I bet that 99% of new writers don’t know about most of these tools.

Artificial Intelligence is about to turn the world upside down.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you probably know how ChatGPT is shaking up businesses and content creation.

If you were looking for a sign that AI is mainstream, here it is:

In February 2023, ChatGPT was on the cover of TIME.

What most people forget…

To some degree, AI has been present in our lives for a decade now!

  • Ever used Siri on your iPhone?
  • Ever asked Google for directions?
  • Ever searched for a movie on Prime Video or Netflix?
  • Ever translated text into another language?

Content creators are amazed and scared

Most content creators are concerned about the future.

I totally get it.

New technology has always been scary.

Some have argued that ChatGPT is an “iPhone moment for AI adoption”.

For instance, when the telephone was created in 1876, people were both amazed and scared.

As the TIME sums it up perfectly:

“To create is human. For the past 300,000 years we’ve been unique in our ability to make (…) Now we have company.”

A lot of my readers have expressed a going interest in ChatGPT’s impact on writing.

Of course, you only need to go to OpenAI’s website to unlock the power of ChatGPT.

But there’s more. The pace of innovation is incredible.

There are 100s of AI tools coming out every month.

It’s hard to know which tools are genuinely useful.

Bottom Line and New Video

We are in the infancy stages of what this cutting-edge tech is about to become.

However, you can leverage AI already to create better content — of course, only if you’re ready for it and want to give it a try.

This doesn’t mean you have to incorporate AI into your daily writing workflow, it only means to experiment with it a bit as I do.

Keep in mind that AI can be our partner and assistant in the content creation process and requires our human guidance.

The better our prompts and inputs are. The better the output.

Plus, the human mind has emotions that AI doesn’t have (yet).

Since a lot of my readers have expressed a going interest in ChatGPT’s impact on writing, I took a webinar from the Content Marketing Institute and experimented with the highly hyped ChatGPT a lot.

Spoiler alert: It’s been a blast. I’m impressed with how good AI already is.

I can’t wait to get your thoughts on AI and content creation!
