What is “Generative AI”?

Generative AI is a type of artificial intelligence that uses data and algorithms to generate new content from existing sources.

5 Ways To Use AI To Power-Up Your Freelance Writing

1. Brainstorming Blog Topic Ideas

Do you ever feel like you are stuck in a rut when it comes to coming up with fresh content ideas?

One of my favorite ways to use AI tools (I’m a big fan of is to work alongside the model to come up with unique and interesting blog post topics. By feeding it data about different topics within my niche, I can come up with hundreds of potential titles in no time.

For example, if I wanted to come up with some ways to boost the traffic for a local optometry business, I could feed the AI tool different keywords related to this topic, and within seconds it would come up with a list of potential titles that I can use for my blog post.
