AI Prompt

Please provide a list of 40 varied responses to my Teachers Pay Teachers reviews. Each response should include a placeholder for the reviewer’s name to make them personalized. For example, instead of “I’m so glad you liked it. Thank you!” it should be “I’m so glad you liked it, NAME. Thank you!” I will replace “NAME” with the actual reviewer’s name when I copy and paste the responses.

Iphone Automation

Set up shortcuts on your iPhone! Once you have them set up, you can save tons of time replying to feedback!

Repeat these steps for each of the responses you want to set up. Here’s an example using the first response:

  • Open Settings.
  • Tap “General.”
  • Tap “Keyboard.”
  • Tap “Text Replacement.”
  • Tap the “+” icon.
  • In the “Phrase” field, paste: “I’m so glad you liked it, NAME. Thank you!”
  • In the “Shortcut” field, type: “fb1.”
  • Tap “Save.”

Repeat these steps for the remaining responses, using “fb2,” “fb3,” etc., as shortcuts for each respective response.

Visuals – Using AI

As with any AI generator, the better the prompt, the better the image! Here are examples of my 2 favorite programs. I used the prompt “Note to Follower” logo, flowers, bright colors, teachers, school supplies


Midjourney makes amazing art, but it does struggle with text.

Commercial Requirements:

Subscription Requirement: To use MidJourney-generated images commercially, you need to be a paid subscriber. Free users can only use the images for personal or non-commercial purposes under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 4.0 International License​ (MidJourney)​​ (Nerds Chalk)​.

Ownership and Licensing: As a paid subscriber, you own the images you create and can use them commercially. This includes using the images in marketing materials, merchandise, book covers, and more. However, these images are not copyrighted, meaning that while you can use and modify them, you cannot prevent others from using them​ (AI StartUps Cheatsheet)​​ (methodshop)​.

High Revenue Businesses: If your business generates more than $1 million in annual revenue, you need to subscribe to the Pro or Mega plan to use the images commercially​ (MidJourney)​​ (Expertbeacon)​.

Ethical Considerations: It’s important to comply with MidJourney’s terms of service, properly attribute the images, and disclose that they are AI-generated. Additionally, consider the impact on human artists and avoid replacing them entirely with AI-generated art​ (Expertbeacon)​.


Ideogram does so well with text!
