and narrow them down  based on criteria like engagement rate, followers, and relevance to your brand. When you’re ready to go all in, request collaborations using this list of free influencer marketing tools. These partnerships have been proven to reach far more potential customers than traditional marketing channels alone. When you’ve got your collaboration in place, be sure to  monitor and measure the results of your campaigns and optimize them for better results.

Prompt: Identify influencers in [your industry] and suggest ideas for collaboration.

Get Out of a Social Media Slump

According to SocialPilot, more than 160 million businesses use Facebook to interact with their customers. To stand out of the hundreds of social media posts your customers are seeing everyday is no small feat. Craft a basic social media post and let AI do the rest. You’d be surprised how many new ideas it can suggest – some you may have not thought of before.

Prompt: Create an engaging post around the launch of my new product [describe product or include URL] geared towards [your target audience]


It's important to remember that AI is a powerful tool, but it's only as good as the input you provide it. So, if you want to get the most accurate results, try to be as specific as possible with your prompts. Don't be afraid to regenerate results to find the best fit for your needs! Keep in mind that AI tools are constantly evolving, so you might see different results across different platforms.
