How to Use AI to Easily Generate Content For Your Site
A cheap tool that prevents you from wasting time on basic tasks
Welcome, anons! This guide will cover how I use an incredibly cheap AI tool called Jasper (LINK) to help make my life easier with basic content creation tasks on my websites. I frequently use it to generate meta descriptions, post headlines, H2s, email headlines, and more.
The fact is that running any type of affiliate site (or a portfolio of sites) is an incredibly time-consuming endeavor. This might be a surprise to you if you follow the “affiliate influencers” 🤮 on Twitter who promise that you’ll “pay your bills in six months”. They are lying to you and making money by selling the dream. Luckily for you, I’m a turbo autist who is here to tell you the reality: you’re going to have to work your ass off if you want to see any type of success in this field (or any other online business).
With that said, you should take advantage of any tool you come across that can save you time without compromising quality. In 2021, that tool is AI-generated content. Can you generate 100% of the content on your website with AI? No. The technology isn’t there yet. But you can certainly take a lot of the time out of the equation by using Jarvis.
The quality of the outputs depends on the quality of your inputs. This means that you’re going to have to spend a little bit of time playing around with it before you figure out how to get it to spit out the results you want. Once you do, your life is going to be much easier.
This guide takes some of the guesswork out of the equation.
How to generate meta descriptions
Jarvis.AI has a ton of different templates that are somewhat hit or miss. One that I get a lot of value out of is the meta description template.
Writing meta descriptions isn’t that difficult, but I find that when I write them myself they eventually all start sounding the same. The meta description template on Jarvis.AI helps me shake things up and come up with more unique content.
To generate a meta description you’ll need your company name, blog post title, a brief description of the content, and a keyword. One you click “Generate AI Content”, it will spit out a few different recommendations that you can use to fill out the SEO title and meta description on your blog post. I recommend using Yoast (LINK) for this if you’re on Wordpress.
Generating H2 sub-headlines
The next task that I like to use AI for is generating H2s for my articles.
A lot of the sections that you have to fill out seem geared towards e-commerce, but you can use them for content-based sites as well. Instead of filling out the product name or product description, just enter your keyword and a description of what the article is about instead.
For H2’s, I like to use the “Witty” tone of voice. You should experiment with different voice tones to find one that matches the tone and writing style on your site.
Sometimes you have to play around with the inputs, but once you figure it out then Jarvis does a great job of spitting out H2’s that are compatible with Google while also appealing to readers.
Email subject lines
I get an insane amount of value out of using AI to generate email headlines for my mailing lists. These days, everyone’s inboxes are slammed with spam from all of the e-commerce and other mailing lists that they’ve signed up for. This makes it insanely hard to stand out. I’ve noticed a significant increase in my open rates when using AI-generated headlines compared to coming up with them myself.
I recommend choosing either “Friendly” or “Witty” for email subject headlines.
I usually use my email lists to promote my informational articles rather than product-focused content. I view email as a way to build a relationship with the readers on my sites and have them view it as a resource for information, rather than a site that’s just pushing products.
If you’re using a similar strategy, try to sum up your informational article in one or two sentences in the “What is the email about?” section. If you try to make in too much information then it negatively impacts the subject lines that Jarvis generates for you, in my experience.
I don’t normally like to write articles that are focused on just one tool, but in this case I think it’s worth it.
Mind-numbing, repetitive tasks like coming up with email subject lines and subheadings take up way too much time and drain you of the creative energy that you should be spending on growing your business. You should definitely take advantage of any cheap tools that can free you from the drudgery of day-to-day tasks whenever you find them.
One further note: Jasper does have a more expensive version that is designed to help you automatically write articles. When I played around with it I found that it kind of sucked and took way too much effort to use so I ultimately decided to go with the cheapest plan that they offer, which doesn’t include the long-form content editor.
Maybe one day in the future AI will be able to replace human writers, but that day isn’t today. You can use AI to automatically create basic content but when it comes to writing engaging articles there is currently no substitute for human beings.
