Hey friends, Ian Job here. You might know me for the outrageous headlines, the deep dives into marketing psychology, or maybe you just crave the regular dose of caffeine-fueled writing that keeps you on your toes.

Whatever brought you here, one thing’s for sure: you want to be a better writer.

Now, the headlines are screaming about AI taking over the world, replacing copywriters, and churning out content like a content-spewing machine on overdrive. Relax. Here’s the truth: AI can’t replace you. It can, however, be your secret weapon.

Before we continue, I look up to Jon Morrow for inspiration and mentorship in this space. For those still living under a rock and don’t know him — he’s a selfmade millionaire all from his wheelchair only able to move his eyes and lips. He just released an invaluable book - AI Writer: Use ChatGPT to Write 100x Faster (& Get Filthy Rich) Kindle Edition. You can grab it here.

Let’s dive into how AI can take your writing from good to great, without ever losing that human touch that makes your work truly shine.

AI: Your Brainstorming Buddy

We’ve all been there: staring at a blank page, willing words to appear. Writer’s block is a real creativity killer. But AI can be your brainstorming partner.

  • Idea Generation: Stuck on a headline? Need a fresh angle? Feed some keywords into an AI tool and watch it spit out a dozen options to kickstart your creative juices.
  • Outline Magic: AI can analyze existing content or your jumbled notes and help you structure a clear, concise outline. No more flailing around in the writing void.

AI: Your Grammar Gremlin Slayer

We all make mistakes. But typos and grammatical errors can yank your reader right out of your meticulously crafted world. AI can be your grammar guardian angel:

  • Proofreading Powerhouse: Run your work through an AI editing tool. It’ll catch typos, suggest stronger verbs, and even flag passive voice.
  • Clarity Champion: AI can identify confusing sentence structure and suggest ways to make your writing clear, concise, and easy to understand.

AI: Your Tone Twister

Finding the right tone is crucial. AI can help you adapt your writing style to fit the audience and purpose:

  • Casual or Formal: Need to shift your writing from a friendly blog post to a formal business proposal? AI can help you adjust the tone to match the situation.
  • Audience Aficionado: AI can analyze successful content aimed at your target audience and suggest ways to mirror that tone and style.

AI: Remember, the “A” Stands for Assistant

AI is a powerful tool, but it’s not a magic wand. Here’s the key takeaway: AI should enhance your writing, not replace your human touch.

  • Don’t Be a Copy-and-Paste Cyborg: AI-generated content can be a great starting point, but it needs your unique voice and perspective to truly shine.
  • Fact-Check Like a Boss: AI can’t discern truth from fiction. Double-check all information, especially when using AI-generated content.

Become a Writing Cyborg (The Good Kind)

AI isn’t here to take over your writing. It’s here to give you superpowers. Embrace the new age of writing with AI as your sidekick. You’ll churn out better content, faster, and with less creative struggle.

Now get out there and write something amazing, with a little help from your friendly AI assistant.
