Bulk Rewrite: automatically create variants from a CSV file
Bulk Rewrite Workflow
With the Bulk Rewrite workflow, you can quickly generate thousands of high quality and unique pieces of content in minutes! Perfect for creating product variants, testing ad copy, or even creating metadata in bulk - instantly.
All you need to do is upload a CSV file, give a few instructions and export your variants! 🚀
In this article, we'll first talk about the structure of your CSV file and then go through the different steps of the workflow.
How to structure my CSV file ?
We've created an example just for you 👉 view it here
The required structure is fairly simple:
it should contain a single column
each row is a piece of content that will be used to create variants
.. and that's about it! 🙌
It does not matter if the file contains a header row or not, neither the name of the Column.
Visually it should look like this:
|My header (optional)|
|First piece of content|
|Second piece of content|
|and so on ...|
Step 1: Import your CSV
Before that, you should select the number of variants to be generated. If you select 2, two columns will be automatically appended to your CSV file on the last step.
Then click on the button "**Upload my CSV file**".
The process is split in 4 steps:
Step 1 - we're just showing you the required column in your CSV file, you can skip it.
Step 2 - Select or drop your CSV file
Once you have uploaded your file, you will see a preview of your file.
If you have a header (the first row corresponds to the name of the column), make sure to use the switch at the top of the window.
In this example there is a header ("Content") so we need to use the switch:
If parts of your content such as accents are not well imported (appear as random characters) then you need to update the encoding from ASCII to UTF-8.
Step 3 - Select the column containing your original content
This is the column that includes your content to be used for creating variants.
Step 4 - Your content is ready to go!
Click on the "close" button and you'll be redirected to the AI brief.
Step 2: Give some instructions
The instructions field is optional but helps to guide the AI on how to rewrite your content.
How to write my instructions ?
Explain your intentions for this content (what is going to be used for, who is it meant for, what should it contain).
It's not necessary to ask the AI to rewrite your content: We have trained an AI model to create a variants from an existing piece of content.
Some very effective examples:
Mention a goal (e.g. "The content should make people want to buy my product")
Mention an audience type (e.g. "This content targets teenagers and young adults")
Include a list of words (e.g. "The content should include the following words: baguette, croissant")
Step 3: Export your variants
In most cases, your CSV file will be available instantly. However if you have many variants or many rows on your CSV file, it won't be ready before a few minutes. No worries! You can still continue to create content on Mark, you'll receive a link via email to download your file when it's ready! 🙌
