You’ve probably experimented with ChatGPT or other AI tools but found that the content they generate doesn’t quite capture your unique brand voice. So how to make ChatGPT write like you?

I’ll guide you step-by-step. Intrigued? Let’s dive in!

Why Your Brand Voice Matters

Before we jump into the how-to, let’s talk about why this matters. Your brand voice is like your business’s personality. It’s what makes your audience go, “Yep, that’s definitely [Your Name] talking!”

When your AI-generated content matches your voice, it’s like having a clone of yourself pumping out blog posts, emails, and social media content. Pretty cool, right?

How To Train ChatGPT To Write Like You

You can watch my video on how you can make ChatGPT (or any AI tool) write in your brand voice – or read the blog post.

Gather Your Content Examples

First things first, we need to give the AI something to work with. Here’s what you need to do:

  • Find two of your blog posts that really showcase your style (they shouldn’t be written with AI)
  • Don’t have blog posts? No worries! Find someone who writes similarly to you and use their content. And no, we won’t steal their content and repurpose it. We’ll just use it for brand voice analysis.
  • Name this file as “Content Examples” and save it as a txt file.

Upload and Analyze

Now, let’s share this content with ChatGPT:

  • Head over to ChatGPT (make sure you’re using ChatGPT 4o or 4, as GPT-3.5 doesn’t support file uploads).
  • Click the upload button and choose the “Content Examples” txt file.

  • Ask ChatGPT to act as a content analysis expert and break down your writing style. If you want to use the exact AI prompts I’ve used to train ChatGPT, you can grab them here.
  • Copy the analysis from ChatGPT and paste it into a Google Doc and name the file “Tone & Style”. Leave this document open because you’ll add other information. We’ll do that in the next step, so keep reading.

Take a Personality Test

Here’s where it gets fun:

  • Go to 16personalities.com and take their personality test.
  • Add your result from the personality test to the top of your Google Doc (“Tone & Style”).
  • Save this txt file and download it.

Here’s my example of the result I got in the 16personalities.com:

Create Your Custom Prompt Tag

Now you’re going to get a prompt tag:

  • Upload your “Tone & Style” txt file to ChatGPT.
  • Ask it to create a prompt tag based on your writing style and personality. But also tell it to ask you clarifying questions. This is one of the 4 essential steps when writing your AI prompts.
  • ChatGPT will ask you some questions. Answer them honestly!

ChatGPT (or other AI tools) might now give you a prompt tag, so copy the following text, and paste it into ChatGPT:

That is NOT a prompt tag. The example below is a prompt tag, but don’t use any information from it. I just wanted to show you how a prompt tag looks like: 

“””[Type: INFJ-A, ] [Style: Motivational, Friendly, Encouraging, Direct and personal, Simple, Conversational, Empathetic, Supportive, Break complex topics into clear actionable steps, avoid complex jargon] [Tone: Confident, Energetic, Empowering, Witty, Mix of subtle wit and overt humor, Relatable examples, Interactive with rhetorical questions] [Techniques: Clear instructions, illustrative examples, Short sentences, Organized lists, Acknowledge struggles of the audience, Evoke empowerment] [Content: Actionable, Educational, Value-focused, Practical advice] [Narrative: Use stories-style for actionable tips and wisdom, Inspire action with practical wisdom and positive, empowering outlook for a target audience of busy 25-40 year old female digital marketers]”””

Refine and Test

You’re almost there! Now it’s time to polish that prompt:

  • Ask ChatGPT to optimize and shorten the prompt tag.
  • IMPORTANT: Save both – the long and short version.
  • Start testing both versions (just not in the same AI prompt) to see which one works best for you.

And just a reminder: you can get all AI prompts and a video guide here.

The Power of Personalization

By now, you’re probably thinking, “Wow, this is AMAZEBALLS!”😂 And you’re right. With AI that writes in your tone & style, you can:

  • Create more content in less time
  • Maintain a consistent brand voice across all platforms
  • Focus on strategy while AI handles the heavy lifting of content creation

Imagine waking up to a fresh batch of social media posts, all sounding just like you wrote them over your morning coffee. That’s the power of personalized AI content!
