ChatGPT is only as good as the prompt. In my experience, it is not so much about creating a detailed prompt as knowing what to ask. It’s not as easy as it would seem. I tend to use the same prompts repeatedly instead of brainstorming something new.
Here’s a rundown of searchable databases, communities, and tools to discover new prompts.
Sources for ChatGPT Prompts
FlowGPT is an active community that shares, votes, and comments on prompts. Members can search the database or browse by category. Members can test a prompt by starting a chat directly from the FlowGPT site.
For example, I found an excellent “Instagram Caption Generator” prompt showing how to promote a product — e.g., “adjustable iPhone case with signature design pattern” — on Instagram. Enter your keyword or product description in the prompt, and ChatGPT will respond.
Ordinary Prompts for Ordinary People is a community of prompt sharers. Anyone can submit prompts and vote on others. The site includes a search feature, but I typically check the most voted prompts. Subscribe to get new weekly prompts via email.

Promptify generates prompt ideas automatically using AI. No account is required. The tool has helped me with content ideas.
Start with a keyword. I entered “Christmas ornaments,” and Promptify suggested content topics and suggested unique ornament gift ideas and messages for various countries.
