How To Use Canva Magic Write AI To Brainstorm Content Ideas

By now you have probably heard about ChatGPT and AI taking over the content world. If you haven’t, ChatGPT is a general-purpose chatbot prototype that is quickly becoming to go-to and highly influential in the AI-generated content world.

Now here’s the thing…I am all for technology and using tools to make your life easier and more efficient. But…I am not on board with letting AI and bots take over all of your content creation. There is no way AI can capture your unique voice or style, and those two things are so important to your messaging and conversions. If you start to just copy and paste content from ChatGPT or other AI tools, you will quickly blend in and it will be clear to your audience that your content isn’t authentic and they’ll check out.

What I suggest is using AI as a tool to help you brainstorm ideas if you struggle to think of content ideas. I never have a shortage of content ideas (hello, it’s kind of what I do), but I know that most small business owners do. Now, you can come to me to help you think of tons of unique content ideas, or you can turn to one of my favorite tools….Canva!
