What bad prompts look like

One of the most important things to keep in mind is that the quality of the email prompts defines the email output you’ll get.


Writing a bad prompt will simply lead to a bad answer.


Think of it like this: writing prompts is the same as asking an assistant to write an email, what information would you give your assistant?

So what does a bad prompt look like?


Here are some examples:

  • "Write an email to your boss about the project" - This prompt is too vague and doesn't provide any specific details or goals. It's difficult for the AI to understand what kind of email you want to write, and the resulting output may not be what you were hoping for.

  • "Write an email to my colleague about the job opening he applied to last night" - This prompt is too broad and doesn't provide enough context. The AI may not know which job opening you're talking about, which colleague, or what specific details to include in the email.

  • "Write an email to your staff about the meeting tomorrow at 10am" - This prompt is too short and doesn't provide enough information for the AI to work with. It's important to include as much detail as possible to ensure that the AI understands your intent.

  • "Respond to this email" - While it sounds quick and convenient, this prompt unfortunately lacks the information to tell the AI instructions on what you actually want to write.  Remedy this by adding more info to steer the AI to the direction you want the email to take.


Remember, the quality of your AI prompts is crucial for getting the most out of MailMaestro. By providing clear and specific prompts, you'll be able to craft emails that accurately reflect your goals and intentions.
