Artificial Intelligence uses in ecommerce
Using AI in ecommerce
Before getting into the details of how to use AI tools to optimize product listings, we should first talk about the prompt - the input we give the tool in order to get the desired result.
A prompt is the text query you give the AI tool to make it go to work. It is whatever you want the tool to do, so the prompt should include the context for the query, the desired result, and other relevant information. Based on the details given to it in the prompt, the AI tool will generate an appropriate answer, and the quality of the answer depends a lot on the information provided in the prompt.
For example, if you want ChatGPT to generate a product title, the prompt should state what the product is, what are the attributes you want to highlight, and to which marketplace it is destined.
Generating Optimized Titles
Optimizing listings’ titles is one of the key ways to reach the top of the search results page.
However, not everyone is an SEO expert, and unless you can afford to hire SEO experts to do the work, learning how to do it properly and getting to know the different algorithms takes a lot of time and effort.
This is where AI tools come in. Instead of investing plenty of resources on title optimization, AI tools can generate multiple optimized product titles in almost an instant!
Generating Optimized Descriptions
Creating engaging and optimized content for your product listings can be a daunting task. The content should contain various keywords and keyphrases, be written in a legible and engaging manner, and include all the information that may be important to shoppers. In addition, adjustment should be made when using the content in different channels, as each one has its own demands (number of characters allowed, specific formats, etc.). Compared to titles, much more resources are required to create a high quality product description. Luckily, AI tools in ecommerce can be a big help in this as well.
AI tools can instantly generate high quality content for product listings, and optimize it according to the demands of each specific marketplace, so you can use it across multiple channels. Make sure the prompt includes the product, its attributes, and channels’ rules, and you will get a high quality, optimized product description that is sure to boost conversion rates.
Generating Optimized Content for Multiple Products
So, using AI tools to generate optimized content for marketplaces is great, but what if I need to create lots of titles and products? How can I do it without having to keep rewriting the prompt for every product?
Well, there is a hack for that: by using a simple Excel spreadsheet you can create instant prompts for ChatGPT, for multiple different products. Here how it goes:
Remember! As impressive as AI tools are, they are still prone to mistakes. That is why it is important to always review the texts generated by these tools before using them.
AI tools in ecommerce such as ChatGPT or any other generative AI, can help sellers boost their product listings position to the top of the search results page, which, in turn, will increase conversion rates and sales. Sellers can use AI tools to generate original and optimized content, or upgrade and adjust their existing content to better fit the marketplace’ search engine, driving the discoverability and findability of their product listings.
