      About Writesonic

      Writesonic is an AI Writing Assistant founded by Samanyou Garg in 2020, and headquartered in San Francisco, USA. It empowers users to generate content swiftly for articles, blogs, ads, marketing, eCommerce, social media, and more. 

      With a focus on high-quality content creation at lightning speed, Writesonic harnesses AI and natural language processing.

      Notably, it has secured $2.6 million in funding from leading Silicon Valley VC firms, driving swift platform development.This makes Writesonic a promising tool also for the upcoming updates.

      And as we said before, Writesonic is extremely popular. Can you believe it that in April 2023, at its peak, 33k people searched for “WriteSonic” on Google, and that last month 194k people made a Google search that included “Writesonic” in the query!

      Writesonic relies on GPT-3.5 and GPT-4, the latest language prediction model, known for their robust AI text generation capabilities, producing superior outputs from user inputs.

      Features of Writesonic

      Basically, WriteSonic has 7 sections of templates, namely:

      1. Article and Blogs
      2. Ads and Marketing Tools
      3. General writing
      4. E-commerce
      5. Social Media
      6. Website Copy 
      7. Others

      Let’s explore the features available in these sections in detail and how they perform, while focusing especially on what makes WriteSonic unique from the ocean of AI writers on the market. (here our full list, by the way!)

      WriteSonic stands out by introducing its unique chatbot named Botsonic, which made a great impression on us, and we will show you how to make the best of it. 

      So first, we will take a look at two special features before proceeding with the common features, since we don’t want to leave you hanging midway!

      1. Botsonic

      How cool would it be to master customer support with a no-code chatbot in a world filled with coding and tech languages? Writesonic has recently developed a fantastic chatbot – drum roll, please… Botsonic!

      Botsonic is a user-friendly ChatGPT-enabled chatbot that allows you to train your own customized chatbot for your website. 

      You have two options: either upload the manual or details about your website or enter the URL, and the chatbot crawler will fetch all the necessary information from that link.

      The latter is what we suggest, especially by using the sitemap feature. This will allow you to get your chatbot instructed about all the knowledge available on your website, with just one click.

      The customization options are many as well! You can change the colors, add company logos, and even switch up the chatbot picture. In short, you can have your chatbot’s branding to match your business or website.

      The ability to customize messages is another feature of this chatbot, such as the opening message. However, what you really have to focus on, is the chatbot guidelines. Here, you can have the chatbot to behave as you prefer, and the only limit is your creativity!

      You can tell him to be funny, to use specific punctuation, to always link to your website products or anything else.

      Below, the prompt we used for one of our chatbots.

      “Be polite and do some jokes.
      Refuse to answer questions which are not related to ‘website name’.
      If not sure what to say, answer “hmm, I am not sure” and suggest sending an email to our human support.
      Use at least one emoji per answer.
      Always link to our services at the end of the answer.”

       

      You can also ask him to refuse to answer to anything which is not related to your website or niche, in case you want to save credits.

      But wait, there’s more – because one of best parts is the API integration, making linking a breeze. Check this video demo below for easy understanding! 

      And, why we love this so much? Well, if you’re new to the chatbot niche, you should take a peek at our live chat statistics to understand the actual importance of chatbots and how they can increase conversion.

      Recently, we used Chatbase for testing purposes, and it’s pretty cool too. You should definitely check out this tool too if the only thing you need is a chatbot.

      2. Photosonic

      Recently, many of the budding AI writer tools and trending AI writers have introduced image generation features. Similarly, Writesonic has its image generation feature called Photosonic.

      Here, you can get ready to unleash your creativity! Whether you’re in the mood for a wacky surreal painting, a classic minimalist illustration, or some robot fun with clipart, Photosonic has got your back.

      You can create completely unique art pieces and photo-realistic images with just a click of a button. Creating art has never been this simple.

      How to use it? Some cool ideas are social media posts, featured images for your AI generated blog posts, or even using them for your website design or video creation.

      Here are some of the generated images,

      Head over to your Writesonic dashboard and dive into the world of Photosonic now! It’s time to bring your artistic visions to life effortlessly. If you have any queries, check this Video below for a better understanding!

      3. AI Article writers

      As usual with AI writers, here you can find templates like Conclusion Writer, AI Article Outlines, AI Article Intros, AI Article Ideas, Rewriter, Paragraph Writers, Blog Titles, and more. Since you’re already familiar with these features, we won’t go into detail about them. Let’s focus on the unique features of WriteSonic:

      1. AI Article Writer 5.0
      2. AI Article Writer 4.0
      3. Instant Article Writer

      AI Article Writer 5.0 and 4.0

      The 5.0 version is powered by GPT-4, which means your content will be highly optimized for SEO and competitor analysis. 

      With this version, you can generate long-form articles in just two simple steps. First, choose the topic and select or upload reference articles as input

      Then, customize your article by selecting languagetones, voice and adding keywords for SEO purposes. That’s it! Within 2 minutes, a complete long-form blog post is ready to publish. 

      You can also decide if you want to use GPT-3.5 or GPT-4. But we will look deeper into this and which one to use, later.

      One of the great things about this version (AI article writer 5.0) is that it’s up-to-date and keeps your content fresh. For instance, we tested with the topic, “White Hat SEO techniques” See the carousel below for more details!

      Well, regarding the 4.0 Version, the process remains the same but in three steps. An additional step is needed for outline and ideas. As a result, we like the version 5.0 better, since AI is all about making things fast, and we did not see any difference in quality among the two.

      But let’s make a quick example. For instance, let’s say we chose “Role of SEO in Digital Marketing” and spiced it up with a few keywords. Check out the rest of the process below!

      Instant Article Writer

      As we’re familiar with the lovely and powerful option of One-click article creators, which we’ve previously reviewed, especially when testing Wordplay capabilities, let’s take a look at the similar yet remarkable Writesonic “Instant Article Writer”. 

      This powerful tool allows you to generate a full-fledged article consisting of approximately 1500 words with just a single click, using nothing but a well-crafted title.

      The convenience and efficiency offered by this feature are unparalleled, as it saves considerable time and effort in producing lengthy and engaging articles. 

      It’s worth mentioning that the process is slightly different from the traditional Writesonic’s approach. In this case, you’re solely required to provide a precise and compelling title, and based on that, the AI engine automatically generates content relevant to the topic.

      While the ease of use is undoubtedly enticing, it’s crucial to consider that the tool’s effectiveness depends greatly on the accuracy and specificity of the title. To achieve optimal results and ensure the generated content is highly relevant and coherent, crafting a title that effectively captures the essence of the article’s subject is essential!

      Also, you have less control over the content, starting from the sources to be used when crafting your article.

      So, what is better, Instant Article or Article Writer 5.0? In our opinion and based on our testing, if you are planning to use your AI generated content for some important website and you want to have more control over the output, go with Article Writer 5.0.

      But, if you want to churn quality articles in the fastest time, maybe for link building purposes or secondary projects, Instant Article is perfect!

      Check the screengrabs below about some Instant Article generation.

      4. Ads and Marketing Tools

      Within the realm of ads and marketing tools, Writesonic offers diverse options to cater to your specific needs. Among these tools, there are seven nice templates that you can leverage to enhance your marketing strategies:

      1. Facebook Ads
      2. LinkedIn Ads V2
      3. Google Ad Titles V2
      4. Google Ad Descriptions V2
      5. App and SMS Notification
      6. LinkedIn Ad Description and 
      7. LinkedIn Ad Headlines

      Most of these templates are designed as short-form content to communicate your business message to your audience effectively, especially for paid ads or LinkedIn. But let’s see this unique ‘App and SMM Notification’ feature in more detail. 

      App and SMM notifications

      With this feature, you can create compelling notification messages for your apps, websites, and mobile devices to keep users engaged and coming back for more. How to utilize this tool effectively?

      Step 1: Provide a description of the notification content. 

      Step 2: Choose the desired language for the notifications. 

      Step 3: Click on “Generate App Notifs” to create your notifications.

      Feel free to regenerate more notifications whenever needed. For instance, we tested with “Text-to-Speech tools” as an input. Check the output below to see the results.

      As you see, it provided us with many short sentences with a clear click-to-action goal based on our description.

      5. General writing

      In the general Writing template, there are over 20 different tools available. We will not review them singularly, but below is a list of them. We highlighted in bold the ones that we rated to be the most useful or special!

      1. Personal Bios V2 (great for link building)
      2. Text Extender (need more words to rank better or re-purpose content? Get help from this tool)
      3. Company Bios V2
      4. Content Rephrase (allows to re-use content while avoiding plagiarism)
      5. Quora Answers (we are big fans of Quora marketing!)
      6. Content Shorten (TL;DR, anyone?)
      7. Stories (great to create creative content, i.e. for social media posts)
      8. Bullet Point Answers
      9. Passive to Active Voice
      10. Definition
      11. Answers
      12. Pros and Cons (gives a new point of view)
      13. Questions (have a FAQ section on your website, or need new ideas to generate related content? This tool is worth a try)
      14. Emails V2
      15. Rewrite With Keywords (great to increase keyword weight and rank better for specific keywords)
      16. Email Subject Lines
      17. Cold Emails V2
      18. Company Mission
      19. Company Vision
      20. Job Description Generator

      Rewrite With Keywords

      Now, we’d actually like to dig deeper into a feature which we have not seen before in any other AI writer, but which can be quite amazing when used right. “Rewrite With Keywords“is a relatively new addition to the toolkit of Writesonic, and allows to increase the keyword density of existing content. This, is especially useful if you are planning to rank for a given keyword or search query!

      For Instance, we tried with “How to write a blog post?” content and added a few keywords for rewriting; check the screengrab for the output; it’s relatively efficient and engaging, and not just focused on our given keyword. 

      6. Chatsonic (Like ChatGPT, but better)

      Chatsonic is an advanced conversational AI companion. It is very similar to ChatGPT; however, it can fetch new information from the internet on the go and therefore, provide more accurate data. In fact, it is integrated with Google search for real-time information, and also AI image generation as well as voice commands for hands-free interactions. 

      In fact, if you use ChatGPT and try to instruct the tool on existing webpages or ask him to get information from a website…that won’t be possible.

      But Chatsonic from Writesonic is able to do so, being a valuable tool for people who want to get content written or ask for information by providing links to a specific website or webpage. 

      Additionally, Chatsonic remembers past conversations and context, making follow-up questions effortless. It also features the convenience of Text-to-Speech functionality, like Siri or Google Assistant do.

      And you can customize Chatsonic’s personality to interact as a teacher, fitness trainer, or any persona you prefer… even a SEO specialist!

      This all-in-one AI companion is able to provide accurate, context-aware responses, whether you seek knowledge or engaging discussions.

      For Instance, we have tried with few conversations with the chatsonic, like, 

      • Us: Can you write a blog post?
      • Chatsonic: Of course! I’d be happy to write a blog post for you. Could you please provide me with a topic or a specific subject you’d like the blog post to be about?
      • We: Write a blog post about the top 10 SEO statistics. 

      The output is down here!

      7. E-commerce

      Under the E-commerce section, users can access five engaging and versatile templates catering to a range of copywriting and promotional needs. These are especially handy for Amazon sellers

      The five available templates are as follow:

      1. Product Description: Craft compelling and persuasive descriptions that highlight the unique selling points of products, enticing potential customers to make a purchase.
      2. Amazon Sponsored Brand Ads Headline: Create attention-grabbing headlines for sponsored brand ads on Amazon, drawing in viewers and increasing click-through rates.
      3. Amazon Product Description: Develop persuasive and informative content tailored specifically for Amazon product listings, helping to enhance product visibility and sales.

      5. Amazon Product Titles: Optimize product titles for Amazon listings, ensuring they are informative and enticing to potential buyers.

      These templates offer a fast and creative way for businesses to enhance their e-commerce presence, ultimately driving higher sales and success.

      However, if you are running a high-end e-commerce store, we always suggest getting a second opinion from an expert human copywriter.

      8. Social Media

      Under the Social Media section, there are 13 templates available to enhance your social media presence. Let us enhance in bold the templates we liked the most!

      1. Twitter Threads V2: Craft engaging and well-structured Twitter threads to share longer thoughts and ideas.

      11. YouTube Ideas: Generate innovative ideas for your YouTube content to keep it fresh and engaging, based on keywords or niche. While this is interesting, we believe manual research will always drive the best results when it comes to YouTube.
      12. YouTube Outlines: Structure your YouTube videos with detailed outlines to maintain a smooth flow of information.
      13. YouTube Titles: Write catchy and SEO-friendly titles for your YouTube videos to improve discoverability and click-through rates. Since titles are essential for CTR and a video’s success, you should try it out if you own a YouTube channel.

      If social media content production and publishing is a major part of your workflow, however, we recommend a tool which specializes on this. We have a list of the best social media AI managers for this purpose.

      If you need to produce social media content just occasionally, then Writesonic will be able to handle the task just fine.

      Now, let’s quickly take a look at video hooks, a feature we think can be great to increase viewership retention and build suspense! 

      Tiktok (& YouTube) Video Hooks

      Creating a compelling video that attracts viewers is quite tricky, and it takes time to master those skills. But the mos important part is the beginning of a video, whether that is on YouTube, Instagram on TikTok.

      The beginning of your video – especially the first 15 seconds – are crucial for viewer retention, and creating a strong hook can make all the difference. 

      That’s where WriteSonic comes in. With just a few words to explain your video content, WriteSonic’s TikTok or YouTube video hooks assist you in crafting engaging opening lines! Check out the screenshot below,
