A Content Pro's Review of Jasper AI: How It Works & Is It Worth It?

Kendall | September 12, 2023 | AI

If you’ve done any research on AI for marketing, you’ve probably heard of Jasper AI. Having emerged as a prominent player in the generative AI domain, Jasper promises to revolutionize content creation, campaign development, and more. But how does it really work, and is it worth the investment? 

I’ll be the judge of that.

Just kidding, just kidding...

However, I will say that I do have some cred' as far as AI-generated content goes. I’m a content marketer who manages all stages of the content strategy and execution processes at Evenbound. I’ve been exploring AI tools for content creation for quite some time now, evaluating how well they help me do my job better and faster, as well as what value they can bring to my clients.

So let’s get into it! Here’s what I have to say about Jasper AI.

What Is Jasper AI?

Jasper AI is an AI-powered content generation platform designed to assist content creators and marketers in generating high-quality written content. It utilizes advanced natural language processing (NLP) and machine learning algorithms to produce human-like text. It's developed by OpenAI, the same organization behind the GPT-3 language model most marketers are familiar with by now.

Jasper’s claim to fame is creating branded content that follows voice and tone characteristics that you input. Where other generative AI systems require lots of inputs to get this done and ensure on-brand outputs each time, Jasper’s goal is to make it easy with stored brand voice guides for you, your company, or your clients.

Jasper AI Products Overview

Jasper’s ecosystem includes many AI-enabled marketing tools — most content-related, others varying. Here’s a closer look at what you can do on the platform:

Product Category Description
Brand Voice Guide Input unique characteristics of your brand’s voice, save them, and then use them to generate on-brand content every time.
Content Generation Create a wide range of content, including blog posts, articles, product descriptions, social media posts, and more.
Content Editing Refine and customize generated content to align with specific needs.
Content Summarization Condense long pieces of content into more concise summaries, which can be useful for creating snippets, meta descriptions, or executive summaries.
Keyword Research Explore relevant keywords and topics to optimize content for search engines.
Multi-lingual Support Globalize your content with translation resources.
Content Templates Choose from various content templates tailored to different purposes, such as storytelling, persuasive writing, or informative whitepapers.

Integrations & API Create on-brand, AI-assisted content in the tools you use every day. Or bring Jasper’s offerings right onto your own platform with the API.
Campaigns Create end-to-end marketing campaigns with just a simple brief.
Chat Have a 1:1 conversation with a chatbot that can help answer questions, do research, and more.


Who Jasper AI Best Serves

Jasper AI is a versatile solution that really anyone could use. However, the people that seem to benefit most from it are:

  • Content marketers - To generate consistent and high-quality content for their projects and campaigns. 
  • Bloggers and writers - To increase productivity and explore new content ideas.
  • E-commerce businesses - To create product descriptions and marketing materials efficiently.
  • SEO professionals - To optimize content for search engines.

Basically, if a significant portion of your workload involves writing, Jasper AI was built for you.


Jasper AI Pricing

Jasper AI offers subscription-based pricing, and the cost varies depending on your plan. Pricing is typically based on factors like usage, features, and the number of users. 

If you’re an individual hoping to drive some productivity? The cost will be fairly affordable. If you’re a business with high content demands, you can expect a more substantial expense. Here’s what the most popular rates look like today: 

Size Description Price
Creator (1 seat) Powerful AI features to create and improve your content everywhere you work online. $49/month or $39/year
Team (3 seats) Advanced AI features to create content for multiple brands and collaborate on campaigns. $125/month or $99/year
Business (unlimited seats) Personalized AI features with additional control, security, team training, and tech support. Tailored to company needs; Talk to sales

Keep in mind that if you’re a first-time user, Jasper offers a free trial to get you started. 

How Does Jasper AI Work?

Jasper AI's functionality relies on the GPT-3 model. It uses a combination of deep learning, NLP, and vast datasets to understand and generate human-like text based on the input provided by users. Users input a prompt or request, and Jasper processes the information to generate relevant content.

Here’s a step-by-step example of me creating a product description for a fictional cookie company. 

Step 1: Choose a Template

This is what Jasper's Product Description content prompting template looks like prior to inserting any information.

Step 2: Fill in the Prompts

Next, I fill in the prompts to the best of my ability. I include a customized brand voice for the company, as well as some descriptors like "friendly" and "casual."

Step 3: Generate Outputs

Badda-bing, badda-boom! Here are the outputs. There are two options.

Step 4: Edit

Like any other generative AI platform, I look at Jasper as a tool — not something that does all the work for me. So I follow up the output generation with some editing to really hone in the copywriting. (Did I write this article with Jasper’s help? Yes. Did I also edit extensively and elaborate on the original output? You betcha.)

Is Jasper AI Worth It?

And now to what you’ve probably been waiting for: is this all worth your investment? From my perspective, Jasper AI is worth it if you’re a content-heavy business with a solid budget. It streamlines processes, is easy to learn and use, and gets you a little closer to the on-brand outputs you’re looking for than some other tools do. 

However, if you don’t have a flexible budget or your content needs are irregular, I’d suggest using other tools for AI-based content creation. There are some less expensive, or even free, solutions that can get you close to where Jasper will get you (*cough* Chat GPT *cough*). It might take you a little more time and brain power for prompting, but that’s the price you pay for a cheaper solution.

To recap: 

Jasper AI Pros

  • Saves time
  • Great for brainstorming content suggestions
  • Easy customization
  • Lots of features and updates

Jasper AI Cons

  • Cost 
  • Output reliability varies
