Chat GPT - Are Content Marketers Out of a Job?

Chat GPT and other AI Writers...

Chat GPT is all the rage. If you don't know what it is, it's an AI writing software that literally writes in almost perfect English - like the way we write. 

What is Chat AI GPT?

ChatGPT is a large language model developed by OpenAI, which uses deep learning techniques to generate human-like text based on the input it receives. GPT stands for "Generative Pre-trained Transformer," which refers to the model's architecture and how it was pre-trained on a large corpus of text data before being fine-tuned for specific natural language processing (NLP) tasks.

ChatGPT is capable of understanding and responding to a wide variety of natural language inputs, including questions, commands, and statements, and can generate text in a variety of styles and tones. It can be used for a range of NLP tasks, such as language translation, text summarization, and chatbot applications.

Chat GPT just wrote that. Sounds pretty good, right? Professional and articulate? So are we out of a job as content marketers?


Should you use Chat GPT?


AI is not new but it's getting better and while that's scary for some, it can be extremely helpful. We've used it to create code, replace bits of code in files here and there and even come up with code - BUT for actual content, blog writing, and articles, it is to be used VERY sparingly!

Why? Seems like a no-brainer, right?

Well, Google is ALWAYS looking for ways that people are spamming and gaming the system. And because Google IS AI, it can detect AI. "Real recognizes Real" and so forth (I hate that saying...)

Google's latest algorithm update, the "Helpful Content" update, which came out before ChatGPT, was already on the lookout for this type of writing. Teachers and professors are also on the lookout and banning it for obvious reasons. 

But can we replace blogging and articles with AI? For the time being NO. There are bots that can tell you if something is written by AI or a human and you know Google will be discounting those articles in a heartbeat. 

So are we just saying this to keep our jobs?


Well, yes and no. We've already talked to many clients that feel this is a great option! And while it may be good for rewriting some things, deciphering code, or just answering questions, using it for complete articles along with sites like Jasper, Bramework, and Rytr, is just not the best SEO practice right now.

We want ALL our clients' sites to be algorithm-proof and that means being proactive. Not cutting corners or finding easy ways to do things. We do the tedious, time-consuming SEO tasks that Google really appreciates AND rewards

If you can get in, feel free to play around with it. It can correct already written articles, write them in a different tone or answer questions but using it for full AI content is probably not the best SEO practice.

Thanks! We hope you have fun in the AI world - it's cool and scary and I think we need to tread lightly for fear of SkyNet…

Top of the morning.  As many things...what starts off as a fantastic idea evolves into a real pain in the arse.  People are becoming more and more turned off with non people interactions I believe.  mdm

Hi Tammy- Just like most of the gizmos and gadgets we've been given, if we use them as a tool to assist us, they can be helpful. As for reading personal blogs, I'd much rather read something written in the voice of the blogger...their own words.

I carry just enough antiquity to be wary and want to do thing the old-fashioned way, myself. But there are those out there that will try the quick fix.

Hello Tammy - it seems our technology toolbox continues to be increasing in sighs.  And there is a reason why I use that particular spelling.   Blaming it on "intelligence" or lack thereof is fine but the decision to do so is mine.

Good evening Tammy,

I read the article by Marte Cliff and so glad that Kathy Streib featured your post as I missed it. I can see some benefit but not enough with all that is going on and needs my attention to delve into. I prefer writing in my own words and voice..consumers need more personal interaction right now ..more than ever and are tired of gimmicks and robot type communication.

VERY true. People DON"T Want an AI communicating with them if they can help it.

What we might do is have the GPT app write a rough draft and then  make our own but I don’t really know where it’s going to go.

True. and you can even upload some of your own posts and have it write in your tone

Thank you Tammy for sharing your thoughts on ChatGPT. I've been diving into it deeper and find it fascinating. However, I wouldn't want it to write my blog posts for several reasons: 1. a blog is still - or should still be - a personal log 2. just like Lise pointed out, we learn by researching and writing 3. I don't want my posts to be hidden because of some algorithm, and 3. I wonder how similar articles turn out to be when they were written by ChatGPT about the same topic?

Boom! You hit the nail on all three heads there

I'm not a fan of this Tammy.  There is so much talk going on about it now and my biggest concern is ETHICS and BIAS.  Plus some of it sounds so darn FAKE.

Exactly! It's a slippery slope and one we must be careful of

Hi Tammy,

I don't think I go a day without hearing about Chat-GPT.  I use Grammarly to help with spelling and sentence structure and that is about as far as I am willing to go.  

Oh!  I certainly don't think you will be out of a job!

I remember when I needed a translation of my high school diploma, it took me a long time to find a place to go without problems. I recommend that you visit the website and find out more about these specialists who can help with this. They translated everything perfectly and therefore my son was easily able to go to college and so on after such a translation of the diploma. I hope you can use it too.

I am a content writer for a website named drift boss. After Chat GPT was released, I am also afraid this problem. However, it seems that Google also released new algorithm that restricts content made by Chat GPT. Therefore, I believe my role is still important
