What is OpenAI?
OpenAI is a cool AI research lab that has a for-profit corporation called OpenAI LP and a non-profit parent company called OpenAI Inc. Their goal is to make sure that AI is used to help people. They do really awesome research in AI and make AI products and tools for businesses.
What is Zapier?
Zapier is a web-based automation tool that connects your favorite apps, such as Airtable, ClickUp, and Gmail, to automate repetitive tasks. Zapier allows you to create workflows, called Zaps, that automate your business processes and save you time. Zapier integrates with over 2,000 apps, including OpenAI.
How OpenAI and Zapier Work Together
OpenAI’s GPT-3 language model can generate human-like text based on a prompt. Zapier can automate the process of sending a prompt to OpenAI and receiving the generated text. By combining the two, you can create a workflow that generates blog post outlines based on a prompt.
Setting Up the Automation
To set up the automation, you’ll need to create accounts with OpenAI and Zapier. Then follow these steps:
- Create an Airtable base for your blog post outlines. Include columns for the title, topic, subtopics, due date, and published date.
- Set up a Zap in Zapier that triggers when a new record is added to the Airtable base.
- Configure the Zap to send a prompt to OpenAI based on the topic and subtopics in the Airtable record.
- Configure the Zap to create a task in ClickUp with the generated outline.
- Test the Zap to make sure it’s working properly.
- Publish and turn on the Zap.
Keep in mind that the prompt may take some time to generate, so don’t expect it to be immediate. However, once the prompt is generated, the outline will appear in ClickUp.
By following this tutorial, you’ll not only be able to streamline your blog post outlining process but also boost your productivity. With more time on your hands, you can focus on creating even more high-quality content for your audience.
