Making your own custom frameworks or templates is what makes Closerscopy truly special. It was the first to offer this feature to its customers among all AI writing tools/apps out there fyi!
So why should you make your own frameworks/templates when we already have pre-built frameworks inside Closerscopy?
Well, you don't HAVE to if you're already happy with the results you get from the existing frameworks :) But customizing your own allows you to tailor your output to the style, format, and quality that you need for your own usecase.
For example, writing social media posts. You want to come up with engaging captions that seem like they're written by the same person each time for consistency with a specific style and format unique to you. Can you do this with the pre-built frameworks or with any generic AI writing tool?
That's why you'd want to make your own custom framework/templates inside Closerscopy.
Another example for when you'd need a customized option is when you're creating content geared towards a specific niche. For example, you may be a real estate agent who needs to generate copy to use in helping you sell your clients' properties.
So, let's take the last example and build out a custom framework for creating an ad copy of a property listing.
Start with these steps:
- Gather 2-3 examples of the style of writing you're looking for - whether it be from something you've written yourself or from another person whose work you admire.
- Ask yourself, what would you have given the AI as input to generate an output like your example?
- Format your input and your output in a way that it's understandable to the AI what you're asking for. There's no specific format or rule for this. Just make it clear that your input and output are separate and not a continuation of each other.
- Type in "###" in between each example to let the AI know that these are separate examples.
- After your last example, once again type in "###" and then start off the sequence again, but with nothing for the output section.
- Select all of the text you've written, and right click to use the "AI" (formerly called "instruct") feature. You CAN try GPT-3 if you want, but "AI" usually works better for this.
- Evaluate your output. Is it not quite what you're looking for? Try repeating Step 6 again. See if you get better results this time around since the AI will never output great results 100% of the time. Repeat the process a few more times to see if you're getting the output you desire. If you get good results a few times in a row, then your custom template is ready to go.
- I recommend saving this as a template rather than a framework right away, since having it in the template format makes it easier to edit and experiment with changes later on. To do this, select the entire text again and right click. You should see an option called "Save". Do this and you will be able to access all your saved templates under the "Library" section -> "Templates" -> "My Templates".
- If you wish, you can now covert this into a Framework by copying and pasting the examples into the Framework builder. Check out that process in Nico's demo video here.
- Now you're done!
How does this work? Well, the AI LOVES patterns. So when you feed it these examples, it's going to notice a pattern and it will try to keep that pattern going with its output.
So now you've read the steps above, let's put it into practice for that real estate property listing framework we discussed above.
We'll gather a few examples of property descriptions we like.
