I refer to the «Cambrian explosion of AI-powered online tools» as the rapid proliferation of large language models like GPT and the explosive growth of AI services based on their advances. OpenAI’s ChatGPT led the way toward the end of 2022, and the market for such tools exploded in 2023.

Now that prompts are the new way of working, there’s databases emerging that support your prompt engineering, say
Eye for AI,
More such comma-separated lists below are borrowed from AI Daddy. He compiled a list with 600+ AI tools. Go to his website to ask for the full list.
Below is my own list of tools that you can use right now to begin leveraging the power of AI to grow your business.
AI tools to try out (my personal preferences)
These lists are by no means comprehensive and I won’t be able to keep up with the development in the field. But it may give you a good starting point.
A prompt is the text that the appropriate AI tool should use to generate the desired result. Many of these tools work better the more specific you are.
Generate images based on text prompts
Image generator for rather realistic looks.
Text to image based on Stable Diffusion. In my tests, the results were less impressive than with Midjourney.
Text to background image of product photos.
Text to vector images. You «only» get 3 variations per prompt, hence the limited match with my needs. Two vector images come for free.
Text prompt to image generator for artistic looking graphics. Signup via Discord. This post’s header image was «imagined» by Midjourney. The best image generator for my needs. Very commendable.
Text to image or video.
Text to photo or logo. One photo is for free. This is too little to test, compared to the free amount you get on say Midjourney.

Prompt to copywriting: Create new or edit existing copy
Use with caution: Before using copy-generating AI tools and publishing the content to the web, be aware that Google’s webmaster guidelines state that AI-generated content is considered spam if it is written for better search engine rankings (SEO) instead of user benefits.
In his study, Matthew Woodward compares the «human» writing performance of AI copywriters and whether or not their output can be recognized as having been generated by AI. He also discloses which content detection tools he used.
ChatGPT and Rytr, among others, performed worst.
Frase and Jasper passed most of the AI detection tests.

The more context you give the chatbot for the question, the better the results.
BUT – ChatGPT copy is easily detected as generated by AI and doesn’t pass plagiarism tests. Use it for ideation, concepts, coding, debugging. Try other tools for copy creation.
