La capsula Informativa: A Communicator’s Guide to Generative AI: Ethically Boost Your Productivity and Stay Ahead of the Curve

Finally, developing a strong understanding of how generative AI works, its strengths and limitations and best practices for prompt engineering is crucial to ensure the content created is not only compelling and effective but also aligned with your brand voice and values.

At the heart of effectively harnessing generative AI lies the critical skill of prompt engineering. Put simply, prompt engineering is the art and science of designing the right inputs or “prompts” to guide the AI model toward generating the desired output.

A well-crafted prompt provides the AI with clear instructions, sets the appropriate context and defines the parameters for the content the communications professional wants it to create. By becoming skilled prompt engineers, PR and communications pros can unlock the full potential of generative AI tools, ensuring  the content they produce is not only relevant and engaging but also aligned with their specific goals and brand voice.

There are countless schools of thought and prompt frameworks, each with their own unique applications. One simple framework we often recommend comes from Trust Insights: RACE.

Standing for Role, Action, Context and Expectation, this easy-to-remember framework contains all the key components of an effective AI prompt.

Role: Define the role you want the AI to assume, which could range from specific professions (e.g., “Data Analyst”) to conceptual personas (e.g., “Innovative Chef”). This sets the tone and direction for the AI’s responses, ensuring they are aligned with the intended perspective or expertise.

Action: Clearly articulate the specific action or task you want the AI to undertake. This could be anything from generating ideas (e.g., “develop marketing strategies”) to creating content (e.g., “write a summary of recent tech advancements”). Detailing the action focuses the AI’s output on achieving your precise objectives.

Context: Provide the AI with context that includes all necessary background information, constraints, goals and any relevant data. This could involve audience demographics, project limitations or specific content themes (e.g., “aimed at young adults interested in budget travel”). Contextual cues guide the AI to generate outputs that are appropriately tailored to your situation.

Expectation: Describe your expectations for the AI’s output in terms of format, style, depth and any other pertinent criteria (e.g., “create a concise list of bullet points,” “use an authoritative tone,” “ensure technical accuracy”). This helps ensure the final product meets your needs and reduces the need for extensive revisions.
