AI is a tool – and I mean that in a good way

Using AI to enhance your writing results.

How AI Can Support Content Creation for Websites & Newsletters

In today's digital age, content creation is more important than ever before. With so much information available online, it can be difficult for businesses to stand out from the crowd. That's where content creation comes in.

Content creation is the process of developing and producing content that is relevant, informative, and engaging. This content can take many forms, including blog posts, articles, infographics, videos, and social media posts. We use content to encourage search engines to visit our websites, driving visitor traffic to businesses and services.

The importance of ongoing content generation

The goal of content creation is to attract new visitors to your website, engage existing customers, and build relationships with your target audience. When this is done well, content creation can help you achieve a number of marketing goals, including:

  • Increase website traffic
  • Generate leads
  • Boost sales
  • Improve brand awareness
  • Build trust and credibility

How AI can support your writing efforts

When using AI to generate content for your online marketing whether that is a newsletter, a social media post or content for your website, it is important to also have the skills of an editor, the curiosity of a researcher and the knowhow to combine these skills to improve the results. Content sourced from an AI means you're using artificial intelligence to generate text. Once the content is created, having a knowledge of grammar, spelling, and style is key to improving the quality of text provided by an AI prompt. As humans writing content we're also bringing to the table our life experiences, professional knowledge and personality - something that AI does not always convey.

Using AI to support your editorial skills can be very helpful. When a writer is in research mode AI content tools can be a good source for generating new ideas and text quickly, but that content may not always be high-quality text that is free of errors. A content editor can help to improve the quality of AI-generated text by checking for errors, verifying the details, making improvement in storylines and ensuring that the content is engaging for readers. In my practice, I have been using AI to generate a draft of text based on my own queries and ideas, and then I will edit and polish those results for readability and flow. Sometimes a large portion of AI content may be suited for a story I'm writing, while other times there may only be a paragraph or two that I'll include in my article. I combine AI content that meets my goals with my own content to make the results readable, engaging and informative.

Whether writing from scratch or using AI to support your content generation for articles and website content, content creation can still be a lot of work. Content creation is one of the most important tools in a digital marketer's toolbox, because a website without words is an SEO sinkhole. When done well, content creation can help you achieve a number of marketing goals. So if you're not already creating content for your website or newsletter using AI to assist, now is the time to start.
