Step 1: Open Bing chat in the Microsoft Edge browser
To use ChatGPT 4 for free, you need to open Bing chat in the Microsoft Edge browser. Bing chat is a feature that allows you to chat with ChatGPT directly from your browser, while logged in to your personal Microsoft account. I also tried this with a company account and Bing chat was unavailable. Without being logged in, you might have limited experience in the number of responses, etc.
To open Bing chat, follow these steps:
- Open the Microsoft Edge browser on your computer or mobile device.
- Sign in using your personal Microsoft account using the profile icon in the top right corner.
- Go to https://www.bing.com/chat
- Click on the chat icon at the bottom right corner of the screen.
- A chat window will pop up where you can start chatting with ChatGPT.
- Choose a conversation style. Use Balanced for research and creative for generating content:
Step 2: Write a prompt
What is a prompt, you ask?
A prompt is a text that you write to start a conversation with ChatGPT. It can be a question, an instruction, a topic, or anything else that you want ChatGPT to respond to. For example, if you want to ask ChatGPT to write a listing description, you can write:
Write a compelling listing description for a 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom townhouse close to the Las Vegas Strip, with a balcony and HOA pool.
ChatGPT will then reply with something like:
You can write any prompt that you want, as long as it is clear and relevant. You can also use emojis, punctuation marks, and formatting to make your prompt more expressive.
Note: We are just working on follow-up articles about structuring and modifying your prompts for different types of tasks. Also, we will post the 10 most useful prompts for realtors and real estate agents next week.
Step 3: Read the response
After you write a prompt and press enter, ChatGPT will generate a response based on its knowledge and creativity. The response will appear below your prompt in the chat window. You can read the response and see if it answers your prompt satisfactorily.
Sometimes, ChatGPT might write a response that is incorrect, nonsensical, or inappropriate. ChatGPT sometimes makes mistakes or misunderstands your prompt. If this happens, you can either ignore the response and try a different prompt, or ask ChatGPT to explain or correct itself.
Step 4: Continue the conversation
You can continue the conversation with ChatGPT by writing another prompt or following up on the previous response. For example, if you want to make the listing descriptions from the example above shorter, you can reply:
Make the description about 50 words long.
ChatGPT will then reply with something like:
You can keep chatting with ChatGPT as long as you want, or until you run out of prompts or interest. You can also switch topics or tasks at any time by writing a new prompt.
Here are some basic tips and best practices for newbies who want to use ChatGPT effectively:
- Be clear and specific when writing prompts. Avoid vague or ambiguous prompts that might confuse ChatGPT or lead to irrelevant responses.
- Be curious and creative when chatting with ChatGPT. Explore different topics and tasks that interest you or challenge you. We will soon post an article about prompt modifiers that can change the content and tone of the responses.
- Be cautious and critical when reading responses. Don’t blindly trust or accept everything that ChatGPT says. Verify the facts and sources, and use your own judgment and common sense.
Now that you know how to use ChatGPT, why not give it a try? ChatGPT can be a great tool for real estate professionals who want to save time, improve their skills, and grow their businesses. You can use ChatGPT to:
- Find answers to your questions about the market, the properties, the clients, etc.
- Generate catchy headlines, slogans, or listing descriptions.
- Summarize articles, reports, or contracts for your own reference or for your clients.
- Write professional and persuasive emails, messages, or proposals to communicate with your clients or prospects.
