You will need to create an account to use this service. There is a free version that allows you to generate 5000 characters per month. Depending on how you use the service, that may be enough for you. The paid tiers offer more characters per month, the ability to create custom use cases, and more support.
Upon logging in, you are presented with a writing window. Options on the left allow you to select the language, tone, and use case (purpose of the writing). The center is empty for a new account, but will eventually contain a list of your creations. You can use the menu on the upper left to mark favorites, create a new folder, or create a new document. For this example, I have chosen to write an informative email in English.
After choosing your option, enter the key points of your email. This is what I entered:
- We have a new service.
- Read the Times Union online
- Must be a resident cardholder.
I left the settings at 2 variants (creates two options) and optimal creativity level.
This was the result:
It came up with two decent options, aside from the fact that it picked up a link for a coupon that has nothing to do with this and put it in the first option. The second variant was definitely more like the tone we use in our library emails. All of the text in this window, including the suggested subject, are editable and can be formatted.
Fine Tuning the Result
When I click on a phrase, additional editing options pop up. Select a large chunk of text and click “more” to access the plagiarism checker.
After some manual edits, I dropped in an image. If you do this, be sure to use an image of high quality, because it will be stretched to fit the page width. I couldn’t find a way to format it to stay in its original size or form a column in the email. Images may be more easily handled by adding them later in your email editor. Here is the finished product:
By default, all creations are saved and listed on your account home page. To reveal additional options for the project, click the three-dot menu icon in the upper right of the page.
Returning to the account home page, we see my document and a folder created for it. To move a file into a folder, click the three-dot menu for the document and select move. Select the folder from the popup and click “move here.”
If you decide you want to go back to the original variants that were created, click on history in the upper left of the screen and select an item.
The original information is all there, along with the number of credits used and the date and time of creation. If you’re really pleased with the outcome, click the orange button to “Ryte more like this.” If you are unhappy with the outcome, click “report poor output quality.”
If you need help, click the question mark icon in the upper right of the screen. Links to tutorials, resources, community, chat, and email are available.
Sometimes writing even the simplest copy can take more time than you have. Rytr can help ease the burden and free up your time for other things.
