ChatGPT prompts to find your next big opportunity
Identify emerging trends
There are things on the horizon that could mark big news for you and your business. Find out what they are. Leverage ChatGPT to sift through global data, helping you pinpoint new patterns that could signal emerging market trends. Think about how they might apply to your current business or next move. Use this prompt with internet-enabled ChatGPT.
“Assume the role of a business analyst. Identify emerging market trends related to [your industry/business sector]. Analyze recent global news, social media trends, and market reports from the past six months. Focus on areas such as technological advancements, consumer behavior shifts, and new market entrants. Summarize the key trends and explain how they are impacting my business in [specific business area or industry], and the changes I can make today to capitalize on them.”
Conduct a customer deep dive
Identify your next big opportunity by finding out what your customers want, and what they are willing to pay for. The more you know about what they say, why they sign up, and how they make their buying decisions, the more you know what they will need going forward. Use ChatGPT to dissect vast amounts of customer feedback, giving you a comprehensive view of your target demographic’s needs and desires. Use this prompt with Advanced Data Analysis switched on.
“Analyze the attached spreadsheet containing customer feedback for [your business name]. Focus on comments related to customer satisfaction, reasons for sign-up, purchasing behaviors, and specific product or service feedback. Identify common themes, patterns, and any recurring suggestions or complaints. Provide a detailed analysis of customer needs, preferences, and potential areas for improvement or innovation in our offerings. Also, assess any trends in customer willingness to pay for certain features or services. Summarize your findings in a way that highlights actionable insights for our business strategy and product development plans going forward.”
Find gaps in the market
Once it knows what you do and who you do it for, ChatGPT can assist you in analyzing market data and consumer demands to uncover niches or needs that are currently underserved. Find those gaps in the market and fill them with your product or service. Make more impact and make more money by going where no one else has thought to go. Enter the space with a bang and do your thing. It could mark a step change in your business and career.
“Based on the analysis of emerging market trends and customer feedback previously provided, identify potential gaps in the market for my business and industry. Consider both the current consumer demands and the trends identified to pinpoint niches or needs that are not adequately addressed by existing products or services. Explore opportunities for innovation or differentiation in these areas. Recommend strategies for my business to enter these market gaps effectively and make a significant impact. Also, provide insights on how filling these gaps could benefit my business financially and in terms of market positioning.”
Understand public perception
There are two ways of doing this. First, employ internet-enabled ChatGPT to gauge sentiment and public opinion on social media or other platforms. If your brand isn’t yet large enough for sufficient data to prevail, find out what people are saying about the problem you solve. This analysis will provide you with a clear picture of either how your brand or product is perceived, or how your target audience talks about the problem you solve for them. Both are useful for finding new opportunities.
“Search for social media mentions and online discussions about [your brand/product name]. If there is insufficient data or mentions due to the size of my brand, instead search for discussions and sentiments related to [specific problem your product/service solves]. Analyze the tone, sentiment, and key themes in these discussions. Provide insights into how my brand/product is perceived if applicable, or how the target audience talks about and experiences the problem I aim to solve. Summarize the findings to highlight public perception and potential opportunities for my business in addressing these needs or improving brand perception.”
Predict the future
Pretty soon, ChatGPT will be totally up to date with current affairs. When that happens, you’ll have information that you can use in your favour. Ask for industry data to forecast key market shifts and keep your business strategy proactive. Be a few months or years ahead of anyone else in your field by interpreting what any shifts mean for your industry. Use the information to give yourself a continuous head start.
“Analyze the latest industry data and current affairs to forecast upcoming trends and market shifts in [your industry/business sector]. Focus on technological advancements, consumer behavior changes, economic factors, and any emerging patterns that could significantly impact the industry in the next 18-24 months. Interpret what these shifts mean for my industry over the long term and how they could influence market dynamics. Based on this analysis, provide recommendations on how my business can stay ahead of the curve, capitalize on these opportunities, and maintain longevity and a competitive edge.”
