Let AI help with everyday tasks
Writer’s block? Yeah, we’ve all been there. Thankfully, AI tools are like a bolt of lightning that can zap your creativity back to life! 🧠
Feeling stuck? Ask your AI buddy to come up with topics, start a paragraph, or do whatever you need to get those juices flowing. Who knows, you may not even end up using the content that it provides, but it’ll definitely kickstart your imagination. 🔥
When you’re in the zone, effortlessly producing creative content, the last thing on your mind is proper grammar. However, ignoring grammar can be detrimental to your credibility. Luckily, there are AI tools at your disposal that can meticulously examine your work, ensuring that everything is buttoned up.
Crafting social media copy can be a daunting task when searching for the right words to connect with your following. It’s even more challenging creating fresh content multiple times a week for multiple platforms. AI can assist in generating ideas and trends to make the process smoother and more efficient.
Using AI in an ethical way
Although AI is totally rad, you can’t be lazy. AI is a tool that is used to enhance the work you already created, not create all the work for you. PR is about personalized content and being creative. AI is great for inspiring creative thoughts, but it might not nail that authentic voice. We gotta remember: us humans bring that eloquent, meaningful language to the table with our intuition & ingenuity.
Keep it personalized
It’s essential to use your company’s voice and style in your social posts, blogs, and website. If you’re still figuring out your voice, take a step back and read our blog about social guides first.
Even if you’ve nailed your voice, AI can struggle to capture your unique identity. While it may generate decent content, PR thrives on forging personal connections, networking with peers, and making clients feel valued. No AI can match that human touch.
