AI vs. Human Expertise: Revealing the Top Tools for Crafting Effective PR Content

As Seen On

As modern Public Relations (PR) strategies continue to evolve, there is an increasing demand for tools that can improve key metrics and drive better results. Enter Artificial Intelligence. In an era where efficiency and speed are paramount, AI tools for content creation have surged to the forefront, changing the way we approach PR content.

At first glance, the stakes might seem high for human wordsmiths. If a machine could churn out articles, press releases, and social media posts at lightning speed, does this spell the end of human-written content? We decided to go on a journey of exploration, provoking a fascinating battle of verses: AI vs. Human Expertise.

We selected three AI models: OpenAI’s GPT-3.5, Google’s Bard, and Anthropic’s Claude 2, and put them head-to-head with human ingenuity. Four posts – one human-written, three AI-driven – were published across various platforms, including a blog, Facebook, and LinkedIn. Utilizing Google’s free Campaign URL Builder tool, we tracked the effectiveness of these posts, giving due focus to the new users they attracted to a landing page on Paine Publishing’s website.

The stage was set, but the results turned out to be an eye-opener.

Our human-written post highlighted four, award-winning case studies – an ode to the nuanced understanding and contextual grasp humans naturally possess. This served as our benchmark.

Meanwhile, the AI models were each tasked with producing PR contents of comparable length and complexity. GPT-3.5, Bard, and Claude 2 each took distinctive approaches to content creation, resulting in diverse styles and tones.

Through careful analysis and tracking, we observed that the AI tools displayed remarkable aptitude. Not just in terms of speed – which was to be expected – but also in optimizing content marketing strategies based on the principles of SEO.

Surprisingly, the AI-generated content managed to hold ground against its human counterpart, even performing better in some specific metrics. While the human-written PR content offered unrivaled depth, the AI tools often delivered more attention-grabbing headlines, better keyword integration, and a more engaging promotional tone.

One might argue that AI tools for PR content are still in their early stages, but the test results were solid affirmations of their potential. They achieved what they were designed to do – generate content quickly, iteratively, and focused on optimizing conversions.

As thrilling as the results were, it’s essential to understand that this does not mean the dethroning of human expertise in crafting PR content. Instead, it offers a powerful toolset that PR professionals can harness to refine their strategies and reach their target audiences more effectively.

Ultimately, the real value proposition lies in the integration of these AI tools with established human-led PR strategies. The intersection between AI and human expertise can lead to an innovative, data-driven approach to digital PR, providing new avenues for content personalization, consumer engagement, and brand storytelling.

Could the future then, be a fusion of AI and human-driven content creation? Quite possibly, yes. In a rapidly evolving digital landscape, the true victor might not be just ‘man or machine’ but ‘man and machine’ working hand in hand, creating a new paradigm for PR content generation.

So, whether it is GPT-3.5, Bard, Claude 2, or any other emerging AI tool, PR professionals have an impressive lineup to choose from. Each tool brings a unique strength to the table, and the most effective one would likely depend on your individual PR strategy and target audience.

Remember, the goal is not to rely solely on AI but to use it as a force multiplier that amplifies your existing capabilities. Together, AI and humans can unlock a whole new world of possibilities in the realm of digital PR.

Up until working with Casey, we had only had poor to mediocre experiences outsourcing work to agencies. Casey & the team at CJ&CO are the exception to the rule.

Communication was beyond great, his understanding of our vision was phenomenal, and instead of needing babysitting like the other agencies we worked with, he was not only completely dependable but also gave us sound suggestions on how to get better results, at the risk of us not needing him for the initial job we requested (absolute gem).

This has truly been the first time we worked with someone outside of our business that quickly grasped our vision, and that I could completely forget about and would still deliver above expectations.

I honestly can't wait to work in many more projects together!
