As business owners, you know there’s no shortage of manual tasks to be done—but with the release of Shopify Magic’s new suite of AI-powered features, everything from emails to product descriptions can be generated with the push of a button. In this special episode of Shopify’s podcast, hear from Shopify Magic’s director of product, Miqdad Jaffer, about how these features came to be, as well as how Mikey Moran, CEO of Private Label, uses them to supercharge his business.
Do more with less time
Mikey Moran’s Private Label is one of the world’s largest hair extension wholesalers, offering thousands of products internationally to thousands of businesses. This means Mikey and his team constantly need to upload product images and write descriptions to accompany each item.
In the past, this was a manual and tedious process—but now it’s sped up considerably, with help from Shopify’s new AI-generated product description feature. “It becomes very difficult to stay creative for a long period of time,” Mikey says. “And that’s where Shopify Magic comes in. It just blew my mind how fast I could create amazing product descriptions.”
Jump start your creative process
What’s the best way to get your business started with AI? Mikey suggests playing around and testing tools to figure out what unlocks your growth potential while maintaining your unique identity.
“[Within] Shopify Magic, there’s expert, daring, playful, sophisticated, persuasive, supportive—there are all these different tones that you can [select] in a dropdown menu,” says Mikey. "So go ahead and just play with the different prompts and try to figure out what’s gonna work the best for [your] brand voice."
