Avallach Technology is a long-standing (20+ years) business name that I have used as an umbrella for web hosting, web development work, and creation of a (now defunct) web service. It is my plan to revamp and relaunch this “brand”, using the insights and knowledge gained from an online business programme, and also making use of ChatGPT in the planning process by helping to refine the business concept, identify the target market, and develop a digital strategy. After some initial work with ChatGPT on this, I asked it to write an article summarising what we had done. That article is posted as-is below. Future articles will hopefully expand on some of the more detailed outputs from ChatGPT – e.g. the Ideal Client Avatar description – and possibly some generalised ChatGPT prompts that might help you to go through a similar process.

In the digital age, starting an online business can be a daunting task, especially for those new to the world of e-commerce and digital marketing. However, with the advent of advanced AI tools like ChatGPT, entrepreneurs can now navigate this journey more easily. In this article, we’ll explore how ChatGPT can help you develop a brand, target market, client avatar, website, content, and marketing strategy for your new online venture.

Developing Your Brand with ChatGPT

Brand Identity: ChatGPT can assist in brainstorming ideas for your brand name and identity. For instance, Avallach Technology, whose name is inspired by Celtic mythology, reflects a commitment to guiding and inspiring clients, mirroring the founder’s roots and values.

Logo and Color Scheme: Discussing logo design and color schemes with ChatGPT can provide clarity and direction. For Avallach, a simple yet elegant logo with a dark sage green accent was chosen, symbolizing growth and harmony.

Identifying Your Target Market

ChatGPT can help identify and refine your target market. For Avallach Technology, the target market includes aspiring entrepreneurs, small business owners, and individuals looking to transition to online business, emphasizing a market that values guidance and comprehensive support.

Creating a Client Avatar

A client avatar represents your ideal customer. ChatGPT can aid in detailing this avatar, considering demographics, psychographics, and online behavior. Avallach’s avatar, Emily Johnson, is a mid-30s aspiring entrepreneur, balancing work and family, and looking to start an online craft business.

Designing Your Website

ChatGPT can provide insights into the latest web design trends and help structure your website. For, a user-friendly, content-rich site with clear navigation and a responsive design was proposed, focusing on showcasing services and providing valuable resources.

Crafting Content and Marketing Strategy

Content Strategy: ChatGPT can assist in developing a content strategy that resonates with your audience. For Avallach, this includes educational blog posts, success stories, and practical guides for starting and managing an online business.

Marketing Strategy: ChatGPT can suggest marketing approaches tailored to your brand and audience. For Avallach, strategies include targeted social media campaigns, email marketing, and community engagement through forums and webinars.


Starting an online business from scratch is a challenging yet rewarding endeavor. With ChatGPT, you can gain valuable insights and guidance at every step, from developing your brand identity to executing a successful marketing strategy. Embrace the power of AI and watch your online business thrive.
