Writesonc allows you to create SEO-optimized and plagiarism-free content for your blog, articles, ads, emails, and website landing pages. While Writesonic was initially for blog writing and SEO support, they’ve expanded their toolkit to be the go-to writing tool for all written content - including paid Facebook ads, Twitter threads, Amazon product descriptions, and TikTok Video Scripts. If it needs to be written down, WriteSonic is aiming for it. More recently, they’ve introduced “Photosonic” an integrated AI image generation tool, and “Botsonic”, a custom-made ChatGPT bot to embed on your website. This review will focus on their primary features, as “Photosonic” and “Botsonic” are still in beta.
So we decided to review Writesonic using Writesonic to write a review on WriteSonic. Similar to inception, but something that could give you a taste of the tool and our opinion on the primary use case, writing blogs and social media copy. To clarify, anything we wrote with Writesonic is quoted; everything else is us.
The first takeaway is ChatGPT-based tools, including Writesonic, have an issue with producing soft copy. They write a bunch of words without giving you any helpful information. As an example this section focuses on Writesonic’s pricing plans:
“Writesonic offers a range of pricing and plan options to suit the needs of different users. The tool offers a free trial option that allows users to test out the platform and generate a limited amount of content at no cost. For users who need more advanced features and capabilities, Writesonic offers several paid plans starting at $29 per month. These plans offer additional features such as unlimited content generation, team collaboration tools, and advanced customization options.” - Writesonic
Ah great? We made our website visitor read a paragraph with one incorrect data point ($29 per month). In reality, this is not very good and doesn’t help anyone. When we compare this to the alternatives, we get much of the same “soft copy”. For example, this was produced by Copy.ai, writing a review on Copy.ai.
“As a professional writer, I'm always on the lookout for tools that can help me improve my productivity and reduce the time I spend on writing tasks. That's why I was excited to try out Copy.ai, an AI-powered content creation tool that promises to help users generate high-quality content in minutes. In this review, I'll share my experience using Copy.ai and provide an in-depth analysis of its features, pricing, and more. So, without further ado, let's get started.” - Copy.ai
It’s a good intro but doesn’t provide specific information on Copyai. It doesn’t have a strong hook, nor does it want to make me read down the page. So back to Writesonic. What features stand out, and why would you use Writesonic over ChatGPT?
For blog articles, going from 0 to 1 with a strong SEO structure, the most compelling reason to use Writesonic over ChatGPT. You start with the keywords you want to rank for, find the idea, and get an outline - without having to optimize prompts or define instructions at each step. Within 5 minutes, you can go from a theoretical article to a publishable paragraph structure and soft copy to get you started. For reference, the topics Writesonic proposed for its review were:
- “The Ultimate Writesonic Review: Everything You Need to Know Before You Buy
- Introduction to Writesonic
- What is Writesonic, and how does it work?
- Features of Writesonic AI
- Writesonic pricing and plans
- Writesonic reviews - what are customers saying?
- Comparing Writesonic to other content creation tools
- Pros and cons of using Writesonic
- How to use Writesonic effectively
- Conclusion - is Writesonic worth it?”
- Quote Writesonic
That’s a reasonably strong title and paragraph structure with enough detail to get you started. So after toying with a few other features, writing Facebook Ads and YouTube video descriptions, we noticed a trend. Writesonic does a fantastic job of getting you past the planning and ideation stage of creating the content and can give you detailed outlines of what needs to be done. The few times we didn’t like the output, it didn’t really matter because we just clicked regenerate and got a different version.
