Content Bot Employs Powerful OpenAI Tech for Marketing Content

May 4, 2021

Great news. Now companies can launch spam fiestas, no humans required, for as little as $29 per month. Content Bot offers tools to generate persuasive marketing copy, powerful slogans, smooth landing pages, improved blog posts, and even something it calls “automated inspiration.” The site promises “human-like text.” If that sounds familiar, it should—the site’s developers must have scored one of the coveted OpenAI beta API slots, as its FAQ reveals:

“We make use of a variety of AI models, with the main model being GPT-3 by OpenAI. GPT-3, or Generative Pre-trained Transformer 3 is an autoregressive language model which uses deep learning to produce human-like text. It’s a game changer for content creators.”

Indeed it is. This is exactly the sort of thing we expected to see when OpenAI began releasing its API to a select few last year. Well, one of the things—the fake news will likely be less publicized. Content Bot’s FAQ also specifies:

“95% of the content generated by the AI is unique and original. We also provide a uniqueness score for longer form content generated so you can have peace of mind to know that the content you have received is unique.”

So one must trust their metric to verify their promise of uniqueness. Interesting. We also learn the platform is relying on Google Translate as a stopgap measure:

“We currently support all languages supported by Google Translate. We understand that although Google Translate may not be the best translation for your needs, we are currently exploring other options such as IBM Watson and OpenAI to provide better, or multiple translations at once.”

Will the price go up if they find a better translation option? The service currently costs $29 per month for the basic version, $79 for the one geared toward agencies—the latter generates three times as many blog posts and supplies a “paraphrase rewriter.” There is a free trial available, and non-profits are invited to write in for a discount. It was no surprise to learn Content Bot workers are fully remote, but the company maintains licenses and operating addresses in Florida and in South Africa. Who will be next to launch a product based on GPT-3?
