All the 70+ tools offered by MarketingCopy are accessible directly from our document editor as well. You can edit and format your blogs and articles end to end using our powerful document editor.
Our long form writing assistant allows users to generate content by directly giving instructions to our AI. Our AI will take those instructions along with other parameters like number of characters and creativity to write content for you. Just think of it as giving instructions to a content writer and our AI will serve you as your very own writing assistant.
1.1 Write for me
The 'write for me' section is used for giving direct instructions and prompts to our AI. Here you can simply add the title of what you want the AI to write. The instructions will go in the content brief section. Below the content brief section you can see the option to control the number of characters and the creativity for the output.
If you want the AI to write highly creative content then you can increase this and if you want the AI to write less creative content then you can reduce this parameter. The lower the creativity the more factual the content. If you need the AI to be creative then you can choose 4 or 5 and and if you want it to be less creative then you can lower this parameter.
You can generate up to 300 characters for each direct instruction.
Let's say we want the AI to generate a blog post outline for our blog titled '8 useful TikTok marketing tactics'. In this case we will write the blog title in the title field and we can write the following instruction in the content brief section
Write an outline for a blog titled '8 useful TikTok marketing tactics'. This should contain 8 useful tips for running successful marketing campaigns on TikTok.
After this we can change the number of characters and creativity and finally click 'Write for me ' and our AI will create an outline for our blog post.
1.2. Write about this
Another long form writing assistant feature offered by MarketingCopy is 'write about this'. With this feature you can select some incomplete paragraph and text and essentially tell the AI to continue writing from that point by using the selected text as background context. The AI will use the selected text as context and will continue writing from that point onward.
This feature allows users to finish incomplete content, expand on previously written content and get more content written by AI.
In order to use this feature, you can select the text which you want the AI to use as background context for writing new content. After the text is selected, click the AI shortcuts dropdown button from our inline toolbar and click write about this. Our AI will use the selected text as context and will continue writing from that point onwards.

Paraphrase is another long form writing feature that MarketingCopy offers. With this feature you can rewrite and rephrase a piece of text. This feature is accessible from the AI shortcuts menu from our inline editor. You can select the text and then select 'Paraphrase' from the shortcuts menu.

1.4 AI Tools
All of MarketingCopy AI's 70+ tools are accessible directly in the document editor. Users can use these tools to generate content for articles and blogs and can use the text editor for editing, formatting and preparing content for publishing.
Once the AI has generated content using the “write for me” tab, tools and features at the bottom of the window can be used to expand and develop the content. Select the generated content, click on AI writer in the bottom tab and click “write for me” to prompt the AI to generate more content on the topic.
To access more AI tools, click the AI Tool option in the bottom tab. A scroll through tab will open up to give you access to all the AI tools available.
The bottom tab also contains the main editor toolbar where you can find tools to format your text . Let’s have a look at each one of them.
In the bottom left corner, we have a purple icon for tips and resources which will help you understand our AI tools better. It explains the use of some essential tools and also shares shortcuts to prompt these tools.
Once you choose this option, the text gets selected and a pop-up window containing shortcuts for various writing assistant features appears. The two arrows are for undo and redo commands, respectively. After that, we have the formatting tools (Bold, italics, block quote, link, bullets, indentation etc.)
On the right corner of the tool bar you will see a dotted line. Clicking on that will take you to the language setting tool that will enable you to update the input and output languages for your blog post and create long-form content in a range of different languages.
- Let's start writing a blog post
In an empty document editor video, you can start writing your blog post.
Start by writing the title for your blog post. There are two ways of doing that, you can either write down the title you have in mind in the main document editor as we have done.
Or you can use the AI tools to generate a title for your blog post. When the pop-up appears, search for “blog.” It will show you a list of different tools ranging from “blog title” “blog ideas” “blog intros” “blog outline” and so on. To create a blog title, choose the respective tool and after selecting the input and output languages, add some information about what your blog post is so that the AI can come up with a variety of titles for your blog. The more precise your instructions are, the better the outcome will be.
Click on the “Create AI content” button and it will show you the various titles generated by the tool.
If you already have a blog title as we did, you can skip these steps altogether and move to the next part which is creating an introduction paragraph. Keep in mind that it is important to specify the title at the beginning of your blog post because AI will perform different operations based on the title you have provided.
- Generating a blog Introduction paragraph
Before diving into the content of the blog post, you need to set the tone, length, and creativity of the blog post you have in mind. You can choose the tone of the content as you like, change the total number of output characters and adjust the creativity in the write for me toolbar on the right.
If you require the AI to create factual content and stick to the context, the creativity should be kept low whereas if you want the AI to generate creative content the creativity should be high.
The first thing you want for your blog post is an intro paragraph; this will be used to give instructions to the AI for the remaining portion of the blog post. Once again there are two ways of doing this, one is the longer one that we discussed in the blog title section, using the AI tools. And the second way is by using the AI shortcut.
To use the AI shortcut to create your intro paragraph, give it direct instructions by typing in the main document editor anything like “write an intro paragraph for this blog post.” Select the written instruction and from the document editor choose the “instruct AI” option.
Once you click on that option, it will start generating the introduction paragraph for your blog post. The good thing about MarketingCopy AI is that it keeps saving the document with each command so you don’t have to worry about manually saving it every time you make a change.
Once you are done with the introduction of the blog post, it is time to create the blog outline.
- Generating a blog outline
For the outline part, you can use the content brief field to write a brief for your blog post. Doing this will help AI understand what type of content to generate for the blog post. In this field, you can tell the AI what sort of content you are intending to create, whether it is an article, blog, ebook, or something else. You can look at the content brief of our blog post to get a general idea.
After that, you can give instructions to the AI as you did for the intro paragraph and let the AI generate a good outline for your blog post.
Here is how you do it; type “write an outline for this blog post” select it and from the document editor select “Instruct AI”.
You can use this outline as the headings or subtopics for your blog post.
- Generating content for headings
Next, we need to create content for each heading of the blog post. To get started, you can use the shortcut to write a paragraph. For this, you have to select each heading and use the shortcut “paragraph for heading” from the document editor to generate content for that heading.
Doing this will add one paragraph for each heading.
If you want to generate more content for the heading, you can expand the content. For that select, the already generated paragraph, and from the document editor tool click on the “Expand content” option. The AI will start generating more content for that heading to expand your paragraph.
Keep repeating the same process until you have content for all of your headings. If you want to create a longer section for a heading you can choose the “blog section for heading” option.
This option creates much more extensive content rather than generating one paragraph for each heading. You can also use the content brief for headings to allow the AI to generate more specific content for each heading.
- Generating the conclusion paragraph
Once you have the content for all the headings, it is time to conclude your blog post. Give the AI instruction to write a conclusion paragraph by writing it down, selecting the text, and then selecting the “instruct AI” option from the document editor.
After generating your conclusion paragraph, you can format your blog using the formatting toolbar at the bottom of the browser. After that you are done!
You have created your first blog post with Marketcopy AI in less than 10 minutes!
