The Top AI Content Writing Tools in 2021 Compared

Published: 1 month ago

"Hey AI, write an article about artificial intelligence content writing tools."

No, we didn't actually do that for this comparison between the best AI tools to create written content (and replace copywriters), but you can reasonably use these tools to do just that!

Intro To AI Copywriting/Content Creation

When you write content that will be seen by many users online, you want it to be as error-free as possible. You also want to be able to set the right tone for your audience. Even if you don’t have your personal copywriter at your disposal, there are several online writing tools that go way beyond the power of Microsoft Word’s spell check feature.

Grammarly, may be the most famous tool in this market, but there are many more to choose from. These tools are quite advanced and you will probably be tempted to try one by the end of this article.

As I mentioned above, basic word processing programs like Google Docs and Microsoft Word all have spell checking features. However, blogs and websites are now a standard part of the majority of businesses. Some sites post several pieces of new content daily. Just using a basic spell check tool won’t cut it and everyone simply can’t afford a proofreader.  

The evolution of copywriting tools.

The evolution of copywriting tools, starting with a typewriter, moving to word processors (like Microsoft Word), evolving into "writing assistance tools" (like Grammerly), and finally ending with AI writing tools.

AI software writing tools step in and fill that gap as much as possible. Artificial intelligence technology is used to review and audit grammar, suggest better sentence structure, auto-finish a word and more. Let’s look at this list below to get an idea of how AI technology is changing the game in assisting online writing production.

With that, let's take a look at the top AI content writing tools on the market, as of October, 2021.

Jarvis

If you need help personalizing your text or want to see how creative an API can be, Jarvis may be the tool for you. When you use Jarvis, it can match your style of writing. Poems, articles and blog posts can all be co-written with the Jarvis tool.

I assume you are asking, “How does Jarvis, a computer tool,  co-write a creative piece of work like a poem?’. Jarvis acts like a twin sibling - it can finish your sentences for you. You can start the sentence and Jarvis will read your mind and finish it.

OK, it does not read your mind, but it is built with a pretty cool algorithm that can create art in response to your words. Each word is translated into an image by way of  algorithms and libraries in the program. Leonardo Di Vinci would be so proud.

Program Features

The tool has an internal database that houses over one million sentences. Star elements in your writing are matched with these prehoused phrases and sentences. Jarvis is not only for creatives that need a digital muse to help with a poem. Jarvis can juggle several hats and assist with articles, business documents and any other type of writing you can think of.

Find and Replace : Search your text for particular words by synonym or keyword.

Lookup : Pronouns, places,adjectives,verbs and names can be identified in your text

Fonts and Styles: Jarvis has over 2,500 writing category styles to choose from. You also have access to 11,000 free fonts. You can also pick different text colors.

Paraphrases and Quotes: When you use quotes or paraphrase other content in Jarvis, it is able to identify it. So you can easily cite your sources without keeping track.

Punctuation: Jarvis is smart enough to add common punctuation that you may forget as you type fast.

Cost

Regarding pricing, there are three levels to choose from. All plans come with an optional free trial.

Starter : This price comes with the core features, and the ability to access 20,000 words per month and 50+ writing skill types like bios, headlines, articles, descriptions, and more.

Pro: This pricing costs $109 monthly and gives the user access to unlimited words. This is useful for those that want to write video scripts and books.

Boss Mode: Users get full access to all features for $119. There are no limitations on word count.

This is actually a platform that our agency subscribe to because of the depth of features and content quality (it's really good, click here for examples).

Snazzy

Snazzy is an AI writing tool geared towards marketers. This tool can be used for copywriting blogs and business pitches. Social media post templates and landing page templates are provided for you. Whatever web-focused copy style of writing you can think of, Snazzy can help you with.

This tool uses an independent deep-learning language model known as GPT-3 in cohesion with its own proprietary technology. The features can be defined as tools, templates and saved content.

Like Jarvis, this AI writing source can help you finish a sentence with a particular tool. Content Extender will create a complex sentence from your bullet point or simple sentence. Sentence length and tone are customizable.

Play online DJ with your content and use the Remix tool to make unlimited versions of one piece of writing. 

Based on reviews, the produced content is easily manipulated and well-written.

Peppertype.ai 

This AI writing tool has a very clean dashboard that resembles Basecamp. You have access to several templates and use cases. Peppertype uses PAS, AIDA, Feature to Benefit, and the Before-After-Bridge copywriting framework.

Users have help generating social media content such as captions, topics for YouTube, Quora posts, and ideas for tweets. If you are a blogger or marketer, you can spend less time on social media content production.

Marketers will enjoy the AI generation of blog conclusions, outlines, meta descriptions, content expansion and rewriting. Facebook and Google ad copy is also available in this tool. 

The specific conclusion tool is rather nice. If you have a very long post or article, it may be harder than you think to write a succinct but thorough conclusion.

Lose your shyness about emailing new prospects. If you need to send cold emails, Peppertype can help generate content for that, as well as compelling email subject lines.

On the enterprise plan, your team has access to a customizable AI model, will be able to use their brand voice, have custom widgets and generate bulk content. Something tells me this plan may cost several hundred dollars but the features sound outstanding, highly adjustable, and comprehensive.

This tool does not come with live chat support. You do have access to a text-based knowledge center. Reviews say the knowledge center is quite helpful.

GPT-3

Now let’s talk a bit about GPT-3. This has been mentioned several times on this list, as most of the AI writing tools use it. Over 300 applications are using GPT-3 technology - a technology that currently generates about 4.5 billion words a day.

The GPT- 3 API completes any form of written text in a natural tone by way of deep learning.. It does not sound like a computer is speaking/writing as it can mimic human language.

Apparently, it only takes a few prompts or examples to program GPT-3. Several industries use this technology, such as education, gaming, marketing and more. This technology can find themes in our natural  human language and create summaries. One company, Fable Studio, is using GPT-3 technology to generate dialogue for characters in interactive stories.

Here's what OpenAI's playground for GPT-3 looks like.

Final Thoughts On AI Writing Tools

Technology continues to expand beyond places that once were hard to comprehend. After researching these tools, it is hard for me to be impressed with Grammarly. Don't get me wrong, Grammarly is still good for what it does, but these AI writing tools are taking human text to another level. 

All of these tools use the innovative GPT-3 technology that can mimic human speech. Some tools are better for bloggers and some are more focused on marketers. Some consider both. I am particularly impressed by Jarvis's ability to match words with images and am eager to test its ability to write a poem. I also think the search for quotes and paraphrasing is especially useful for academic or journalist writing.

I love the SEO real time scoring feature in Outranking. SEO can be such a tricky thing to master. So much great content gets buried on the internet due to a lack of search strategy. It is nice not having to guess if my keyword choice or placement is ideal without waiting for post launch analytics.

Overall, I am most impressed with the GPT-3 technology and can't wait to see what developers will do with the open API. I just hope that the creative value of writers is not dismissed because of the convenience of this groundbreaking AI.
