If you are struggling to write well or consistently for your business, there are new affordable writing tools built with Artificial Intelligence (AI) that you should try.
They can help you write more, write faster, and write better.
They are designed to help you create clear, engaging content for any audience and they make it simple to create branded, beautiful, unique content that gets you noticed.
For this post, I have first compiled a list of AI-based tools (most of them have free trials).
The following table outlines the key distinctions between the popular tools in the market and their price points in 2021.

Benefits of using AI writing tools
Go over your writer's block
Writer’s block is not a myth. The best writers in the word dread it. But with these tools, you simply type in some words, ideas or concepts and it spits out many ideas to get you unblocked.
It makes writing fun.
I used to hate writing. I am a programmer by trade, I wrote code, not words. But now I can write for my business, because these tool help me find the write word, the right way to say what I want.
Better text quality
Finding the right word, the right sentence structure can be hard. But you can type things as they come out from your brain right into any of these tools, and it will show a better way to say it.
Find new topics and ideas
Searching for a topic? Simply type a word, phrase, or question and get thousands of relevant articles.

What I personally like about Copy.ai.
Their tool have a place where you can set the tone of what you want to write. Copy.AI allows to choose from Friendly, Luxury, Relaxed, Professional, Bold, Adventurous, Witty, Persuasive, Empathetic.
About the business
Copy.ai raised 2.9 million dollar in funding on March 16th 2021. This should allow to improve the tools and add features. Investors include Craft ventures, sequoia Capital and Atelier Ventures.
The founder Paul Yacoubian is both a founder and Investor.
Copysmith is similar to Copy.ai. Enter some seed text, and it will output some new ones.
One unique feature they have is their blog post generation. It can write full blog posts.
About the company
Copysmith was originally funded by a TechAccel grant from the McGill Engine in Montreal. It is currently private.
Conversion.ai is another tool built with a GPT-3 license. It is priced differently, it's cheaper for the entry plan, but with a limit on words. But it might be a great way to get started.
About the business
I have discovered Content Villain through their deal on AppSumo.
There are 2 unique things about them.
First, they have a bespoke service where they can create your own AI text generator. If you are not getting results from other tools, speak to them, they might be able to find a solution for you.
The second unique thing about them is their API development. By offering access to their tools (and GPT-3) through an API, (using tools like zapier, integromat, or your own code), there is a chance that we can see a crop of new tools and services popping up, or new ideas being generated.
About the business
CopyPro has blueprints pre-written (like sales pages, email sequences, etc) and is using AI to tweak the copy for your business.
If you are looking for a tool for a sales funnel, have a look at CopyPro.

OthersideAI - Email writing tool
OthersideAI is another tool currently in Alpha that sits in your email inbox and allows you to write a summary (a list of bullet points) of what you want to write in an e-mail. It will then convert those bullet points into a proper full-sentenced email.
They raised 2.6 million dollars in 2020.
You can pre-register to get access.
If your business has not yet embraced AI-based tools, it's a great chance to start.
Business is about communicating the value of what we do, and those who use Artificial intelligence will resonate better and with more people.
