Become a ChatGPT Prompt Expert

If you’re looking to become an AI prompt expert on platforms like ChatGPT, then you’ve come to the right place. Read ahead and find out how to get the most from your prompts.

If you’ve been on the internet at all recently, you know about ChatGPT.

 ChatGPT, or Generative Pre-trained Transformer, is an AI (artificial intelligence) program launched in November 2022 by OpenAI. 

And within just a week of its launch, it crossed the 1-million-user mark, far surpassing other tech giants like Netflix, Instagram, and Facebook, which took 41, 10, and 2.5 months respectively to reach that milestone.  

It has been called the “calculator for writing,” as it is already getting rid of certain routine tasks to a degree. ChatGPT is capturing the attention and awe of users with its lightning-quick ability to produce high-quality written content. But it does have a few weaknesses. 

We’ve previously covered the potential and pitfalls of ChatGPT but let’s have a look at its limitations, too.

  • Outdated data: ChatGPT relies on its knowledge bank of data up until 2021. At this time it cannot search the internet for new information from 2022-2023, meaning its results could be outdated. 
  • No references: ChatGPT does not cite or source any references, so you will never know where it got the data, resources, or information it delivers. 

Becoming an AI Prompt Expert  

With these limitations in mind, legal professionals can still benefit from using ChatGPT. Here are some tips that’ll help you become an AI prompt expert:

Finish a Sentence 

You can prompt it to finish a sentence for you. For example:

  1. “A legal business strategy is important because” 
  2. After this, you can ask for a counterargument. Like, “On the other hand,” 

Play a Specific Role 

To give it better context, you can ask the bot to play a role. For example:

“You are a dog bite lawyer. Explain…..

  1. “I want you to act as….”
  2. “Pretend you are ….”
  3. “You are capable of….”

Summarize and Simplify 

Law firms deal with what feels like a mountain of paperwork and ChatGPT can help with that, too. 

  1. Type “tl;dr” (“too long, didn’t read”) at the end of a passage; it will summarize it for you. 
  2. Explain (complex concept/ term/ idea) but do it like ________. For example, “Explain billable hours but do it like Yoda from Star Wars.” This may sound like a complete joke, but….it works!

Do Keyword Research Like a Pro! 

If you need to find related terms you can do so like this: 

  1. Generate X (10?) keywords for “Accident” 
  2. Generate X (10?) long-tail keywords for “Accident” 
  3. Find keyword ideas for the following text: (Paste Text Here)
  4. Find *LSI keywords for…. 
    • Latent Semantic Indexing: words related to the main keyword. 

Do Content and Topic Research 

If you’d like to find topics and FAQs related to a keyword/topic, you can also do that. For example:

  1. “Generate a list of questions on….(dog bite accidents)”

Tabular Forms and Tables 

  1. Type “Create a tabular form with the following…”. For example: “Create a tabular form with the following legal jargon: 
    • Chapter 11
    • Chapter 13 
    • Chapter 9

  2. For a table,e.g. on keyword and search intent,you can specify the following: “Classify the following keywords based on search intent in a table with the first column for keyword and the second for search intent: Add Keywords.” Here’s an example:
