Maximizing Your Content Budget With AI
Enterprise businesses are learning that it's all about content regarding external and internal promotions. A great video, presentation, or infographic can be the key to a winning pitch.
But great content is costly. Even a one-off project with an agency or consultant could cost thousands for material such as a custom pitch deck. Unsurprisingly, more businesses are considering AI alternatives to content creation.
For starters, they're generally less expensive. And while not a substitute for agency-level creativity, AI can be equally effective in the hands of the right people. We look at some of the options here.
We live and work in a visual world, so there's no shortage of platforms that use AI in part or exclusively to help users develop high-level graphics and videos. Here are some worth considering.

Before You Begin Your AI Journey
The decision to incorporate AI into your content strategy involves more than just a 'jump right in’ approach. By following these steps, you can rest assured you're setting yourself and your organization up for success.
Determine the specific areas where you want to leverage AI to generate content. It could be creating blog posts, social media content, product descriptions, or other forms of written content.
Choose Your Platforms
Choose a model or platform that aligns with your objectives, specific needs, and expertise.
Assign Users or Groups
Consider the best person to use the AI platforms you choose. For instance, if you have an in-house creative group, a graphic designer might use Canva. A pr/communications group responsible for press releases might use Chat GPT. Someone who can write a details creative brief would be perfect.
Generate, Review and Refine
Although AI-generated content can be beneficial, it may still require human review and occasional tweaking. Assign writers or designers to review the generated content, and make any necessary adjustments, ensuring everything aligns with your brand.
Monitor and Improve
Continuously monitor the AI output. Collect feedback from users and make improvements to the process. This will help enhance content's accuracy, relevance, and overall effectiveness in the long run.
