35 ChatGPT Prompts to Help with Marketing Your Startup


In the fast-moving digital age of today, startups need more than just a great product; they require innovative marketing strategies. But how can artificial intelligence change the way startups promote themselves, especially with tools like ChatGPT?

How can ChatGPT transform your startup’s marketing approach?

What unique marketing advantages do AI-generated prompts offer?

Are you making the most of ChatGPT’s potential?

The following ChatGPT prompts will provide numerous ideas for using ChatGPT in your marketing efforts.

But first, here’s what NOT to use ChatGPT for:

  • Creating content from scratch (content should rely on your or your team’s expertise and experience in the specific niche and target audience)
  • Conducting keyword research (specialized keyword research tools should be used for this purpose)

With this in mind, let’s explore how to use ChatGPT to enhance the creativity and effectiveness of your marketing campaign.

Train ChatGPT to Suit Your Business Better

ChatGPT responds well to instructions in your prompt, but its responses may be very generic unless you provide extensive instructions or additional guidance within the same conversation.

There are two ways to train ChatGPT to deliver improved and more personalized responses aligned with your objectives, profession, or business:

1. Provide “Custom Instructions” (Premium Only)

Custom instructions compel ChatGPT to tailor its responses to your business goals, background, or industry. Note that custom instructions are currently exclusively available to paying users.

You can input your instructions such as:

  • Details about your business and product, highlighting its selling points, use cases, differentiation from alternative products, and how it should be positioned in relevant content. Include your targeted keywords here.
  • Specification of the style and tone for responses (e.g., professional, casual, neutral, opinionated), as well as instructions regarding the content each article should contain, etc.

Once saved, ChatGPT will incorporate these custom instructions into every response by default, as soon as you create a new conversation. Any edits to your custom instructions will necessitate the creation of a new ChatGPT thread for their implementation.

2. Create a Dedicated Chat Thread With Your Product or Business Details

If you haven’t upgraded your ChatGPT account, you can still train it by maintaining a dedicated chat session with your startup or product details. Keep in mind that ChatGPT is unable to reference information across different threads, so confine your discussions within a single thread.

ChatGPT features the “Chat history” setting, set to “On” by default, which is purported to aid in its training process:

You can bookmark the specific chat used for training your ChatGPT. To obtain a direct link to any chat,

  • Access the “Share” option
  • Click the “Copy link” button, open a new browser tab using that link, and bookmark it

Now that ChatGPT possesses a greater understanding of your startup and products, it’s time to employ it for various marketing tasks.
