 Brainstorm Ideas with Chat GPT

What you need to know: Chat GPT is a language model designed to create written content much faster than every humans. 

If you are not sure how to use this revolutionary AI tool, don’t miss this blog post where we provide essential guidance on what you need to keep in mind before using it.

Here's what to do: Insert a clear command into Chat GPT and be detailed.

Share the Generated Content into a Google Spreadsheet

What you need to know: We will be transferring the content generated from Chat GPT into a format Canva supports, like a CSV file, which can be created using Microsoft Excel, Google Sheets, or Numbers.

Here's what to do: Open a Google Spreadsheet. Copy the relevant information from the language model and paste it in a Google Sheet. Ensure you:

Polish the content 

Remove any unnecessary data and make desired modifications to the written content.

Label the columns

Divide the content into two columns. Each column will be referred to as a “data field” from this point. Canva will recognize these as separate text sections to populate with your information.


Save in the Right Format

What you need to know: Canva's “Bulk Create” feature becomes available when you upload data via a CSV file. 

Here's what to do: Once your document is prepped, navigate to File / Download / Comma Separated Values (.csv).


Time to Bulk Create

What you need to know: Before diving in, open your aesthetic Canva template. Ensure it meets the required dimensions for your intended social media platform. For instance, a standard Instagram Post of 1080x1350.

Here's what to do: Let's break down the process:

  1. Open your design and position the two distinct data fields to link your content.

  2. Navigate to Apps and search for “Bulk Creation”.

  3. Upload your CSV file.

  4. Connect the data. 

  • Connect each section with the column. 

  • Ensure each section corresponds with the appropriate column in your CSV. Once done, confirm all connections and apply them to all pages. 


Review and Edit the Designs

By now, you should have a collection of beautifully crafted designs!

Here's what to do: Make the final touches to ensure your graphics are polished and aesthetically pleasing.


And there you have it — a simplified and efficient way to bulk create social media content using Chat GPT and Canva. No longer do you need to spend hours brainstorming, designing, and tweaking.
