Artificial Intelligence is Here
Unless you have been hiding underneath a rock, AI is here and is probably here to stay. What does this mean for us in the Affiliate Marketing and Digital Marketing world?
In this post, I want to unlock some of the hidden gems that you can find utilizing some artificial intelligence sites that have been opened up for public use in the last year or so.
A quick disclaimer, as of the writing of this post I am not an affiliate of any AI language program or any other AI program out there, but…I probably soon will be and if I have come back here and linked to a few words, I may get paid a commission for it!
I would also like to issue a bit of a warning. As affiliate marketers and those interested in affiliate marketing, we create a lot of content…a LOT of content and I would warn you not to replace your own words with any AI program.
While sites like ChatGPT can help you with ideas, article and blog post outlines as well as video scripts, I would use these as a guide rather than a simple copy and post alternative.
With that said, let’s dive in…
Using ChatGPT4 AI As a Efficient and Effective Brainstorming Tool
I’m not going to lie, I can’t help but to use the ChatGPT4 language AI. In minutes I can generate an outline for a new blog post, ask for 5-10 titles for that post. In seconds, ChatGPT4 has completed the tasks, making it the fastest assistant I’ve ever had.
Now, while it may be tempting to copy these titles and even a paragraph or two that you prompt the AI to generate, I advise that you let the results that ChatGPT4 spark your own imagination. for your own words.
This AI language program simply goes to the Internet and finds existing articles, blog posts, news clips and the like and puts it all together for you.
The sentence that the AI model will generate for you has possibly already been written in an existing article somewhere online. So plagiarism is a possibility and that is something that you will need to stay away from if you ever want your articles to rank on the search engines.
Usually the method that I have created for myself, is to generate an outline that I may use to write an article, but go through the outline, update it myself and then do a little research into the topics that are created with AI to write an original piece of content.
While I may go back to the ChatGPT4 system and create some research terms or subjects, I will do all of the research manually.
Ultimately, this has been my go to brainstorming site when I have writer’s blog, or more often than not, because it’s super easy and super efficient.

Need a Photo? Check out the AI Image Generator at fortor.com
If you will look at the image above…I created that with the image generating AI software at fortor.com. It took about 15 seconds. Total time working on the photo and getting it to this site? 30 seconds.
So what did I type in the prompt to generate this photo?
“Create an image of AI in front of a computer screen”
That’s it. I grabbed it up and put it at the top of this post for my image.
The AI generator at fortor.com is one of those, fun to play with sites. You will get free credits when you sign up, which will allow a few images to be created, but typically you will pay around .05 cents per image you create or .0157 cents is you create an annual plan.
I don’t know about you, but finding images is not super hard, but can be a pain when you want to find the right one and then there is the whole copywriting issue that you run into.
The “royalty free” sites that many of us use are great, can run up costs for someone operating on a shoestring budget. This AI image generator can be a good alternative for creating the images you need for your content.
Need to Re-write an Article for Additional Sites? AI Has You Covered
Sometimes writing articles is cool…other times it’s just way too time consuming.
In order to be efficient, a lot of us re-write the articles that we have created to put on different platforms. I have an article on artificial intelligence, I can make 5 articles for just a few minutes longer than it took to write the original.
So, in order to be more efficient, and hopefully effective, you could use quillbot.com.
Quillbot allows you to take your articles and re-write them creating more articles that you can post to your blog or post to different article sites or wherever.
Obviously, this will allow you to post original content to multiple platforms allowing you to work on creating different content elsewhere.
You could even take an article generated from an AI program and re-write the article using quillbot and post that content. I may do that in a bind, but I believe that it is still better to write the content yourself, from your research.
Ultimately, artificial intelligence programs are quite useful to use in your marketing efforts, but I still wouldn’t solely rely on them.
In years to come, perhaps things will get a lot better and the artificial intelligence programs will be indistinguishable from the human touch.
For now, well they make great assistants and will elevate your efficiency as an online marketer.
