Get the best results

Use natural language

Talk to Gemini just like you would a friend or colleague. 

Instead of...

"Training plan."

Try this...

"Write a training plan for the sales team for the launch of a brand new product."

Be clear and concise

Gemini can follow precise instructions, so avoid using ambiguous language.

Instead of...

"Marketing talking points."

Try this...

"Give me 12 thoughtful questions to ask a Chief Marketing Officer on their strategy for 2024."

Provide context

The more context you give to Gemini, the better it can understand your request and generate a useful response.

Instead of...

"Write about a sales job."

Try this...

"Write a job description for a [job title], including the required skills and experience, as well as a summary of [company name] and the position."

Use specific and relevant keywords

Gemini can understand the meaning of individual words and phrases. Using specific and relevant keywords in your prompt will help the AI generate a more accurate and informative response.

Instead of...

"Create project plan."

Try this...

"Create a project plan for the launch of a brand new product. The timeframe should be from now until June 2024."

Break down complex tasks into separate prompts

If you want Gemini to perform several related tasks, break them apart into separate prompts. This helps the AI understand the task and provide useful responses.
