Writing original content for the Media, 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 PR Writing is tough. The research, the writing, the editing, and of course, monitoring your content and measuring the results.
There's also the fact that field of Public Relations is ultimately about building strategic and mutually positive relationships with various stakeholders.

HelloScribe uses a corpus of millions of examples of world-class journalistic writing to train its algorithms. When given a brief description of any story or idea, our AI quickly predicts the best sequence of words that match your query. It is meant to be used by those with professional writing experience, but little time to create high quality content on a consistent basis.
HelloScribe AI only produces original content. Any reference made to names, authors, places, statistics , dates, or events are purely a function of the predictive nature of the software. It is NOT the result of having "copied" anything verbatim from any other document that exists. This is important to remember as you use the platform. Feel free to run any generated item through your preferred plagiarism checker. In addition, you have UNLIMITED access to generate as many article drafts as you wish. If for any reason you are not satisfied or comfortable with an output, simply generate another.
An unintended consequence of our focus on original content is that our platform may sometimes produce "hallucinated" outputs. This is why we strongly encourage you to use our built-in Research Companion. You have access to the latest verified news stories, a comprehensive fact-check search, and over 100 million peer-reviewed academic studies.
We continue to work on improving safety and accuracy, and as research in the field advances, so will our platform:

HelloScribe is easy to use, and only takes a few minutes to set up. Just follow the instructions below:
Step 1. Sign up here. You will be asked to create an account. You will have seven days to evaluate our software for Free.
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 as necessary to verify any names, dates, events, and statistics, before you save, copy, or export any text.
The site currently has 5 categories:
Headlines are the heartbeat of the PR Industry. With HelloScribe you can generate headlines in the writing styles of over 5,000 publications. Simply enter the text of your article, choose a publication, and generate endless headline variations on any subject.
“Articles” are a broad category of outputs. At present, there are 6 article types within the app - Press Release, Press Statement, Op-Ed, 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, click on "Article" from the menu, and complete the form seen below:
The input form has six fields. You can mix and match any of these options to steer your output. Date, Article Type, Title, Publication Domain, 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) Lead : You may add a first sentence or brief summary to give the AI some context for your story (who, what, when where)
Pro-Tip - Limit your Lead sentence to fewer than 20 words.
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. It gives you confidence in knowing that you are writing in a style that your target readers will find appealing. This makes it easy for any receiving publication to adapt elements of your copy for their story.
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 use 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 or tine of voice is paramount. However, we encourage you to add your own flair.
Now let's take a look at the individual presets:
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 30-45 seconds. Here is an example:
There is a subtle difference between a press release and a press statement, although organizations often use the two terms interchangeably. A press release is generally used for new information such as an announcement or update. A press statement is used for a reactionary statement. It's short and to the point. It can be a brief explanation, a pithy quote, or a response to the news about you or your company.
Here’s how to draft a Press Statement with HelloSribe:
Here’s an example:

A thought leadership article is a type of blog post that is written to endorse a particular viewpoint or promote a product, service, or organization.

While the content should be informative, thought leadership articles should also be written with an eye towards persuading readers to share the content. Drafting your next thought leadership article is easy with HelloScribe.
Here’s an example:
