How to use AI in your content creation
The big question this year has been: Will AI tools replace jobs or threaten organic content creation? While we’re going to walk you through a few ways to use AI in your tasks, the human touch is still essential. Trust us; as a creator your job is safe.
However, you can take advantage of AI-powered tools to assist your content creation in the following ways.
Generate content ideas
Running low on content ideas? Boot up ChatGPT and insert a prompt like, “Write X content ideas for [your topic.]” And take a look at the list provided. While not every idea will be a winner, you may find some that you hadn’t thought of before.
You can also ask the AI to “Write X more content ideas” to extend the list even more.
Ask AI to create an outline for your next big digital product, like an ebook or even your online course. Input “Write a detailed outline for an ebook on [your topic]” or “Write a detailed outline for an online course covering [your topic]” to generate an outline that ca help you get started.
Easily repurpose your tweets or sections of your article into other types of content. Paste in the content that you want to be repurposed in quotation marks in the ChatGPT text box with the prompt “Repurpose the following into [a LinkedIn post/a Twitter thread/a YouTube intro].”
Get help with marketing copy
Let AI help you with your Twitter thread hook, an Instagram caption, or even an idea for a long-form LinkedIn post. Use a simple prompt like, “Write [a Twitter thread hook/LinkedIn post/etc.] on [your topic]” to get started. You can always ask for changes to get the AI to adjust the post before making edits on your own to match it to your voice.
Start using AI in your content creation
AI isn’t here to take jobs. However, it can be used to help streamline certain content creation processes, making your work go much more quickly and efficiently. Start incorporating some of these AI-powered tools in your day-to-day tasks.
