Attention social media marketers! Are you tired of spending hours brainstorming the perfect caption for your posts? Do you struggle to come up with relevant hashtags and emojis that will make your content stand out? Look no further, because we have the solution for you.

Introducing Captivate: AI generated caption ideas for your social media posts – a game-changing tool that will revolutionize the way you create content.

With just a few clicks, you can generate ideas and concepts for captions that are tailored specifically to your brand and audience.

Not only does Captivate help you come up with ideas, it also suggests relevant emojis and hashtags to include in your captions. This saves you a ton of time and effort when it comes to crafting the perfect post.

But the best part? You can use Captivate right where you are planning and publishing your content – no need to switch to another tab or website. Simply type in a prompt and let the AI do the work for you.

[And yes, I did use the AI tool ChatGPT that Captivate is built on to give me a few ideas of what to include in this post…]

Getting the most out of Captivate

As with all AI based tools, the key 'skill' involved is preparing the ideal prompt for the AI to identify what you would like.

We've done quite a bit of work behind the scenes to try and make it as easy and simple as possible, and tweaked some language so that Captivate has a lot of flexibility and power based on the kind of prompts that you enter.

Here are a few tips to help you improve the way you write your prompts:

  1. Be specific:
    The more specific your prompts are, the more targeted the AI's suggestions will be. Instead of writing a general prompt like "a beach vacation," try something more specific like "a beach vacation in Hawaii featuring a sunset."
  2. Use relevant keywords:
    Include relevant keywords in your prompts to help the AI understand the context of your content. For example, if you're promoting a new product, be sure to include the product name in the prompt.
  3. Keep your audience in mind:
    When writing prompts, consider who your target audience is and what kind of language they will respond to. This will help the AI generate ideas that are more tailored to your audience.
  4. Consider your brand's tone and voice:
    Make sure your prompts reflect the tone and voice of your brand. This will help the AI generate ideas that align with your brand's style and personality.
  5. Use action verbs:
    Action verbs (run, walk, skip, …) help convey a sense of movement and encourage your audience to take action. Try to include action verbs in your prompts to help the AI generate ideas that are more engaging.
  6. Be open to new ideas:
    The AI is designed to generate creative and unique ideas that you may not have thought of on your own. Don't be afraid to try out new ideas and see how they perform. You may be surprised by the results!

Prompt ideas to get your creative juices flowing

You can even be a bit sneaky and add some additional context and style guidance to get the AI to be particularly creative. Here are a few examples, where I've provided the exact prompt that I gave to Captivate and the results.

Providing Captivate with the same prompt again will get you 5 more ideas, so feel free to tweak and return the same prompt over and over until it's perfect…

We recommend at least 5-10 words as a prompt, but feel free to add more, up to a maximum of 1,000 characters. As you can see below, a little bit of extra specificity goes a long way!

You'll notice that not all of them are simple copy/paste jobs (often needing you to add line breaks, check mentioned accounts etc – I've added line breaks below so it's easier to read) and some don't make sense – that's why we always give you 5 ideas!
