Write First-Draft Content In Seconds

The hardest part with writing content is usually getting started. Mia can help you write a first-draft copy in seconds. In fact, Mia even helped write the first-draft of this guide chapter. As the marketer on the project, you’ll need to provide Mia with the strategic direction to get it started. Give Mia a brief, outline, and/or key points that you want to cover, and she can create a first-draft for you in just a few seconds. The more direction you give Mia, the better the results. Some helpful details you could provide Mia could include:

Target Audience

Specify the audience for your content. This could include demographic information, interests, & pain points. This can help Mia understand who you’re writing content for and tailor the tone & language accordingly.

Key Message Or Objective

Clearly outline the main message or objective of the content. Whether it’s to inform, persuade, educate, or entertain (to name a few), providing this information will help Mia focus on the desired goal of the content.

Desired Format Or Structure

Specify the format or structure of the content, such as a blog post, social message, or email. You can provide specific guidelines or requirements for the content including word count, headings, bullets, etc.

Project Specific Details

Add key points or information that needs to be included in the content. This could be information like  relevant data, stats, examples, product details, promotion timelines, or event details.

SEO Keywords

If you are creating content for SEO, you can let Mia know which keyword(s) or keyword phrases are important to you. This can help Mia optimize the content for better search visibility.

Brand Voice Or Style

Give Mia details about your brand voice & style. This can include tone, language, or any specific words or phrases you want to add or avoid. None of these suggested details are required when chatting with Mia, but they can impact the quality of your first-draft. You can continue to provide additional Mia direction in the chat if her first version isn’t strong enough. Once Mia writes your first-draft, you can focus your energy on the most important part - reviewing, editing, & perfecting the content for your final draft.

Archive Chats For Your Team And Records

Chats with Mia are archived in each project. Anyone on your team can reference, review, and join chats with Mia. This makes it easy for your team to collaborate on projects together with the help of Mia. For example, maybe the lead writer creates the blog post first-draft using Mia. Then they ask Mia to help generate some headline ideas for their blog post. But another team member is responsible for writing the social messages to promote the post. Mia remembers the earlier conversations, so your social media strategist can easily get a first-draft of social messages by continuing the initial conversation.

Convert Responses To A Text Editor

Best of all, you can easily convert any of Mia’s responses into a Text Editor with a click. This means you can easily jump into editing any of Mia’s responses without leaving your project. Or you can copy the response and paste it into an attached Google Doc, Microsoft Doc, or wherever you draft and edit copy. Once you convert your response to a Text Editor, you can focus on editing, reviewing, and perfecting Mia’s draft to match your brand voice & standards before you publish your new content.
