Unless you've been hiding under a rock for the past two years, you'll already know that AI has become the de facto tool in the world of content creation. But what you may not know is that Jasper.ai, the leading AI content generation platform in the industry, has been hard at work developing its next evolution - but what will that be?
Today, 24 hours ahead of the BIG REVEAL, I asked Jasper (the AI, not the company):
What will be the next evolution of Jasper AI?
"The next evolution will be a fully integrated AI assistant for all your content needs. With this new addition to our platform, users will have access to a personal AI assistant who can handle everything from keyword research and topic generation to content optimization and distribution. It's like having a dedicated team at your fingertips, ready to tackle any task thrown its way. But that's not all. We've also added in advanced sentiment analysis capabilities, allowing users to gauge the emotional impact of their content before it even goes live. And with seamless integrations with top social media platforms, the AI assistant can even handle scheduling and promoting your content for maximum reach. It's all part of our mission to make content creation easier and more efficient for our users, allowing them to focus on what really matters - creating high-quality, engaging content that drives results." - Jasper
Now, Jasper is a creative copywriter, so either I've hacked his brain and spoilt the surprise, or this is just an outstanding demonstration of Jasper's capabilities as a copywriter.
Either way, it's a win-win.
But on a more serious note...
What can you expect from Jasper today?
Right now, Jasper offers content creators - that's you - the ability to generate high-quality, unique content at scale via the Jasper web app. Using templates and workflows, you can generate copy for your business, blog, or brand, in just a few clicks.
With the recent addition of Jasper Art, you can create any image your imagination can conjure - just by using words. If you can describe it, Jasper can create it.
Who is using Jasper?
With over 70,000 active customers, Jasper is being used by Fortune 500 companies, digital agencies, startups, and small businesses, including IBM, HubSpot, Airbnb, Keller Williams, Harper Collins, Digital Marketer, and Scotts Cheap Flights.
But that's not all. Individual content creators - including bloggers, freelance writers, social media managers - are using Jasper to streamline their workflows and generate fresh ideas for their content strategy.
What's next for Jasper?
There has been much speculation since CEO Dave Rogenmoser announced the upcoming BIG REVEAL on Facebook.
Predictions have ranged from yet another name change (you can't blame them, since the whole Conversion AI > Jarvis AI > Jasper AI thing 🤷🏻♀️) to Jasper getting married.
Well, that was actually my prediction 😉 but it proved to be the most popular one!
Here's the thing.
Jasper listens. The company and the AI.
With a Facebook Group of over 70,000 members, that's enough opinions to move the needle when it comes to product development.
So what have Jasper users been asking for?
First and foremost, a Chrome Extension. We want to use Jasper everywhere!
[Spoiler Alert] If this is something you want, you won't be disappointed.
Dave already leaked this, so now I can tell you that I have been blessed to be part of the Chrome Extension Beta group. Over the past couple of months, I've been working with Jasper Senior Product Developer Sam Miller on this feature.
By providing real-time feedback on use cases and making suggestions for improvement, I am proud to have been involved in even a small way in helping make this a reality.
Jasper here, Jasper there, Jasper everywhere with the Chrome Extension
With the launch of the Chrome Extension, it will be possible to use Jasper wherever you are on Chrome - whether it be Gmail, Google Docs, Social Media or any website.
Write emails with Jasper in Gmail.
Have Jasper help you comment on Facebook.
Write in Google Docs.
Answer questions on Quora.
But that's not all. More updates and improvements will continue to roll out over time, as Jasper listens and continues to evolve based on user feedback and demand.
Keep an eye out for the Chrome Extension release in the BIG REVEAL.
Recently, select Jasper Boss Mode accounts have seen the new Workflow option available.
Those lucky enough to be part of the Blog Post Workflow Beta test had very positive comments. Some of these were voiced over in my Facebook group Blogs by Jarvis - Blogging with Jarvis (Jasper.ai).
My prediction is that we'll see a significant number of new workflows appear. Whether all at once or over time, I can't be sure, but if I'm right, and Jasper has been listening, we might see workflows for various blog post formats such as:
Product Pros and Cons
How To Instructions
Will Workflows replace Templates?
Jasper currently offer 3 different subscription plans - Starter, Boss Mode, and Business.
All 3 plans have access to the templates, but only Boss Mode and Business allow access to the long-form editor - with free-flow writing via COMPOSE and COMMANDS - where you'll find the new workflows.
So, whilst workflows offer a faster route to create content in a predefined format, they won't totally replace templates.
Talking of Templates
There are already over 50 templates available on all Jasper plans, but could there be more on the horizon? My spidey senses 🕷 say yes!
Recently, Saad Ansari - Director of Artificial Intelligence at Jasper - polled the Facebook group to gauge interest in a number of new templates.
Given the poll options and user suggestions, we could see templates for:
The Text Summarizer template is in Beta, and should roll out across all accounts soon.
What Jasper templates would you like to see added as a platform option?
Will there be a Jasper WordPress Integration?
I think I can safely say yes!
Well, there's already been a hint on the Jasper Art landing page. I spy a WordPress logo...
Why would a Jasper Wordpress integration be a game changer?
An integration with WordPress would mean you would save the time and hassle of copying and pasting your content from Jasper into WordPress. Imagine the possibilities for streamlining and automating your content marketing process!
Only time will tell if and when this integration will happen tomorrow, but I have high hopes.
Will there be advancements in Jasper Art?
Jasper Art has been available since late August and is ready to come out of Beta.
Will this mean higher resolution images, more sizes and formats, and possibly text capability?
That's the million-dollar question! One that I can't answer, unfortunately. However, given there have been multiple requests for this from users in the Jasper Facebook group, it could definitely be possible. Update: We are already getting a sneak peek of some of the new Jasper features that will be announced later today...
AI Image upscaling to 2048 x 2048 🎉
If you don't see this upscaling feature yet, don't worry, it's coming to all Jasper Art subscribers.
If you haven't signed up yet for Jasper Art yet, now is the time. Unlimited AI generations for $20/mo. That price may change after the announcement today. However, there is a good chance - no guarantees, but this is what we have seen in previous launches - if your subscription is active, you can lock in the $20 price.
It's highly likely that a free trial of Jasper Art could soon be available.
What else can we expect during the BIG REVEAL?
Will we see Jasper in a Tux as he walks down the aisle?
Is there a Baby Jaby on the way?
Or is it all just speculation?
I wouldn't rule out an integration or partnership being announced during the BIG REVEAL. With whom? Now that would be telling 😉
If past announcements are an indication, we've seen: Acquisitions such as Headlime & Shortly.ai. New feature announcements like Boss Mode. The Jasper Bootcamp and Certification. Integrations with Surfer, Grammarly and Copyscape. Free courses for SEO Copywriting, Website Copywriting and the AI Content Agency Course.
The future of content creation is here.
Thinking about the future of Jasper, I can see even more advancements coming our way. I mean, Dave does love to ship presents 🎁 for Christmas 🎄
With a posse of 100+ employees, the sky's the limit for this AI writing assistant! One thing is for sure - it's exciting to be a part of the Jasper community and witness the evolution of this amazing tool.
P.S. Shout out to the Jasper team for their hard work and dedication to constantly improving the platform! Keep up the great work.
Tune in for the BIG REVEAL on the 18th October, where Jasper will be announcing the next evolution in content creation - and it's BIG! Trust me - you won't want to miss it.
In the meantime, try out Jasper for yourself and experience the power of AI-powered content creation. Happy writing!
