Jen Vazquez 24:31
I’m gonna pay right like okay, and and I do want to point out before we get to autumn, thank you for coming up here. And if you guys have tried it out, come on up as well. We would love to get a conversation going. But so I always say garbage in garbage out, right? Like we have to put our personal spin on things when we ask it questions to make sure that we’re getting our personal voice back and it There has been a concern with Google that Google is so smart that it can see when you’re using January last year, it’s insane. So I apologize anyway. It, it has it, it can see a eye. And so what I have always done like when I’ve used Jasper, det AI and other AI type things, is I make sure to include my brand voice and how.
January coming back. Home, we’re gonna have to wait until Jen can come out. There she is.
Jen Vazquez 26:01
Hi, I’m so so sorry. Anyway, I always put in my brand voice. So I’ll take whatever paragraph I get. And I make sure to change a few words into how I speak. Like I don’t say, I want to, I always say I want to, like that’s just part of my brand voice and the way that I speak. And it is the way that we will sort of not potentially get deemed by Google and doing these things. But even still, I’m gonna go out on the ledge here and be very controversial. I have zero time running two businesses. And I feel like getting content out is almost more important than have it be perfect and get the biggest reach possible. I’ll take whatever reach I can get with getting this help with valuable advice. I do always change the summary and things like that. And the words like I said, because I think it’s important that things are me. But and and has I’ve been putting this content information into the chat. I have been getting back more things with my type of words. Have you noticed that Shawn?
I’m sorry. Yes, that’s I’ve seen the same thing happened to me. It’s it’s, it’s like it, even though it doesn’t hold that it’s almost like the more you engage with it, the more it kind of understand what your style is in speaking.
Jen Vazquez 27:36
It’s so It’s so crazy. All right, thank you so much help what you can stay here, stay up here and still have conversation. But I do want to get back to autumn just in fairness to autumn, come, come on up autumn come off of mute.
Autumn Tall 27:51
Um, I literally, I literally signed up, like when this room started. And I am astonished at
Jen Vazquez 28:01
I cried I literally
the amount of money that I have spent on blog posts, because I just frankly, don’t have the flippin time. blog posts and even like social media I that I’ve spent so much money on just even like social media, like someone to write my, you know, captions and all of that just because I literally don’t have the time like between client work and meetings and all that. So to have this and like, I don’t understand that it’s free. I’m like, I just I’m like blown away.
Jen Vazquez 28:42
Yeah, I am. I know, because it is an open source. So I believe that it’ll be free for a little bit. I don’t know how long nobody really has guesses. But it is built on open AI, which says to me that somebody will probably want to come out and put something that’s, that’s free, and it is free right now. And we should use it while we can. The other thing is I’ve had a lot of Pinterest experts and social media managers who are, frankly, very concerned about their business going downhill. But what I will say as a Pinterest manager is that I don’t I don’t have that problem. Because even if we can get all of this great rich writing, somebody still has to take the time to go on and post it and interact with the post. So I feel like it’s it’s not going to replace a manager per se. So for anyone who’s listening to this now or later, I don’t think it’s going to like replace jobs per se and let’s be honest, Shawn, you and I’ve spent a quite large amount of time I’m getting in and feeding it the information that we that we want to get out of it. And I don’t know, frankly, if everyone would be much time. But you know, it is it is insanely good. It has saved me to date about 25 hours. What do you think, Shawn, that it saved you over the last week or so
to? Jim, I am not I have been a strict and disciplined with it up until this point. So I can’t look at it from that. Like from a time saving standpoint, what I will say is I’ve been able to create and schedule out my social media weeks in advance in a way that I never have been able to before. And what you said is so true. Because once you get that copy, okay, well, you still have to go create, you still have to schedule out this Yeah, Pinterest this for Instagram this for tick tock. So there’s still a time spent that you could offload to a Pinterest manager or social media consultant or whatever. So it’s not like the be all end all of like taking away jobs. It’s just it’s, it’s a leveling of the playing field, in my opinion, to get people to take their content strategy and their marketing more serious, especially newer or smaller companies that might not have the resources to invest in a team. And I think that’s important. I think people who go after clients from the manager standpoint, now can really level up their own offering, yes, and get their ideal clients in the mix. So I’m, I’m less scared of like, Oh, they’re coming after jobs with a tool like this.
Jen Vazquez 31:51
Yeah. And because AI is, can bring up fear, from a lot of people from a lot of different things, right, taking over losing jobs, there’s always a bunch of fear. And I just wanted to put it out there that it is part science and part like real life and that they’re pulling from data that’s been written and stuff. But but it’s truly what it’s, for me, what is provided is taking in the information from me, and me being very specific on my marketing and who I’m targeting, to put that information in so that I get this very rich blog or any kind of content, that it just takes away some of that brain power.
For sure, and let me really quick give like a personal story of how I use chat TPT and when I say it’s not coming for jobs, you might listen to this story and think differently, but I want to get really serious about when I think about my personal branding, I want to get serious about my personal style and how I portray myself in like a like a wardrobe and how I present etc. So I had reached out to a personal stylist that I’ve known for a couple of years and asked like if she had time to do a consultation with me or like what the process was. I waited a couple hours she didn’t respond so I thought well hell, let me see what all AI thinks about this. So I typed into the AI I was like, Can you write me a personal style brief for a 38 year old white gay male whose colors are gray, blue and are gray, navy and white and is really inspired by mirror balls. It wrote me a style brief three paragraphs and then a shopping list of the core capsule pieces I should purchase to portray that it gave me like two coats two pairs of pants and shirt and a statement piece of jewelry. I then took that list went to Amazon put it all on my prime try before you buy trial. And I’m getting it shipped to me next week so we’ll be able to test it like
Jen Vazquez 34:19
it oh my gosh, Shawn, that is in saying
I’m so excited.
Jen Vazquez 34:26
That is insane. And it gave you the shopping list which is not really what you even asked for.
But it was like and if you want to if you want to see how this all comes together. Here’s the suggested shopping list of capsule pieces that you’ll want to purchase. Oh my a classic fit. wool coat in gray. Slim Fit black leather jacket, a navy pair of chinos a grey pair of chinos. That Halleck sneakers like that’s how specific it got when I said and inspired by mirror balls and it was like, metallic sneakers will show your funky, fun style and your maj to a mirror ball. It was my
Jen Vazquez 35:17
love mirrorball. So I had just had to say that. It is crazy. And you know, now that you say that, and I’m looking at chat GPT it says things like, it’ll explain quantum computing in simple terms. Got any creative ideas for a 10 year old birthday party like you could, you can literally ask it. Anything. Now we did have a question I wanted to talk about. Amber said that chat. GPT is at capacity right now not available. Anyone know if there’s restrictions in what countries it’s allowed in? I have no idea if there’s a specific country that it’s allowed in. I’m curious if anyone else signed up and was able to get in? I know that they’re limiting the people that can I know that they are being thoughtful to make sure that that that the computing time the scaling of the systems, so because I got that message that says we’re experiencing exceptionally high demand, then maybe that’s why I don’t know, Shawn, any thoughts?
I haven’t heard like country specific, but I will say sometimes it’ll say that and you just have keep refreshing. Yeah,
Jen Vazquez 36:44
that was just gonna say it tells me it tells me it’s busy right now take a break. And then I just keep asking, and then it gives me what I want. Heather, welcome to the stage. Hi, Jen. Lovely to see you. And hi to everybody. I am
Heather Cox 36:59
obsessed with chat. And she Beachy. And yeah, keep refreshing it. I get that all the time. And I just refreshed my browser, and I’m able to use it like in a second after it refreshes. So.
Jen Vazquez 37:12
So how have you? Did you just sign up? Or have you been using it?
I’ve been using it for two to three weeks now.
Jen Vazquez 37:21
And what have things have you used it for? And what has shocked you?
Jen Vazquez 37:29
It’s not just me and Shawn. I was like, Are we like under a rock type of people? Like,
wait, I’m sorry, Heather. I was like, I was like, oh, Heather’s coming up. Oh, I hope she loves it as much as we do.
I’m upset. And yes, it can come for your job. So within my industry, I’m a web and social media designer, manager, content creator for multiple clients, restaurants, real estate, even in the wedding space. But it’s because Okay, so I had a assistant, intern, and she was writing copy for me captions, because, you know, just with one client, I have eight caption sets that I have to create each month. So that’s 30 Captions per document. So that’s 240 Captions per month, then that’s a lot just for one client. And, um, she was doing it all amazing job. But then, you know, I saw this and I was like, let me let me see what I could prompt it to do here. And it literally wrote me captions. If I just plug in specific keywords, my favorite prompt, you can even have it right you prompts to prompt it. It’s just how many you can get with it. But I think I’ve created over 500 I’ve lost count at this point 500 captions or more with chat GPT it does suck on the emoji side of things. If you ask it for emoji placement, like put it after punctuation or in between sentences. It just puts it at the beginning of the end. But it does write hashtags if you tell it to write like a write five unique social media posts about beat getting your engagement photo shoots for your photography company, including hashtag ABC photography, and include for topical hashtags, and it’ll do it. That is insane. It’s insane. So like, but you do need to proofread it because it does add some things, you know that you need to have it add a human element to it. It’s not perfect every time. And then another thing you can what I’ve used it for, it is captioned writing but it’s captioned template writing. So if I have let’s say tech two or now let’s say newsletter Wednesday, and you want to highlight one newsletter or that you have in your arsenal, every Wednesday, you can write in chat GPT create me a, or create five social media caption templates that will highlight one newsletter per week, including the title of the newsletter and excerpt and the link to the newsletter, and it’ll create templates for you. So, yes, it can create a press release template for you. These guys are insane. I’ve tried all of them and they work mad amazingly. So don’t sleep on it, because if you don’t use it, you’re just going to be replaced by it right? Well, and
Jen Vazquez 40:40
and so and I will save two we were talking about, you know, job replacement and things like that, because I’m a management person for Pinterest. And, and a lot of people are kind of fearful about that. But the fact is, is that you still have to have time to physically put it in. Even if it’s a third party platform you like, you might be able to do more with less people. But you, if you take on more clients, you still need help with all of that stuff. And a busy entrepreneur may not may still outsource, because they just don’t have time to be that human element, as you talked about. And what we talked about in terms of the human element is with regards to blogs, and Google and things like that, you have to put your brand voice in it. And part of that is training it on your ideal avatar, because then it can write you things that are very on topic, which is what Shawn and I have found. But again, you’re right, like you have to read it over and make sure it sounds like your voice. And that’s how you can avoid Google from not spreading your blog post as an example far and wide. Because it feels very AI. And this to me, a comparing it to like jasper.ai and other AI that I’ve tried, feels way more real. And way more like me as I’ve been using it than any other platform that I’ve tried. And it’s free right now. So jump on board. Any tips, Heather, any things that you think that people should know? I mean, one thing that Shawn and I said is garbage in garbage out, like you do have to tell it like the your ideal client avatar to get the most on brand type content. Any other tips that you can think of?
Yeah, so I mean, well, while writing the copy, you can actually tell it to write in a specific tone of voice. And if you train it to sound like you to take a copy that you have written prior and fed it that information, you can actually train it to have your tone of voice which is
Jen Vazquez 42:58
insane to me. And it is it’s like, like, part of it is like Shawn and I are talking to each other and going Holy shit. This is kind of scary how, like, I want to say thank you like because it’s so feels like a person. And then on the other hand, it’s saving me so much time that I’m not too scared. I mean,
so I mean, I love it. I love it so much that I I actually am stalking chat GPT on social media and I want them to, for me to be their social media manager.
Jen Vazquez 43:38
I’m not kidding. I’m doing the same thing. I don’t want to be at social media person, but I want to be in the know if something changes.
I mean, yeah, like I’m literally being like, I’ve messaged them, but like, I want to be your social media manager, please. Is there a contact information like play? Like, I’d love their social media and like they could do so much more with it. So I’m like to chat GPT like, I love you guys. Like I should literally write a proposal with Chad GPT because you can do that too. So that is
Jen Vazquez 44:07
so I didn’t even think about that. That is so smart. Do you do so you use it for social media posts and things like that anything else that you use it for?
I used it for my birthday at my daughter’s birthday party ideas for 101 Dalmatian street theme party I did that I use it a lot in my personal life. My husband likes to play with it. So he asked it to write a poem in the style of style of Edgar Allan Poe about cryptocurrency so like you did it. I wrote it a rap for my mom for her business called the fairy Potter. Like there’s so many things that you could do just just think of something I wrote an entire eight chapter ebook with this thing. It’s it’s literally just tell it to write me the time I write me a table of contents surrounding the top wedding trends for 2023. And I’ll do it. So just think about like how, like what you could use. It’s dude, like, every day, I’m thinking of something new. I use it for the mundane tasks I needed to like, right from January 1 to January 31, like Sunday, January 1 to Monday, January 2, like, I don’t want to do that. So I literally asked him to type it for me, and it types it for me. And then I can use that in my social media like planning. It can write you a content calendar for the whole entire month. Like there’s we
Jen Vazquez 45:37
what Shawn and I, what Shawn and I did before you popped on just to let you know how deep we dove with it. And Shawn did this first is he was telling it all the things about his client avatar, all the things that make his ideal client, and then it will write about, it’ll write to the pain points of that person. It is insanely cool.
And also about what Heather said, with the mundane tasks, I shared this in another room, I was walking bear. And I was like, oh shit, I needed to get my thank you emails out for that event that I did last week to my vendors that I hadn’t worked with before. So I was like, write me a thank you email about how great it was to work with the band last week at the Christmas party. And make sure to say that Cassandra went above and beyond and made it a great guest experience for everybody who attended. And it wrote me the email, and then I just copied it based. And so it’s like, I’m still putting the personal touches that it’s coming from me. I’m just not sitting there typing it all out from start to finish in the perfect email form. Chat. GPT does that. Another thing is that I’m writing like pitches to shows and like my earned media strategy for 2023. And it’s writing all of that information out for me to an email form, and then I just tweak it and send it. It’s literally freeing up so many minutes, it’s allowing you to multitask, and you’re not even realizing that you’re you’re literally splitting yourself in plain sight.
Jen Vazquez 47:21
Yeah, I mean, I’ve been playing with it entirely too much. And yet I’ve gotten more work done. Like I said, over the last week and a half to two weeks, I’ve saved about 20 hours of work. And that’s just from what I normally do, but it’s doubling like my work. It’s because I am not especially when I write emails, I am not a warm and fuzzy person. I’m the person who’s like, bottom line. And that’s not very friendly. And so yes, having it helped me write emails has done extraordinarily things for me as well. Any final thoughts? Heather, and hope any final thoughts before we can
write you an email drip campaign like an email sequence? It will like create a nurture campaign?
Jen Vazquez 48:09
Yes. I literally have that on my to do list for one of my newest, funny Holy crap,
like in Italy, right the template and like, where to put their name and like all that. Yeah, it’s insane.
Jen Vazquez 48:22
Question for you. Because someone had this question. And we didn’t know the answer. They asked, is it avail? Is there any restrictions in terms of countries and things but it’s allowed? I haven’t
seen that yet. I’m not sure though. My husband thinks that he has seen because he works in like the IT and security field as well. He thinks he’s seen some, like restrictions in different countries, but it hasn’t been confirmed yet. So you may Yeah. may want to
Jen Vazquez 48:54
and cat jpg. And if we’re thoughtful about it, I can imagine there’s some countries that don’t want this type of amazing capability because they want to control everything. So that kind of makes sense to let’s see. Karina had a question about adding in SEO keywords. Yeah, Karina, both Shawn and I, when we’re talking about blogging, they not only give you like, they’ll not only give you keywords for our ideal clients and their pain points, but it’ll give us hashtags as what just Heather just show shared with us. Obviously, like Heather said, you do have to put in kind of the parameters, but it will absolutely do that. So for my blog, Karina, it gave me keywords. It gave me a summary it gave me like it gave me everything I wanted, and needed and it’s all slanted toward my ideal client because I shared that information. That’s insane.
So real quick, just that my final thought will be my workflow. So that People understand like how you can use this for like multi layered what Heather’s been talking about what Jen’s been talking about. So you start with your right knee. So you get your customer avatar and then you say, write me a blog on how this avatar would be less stressed if they hired a wedding planner, and then it spits out a blog post. And then I asked it write me an SEO rich title for the blog, spits that out, write me a SEO description for the blog, spits that out, write me a three tweet thread, pushing the blog, and it writes that out with hashtags in it, then I say write me an Instagram caption that shows a graphic from one of the points in the blog, I’ll say like, focus on point two, and it’ll write me an Instagram caption for that blog, then it’ll write me a Pinterest title and description. I mean, so you can literally in a note sheet on your phone, have a complete like, introduction, social media posting schedule for this blog in literally three and a half minutes.
Jen Vazquez 51:14
That is insane, Shawn, I think that we should do another room on this. On our on different workflows, and so that everyone can get in, learn more, kind of figure it out and go from there. But I think this should definitely be a repeat room. What do you think, Shawn? And Heather, for sure. I see your hands. Absolutely.
Absolutely. I think we keep hosting rooms like this until all of the wedding pros who are on clubhouse and in our Facebook group are comfortable and using this regularly. Because just like Heather said, and I’m so glad she did. Yeah, either we get on board with this technology that saving time, or we’re going to be like the movie Ice Age.
Jen Vazquez 52:04
I totally agree. Hope any last thoughts?
Hi, I just think this has been absolutely amazing. I literally cannot wait to get home. So I have to travel. This sort of sign up and everything and play with it. I just can’t I just I’m so excited. So I take it. Can I just double check with you all though that it is I put in so I’m typing in or am I talking to it? Which one do I do and to get
Jen Vazquez 52:33
your typing in? I’m okay down the road. They’ll have a microphone capability. But for right now, if you’re typing it in,
okay, that’s fine. That’s fine. That’s absolutely fine. Yeah, I can’t I literally can’t wait. I’m so excited. I’m like Christmas is covered.
Hope I’ll send you it’s a minute and 42nd video that just shows the conversation I had with it to build my avatar. I’ll send it to you just like you’re
Jen Vazquez 53:00
sure, sure. Yes, I’m going to be creating a video like that as a real on Instagram as well and probably tick tock too, because I feel like wedding pros in general. But like literally everyone who is an entrepreneur should be jumping on this right now. Well, it’s free. I don’t know how long it’s going to be feel free for it could be free for a while since it’s open AI but you know, people are going to try to make money on it. And right now, like get in now while you can. And Heather. Sean and I were saying that we would pay for it if it got paid. Have you heard anything about what I’m
paying for it? It’s cheaper than me paying poorly for somebody I know. And I’m sorry, but that’s the way the world
Jen Vazquez 53:50
I know. I have my VA using it to also helped me with social media and stuff. So it’s like, you know, it’s it’s insane. Heather, do you want to come back for another room with? Yeah. All right. Well, we will go ahead and let you know when we schedule that next room. ppreciate it so much. Any any other final thoughts, Shawn before we move on?
Sounds good. Thank you so much.
Jen Vazquez 54:20
All right. I’ll see you guys later. Thanks for hopping aboard. And we’ll see you soon.
