Am I the only one who feels like there's lack of authenticity in content/marketing when you KNOW its automated. For example, when I receive an email blast and I KNOW it's not authentic or personalized to me i don't even open it. Anyone have any advice/tips on how to be more efficient using automation but not lack authenticity.

Anyone using OpenAI playground for chatGPT? I find it gives way better outputs and you don't have to keep repasting in your data. @Stephen G. Pope have you created prompts for your program yet or is that part of the Kontent Database?

https://theaiconsultant.notion.site/Cialdini-s-Six-Weapons-of-Influence-AI-Edition-2287a62df2a54849bb3cc319fbe3a02c This was put together with help of Chat GPT, Bard, and Midjourney and Canva and Notion this evening (took about 4 hours in total as redid the prompts a couple of times and was checking out the veracity of studies/real life examples and amending if needed..). I expect if some norm (The large number who still haven't used AI) was working for a company and asked to write a report with graphics it would take better part of a week :) Does anybody have a neat way to add headings to images automatically?

Mayur pointed me to this AI video service. I'm blown away. It made a cool promo video for the Kontent Engine DB, and All I did was provide this simple prompt: "I've got a new product that can organize and automate the creation, production and distribution process for a content team" Then I told the AI the audience โ†’ Marketing teams And the feel โ†’ Minimal And the platform โ†’ YouTube I also made one small tweak to the script itself (which you can modify and it will rerender the video). I had it include a more specific problem statement. The original was a little generic (I wrote this out manually in their editor). I also include the tools by name, Airtable, Zapier, Google Drive, etc. I added this manually to the script as well. I probably added 10 to 15 words. And here is the end result. I could see fine tuning it a lot. I'm not blown away by the b-roll they used, but I think with the help of a real editor to fill in the video with real footage, it could be pretty cool. It's a cool headstart on the process. The main thing I noticed was that the AI spent most of the time articulating the problems and the possibility of a better future instead of features. Which I thought was interesting. Watch and let me know what you think in the comments!

Iโ€™ve been running some training on Ai weekly for the last month or so and answering questions posed on a slido. Feel free to add questions below and Iโ€™ll do my best to answer or find an answer. I also know a fair amount on midjourney as have generated now over 13k prompts

Hi all, Creative and copy are creative and copy - whether it's for social media's "free" newsfeeds or to upload to social media ad management platforms. The only thing different is that the 1) cost structure is different and needs to be tracked2) the data collected is different (ROAS, CPL etc) 3) the technology used (example analytics tools, ad automation tools, ) is different - and all those data points need to be included in the Airtable DB. I'd love to hear from MEDIA BUYERS leveraging Airtable + Integrations for automation, simplification and scale! (minimal example of the kinds of things we can do connecting airtable w/ the APIs of the major social platforms.... don't necessarily need zaps if we can connect straight to the APIs - or am I missing something? COULD BE! ). Feedback welcome.

I was surprised to find that IG Stories required you to upload individual images instead of something like a PDF (with multiple images in it). Which really created a workflow nightmare for review/feedback and posting. So I set out to create an automated solution that removed all the pain points involved. It's pretty cool, I ended up using a PDF (for the majority of the workflow) and then used automation to break it into multiple images and then send those images (via a folder link) to the person who is posting. It could also be sent to an auto poster like Metricool if you wanted. I made a quick video on it here โ†’ https://bit.ly/46aj4AZ Would love your feedback.

Hi, I'm really excited to be here, but feeling like a total newb at the moment...I upgraded my zapier last night and set up some automations (Following the steps in Stephen's Youtube videos - the google drive to airtable to youtube one, and then just the simple google drive to youtube one...they test fine but when I turn them on they haven't triggered automatically once. Is there something simple I'm missing? Thanks!

Hey! I've set up my Airtable using the Inbox > Processed zap. But now when I want to schedule things to Metricool, it wants me to have the original file in the record, which I don't have. (I guess it can't pull from a Drive link?) Is there a way to get this original file into Airtable without adding it manually AND as part of the initial import?

If I'm zapping client content from Airtable to a Metricool autolist... do I need a zap for each autolist, since the content is going to different platforms and lists? This is a lot of zaps and Airtable views lol. 10 clients each with 4 platforms and 2 autolists each platform... ๐Ÿคฏ anyone have any hacks for this?

Have you got a contact us page on your website? Well, it could actually be costing you money, and here's why. If you generated a lot of inquiries in a short space of time you'd be totally overwhelmed by the replies now we all know what usually happens with most contact us pages. They get forgotten may be for a few minutes but in most cases, it can be days, weeks , even never in some businesses. Did you know that by waiting 30 minutes to reply to an inquiry your odds of qualifying that lead reduces by 21 times compared with answering in 5 minutes? It's actually even higher if you are one of those very rare companies that reply in less than 2 minutes. But realistically very few companies answer a request on a contact us page in anything like 30 minutes. Does yours? You see your customer doesn't distinguish between a phone inquiry, a social media page inquiry, or a website inquiry they expect an immediate answer (or at least almost immediate) So why is it that so many web designers still put "contact us" pages on websites? Itโ€™s because everyone a few years ago was told that it was a way to stop receiving spam emails only problem is its also the most effective way of losing clients and subsequently sales. But I have good news for you there is an easy solution to this problem which can easily be installed on any website in a few minutes. It will allow your business to send a message directly from your website (hands-free) and also continue the conversation with your prospect on their mobile phone or PC at their convenience. This means you don't miss any inquiries, your customer gets the answers they need quickly and you get sent a text prompt to let you know you have a new request or in many cases even appointments booked in your calendar. When a prospect completes the form by entering their name, email address and ideally mobile phone number an AI Sales Bot (or Droid) can start a conversation with your visitors and help them or book them in your schedule based on their responses.

Holy moly! I just got back my "professional voice" from an AI company called elevenlabs.io. I simply copy and pasted in the LinkedIn post I did today without editing it. There are some tweaks that need to be made for sure. Like I need to spell my last name something like "Lof lin" for it not to say "laughย ๐Ÿ˜‚ lin"!! And spell out "101" like "one o one" so it doesn't say "one hundred one". Oh yea, and not use funny lines like "amiright?!" because it just doesn't get that! haha But damn! This thing is pretty much dead on. This will save me a ton of time recording audio books, certain videos and even one of the podcasts I'm creating. You probably don't know what I sound like but if you give this a listen you will! ๐Ÿ˜ Have a great weekend!

As someone who's never used Airtable, (or spreadsheets in general really) I've been getting more and more interested with trying to learn it in order to better understand its capabilities to apply to my specific situation. I'll confess I haven't bought Stephen's base template/kontent engine yet, and it's partly because I want to understand why things work the way they do and not have the fear of messing stuff up and not being able to fix it because I don't know how it works. So I'm wondering if any of you guys are also beginners to airtable and how you've started out learning it? I've been going through their youtube videos so far and they're alright. I'm also aware of the fact that I have a tendency to spend tons of time setting up stuff like productivity systems/project management software etc. and never using it (thanks adhd). I feel like Airtable has more potential to actually stick due to its customizability. So like I said I've been following their youtube videos and trying to build a dumbed-down version from scratch myself for now to get a hang of it. Kind of an all-over-the-place post; is any of that relatable for anyone?

Hello New Friends! I stumbled upon this wonderful video and got right to work trying to duplicate Stephens process of building a "Content Distribution Database". I swear I followed the template to a T but for the life of me ... I cannot get my zaps to work! I need help from my friends! *I've turned the zap on and off. Run it manually. When I test the triggers and actions independently it works but when I try to add a new file ... nada. Nuttin' honey. Any suggestions before I get my first grey hair? ๐Ÿ˜… Thanks a bunch!

I was wondering what content management workflow tool you currently use to organize, create, and manage your content. Whether it's for blogs, websites, social media, or any other type of content, I'd love to know what platform or software you find most effective and why.

I remember my first conversation with Stephen... I then remember second guessing myself. Outside of Gary Vee and a few others, @Stephen G. Pope is one of my favorite online people. @Stephen G. Pope does not gatekeep information. I feel he says and shares EVERYTHING. Anyway, following his amazing lead... I'd like to introduce Momento. Momento.fm (https://bit.ly/momentoai) is an amazing Ai Long form to short form video creation tool. I spoke to the founder... they still have some hiccups but it is ready for prime time. Once they release the API ... just wow! I created the clip with Momento. Now thinking about camera placement and a few other things. What can you do: Long Form to Short Form Post and Schedule to Social Media Ai titles, article generation, blog posts, social media ideas.... I could go on Multiple speaker recognition and more Stephen, thank you my man.

Not sure if anyone's using gling.ai yet, but I played with it over the weekend, and it seemed to work well for longer-form content at editing out all of my mistakes (and there are plenty!). Here's a video I watched on how to use it.

Hi Stephen. Out of curiosity, why use Air Table and not Google Sheet, since you already use Google docs? Or AppSheet, which Google bought? Are those more expensive? Just a curious lad.

Discovered a SUPER cool AI software for anyone creating video content ๐Ÿ”ฅ Not sure your guys' thoughts on this if you're starting out... This AI software will take any long-form video content and splice it up into a bunch of reels and short form video AND add captions! This could literally save hours every week! Could be awesome to take a 'weekly moment' like a podcast or live event and chop it up into short-form content for the week! Also free for up to 75 mins of upload :) https://vidyo.ai/

If youโ€™re over the hump of starting to create contentโ€”you might quickly find yourself making too much. And not reusing what youโ€™ve already done by repurposing it effectively. Youโ€™ll find yourself burning out and on that content hamster wheel. One challenge of repurposing content is simply making it accessible and easy to find. We often bury a lot of the work we do in places we just donโ€™t even think to reuse it. Like when you create a YouTube video and its thumbnailโ€”how often do we reuse the thumbnail? How often do you repurpose that YouTube video into a square video for LinkedIn? Or when you write copy for a video you post on LinkedInโ€”how often do you reuse the copy as a text post later? Or on Twitter as a thread? Or have ChatGPT turn that content into a series of Tweets? Iโ€™m not saying we NEVER do thisโ€”Iโ€™m just saying we donโ€™t set ourselves up to make it so easy we ALWAYS do it. We just tend to think of copy for a video, or an image for a video and second-class content that only supports the primary piece. When I set up all my automated systems I did it in a similar way. When you store the video, image, copy, and title in one logical container it simply makes it hard to reuse (from a technical computer science point of view). So Iโ€™ve been rethinking all that in a newer version of all my automated systems. Where each piece of content is considered a primary piece of content. And instead, you create various bundles as needed from automated workflows that can then distribute those bundles. And you can mix and match, and use ChatGPT to reformat and renew it. You can check out how Iโ€™m thinking about it in a new video. Check it out here: https://youtu.be/yaL4UNDRyWI
