You can use GPT-4 for your content production needs, but there are some things that you should be aware of.
GPT-4, whilst fun, GPT-4 has limitations. There are currently only 50 interactions alllowed per three hour period. This might sound like a lot but if you are using GPT-4 heavily you will encounter this limit.
You then have to leave it alone for 3 hours before you can continue with your work! If you don't have dealines and time constraints this is fine.
If you want to get a lot of work done fast (ie, do what AI excels at) then you definitley will want to consider dedicated writing software such as Jasper or Writesonic which will not put a limit on your outputs, depending on the package that you choose.
The pink message of death, meaning you must go and have a cup of tea for 3 hours! Not always ideal.
In contrast, platforms like Jasper, designed with content creation at their core, often allow you to more extended outputs, streamlining the creation process and minimizing disruptions to your workflow.
Where do you get GPT-4?
For those who are new to ChatGPT, the best place to begin is at openai.com. Sign up for a free account to have access to GPT-3.
To utilise GPT-4, users must subscribe to ChatGPT Plus, a $20 monthly membership that provides premium access to the site.
The Risk of Homogenized Content
GPT-4, while versatile, operates based on patterns it recognizes from its vast training data. As a result, there's a potential risk that the content it produces, if overly relied upon by many users, might become homogenized or generic over time.
The distinct voice or style that individual bloggers bring to their work could be overshadowed by the familiar, boring tone of the AI.
Jasper, or similar platforms, provides you with tools or features that help maintain or even enhance a blogger's unique voice, ensuring that the content remains fresh and authentic.
Difficulty creating long-form content
One of the foremost limitations of GPT-4 is its message length cap. This cap restricts the length of content that can be generated in a single request, making it difficult for users to produce longer blog posts seamlessly.
The process can become fragmented, meaning that you end up having to make multiple requests and then stitch together the content in a cohesive manner. This interruption can impede the natural flow of the writing process and can be particularly cumbersome if you are aiming to quickly craft long-form content or detailed analyses.
GPT-4 is actually getting quite stupid!
I use GPT-4 a lot, as well as other tools and I can tell you from personal experience that it is becoming more stupid.
It now seems incapable of following basic instructions and is frankly getting to the point where it can be unuseable. It alters text for no reason. Or misses out parts.
For a time saving tool, having to repeat yourself time and time again and correct the thing becomes massively frustrating.
Over the last few months (August, September, October 2023) all the time I hear from it: "I apologise for the oversight..." as it makes mistakes on simple instructions ALL THE TIME.
If you want a reliable writing assistant, this is not it.
