If you’re a business owner, chances are you’ve heard of Artificial Intelligence (AI), but did you know it can be used to help optimize your social media presence? AI is becoming increasingly integrated into businesses’ operations, from customer service to marketing. It can also be used to support local business owners to maximize the potential of their social media strategy. So let’s explore how AI can create an effective social media presence.
What is AI?
Before we dive deeper into this topic, let’s quickly define what Artificial Intelligence (AI) is. At its core, AI is computer programming that mimics human behavior by utilizing algorithms and data-driven decision-making. It uses machine learning to make predictions or decisions based on existing data. For example, suppose a business has collected customer data. In that case, an AI algorithm could determine which advertisement would most likely resonate with them based on past purchases or interactions with the company.
How Does AI Help Local Businesses?
Regarding local businesses, AI can help them better understand their target audience and how best to reach them through social media platforms such as Facebook or Twitter. By utilizing machine learning algorithms, businesses can gain insight into who their customers are and what kind of content they want to see on social media platforms. This information can then be used to create effective campaigns that engage and convert potential customers. Additionally, since machine learning algorithms are constantly improving and evolving, businesses will always have access to up-to-date insights about their target audience and how best to reach them through social media channels.
Creating AI – Social Media Posts, Headlines, and hashtags
AI can create engaging social media posts, headlines, and hashtags. AI-driven tools, such as natural language processing algorithms and machine learning models, can help identify key content elements likely to resonate with a target audience and create compelling posts and headlines. AI can also predict which hashtags are most likely to generate engagement from followers. AI Tools then suggest relevant ones based on the user’s command. Additionally, AI-driven tools can provide personalized recommendations on the best time to post content. Also, topics that have recently generated the most engagement and buzz among followers can be identified.
Over the last six months, the introduction and widespread use of ChatGPT from OpenAI has taken this ability to new levels of ease. This makes it easier for the actual business owner to create these types of content. While I love ChatGPT, it is free and is often overloaded. I use it during off hours when there are fewer users online. For Business use, I use JasperAI. Jasper is an affordable tool, and it wrote the first three paragraphs of this post. However, it falls short when analyzing new tools like itself or ChatGPT because it was trained before 2020 by consuming about 10% of the reputable content on the Internet at that time. So you might need to update it with your research.
AI – Social Media Tools
These are the three social media tools that I used for this blog entry:
- One shot blog post
- Facebook Ad Primary Text
- Facebook Ad Generator
As I already stated. much of this post was created by Jasper, expanded by me, and checked for Grammar by Grammarly. Grammarly is great at taking AI generated tool output and making it more readable. It is essential to use both Grammarly and a readibility tool.
When ChatGPT finally let me in I asked how ChatGPT can help
ChatGPT can help content creators in several ways:
- Text Generation: It can generate written content, such as articles, descriptions, summaries, and more, freeing up time and resources for content creators.
- Chatbot Creation: ChatGPT can be used to build conversational chatbots, allowing content creators to engage with their audience in a natural and interactive way.
- Text Completion: ChatGPT can complete partially written sentences or paragraphs, helping content creators to express their ideas more clearly and effectively.
- Content Optimization: ChatGPT can analyze text and suggest changes to improve its readability, grammar, tone, and coherence, saving content creators time and effort in the editing process.
By leveraging the advanced natural language processing capabilities of ChatGPT, content creators can focus on creating engaging and high-quality content for their audience, while ChatGPT handles the rest. I include this because it means that ChaptGPT is at least self aware of new content. This makes it my got to tool when it is available for me to log in. Microsoft has invested in OpenAI. Rumor has it that a paid version will be available in the near futute which should make it more available for use.
Facebook Ad Primary Text
I used the Facebook Ad Primary Text tool to make the following Facebook Post. Looking to take your social media game to the next level?

Facebook Ad Generator
I did not like the headline it came back with, so I processed the post through the headline generator and got three options:
- Want to know what works for social media? Let AI help!
- AI-Generated Headlines That Perform Better Than Human-Generated Ones
- “Get your social media posts to stand out with AI-generated content.”
I settled on the first one.
