AI Tools for Influencers (Hidden FIDES Page)

Hey folks! This is a list the AI resources that I use in my science-education content creation process on a regular basis (as well as some that I don’t use but others enjoy).

You can find me on the socials @distilledscience on TikTok, Instagram, Threads, and YouTube. Feel free to reach out on any of them, or shoot me an email. I also send out periodic email blasts on the latest ways I’m using AI to improve my content creation- sign up below!

If you want to book a coaching/training call with me (with a full social media audit and AI analytics), you can check it out here.

I’ve added a special discount for FIDES members: use code FIDES for 75% off the initial audit, or FIDES1 for 58% off the coaching package. (Note: It involves me spending many hours analyzing your accounts in addition to the AI analytics portion)
