Will ChatGPT rob you of your job? Handling the bot’s disruption in the creator economy

Chat GPT

Ever had a rough day at work and felt like you could use a little help with the workload? You know, when your deadlines are catching up, you’re sleep deprived, running on caffeine, and just wish that there was someone who could do all your work for you. Thanks to Artificial Intelligence (AI), you may have just found that someone, or rather, something – ChatGPT.


The chatbot that has changed the game

Not too late after its launch in November of 2022, the AI-powered ChatGPT has gained massive popularity across the world. This Natural Language Processing (NLP) software is trained to converse with human input and was trained & developed with exposure to a huge dataset of human language and speech. The software was formulated by an AI research laboratory named OpenAI that was started in 2015 and co-founded by Sam Altman and Elon Musk. 


This chatbot is both terrifying and fascinating because, in addition to being human-like, all of its responses are relevant and perfectly contextual. The software has been exposed to human interactions and the patterns that occur within them. Due to this, people around the world can use it to cook up something that seems remarkably authentic and perfectly relevant in just a couple of minutes. From students using it to do their assignments to influencers using it for Instagram captions, ChatGPT can produce a variety of textual content based on the input given. This bot can write a song, a cover letter or an essay with just a prompt.


Many refer to the bot as a double-edged sword due to its myriad of pros and cons. While it can aid in improving the productivity of copywriters by helping them save time on extensive research, it may affect the jobs of professionals including journalists, content writers, and customer service representatives, among many others. It can generate ad copies and website content with great speed and precision, but this may come at the expense of being exposed to false information based on what’s fed to the machine learning model. Similarly, students can leverage this technology to learn more effectively and access pertinent information for their assignments, but it may also foster academic dishonesty by enabling them to resort to shortcuts instead of researching voluntarily. Undoubtedly, the bot is a valuable repository of knowledge and insights. However, it also carries a risk of being used mischievously to spread misinformation or create fake news.


ChatGPT and the creator economy

This new technology can certainly help improve efficiency in a large array of industries by automating mundane tasks, making data analysis a breeze and information evaluation quick. Especially when it comes to content creation and influencer marketing, there is a looming fear that jobs in the creator economy might be in danger. 


The advancements in AI, especially ChatGPT, have become a new player in the creator community due to its ability to produce appropriate content for brands such as website content, blogs, captions and more. Since AI can do what creators do but for a lesser cost and in a more time-effective manner, the chances of employment opportunities falling are greater. This has left influencers, journalists, coders, authors and other creators in fear of becoming easily replaceable.


Beating the Bot

If you are a content creator and wondering if it is possible to fight this new tech monster coming at your job, here’s how you can not just survive the storm but thrive in it:


Being human

There is still some hope in knowing that although ChatGPT and other artificial intelligence tools may be able to communicate and perform like a human, they are NOT human. A few of the things that only we, as humans, possess are creativity and emotions. At the end of the day, your creative ability, your unique perception, and your complicated thought process are weapons that can help you fight the bots and keep your job. Upskilling and building your creativity are the best ways to increase what you have to offer as someone who is part of the creator economy.


Finding your niche

As a creator, developing niche content will not only help you fight AI but also build a specific platform by taking advantage of your strengths. ChatGPT cannot produce specific or niche content since it is trained on the basis of a larger dataset and may not be exposed to sufficient relevant data.


Harnessing the power of the bot

The best way to beat the bot is to make it your ally. Embracing AI tools will help you learn how you can use them to be more efficient while you focus on being an integral creative perspective. This technology can not only help create content faster but can also help smaller teams be more productive. ChatGPT, when used right, has the potential to aid in influencer marketing by making the work easier, especially when creators are in need of inspiration to get over that creative block.


At the end of the day, creators have the upper hand to use the bot to get better. Once you’ve learned to work with tools such as ChatGPT to create a name for yourself in a niche market, you don’t have to fret about becoming obsolete.
