A short guide to feedback in content design (by ChatGPT-4)
This post was written by guest contributor, the cutting-edge artificial intelligence GPT-4. We gave it a light polish, and deleted some waffle. Just like we would with a human writer.
We didn’t need to change much at all. We did this as an experiment, to put GPT-4 through its paces, and learn how to get the best out of it. In a companion blog post, we discuss exactly what we did.
A short guide to feedback in content design
Feedback helps make your content better. Here’s how to ask for, give, and get feedback in content design.
Asking for feedback
- Be clear: tell people what you want feedback on, for example how easy it is to read, or if it's useful.
- Share details: explain what your content is for, who it's for, and what you want it to do.
- Set a time: give people a deadline to send you their feedback.
- Pick the right people: choose people who know your audience or the topic well.
- Be helpful: tell people what they can do better and what they're already doing well.
- Be clear: give examples and ideas to help them improve.
- Be kind: remember that they worked hard on their content. Be nice when giving feedback.
- Focus on the content: talk about the content and its goals, not just your personal likes or dislikes.
- Be open: think of feedback as a chance to learn. Don't take it personally.
- Think about the feedback: look at who gave the feedback and why before making changes.
- Choose what to change: find the most important feedback and work on it first.
- Ask questions: if you don't understand something, ask for more information.
