As more and more businesses turn to content marketing as a way to reach new customers, there is an increasing demand for content that is both engaging and original. However, creating new content on a regular basis can be challenging, especially for businesses with limited resources.

One solution for businesses in this situation is to use a blog template that automatically generates content based on artificial intelligence (AI). AI-generated content can be customized to fit the specific needs of your business, and it can be updated on a regular basis so you always have fresh content.

How-to type: the most popular type of blog

People have been blogging for over a decade, and there are many different types of blogs. The most popular type of blog is the how-to blog. In this article, you will learn how to type a how-to blog. The first step is to come up with a topic. Then, you need to come up with a headline for your post. Next, you need to write an introduction paragraph that introduces your topic. After that, you need to write the body of your post. Finally, you need to write a conclusion paragraph.

We'll introduce the how-to blog template for duplicate use for different topics. We can simply replace the keywords (marked as "term" on the template) with instant AI content generation.

If you are not familiar with using AI to write long-form articles, you can click here to view how I use WordHero AI Editor to write 2,000+ words within an hour or so. It is a common guide for using AI writing assistants for long-form content.

Title/headline: How To do xx

For the how-to form of blogs, the title or headline usually starts with the word "how-to". Such as how to write a blog, how to use AI writing tools, how to do SEO for the website, etc.

What I usually do for this part is, I will pick a high search volume but low SEO difficulty keywords after the "how-to".

For example, when I input "solar power generator" on Ubersuggest for keyword ideas, I got a long list of keywords. And I find out that "solar power generator for home" is with 4,400 searches/month on average but with only 37 SEO difficulty score. This would be a nice pick for me to do a blog like "how to install a solar power generator for home". We will take this title to show you how to do it in Wordhero AI content creation.

No doubt, you are free to do so on any topics of your niches when you are using AI to write.

For the keyword research tools, I am using the lifetime deal of Ubersuggest. The alternative can be Ahrefs, SEMRush, Long Tail Pro, etc. As long as it shows us the search volume and SEO difficulty.

If you are looking for a free keyword research tool, you can access h-supertools. They offer a lot of free SEO tools there.

Outlines of how-to type blog

Once the title/headline is settled down, we are going to use the AI to generate outlines for us. In Wordhero AI, it's very simple, just click on the "blog outline" tool on top. And the AI will usually automatically generate outlines according to your title.

As the "how-to" blog is so typical, the AI is usually pre-trained to create 4 major parts of outlines:

1. What is [Term]?

Here [term] stands for your targeted keywords. But for better content generation, please apply the below "AI trigger words" :

  • definition

  • introduction

  • description

  • analogy

  • example

Let's continue to take the blog "how to install a solar power generator for home" as an example:

For this part, the outline would be: what is a solar power generator for home applications?

How to generate content for this outline? At least 3 usual ways to accomplish this task:

  1. simply highlight the outline and click the rocket icon of the blog paragraphs tool.

  2. search and apply the blog paragraphs tool, copy and paste the outline sentence, and add some targeted keywords.

  3. use the AI trigger keywords for specific content generation.

For method 1, we try twice and get results like:

  • A solar power generator for home applications is a device that converts sunlight into electrical energy. This energy can be used to power appliances and lighting in your home. Solar generators come in a variety of sizes, and some can be mounted on your roof or in your backyard. They are a great way to reduce your reliance on the grid, and many homeowners find that they pay for themselves in just a few years.

  • Solar power generators for home applications are small, quiet, and efficient devices that use solar panels to convert sunlight into electrical energy. These generators can be used to provide power for small appliances and devices in your home or to charge batteries for backup power during a power outage. Solar generators are a renewable energy source and can be used to reduce your dependence on traditional utility-provided electricity.

For method 2, we simply repeat the keyword "solar power generator for home", then I got a copy as:

  • A solar power generator for home applications is a device that converts sunlight into electrical energy. These generators are typically used to provide power to a home or business during an emergency or power outage. Solar generators can also be used to supplement traditional grid-tied systems, helping to reduce energy costs.

    There are a number of different types of solar generators available on the market. The most common type is the portable solar generator, which is small enough to be carried around in a backpack. These generators typically have a battery that stores energy generated from the sun, allowing you to use it when you need it most.

    Another popular type of solar generator is the off-grid solar system. This system is designed for homes that are not connected to the traditional electrical grid. Off-grid systems include a solar panel array, a battery bank, and sometimes a wind turbine or diesel generator.

For method 3, we try "definition" to trigger some keywords. So we type "solar power generator for home definition" and click the rocket icon of the blog paragraphs tool. We got AI content copies:

  • A solar power generator for home is a device that converts sunlight into electrical energy. This energy can be used to power appliances, lights, and other devices in your home. Solar generators are a great way to reduce your reliance on traditional forms of electricity, and they can also help you save money on your energy bills. There are a number of different solar generators on the market, so it is important to do your research before you make a purchase.

  • If you want to install a solar power generator for your home, there are a few things you'll need to do. First, you'll need to find the right generator for your needs. You can either buy a new solar power generator, or you can install a pre-existing one. Once you've found the right generator, it's time to install it. There are a few different ways to install a solar power generator, and each one will require different tools and knowledge. If you're ready to start generating energy at home, follow these simple steps and get started!

And we try "introduction" in the same way to "trigger" the AI writing, we are getting two copies:

  • As the cost of traditional energy sources continues to rise, more and more people are looking for ways to reduce their monthly expenses. One option that is becoming increasingly popular is solar power. Solar power is a renewable resource, which means that it can be used over and over again. It also doesn't produce any emissions, which makes it a good choice for people who are concerned about the environment.

    One of the biggest benefits of solar power is that it can be used to generate electricity for your home. In fact, there are now many solar-powered generators on the market that can be used to provide power for your entire home. These generators are compact and easy to use, and they can be installed in just a few hours.

    If you're interested in using solar power to generate electricity for your home, there are a few things you need to know.

  • Are you tired of paying high energy bills? Do you want to start using solar energy, but don't know how to get started? A solar power generator for home can be a great way to start using solar energy. Solar generators are small, portable units that can be used to generate power for your home. They are a great way to get started using solar energy, and they can help you save money on your energy bills.

The above-mentioned methods are generating different AI copies. And you can also see the "AI content trigger words" are making the AI generate the content in specific or stylish ways. But please don't stop at what I listed. There should be a long list for us to enjoy.

2. Why does [Term] matter?

In this part, all the methods are similar to part 1. But the "AI trigger words" could be but are not limited to:

  • fact
