In this Content at Scale tutorial, I’ll show you how to maximize the amazing features of this AI writer.
But what is Content at Scale?
Content at Scale is a new AI writing platform that automatically generates high-quality content of 2,600+ words free of plagiarism and undetectable by AI content detection tools. You only need to input one keyword and a brief description, and after a few minutes, the software produces a blog post you can further SEO-optimize inside the platform.
Content at Scale Tutorial: Step-By-Step Guide
In this Content at Scale tutorial, you’ll learn how to:
- Log in to Content at Scale.
- Create new projects.
- Run Content in your Content at Scale account.
- Optimize your AI-generated content.
- Export your content off of the app and onto your website.
In a nutshell, you’ll learn how to use Content at Scale to generate full articles in minutes.
Let’s get started!
Content at Scale Login
To access the Content at Scale platform, you need to access the login page, which you’ll be granted access to as soon as you purchase one of their plans.
Right now, there are five different plans you can subscribe to:
- 4 posts/mo.
- 8 posts/mo.
- 20 posts/mo.
- 50 posts/mo.
- 100 posts/mo.
Whichever you choose, remember to bookmark the Content at Scale login page.
Create a New Project
The first step I’ll cover in this Content at Scale tutorial is creating new projects. Thankfully, your Content at Scale account comes with as many projects as you would like to create.
For instance, if you are on the Scaling plan and get 50 post credits, and have five different websites, you could create five different projects, one for each of those websites.
Let’s look at these project details.
- Project Name – Give your project a name, such as your website’s name.
- Project URL – Type the URL of your website.
- Project Context – This is highly recommended. You should tell the AI who you want to attract and why. For example, if you have a software company, you want to reach readers in your niche. So if you’re an AI writing app, you want to find people interested in AI writing software and content creation and how to help them create content of high quality fast.
- Monthly Posts – This is optional, but as I said, if you have 50 posts per month and want to split those between five sites, you would put ten sites with ten posts per month on each.
- Target Audience – Describe the main readers of your blog.
- Tone of Voice – You can choose various tone voices, such as authoritative, bold, casual, dramatic, excited, feminine, grumpy, happy, informative, joking, masculine, persuasive, professional, sarcastic, and witty.
- Translation Language – Choose from around 100 languages.
- Words Count – The default word count is between 2,000 and 3,000. However, you can also select less than 750 words, 751 to 1,250 words, 1,251 to 2,000 words, and over 3,000 words. Content at Scale doesn’t charge credits per word but per post only. If your AI-generated content has 750 or 3,000 words, only one credit is charged.
Then, just hit “Create Project.”
Adding Keywords & Brief to Content at Scale
Whenever you create a new project, it will take you immediately to the Add Content screen. This is where you’ll put keywords or topics you would like the AI writer to complete.
In this example, I’ll use the keyword “how to start a food blog.” This is a keyword that I’m telling Content at Scale to write about.
Below the keyword, there’s a section called Additional Context, but it is optional. However, this is a great opportunity to tell the AI precisely what kind of angle or anything unique you would like included in this particular article.
For each article you create, you can then:
- Customize it,
- Add it to the Keyword Queue, or
- Hit the “Create Content Now” button.
If you click on “Customize,” you’ll see a left-side panel generating a blog outline for your article that you can edit further. Content at Scale will use that brief to help it generate the content. But it’s not mandatory. It’s just a way of telling the AI how you want your article to be organized.
If you batch out 5, 10, or 20 of these articles, you might want to add them to the keyword queue to ensure all of the details are ready before you actually hit to create the content.
On the other hand, if you’re eager just to get started, ensure all the details are correct and hit the “Create Content Now” button.
Bulk Keyword Upload
You can also upload keywords in bulk via a CSV file. Below the keyword input box, click the link that says “Upload a CSV.”
That opens up the bulk keyword uploader. Afterward, you would simply browse for your CSV file and add the keywords to the content queue.
You cannot create the content directly from here. However, you can add it to the queue and check for it later.
Keep in mind that your CSV file only should have the keyword only. So if you have different columns for difficulty and rankings or even if you have a header overtop, that will also be imported. Make sure your CSV file is just a single column of only the keywords you will upload.
In a recent update, Content at Scale allows adding the context to another column. If you do so, it will import it; if not, you can add the context later.
If you add your topics to the keyword queue, it will take you to the keywords screen.
As you can see in the image below, I’ve added three keywords for the AI writer to write.
Let Content at Scale Create Your AI Blog Post
Once you look at the details and ensure everything is okay, check each of the keywords individually or bulk-select them. Finally, hit “Create Post,” and the Content at Scale AI will start working on them immediately.
After you click the button, you can check on the status of your articles. If you hover over the status bar before it becomes blue, you can actually see what the AI is doing.
As you wait further, you can check on the status of your article to see how close it is to being done.
It took nearly one minute for the AI to finish the draft of 3,906 words!
As you can see, the Title changed from your keyword to an AI-generated title. After you click on it, you’ll go to the Content Editor.
Next, in my Content at Scale tutorial, let’s look at the content editor.
Unlike most Content at Scale alternatives, this tool offers an SEO-optimization tool to help you insert the most relevant keywords into your text, assess word count from the top-ranking pages, and more.
Title, URL, Meta Description, and Featured Image
In the top left of the editor, you’ll see the title, the URL slug (it will be your keyword), and the meta description.
Each can be automatically imported to WordPress if you’re on the Scaling or Agency plan. If not, you can copy and paste these directly into whatever content management system you use, as you’ll see further down in this tutorial. You can also edit them by clicking on the little edit button.
Content at Scale provides royalty-free images you can use as your featured image. It automatically runs a search based on the article’s title, so you can choose the one you like the most. You can also upload your own images.
If you integrate WordPress with the Scaling or Agency plan, it will automatically import the featured image into WordPress.
You can see four metrics—words, paragraphs, headings, and media. Below each number, you see a range. This information comes from the top-ranking articles on search engines for the same keyword. However, from personal experience, don’t be picky about this, as it’s not entirely relevant—it’s only a guide.
Right Panel (Optimization, Brief & Review)
Optimizing your article with relevant NLP (natural language processing) keywords is more important than the metrics.
In this right panel, you’ll see three tabs:
The optimization tab will give you everything you can do to tweak the article to make it as search-friendly and reader-friendly as possible.
Thanks to natural language processing, you can find many related keywords that Google and other search engines “think” are an excellent match to the main keyword. Having all those keywords in your text is highly relevant to how search engines relate your content to your target keyword. This is a feature only AI SEO tools have; content creators have been using them to help them increase their rankings on search results.
Below, you’ll see an on-page optimization checklist. You can further tweak the article by ensuring that:
- Your title has the right length.
- The meta description includes your target keyword.
- You have subheadings and images.
- There are outbound links.
- And more.
The Brief is all the content the AI used to write this article to learn about this topic and to create original unique content.
Sometimes the AI doesn’t exactly write the article that you expected. So for that, Content at Scale allows you to rerun your post a couple of times to ensure it’s the best it could be.
If you read the article and the AI didn’t use the context properly, you can hit “Rerun Post.” It will ask you to give additional context.
I highly recommend you think about the article you want the AI to write and give the best short description of the article you want to see. After you’ve done this, hit “Rerun Post,” and it’ll run through the same process it initially did.
The Review tab allows you to request a plagiarism scan. Content at Scale natively integrates with Copyscape to check for other articles on the Internet to see if there are exact match words and phrasings within your article. By the way, it’s free to use!
If you click “Request Plagiarism Scan,” the article will reload once the scan is complete. This article received 0% Plagiarism after a Copyscape scan.
Editing The AI Content
Each article you run through Content at Scale includes a short intro that gets right into the content. It also contains headings and lists.
At the end of each section, the AI includes key takeaways that summarise the previous heading. And these are editable as well, just like the other content.
After the main bulk of the content, there is a FAQ section and a conclusion.
In the Content at Scale text editor, you can edit anything you want to your liking and include, for example, NLP keywords with the help of the optimization tab.
This full-fledged Content at Scale text editor allows you to:
- Format the text.
- Spell-check it with SKAYT, a grammar checker tool.
- Show blocks as if you were in WordPress.
- Go fullscreen.
- Add emojis, links, and bulleted or numbered lists.
- Change font and size.
- Add images, tables, a table of contents, and a click to tweet.
- Rewrite highlighted content.
- Export to Word DOC and HTML.
- View the page source code.
I would not recommend adding a table of contents in Content at Scale if you’re going to download the file because it won’t translate to your content management system unless you have the WordPress app or integration.
After you read through your article, make sure it targets the subject well and mentions all the things you would like to mention.
In a nutshell, Content at Scale AI has given you a full draft. This is different from any AI writer on the market, where you write a few sentences, and it takes over and writes a few paragraphs or a small blog post. This gives you a full 3,000+ words draft that is ready for your editing or maybe even ready for publishing.
Exporting Your Content
To end this Content at Scale tutorial, I’ll show you how to export your AI-generated content off of Content at Scale.
There are three ways to export your content from Content at Scale.
1. WordPress Plugin
Scaling an Agency plan users can access Content at Scale’s WordPress plugin that goes directly onto their website. As you edit articles, you can schedule and publish them directly from Content at Scale without logging into WordPress.
The WordPress article automatically pulls in your title, the URL slug, the featured image, and even the table of contents if you choose to include it.
2. Source Code
If you’re not on the Scaling or Agency plan, or you use a different content management system other than WordPress, you can use the source code to export your content.
If you click the “Source” button in the text editor, it will automatically take the article and turn it into HTML. You can copy and paste all of it directly into your content management system if it has an HTML source code editor.
3. Word DOC
Another way of exporting content from Content at Scale is to export it to a Word DOC file. This will download the article and all images into a file which you can then upload to your content management system.
If you’re on the Starter plan and want to upload the DOC file to WordPress, you can use the Mammoth .docx converter plugin. It’s an excellent plugin that allows you to upload a Word doc while remaining formatted and spaced perfectly. Make sure to type a description to each image inside the DOC file, as it will be the file’s name once imported to WordPress. If no description is present, the images will have the name wp-image, and you don’t want that.
Content at Scale Tutorial: That’s a Wrap!
As you can see in this Content at Scale tutorial, generating content with this AI tool is pretty straightforward.
To ensure the quality of the web, please go through every article you generate and fact-check all essential statements. AI writing tools are merely assistants and should be regarded as such.
Nonetheless, AI writers can provide many benefits for growing your blog and online business.
