Luckily, there are lots of tasks creators can delegate to AI today. But what AI tools are truly efficient? To find an answer, we've explored countless tools, put them to the test, assessed their features, and put together a comprehensive list of 12 AI tools for creators – complete with their strengths and weaknesses.

There are also some myths about using AI by creators and its impact on YouTube channels. Here we bust some of them, so make sure to take a look.
Treat AI like a young mind: educate, validate, fine-tune
We get it – you might be a bit skeptical about omnipresent AI. Sometimes, it falls short on creativity, glitches out, and gives you stale ideas. Still, it holds the potential to amplify your productivity and growth by leaps and bounds. There are a few habits that are well worth cultivating to harness the full power of AI for creators:
- Give it a double-check: With all the scandals and lawsuits stemming from AI, it's crucial for creators to verify the information it provides and be mindful of the fact that it draws on ideas and materials already created by others.
- Fine-tune it: While AI boasts endless potential, it's more about laying a solid foundation for your creation rather than delivering the final product. Be sure to infuse your personal touch into whatever AI supplies.
- Educate it: Chances are, you've already had a few run-ins with ChatGPT or similar tools. The bottom line is this – Artificial Intelligence has "Intelligence" in its name for a reason. It needs to grasp your tone of voice, your style, and your unique way of presenting information.
Now that we've got all that in our heads, let's jump into exploring some tools.
