The 2 AI Tools you Need to Boost Sales

INTRO


AI can be an effective way to boost sales. From lead generation to note-taking, pitching, and business model refinement, these AI tools promise to supercharge your sales process. But, with hundreds of options, it can often feel like you’re a small fish swimming in a big, confusing pond.

Drawing from my extensive experience in business development, I can confidently say that ChatGPT is a one-stop shop to streamline your sales process. You're probably already familiar with ChatGPT, so I'll spare you the basics. Instead, let's focus on two game-changing features: Custom Instructions and Keymate.AI.

CUSTOM INSTRUCTIONS – PERSONALIZING AI INTERACTION

OpenAI introduced the "Custom Instructions" feature for ChatGPT Plus users earlier this year. This allows users to add personal details, enabling ChatGPT to generate more relevant responses. By simply adding my name, job title, and a short company description, I've tailored ChatGPT to better assist my professional needs.

KEYMATE.AI – KEEPING INFORMATION CURRENT

ChatGPT's innovative plugin system allows third-party add-ons, such as KeyMate.ai, to enhance its functionality. KeyMate.ai uses Google's search engine to fetch real-time information, moving beyond ChatGPT's data, which is currently only until September 2021.

VOILA – YOU’VE GOT YOURSELF A TURBOCHARGED VIRTUAL ASSISTANT

With the combination of Custom Instructions and Keymate, ChatGPT Plus becomes your turbocharged virtual assistant, outperforming that summer intern who got the job through nepotism. So what's next?

  1. CRAFT THE PERFECT PICKUP LINE:

Imagine this... you've sifted through thousands of leads to identify high-value prospects. Now, ChatGPT acts as your ultimate wingman, helping you craft compelling openers that are designed to obtain a positive response. Simply input details about your business into the "Custom Instructions" and use a prompt like...

Prompt: "How can Apple's marketing team utilize my company's service?"

  1. WRITE EMAILS THAT CAPTURE HEARTS:

You often have only about 20 words to capture a prospect's attention via email. ChatGPT serves as your business-world Cyrano de Bergerac, helping you craft compelling email copy that will mesmerize your prospects.

Prompt: "You are a quirky/fun/professional/direct sales rep at my company. Draft an email to Tim Cook about why he should schedule a meeting with us."

  1. BE THE STAR OF CONFERENCE CALLS:

We can all agree that going off-topic or enduring awkward silences during a meeting can get embarrassing. ChatGPT is your personal hype-coach, supplying you with talking points, counterarguments, and even jokes. For example:

Prompt: "I have a 45-minute meeting scheduled with Tim Cook to discuss Apple's new iPhone marketing strategy. Provide an outline and list of key talking points."

  1. STRATEGISE AND ANALYSE:

Think of Keymate as the Robin to your Batman. This plugin boosts your web search capabilities, enabling you to find the most relevant and up-to-date information. 

Prompt: “Analyze www.yourclientsdomain.com and tell me why they should choose our company for their marketing campaign.” 

  1. TL;DR? NO PROBLEMO:

For paid users, Keymate offers a PDF reading and analysis function. You can upload a PDF and then ask Keymate specific questions about it.

Prompt: “Search my personal database for our budgets from Q1 2021 to Q4 2023 and point out the trends in our clients’ spending.”

CONC.

In conclusion, using ChatGPT and Keymate intelligently can elevate your work efficiency, making you more competitive in the fast-paced business world—all from a single browser tab. Other AI tools have their merits, but sometimes using a sledgehammer to crack a nut is just overkill. Interested in exploring more? Reach out to me on LinkedIn.
