In this Jasper AI review, I want to share why despite it working and being a legitimate option for content generation, why in my personal opinion, the better alternative is actually writing your own content instead (and why it’s likely to be more successful for you in my opinion).
Note: Jasper A.I is the new name of the program. It was formerly known as Jarvis A.I.
Now to be clear:
Jarvis AI has numerous functions and branches, and the one I’m reviewing for you today is the one that deals with creating blog content, ad copy and copy written landing pages, all surrounding one topic: Online business.
I’ll get into the details shortly, but the spoiler is that besides not buying it but also having personally seen how it all works from a buddy who does use it, in my personal opinion, the best online businesses, and specifically any type of content you create should be done by your hand, by your unique voice, because that creates sincerity, authenticity and originality (and I would argue more success).
Before I explain more and show you how the Jasper AI program works, let me ask you a quick question:
If you were reading this blog post and you saw that it was designed by a bot vs written by an actual person, whose content would you trust more? In my opinion, it’s the person and that’s important for success.
A short summary and review of Jasper AI:
Who created Jasper AI?
There’s several people on the team, but Dave Rogenmoser is the CEO of the company.
How much does Jasper AI cost?
3 plans are available:
- $29 a month.
- $109 a month.
- $119 a month (5 day trial offer is presented here).
What does Jasper AI do?
It’s a very advanced tool that produces content for you in various areas, including blogging, making ad copies, and other things. You can select the subject matter, input some short info and get auto generated content you can then put up anywhere you wish for your online business needs.
For example, if you’re looking to produce more blog content on a specific topic, you can enter in all the necessary info into Jasper’s AI program and get content on that topic very quickly to then use on your site. This can cut down on writing it yourself and also help reduce/eliminate writer’s block.
Is Jasper AI a scam? No.
It really does exactly what it’s set to do. In fact, I have a personal friend who uses it and has shown me how well it works, and in many areas, it really is quite impressive and how well it can write up content for you.
That being said, the content does seem a bit “robotic” and to me, that takes away from authenticity and people sharing their unique voice, in their own words, and ultimately, the latter in my opinion is far more important for success online.
The former, is something that can be (and likely) and will be abused by many site owners who just want to crank out quick content, and that might lead to serious Google updates which can have severe impact on bloggers across the board.
My rating for Jasper AI: 2.5 out of 5 stars
Do I recommend it? I personally do not.
This program works exactly as designed and marketed from what I’ve seen (and that’s good on it’s own) and yes it will help you produce and crank out content faster. So yes, it is legitimate and yes it can help your business (if you understand how to use it in the right circumstances in m opinion).
However, I am very biased on this subject (of using auto generated software like this) because I think it distracts people (and makes them lazy) from building out their own unique voice and content based on that and can actually hinder their business in the long run.
I’ll explain more shortly, but while I understand the need for such a tool, that doesn’t mean I think it’s actually something you need. I certainly don’t and I think most successful copywriters and bloggers would understand my point here.
Your own unique voice and authenticity is what sells in my experience.
My video review of Jasper AI:
Want to know more about Jasper AI? Here’s a deeper review of it:
So let me say that I didn’t buy Jasper AI, but I did a bunch of research and have a friend who has the program that showed me everything I needed to see beforehand. First, let me share some sources:
Source 1. The person takes you inside the program and shows you how it makes an ad. Overall, it’s not bad, but based on what I saw, the ad could have been better written.
In my opinion, I could have written a better ad, even faster without having to use this tool (I know a lot about writing successful ad copies). And if you need proof, here are just some of my case studies:
Source 2. Another review of Jasper AI and it’s a bit more comprehensive and positive across the board. Yet once again, for me at least, I think that writing your own content is a better option in every regard. The key is knowing what you’re writing to make it all flow and convince people to buy.
Source 3. My buddy Jay, aka an affiliate coach has Jasper AI and he has shown me everything I needed to see and know about it, by showcasing examples of how it works so I have had a first hand look at the program.
Source 4. This is a review blog from Niche Pursuits of someone who used it. Overall, the review here was very comprehensive, satisfactory but not overly positive either. In the end, this person (from my perspective) concluded that this tool needs work and that bloggers benefit more from writing their own content (the last sentence led me to this conclusion).
I also wanted to test their offer for getting 10,000 words free. I however was disappointed to learn that I would first need to sign up for their most expensive plan. That would entitle me to 5 days of Jasper AI, but I didn’t want to go further from that.
I like testing tools for free without having to enter my credit card details and then decide from there. This approach is just not something I like:
My history with tools like Jasper AI:
When I first began writing content (well over a decade ago), content creation tools were already in existence, but they all had immense flaws, most typically in the following areas:
- They plagiarized content.
- They duplicated content in many instances.
- They created very poorly written content that was not understandable and would likely never rank or get results.
I reviewed, tested and tried many of them, and eventually stopped because they all had one or more of the above flaws. And by the time I became an experienced content creator, I realized how detrimental such tools were to my success.
Now to be fair, Jasper AI is a MUCH better tool than anything I’ve tested and seen in the past and in most cases, the above 3 problems I listed that were present in the old tools I tried, are probably not going to be the case here, and if there are issues, you can always adjust the content you get from Jasper AI to make it better. Although there are programs like Nichesss which are similar in this field and come close to it’s level.
However, even if that’s the case, the problem this presents is that in my opinion:
- It makes content creators lazy (you outsource your efforts to a tool).
- It can inhibit you from developing your own unique content creation skills (and your unique voice).
- I am not a fan of any done for you tools that people use without first having their own skill on the matter. In other words, if you’re not already a successful content creator and know what it takes, then using a tool like this might slow down your progress in this area.
- I am 50/50 on such a tool being used if you’re already experienced and can judge the level of content you get from Jasper AI (perhaps there’s a time and place for it then).
The point is, people always look for shortcuts in this business and I find that very often, the people seeking shortcuts (especially the inexperienced people) are unlikely to become successful doing this. In my opinion, there is no shortcut to online business success.
Conclusions: Jasper AI does work and is legitimate. However…
The main thesis of this post is to help people become independent of these types of such tools, because no matter how good they become at writing content, in the end, your best bet for success in online business is developing your own unique voice and writing content on subjects that you absolutely love.
Think about it:
Real people are reading your content. Bot content is very different than someone uniquely writing their own stuff, especially if they’re passionate about it and in my opinion, the passionate content wins, every time.
Yes it takes more work, but that is in my opinion the best place to be.
If you’re reading this now, I can almost 100% guarantee you that you’d look differently upon this content if you knew it was written by a bot vs a real person, speaking from the heart (and it would sound completely different too).
Now I totally get that most people can’t distinguish if content they read is from a bot, but I’m pretty sure the more you write from your heart, the more it’ll be implicitly felt. In my case, I naturally love content that is natural and it’s easy to feel and see that.
The problem I find with most people today who are not successful at online business is that the following things:
- They never pick niches/topics they love.
- Therefore their content sucks and they promote stuff they have no clue about.
- They may as well be called bots themselves because of the poor content they produce (they literally don’t know what they’re saying or just repeat talking points).
Trust is a cornerstone in online business success and the better (and more authentic) your content is, the better you will gain trust and make sales. People just naturally gravitate to content creators who speak from the heart and aren’t talking like robots (change my mind!).
And if you’re still reading this post, to this point, then I think I made my point clear.
Other Jasper AI questions:
Is Jasper AI any good?
Yes Jasper AI is a very good content creation tool, but I am personally not a fan of auto generated content writers and as a blogger recommend you write your own work instead as it’s has better long term advantages in my opinion.
How can I use Jasper AI for free?
Jasper AI does offer a 10,000 word free trial which you can check out. After that there are 3 other plans.
Why was Jarvis changed to Jasper?
Mainly due to Jarvis being associated with the Marvel brand of movies and to avoid issues and confusion.
Is Jarvis and Jasper the same?
Jasper AI used to be called Jarvis AI originally until certain issues occurred that caused the name to the program to change.
How much does Jasper writing cost?
There are several plans to using Jasper AI involved and they start at $29 a month for 20,000 words and reach up to $119 a month for way more benefits.
In the end: The best tool for content generation isn’t Jasper AI in my opinion, it’s you!
The key is to find a particular niche (that is popular) that you love and let your content flow from that. It’s so much easier to express yourself in content form (videos or ads for that matter) when you understand the topic you’re writing about. I cannot stress how important this is.
You can build an entire (and super successful online business) following this. And this is what I learned from Wealthy Affiliate, one of the most authentic programs for teaching people to monetize their passions.
If you’re new to online business (or are struggling like many), then this program can teach you the most important steps and fundamentals to developing your own niche blog in something you love and moving out from there.
As for Jasper AI, it is a legitimate tool (again), and the reviews are positive, but I believe most of those reviews are from people who use it’s surface benefits, and don’t really see the more long term issues with that. I see the other side of the coin on this subject and gave you my opinions on that.
On the other hand, if you’re an experienced blogger or copy writer (who writes their own stuff), I think you would understand my reasoning for suggesting people do their own stuff vs outsourcing to bots.
You should do as you feel right (ask me below if you’re still confused).
