For a tool that is rated 4.9/5 by over 1000 customers, Jasper better live up to its expectation.
Well, let’s find out. In this Jasper AI Review, I purposely decided to show you the ins and outs of generating AI content rather than focusing on the generic info… those ones, I have stashed them in the FAQ section, in case you want to know who founded Jasper or why Dave’s personality is represented in the Jasper representation
In this Jasper AI Review, I will take you through the Jasper Experience, so you can decide if it’s worth adding it to your arsenal of tools.
Jasper AI is used by about 40,000 customers, though an impressive number, given that this tool was launched barely eight months ago, it would be disrespectful to assume that everyone else in the creator’s industry knows what Jasper is.
So, let’s not do that.
Note: In this Jasper AI Review, the shortcuts used are for Windows, If you are using Mac, simply use CMD instead of CTRL.
What’s Jasper AI?
Jasper AI is an AI content generator that helps to generate sales copy, social media copy, and SEO-optimized blog posts in minutes. It uses artificial intelligence technology to do this.
Formerly known as Jarvis AI, and Conversion AI, Jasper is a powerful GPT-3 powered AI writing assistant that helps content developers and marketers crank up informative and persuasive content for different use cases in minutes.
That’s right! What used to take several hours, or in some cases, days, can now be accomplished in 3 hours or less. We are talking about:
- Year-long social media copy generated in a day
- 10,000 words of long-form content
- 2000 words sales page copy powered by the popular AIDA, and PAS frameworks. Etc.
- 100 variants of high converting ad copy
- Personalized cold outreach emails… no more generic cold outreach templates that even new bloggers can spot from miles away.
- Hundreds of content ideas, and catchy headlines generated in minus.
In fact, many have described this tool as seeing magic unfolding right before your eyes. Simply feed in your seed keyword, introduction, and hit compose. And voila! A powerful copy is written for you in a matter of seconds.
About Jasper AI (Jarvis)
Jasper AI started off as a copy tool, that’s why the brand Conversion AI, made sense in the beginning. However, as users tinkered with the tool, they started asking for more… humans!
We are exceptional at best… So the humans, I mean, we, started demanding (politely) an intuitive editor, and as if that wasn’t enough, many of us wanted to write full-blown articles instead of short and social copy. What do we say, it’s only a few of us who have established businesses with copy needs, the rest of us run media companies, aka, blogs…
So, like a good startup, the Jasper team listened… We wanted a long-form assistant then, as in, Now, as applied in February 2021. Jasper read between the lines and understood that we were not gonna give them the luxury of spending 4 months developing the assistant, so as shrewd as Dave and Austin are, they found a faster way to meet our demands. Acquisition!
That’s right. They found a tool that already had this functionality, acquired it, improved it, and integrated it into Jasper. This single adoption is what, according to me, turned Jasper on a whole new leaf. Headlime AI happened to Jasper, and courtesy of this, people are hitting publication way faster than ever, without sacrificing quality over productivity.
Since then, Jasper has made other acquisitions including Shortly AI

Who is Jasper AI for?
If you are a marketer, business owner, or content developer with the following traits:
- You don’t have much time to write quality copy for your social media accounts and blog
- Your team lacks writers – be it because of lack of training, haven't hired any due to budget constraints, or simply no one on board who can crank out high-quality content.
- You are not an expert copywriter and don't have time to learn the ropes but your team urgently needs to put out highly targeted converting copy for your business needs.
Jasper AI is perfect for marketers, business owners, or newbies who want to create high-quality blog posts without hiring a copywriter on board. It’s also ideal for experts who need to create content rapidly.
You can create awesome content in minutes.

Jasper AI Pricing?
Jasper AI offers two pricing plans:
Starter plan from $29/Month: This is a limited plan that allows you to generate up to 20,000 words per month. With this plan, you do not have access to the long-form assistant, document management, and Jasper commands. This plan is suitable if you just want to create short copy for use in social media, YouTube scripts, or email campaigns and sequences.
BossMode Starting at $59 Month: This is a Jasper power plan that comes with extra features that makes you the boss of the copy. Unlock the compose command so that you can continue running the generator without having to write some more first. You also have access to the long-form assistant and document management. This makes it super easy to create long-form content such as sales page copy and blog posts.
What Makes Jasper AI Better than Other AI Writing Tools?
There are dozens of features of Jasper AI and Jasper brand that make Jasper the industry's leader, that many customers are raving about, including:
1) Ask Jasper —Jasper Commands
Jasper Commands is a feature shipped with BossMode
Without using templates, you can instruct Jasper to do literally anything by simply entering the command and hitting CTRL/CMD + ENTER keys. To keep your command lines after running the commands, just use CTRL/CMD + SHIFT + ENTER
Note that after generating what you are looking for with the commands, simply use the regular CTL + J or Jasper compose button and Jasper will continue the format started by your commands. For instance, if you were generating an outline, Jasper will continue generating some more before breaking off to other sections of the article.
How to Ask Jasper to Build Up Components of Your Blog Post, Step by Step
For instance, if you are working on an article about becoming a freelance writer, make sure you have your proposed H1, i.e, your blog post heading or topic, in the document and you can create sections by simply running the following commands:
- Generate blog post ideas for the above
- Generate blog post titles for the above
- Create a blog post intro for the above
- Generate an outline for the above
Let's pause there for a bit. After you have your title generated and chosen, turn it into H1 as hierarchy and formats are crucial to Jasper.
Ask Jasper to Generate Blog Intro
Proceed to generate the blog post intro by running the third command above.
Now, choose the most appropriate intro that fits into your topic and your writing style.
Before proceeding, edit your intro, and break it into different paragraphs as and when necessary.
Ask Jasper to Generate a Blog Outline
Once you are done with the introduction, run any of the following commands to generate an outline
- Generate an outline for the above
- Generate blog outline for (Enter Title Here)
Sometimes you might need to do a few runs before getting a great outline. If the outline is not complete, or you just want to add more items, just place the cursor at the end of the last item, hit compose and Jasper will continue the listicle format, adding in more subheadings.
Tip: Arrange your subheadings in the preferred format, rewriting some for brevity and clarity.
Once you are done, highlight your outline and format it with H2, to turn them into subheadings.
Ask Jasper to Expand Sections from Your outline.
The next step in your AI content generation process using Jasper commands is to ask Jasper to expand the section.
To do that, move the cursor to the end of the subheading you want to work on, press ENTER to create a new paragraph, and then ask Jasper to create paragraphs based on the subheading.
You can try the following commands:
- Write a paragraph on (paste subheading one here)
- Write about (paste subheading one here)
For our case above, we have the following instruction and the output:
For every section, make sure you edit it first so that it’s ready to publish, before moving on to the next.
This way, you are better at instructing Jasper on the format and the direction/angle of your article or marketing copy. Think of this as cleaning up data (information before the next generation), so that Jasper has a more accurate data source on which to base its next predictions.
Ask Jasper to Write a Conclusion
To finish up your piece, generate a conclusion for your article. You can run a Jasper command like:
- Generate a conclusion for the above
- Write a conclusion
- Run the conclusion template on the above.
Alternatively, simply add a Conclusion section, format it as a subheading by using H2 or H3 tags, and then press ENTER to start a new paragraph. On hitting compose, Jasper will know that you want to run a conclusion template, and thus will generate one for you.
Move on to the rest sections repeating the process above.
Note: Jarvis was renamed Jasper AI
More Jasper Commands to Optimize Your article
Remember that when it comes to Jasper Commands, you aren’t limited to what you can ask Jasper to do.
For example, let’s say in writing our article on becoming a freelance writer, I stopped to wonder whether there are highly paid freelance writers. Of course, they are, but I didn’t have time to go search for something that Jasper probably already knows.
So in the middle of anywhere, I simply write the command below, press CTL/CMD + ENTER, and magically I have suggestions brainstormed for me by Jasper.
- Run content improver on the above paragraph
Is this what they call Dancing With Jasper?
2) Best Long-form AI Assistant Editor
Another thing that I cannot fail to mention in this Jasper AI Review is the long-form assistant, which is quite user-friendly and allows for even more features.
With the long-form editor, you can generate long-form copy and SEO blog posts using CTRL + J to generate copy or CTRL+ ENTER to run Jasper commands.
This editor now allows you to do a number of things including:
- Adding links using CTRL + K, or using the insert link on the top toolbar
- Format using headings, bold, and font size options
- Italicize using CTRL + I
You can also simply toggle the power mode to use both the long-form assistant and 40+ templates from one viewpoint, making it easier to build up sections making up your blog posts, including AIDA intros, conclusions, outlines, etc.
- Ability to add alternate texts to Images
- Ability to turn on full-screen mode to minimize distractions when proofreading your article.
- It only allows up to H3 headings, and there isn’t much difference visually between H3 and the paragraphs type.
That said, it is still the best AI editor, compared to what others are offering. Jasper has managed to keep it super simple and clean, and it’s way faster than when using other AI content generators.
3) 40+ Powerful Templates
While this feature is not exclusive to Jasper, its templates are pretty much better at generating copy that is almost usable right away, the first time. Some of the notable templates that I use frequently are:
a) Copywriting-frameworks powered templates
AIDA: This stands for Attention, Interest, Desire, and Action. You can use this to write short sales copy, social media promos, Ads, etc. Here is one I generated for my blog management service:
Other popular copywriting frameworks-powered templates on Jasper include Problem—Agitate—Solution (PAS), Before—After—Bridge, Feature to Benefits, etc.
b) Templates for Brainstorming
These templates help you brainstorm ideas when you’re stuck, or when you just looking for a different approach to particular messaging.
Marketing Angles: Use this to add vibrancy to your marketing. This template helps you brainstorm different approaches to communicate your message to target customers.
Other Jasper templates suitable for brainstorming needs include:
- Blog Post Topic Ideas

- Persuasive bullet points

e) Social Media Templates
Social Media Marketing is a powerful strategy that can work wonders when done right. However, managing social media on your own is not easy as it involves creating and scheduling tons of content.
With Jasper, you can now literally create a year’s worth of social content in a weekend.
Creative story: Use this template to create highly engaging stories for your social media audience. I just used this template to see what comes up when I run it for an Ai writing firm, dubbed XDDifference. In the plot field, I wrote:
Notice how I cleverly indicated to the AI the direction I want it to take by informing it what is the truth about the subject being argued. Now, Jasper, take it over buddy:
Other great social templates to use are:
- Quora Answers
- Photo Post Captions
- Personal Bio
- Engaging Questions
- Persuasive Bullet Points
There are many others that I have not mentioned in this review, but the above should give you an idea of what you can accomplish with this tool.

5) Jasper Recipes
Content creation involves a series of steps. For instance, when writing an article, your process will look like this:
- Write SEO Title
- Write an introduction
- Write a blog outline
- Write section content based on the outline
- Write a blog conclusion
Of course, you do have processes for content research, editing, and formatting, but Jasper Recipes are for content writing only.
Now, we can use Jasper commands to generate content based on the steps above, but having to write a command every time can be tiring, especially when you are following the same steps when writing particular content types.
This is where Recipes come in. You can convert your processes into recipes and click to run with just one click. In your dashboard, you have default Jasper Recipes that you can run, have access to community recipes created by other super-users like you, or even create your own.
One of the most used recipes is Blog Post Recipe. Simply hover on it and click ‘open recipe’ to be taken to the details page.
On this page click ‘Run’ to use it to create a new document for you.
On clicking Run, the tool duplicates the template and uses it to create a new document. You will then be redirected to this document with the commands prepopulated.
Simply enter your details in the parenthesis, place the cursor at the end of the command line, and press CTRL+ENTER to run the command. Start from the top and move on down the page.
