The Cost Effectiveness of AI
Bloggers, influencers, and other content creators are shifting to using AI software to automatically write content quickly and effortlessly by inputting a description of their intended article subject and some supporting details. Of course, the person may have to do some research on their end to increase the piece’s overall credibility and link to external articles.
Overall, paying for the full benefits of AI software is usually cheaper than outsourcing to human writers affiliated with a content writing company. The drawback of saving money using AI is that the final piece may not feel as humanly generated because it lacks the unique nuance that human writers bring to the table.
