In today's fast-paced digital world, the importance of a user-friendly and visually appealing website cannot be understated.
However, building and maintaining a website can be a daunting task, especially for those without a background in coding or web development. These intuitive AI tools simplify the website creation process, making it more accessible for everyone.
Let’s explore the five easiest and most beginner-friendly options that anyone can master with ease.
The 5 Easiest to Learn AI Tools
- HubSpot AI (Campaign Assistant)
- ChatGPT by OpenAI
- ClipDrop Undrop
- Dream by WOMBO
ChatSpot is a chatGPT catered towards small to medium businesses. It is still in beta, so expect some bugs. But if you’re a business looking to enhance your overall strategy, ChatSpot is a wonderful tool.
ChatSpot is catered towards businesses, so the average user might not be able to get as much use of it as some of the other options on this list. However, there are still plenty of things to do for the average user.
User Friendliness: 5/5
The templates are really useful for getting the most out of the tool. Here’s an example of the ‘Ask HubSpot Academy’ feature in action. You’ll notice that ChatSpot gives me an answer for exactly what I asked for, along with a related video. This makes ChatSpot the standard for a user-friendly AI tool.
HubSpot’s Content Assistant comes with the HubSpot CRM and is good for writing blog posts, generating ideas, emails and/or meta descriptions for posts. The UI is pretty simple, which makes it easy to use.
HubSpot's content assistant is a powerful tool that helps streamline the content creation process. It provides suggestions and recommendations for copywriting, ensuring it is engaging and effective in reaching the target audience.
The last paragraph was entirely generated by HubSpot’s content assistant. While it’s only a small demonstration of Content Assistant’s capabilities, a small prompt can generate exactly what you’re looking for. If you overuse content assistant, the output can be repetitive since it works based off of the already existing content on the page.
User Friendliness: 4.5/5
Content Assistant is one of the easiest tools to use on our list but can be difficult to master. Make sure you’re using AI prompts effectively so that you can get the most out of the tool.
Content Assistant is easy to use with versatile writing functionality, making it a great tool for copywriting for your website.
Using ChatGPT for work can be tricky. If you’re using the free version as pictured above, you’ll want to double-check any information because it’s limited to 2021. Even though GPT-4 fixed this by adding the capability of browsing the internet, you’ll still want to ensure the information is accurate.
That being said, ChatGPT is undoubtedly one of the most powerful tools and easy to use. You can use it to write code, produce copy, and also for ideation.
ChatGPT is great but loses a point because of the notable limitation that it ‘may occasionally generate incorrect information.’ It does deserve credit for all the other capabilities but you will need to put in some extra work to make sure that everything works properly.
User Friendliness: 4/5
In terms of intuitiveness, chat-GPT is user-friendly, just like the other tools on our list. But because of the extra work that can go into fixing any mistakes ChatGPT might produce, I give it a 4/5.
ChatGPT scores an 8/10 because it’s easy to use and has plenty of tutorials to help you get the most out of the tool, but also isn’t fully trustworthy just yet for free users.
ClipDrop Undrop is one of my favorite AI tools to help with web design. One of the worst feelings in the world is finding or creating the perfect image for a category or display on your website, but the aspect ratio just doesn’t work. If you resize the image it can come out all weird and no longer fit.
This tool solves that problem by filling out the missing image for the aspect ratio you need using AI. Take, for example, the following picture:
It’s a great image, but if I wanted to use it for a banner it just wouldn’t work. Here’s how it would look like after running it through the tool.
The tool gives you 4 choices to pick the best-looking one for your website. It feels like magic with how well it completes the picture. This is a real game-changer for website design.
This tool does exactly what it’s supposed to do. But there are some bugs on the website, so it might take multiple tries for your image to generate. If you’re a free user you’ll also have to wait for your image to upload if too many people use the tool simultaneously.
User Friendliness: 5/5
This tool is extremely easy to use. All you need to do is drop your image onto the website and wait for it to upload.
ClipDrop Uncrop scores an 8.5/10 for its revolutionary functionality for web design despite some glitches that prevent it from getting a full score.
There are some ethical considerations with AI-generated imagery as well as some pros and cons listed below.
But if you’re in a pinch and need something good for your website, Dream by WOMBO is a good pick. With a simple prompt, you can generate good pictures in a style of your choice. Here’s an image of Barack Obama playing basketball in the style of Dragon Ball Z as an example.
Just for fun, here’s what the same image would look like after being run through the Uncrop AI mentioned earlier.
The image looks beautiful and can be added to any political sports anime website.
Dream by WOMBO can imitate more abstract and cartoonish art styles really well, but if you need a more realistic look to your website you’d be better off hiring a professional artist. The realistic style still has a way to go before reaching usability. Certain prompts can also break the image if you have too many elements.
User Friendliness: 4/5
The prompting system is good for those familiar with AI, but like others on our list, it can take some getting used to. Free users are also only limited to one image, so it can take multiple tries to get something that you’re looking for.
Dream by WOMBO is fun to play around with and can work well for small businesses if you need a serviceable image and can get away with a “fun” image versus a professional one.
