AI in content marketing and SEO

When ChatGPT rose to fame in February 2023, it changed content creation once and for all. Content creation used to be a time-consuming process that could take days to generate content ideas and write copy, while today, it could take only a few hours with the help of AI.

This third article of the Enhancing go-to-market with human-managed AI series explores how to integrate generative AI into your content strategy to create high-quality, unique content that resonates with your target audience and brings results.

Let your persona profiles guide your content strategy

AI tools can be very useful when generating ideas for content calendars. Once you’ve built up a few profiles of your ideal customers, you’ll be better equipped to provide AI with a comprehensive description of who your content should be made for and generate content topics that are relevant to them.

Generate a content calendar using AI

Imagine you work for a B2B marketing software company and need to come up with a monthly content calendar. We have already created customer profiles and will take one of them to ask AI to generate a monthly content calendar, focusing on that buyer persona’s goals, challenges and interests. Therefore, our prompt will look the following way:

Generate a monthly content calendar for the month of March 2024 for a B2B marketing software company’s website blog. The goal is to build trust in the brand and nurture customer relationships through content. The content calendar topics should be focused on and target the following ideal customer profile (ICP):

Persona 1: The Digital Marketing Expert

Name: Sophia Nguyen
Age: 35
Location: London, United Kingdom
Job Title: Marketing Communications Executive
Company Size: Medium-sized (50-250 employees)
Industry: Digital Marketing
Short Bio: Sophia has a degree in Communications and over ten years of experience in digital marketing, having worked her way up from a content writer to her current executive role. She is highly skilled in crafting compelling marketing strategies that leverage the latest digital trends to drive brand awareness and engagement.

We entered the prompt requesting to generate a monthly content calendar. Here is the output AI produced:

AI tools can be very useful and effective in generating content ideas and writing copy. However, since AI is trained on existing material, the content isn’t always 100% original. Therefore, human intervention is vital to ensure that content is reliable, meets desired standards and is relevant to your target persona.

Additionally, your competitors could get similar content recommendations as you have the same or akin target audience. That’s why we recommend thoroughly analysing AI-generated content to ensure it is unique, engaging, and tailored to your specific market and customer needs.

How to write AI prompts to generate accurate content

When the content topics are ready, you can start writing AI prompts to generate blog articles. We put some useful tips together to help you guide AI in the right direction so you’ll get the best possible outputs:

  1. Give AI clear and concise instructions by following the 5W1H rule (what, who, when, where, why, how).
  2. Avoid ambiguity in your prompts, as it might confuse AI, leading to inaccurate and irrelevant responses. 
  3. Provide some context and include any background information to help AI understand your request better.
  4. If needed, give additional instructions to refine the output. 

Here is one example of an AI prompt we wrote to create a social media post promoting a marketing software company’s development update: 

Write a short social media post copy (60-80 words) for a B2B marketing software company’s LinkedIn page to share its latest development update. Mention the new features, including a social media scheduling tool, more email design capabilities and an updated admin panel. Highlight the value users will receive with the new platform features, such as increased productivity, improved UX and more informed business decisions.

Humanise AI content

Your brand voice is the way you communicate to your audience. As AI content can often sound a bit unnatural and monotonous, you should consider editing it to align with your company’s tone of voice, style and identity. It will help you remain consistent across all marketing channels, set you apart from the competitors and build rewarding customer relationships.

Optimise AI content for SEO

Google doesn’t penalise AI-generated content as long as it’s helpful, engaging and high-quality. However, if you want to achieve better results, you need to optimise AI content for SEO. AI tools sometimes struggle to follow some instructions, especially those related to word count. That’s why you should edit headings, meta tags and keywords if you want your content to rank high in search.

As you know how to create engaging and useful content with AI, you can use this knowledge to write compelling marketing messages and sales pitches for your ad and outreach campaigns.

In the next article of the Enhancing go-to-market with human-managed AI series, we deep-dive into AI’s influence on advertising and sales, showing how it can assist and enable businesses to execute targeted ads and augment outreach efforts.
