Last week, OpenAI announced that you can start creating custom GPTs. Basically, your custom GPT is tailored to a specific task.
Some examples that OpenAI shared are Laundry Buddy — an expert on removing stains, and Game Time — which explains board games in simple terms.
When ChatGPT plugins came out, I had high expectations and was left disappointed.
None of them did anything exceptional.
So, when I heard about creating a GPT, I was curious to try it out, but had low expectations. There’s no coding required, and all you need is a ChatGPT Plus account.
Since I just finished creating a landing page course, it made sense to create a GPT for landing pages. I also have a decent amount of informational articles published on the topic.
Creating a custom GPT
This part is quick and easy.
You go to chat.openai.com/create and fill in the info like the name of your GPT and description.
Then you upload your specific knowledge to it.
I copied all of my landing page articles into a Google Doc and downloaded them as a PDF to upload to GPT.
I uploaded each article as an individual PDFs. It seems like you’re limited to uploaded 10 files (there was an error saving every time I tried to upload an 11th file).
I didn’t want the information to get “mixed together” but I don’t think there’d be any difference if I uploaded one PDF will all of my articles.
