Seven Ways to Integrate Chat GPT into Your B2B Content Marketing Efforts
Depending on which content marketer you speak with, Chat GPT is either overrated as a B2B content tool or a mass extinction event sending human content marketers the way of the dinosaurs. OpenAI CEO and ChatGPT founder Sam Altman paraphrased Robert Oppenheimer during an interview with the New York Times two years ago. As ever, the truth of the value of Chat GPT and content marketing lies somewhere between the extremes; it certainly is the best thing since sliced bread, but that loaf is far from properly baked yet. In this article, we’ll explore both edges of the sword that is Chat GPT in content marketing.

Seven Ways to Integrate Chat GPT into Your B2B Content Marketing
Integrating Chat GPT into your B2B content marketing can revolutionize how you engage with your target audience (I don’t use that word lightly). From personalized customer support through virtual assistants to creating interactive and dynamic content like quizzes and calculators (on the double), Chat GPT enhances the overall customer experience by turbo-charging content generation all through the conversion funnel.
1. Play around to get a feel for how the system works (and doesn’t work)
Before diving into content creation, take some time to familiarize yourself with Chat GPT's capabilities and functionalities. Experiment with different prompts and see how it responds to various inputs. For all its vaunted processing power, the face of Chat GPT is a chatbot. To get it to do what you need it to do, treat prompts more like a conversation than a one-way monologue.
2. Start a new chat per project
Usually, Chat GPT wouldn't have added the emojis to the response above. But it was generated after I asked it to create a social post, prompting the emojis. The mechanism is called “contextual awareness,” which allows it to recall what you’ve asked before and maintain the context of the conversation. Using new chats per project in Chat GPT allows the model to remember the content fed into each chat, leading to a more personalized content generation that resonates with the target audience.
3. Social posts - a great way to start small
ChatGPT can help write social media posts, cold emailers, ad copy, YouTube descriptions, scripts for explainer videos… To improve the content, begin with a rough draft and use Chat GPT to enhance it. For example, I copied and pasted a rough first draft of this article into Chat GPT and then asked it to write a social post.
4. Think like an algorithm
With Chat GPT, quality prompts equals quality content. Your B2B content will be equally generic if your prompt contains generic super-basic instructions. Detailed, specific, instruction-rich prompts are the key.
Clear and Specific Prompt: "Draft a blog post on the top 5 cybersecurity trends for B2B businesses in 2023, highlighting the importance of data protection and emerging threats."
Customer Success Story Prompt: "Craft a persuasive case study showcasing how our B2B SaaS solution helped a client in the healthcare industry achieve significant cost savings and streamline their operations. Use real data and specific metrics to highlight the success story."
Crisis Management Response Prompt: "Invent a crisis scenario where a B2B software outage occurs, impacting multiple clients. Write a public statement for our CEO, demonstrating empathy, transparency, and reassurance while outlining the steps our team is taking to resolve the issue and prevent future occurrences."
Interactive Content Idea Prompt: "Brainstorm and outline an interactive quiz for our B2B financial services clients. Design questions that help them identify the most suitable financial solutions based on their specific needs and conclude with a personalized recommendation and a call-to-action to connect with our financial advisors."
5. Generate lead magnets.
ChatGPT can be used to generate outlines for ebooks, white papers, and checklists at speed. It can also write the whole thing for you, but be prepared for content so bland and uninspired that it puts Chat GPT to sleep while it’s generating it. The trick is to work with it to make the outline compelling before any writing begins.
6. Know your customers better.
Utilize social listening and audience data to identify your target demographic's pain points, desires, and preferences. Feed this information to Chat GPT to generate content that specifically engages the identified needs of your audience.
7. Industrialize your idea generation.
Writer’s block? Chat GPT can give you a fresh perspective and suggest topics you may not have considered on your own, which can often be the springboard for ideas that deliver more value to customers.
8. More than just so-so at automating SEO.
Chat GPT is great at streamlining multiple SEO elements, including keyword research, content optimization, and evaluating content length. By automating routine SEO tasks, Chat GPT lets you focus on other strategic aspects of your B2B content marketing. Just remember this is Chat GPT, thoroughly check any generated content for errors before you publish.
Five watch-outs when using Chat GPT in your content marketing
Chat GPT changes the game for content marketing. No doubt. However, exercising caution to safeguard your organization's integrity and credibility. Using Chat GPT to publish content under your organization's name could damage your brand reputation and even leave you legally exposed if an NDA is in place.
1. Brand alignment mishaps because 15% of the time, Chat GPT gets things wrong
Chat GPT has an accuracy of 85% or higher, making it a valuable research assistant and content creation tool for organizations generating their own B2B content. But it's crucial to be cautious of that remaining 15% of the time when it gets it wrong and doesn’t have the awareness to let you know. Misalignments in brand voice and messaging could significantly damage your brand reputation.
2. It’s great at voices, but only if you already have clear and distinctive brand voice samples to feed it
Chat GPT, write one paragraph as Yoda might describe using Chat GPT for B2B content marketing.
Trained on industrial quantities of diverse text data, including Star Wars' galactic online fanbase, Chat GPT excels at Yoda’s voice. But new businesses seeking a consistent, distinctive, and relevant brand voice struggle not to sound like a billion-dollar chatbot raised on cardboard and corporate cliche.
3. Potential for misinformation
Be warned, Chat GPT generates responses based on patterns in the data it was trained on, without verifying source credibility. This puts companies at risk of publishing inaccurate B2B content, negatively impacting SEO rankings, brand authority, and thought leadership. Rule of thumb: Fact-check, then fact-check again by teaming up with .
4. Privacy issues, Client NDAs, Compliance hot water
When using AI language models like Chat GPT for your content marketing, implement risk controls, such as obtaining explicit consent from stakeholders and addressing concerns, to avoid breaches of confidentiality or NDAs. Imagine uploading your highly confidential 50-page PowerPoint onto the Piratebay. While it’s an extreme example, staying vigilant when posting sensitive information is critical when using Chat GPT.
5. Quality B2B content engages with today’s problems, but Chat GPT is stuck in September 2021.
Handing over the reins of your B2B marketing to Chat GPT is like trusting a copywriter who never moans, snarks, calls in sick, or makes typos and has a verbal IQ better than 99.9% of the population. Brilliant? Not so brilliant! The copywriter is stuck in a time bubble where the world after September 2021 never happened (not so brilliant).
Chat GPT, do you know that FTX is bankrupt now?
Rule of thumb: Cross-check and verify content generated by Chat GPT before publishing. (Have we mentioned that yet?)
6. Duplicate content can punish by Google’s SEO
Chat GPT, which generates responses from its training data, resulting in content resembling existing material on the internet. For B2B websites, this poses a challenge as search engines penalize duplicate content. To maintain content quality, prioritize value-driven insights over quantity. Sometimes this means turning off Chat GPT, closing your laptop, and consulting with your own amazing intelligence.
Consider supplementing your Chat GPT with the expertise of an experienced content agency.
Can clients save their marketing budget and rely on Chat GPT to replace an experienced B2B content agency yet? What does Chat GPT's founder think?
AI offers great potential to B2B content, but we need human oversight to maintain its integrity, relevance, and authenticity while enhancing its impact.
