Summary of the Podcast

Introductions and Podcast Overview

  • Kevin and Graham discussed the hype around AI and how it’s changing their work.

Copywriting and marketing AI with BNSN

  • Graham detailed BNSN / Benson’s trained models that emulate top copywriters.
  • BNSN helps Graham by improving his copywriting to the A-lister level.
  • Cloning is a particular strength.
  • With cloning, you can take an email from someone like Dan Kennedy…
  • Then you apply a client’s blueprint (based on the client’s identity, offer, and ideal client)—hey presto, you get a brilliant piece of copy that is almost totally unique.
  • After that, if you want to make the copy more “corporate/less hype” you can apply refiners to ape your tone of voice.

Website optimisation with MeclabsAI

  • There are various apps built into MeclabsAI that can do this.
