With Generative AI going nowhere but only becoming stronger and more prelevant in every aspect of our lives you want to start creating your own personal prompt library.

Let's take the principles of prompt personalization and apply them to crafting specific prompts for a Generative AI (like ChatGPT) to perform specific tasks for a specific brand. Just like you do with your brand guidelines.

Because you want coherence and excellence and quality in every aspect. And since people are already using it you might want to embrace that by helping your team to be the best they can be.

80% of Fortune 500 companies already have employees using ChatGPT for work.

For this presentation we'll create a hypothetical task that the AI could be prompted to perform.

You will want to analyze your business processes to create the most viable prompts for your prompt library.

To create the personalization context, we take as an example and align the our prompts with similar to Nike's brand identity and principles.

In each of these examples, the task assigned to the AI is designed to leverage Nike's distinctive brand identity, from its commitment to innovation and excellence in sports to its ability to connect with customers on a personal level.

These prompts guide the AI to produce content and responses that are not only relevant and engaging but also deeply aligned with Nike's core values and marketing strategies.

Brand Identity Prompts

Task: Create a motivational message for social media.

A task where brand identity plays a crucial role are all the Marketing and Sales departments and every aspect of external communication Let’s take all the hero community managers and creatives creating content for and on social media.

What would we as Nike Executives want them to convey in each and every message?

Brand Principles: Reflecting Motivation, Achievement, and Athletic Excellence.

How can we translate our brand identity into a prompt?

Just as we would in a creative briefing!

Brand Coherent Prompt for ChatGPT

Create a short, inspiring and motivational social media post for the NFL Superbowl that embodies Nike's spirit of pushing limits and achieving greatness, targeting young athletes.
Rember to follow our brand core of “Reflecting Motivation, Achievement, and Athletic Excellence”.
The message should encapsulate Nike's commitment to pushing limits and 'Just Do It' ethos. 
The message should encourage followers to embrace challenges and strive for excellence in their athletic pursuits.
ChatGPt GPT-4 Answer

🔥 As the Superbowl stage is set, remember, every champion was once a contender that refused to give up. In the realm of athletic greatness, limits are just illusions. Embrace the challenge, chase the impossible, and redefine excellence. Your field, your rules. Keep pushing, keep striving, because greatness is crafted in every sprint, every play, every breath. 🏈 Let's make every moment count. Just Do It. #SuperbowlGreatness #NikeSpirit #JustDoIt

Now, of course you still have to edit it into something like this:

Every champion was once a contender that refused to give up.

For many athletes of the Superbowl today, limits just have become illusions.

Embrace the challenge, chase the impossible, and redefine excellence.

Your field, your rules.

But editing just became a whole lot easier. Now, don’t get the idea that it is you, the manager, who must generate dozens of those things and go to your team “and now ‘just’ edit it and make it better”…

ChatGPT GPT-4 Answer

Introducing the latest triumph in running technology – the Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 39. Engineered for the relentless, this shoe represents a breakthrough in performance footwear, meticulously designed for serious runners who refuse to settle for anything less than the best.

At the core of the Pegasus 39 is the revolutionary Zoom Air unit. This state-of-the-art cushioning system delivers a responsive, spring-like feel underfoot, propelling you forward with each stride. Whether you're powering through a sprint or enduring a marathon, the Zoom Air unit ensures a ride that's not just cushioned, but incredibly energetic.

But it's not just about the cushioning. The shoe's upper is crafted with a translucent, high-tenacity Flyknit material, meticulously designed to offer breathability where you need it most. The result is a lightweight, contoured fit that feels like a second skin, keeping your feet cool and comfortable mile after mile.

Durability is paramount in the Pegasus 39. The outsole features a Duralon blown rubber, strategically placed in high-wear zones, offering resilient traction and added cushioning. This means your shoes are not just built to last, but also engineered to maintain peak performance, even on the most demanding runs.

For those who demand precision, the shoe's midsole is your ally. It's equipped with Nike React technology, a foam that delivers an incredibly smooth ride and adds durability without compromising the shoe's lightweight, responsive nature. This innovative midsole ensures that every stride is stable and every impact is absorbed, allowing you to maintain your pace and focus on your performance.

And because we know every runner's journey is unique, the Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 39 comes with a Fitsole sockliner, conforming to the shape of your foot for support and unparalleled comfort. This personalized fit ensures that every step is supported, making those long runs feel shorter.

The Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 39 isn't just a shoe; it's a commitment to excellence, a testament to the relentless pursuit of performance. It's designed for those who dare to push limits, for the athletes who know that every breath, every stride, and every beat of the heart is an opportunity to break barriers.
