How to integrate AI into your marketing workflow

Prompts are just one part of using AI. You should also consider how you can integrate AI into your existing workflow so you can make the most of the responses.

Use the website for ChatGPT, Claude or Gemini

You can use ChatGPT, Claude or Gemini directly through their websites. You’ll typically have to create an account and you’ll get instant access to a free version of one of their LLMs, but if you want a more advanced LLM, you’ll have to pay. For example, right now OpenAI offers GPT3.5 for free, but you can pay to upgrade to GPT4.

We’ve found this option is best for individuals who only need to use one platform and only need to use it by themselves.

If that’s you, then you can also use PromptDrive.ai as your prompt management tool. We have an unlimited free plan for individual users and a free chrome extension that will allow you to access your entire prompt library without the need to switch between tabs.

But if you want to save money, use different LLMs and collaborate on prompts and chat responses, then you might benefit from using PromptDrive.

Use PromptDrive.ai

PromptDrive.ai is a platform designed specifically for teams to collaborate on ChatGPT, Claude and Gemini prompts and workflows. It’s particularly useful for businesses or organizations where multiple team members need to work together on projects involving one or more LLM’s.

An additional benefit is that you’ll be able to take advantage of AI for a fraction of the cost of using their native websites. You do need to add your own API keys, the process to get one is straightforward and we have guides to help you get started.

Final word

In conclusion, AI tools like ChatGPT, Claude, and Gemini have the potential to improve the way you approach SEO and content creation. By using these advanced language models, you can generate high-quality content ideas, outlines, and even full drafts in a matter of minutes. However, it’s crucial to remember that AI is not a replacement for your professional expertise and unique insights. While these tools can help you work more efficiently and effectively, they cannot replace the value that you bring to the table as an SEO professional.

Keep in mind that these prompts are just the starting point. To get the most relevant and impactful responses from different LLMs like ChatGPT, Claude, and Gemini, you’ll need to adapt and customize these prompts based on your specific needs and goals. Additionally, always review and refine the AI-generated content, adding your own information, perspective, and voice to ensure that it aligns with your brand and resonates with your target audience.
