AI is fast becoming viral.
Every day, more and more people are becoming aware of ChatGPT and how much of a game changer it is.
As you probably already know, if you’ve been practicing dictation blogging, outlining is one of the hardest parts of the whole dictation writing process.
In fact, a lot of the heavy work is done at the outlining stage.
You start out with your keyword.
You then analyze it based on search intent.
You ask yourself questions like, “Why would people use this specific keyword or phrase instead of many different variations?”
By getting a clear answer to that central question, you then move on to structuring the article.
Keep in mind that SEO is useless if the article itself is useless.
It has to deliver value to the people reading it, and they will only see that article once they type in a certain keyword.
This means you better deliver on the intent behind them typing that keyword instead of a wide range of other variations.
This is where ChatGPT and other AI Writing tools come in.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re using Jasper or any other variant.
You have to be clear on what the search intent is behind that keyword.
Once you have a good idea of that intent, you can then use ChatGPT and other tools to generate titles that are related to your target keyword.
This will enable you to pick from different directions.
You can then type in a prompt asking ChatGPT to expand on a specific direction that you like.
It can come up with an overview and many others.
The key here is to use these tools to get a head start.
If you’re going to use them to basically spit out your blog post, you’re selling yourself short.
A lot of the times, the information is inaccurate. It’s also easy to spot. There are all sorts of tools available now that can quickly detect AI-written content.
It stands to reason that it’s only a matter of time until Google starts cracking down on sloppy AI Writing.
Pay close attention to what I just said.
I said, “sloppy AI Writing.” I didn’t say AI Writing in general.
I have some bad news for professional writers who make their living producing online content: AI content is here to stay.
The good news is sloppy AI Writing will be found out and eventually weeded out.
It is obviously robotic. It isn’t fact-checked. It doesn’t care about using engagement, and there’s probably going to be a lot of algorithmic penalties applied to this type of content in the near future by Google and other search engines.
After all, Google wouldn’t want the Internet to be flooded by such shallow content.
With that said, though, your AI-enhanced or AI-assisted must not be sloppy, and this is where dictation comes in.
The Hallmarks of High-Quality AI-Assisted Online Content
Here are quality guidelines that you should consider following if you don’t want your AI-assisted content to get penalized by Google and, most importantly, to deliver maximum value to the people reading your content.
It Truly Answers the Question
AI Writing can skirt around the question and can also generate broad answers.
But when it comes to actually delivering on the search intent behind a target keyword, humans are still needed.
That’s your job! AI can’t do that for you.
When you use different questions to generate answers from ChatGPT to create content, those answers must go straight to the point and deliver value.
It Engages the Reader
High-quality, AI-assisted content engages readers.
As a writer, you know that people are emotional at some level or other.
Your content must trigger some sort of emotional response.
You must use your content to push different emotional buttons to get the reader to pay attention to what you’re saying and fully understand your message.
This is, of course, crucial for calling the reader to action.
AI can’t do this.
They can only use templates, and a lot of those are very ham-fisted and don’t really fit the specific themes of the content generated by software.
You have to modify, shape, or even rewrite certain portions of your AI-assisted text through dictation to make this happen.
Effective Content Tells Stories
Highly effective online content doesn’t just tell people what to do.
They don’t just share information.
They tell stories.
They demonstrate the key concepts or key facts that the content contains.
This is why human-generated content will continue to predominate.
Human beings navigate the world through stories.
Every single second, we are bombarded with all sorts of stimuli from the outside world.
We use stories to make sense of these stimuli, and this is where you come in.
By dictating your content after looking at the broad parameters and factual starting points delivered by AI, you can produce content faster while, at the same time, maximizing the humanity of your content.
ChatGPT has a standard reply when it comes to questions involving its opinion.
This standard reply actually goes to the heart of the limitations of AI.
Of course, there are many different hacks around this, but eventually, you will still end up hitting a wall.
When you tell a convincing story that appeals to people on many different emotional levels and uses a wide range of sensory inputs, your content stands head and shoulders above your other AI-assisted competitors.
The Final Word on Dictablogging and AI
Make no mistake. AI-assisted content creation is here to stay.
It is a welcome development, but you have to use it right.
You cannot be lazy, nor can you be sloppy.
Using dictation and dictation blogging, you can maximize the amount of content you produce every single day while, at the same time, increasing quality.
Forget about sacrificing quality.
With the amount of volume you can work with and wrap your head around and dictate, you can get enough practice to hone your dictation writing abilities.
This is actually a good thing because the volume gives you the opportunity to focus on the most important aspect of dictation writing: Creativity.
I’ve been dictation blogging for over 9 years now and it’s truly changed my life. I teach fellow bloggers the ins and outs of voice blogging so they can take their productivity to a whole new level.
