– Content is more unique/specific than competitors making it a good partner for brainstorming

Cons

– Fewer template options than Jasper
–  Lacks a ‘Commands’ feature to instruct the AI on what to generate next within a piece of content
– ‘Article Conclusion Writer’ template did not do a very good job concluding the article and introduced new ideas and arguments

A good brainstorming tool with some very serious limitations

Writesonic is an AI-powered content generation platform that offers a variety of features and templates to assist in content creation. Like Jasper, Writesonic is designed to assist users in brainstorming and developing new content from scratch. However, having used Jasper in the past, I was not especially impressed with Writesonic’s capabilities. Most obviously, was the lack of commands within a document. This is a feature I’ve come to love in Jasper as it allows me to begin writing an idea, and then delegate responsibility to Jasper to expand the concept. The closest feature Writesonic offers is the ‘Sonic Editor’ which is an online document editor like Google docs. To be fair, Sonic Editor has a ‘Write with AI’ button at the bottom of the screen, but in testing Writesonic either had little to add or was overly verbose in its writing. One area where Writesonic shines above Jasper is in its connection to Google and the open web. Writesonic is more knowledgeable on a wider variety of topics, although it was not always 100% accurate in the data it provided. In some cases, it presented opinions as fact, which is good in the case of editorial writing, but not so good when those opinions contradict points made earlier in a piece of content. Overall, I’d say the Writesonic experience is superior to ChatGPT, but the lack of in-document commands like Jasper makes it inefficient to work with. To be fair, it produced content that is more unique and specific than Jasper, but it was hard to get over the inefficient UI and generally limited comprehension of content appearing earlier in a document. I could see this tool being superior to Jasper for brainstorming purposes, but less valuable for writers who have a concept nailed. I’d love to test it again once Writesonic’s developers address these issues as I see massive potential for a serious competitor to Jasper. But until then, I believe Writesonic is inferior to Jasper for everything but brainstorming.
