We’ve spent hours creating, testing, and developing prompts so that you don’t have to.

We’ve even provided over 250 prompts you can copy and paste into ChatGPT to start maximizing your use of the tool quickly. 

What Is ChatGPT & How Does It Work?

ChatGPT is a large language model-based chatbot. ChatGPT is an advanced artificial intelligence (AI) program designed to understand and respond to human language. The chatbot uses natural language processing (NLP) to interpret words and sentences and understand the context between words and sentences just like humans. ChatGPT is considered a large language chatbot because it’s trained on a very large dataset. The AI has digested a vast number of websites, articles, books, and other texts to obtain knowledge on a wide variety of subjects. 

ChatGPT was created by OpenAI, which is a company focused on researching and building generative models that align with human values. ChatGPT was the second AI project released to the public from OpenAI after Dall-E. It was released in November of 2022 and quickly became a viral sensation. ChatGPT has since been adopted by Bing to power Bing’s new chatbot and has been used by some of the world’s largest brands (including Coca-Cola) to produce marketing campaigns. 

ChatGPT wasn’t initially built with any disruptive technology. GPT 3 had been available to the public since 2020 and there were similar AI tools like Jasper that were released prior to ChatGPT. However, the apps simple design and conversational nature combined with its free price tier made it easy to use, which helped to rapidly increase adoption. 

The app is so simple that there are really only two main functions available to users. Users can create new chats and send messages that the AI can respond to. When users type and send a message in the chat, the chatbot will analyze the message and craft an appropriate response. 

ChatGPT 2021 Database

It’s important to be aware that ChatGPT is currently trained on a dataset that ended in 2021. Its ability to discuss current events and access recent data is limited. It’s better to use ChatGPT for information, knowledge, and problems that are timeless as opposed to using ChatGPT to assess current trends and world developments. 

ChatGPT 3.5 Vs ChatGPT 4

There are two different versions of the GPT (Generative Pre-Trained Transformer) model that ChatGPT uses: 3.5 and 4. If you’re using the free tier of the ChatGPT software, then you’ll be using version 3.5. Version 4 is only available to subscribers of ChatGPT Plus. You can actually see a toggle between 3.5 and 4 in the free tier with a locked icon for 4. 

ChatGPT 4

As an updated version of the GPT model, ChatGPT 4 is supposed to be more intelligent, more accurate, and more capable of handling longer prompts and conversations. According to OpenAI, ChatGPT 4 is 10 times more advanced than 3.5 and is able to produce responses that are 40% more accurate than 3.5. GPT 4 is better at recognizing user emotions through text like sadness and frustration. It’s also able to better synthesize information from multiple sources with reduced inappropriate or biased responses. Currently, GPT Plus subscribers are also the only ones that get access to ChatGPT plugins, but this may change in the future.

Studies examining the two different versions of the software have yielded mixed results. One study conducted by Standford University found that ChatGPT 4 has gotten worse at solving basic math problems since release while ChatGPT 3.5 has gotten better. When asked to correctly identify a prime number, ChatGPT 4 used to be able to do so with 97.6% accuracy upon release. Three months later, the software identified prime numbers with an accuracy rate of 2.4%. On the other hand, 3.5 increased its accuracy rate from 7.4% to 86.8% in the same time period.

If you’re just getting started with ChatGPT, it makes sense to test out the free version first with 3.5, especially since studies appear to indicate that 3.5 is getting smarter with time. If you eventually need access to longer responses and plugins to improve your workflow, you can then subscribe to ChatGPT Plus with GPT 4. 

How To Use ChatGPT

Using ChatGPT is very intuitive, which has enabled the software to go viral and take the world by storm. You only need two things to use ChatGPT: a web browser, and an OpenAI account. To use ChatGPT, you first need to visit the ChatGPT login page to create an account. When you click the “sign up” button, you’ll be asked for your email address. You also have the ability to automatically create an account via the APIs for Google, Microsoft, or Apple if you have accounts with those brands. 

create account

Once you create your account, you’ll be taken to the app. The layout for the app is very simple. Any past chats will be logged in the dark grey sidebar to the left. The rest of the screen is dedicated to your current chat. You’ll see a “send message” input box at the bottom of the screen where you’ll input your messages to interact with the AI. 

ChatGPT runs on a prompt-based system. You enter a prompt into the message input box and ChatGPT will analyze your prompt and respond accordingly. We’ll discuss prompts in greater detail further down in the guide. When ChatGPT responds to your prompt, you’ll be able to engage in a two-way conversation and respond to anything ChatGPT sends you to refine answers, get clarification, or seek additional information. ChatGPT can retain information from past replies to use in future responses during the chat, but there is a limit to how much the software can retain. For GPT 3.5, the limit is 8,000 words. For GPT 4, the limit is greatly increased to 64,000 words. After the limit is hit, ChatGPT will start to lose track of the conversation and forget things previously mentioned in the chat. 

Responses from ChatGPT do take previous messages from the chat into account. Keep this in mind as you prompt ChatGPT. There are times when it’s better to start a new chat instead of continuing an existing chat to keep ChatGPT from mixing up your current prompt with a previous prompt in the chat. 

ChatGPT is limited to text-based responses, but there are an unlimited number of possible ways you could use the AI app. ChatGPT excels at answering questions, assisting with writing, helping to facilitate learning and research, writing code, translating content into other languages, improving productivity, providing fun text-based games, and more. 

There are 60 million visits to the ChatGPT app each day. When usage is high, it’s possible for responses to be slow. When the app first launched, it was common for users to be locked out of the app until usage decreased enough to support additional users. It’s now much less common for users to be locked out of ChatGPT due to high usage. 

How To Use ChatGPT Plugins

ChatGPT supports plugins that can be used to add additional functionality to the chatbot. Plugins are currently only available to ChatGPT Plus subscribers. The first plugins for ChatCPT included: 

  • Expedia – Have ChatGPT create a travel itinerary that can be booked through Expedia automatically. 
  • FiscalNote – Give ChatGPT access to real-time datasets for political, legal, and regulatory data. 
  • Instacart – Have ChatGPT create a recipe or grocery list and automatically use InstaCart to order everything you need.
  • Kayak – Give ChatGPT access to Kayak to help you plan flights, stays, and car rentals within your budget. 
  • Klarna Shopping – Have ChatGPT assist you in shopping and comparing prices across thousands of different shops. 
  • Milo Family AI – Gives parents the ability to ask Milo what is magic about any given day. 
  • OpenTable – Allow ChatGPT to provide restaurant recommendations and a direct link to book a reservation. 
  • Shop – Give ChatGPT access to search millions of products from some of the largest brands in the world. 
  • Speak – Turn ChatGPT into an AI-powered language tutor. 
  • Wolfram – Access real-time math and computational data through Wolfram. 
  • Zapier – Integrate ChatGPT with over 5,000 other apps using Zapier. 

There are already over 500 plugins for ChatGPT and new plugins continue to be added each month. To use plugins, you’ll need to navigate to the plugin store within ChatGPT and install the plugins you want to integrate with your chatbot. Once plugins are installed they will be automatically used when applicable. You don’t have to select plugins in a chat to have ChatGPT use them. 

How To Use ChatGPT’s API

ChatGPT offers an API that anyone can use to add AI features to any website or app. The company has provided API documentation that can be used to set up the API. This is more of an advanced feature and it will require some coding knowledge. 


If you’re interested in setting up an API, make sure you use OpenAI’s documentation as opposed to asking ChatGPT for help. The API was released after 2021, so ChatGPT has no knowledge of the API and can’t help troubleshoot implementation. 

The Basic Structure Of A ChatGPT Prompt

As previously mentioned, ChatGPT runs on prompts. When you provide a prompt, ChatGPT will respond to it. A “prompt” is just a more technical way of saying that you’re asking the chatbot to answer a question or perform a task. 

Your prompts are going to vary in structure depending on what you’d like the chatbot to do. Generally speaking, most prompts will follow the common structure below.

How To Improve Results From ChatGPT

Finding that you’re getting lackluster results from ChatGPT? There are a few things you can do to receive better responses from the AI. Below are the three tricks we’ve discovered in our tests that help improve ChatGPT’s performance. 

Use Extensions To Save Time

While plugins are limited to Plus subscribers, you can utilize Chrome Extensions to improve the performance of ChatGPT on the free tier. AIPRM is a very popular Chrome Extension that gives users access to thousands of pre-engineered prompts. You don’t have to reinvent the wheel coming up with your own prompts when you can use proven prompts to improve performance. 

Create A New Chat For New Subjects

As previously mentioned, ChatGPT’s responses are heavily influenced by past conversations in the chat. If you ask it to write multiple pieces of content in one chat, you’ll find that any content produced will be very similar to the first piece of content produced in the chat. This can be good if you need several things written in a uniform style. However, the information may not be in the right format or it may not be correct if you’re switching between fiction and non-fiction or drastically different subjects. It’s better to start a new chat for new tasks and subjects to keep the AI focused on the task at hand without bias from any past conversations. 

ChatGPT questions

Allow ChatGPT To Ask You Questions

You can improve your prompts by treating ChatGPT like a human employee. When you give an employee a task, it’s common to ask your employee if they have any questions before they get started. You can do the same for ChatGPT to find areas of your prompt that have gaps or missing information. In the example above, ChatGPT is going to be able to write a better marketing email if it knows the business name, target audience, and additional details on the promotion. We didn’t specify any of those details in our initial prompt, but in asking ChatGPT if it had any questions, we receive a reminder to provide those details to improve the email created. Allowing ChatGPT to ask you questions can be a very easy way to receive better results with the AI software.
