There has been a gold rush in AI content writing and AI generative language tools. If you have been online since the start of year 2023, then you may have heard of ChatGPT and many other AI software that going to change the world, Is it? In this article, I will share with you my thought on AI and AI tools. I will be publishing more blog posts on the subject of AI for content writing, so stay tuned and subscribe to my newsletter. Just to remind you; a human wrote this article.
What is AI content Writing tools
There has auto-content generator tools online become this AI things. Before, content generator scrape the web for content and rewrote the content by changing a few words. Now this AI thing is different. It doesn’t copy and rewrite content. Instead, content from the website is used to train the AI and then AI generates unique content on its own. The content generated from AI is not just unique, but it has learning ability, and you command the AI to replicate a writing style and voice. This makes generative AI amazing.
For now, there are only a few AI tools or software developed by big company and the rest of the AI tools are built moreover. ChatGPT is developed by OpenAI, which is one of the popular AI tools. Other AI software such as Watson by IBM, Bard by Google, Bing Chat by Microsoft and a few others.
How AI content writing software works
An AI tool such as ChatGPT is a powerful language model that’s been trained on a vast amount of data. AI knows grammar, syntax, vocabulary, and has access to all the data on the internet. Not only that, AI also good at finding and filtering information that you need. This is going to change the way we search for information, so less Google searching now.
You can write content such as blog posts, email easily and simply by asking a a question and AI will answer your question directly. You can also control the AI content output by instructing AI. The AI instructing process is called “AI Prompt”. Now, there is a new job industry that is called Prompter, oh no, it’s called prompt engineering.
Generative AI also helps you with research, coding, music writing, graphics design and much more. This is where AI becomes scary as it can do anything that a human can do digitally but not like a human. ChatGPT is still in the development process and upcoming features are mind-blowing. As a blogger and freelancer, I might have to rethink my career.
What makes AI content writing tool “the best”
The tools that I am going to cover in this article focus on AI that helps people write content for business purposes. There are few reasons to choose an AI content writer over others. My favorite reasons are output of content, easy of use and integration with other applications. A great content output will help generate contents faster and save you time from editing the content. Even with great content output, I still recommend you to edit your AI generate content and make it more human-readable and engaging to read.
I like the chat feature in AI along with a built-in content editor. So, you can generate content, organize and edit without requiring external applications. Most AI software uses template features that make it possible for users to generate content based on objectives. That’s great for new users. But for advance users, custom prompts make better content output.
In a way, AI content writer tools are productivity tools, integration with other applications makes it even better. Some AI content writers have features that will allow you to publish your content on social media and your blog. Also, there is a rise in online software companies integrating AI into their workflow to make their software more advanced. For example, Canva is using AI to allow users to create AI text content during a graphic design. They also have integrated Text to Image AI into their platform. Notion is one of other online software companies that have integrated AI into their platform. In a way, Notion is a multiple – purpose project management tool, AI integration has made the Notion platform even better. I think almost all SaaS (software as a service) companies can benefit from AI integration and in the future we can assume this trend will continue.
Below are Top 10 AI content writing tools
As per other online articles on AI content writer tools, no one is recommending ChatGPT. It is because ChatGPT doesn’t have an Affiliate program. In my experience, ChatGPT is the best AI content writing tool available, and it’s free for regular users. ChatGPT is continuing to improve and soon in the near future it will make other AI tools absolute. You should focus on getting used to ChatGPT for content writing and research.

Microsoft, the creator of Bing AI Chat, is also invested in ChatGPT. Even though ChatGPT is the first AI content generative and more popular, some people are still choosing Bing Chat over ChatGPT. One feature that stands out on ChatGPT is the reference feature. You will know the website where Bing Chat finds information about to answer your question. You can use a reference link to research further, and I think it is the best feature. The reference link also helps website owners to get visitors to their website.

Once I discovered Rytr in 2021, I was existed about its future. I bought their lifetime AppSumo deal in 2021. I have been using the software to generate short form contents. Rytr is not good at generating long form content. Recently, they have added chat features like ChatGPT to their platform, but I am still using ChatGPT to write content even though I have paid lifetime subscriptions. I like Rytr’s easy to user-friendly interface and live content editors.

If you do Google on “AI content writing tools” then Jasper AI will come as the number one tool. It is because Jasper AI charges a high amount for their service and its affiliates love big commission. I hope you got the point. The only reason I am mentioning it here because of Jasper AI popularity. There is no reason to pay $$$ for an AI tool. ChatGPT costs $20 per month, there is no reason to pay any AI tool more than $20. All must all AI tools are built on ChatGPT API and content out put is same on all platforms except Bing and Bard AI.
