We can’t talk about AI technology without mentioning ChatGPT. Sometimes termed the “Google of AI”, when used correctly, the AI chatbot can be an invaluable AI tool for Shopify online stores.
By leveraging ChatGPT, you can create your own compelling copy, from product descriptions to blog posts. You can even integrate it into chatbots or use it for email marketing which can be used for customer interaction and retargeting.
While AI chatbots and AI-generated content have undeniably come a long way, it’s important that we acknowledge that much of the content generated by ChatGPT can fall a bit flat. Not to mention that you need to fact-check everything, especially when it comes to data that comes after 2021.
If you wish to use ChatGPT effectively, it all comes down to critical evaluation and adding a personal flair to its content to efficiently enhance your Shopify store and online business!
ChatGPT is free to use.
