Before we start, make sure you have:

  • Access to ChatGPT Plus (paid version) or ChatGPT Enterprise.


Step 1: Accessing GPTs

  1. Log in to your ChatGPT Plus or Enterprise account.
  2. Look out for the new layout, which indicates the availability of custom GPT features. If it’s not there yet, sit tight until the rollout reaches you.


Step 2: Creating Your Custom GPT

  1. Head over to the ‘Explore’ tab in your account.
  2. Click on ‘My GPTs’ to either create a new GPT or modify existing ones.


Step 3: Defining Your GPT

  1. Hit ‘Create’ to start shaping your custom GPT.
  2. Enter a prompt that describes your ideal GPT, like “I want to create a GPT that’s an AI guru with up-to-the-minute AI knowledge.”


Step 4: Customizing Features

  1. Name your GPT and pick or design a logo that represents it.
  2. Focus your GPT on specific areas, whether it’s AI applications, training, or trends.
  3. Choose the tone for your GPT’s responses – formal, casual, friendly, you name it.
  4. Pinpoint topics your GPT should avoid, like giving medical or legal advice.


Step 5: Advanced Configuration

  1. Enhance your GPT’s knowledge by uploading custom data files like PDFs or scripts.
  2. Switch on advanced features such as web browsing, image creation, and code interpretation.
  3. Set up conversation starters to guide how users interact with your GPT.


Step 6: Integrating Third-Party Services

  1. Employ tools like Zapier to broaden your GPT’s skill set.
  2. Configure AI agents for web tasks, like firing off emails.


Step 7: Testing and Refining

  1. Use the conversation starters you set up to put your GPT to the test.
  2. Tweak and refine its responses and functionalities to meet your exact needs.


Step 8: Deployment Options

  1. Decide whether to keep your GPT private, share it with select folks, or go public.
  2. If you’re thinking public, eye the upcoming GPT store – it might even have some revenue-sharing perks.


Step 9: Linking to Your Domain (For Public GPTs)

  1. If you’re going public in the GPT store, link up your domain to attract leads.
  2. Follow the steps to verify your domain as part of the setup.


Additional Tips

  • Keep up with AI trends to keep your GPT cutting-edge.
  • Mull over the ethical side of your GPT’s tasks and information.
  • Regularly update your GPT with fresh data and insights to keep it relevant and effective.
