Let’s dive into some ways artificial intelligence (AI) is beneficial and why we should learn how to use it. AI has given me some serious life hacks to save time, be more efficient, and produce extra work. It has been a game-changer for me. I know it can seem like a far-off, sci-fi concept, but I promise, the benefits of AI are more approachable than you think.
In a nutshell, AI is a field of computer science that makes machines smart. I’m talking about computers that learn, adapt, and make decisions. Think of it as giving your personal computer a sprinkle of human-like intelligence. Consider it as a super-smart computer that can “think” in a way that’s a lot like you and me. It’s not a replacement for human creativity or divine wisdom; instead, it’s like a Swiss Army knife for the digital age—multi-faceted and incredibly useful.
AI Produced Short Videos
I produce the Warfare Parenting Podcast, and I have found an incredible way to repurpose my videos from the podcasts and expand the message through Vidyo.ai. This platform has been like manna from heaven for me. It automates the process of repurposing video content. So, instead of spending hours editing videos for different social media platforms, Vidyo.ai does the heavy lifting. This gives me more time to focus on my core mission: bringing hope and guidance to parents of prodigal children. I can quickly disseminate important messages across multiple channels without the tech headaches.
You can use a free or paid version of Vidyo.ai. Personally, I use the paid version because you get more short videos created and can upload more videos per month. To use Vidyo.ai, you upload your video and click the button. In seconds, several short videos are created. I usually choose the top three and post them on Facebook reels, Instagram as ???, and YouTube shorts.
AI Produces Written Content
My first exposure to AI as an author was the discovery of ChatGPT at chat.openai.com. I was utterly blown away by the speed of its output. I began digging deeper into how to ask questions and get the best performance out of this website. The experience was remarkable. But I wanted to ensure that I kept my voice and brand, so I researched other AI platforms and found Jasper.
Jasper is a free or paid AI software for original copywriting (Jasper.ai). After feeding Jasper your content or style guide, it creates content that’s in the correct tone of voice—specifically for you. It is the only AI platform you can upload knowledge about your business, audience, and content, so it produces what matches your brand.
Beyond keeping your voice, the most significant part is how Jasper can save you hours doing everyday copywriting tasks across your organization to streamline operations, giving your business a considerable return on investment. It’s almost like having another me! From writing emails to copywriting marketing blurbs, Jasper streamlines the whole process. Think about it: writing can be draining, but Jasper lifts some of that weight off my shoulders. I can focus more on what God has called me to do.
It also optimizes your content for search engine optimization (SEO). It scales up your marketing content from blogs and social media content. Ultimately you can save hours producing copywriting tasks.
To use it, you upload a blog, email, or whatever. Next you select whether it is an ad, press release, etc. In seconds your content is reworked and improved. You can add Jasper’s Chrome browser extension, so it is easily accessible when you are using your email, social media, or WordPress.
Alright, let’s tackle the elephant in the room: how does being tech-savvy align with a life of faith? It’s simple. God gifts us tools to help fulfill our divine missions. These AI wonders are just modern-day versions of David’s slingshot or Noah’s ark—a means to an end, but divinely significant. I see these tools as gifts from God to help me fulfill my mission. They don’t replace the human touch or divine intervention; they amplify them.
Embracing new technology can feel like stepping into uncharted territory. But remember, God often calls us to step out of our comfort zones. I can vouch for the credibility and effectiveness of Vidyo.ai and Jasper.ai. The fear of the unknown can hold us back, but we need to embrace technology just like we embrace new opportunities from the Lord. Vidyo.ai and Jasper.ai have mad my life simpler, more efficient, and allowed me to touch more lives than ever before. I hope you find them useful too!
