ChatGPT has been all over my Twitter feed these last two weeks. So I had to give it a try. And it’s pretty mind blowing. You can try it out by creating an account with OpenAI.
From idea to sales in just 36 hours. This is what Bram did with his new project: My Pitch Deck. With this product, AI will create for you a 10 slide pitch deck for your startup. As a bonus, you will also receive the list of the most asked questions by VCs and some personal tips to help you nail your pitch and secure your investment round. For this project, Bram used the following stack:
Carrd for the website: still one of the easiest way to create a great website for your project
Zapier for automation (consider also Make as an alternative)
Stripe for payments
Google Docs & Gmail for delivery
It’s crazy to think you can launch a project like this in less than two days now that we have access to so many no-code & AI tools.
Typefully is the best tool to write content for Twitter. As so many tools these days, it now uses AI to help you write better tweets. This writing assistant (named Vesper) will be able to rewrite your tweets in different styles, give you tweet ideas (goodbye writer’s block) and also give you some feedback on how to improve your content.
On the same topic, you can also check Postwise, a new AI tool to write content optimised for engagement on Twitter.
Craft (one of my favorite iOS app) also introduced its AI assistant, now available to all Craft users, regardless of their subscription plan.
Ready is a new calendar tool. It wants to help you supercharge your meetings, by turning the actual calendar invite into a collaborative workspaces where you can add notes, tables, content, to-do lists etc
