Links to other episodes featuring Ryan Sargent: How Agencies Can Make More Money by Integrating AI Tools Where do content creation experts stand on whether or not to use AI? Basically, if your agency isn’t planning on using AI at all in 2023, you are making a mistake. On the other hand, if you think AI is going to replace freelancers, fool Google, and you’ll never need a writer again, that's also a mistake. The reality is, agencies need to be using AI as soon as the next few months. We should all learn to use AI not as a catch-all, but as an actual tool. To this end, work with people who really understand AI. Find the balance. As it stands right now, AI tools can produce a lot of words. However, there are a lot of weaknesses: Factual accuracy. There’s actually no guarantee the content produced by an AI is correct. Sentence structure. A blog post created by AI does not necessarily have a logical structure or make sense at all. Weakened SEO. Google knows AI-generated created content apart from what is human-written. It is tempting for agencies to look at AI as a way to produce content at a much lower cost. However, with these weaknesses, the best alternative is a hybrid approach. Take content created by AI and improve it with human editing. We shouldn’t view AI as a service or a finished product. It can do great work in saving writers from a blank page. With the right prompt, AI is great at generating ideas and continuing thoughts. As long as the writer is there to review and (probably) make significant edits, it can be really effective. First Steps to Integrate AI as Part of Your Strategy in 2023 Curious about AI?
