As a cloud accounting firm, we have seen firsthand the impact that technology can have on small businesses. With the rise of artificial intelligence (AI), small business owners now have the opportunity to streamline their administrative tasks, freeing up more time and energy to focus on growing their business. Now there is a new technology on the scene that is set to transform the way we all work. That technology is Chat GPT.
Chat GPT, or Generative Pre-trained Transformer is an AI-powered chatbot that can automate repetitive administrative tasks. By leveraging natural language processing (NLP) and machine learning algorithms, Chat GPT can understand and respond to human language, making it a powerful tool for small business owners looking to streamline their workflow.
Chatbots have become an essential tool for small businesses to increase efficiency, improve customer experience, and reduce costs. ChatGPT, is kind of like a chatbot, a very highly advanced one that not only answers questions but will help you complete tasks as well. In this blog, we’ll explore the various ways a small business can (or will be able) to utilize ChatGPT to streamline its operations and improve customer satisfaction.
Chat GPT is still new and we have only just begun to see its uses and potential with Microsoft only recently set to add it to Teams (Pro). The expectation is that it will be added to other areas of Microsoft 365 as well since Microsoft is one of the major investors behind Chat GPT. It is also being licensed by other platforms, and apps and can be licensed directly too. So you will see it underlying more and more offerings in the marketplace. Here are some use cases we can see playing out.
ChatGPT can assist with content creation by generating articles, blogs, or even social media posts. This can save time and resources for small businesses and help them stay active on multiple platforms. There are already platforms such as Jasper.ai that are helping business owners use this tool to create engaging blogs a quarter of the time. You have to see it to believe so be sure to start a trial and see what it can do. Even the current basic version direct from Open AI will show you the potential here. Just hop on and ask Chat GPT to write you a blog on the INSERT topic here. It is pretty amazing.
ChatGPT can be integrated into your website or app to provide 24/7 customer support. As we mentioned Chat GPT is the next evolution of the basic Chatbot. This can increase customer engagement and lead to higher conversion rates. Meta, Shopify, and Canva are reported as some of the big companies that are already integrating their chatbox systems with the underlying support of Chat GPT. As we continue, I expect some small business off-the-shelf offerings using it as well. Be on the lookout for this to hit the markets in a big way soon.
- Marketing: ChatGPT can help with marketing by providing personalized recommendations and promotions to customers. This is similar to the customer service chatbox for service issues but with a more sales-based intent. ChatGPT can collect and analyze data from customer interactions to gain insights into customer behavior and preferences. This information can be used to improve the overall customer experience and increase sales by providing more targeted marketing. We expect some of the analytical tools to start using some of the machine learning components of this soon.
Do you find you get repeat questions from customers in emails asking how to do something? Chat GPT can be used to respond to help you prepare emails to respond to common questions. So if customers are ever using you as their own special form of Google, consider responding with the help of Chat GPT. We are sure this will be part of Microsoft’s offering eventually. Until then, it can be done indirectly via the Chat GPT app.
In conclusion, ChatGPT offers numerous benefits for small businesses. Those advantages are only just being identified and utilized by the marketplace. It is already clear that it will be able to be used to streamline operations, improve customer satisfaction, and increase efficiency. As technology continues to advance, it’s important for small businesses to stay ahead of the curve and take advantage of innovative tools like ChatGPT. We strongly suggest you try Chat GPT to see what this early version can do. This will allow you to begin to see how it can be adopted into your own operations. Or maybe you will even have an idea for a new business or offering that can utilize it. You can also check out our video on Chat GPT uses cases for an engineering firm here.
