List-making used to be reserved for the most organized among us. Things like grocery lists, to-do’s, and holiday cards that needed mailing all found their way onto carefully crafted notepads across the country.

But in recent years, lists have become an art form — from irreverent ‘Things We Found In The Office Couch’ style compilations to exhaustive encyclopedias tracking every detail of life in a certain place or time — exploring our daily lives through list form has become more popular than ever.

First, let’s introduce you to ChatGPT.

A Guide to ChatGPT — The Future of Content Creation

ChatGPT stands for “conversational Generative Pre-trained Transformer,” a natural language processing (NLP) model developed by OpenAI. It is designed to generate conversational responses based on input from the user, making automated conversations more natural and lifelike.

To do this, ChatGPT uses an encoder-decoder architecture, which means that the system takes an input sentence and converts it into a numerical vector before passing it through a decoder to generate an output sentence. This allows the system to understand the context of the conversation and generate appropriate responses in real-time.

The potential applications of ChatGPT are vast — from customer service bots to virtual assistants — allowing businesses to automate conversations while still providing customers with personalized interactions at scale.

For content creators, ChatGPT provides endless ideas for research, list-making, and structuring content. Here are some of the things you can do with ChatGPT:

1. Generate ideas for list-based content — Use lists to structure and organize your topics to make them easier to read and understand.

2. Generate titles and headlines — Come up with creative titles and headlines for your content that are tailored to the topic.

3. Generate content — Use ChatGPT’s natural language processing capabilities to generate interesting content on various topics.

4. Structure and organize content — Create structured and organized pieces of content by organizing it into lists, categories, and other outlines.

5. Research content — Utilize ChatGPT’s research capabilities to learn more about the topic you are writing about.

ChatGPT is revolutionizing how content creators approach to content, providing them with new and exciting ways to organize their ideas and generate interesting content for their audiences.

With its natural language processing capabilities and ability to generate conversational responses, ChatGPT is the perfect tool for content creators who want to create engaging, informative, and exciting list-based pieces of content.

Discovering the Unknown with AIPRM’s ChatGPT Templates

Have you ever stumbled across something unexpected and been delighted to discover it? That’s how I felt when I found AIPRM’s Google Chrome extension for ChatGPT. It turns out that this extension holds a library of amazing chat prompt templates for discovering the unknown.

This morning, I discovered the ChatGPT promote template called: “Most people don’t know.” by Clément Desmousseaux.

This template is perfect for creating a list for a blog, Youtube channel, drip email campaign, social posts, and so forth. The content ideas from this one list are endless.

What is “Most People Don’t Know”?

The “Most people don’t know” chat prompt template from AIPRM is a great way to uncover lesser-known facts about various topics. All you need to do is enter a keyword or phrase, and the extension will generate a list of 90 items that most people probably don’t know about your chosen topic!

And once it reaches 90 items on the list, you can even ask it to keep going.

How Can You Use This Template?

As a real estate agent in Las Vegas, I create content for my website. My first thought was to enter Las Vegas as the keyword, and I was impressed with the results. It covered everything from the only golf course on the Las Vegas strip to the Nevada test site.

Lists like this are amazing for idea generation. Rather than just posting the 90 items on your website without revisions or expansions, imagine the possibilities.

This template can be used to create a trivia quiz, an educational piece with images and videos, or even a conversation starter in social media posts.

Create a content calendar taking each of the items and breaking them down into smaller posts, podcasts, or videos.

The possibilities are endless!

Kicking it up a notch

Most bloggers will take a list like this and post it as-is on their website. That’s a mistake for a few reasons.

1.) While AI content creation is new, it’s booming. And as more and more people embrace AI content creation, they will use these templates for the same keywords and topics. Nothing will be special or unique if everyone posts the same content.

2.) Nobody knows how Google is going to handle AI content, and it appears to me that ChatGPT content seems to be AI-generated when I run it through my AI content detector [here is some info about the AI content detector I use].

3.) It’s not helpful enough. According to Google’s Search Advocate, John Mueller, content automatically generated with AI writing tools is considered spam and violates their Webmaster Guidelines.

Google has algorithms in place to detect and demote such content, as it tries to drive people away from articles written by machines and those written by humans.

However, Google is not against all AI-generated content. It can be accepted if the content is reviewed and offers a better user experience than low-quality or plagiarized material. Marketers need to understand that Google wants quality over quantity when it comes to AI-generated content.


Now, let’s look at how to make this content helpful and unique.

  1. You could make each item on the list a header (h2) and elaborate on each item, including more images, videos, facts, stats, and sources. You could give examples, personal opinions, or tips.
  2. You could make the list a quiz or trivia game and even offer a prize (imagine building your email list).
  3. You could take items from your list and make new comprehensive lists that are more long-tail and valuable. For example, I could take the same template, and instead of making it about Vegas, I can make 90 facts about Fremont street.
  4. You could use the items on the list as social media prompts, ask for opinions, personal experiences, and reviews, and update your lists to include them as you collect them.

Use the List as Inspiration

If you are a more experienced content creator and enjoy keyword research, play with the keywords in the items on your list.

For example, My list mentioned the neon lights in Las Vegas. I became curious and entered neon lights into my favorite keyword research tool. [I use SEMrush].

The tool suggested the following topics:

  1. The Neon Museum
  2. Neon Museum Las Vegas Wedding
  3. Neon Museum Tickets

I wouldn’t have thought to blog about the Neon Museum if my list hadn’t inspired me to look into the keyword “Neon Lights.”

Here would be my exact process to build on that inspiration.

  1. If the keyword isn’t too competitive, which isn’t based on my domain authority, I’ll create a blog post.
  2. I enter the keyword into Surfer SEO’s content planner.
  3. Surfer will help me understand the depth of the content I need to create by comparing the other top-ranking pages. [In this case, it indicates that I need an article of around 1500 words. That’s easily doable.
  4. I use Jasper as an AI writing assistant, and it integrates with Surfer. So I create a new doc in Jasper and open the surfer SEO integration. As I create my content in Jasper, Surfer will score my work based on the correlation data. [number of words, headings, paragraphs, and NLP keywords].
  5. Often, I will pull the suggested headers from Surfer into Jasper, so I know what subtopics to cover.
  6. I use the one-shot blog post in Jasper for each header, giving me a complete subtopic that includes more subheadings [H3's’]
  7. I use Jasper chat with Google search data to find external sources and data to cite and link to.
  8. I ask Jasper for a closing paragraph.
  9. I ask Jasper for a list of Frequently asked questions. Sometimes, I’ll use the FAQs I find on Google, SEMrush, or Surfer SEO. It’s easy to find questions that people ask using these tools.
  10. I use Originality.AI to scan for AI content (although there is no perfect scanner).
  11. After writing the article, I’ll use the headline improver to develop a better title. Sometimes ChatGPT does a better job with titles.

In summary, I use ChatGPT (free currently) for inspiration. I use the AIPRM ChatGPT chrome extension to find promote templates for idea generation. I use SEMrush for keyword research, Jasper for AI Writing, and Surfer SEO for on-page optimization.

This winning combo of tools helps me come up with creative, comprehensive, and valuable content that ranks on Google.

I’m just getting started sharing my findings with the new and amazing AI tools, so I hope you will subscribe for more! As a 6-figure blogger, I’m here to share my best tips so that you can write better content and get it out faster.

I hope this helps! Have a great day! :-)
