This Blog Was (mostly) Written By AI
Artificial Intelligence. AI. It's the future, NOW and the robots are taking over!
In the content creation space, there is a LOT being said about the use of AI to create all types of content. From images to video to captions to long-form, content is getting the Jetson's treatment and moving into the robotic domain.
You would think that as someone who makes pays the bills creating content, I would not be on board with this. In all honesty, I'm here for it. AI can be a great tool to help you write your blog posts. It can help you identify the best topics to write about, generate ideas for content, and make sure your posts are well-structured and easy to read, especially if writing is not your strong suit. AI can also help you optimize your posts for search engines and ensure that your content is up-to-date with the latest trends and topics. By using AI, you can save time and energy, while still creating high-quality content that your readers will enjoy.
What are the benefits to using AI to write your content?
Efficiency: Using AI to write your blog posts can be more efficient because it can quickly generate content based on data and research, allowing you to save time that could be spent on more important tasks, like catching up with the Sister Wives drama. AI can also help identify patterns and correlations in data to better target audiences. Additionally, AI can optimize content for SEO, helping your content rank higher in search engine results. Finally, AI can help you save money in the long run by automating time-consuming tasks. Basically, we can focus on strategy and creativity and hand off the assembly to the tool more suited for that task.
Cost Savings: Using AI to write your blog posts can be cost-efficient because it can save you time and money. AI-generated content can be produced quickly and without the need for much human intervention. This can help you save money on hiring a professional writer or editor (if you are a large company), as well as the time it would take to create a blog post from scratch (if you're a solo venture). Additionally, AI-generated content can often be personalized to a specific audience, which can help you tailor your content to the interests and needs of your readers. Finally, AI-generated content can be tracked and analyzed, giving you insights into what works best for your blog and how to optimize your content for maximum engagement.
Quality Content: AI can help you generate quality content in a fraction of the time it would take a human to write as it is capable of analyzing large amounts of data and using that data to produce content that is both relevant and accurate. AI can also use natural language processing to produce content that is more readable, engaging, and tailored to the user's needs. While AI can produce quality content, it should be noted that human input is still necessary to ensure the accuracy and relevancy of the content and providing clever gifs to break up the paragraphs.
Insight and Analytics: AI can use insight and analytics to create content by leveraging data from various sources and applying analytics to identify patterns in the data. This can allow AI to generate content that is tailored to the interests of the audience. For example, AI can use natural language processing to analyze past conversations and generate content that is in line with the topics discussed. Additionally, AI can use sentiment analysis to generate content that is tailored to the sentiment of the audience. AI can also use data mining techniques to analyze trends and create content that is in line with the latest trends. Ultimately, AI can use insight and analytics to create content that is tailored to the interests of the audience, if not a little formulaic.
Stay Up to Date: AI can be a great tool to help you stay up to date with blogging trends. For example, you can use AI-driven analytics tools to gain insights about the performance of your blog content and uncover insights about what kind of content performs best, helping you to craft better blog posts in the future. Additionally, you can use AI-driven sentiment analysis tools to keep an eye on the conversations and trends occurring within your industry, allowing you to know when there are changes or new topics of discussion that you can leverage for your blog. Lastly, AI can be used to automate certain aspects of the blogging process, such as content curation, which can help you save time and keep your content fresh and relevant.
I banged this post out in 15 minutes using Canva's new Canva Docs & Magic Write feature simply asking "Write short blog on 5 reasons you should use AI to write your blog post". I'd say 90% of it is straight from the AI generated copy. I didn't have to sit here and agonize over making a structured point. I did use a couple of rounds of prompts to expand some points. Most of the time on this post was spent adding a little bit of fluffy personality and clever gifs. I can tell which parts I didn't write, and I'm sure if you held it next to one of my wittier posts it there would be a clear difference, but overall this isn't bad.
Is AI going to replace my role? No. Somebody still has to think of the strategy behind the shitposting I do. What AI generated content will do is help streamline a lot of the menial tasks in the process and connect the dots faster between pieces. That leaves more time for the marketers to focus on the fun and creative aspects that drew us to this field in the first place.
