How I boost my Content Marketing with Contentyze in 2021
In the online world we’re living right now, content marketing is key. Engaging your audience through valuable texts, pieces of information, newsletters and more is crucial to build a brand in the long run. Moreover the creator market is on the rise — people consume more content online than ever before and this trend won’t change in 2021. That’s why the best strategy to meet your audience is to create where they consume content already.
I’ve been experimenting with the ‘passion economy’, the creator space, for many years and I’ve finally taken it to the professional level last year, in 2019: going all in on Medium, YouTube, personal blogs and social media. Contentyze came to the whole picture at the end of 2019 when I was thinking how can I employ automation in my writing and recording. I’ve experimented with some algorithms before with pretty good results and I’ve decided it’s time to build my findings into a platform — Contentyze.
In this text I want to cover how I use Contentyze myself to write and edit texts. So let’s start.
When you login for the first time to the platform, you’re going to see the following screen:
Pretty empty text editor, right?
Now the most basic function in Contentyze is text generation. AI can actually write a text for you, but you need to give it something — a prompt: a sentence, a question, the more the better.
For example, if I were to work on a blogpost on how to write a good text, I would start simply with this question:
I put that in the “prompt field” and click on Generate button, choosing on the right that I want to have a short text of up to 250 words.
Then, after a little wait, Contentyze generates for me a text:
I got: “How to write a good text? Here’s a hack: use a list.
If you’re not a fan of lists, you can use them to cut and paste lines of code, or to make a list of words that are similar to each other in meaning.”
Pretty nice for a start.
I can use that insight to start working on the text from the angle of lists and organisation. I can take the beginning and use it as the next prompt to get a text on lists (adding a small thing at the end to direct the AI further).
Putting “How to write a good text? Here’s a hack: use a list to organise your text.” and clicking on Generate, I get this:
The text reads:
“How to write a good text? Here’s a hack: use a list to organise your text. You’ll begin with a list of all the things you’re going to do, which in turn will form the structure of your text. The list of things you’ll do is called a list of tasks. You can split your list into more manageable chunks, and organize your list so each task is a separate section. For example, you can divide your list into “the main points” and “the main points + a few things that go with them”.”
And then I keep on going. I put the whole text above as the prompt, choose long text (so up to 1000 words) and I click on Generate. After a minute I get:
The first sentences after my editing (just splitting into paragraphs and making certain phrases bold/italics) read:
“How to write a good text?
Here’s a hack: use a list to organise your text.
You’ll begin with a list of all the things you’re going to do, which in turn will form the structure of your text. The list of things you’ll do is called a list of tasks.
You can split your list into more manageable chunks, and organize your list so each task is a separate section. For example, you can divide your list into “the main points” and “the main points + a few things that go with them”. This will allow you to have your list of tasks in a way that’s easier to remember.
It’s also a good idea to have some kind of anchor point that will be the part of your text that you want to include in your list. For example, a relevant part of the text might be “a few points” or “a few things that go with them”.
The next section of your text, where you’re going to include a task, is called the task list. This section is very important because it’s where you’re going to include any other things you want to do. For example, you could include a check list of the things you’ll do, or a list of the things you’ll need to do. These items are called tasks. You can also create a list of tasks directly below the list of tasks. In this case, the tasks are called the tasks. This is where you will put the actual work of writing your text.”
This is a pretty good copy for the beginning of the text already.
The principle behind Contentyze is to work together with the platform to create an awesome text and explore potential narratives. Usually you won’t be able to get the perfect text with just one click of the button, but after a couple more clicks and some editing you’ll get a decent copy to use on your blog.
And in general the whole process of creation will be faster and more enjoyable as the text will evolve into directions that might suprise you.
