GPT 3.5 (Mimic and Custom Prompt)

The average cost for each article in this category was 2 pennies (so 100 articles would be around $2), which is the OpenAI cost using GPT 3.5 Turbo + Stable Diffusion image generation cost which is roughly $0.003 per image with a featured image and image for every other H2. Additional cost is the ZimmWriter subscription (or Lifetime Deal) along with a $5/mo ScrapeOwl API account to scrape YouTube videos.

The settings used for the articles were automatic H2 quantity determination (with a hard limit of 10), second person voice, literary devices, lists, long faq, key takeaways, nuke ai words, bold words, search intent introduction, mimic, and custom prompt (to everything except the intro, key takeaways, and faq).
I did not use SERP scraping for the articles, as I wanted to demonstrate how the GPT 3.5 Turbo can perform without it.

The mimic was: “Write in a style that is conversational and engaging, using accessible vocabulary and a mix of short and medium-length sentences with occasional comma usage for clarity. The tone maintains a level of emotion around 6, with light-hearted moments and reflections that resonate with the reader. The writing incorporates varied sentence structures and a moderate amount of detail to provide context without overwhelming the reader. Humor is subtly woven throughout, adding a touch of wit and amusement to the narrative.”

The custom prompt (applied using GPT 3.5 Turbo) was:
“Rewrite the text in a style that is direct, informative, and practical, focusing on clarity over poetic language. The vocabulary is accessible, tailored for readers with at least a middle school education. Sentences are of short length, with occasional variation for engagement. Emotion is kept at a moderate level, leaning towards rationality rather than sentimentality. Varied sentence structures maintain reader interest, with a balanced mix of simple and compound sentences. Explanations offer a moderate level of detail, supporting main points without overwhelming readers. Humor is used sparingly to lighten the tone, but not a primary feature of the writing style.”
