What You Need to Know about chatGPT as a YouTube Creator

If you are new to Artificial Intelligence (AI), and want to start using it to help you create better content (or create content faster), you are in for a real treat. ChatGPT makes utilizing AI a breeze but it can be a hard concept to grasp at first. 

But first: what is ChatGPT?

ChatGPT stands for “Chat-based Generative Pre-trained Transformer” and is a large and powerful language model chatbot. It is based on GPT-3, which has been trained on hundreds of billions of words from the internet. It can understand and respond to prompts and questions in real time.

How can YouTube Creators use ChatGPT?

As content creators, we are used to coming up with our own ideas. We are no stranger to typing them out (or recording them directly into the camera) with our own hands. But with chatGPT, we can take our initial ideas and flesh them out even more (leading to even more ideas), and do it faster. Plus, we can get our ideas “on paper” faster as well.

While AI and chatGPT can sometimes be seen as a “lazy” way to create content, I disagree. I believe it is a tool that smart, creative content creators can use to get better results from your videos overall. That means more views, bigger audience, and more revenue.

This is, of course, only my opinion after using chatGPT as a YouTube creator for the last few months. If you’re not sure how to feel about chatGPT just yet, give it a try with my Prompt Powerup! This is my fill-in-the-blank digital download. Use it to harness the power of AI to get more views, grow your audience, and generate more revenue with your videos. Want to hear more?

VIDEO: My 5 favorite ChatGPT prompts for YouTube Creators

ChatGPT can help YouTube creators in several ways, but the 3 main areas that I have seen chatGPT assist in my YouTube content creation are:

Use ChatGPT To Make Your YouTube Content Better

ChatGPT can generate ideas, write scripts and create video titles. But, as a YouTuber, you likely have these skills. You can come up with ideas, write scripts, and create titles that engage your audience. As a human, you bring a unique perspective and creativity that machines can’t replicate. So, while ChatGPT is a useful tool… you probably do a better job than any robot could ever do. 

But what if you can use chatGPT to assist in improving what you’re already doing? For example, you can write a YouTube title, but in about 4 seconds, chatGPT can write 5 click-worthy YouTube titles in 55 characters or less so that you have more ideas to choose from (and they might even be better than what you came up with!). 

Another example is using chatGPT to optimize the first 10-30 seconds of your video. We all know that viewer retention is one of the top (maybe THE top) metric that YouTube cares about. When deciding whether to push your video, watch that exact metric. It determines viewers’ homepage and suggested video list. And when you can nail your intro, you’ll keep viewers watching long right from the start. So in your planning process, try asking chatGPT to take what you were going to say for your intro, and turning it into a 15-second intro instead. Can’t hurt to try!

Make Your YouTube Content Faster with ChatGPT

You and I both know that time is the number one enemy of all content creators. We wish we had more! An AI tool like ChatGPT helps accomplish more in the same time. Record and edit videos as usual. Outsource some of the other tasks to ChatGPT. Easy peasy!

For example, have you considered using AI to write a summary of your video transcript so that you can turn it into social media posts, an email to your list, or an entire blog post? Just think about how long that would take if you wrote it all yourself! If you’re anything like me, you simply wouldn’t do it at all. 

Fortunately, growing your email list and publishing blogposts alongside your YouTube content is a fantastic way to repurpose your YouTube videos to actually generate more traffic, audience, and revenue to your YouTube channel… all with the power of ChatGPT.

I have a killer email writing prompt for YouTube creators inside Prompt Powerup! If you’re like me and can barely bring yourself to email your list (we’re all growing our emails lists, right?!) when you publish a new video, Prompt Powerup makes it a total no brainer. Grab it here:

Get Better Results from YouTube with ChatGPT

The third way that I believe ChatGPT is incredible helpful for YouTube creators is to get better results from your content. What do I mean by this? Well, we all want to generate more revenue with our content. Although you may have multiple revenue streams, the bottom line is that your channel needs VIEWS in order to succeed. Without views, you can’t grow your audience or generate revenue at all. ChatGPT can help us with this!

So you already know that chatGPT can help craft click-worthy titles, which will, in turn, generate more views. But consider SEO… with a click-worthy title, and an optimized description, your videos will reach even more people. Not to mention your social media posts, emails, and blog posts (all written with the assistance of chatGPT!) sending your videos more traffic too. 

And did you know that ChatGPT can write sales copy as well? So if you have a digital product (your own or an affiliate product), chatGPT can generate social media posts, tweets, pinnable YouTube comments, emails AND calls to action to say inside your video. 

In fact, making sales typically does not come naturally to most creators, so I threw in a great short sales CTA prompt in Prompt Powerup too so that you an use chatGPT to generate more revenue with your YouTube channel.

The moral of the story is this. With ChatGPT, have a specific purpose. Grow your channel and make better content. Avoid wasting time in a trending AI rabbit hole. Instead, you’ll be putting it to work for you. 

ChatGPT Prompts to Try as a YouTube Creator

Although most of these are extremely simplistic, here are some prompts that YouTube creators can use to help enhance their content and engage with their audience:

  1. Script ideas: “Generate script ideas for a 5-minute video about [topic].”
  2. Video descriptions: “Write a video description for a video about [topic] that includes relevant keywords and phrases for SEO.”
  3. Captions or transcripts: “Generate captions or a transcript for a video about [topic].”
  4. Q&A content: “Generate answers to frequently asked questions about [topic].”
  5. Video outlines: “Generate an outline for a video about [topic] that includes an introduction, main points, and conclusion.”
  6. Chatbot responses: “Generate responses to common comments or questions from viewers about [topic].”
  7. Video tags: “Generate a list of tags for a video about [topic] that are optimized for SEO.”

The prompts that I use (and include inside Prompt Powerup) are multi-faceted and lead to quality output that you can use so you don’t waste time trying different prompts trying to get what you’re looking for. 

ChatGPT Mistakes to Avoid

To help keep you from getting lost, here are some ChatGPT mistakes to avoid. Keep in mind, Prompt Powerup gives you copy and paste prompts that you can use right away to avoid these mistakes:

Mistake #1: Not being specific enough

When crafting a prompt, it’s important to provide enough context and specificity so that ChatGPT can understand what you’re looking for.

Start by thinking about what information you want to know. Then frame your question in a way that is clear and concise. When asking about a specific topic, make sure to include relevant background information, too. Details help ChatGPT understand the context of your question. 

It may also helpful to use specific keywords and phrases related to the topic you’re asking about.

Think about ChatGPT like you’re chatting with a human. The AI understands natural language patterns, so treat it like you’re asking an assistant for help.

Mistake #2: Asking too many questions in one prompt

ChatGPT is best suited to answer one question at a time. When you ask too much at a time, it is difficult for ChatGPT to understand what you’re looking for. And when that happens, you probably won’t get a clear and concise answer. It may help to prioritize your questions, too. Start with the most important question, and if time allows, ask follow-up questions when it’s done answering the first one.

So limit your prompts to a single, clear question for the best results with ChatGPT.

Mistake #3: Using overly complex language or vocabulary

While ChatGPT is capable of understanding and using complex language, it’s best to be straightforward. Be simple in your prompts for the most accurate and helpful responses.

Here are some ways to ensure you avoid overly complicated vocabulary in your prompts:

  1. Avoid using technical jargon
  2. Use clear, concise sentence structures
  3. Use common, everyday language
  4. Be direct and to the point

Overall, just use the same language that you would use when speaking with a friend or family member. This can help ensure that ChatGPT can understand what you’re asking and provide a helpful response.

Mistake #4: Expecting ChatGPT to perform tasks outside of its capabilities 

ChatGPT likes to repeat the same reminder: “ChatGPT is an AI language model,” not a search engine or personal assistant. It can answer questions and generate text based on the input it receives. However, it cannot perform actions outside of the chat interface.

Basically… it’s not a magician. It’s important to understand the limitations of ChatGPT, So here are some tasks that ChatGPT cannot do:

  1. ChatGPT cannot perform physical actions such as moving objects or completing tasks in the real world.
  2. ChatGPT cannot search the internet. While ChatGPT has access to a vast amount of information, it cannot search the internet for specific information.
  3. ChatGPT can provide general information and advice, but it cannot provide personalized recommendations.
  4. ChatGPT cannot make decisions. It can provide information and options, but it cannot make decisions or take action on behalf of the user.
  5. Unfortunately, interacting with other applications is not something ChatGPT at this time.

Mistake #5: Not proofreading your prompts

Ok, I am guilty of this one! Typos or grammatical errors can make it difficult for ChatGPT to understand your prompt, so be sure to double-check your input before submitting.

That’s why I keep my own library of prompts so that I can copy and paste and not worry as much about typos in my prompts. I put my best chatGPT Prompts in this Digital Download if you want to use it for yourself!

More common ChatGPT mistakes include: 

  • Not providing enough context in your prompts
  • Asking leading questions
  • Expecting ChatGPT to have up-to-date information. While ChatGPT has been trained on a large corpus of text, its knowledge is based on data available up to 2021. If you’re looking for information on recent events or developments, it may not be accurate.

And don’t forget that ChatGPT is trained on a wide range of text, including both credible and non-credible sources… Yikes! It’s important to consider the source of the information. Use your own judgement when evaluating the accuracy and reliability of the responses.

Does ChatGPT Generate Quality Content?

Some creators are concerned that the text generated by ChatGPT may not high enough quality. At least, not enough to use in their videos or to represent their brand. And that makes total sense (I wondered the same thing myself)! So I asked ChatGPT and here’s what it said…

“The quality of ChatGPT’s responses can vary depending on a number of factors, such as the specificity and clarity of the prompt, the amount and quality of training data, and the architecture of the model. In general, ChatGPT is capable of providing high-quality responses, but it’s important to understand that it is not perfect and that some of its responses may not be accurate or relevant.

To ensure that you receive the best possible responses from ChatGPT, it’s important to provide clear, concise prompts that are specific and well-defined. Additionally, you should use your own judgement and common sense when evaluating the quality and reliability of the responses, especially if you’re using the information for important decisions.

While ChatGPT can be a valuable tool for generating text and answering questions, it’s important to keep in mind that it is not a substitute for human judgement and that its responses should be used as a starting point rather than the final word. By being aware of its limitations and using it effectively, you can ensure that you receive high-quality responses from ChatGPT and make the most of this powerful tool.”

Not a substitute for human judgement

This is an import point. ChatGPT is not you, nor can it ever be. So when you’re using AI to assist you as a YouTube creator, let’s not forget it is just a robot.

Generate Creative Content with ChatGPT

If you’re wondering whether ChatGPT has written this entire blog post, the answer is no! I used ChatGPT to assist in writing this post. In doing so, I kept getting more and more ideas for content to add. 

If I had copy and pasted an entire ChatGPT response and hit publish, you would never had read this far. It would be boring, bland, and robotic. Or, maybe it already is… in which case, perhaps I am not as personable as I thought. Haha. 

Although it is “just a robot,” it is possible to use ChatGPT to create original content. This is done by providing specific and well-defined prompts that encourage the model to generate unique responses. Here are a few tips on how to create original content with ChatGPT:

  1. Be creative with your prompts. Think outside the box and come up with creative and original prompts that encourage ChatGPT to generate unique responses.
  2. Provide specific context. Provide specific context and background information that can help ChatGPT understand the context of your prompt and generate a more original response.
  3. Use constraints (this is one of my favorite tips!). You can use constraints, such as a specific word count or style, to encourage ChatGPT to generate unique and original content that meets your requirements.
  4. Encourage creativity. Prompt ChatGPT to generate creative or imaginative responses by asking open-ended questions or asking for creative interpretations of a specific topic.
  5. Refine and edit the output. Once you have received a response from ChatGPT, take the time to review and edit the output to ensure that it meets your standards and is original and unique.

By following these tips, you can encourage ChatGPT to generate original content that is unique and tailored to your specific needs. Additionally, by using your own judgement and creativity, you can refine and edit the output to ensure that it meets your standards and represents your brand in the best possible way.

Frequently asked Questions about ChatGPT

Hopefully this post answered some questions you had about ChatGPT (and maybe brought up to questions you didn’t even know you had!) but if you’re still looking for more info, here’s what I can tell you. 

The best way to learn whether ChatGPT can assist you in your YouTube video creation is to try it. Use the prompts provided in this post, make up your own, or use the fill-in-the-blank prompts inside Prompt Powerup. Either way, you have to try it yourself to truly answer all your questions. 

If you’re still wondering, here are a few more questions about ChatGPT that come up often:

Do you need to know about AI in order to use ChatGPT?

No, you do not need to have extensive knowledge about AI language models in order to use ChatGPT. The model is designed to be user-friendly and accessible, and it can be used by anyone with basic computer skills and an internet connection.

All you need to do is type in a prompt or question, and ChatGPT will generate a response based on the input it receives. You can then use the response as is, or make modifications to it as needed.

While having a basic understanding of AI language models and how they work can be helpful, it is not a requirement for using ChatGPT. The model is designed to be used by people from a wide range of backgrounds and with varying levels of technical expertise, and it is intended to be a tool that makes it easier to access information and generate text.

Is the paid version of chatGPT more effective than the free version?

The paid version of ChatGPT may offer additional features or capabilities compared to the free version, but the effectiveness of the model will largely depend on the specific use case and the quality of the input provided.

In general, the paid version of ChatGPT may have access to more training data and may use more advanced architectures, which can result in improved performance and accuracy. However, the exact benefits of the paid version will vary depending on the specific model and the use case.

In my experience, the free version of ChatGPT’s response varied quite a bit. Often, I’d struggle to get good responses no matter how I worded my prompts. Not to mention I’d often get kicked off the system when user load was high! With the paid version of ChatGPT, I don’t get kicked off, it works a lot faster than before, and I find that the responses are more consistent.

Are there any ChatGPT Alternatives for YouTube Creators?

There are several alternatives to ChatGPT that YouTube creators can use to enhance their content and engage with their audience. Here are a few (updated 2/20/2023):


Jasper, an AI writing tool, has created it’s own AI chat tool, called Jasper Chat. While Jasper is great for generating a large amount of quality content, Jasper Chat helps create content in a more efficient way.

Google Bard

Bard is Google’s version of an AI chatbot. It will likely operate similarly to ChatGPT, meaning that users will be able to use the chatbot through conversation. As of this writing, Bard is now available to the public but I for one cannot wait to see how it competes with ChatGPT!


Chatsonic is powered by the same technology as chatGPT (GPT 3.5) but it accounts for some of ChatGPT’s limitations. Fun fact: Chatsonic can actually access the internet! And it can pull in information from Google’s Knowledge Graph  as well. This results in improved answers that are more consistent with recent events and up to date. 

GPT-3 Playground

GPT-3 Playground has been around since before ChatGPT became popular, the user interface is a lot more technical and not as easy to use. ChatGPT is a streamlined and optimized version of the GPT-3 model, designed to be more conversational and human-like in its responses.


Let’s not forget the Bing announced the integration of ChatGPT with it’s “New Bing” search engine. How will this play out? Time will tell… 

How can a YouTube Creator improve their YouTube SEO with ChatGPT?

YouTube creators can use ChatGPT to improve their YouTube SEO in several ways, including:

  1. Generating video titles and descriptions: ChatGPT can be used to generate optimized video titles and descriptions that accurately reflect the content of the video and include relevant keywords to improve visibility and ranking.
  2. Generating transcriptions: By using ChatGPT to generate transcriptions of your videos, you can improve the accessibility of your content for viewers who are deaf or hard of hearing, and also provide search engines with additional content to index, which can improve your ranking.
  3. Answering frequently asked questions: By using ChatGPT to generate answers to frequently asked questions related to your content, you can improve the visibility and ranking of your videos on YouTube by providing valuable information that is relevant to your audience.
  4. Generating blog posts and articles (one of my favorites!): By using ChatGPT to generate blog posts and articles related to your content, you can improve your YouTube SEO by providing additional content that is relevant to your audience and optimized for search engines.

By using ChatGPT in these ways, YouTube creators can improve their YouTube SEO and reach a wider audience by optimizing their content and making it more accessible and relevant to their viewers. Additionally, by providing high-quality and relevant content, creators can improve the engagement and retention of their audience, which can result in improved rankings and greater visibility on YouTube over time.
