Why your expertise is about to become the next hot commodity
But quietly, we’re seeing one other trend emerge: a next level of prompting, centered around translating expertise.
Today we’re going to talk about the value of that expertise.
First, a poll -
Do you like writing prompts?
Ok so without spoiling the result … the reality is, most people don’t want to write prompts. It's a task that requires time, iteration, and most importantly - really knowing what you want the model to do.
But here's the kicker: that last part - really knowing what you want the model to do - is about to become the next hot commodity in AI.
Why? Because creating good prompts isn’t just about writing a question for an AI to answer. It's about teaching an AI system to do a task how you’d want it done.
And to do that - you need to know how you want it done.
The best prompt engineers for content creation are all copywriters.
The best prompt engineers for sales are all salespeople.
… and so on.
Our two cents? Focus on developing that intersection.
As AI models become more powerful, and able to do more for us - articulating what you want done and how you want it done won’t become less important. If anything, it will become more.
