Are you considering creating high-quality content to advance your business but are unsure of how to enhance your writing abilities to draw in more niche audiences?

We hear you! 

Because content performance can influence website engagement (67%), conversions (65%), and email engagement (63%), boosting content quality is a strategically excellent business move.

However, becoming noticeable doesn't happen overnight— you need to leverage a blog conversion funnel and stick to the publishing schedule.

Not to mention that you need to produce useful content just to attract attention and maintain that level of writing to become trustworthy for your targeted audience.

Nowadays, many writers utilize AI writing tools to achieve all that — save their writing time, produce more content, and boost their content quality to enhance conversion rates.

So, where to start?

Today, we will teach you how to use AI writing tools in your writing process to generate up to 10x more content in 70% less writing time while improving your writing skills in the process.

Let's begin!

What Are AI Writing Tools?

AI writing tools are pieces of software designed to assist writers in generating material for their content marketing funnel.

Furthermore, they are a great asset in overcoming writer’s block moments.

How do AI Writing Tools Work?

There are two different types of AI writing tools:

  • GPT-3 module-based — AI writing tools use 10% of the internet material when generating your content.
  • Use-case module-based — AI writing tools that rely on the knowledge base with best-practice sentences and paragraphs when generating text.

The difference between them? 

Depending on your tool, GPT-3 module-based tools tend to generate robotic-tone content more often than use-case module-based AI writing tools.

According to the latest Google update in 2022, that can affect your content credibility and cause severe consequences in your blog or website performance.

Conversely, use-case module-based AI tools use machine learning and complex algorithms to generate text around keywords you provide.

That means that AI writers will take the given keyword and, using patterns in their algorithm, predict the most relevant outcome that is, by default, unique and natural sounding.

Why is that?

That is because its knowledge base consists of the material that humans wrote.

Let’s check out the benefits of using AI writing tools.

Benefits Of Utilizing AI Writing Tools

While many newbies fear that google will penalize AI content, many writers never gave up on utilizing them in their writing process. And here are the reasons why:

  • Saves writing time — AI tools will help you generate text up to 7x faster.
  • Produces content at scale — You can create blog posts, ads, emails, product descriptions, etc., within a couple of clicks.
  • Improves writing skills — Some AI tools offer rewriting tools and content analyzers to help you improve your writing abilities.
  • Takes over repetitive jobs — You will not have to worry about the content structure using predefined short and long content forms.
  • Allows you to create templates — Some tools enable you to save your creations for future use.
  • Generates text in different languages— Many AI tools have multilingual AI generators.
  • Available 24/7 — You can use it any time you need it.
  • Budget-friendly — AI tools are far cheaper than hiring professional content writers for your content strategy.

Now that you know what AI writing tools are and how you can benefit from them, let’s see how to put them into practice and gain content visibility that will skyrocket your business performance.

How To Use AI Writing Tools in Your Writing Process — 5 Steps on TextCortex Example

1. Start With the Title

When starting your blog article, you should create an engaging blog title if you want your readers to read an article.

A compelling blog title is the first thing your audience sees before they decide to read your blog post.

So how can AI writing tools help me create one?

The procedur for many AI writing tools is the same:

  1. Define what the blog is about.
  2. Set the primary keyword on which you want AI writers to focus.

Depending on the AI writing tool, you can define the number of versions you need and the level of creativity before you hit a button to create.

With the TextCortex AI writing tool, the creativity level defines the quality of the output. You can choose between Low, Medium, High, and Best.

Best practices suggest that the golden middle (Medium and High) provides the best results.

Here is how the Title Generator feature works: 

As you can see, TextCortex allows you to customize the title output in the way it fits you best. For example, you can choose between Title, sentence, uppercase, lowercase, and first letter format.

Again, the engaging writing best practices suggest that the first letter format attracts attention the most.

After you choose a title you want to use for your blog post, we can proceed with generating text.

2. Start Generating Text

Once you have your blog title, you can use it with the exact keywords to start generating your text.

AI writing tool will start generating text around the provided keyword. 

Some AI tools offer separate features such as introduction, conclusion, and paragraph.

While others, such as TextCortex, start generating text from the introduction, allowing you to expand it further.

To start using the TextCortex Blog writing feature you need to:

  1. Set your blog title.
  2. Enter related keywords.
  3. Choose the text length (L-100 words, M-200 words, L-300 words).
  4. Pick the creativity level (Low, Medium, High, Best). 

Here is what the entire process looks like:

TextCortex’s Blog Writing feature will always start generating text from the introduction, giving you enough space to modify your content as you go.

You can use an editable canvas to adjust font, the formatting of the titles and subtitles, and even edit the text within the canvas.

If you need to edit or manually add portions of the text, just choose where you want to start and start typing.

This brings us to the next part.

3. Define Your Milestones

The essential thing when writing your blog post is to outline your key points.

Writing an outline will help your readers get to the most critical aspects of your blog post faster.

Furthermore, it will give your content organizational structure and boost your content readability while making it more digestible.

The process of creating outlines for your blog post with AI writing tools is pretty much the same as creating blog titles:

  1. Define what the article is about.
  2. Specify the keyword you want to use.
  3. Select the version number for the outlines (optional).

Once the generating process is finished, you will get to choose your outlines.

However, the TextCortex tool doesn’t offer a feature to create outlines as such. That is because outlines are part of the introduction with the Blog writing feature

Once you choose the blog post title and define related keywords, text length, and creativity level, TextCortex's AI writers will offer outlines as part of the blog post outcome. 

Here is what that looks like:

With its editable canvas, TextCortex will allow you to modify the outlines by keeping, discarding, rewriting, and expanding them using an Extend or Blog Article feature as part of the rewriter Chrome extension.

Select the sentence you want to expand, click on the logo and choose “Long-form post”

Here is how to do that:

You can re-generate text as many times as you need, until you find your perfect match.

My experience is that it gives a solid output from the first attempt, every single time.

4. Shape Your Thoughts

The good thing about AI tools that offer rewriter Chrome extensions is that you don’t have to limit your work within the application to make your sentences sound more professional.

You can use these extensions (f they support the platform you need) to generate your content in the blog post window. 

Per my experience, most rewriter tools focus on rewriting features, with limitations to single-sentence paraphrasing.

However, rewriting in bulk will help you to faster rewrite your thoughts without changing their meaning and allow you to repurpose your content for your targeted audience efficiently.

Here is how the TextCortex’s rewriting in bulk option works on the LinkedIn post window:

Same as with the blog article feature, to rewrite your sentences and paragraphs, just hover your mouse on the portion of the text that needs paraphrasing, click the logo and choose rewriting option.

With all the magic in your sleeve, one last trick you must know to boost your content for better visibility — how to use AI tools in your writing process for promotional purposes.

5. Promote Your Content

When you have your content ready, it is just 50% of the work done. Now you have to focus on promoting your content to a broad audience to attract more leads.

And one great technique to do that is by sending nurturing emails.

How AI tools can help with that?

Some AI tools offer features for generating emails. TextCortex tool has that feature available in both, web application and rewriter extension.

To create your emails with the TextCortex rewrite extension, you need to specify the essential points in the form of bullets, select them all, click on the logo, and choose the Bullet to Email option.

Let’s see how to generate emails using the Bullet to Email option within the rewriter extension:

You will have to create personalized emails for leads you want to attract within each outreach sequence

The better you know your targeted audience, the better email you will be able to create.

But imagine writing all those emails manually. 

Sure, outreach email templates can help you. But wouldn't it be better to have a personal fingerprint in those emails in the form of your own templates?

Final Thoughts

AI writing tools can offer you an arsenal of features that will help you boost your content quality, attract a more targeted audience, and keep up with your publishing schedule.

They will also help you avoid the biggest content writing mistakes and better research your competition and the needs of your audience.

And why not use all the help you can get to achieve your business goals? Especially if you can give them a try for free.
