According to a study by the University of Hertfordshire, editing and proofreading can take as much as 30% of the total time spent on writing tasks. By incorporating Generative AI into your workflow, you can save a considerable amount of time and ensure that your content is polished and error-free.

Maintaining a strong social media presence is crucial for individuals and businesses alike. However, crafting engaging content for various platforms can be both challenging and time-consuming. Generative AI can aid in generating creative and relevant content tailored to your target audience, saving you time while maintaining a consistent presence online. 

A report by Sysomos found that social media managers spend an average of 3.5 hours per day on content creation and curation. But even if you’re not a social media guru, Generative AI helps you create great content that keeps your social media channels fresh and engaging while saving you time.
