Let's get started:
HelloScribe is an artificial intelligence writing assistant for anyone who wants to write great public relations content. If you are a startup, a charity, a small business, or a large enterprise, here you will find the tools you need to kickstart those efforts, and save time. Similarly, if you are an Independent PR Practitioner, or Agency Owner, our software is quite helpful.
Writing original content for the Press, or Online, is crucial to your marketing plan. PR Content is a key element for brand awareness, and is used to boost traffic, drive sales, and more importantly, to create and sustain a positive public image. But Public Relations Writing is tough. The research, the writing, the editing, and then, of course, the monitoring of your content to measure the results.
There's also the fact that Public Relations is about building strategic relationships with various stakeholders. Writing is only a part of what makes the job challenging. Our goal is not to replace the diverse roles within PR, but to make the writing elements that make it up, more efficient. With HelloScribe, you will draft and edit winning PR content in minutes- not hours.
HelloScribe uses a corpus of millions of examples of world-class journalistic writing to train its algorithms. The software generates articles that adapts to a user’s preferred writing style. While HelloScribe can be used by anyone, it is meant to be used by those with writing experience, but who have little time to create high quality content on a consistent basis.
HelloScribe produces original, editing ready, plagiarism-free drafts and a built-in research companion allows the writer to research relevant facts, and add citations to articles generated.
HelloScribe is easy to use, and only takes a few minutes to set up. Just follow the instructions below:
Step 1. Visit HelloScribe.ai. You will be asked to create a free trial account. Before being asked to upgrade, you will have seven days to try out our software.
Step 2. Next, you will be presented with a list of menu options from which to choose.
Step 3. Once you choose what type of content you want to produce, follow the instructions inside the app to generate content. Since we do not guarantee output accuracy, we strongly recommend that you use our built-in research companion to verify any names, dates, events, and statistics, before you save, copy, or export any text.
The site currently functions under three categories:
HelloScribe uses large language models, which are a relatively new invention. As such, our platform may sometimes produce "hallucinated" outputs. That's why we strongly encourage you to use our built-in Research Companion. You have access to the latest verified news stories, a comprehensive fact search engine, and over 100 million peer-reviewed academic studies.
Our goal is to make our platform as safe and easy to use as possible, and we will continue to work on improving safety and accuracy.
We believe that Artificial Intelligence is no substitute for Human Creativity and Intuition. HelloScribe gives you complete creative control over what you decide to publish. We provide a set of tools that enhance the thinking and writing process, allowing you to focus on the most important task: creating something you are proud of. The result is a system that is both easy to use and incredibly powerful. And we hope you find it a useful companion to your craft.
With that in mind, let's dive in:
To use the Headline Feature, enter the text of the article for which you would like to generate headlines. The Article can be of any length. Our algorithm understands the content of your article, and generates headlines based both on the content of the article and on the writing style of any publication that you choose.
Here’s how it works:
Here's an example:
“Articles” are a broad category of output types. At present, there are 5 article types within the app - Press Releases, Op-Eds, Features, Essays, and Thought Leadership. Our goal is to help you find original angles for your stories. The presets are improved often and in the future we plan to add more. To get started, use the form below:
The input form has six fields. You can mix and match any of these options to steer your output. Article Type and Title are mandatory:
1) Date - Choose a date for your article
2) Article Type: Select the type of article you wish to draft.
3) Headline/Description: Describe exactly what you want to write. More precise detail equals better output.
4) Keyword/Phrase: Add keywords, names, events, dates that you want your copy to include
Pro-Tip - While there is no limit, five keywords, or phrases are your optimal number; and you should keep them brief.
5) Publication: This option helps you choose a target publication for your copy. This is what allows you to generate copy in the writing style of any publication. This makes it easy for the receiving journalist to adapt elements of your copy for their story. It also gives you confidence in knowing that you are writing in a style that your target readers will find appealing.
6) Author Writing Style: If you are a published writer, and have several pieces online with your own byline this is quite helpful. The AI will generate the copy in your writing style. Additionally, if you're looking to explore other voices for your writing, this option will yield strikingly similar results to your favorite writer.
Note: It is not illegal to copy an author's style of writing - as you'll see here. In fact this can be especially helpful in Public Relations where coming up with an interesting angle is paramount. However, we encourage you to add your own flair.
Now let's take a look at the individual presets:
Press Release -
The purpose of a Press Release is to provide information, create an official statement, or make an announcement to the news media. Press Releases are also considered primary sources, as they provide original information. Drafting a Press Release with HelloScribe is easier than ever.
Each generation takes about 30 seconds. Here is an example:
An Op-Ed is a piece of writing published by a newspaper or magazine that expresses an opinion by an author usually not connected with the publication's editorial board. HelloScribe allows you to create a first draft of an Op-Ed that you can pitch to your client, craft into a Blog Post, or into a Media Pitch to your target publication.
Here’s an example:
A Feature Story is one whose value won't fade over time. This is an excellent way to get your brand, client or employer exposure in the media even if there is no breaking news. With HelloScribe you can easily draft up ideas for Feature Stories:
Here’s an example:
Guest Essay -
A Guest Essay is a high quality article written by a guest author for the purpose of enlightening or educating the reader on a particular subject. The most common place to find Guest Essays is on blogs and news websites. The benefits of Guest Essays are that they are written by experts in the field who can give the reader information from an unbiased source. A great Guest Essay is written in a journalistic style with the author's opinion clearly stated, but is also factual. PR Practitioners help their clients gain exposure through Guest Essays by pitching them to various websites.
With HelloScribe you can easily draft up ideas for Guest Essays:
Here's an example:
Summaries are a broad and expanding category of AI summarization tools. Currently, we provide an easy summarization tool that allows you to enter the full text of an article, and it automatically extracts the best sentences and paragraphs, and then arranges them to make a summary.
In the future, our summarization tools will allow you to extract talking points from scripts, generate meeting notes from bullet points, as well as develop questions and answers from a body of text.
A core feature of HelloScribe is the Research Companion. Anyone writing PR must have the facts at hand. The built-in Research Companion provides the Top Verified News Stories related to your topic. Additionally, you get access to over 100 million peer-reviewed academic studies in all sciences, including Social Science. A web fact search database with over 100 sources is also available to you.
Here's how it works:
- Search - HelloScribe generates a new Research Prompt with every new document.
- Direct Search - Key in your research terms directly into the search bar for results.
- Cite - Cite sources directly from the Research Tool into your document.
- Save - Copy and “Save to Notes”, and return to it later.
With HelloScribe there are no limits to the number of drafts you can generate. With the click of a button you can generate unlimited drafts. You can also create multiple drafts and compare them side by side.
Once you generate a first draft you're happy with, you can edit right within our app. You can also export or copy the text to your usual text editor.
It's easy to integrate HelloScribe into your approvals workflow. Our Real-Time Collaboration feature allows you to add your clients and colleagues to your document and get everyone on the same page in real time.
Save your draft and finish it later. HelloScribe makes it easy to generate, save, and retrieve your drafts with built-in search.
SAVE TO NOTES:
With our "Add to Notes" feature you can select any part of generated text, save, and add back to your document later.
COPY TO CLIPBOARD:
Built-on copy to clipboard makes it easy to copy and paste any portion of text throughout your document.
