CREATE Method Framework
- C: Character – Define the Al’s role. E.g., “You are a seasoned copywriter with 20 years of experience in successful sales copy.”
- R: Request – Be specific with what you need. Instead of “Write a sales email for a sports car,” specify, “Write a compelling email for the Cougar Hyper Sport, an electric car with top-tier acceleration.”
- E: Examples – Optionally, provide samples for more precise results. Headlines or tone examples can guide the Al’s style.
- A: Adjustments – Refine the prompt if it’s not perfect. Use instructions like, “Avoid bullet points; use subheads.”
- T: Type of Output – Describe the desired format. E.g., “Produce a 500-word article with a title and conclusion.”
