With thousands of AI tools available, businesses should keep up and use these technologies for their profit. It takes a lot of trying and testing to find the perfect tools that are easy to work with and perfectly deliver your brand values. But if you don’t know where to start, we have come up with a pretty solid list of some affordable tools you can try.
Step up your content creation game in marketing. You might be missing out on areas just because you don’t have enough human resources. Marketing is not just email writing and newsletters, but also improving SEO, blog writing, and more niche tasks like content research, and finding the right brand voice.
Here are some tools to get you started with:
Sure, there are a ton of AI tools for creating content. But you must train them many times, make edits, and monitor the output to fit your brand voice. Jasper was made specifically for businesses, so it performs far better when it comes to creating content that sounds like you. It is one of the best tools of 2023 for creating newsletters, social media content, and blog articles.
Since Jasper lies on the bit expensive side, especially for small businesses, you might consider trying Beacons AI which can also customize your brand voice. It is perfect for creating pitches and personalized emails for your business.
87% of marketers say video editing has helped them drive their sales. It is a great way to connect with your audience, deliver, and gain traction towards your products.
However, a common mistake small businesses make is not producing enough promotional videos. Through AI tools, you don’t have to worry about video editing taking too long.
Check out these video editing tools:
Lumen5 processes your script, generates AI-based voiceovers, identifies scene transitions, and selects relevant stock media. With just a single click after inputting your script, you receive a complete, ready-to-publish video.
You must be familiar with CapCut, a beginner-friendly video editing tool. Well, it also has some AI features like auto-captioning, text-to-speech, and script-to-video. Although the script-to-video feature can be made better, it does a decent job of turning your script into a video with a narrator and stock images and videos or your own provided content. And it is free if you have a TikTok account!
