Platform Summary

It’s been fascinating to watch the development of AI to write copy, and it looks to be finally here and commercially viable.  The advantage is the ability to write a lot of different copy quickly in order to test and see what works.  Writing copy is time consuming and you never know what works until you do it and throw it out there.  But the ability to have AI do it quickly, with many variations, that can be deployed and tested quickly, dramatically reduces the time and cost to finding what works for marketing and sales.  See this article about a startup that is at the leading edge.
