Artificial intelligence (AI) is undoubtedly one of the most exciting topics in the tech world today. These incredible systems have advanced rapidly in a short space of time. The technology is now at a point few would have dreamed possible only a few years ago.
There are new AI tools appearing all the time, but few have had an impact quite like ChatGPT. In recent news, ChatGPT is diving into the affiliate space by allowing users to search for coupon code opportunities. Let’s take a look at these ChatGPT coupon codes in more detail before discussing what this means for the wider affiliate industry.
What is ChatGPT?
ChatGPT is an AI-powered chatbot developed by OpenAI. It uses a large language model and harnesses the power of neural networks, machine learning and natural language processing to read, understand and reply to human questions and queries.
The speed and accuracy of the replies ChatGPT can generate are nothing short of astonishing. It can provide responses to questions on any subject you can think of and can hold extensive, eerily human-like conversations. In January 2023, the platform exceeded 100 million monthly users.
How Can it Be Used by Affiliate Marketers?
ChatGPT was launched in 2022 and rapidly adopted by a wide range of industries. The affiliate marketing sector was no exception, marketers were quick to realise the potential offered by this incredible new software and wasted no time integrating it into their operations and processes.
ChatGPT can be used by affiliate marketers to draft emails, product descriptions, press releases, blogs and newsletters. It can also be used to proofread copy, and even come up with new ideas for content and campaigns.
The software can also be integrated with Google Analytics to allow users to analyse data more accurately and with greater efficiency.
ChatGPT Coupon Codes
While AI tools like Google Bard are increasingly popular, ChatGPT is by far the most established and well-known. It would appear that OpenAI intends to keep things this way, as they have recently added a slew of new features to their flagship product.
One of these in particular will have significant implications for the affiliate marketing industry: users can now search for coupon codes in ChatGPT.
This was impossible in earlier versions of the chatbot, but the inclusion of the feature will now open up a host of new AI-powered affiliate marketing opportunities. Using plug-ins, coupon list sites and publishers will now be able to display offers in ChatGPT search results.
However, what sets this apart from standard search engines is that ChatGPT can ask questions of consumers to better understand what they’re looking for and deliver more relevant, personalised results.
For example, the chatbot could ask about a consumer’s budget preferences or whether they have shopped at a particular platform before, and then tailor responses depending on the answer they give.
What these ChatGPT coupon codes will do is give affiliates the chance to further upsell and market codes and offers to consumers at search engine level. For consumers, it will make searching for codes an active experience, rather than a passive one. They’ll be communicating with the chatbot to personalise the results they see.
As things stand, the feature is only available to ChatGPT Plus subscribers. Whether it will be rolled out to users of the free version in the future remains to be seen.
