Best Free AI Platforms and Tools for Business
I wanted to gather the finest totally free tools I’ve found because I’ve seen a lot of lists of the best AI tools that concentrate on paid/subscription tools that are more difficult to experiment with without paying. While some of these still offer paid or premium plans, all of them can be utilized without any time restrictions and without the need for a credit card.
Check out these, and if you’re like me and want to experiment with applying AI to better your business, let me know what you think. Please comment below with any additional AI tools or materials I may be missing so I may add them to the list.
Creating a domain name for a business using NamingMagic
Although most of you are already aware of AI name generators and they are fairly stale, NamingMagic stands out as a choice that automatically generates names with domain names you can really register. Furthermore, it is totally free.
Another well-established business name generator is NameLix. Although it can be a little more difficult to identify names for which non-dotcom domains are accessible, Namelix offers the finest user interface and makes it simple to select various name styles.
Managing projects while incorporating AI into your workflows:
3) Taskade: I use Taskade to manage all of my tasks, including to-do lists, outreach emails, meeting notes, and content development. It’s an all-in-one content platform, similar to Notion, that enables you to write, collaborate, and keep track of anything you need to do. Its ChatGPT-powered AI capabilities, in my opinion, is far superior to Notion’s.
Taskade is an excellent option to use GPT4 without paying for ChatGPT’s pro subscription, which is necessary to use 4 on their website, as it also includes GPT4 in the free plan. Even though they claim the free plan has a cap of 1000 monthly AI generation cycles, I haven’t reached it despite utilizing it for all of my content production and ChatGPT prompts. Additionally, Taskade offers hundreds of free templates that make it simple to set up workplaces that incorporate AI. It’s a wonderful approach to learn what’s possible when incorporating AI into your workflows and how others are doing it, even if you don’t wind up utilizing a specific template.
AI website creators:
To be really honest, I still use WooCommerce for the majority of my websites since I know it well enough to be able to use templates and create things quickly that way. However, if you frequently run into problems when creating websites, the following AI-powered site generators might be worth a shot:
4) Jimdo: I’ve heard that Jimdo has a free plan, but you have to use one of their subdomains to access it. Both a basic website and an online store builder are available on Jimdo.
5) 10Web: A different choice that specializes on WordPress websites powered by AI and offers a free trial that you can try.
Testing with A/B using AI
In A/B testing, I believe AI will really excel in web development. For instance, having your website automatically identify tests you can conduct and make changes based on the results. Although I haven’t yet discovered a cheap tool that does it well, if any of you have, please let me know so I can add them to the list.
In order to create images and illustrations for your non-product content:
6) Dall-E 2: Like ChatGPT, Dall-E was developed by OpenAI and offers a free trial so you may try it out before you buy. In essence, Dall-E allows you to produce AI-generated graphics and illustrations in any style you like.
I particularly like Dall-E for making images for article headers that draw readers in and for overall producing blog content that sticks out better to readers (and search engines). On the OpenAI website (https://openai.com/research/dall-e), samples of illustrations and the prompts that were used to make them are displayed. Even if it’s not my area, this may be a game-changer for people who write illustrated children’s books or make games that demand a lot of illustrations.
Text-to-speech and voiceover content creation:
7) Murf is an AI-powered text-to-speech platform that offers a large selection of accents, tones, and voices. It also supports 15 different languages, making it ideal if you’re trying to reach markets that don’t understand English.
Murf is a great substitute if, like me, you lack a golden voice and need to record spoken audio for product videos, advertisements, and other purposes.
Resolving technical queries with research and citations:
8) Phind: I came across this on YC HackerNews. Phind advertises itself as a search engine that provides the solution. similar to a hybrid of Google and ChatGPT. I use it primarily to respond to inquiries about development.
Where it really excels in comparison to ChatGPT vanilla is in outlining the sources it uses to generate responses, allowing you to further investigate things on your own, as opposed to ChatGPT where it can be more difficult to determine when it is “hallucinating”. This also means that it receives sources that are current, as opposed to ChatGPT’s pre-trained model, which is only able to use data up to September 2021.
Generators of written content and copy include:
9) Unbounce, whose AI copywriting tool creates website content including headings and descriptions. Additionally, it will produce complementary email marketing campaigns and other offsite text to correspond with what is on your site.
Unbounce can save you a ton of time if you’re wanting to quickly launch a new site to test a new concept or product, even though it’s unlikely it will do everything you need.
10) CopyAI: CopyAI offers writing capabilities comparable to those of ChatGPT, but it specializes in business writing applications such as emails, marketing copy, and blog articles. Because of this, it includes functionality that ChatGPT lacks, such as the ability to scrape leads’ websites and customise sales mailings.
Even though its free plan has a cap of 2000 words each month, it’s still worthwhile to test out if you need this kind of functionality.
I tested both and discovered that, for some niche use cases, like creating email copy, they were superior to ChatGPT. YMMV, but if ChatGPT hasn’t yielded the outcomes you’re looking for, it might be worth a shot.
Business Ideas, Research, and Feedback:
Although there are some tools designed specifically for this, I haven’t yet seen one that performs better than utilizing ChatGPT/Phind/Taskade and inputting your ideas to stimulate it. The next step is to solicit feedback, either broadly or on particular elements of your concept. One technique I’ve found to be especially helpful when I’m considering a new product or website idea is to create a mind map of the information I need to research for the idea using Taskade’s prompt mind-map feature, and then use Phind to look up specific questions where I need recent URL sources (like looking up competitors in a market). The team mind map template I used can be found at https://www.taskade.com/templates/featured/team-mindmap.
Any of you who have used one that is worthwhile should let me know so I may include it. If any of you would like to add to an ongoing list of AI tools that are fully free to use, I’m also considering converting this into a Google Sheet or GitHub repository.
TL;DR: Use NameLix or NamingMagic to locate company names that are also domain names that you may register.
For incorporating ChatGPT/AI into your workflows, projects, and task management, use Taskade.
Murf for AI-powered voiceovers and text-to-speech.
Dall-E for artificial intelligence-generated graphics.
Phind for subject research and receiving sourced, AI-powered responses.
For creating copy, marketing, and sales-specific content, use CopyAI or Rytr.
