How do I use "Special instructions for AI"?

In your project editor, visit Options > (Optional) Advanced AI settings.

The "Special Instructions for AI" field is designed to help you tailor the AI's output to meet your specific needs. However, to ensure the best results, it's crucial to keep these instructions concise and focused. Overloading the field with too many instructions can lead to incomplete or inaccurate responses due to the current limitations of Large Language Models (LLMs).

Here’s how you can effectively use the special instructions field and examples you can copy/paste.

Best Practices

  1. Be Concise: Keep your instructions short and to the point. Avoid lengthy and complex instructions that may overwhelm the AI.

  2. Prioritize Key Points: Focus on the most important aspects you want the AI to consider. Avoid adding too many requirements that could compete with BlitzBear's existing core prompts.

  3. Use Clear Language: Write in clear, unambiguous language to reduce the chances of misinterpretation.

  4. Limit the Number of Instructions: Aim to include only a few critical instructions. Too many rules can reduce the effectiveness of the AI.

Examples of Effective Instructions

Here are some examples of special instructions you can use. Feel free to copy and paste them into your "Special Instructions for AI" field:

Example 1: Setting the Writing Tone

Please write in a friendly and conversational tone suitable for a general audience.

Example 2: Simplifying Language

Write at a 9th-grade reading level to ensure accessibility for all readers.

Example 3: Industry-Specific Terminology

Use industry-specific terms common in eCommerce when explaining concepts.

Example 4: Focused Content Request

Provide a brief summary of the content, highlighting the key takeaways.

Example 5: Formatting Guidance

Format the response with bullet points for easy reading.

Avoiding Common Pitfalls
