How to Be Successful At Marketing (According to a Chatbot)

Like millions of people around the globe, I’ve been playing with ChatGPT like mad in recent months. It helps me manage the firehose of thought that is constantly blasting from my brain. It is also a super-handy tool to use for advice, marketing plans, recipes, writing prompts, email drafts… there are sOoOoOo many things that A.I. can do.

It’s slight insane, actually, all the stuff it’s able to do.

I was curious about what advice it had about ganging a large social media following and using that as leverage for marketing success. The advice was fairly standard, boilerplate stuff (you kinda have to ask ChatGPT to be different), but it’s still useful… as is knowing what kind of stuff it’ll spit out.

So, without further delay… Here’s how ChatGPT would start a successful marketing business:

I started by asking:

give me a step-by-step plan to gain a large following on twitter, TikTok, and instagram and turn that into a successful marketing business. please include the type of subject-matter that would be the most likely to succeed taking into account the current economic times.

And it replied with all of the following:

I can provide you with a step-by-step plan to grow your social media following and turn it into a successful marketing business using ethical and innovative methods.

Step 1: Choose a Niche

To be successful on social media, you need to choose a specific niche that interests you and has the potential to attract a large audience. In current economic times, niches related to finance, personal development, and entertainment are likely to succeed.

Step 2: Develop a Content Strategy

Once you have chosen your niche, you need to develop a content strategy that is engaging and relevant to your target audience. This could include posting informative articles, sharing engaging images, and creating videos that your audience will find interesting.

Step 3: Build Your Following

To build your following, you need to be active and engage with your target audience. This could include following relevant people in your niche, commenting on their posts, and participating in relevant discussions. You can also use hashtags to increase the visibility of your posts and reach a larger audience.

Step 4: Monetize Your Following

Once you have built a large following, you can monetize it by partnering with brands and businesses to promote their products or services to your audience. You can also sell your own products or services related to your niche or become an affiliate marketer and earn commission by promoting other people’s products.

Step 5: Track and Optimize

To be successful in social media marketing, it’s important to track your results and optimize your strategy based on what works best. You can use social media analytics tools to track your engagement and adjust your content and posting frequency to maximize your reach and engagement.
