I’d be honest!
AI writing is the talk of the town and it made me frown a couple of times because, for a professional writer, it appears to be an unsettling thought that the binary heads will do the job humans are supposed to do!
All these thoughts were quite dominant until I hopped onto an AI writing project and realized that people are increasingly using AI to publish content faster. In fact, “AI writers” is the newest job title in demand on several remote work sites.
It has been four months since I have been using Jasper – An AI writing tool – to manage a project and I would very much like to share my observations if you are unsure about taking this leap.
AI Content Writing Tools— What drove me to try it?
For those who are not familiar with it, an artificial intelligence (AI) content writer is computer software that creates content based on human input. The user informs the AI content writer of their desired style for the finished result, and the AI tool develops the content in line with the instructions.
Larger amounts of text may be written by more advanced tools using prompts resembling the style they were taught to write in. If you’re not sure where to start, there are plenty of AI writing tools available online. Just do a quick search and you’ll find different options to choose from.
For me, the top reason for using the AI writing tool was that using it to write blogs and social media posts can save me a lot of time and hassle.
Content marketers use AI to help their websites score higher in Google’s algorithm by SEO techniques since Google uses an engine to search based on keywords. And I think this is helpful especially if you want your content to reach a larger audience.
Here Is What I Found Using Jasper- An AI Writing Tool
My experience with Jasper AI was interesting, to say the least. The first thing that struck me was the user interface. It is a bit dated and not as sleek as some of the other options out there. But, it is easy to use and navigate.
The second thing I noticed was the price. At $49/month, it is one of the more expensive options available. But, you do get what you pay for with this service. Jasper AI offers a lot of features and customization options that other services do not provide. Overall, I would recommend Jasper AI to anyone looking for a robust AI solution. Just be prepared to shell out a bit of cash each month.
For starters, this tool doesn’t have any type of pre-built structure or template; instead, it allows you to create whatever structure you want as long as it fits within its constraints.
This means that if your structure isn’t following a specific pattern or format, this tool won’t be able to help with it. In addition to that, Jasper AI doesn’t have any built-in templates or stylesheets; all text needs to be manually created once on the site before being published online.
The biggest issue with Jasper AI is that it’s not very customizable; there are only two basic styles of text available (plain and bold), and these styles cannot be changed after they’ve been published online by users who use this tool regularly—which means there will always be inconsistencies between different pieces of content published by different users.
Personally, for me, speed is by far the biggest benefit of AI writing tools. The system gathers relevant terms from all online searches and put them together into a legible piece of content.
Another advantage I have noticed is that artificial intelligence-assisted content is valuable in quantity and quality due to its ability to collect information online and generate many versions.
But remember that you have to edit AI content for structure, headings, link building, and sometimes even SEO optimization for any specific keywords that you are targeting.
Al writing tools use algorithms to create their output. They cannot get past that point. Because of this, I think the distinctive quality that characterizes well-put conversational writing can be lost. For instance, overuse of AI techniques will result in uniform writing styles.
A competent writer plays on the audience’s emotions and employs terminology and allusions that are up-to-date and relevant to the audience’s circumstances, which is again lost via using an AI tool despite selecting the writing tone feature available on these platforms.
Artificial intelligence bases its contents on facts and data that already exist. Generally, it is unable to generate original, novel thoughts.
So, it operates following the facts it has gathered and the knowledge supplied to it. The content produced by AI is always precise but not necessarily relevant. So some manual editing is still required here.
But Is It True, That AI Will Replace Human Writers?
I don’t think AI will ever replace human writers. In fact, AI is already helping human writers become better at their craft. For example, Grammarly uses AI to help people improve their writing skills.
And as AI technology continues to develop, it will only become more and more helpful to human writers. The fact is that people and companies still want content writers since there will always be people. Among other areas, AI fails to provide material optimized for search engines (SEO).
So don’t worry, your job is safe. For now 🙂
But who knows what the future holds? Maybe in a few hundred years, AI will be so good at writing that there will be no need for human writers at all. But even then, I’m sure there will still be a place for human writers. After all, we’re the ones who created AI in the first place.
So don’t worry, AI is not going to replace human writers anytime soon. In fact, it’s only going to make us better at what we do. But who knows what the future holds? Only time will tell.
Although it is unlikely that AI will ever completely replace content writers, it can be a useful tool to help us accelerate the creative process.
