Text Messages with ChatGPT: A Guide to Creating Templates Easily

ChatGPT on circuit board

Crafting the perfect text message for your audience is no easy task. It's not just about sending a message; it's about connecting, engaging, and making an impact. Sometimes, your text message is your first impression and the only chance to get the response you are looking for. Our most successful customers diligently test different messages for the best response rates. That can require a lot of time and thought, and creative writing isn't a specialty for everyone. That's why we're here to empower you with a tool that can revolutionize your text messaging: ChatGPT.

Imagine that you're a recruiter at a staffing agency and you've created a message you want to send to candidates in your database that might be a good fit for a job you're trying to fill. Give me 5 examples of ways that I might use ChatGPT to improve the message below.

"[Recipient's Name] this is Ron from TextStaffing, we have a job opening for the position of Forklift Driver in Frisco, Texas. If interested please reply to this message for more details."

This a real prompt I gave ChatGPT related to mass texting for staffing and hiring, and here is what it gave me back!

Absolutely, here are five ways you could use ChatGPT to improve your message:

  1. Make it More Personal and Friendly

    • "Hi [Recipient's Name], it's Ron here from TextStaffing. Hope this message finds you well! We have an exciting opportunity for a Forklift Driver position in the vibrant city of Frisco, Texas. If this sparks your interest, please reply to this message and I'd be happy to share more details with you."
  2. Add Urgency and Excitement

    • "🚀 Immediate Opening Alert! 🚀 Hello [Recipient's Name], this is Ron from TextStaffing. We have a hot job opening for a Forklift Driver in Frisco, Texas. Don't miss out on this opportunity! Reply to this message ASAP if you're interested and we'll get you all the details."
  3. Make it More Formal and Professional

    • "Dear [Recipient's Name], I am Ron from TextStaffing. We are currently seeking candidates for a Forklift Driver position in Frisco, Texas. Should this position align with your career aspirations, we invite you to reply to this message for further information."
  4. Add a Touch of Humor

    • "Hey [Recipient's Name], Ron from TextStaffing here. Ever dreamt of driving a forklift in Frisco, Texas? Well, you're in luck! We have a job opening that might just make that dream come true. If you're interested (or just really curious), reply to this message and I'll spill the beans."
  5. Make it Stand Out with Emojis

    • "👋 Hi [Recipient's Name]! This is Ron from TextStaffing 🏢. Guess what? We have a job opening for a 🚜 Forklift Driver in Frisco, Texas 🌵. Interested? Please reply 📩 to this message for more details. Looking forward to hearing from you!"

Remember, the key is to match the tone and style of the message to your recipient's preferences and the nature of your relationship with them. 

This is just one example, but it's the tip of the iceberg for what you can do with ChatGPT. Keep reading to get a basic understanding of what ChatGPT is and how to get started creating high-quality templates. 


What is ChatGPT?

In simple terms, ChatGPT is like a super-smart robot that loves to write. You can ask it to help you write anything, like a story, a letter, or homework! You just tell it what you want to write about, and it will come up with ideas and sentences for you. It's like having a friend who's good at writing and is always ready to help you out. 

In reality, ChatGPT is an advanced language model that uses machine learning to generate human-like text. It's like having a professional writer at your fingertips, ready to help you craft compelling, personalized, and effective text messages.

Why Use ChatGPT for Text Messaging?

So, imagine you're playing a game of catch. It's a lot more fun when your friend throws the ball back to you in a fun and exciting way, right? That's what ChatGPT does with text messages.

When sending text messages, you want them to be interesting so that people enjoy reading them and want to respond. ChatGPT is a super helper that can make your messages fun, interesting, and cool. It's like having a really creative friend helping you write your messages so that everyone loves reading them!

Translating that to why organizations should use ChatGPT?

  1. Quality: ChatGPT can help you create high-quality, engaging text messages that resonate with your audience.
  2. Efficiency: Save time by using ChatGPT to generate text message templates.
  3. Personalization: With ChatGPT, you can create personalized messages that make each recipient feel special.
  4. Versatility: Whether you're sending promotional messages, reminders, or updates, ChatGPT can help you craft the perfect message.

How Do I Get Started with ChatGPT?

Here is your super simple treasure map to get started on your ChatGPT adventure:

  1. Find the Treasure Map (Accessing ChatGPT): First, we must find our way to ChatGPT. It's like finding the entrance to a secret cave. You can do this by visiting the OpenAI website on your computer or tablet and signing up for a 100% free account.

  2. Say the Magic Words (Crafting Your Prompt): Once in the cave, we must say the magic words to wake up the ChatGPT. These magic words are called a "prompt." This is a fancy way of saying what you want ChatGPT to help you write. For example, you could say, "Help me write a story about a dragon and a unicorn." 

    Here's a great example of structuring a prompt to accomplish any task.

    Pretend you are a [ROLE] and do [TASK] for [AUDIENCE] in a tone that is [DESCRIBE TONE] and includes [ANY IMPORTANT INFO]. Ask me any questions that will help you achieve your task.
  3. Let the Magic Happen (Generating Your Message): After you say the magic words, ChatGPT will start to create your story. It's like magic! You'll see words appear on your screen that fit with what you asked for.

  4. Add Your Special Touch (Personalizing Your Message): Now, you can add your special touch to the story. You can change words, add new ideas, or make it funnier. If you don't like the story, ask ChatGPT to change the tone (more professional, target an audience of men in their 20s, make it funny, etc.) It's your story, so you can make it just how you like it! 

  5. Share the Treasure (Sending Your Message): Once you're happy with your story, you can share it with your friends or family. You can send it in a text message, an email, or even print it out and give it to them.

And that's it! You've just gone on an adventure with ChatGPT. Remember, the more you use it, the better you'll get at finding the treasure (creating awesome messages). Happy adventuring!

How do I use ChatGPT to create text message templates?

Hopefully, by now, you have a basic understanding of how to start using ChatGPT to improve your text messages. Creating a library of templates that you can use in various situations isn't hard at all. This example is for light industrial staffing agencies, but you can modify the prompt for any industry or use case. I used the prompt below and generated 50 text message templates for staffing agencies in just a few seconds!

Imagine that you're a recruiter at a temporary staffing agency specializing in light industrial staffing. You spend a lot of time sending text messages to candidates in your database that might be a good fit for jobs you're trying to fill for various clients. Give me a list of 50 text message templates that would help to find qualified candidates, engage candidates that aren't responding, quickly qualify candidates, and keep working candidates engaged.


Embracing ChatGPT is not just about improving the quality of your text messages; it's about empowering yourself to communicate more effectively and connect more deeply with your audience. So why wait? Start using ChatGPT today and take your text messaging to the next level!
