How to use ChatGPT to write video ad scripts for TikTok

Since ChatGPT (Generative Pre-Trained Transformer 3) was launched by OpenAI in November 2022, the world has seen an abundance of use cases ranging from writing texts to explaining complex notions and solving impressive tasks easily. More and more use cases transcend, and marketing is probably one of the most impacted industries. From copywriting to blog posts and ad development, ChatGPT can streamline marketing activities and improve these in a fraction of the time humans would need. 

In this article, we explore how to use ChatGPT to write TikTok video ad scripts for your DTC brand and offer a step-by-step guide to make the most of the AI-based chatbot.

What is ChatGPT?  

ChatGPT was built by OpenAI and is using the GPT-3.5 language model and has been trained with both supervised and reinforcement learning techniques for enhanced conversation abilities. It was designed to provide information and answer questions through a conversational interface using AI and machine learning techniques. ChatGPT was trained on large datasets of text from the web and is meant to be user-friendly. 
As it was shown, the system is able to understand follow-up questions, admit when it is mistaken, challenge incorrect premises, and reject inappropriate requests. Even so, it comes with some limitations, especially regarding real-time data, as the data it was trained with only goes up to 2021.

Also, in some instances, it lacks nuances and can provide wrong but confident answers, such as factual information like naming the second-highest peak in Europe, Mount Blanc, when in fact, Mount Shkhara is higher at 5,193. This shows how ChatGPT does not recognize the difference between political and geographical Europe. Yet. Thus, relying only on the information provided by ChatGPT could lead to wrongful outcomes. But today, ChatGPT can be a real game-changer in other areas, such as marketing and idea-generating. 

Benefits of using ChatGPT 

Reaching 1 million users in just five days, ChatGPT has seen wide adoption, while 23% of its users are US-based. ChatGPT can bring a vast array of benefits and can visibly streamline your marketing efforts. If used wisely and trained accordingly to the desired outcomes, ChatGPT is able to

  • generate new, fresh ideas, and find unexplored angles.
  • develop texts faster and more comprehensively than most humans 
  • explain complex concepts 
  • summarize lengthy texts
  • simplify complicated texts

But, probably the most underrated benefit of using ChatGPT in marketing is that it can follow up on previous tasks and develop these further to create compelling content ideas and generate fresh approaches to known drawbacks.
