Catalog Management

Short description for products

Product content drives sales: 87% of shoppers rate product content as very important when they make a decision to buy. A detailed product description is in top-3 key elements of product content, according to Salsify.

Save yourself time on writing product descriptions. With the AI Assistant module, you can easily create a product description and generate a short product description with a brief highlight of the product's main features.

The output can be automatically converted to HTML when required. For example, Magento expects product descriptions in HTML format. Simply activate the HTML option in the prompt configuration.

Generate meta title, meta keywords, and meta description in one click for any of your products. All you need is to configure respective prompts for the AI Assistant extension.

Blogging and social media

Catchy titles for your blog article

A great blog article can attract many more readers if it has a catchy title. For example, you may want to avoid such words as "best" or "always" in your titles. In fact, average click-through rate on headlines with negative superlatives is a 63% higher than that of their positive counterparts.

The AI Assistant can help you to generate blog titles that attract readers.

Short description for your blog article

Typically you will need an excerpt of your blog article content. This short description is displayed on the blog main page, related articles block, etc.

AI Assistant extension will use ChatGPT to generate an article excerpt in a second.

Meta tags for your blog articles

Since a blog is another essential tool that drives your sales by organically generating leads, you should maintain its SEO.

Save your time and leave it for ChatGPT to write meta title, meta keywords, and meta description for your blog articles.

Writing tweets for you

Social media is an important channel to increase your sales. If your post goes viral on social media, your store may see a spike in visitors and sales. Stores that actively post in social media have 32% more sales on average.

Email Newsletter

With AI Assistant, creating professional email newsletters is a breeze. Simply provide a list of key points, and the module generates a well-written email newsletter in no time.

The module has a predefined prompt for the newsletter subject and the email content.

Automated prompt execution

Any prompt you have created for a text-related task can be executed automatically. This can be handy, for example, when you regularly add new products to your catalog and you need to fill their SEO meta tags, product short descriptions, etc.

Create a set of automation rules and configure Cron to execute them by schedule.

Each rule is applied when a set of conditions you configure are met. For example, you can apply one prompt for a specific product type and another prompt - to a second product type. A third prompt can have no conditions, and it will be applied to every product.

How to use AI Assistant for any text-related task

The AI Assistant extension is very helpful right out of the box due to a number of predefined prompts for GPT3/ChatGPT. However, you are free to customize and create new prompts for any task related to text writing in your store.

How AI Assistant works

The AI Assistant extension is based on the power of the GPT-3/ChatGPT neural network. This network generates a well-written text from a small text prompt that describes the task. For example, for the prompt What should I wear in winter the ChatGPT will write several paragraphs of text explaining what clothing a human should put on in winter.

AI Assistant extension provides a convenient interface within Magento admin that allows sending to ChatGPT a specific task. Each task is configured as a prompt for ChatGPT. See the list of prompt examples the AI Assistant provides out of the box.

Default prompts the AI Assistant ships with are blocked from editing to ensure the extension work stability.

In case you need to edit a default prompt duplicate it and deactivate the original. You can freely edit the duplicate.

AI Assistant prompts basics

Prompts consist of two parts: a static part and variables. Static part is the task for the ChatGPT, for example, to write a newsletter. Variables are written as {{variable_name}} and they allow to include already existing data in the prompt. See the list of available variables to use in your prompts.

For example, use variables to send post title and content to ChatGPT.

To see the final prompt with variables replaced with their values you may click on the prompt name above the ChatGPT reply:

This prompt was configured with variables:

Customer Name: {{ticket.customer}}
There is a last message from customer:
Write an personal message that explain next things:
Write in the same language as the initial text:

When this prompt was sent to ChatGPT the variables were replaced with values and the prompt looked like this:

Customer Name: Ann Peterson
There is a last message from customer:
I see. Thanks.
Write an personal message that explain next things:

Write in the same language as the initial text:

Prompt fields

To create a prompt for AI Assistant you need to fill up a list of predefined fields.

  • Active. Activates the prompt to be accessible for usage.
  • Code. Prompt identifier to be used by the extension.
  • Title. Prompt name that is visible in the Magento admin to the user.

  • Prompt. Contains a short prompt for ChatGPT. Use variables here to adjust the ChatGPT response to the specific request.
  • Frequency penalty. This value controls the tendency for repeating words in the output. It can be from 0 to 1. When a value is lower words will be repeated more frequently.
  • Scopes. To avoid mixing of the prompts the AI Assistant allows choosing a scope for the prompt: product, blog, ticket. If a prompt scope is set to Blog, it will be available on pages related to blog. When a scope is set to Product the prompt will be available on pages related to products. Ticket scope reserves the prompt to customer support tickets.
  • Field Selectors. Specify a Magento field in which the extension will insert the ChatGPT output. You can use multiple field selectors in one prompt.

How to get a field selector name

One of the ways to get the field selector name is to look it up in the source code of the Magento admin page that has the field you need.

For example, to get a field selector name for the blog post text in your Magento admin open any blog post and click right mouse button on the post content area.

Select option Inspect code and the browser will open its developer tools to highlight the HTML code of the field you want to inspect.

Write down the type and the name of the element. In case of the blog post content these are textarea name="content".

Return to the prompt configuration page and set the field selector as .blog-post-edit textarea[name="content"].

  • Sort order. Sets the prompt position in the grid of prompts.
  • Open in a window. When it is set to No, the ChatGPT output immediately replaces the original text. When it is set to Yes, you will have a preview window.

  • Help text. Any additional information for ChatGPT to use when generating the output. For example, for an SEO meta title prompt, a help text may be to omit using such words as excellent, best, or revolutionary.
  • Convert output to HTML. Activate it if the output text should be formatted as HTML.

Example 1: Get spellchecking for blog articles with AI Assistant

You would definitely want the perfect grammar and spelling for your blog articles. Sites with the sloppy grammar have 85% higher bounce rate than sites who publish spell-checked content. Some website owners report that a single spelling mistake on a page can cut sales in half.

The prompt for revising grammar for blog post is not available in AI Assistant out of the box. So we need to create one.

Create a prompt for blog article spellcheck

Navigate to System > AI Assistant > Prompts and add a new prompt or duplicate an existing one.

Code fixgrblog
Title fix_gr_blog

Help Text
Convert output to HTML No

We have determined field selectors for this prompt for cases when Page Builder is enabled and disabled.

In Page Builder the button for prompt activation will appear when you enter in a text edit mode.

For Page Builder use the selector value .blog-post-edit textarea[name="html"]. For HTML editor use .blog-post-edit textarea[name="content"].

You may include both field selectors in one prompt. Separate the field selectors with coma.

Use the prompt for fixing a blog post grammar

Having an active prompt for fixing a blog post grammar, in your Magento admin open the post you want to correct and click on the prompt activation button.

See how ChatGPT fixes all the misspelled words that were underlined by the browser spellcheck.

With such prompt you can easily and quickly fix the grammar and spelling of all your blog posts, which may lead to increased conversion rate.

Example 2: Automatically translate blog articles with AI Assistant

Posting content, like product descriptions or blog articles, on multiple languages is a simple way to increase your audience. For example, 60% of shoppers don’t buy from english-only websites.

Let’s create a prompt to automatically translate blog post from English to German.
