 What Jasper Knows

Before you can make the most of using Jasper, you need to understand how Jasper thinks. Understanding how Jasper thinks will greatly improve your ability to get high-quality content and troubleshoot low-quality content.

The underlying AI model that powers Jasper was trained by reading about 10% of the published internet, with the goal of understanding how people write. Jasper has read millions of blog posts, Reddit threads, websites, newspapers, and more. This gives Jasper an unbelievable grasp of imitating the human language and creating content most find exceptional.

The base training was completed at the end of 2019. That means Jasper doesn't know about current events from January 2020 and beyond. Jasper doesn't know COVID-19 happened.

This is the point some will say, "Jasper can't help me then! I write topics that are new since 2019!"

While Jasper may not know about COVID-19 or that the Lakers won the 2020 NBA Championship, he does know vast amounts about coronaviruses, pandemics, Wuhan, SARS, Lebron James, Basketball, The Lakers, and NBA. By feeding Jasper updated information about the topic you're writing about, you'll see Jasper can typically do a great job of writing about it.

For example, if I wanted Jasper to write about COVID-19, I would include up-to-date information in the content description. Check out our doc on how to write a factually accurate article for even more tips.


How To Build a Good Input

Whether you are using a template or document, you will want to remember these rules to get great outputs out of Jasper.

  1. Write what you want Jasper to include in his output.
    1. Provide Jasper with all of your essential facts.
  2. Write simply and clearly. 
    1. Bullet-point lists or short sentences are a great go-to. Let Jasper be the one to spice up the content.
  3. If you don't like an output, don't run the same input twice.
    1. Jasper won't always get it right the first time. Tweak words and sentence structure, cut down character count, or add more. 
    2. Experiment with different tones of voice and test what optimizes Jasper's outputs.

Troubleshooting

  1. Are you getting repetitive content in your outputs? 
    1. Templates: Edit your description box.
    2. Documents: Update your content brief. 
      1. You should think of the content description box inside a document as the information you want Jasper to use each time he composes text. 
      2. Because the content description guides the content Jasper writes each time you hit compose, Jasper will tend to repeat that information if you do not update the content description box. 
  2. How to get Jasper to write in an active tone of voice?
    1. Make sure your input is in the active tone of voice. Jasper writes based on patterns so he will mimic your style.
