If you do a google search for ‘best AI tools for writers’, there are 653 million search results. It’s overwhelming and confusing, and frustrating. I have researched, tried and tested many such tools. Here are a list of my favourite tools at the moment. If you are looking for a place to start, this is it:

  1. Notion: I absolutely LOVE Notion. For many reasons. It is a fantastic tool for project management, note-taking, filing articles, organizing your work; and has a really good AI tool inbuilt so you don’t have to go out of the platform to use AI for any of your work.

Why use: Project and task management, note taking, AI assistant and AI writing tool all in one.

Who should use: As a writer or journalist starting out with generative AI this is the only tool you need.

Cost: Free with 20 AI prompts. $10 per month for AI tool.

  • Jasper: Jasper is the first tool I started with, and paid a whopping $500 for a year’s subscription, plus $20 per month for Jasper Art. If you work in marketing, PR or any type of brand related content creation, Jasper is a better tool to use purely because it is built to be a marketers assistant. 

Why use: All things marketing related are covered. 50+ templates, brand voice integration, unlimited prompts, browser extension. If you work in communications or marketing, this tool will help you speed up your work x 3 times in my opinion.

Who should use: Marketing and communications professionals, for personal use.

Cost: $40 per month for Jasper AI (without Jasper Art). If you have small team, for $99 per month, 3 people can access it.

  • Content At Scale: As a communications and PR professional looking to improve my output, I recently discovered the tool Content At Scale (CaS). As the name suggests, the tool helps you create content at scale.

I’ve spent a lot of time researching the tool and find it mind blowing what it can do, especially for a PR, communications or marketing agency. And that’s the reason it was built, to scale content marketing services. If you work at an agency or in the communications department at a company, this is the tool to deploy for your team.

Why use: An excellent tool for a PR, marketing or communications agency (or department), or even a startup, to deploy if they are looking to scale their content marketing output. It can create high-quality AI SEO content at scale and is built to meet Google’s EEAT requirements. It has extraordinary capability to generate research-backed long-form posts in minutes from a keyword.

Who should use: Deploy in your company for use by a team, to scale the team’s work. Companies, agencies and startups.

Cost: Plans start at $250+ per month; cheaper than hiring a full-time resource!
