Humans: The Irreplaceable Ingredient in the Age of AI


Over the last few months, AI has become the new hot topic everyone’s buzzing about; whether we like it or not, it’s become a transformative force reshaping how we do business. The marketing landscape has undergone a profound transformation from strategy to copywriting. It’s time to embrace the integration of artificial intelligence. With the explosion of ChatGPT and other AI writing tools into the marketplace, one question frequently arising now is this: Can AI-generated copy replace human writers in content creation? 

Although we predict AI will revolutionize the marketing industry in areas like efficiency, research, and content ideation, its purpose is not to supplant human marketers. By leveraging these technologies, marketing teams can optimize and streamline their approaches, achieving greater efficiency in producing content and reaching their target market. This means less time spent on monotonous tasks, and more time spent on building strategy, optimizing campaigns, and refining content.

AI Copy vs. Human Copy

Human writers and AI copywriting tools both have their own set of limitations. While AI technology is undoubtedly impressive, it falls short when generating original content. These tools primarily analyze existing human-written articles and mix them to create something "new." This can unintentionally raise copyright and content ownership issues. 

Another critical aspect to consider is data and privacy protection. AI technologies cannot “self-police”; they heavily rely on customer data to feed their servers. So, you can’t assume your data is confidential. Tools like ChatGPT train and improve themselves on existing text, even the one you input. So if you rely heavily on AI to write content for you, your company’s sensitive data or intellectual property can be used without your explicit permission. 

AI writing cannot match the complexity, nuance, and wisdom inherently present in human writing. Human writing possesses a depth of understanding and insight that AI writing cannot replicate. Although AI writing can effectively produce coherent, grammatically correct, well-structured content, it lacks richness, originality, and emotional depth. Due to these limitations, AI writing may face challenges in generating content that is both relatable and captivating to readers.

Some benefits of using AI for copywriting include reducing the time required for writing tasks, facilitating brainstorming, speeding up the writing process, and handling repetitive tasks effectively. These tools are valuable aids, but AI-generated content still needs human oversight and editing to ensure the finished product is 100% factual, unique, and engaging for your readership. 

Take a look at this example of ChatGPT content vs. AI-assisted human content to see the difference. 

Written by ChatGPT:

Landscape lighting, with its resplendent allure, bestows a heightened sense of grandeur upon your abode, elevating its curb appeal to ethereal heights. As twilight's embrace ensconces your surroundings, the judicious placement of luminous beacons artfully showcases architectural nuances, majestic arboreal sentinels, and flourishing verdure. A symphony of light and shadow orchestrates an enchanting visual spectacle, beckoning guests to embark upon a sojourn of admiration. Enwrapped in this luminous embrace, your property emerges as a captivating masterpiece, etching an indelible impression upon all fortunate enough to behold its radiant splendor.

Another benefit of landscape lighting is increased curb appeal. A well-lit home creates a warm and inviting atmosphere that makes a great first impression on visitors. Outdoor lighting can highlight your home's unique features, such as architectural details, landscaping, and decorative elements. This can boost the neighborhood's charm, increase your home's overall value, and make it more appealing to potential buyers when you are ready to sell. [Click here to read the full article.] 

AI models can read and respond to questions, but they need a deeper understanding of context. The responses generated by AI are based on patterns and information present in their training data rather than proper comprehension or interpretation of ideas. Tools like ChatGPT cannot think spontaneously or go beyond what has already been created. 

Asking specific questions and providing the correct data training set can lead to more accurate and valuable AI-generated responses. AI can be used appropriately but always with human expertise and guidance.
