This is an entry-level course on ChatGPT prompts, which requires no threshold or basic knowledge.


If you are a professional in the workplace and just want to use ChatGPT as a tool to improve work efficiency, make decisions, or provide convenience and advice in your daily life, you don’t need to spend several hours or even dozens of hours learning how to use it. Because you are just a user, not a researcher.


So, this course is tailor-made for you. There will be no unnecessary words, no difficult theories, only efficient summaries and examples. It will teach you questioning techniques and methods in just one hour. Starting from scratch, I will guide you step by step on how to transform a simple sentence into a qualified prompt. With just one hour of your time, you will gain multiple times the ability to use ChatGPT.


This course consists of four parts:

● The first part

A simple explanation of the principles behind ChatGPT and prompts. Why do we need to understand the principles? Because understanding the simple principles will help you comprehend the following content. Once you become proficient in using it, you can create even better prompts based on these principles. Don’t worry, it won’t be a complex technical explanation. Just spend a few minutes to understand it.


● The second part:

I will introduce some common techniques for writing prompts, including using separators, checking specific vocabulary, and specifying output requirements. Mastering these techniques will be the beginning of differentiating yourself from ordinary ChatGPT users.


● The third part:

I will introduce some effective methods for writing prompts. In this chapter, you will learn six questioning methods, including Role-playing method, Audience-Targeted Method, Scenario-Based Method, and Question decomposition method. At this point, ChatGPT will no longer be your “toy,” but a satisfying “weapon” that can help you with almost anything.


● Lastly

I will share some of my thoughts on how to design a complete prompt from an idea, combining the techniques and methods you have learned. We will use an example of TikTok operations: making ChatGPT create a “strategy to gain 100,000 followers from 0.” In this case, you will witness the process of transforming a simple prompt into a complete one. Once you master this prompt design process, you can apply it to other cases and solve almost any problem. Join us in learning together, I am really looking forward to it. Thank you!
